What Is Digital Display Advertising?
Digital display advertising
Display advertising is the strategic process of creating visually engaging ads that will be shown on the Google Display Network: a global marketing infrastructure, consisting of over two million websites and more than 600K apps. It’s a huge opportunity to extend your brand reach and supply targeted ads to potential customers.
This is an opt-in network consisting of sites that offer advertising space to brands, helping business owners reach their prospective customers whilst they browse millions of websites, applications, and Google-owned properties like YouTube. It takes a lot of time, effort, and commitment to optimise digital display advertising to ensure the maximum return. Due to the fact your display ads will be appearing on a user’s browser whilst they’re navigating a different journey, it’s vital that your ads are powerful and relevant enough to pique their interest, enticing them to take a different path and visit your website. At a minimum, your ads should be enough to plant a seed in the user’s mind, making them more likely to visit your site at a later point. Soap Media has decades of experience creating and managing display campaigns across a multitude of industries, making us well-positioned to construct captivating banners that attract and excite your target audience.
Our display ad experts will use multiple different targeting criteria, referred to as layering, allowing them to hone in on your exact audience with precision.
Find new customers through prospecting
In digital display advertising, prospecting refers to using ads to target consumers based on their interests and previous web activity. Targeting options that fall under the category of prospecting include:
Remarketing your way to success
Developing on display
Unlike prospecting, remarketing refers to the process of showing display ads to users who have previously viewed or interacted with your website in order to encourage them to re-enter the sales funnel.
Alongside scaling your brand visibility with prospecting activity, we also want to engage users who have interacted with your brand previously – after all these are warmer leads. We retarget users who have engaged with your ads or viewed and interacted with your website to ensure they don’t bleed out of the sales funnel. This is significantly more beneficial than performing prospecting alone, as it creates a catchment touchpoint. For example, a user who has visited your website may have added something to their cart or interacted with a specific product or service, but then changed their mind and bounced instead of going through with the purchase. Remarketing essentially gives you a second bite of the cherry, allowing you to show advertisements of your products and services to these people, enticing them to revisit your website and convert. Additionally, from a business-to-business perspective where there are multiple decision-makers involved in the sales process, remarketing also ensures your brand stays at the forefront of their minds. This is extremely important because it encourages brand recall when the decision stage is pending. Our expert team can do this using a variety of methods, including video remarketing, RLSA (Remarketing Lists for Search Ads), and dynamic retargeting.
