Google Ads Updates
More In-Market Audiences
If you are familiar with Google Ads, it is more likely than not that you know about or have a basic understanding of in-market audiences. An in-market audience allows marketers to tap into consumers who are researching or comparing products across Google’s display network. This is done using ‘cookies’ on the Display network and the ‘Audience’ is determined based on what the users need to have clicked on related ads in the past in addition to the what types of pages they view.
Googles recent update expanded the amount of In-market Audiences you will be able to select for your campaigns. The number of new in-market audiences is 30 to be exact. This will allow marketers to better pinpoint those interested in their products and promote them accordingly.
Local Inventory Ads
If you have ever searched a product on Google, you have most certainly seen a local inventory ad. These appear just below your Google Search bar and show the products, its price, and even where the product is located relative to your location. Marketers will now be able to promote special deals within the ads unlike before. Users seeing a product just miles from their location in addition to a promotional deal may be what drives them to your store over a competitor.
