Whether you are searching for a user to take a certain action or want to improve the awareness levels of your brand, cab engine can help build an appropriate display strategy.

Ensuring display advertising is done right

Whilst many people out there believe Google Display Ads are only effective for larger, enterprise-level businesses, they are capable of fulfilling the objectives for those with smaller budgets also.

The Google Display Network is able to hit a high number of relevant prospects at different stages of the marketing funnel and customer journey. This also covers both websites and mobile apps.

Even when attempting to compete with large global businesses, all brands can benefit from having their brand known by possible future customers. Consumers don’t purchase from brands they can’t identify.

Display Advertising FAQS

What are the different levels of targeting?

When it comes to personalising display ads based upon the users and where they currently sit in the marketing funnel, there are four targeting options by which a business can optimise towards: Affinity targeting, Custom affinity targeting, custom intent and in-market.

What is the difference between display ads and native ads?

Native ads are specifically created with the placement front of mind. These ads blend into the content of a page. These ads can often appear to look like regular posts of that publication. Bearing in mind it is a legal requirement to display the term “sponsored”.

Whilst native ads are great for engagement, it is often found that the end product or conversion rate is lower due to the user not being over familiar with the ad and realising they didn't want to purchase or read more. This can also be seen as an additional con when brands hide their logo, paying for Impressions but ultimately failing to build upon brand recall.

Is HTML the optimum display advertising format?

Static banners have been around since the internet began, these formats are built using .jpg and .pngs. Since Google put a stop to Flash banners, HTML5 was born, therefore taking precedence over most banner formats gaining the highest forms of engagement.
