This new campaign type will take your existing focus and find more converting customers across all of Google’s channels like: YouTube, Display, Search, Discover, Gmail, and Maps.
Taking technology the next step Performance Max uses machine learning models to optimize bids and placements to drive conversions. We provide important inputs like audience signals (including your customer data), create ad copy , manage and organize your assets: high quality text, images, and video that can significantly improve your campaign performance.
Our experience so far suggests it really enhances the focus of ads on google maps and other mobile locations that would might normally slip thru if you just ran google ad words alone. While we have experienced lower click thru rates; the overall number of conversions captured over the entire google franchise is very impressive. Campaigns with existing legacy adwords campaigns seem to be more selective in the visits as it has more data, versus just running it stand alone. Engagements like store directions, phone calls, form submissions, bookmarks, and map visits have increased and after consulting with clients has equated to more foot traffic into their businesses.
