In most cases, the best option of the two you mentioned is to crank up the budget and turn down the bids.
But this is not all about bidding strategy. There are many other factors that determine whether your campaign is successful.
It is very hard to fail with a low daily budget. It's also nearly impossible to succeed. If you feel that you're fence-sitting with your campaign, it may be time for a reality check.
