Benefits of Google’s Audience on search campaigns

Benefits of Google’s Audience on search campaigns

Tools available on Google’s Audience help you to reach valuable customers for your search campaign. This solution allows you to create lists of audiences based on a variety of different signals, use them into your ad groups and customize your bids, creatives and keywords to deliver a tailor-made campaign for each group.

Why Google’s Audience?

There are three advantages you have in your search campaign when using audiences:

  • Adjustable bidding: make sure you’re making the right bids when certain groups of people are searching for you. If you bid higher for specific audiences, you’ll potentially have your ad shown in a better position when people search for you. Or if specific audiences might not have as strong a performance as others do, so you can reduce your bids when those audiences search for you.
  • Keyword expansion: expand your keyword set to more broad terms and more general terms. Engage the mid- and upper-funnel for greater reach. Create ad groups that target generic keywords and show ads only to specific audiences because bidding for generic keywords can be costly.
  • Creative customization: reaching your audience with the right message will improve the user experience and lead to a higher CTR for the search campaign. Build ad groups to specific audience lists and create bespoke text ads for those groups of people.
