Display campaigns


Display campaigns are those in which the banner ads are shown on those web pages that belong to Google’s inventory. Currently, more than 3,000,000 websites are included, so the reach of this type of campaign is really huge.

The key to this campaign is in its segmentation. Poor segmentation can cause you to allocate resources to the wrong audience or not reach the right users for your product.

Additional to the segmentation options offered in search campaigns (location, language, audience), display campaigns allow very relevant and specific segmentation alternatives. You can decide the demographic profile of your target audience, like gender, age or parental status. It can also be segmented by keywords, so that your ads are displayed on websites related to your product.

Another interesting option with the display campaign is being able to select your related niche.

You can even choose which specific websites you want your ads to appear on.

Shopping campaigns


Shopping campaigns are the best for advertising products from an e-commerce website.

Like the search campaigns in that the ad is triggered from a Google search from the user. However, Shopping campaigns do not show a text ad, but a product page. In this ad, the user can quickly and easily see relevant information about the product he was looking for, such as its image, price, description, sizes…

Those people who were interested in a specific product can click on the ad to be directed to the advertised website to complete the purchase process.

Video Campaigns


Video campaigns, as the name suggests, allow you to display advertising in video format on YouTube and other websites. Meaning, these campaigns will show your ads in search results or YouTube videos, as well as in video partners of the Google Display Network.

In this case, as was also the case with Display campaigns, segmentation plays a fundamental role in reaching the right audience.

The targeting options are actually very similar to what we’ve seen for display campaigns. You can segment by location, language, demographic group, custom audiences…
