Retargeting visitors of your website typically takes pixels, and those snippets of code ad up! Additionally, they can be a hassle to set up in your website’s code. Enter Google Tag Manager! Google Tag Manager is a ‘container’ that you place once on your website, that serves as a central spot to place all of your website pixels. One big advantage of Google Tag Manager is that the need to edit website code for each pixel is eliminated. Instead, code is edited once to place the container code, and that’s it!
Wide entry, narrow exit! A proper digital marketing campaign introduces many people to your brand, message, and call-to-action, for a low price. At this top part of the funnel, Google Ads has various affordable campaign types that are excellent at generating top-of-funnel interest, including display, video and search ads. Make sure you’re tracking behavior on the ad, so you can retarget those who are engaged further down in the funnel.
Create retargeting ads via display and YouTube. Google has a great display network and is a one-stop shop for running various retargeting ad types in a single platform. Setting up a retargeting campaign for your audience will ensure they stay engaged in your brand.
Make sure you fill out all of your Google Ads extensions. Extensions are key components of ads on the Google Ads platform, and serve to provide additional insights into your website information. The bottom line can’t be argued with; extensions increase click through rate by 10-15%.
Don’t forget Google My Business! Setting up Google My Business is integral in potential customers finding your company in search results. It’s free to create a profile, and you can personalize your profile with pertinent company information as well as photos, links and other post content. Google My Business is also a great way to garner reviews!
