Google Display has a weird anomaly where the nicest looking ads don’t necessarily lead to the greatest number of impressions and clicks. It all comes down to which ad slot sizes Google needs to fill, and which ads it has available to fill them. Because fixed-size display ads tend to be made for the most popular sizes only (but there are 20 different sized ad slots), Google has been pushing their Responsive Display advertising system as the best way to get impressions.

And yes, it really works, you will get loads more impressions and clicks if you use Responsive Display, and the CPCs are much cheaper as well. That said, you won’t necessarily get as high a click through rate or a conversion rate from them, because frankly, they can be a little ugly.

You’ll get more impressions if you target more broadly and increase how much you’re willing to pay for a click from Google Display Network, but only to a limit. If you increase your bids and you run out of budget part-way through the day Google will stop showing your ads and then you’ll actually get fewer impressions AND pay more per click.

Personally I don’t think that a Display impression counts for too much though unless it’s to a remarketing audience, or its for a restaurant or event where people can just turn up without having to click through to your website.

The reason I mention remarketing audiences here is because these are users who already know your business, and so nurturing the relationship by keeping ads in front of them is fine, even if they don’t click on them straight away because they can come back and buy when they’re ready. Someone who doesn’t already know your business on the other hand is almost never going to convert based on an impression, its important to get them to click through to your website so that they can be added to your remarketing lists, email subscription etc.

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.

Petra was instrumental in pulling all our clinic's web analytics into one easy to read, dynamic report that's accessible to me at any time, and works with our EXACT booking system.

This has allowed me to see, at a glance, what marketing initiatives are working, need tweaking, or changing altogether, saving me both time and money. I can't recommend her or her analytic services enough.
