Yes, you can track conversions in Display ads exactly as you would for Search or Shopping ads. This may include transacting, reaching a thankyou page, or triggering a tracked goal in Google Analytics.

A word of caution though!

Display rarely gets the same conversion rate as Search or Shopping ads because you’re targeting users much earlier in their buying cycle. The purpose of Display ads is to attract very niche and attractive buying audiences into the top of your sales funnel so that they can filter through your customer journey over time. If you try to measure these users against immediate transactions and signups you might be disappointed with Display advertising as your conversions will seem really low.

Instead, you should create “Conversion Action Sets” for Display that are different from Search and Shopping campaigns. You can apply your Conversion Set to all your Display campaigns so that you can compare them against each other, but include a larger range of early conversions so that you can see which targeting settings, landing pages, ad assets etc are actually effective. A quick and easy Conversion Set I recommend is just to add “Add to Cart” as a Display conversion for Ecommerce businesses, and “Spent Longer than 1 Minute on the Website” as a Display conversion for other businesses. If you can navigate the tech, it is also great to also add social sharing from your website as an early conversion. With a higher conversion rate across your display campaigns, you’ll then be able to see which Display ads and options are working and which are not.

Pro Tip – make sure you add revenue into Google Ads for conversions that actually lead to revenue such as transactions, and an average revenue for leads. This way even if you add additional conversions for Display ads, you can still compare ads and targeting by conversion value as well as earlier stage conversions.

Your attention to detail is beyond what I had expected. The detail of the data is incredible. The best part though was to learn the profile demographic - which is very different to whom I think I've been trying to target through social.

Petra's detailed reports and her personal assistance has been helping us to know where to concentrate our efforts and even showed us technical issues we needed to fix. Our Audience Engagement Report identified several key interests of our buying audience. We tried targeting one of those interests and it brought in two sales almost immediately! I highly recommend working with Petra and accessing her brilliance to scale your business.

I have been working with Petra for over a year now after changing from a much larger digital marketing provider and I could not be more pleased with the service and results my business is achieving.

With my previous providers I felt disconnected with limited communication. Petra on the other hand provides me with knowledge and information in a language I can understand that helps me make informed decisions not just about digital marketing but also my e-commerce business as a whole.

Petra has helped me navigate seasonal drops in trade creating a strategy that helped us grow and establish a healthy position in the market. It is an absolute joy to work with someone who loves what they do. I have complete confidence in recommending Petra to anyone considering e-commerce digital marketing, she is efficient, trusted and a true professional.

I recently worked with Petra to improve my understanding of Google Tag Manager.

Petra not only provided a solid overview of GTM set up and event tracking, she also provided many tips on best practice, and answered the questions that I didn't even know to ask!

Petra is patient, fun to work with, and her analytical programming mind is hell bent on finding the BEST solution to any data, analytics or tracking problem.
