We Help Businesses Develop Effective Google Performance Max Campaigns

Google Performance Max campaigns are the latest advertising tool from Google, and Performance Max is the primary campaign type Google wants you to be using to advertise everywhere on the Google platform all at once:

    • Search
    • YouTube
    • Display
    • Discover
    • Gmail

Google has made it very clear through its communication with advertisers and agencies that Performance Max is the future of advertising on Google.  So it’s important to know what Google Performance Max campaigns are, and how they can drive more efficient performance as part of your overall marketing mix.

What’s Different About This Campaign Type

In the past, you’ve had to have separate campaigns for search, display, and video.  So the Performance Max campaign COMBINES all of these into a single campaign and budget. For each product or service you provide (or want to advertise), we create an asset group that includes:

    • Photos
    • Videos
    • Headlines
    • Descriptions
    • Logos
    • Action Button

Then Google uses these assets to build ads on the fly based and show them across the entire Google platform (search, display, YouTube, Waze, Maps, Discover, etc.) whenever it feels it can generate your desired conversion action. Conversion actions are typically a phone call, form fill at your website, engaging a chatbot, texting, e-mailing, etc. At Google Marketing Live, Google estimated that Performance Max is generating an average of 14% greater results than other combinations of campaigns on the Google Ads platform.

The Three Major Improvements Performance Max Represents

Google Will Reward You.  It’s often that simple; when you do what Google asks, they tend to reward you for listening.  We’ve seen it time and again.  When Google knows you and has great confidence in the information it has, it will show the hell out of you.

Budgets Combine for Less Waste.  It’s tough to allocate your total budget across multiple campaigns and campaign types in Google Ads.  The great news about Performance Max is it allows you to set a single budget and give Google the flexibility to spend it where it can do the most good and drive marketing ROI. It Works Across the Entire Google Platform.  Let’s say you’ve got all your eggs in the search basket.  Often, even the best SEM campaigns can’t reach 100% of the search audience.  In fact, it’s estimated that searchers only click the ads as little as 10% of the time! The Google Performance Max campaign type begins to solve this problem.  After that same person has searched and Google knows he, she, or they are in-market to purchase, Google can now continue to target your ads to that user until the desired outcome happens. Many business categories also tend to be very SEM-heavy.  Meaning that advertisers tend to just bid against each other for leads.  This breaks you out of that cycle, at least partially.  You start playing a different game than your competitors, and that can be a strong advantage. Now you can talk to prospective customers who have demonstrated an interest in what you do as they move across all aspects of the Google platform.  Since most purchase decisions are rarely made “on the spot,” being able to stay in marketing communication far beyond that initial search gives you a great advantage.
