Are your Google Shopping Ads primed and ready to go? Yes, it might still seem like a way off, but if you’re a business owner in most sectors, by now, you’re hopefully already in the thick of preparations for the holiday season. If you’re running an e-commerce business, that means getting your inventory in order, sprucing up your website, and making sure your shipping process is running like a well-oiled machine. But there’s one other crucial piece of the puzzle: your advertising. You need to make sure your potential customers can actually find your site when they’re searching for holiday gifts. And that’s where PPC campaigns such as Google Shopping Ads come in.
Google Shopping Ads are a type of paid advertisement that appears in Google search results. They include a product image, price, and store name, and they’re designed to entice searchers to click through and make a purchase. In the run-up to Christmas, shoppers are searching for gifts more frequently than at any other time of year, which means this is the perfect time to give Google Shopping Ads a try.
How Google Shopping Ads Work
Google Shopping Ads work by pulling information—including product images, prices, and descriptions—directly from your website or product feed. You then bidding on keywords that you think potential customers will use when searching for products like yours. When someone searches for one of those keywords, your ad may appear in the search results. If the shopper clicks on your ad, they’ll be taken directly to the relevant product page on your site.
Why You Should Use Google Shopping Ads This Christmas
Google Shopping Ads are an incredibly effective way to reach holiday shoppers who are actively searching for gifts. They’re also very easy to set up; you can be up and running in just a few hours. And unlike other types of paid advertising, such as Facebook ads or Google display ads, you only pay when someone actually clicks on your ad. So if no one clicks on your ad, you won’t spend a dime.
Getting started with Google Shopping Ads starts with creating a Merchant Center account for your business, and uploading your product data. Then create a campaign in Google Ads and start bidding on relevant keywords.
