Many people hesitate using Google Ads because of the unknown and it can get expensive if not set up correctly. Last week, I did some research and found that the key is the campaign type you use. Many use the campaign type of “search”, which will eat you your budget quickly.
My new campaign for Now Lifestyle is using campaign type of “display”. Here is Google”s definition Display Network:
A group of more than 2 million websites, videos, and apps where your ads can appear.
Display Network sites reach over 90% of Internet users worldwide*. With the Display Network, you can use targeting to show your ads in particular contexts (like “outdoor lifestyles” or “cnn.com”), to particular audiences(like “young moms” or “people shopping for a new sedan”), in particular locations, and more. *Source: Comscore
