Maximizing efficiency in your ecommerce paid campaign
To build a positive brand image online and increase your revenue from online sources, you need to refine your online strategy.
Below is a list that will help you to get the best results. Although we’ll be focusing on Google ads, many of these strategies can be applied to any paid advertising platform.
Optimize product data feed
Your campaign performance is determined by the data in your Google Product Feed. This has serious implications for your ROI. Optimization is therefore crucial.
Your title should be simple enough that anyone can read it and understand all you have to say about your product. These titles will also make you more visible on search engines such as Google.
If you’re not using the Google Product Feed and prefer to use a spreadsheet instead, ensure that you include as much information as possible about the product, including color, size, material and the age range of potential buyers.
Choose the best product categories and subcategories, and align them with appropriate product types. This can severely impact your sales.
You can track your performance with a quality Product Feed Management tool. This will allow you to make adjustments to your ads based on your performance.
Use negative keywords to fine-tune your campaign
- The Google Shopping system is no exception. Google Shopping listings can be a huge boon for marketers. However, search results may sometimes show your products with incorrect keywords. If you are selling running shoes but not accessories, your ads shouldn’t be displayed to shoppers who won’t buy.
You should not be showing up for keywords that don’t bring in buys. Your ad campaigns may experience high spend but low conversion rates, low click-through rate, low ROIs, and ROAS.
Negative keywords can be used to prevent your ads from appearing when certain search terms are searched. This can increase the campaign’s ROAS and ROI.
Avoiding unwanted clicks with negative keywords in your ads can help you save money and increase your click rate.
Highlight sales, discounts and special offers
Customers love great deals because they can save money while buying something.
Promoting discounts and other special offers can help you move products quickly. You must mention special offers or deals when you run them. If you want to be noticed in your field, you should also post ads about these deals and offers.
Use single product ad groups
Single Product Ad Groups (SPAGs), allow marketers to place bids for each product individually. SPAGs allow you to pause products that aren’t delivering the desired results. SPAGs allow you to add negative keywords to specific products.
An SPAG helps you identify your most-sellers and least-sellers, and allows you to organize them into performing or non-performing categories.
An SPAG can be a very handy tool. It allows you to modify the product, create keywords and manage the market bids.
Google Showcase Ads
- Google Showcase Ads display product images and prices right on the search results page. When clicked, these ads expand and display a customized description of the product as well as a list of related products. These ads let you group related products together and present them together to promote your business or brand.
Google Showcase ads can help you increase sales and efficiency in your paid campaigns. They allow you to highlight products with high-quality digital photos. They will appear at the top of your SERP (search engine result page), above paid search ads.
Provide a great post-purchase experience
With the fierce competition online from brands and other competitors, it is important to encourage repeat sales. They are often less expensive than first-time customers.
Strong customer loyalty will be built by providing a positive check-out experience, and after-purchase considerations. This will increase the likelihood of customers making second and subsequent purchases.
Once customer data is acquired, it’s important to use it wisely. This will increase your customer retention rate. This will allow you to group customers according to how much they have bought and how often they have bought. Your loyal customers can receive exclusive discounts and offers accordingly.
Some important points to keep in mind when creating an ecommerce website
These are some key points to remember when creating an ecommerce site.
- Mobile-friendly websites are a must. In fact, the majority of online searches are done on mobile devices. Mobile-friendly design ensures customers can navigate your website on their mobile devices easily.
- Different users prefer different payment methods. It is vital to provide multiple payment options. Customers may not be able to pay the way they prefer on your website if they do not find their preferred payment method. You could, for example, offer PayPal or Google Pay as payment options.
- Make the sales process easy. Customers who aren’t computer- or mobile-savvy should still be able complete their purchases without any difficulty. Your customers will enjoy a seamless and simple experience when purchasing.
Every brand should take the time to make sure they are memorable and connect with their customers. You can engage your audience in new ways that will increase data capture and brand loyalty.
These strategies can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your advertising campaigns. Using them correctly will reap the rewards in the long-term.
