A drastic growth in sales through savvy remarketing using Google Ads

display ads

Utilising the Google Display Network (GDN) to run campaigns means you’re taking advantage of one of the most robust and powerful image ads platforms around. What’s more, it offers incredibly dynamic remarketing features as well.

Using Google Display Ads makes it seriously straightforward for any brand to tell their story, creating a fully unique buyer journey which has been developed with conversions and lead generation at the front of mind.

Unlike Google search ads which are fully text-based, your ability to use captivating imagery and visuals with display ads allows you to engage with your audiences much more easily, expanding your brand and reaching new prospective customers all over the world.

And because the Google Display Network is stretched across a multitude of different platforms including websites, mobile apps, online games, Gmail and YouTube, you can share highly targeted messaging to precise audience segments wherever they may be online.

Some of the stand-out metrics of Google Display advertising include:

  • They’re shown on over two million websites
  • The Google Display Network reaches 90% of consumers online
  • Most effective for users between 25-44 years of age
  • Responsive ads are highly effective versus static image ads

They truly do cater for all kinds of businesses, from B2B companies to B2C local businesses, SMEs, e-commerce shops and multinationals.

On top of all this, targeting users who have previously visited your website via remarketing is a highly effective way to gently remind your potential customers about that product or service they were going to buy but didn’t.

What is Google Display?

Just one of the several different formats of Google ads, Google Display utilises visuals in its creative and can be shown across a wide range of different channels such as YouTube, websites, blogs, mobile apps and more.

In fact, this is one of its biggest strengths; the sheer reach the Google Display Network has. The number of websites and other locations is well past the two million mark, enabling Display advertisers to communicate their messaging to seemingly endless audience segmentations.

And due to their usage of visuals, brands are able to develop attention-grabbing creative that engages their intended audience ideally. This is especially useful for businesses that are keen to promote products or services in particular industries such as clothing and fashion, travel, food and other highly visual items. What’s more, often these businesses already have creative that’s been developed for other campaigns which makes it a relatively quick and easy process to repurpose this content for the Google Display Network.

Many people will often get Google search ads and display ads. Unlike the Google search network serving text-based ads specifically on Google search results, display ads are visual-based and can appear across a variety of platforms such as websites within the Google Display Network, YouTube, Gmail and more.

Also, Google search advertising will only show ads that correlate with particular keywords that a user searches for, while display ads use a range of different designated audience parameters to serve the ads to particular audience segments.

There are a number of differences between Google display ads and search ads, and which one you opt to use will depend on a myriad of factors.

For example, if you’re interested in targeting prospective customers that have made their way further into the marketing funnel, you’ll want to run a Google search advertising campaign. They’re effectively ready to buy, and you’ll target the relevant keywords that convert them directly from the search results.

And while Google display ads can also be useful to drive these conversions, because of their visual format they’re much more effective as a tool for generating awareness and recognition of your brand. As such, Google display ads are more suitable to be used to communicate with prospective customers who are just beginning their journey through your marketing funnel.

If you are operating a well-established brand, you should have consumers in both stages of your marketing funnel and as such would benefit from running simultaneous campaigns across both Google display and search.

However, if you’re not quite sure where to start, it’s important to determine the goals you wish to achieve from your Google ads campaign as well as your budget constraints and overarching objectives.

Still a bit confused? Speak with the team at First Page Digital – we’ll work with you to get the most out of your Google display and/or search campaign!

In this day and age, it’s impossible for any brand that wants to advertise effectively and boost their sales to bypass digital marketing. The issue, of course, is that with all of these brands battling against one another for online share of voice it can prove to be difficult to cut through the noise.

But by using the Google Display Network to run campaigns you can drill down your preferred audience segments and put your display ads right in front of them where and when you want. This means driving much more awareness and engagement for your brand because you’re choosing where your ads are being shown and even creating custom intent segments, effectively targeting exactly who you want wherever they are online.

Not only that, but also because of their visual creative potential, you can use responsive display ads that are highly captivating and attention grabbing to deliver rich media ads that are engaging and promote many more click-throughs. And by creating several different creatives, you can run them simultaneously and optimize your campaign to ensure you see the highest ROI.

All Google ads are served up on two major platforms, which are the Google Display Network (GDN) and the Google Search Network (GSN). As you can probably tell by the names, the search network is specific to serving text ads on search engine results pages while the GDN covers more than two million sites across the internet – that provides a reach of 90% of internet users. And those sites include mega-domains like YouTube and Gmail, too.

This means when you use the GDN you’re giving your display ads the very best chance to be seen by your desired audience. So whether it’s particular blogging sites, news sites or otherwise, the Google display network enables you to input various demographic and other audience parameters that will be used so your ad appears only to the users you want to see it.

Further to this, one of the best ways the Google Display Network works is that it provides a feature of topic targeting through custom affinity audiences, which effectively offers the ability to expand your reach to users with shared interests of your target market.

You’ll want to use what’s called responsive display ads if you want to really make a splash promoting your value proposition (over the static, uninteresting image ad format) when it’s time to create your display ad campaign – it’s simply a matter of allowing Google to automatically create your ads – whichever sizes you want displayed across the network.

One of the most advantageous things about running Google Display Network campaigns is your ability to precisely target specific audiences. This effectively minimises ad wastage and maximises your ROAS (return on ad spend). Like all other ad formats available from Google, you’re able to establish specific ad groups and segmentation using demographic categories and other parameters.

One option is in market audience targeting, which enables you to communicate with users who have interest in a particular topic (fitness, sports fans, technology, etc.). Another, known as placement targeting, provides insights through machine learning into which partner websites and web pages your target audience uses regularly and allows you to serve your ads there.

It is these audience based targeting methods which provide Google Display Network advertisers a substantial advantage over their competitors. Because at the end of the day, precise demographic targeting to ensure your ads are being seen by the right audience at the right time leads to improved prospecting and brand awareness.

Once you’ve built a solid strategy for your display campaign via steps like competitor analysis, Google Analytics and general research, it’s time to upload the display ad creative. And because Google is pretty amazing, it provides you with two different options to choose between.

The first is where you are completely responsible for designing and developing all of the ads yourself, and if you have the time and skills to do it, you may find this approach more accommodating of specific goals.

If you do decide to create your own Google ads, it’s important to build a few different sizes so your display potential is substantial across the network of sites. The following sizes are the most common, and we recommend designing and uploading at least these:

  • Medium Rectangle Ad (MREC) – 300 x 250 pixels
  • Leaderboard – 728 x 90 pixels
  • Large Banner Ads for mobile devices – 320 x 100 pixels
  • Half-page / Large Skyscraper Ad – 300 x 600 pixels

If, for whatever reason, you’d prefer to go the simpler route, these are known as responsive display ads. Doing it this way means providing Google with several different design elements like your business name, your logo, ad copy and imagery. It will use this to build out a range of different ad sizes for you, and due to its more dynamic formatting can be served across a lot more of the GDN websites.

If you’d like to bring display advertising into your digital marketing mix, there are a few steps necessary to take prior to uploading creative and setting your campaign live.

First and foremost, it’s vital that you have a clear understanding of the objectives of your display campaigns. This might be to build brand awareness, share your value proposition with the world, drive traffic to a high-conversion landing page or something else.

Once you have that in black and white, you’ll need to conduct the appropriate research. Utilise Google Analytics data to help work in market segments and target audiences. Browse other websites similar to yours to find out what they’re doing well (and what they aren’t).

If your goal is to promote click-throughs, you’ll then need to create the landing pages and website content required.

Finally, it’s time to jump into your account and choose your preferred display ad format. Here, you’ll also be given the option of determining which device(s) you want your Google display ad campaign to show up on. You’ll also be offered the option of the Google Smart Display Campaign, an automated platform for bidding on ad space and targeting. GDN ads via this method may be served to affinity audiences, in market audiences and more without you needing to do anything but initially selecting display network audience parameters.

You can, of course, choose to conduct all targeting and bidding manually if you know how to do it.

All highly successful Google display ad campaigns require a top quality bidding strategy, and there are several display advertising bid options available – each designed to accommodate a different overarching goal.

Once your display ad campaign is live, your job is still not done! Like all digital marketing, it’s vital to set up conversion tracking so you know how the campaign is tracking and can optimize accordingly.

Just like running ads on the Google search network, display advertising costs are entirely dependent on a myriad of different factors. These can include things like the industry your business operates within, your goals and which targeting options you choose such as in market segments and targeting audiences with custom intent (actively searching).

Because these days, using search engines like Google to advertise is about so much more than just keywords; now you’re able to drill down your audience using a long list of demographics and interests too.

So as you can imagine, the costs involved can vary greatly. However, it can most definitely be said that if conducted properly a Google display ad campaign on average will run at less than USD$1 cost-per-click.

When you advertise on the Google Display Network, you’re able to access what’s called impression reporting. This feature allows you to track users who visit your website after seeing your display ad – even if it doesn’t occur immediately.

As you can imagine, this makes it much easier to determine how influential your ads are on your audience.

It can tell you exactly how many of your ads were served to the user prior to conversion, and the multi channel funnels reporting tool on Google Analytics provides insights through highlighting the path to conversion across all the channels they saw your ads.

Just like the way local businesses can use Google Maps as a fantastic tool to reach their local audience, display ads – when executed correctly – are an immensely powerful way to reach highly targeted audiences.

The first essential step is to determine clear and concise goals you’re looking to achieve with the campaign.

Next, have a firm grasp on who you want to speak to.

Then, conduct a substantial amount of research and competitor analysis to help create your strategy.

Once you have a solid strategy, develop attention-grabbing creative (ideally 2 or more variants for A/B testing). This should include the name of your business, your unique value proposition, and most definitely a call-to-action of some kind. Use compelling copy that drives people to find out more.

Designing ads is not something to be taken lightly, either. Do it badly and you’ll see poor results, do it well and watch the leads roll in. If you don’t have experience creating ads, it’s absolutely imperative to speak with an agency that does – like First Page Digital!
