Shopping ads are ads that have rich product information on them such as the product image, price, website URL and the merchant name. Quite often, shopping ads are referred to as the Google shopping ads program that enables you to submit a product feed to Google after you create a merchant account and start advertising on Google search network and display network. They appear when a search query matches the product name, title or description. They are quite an effective form of advertising as they display the product’s price making it easier for the user to decide if they want to purchase the product without clicking the ad. If you are not using Google Shopping ads you are missing out on a vast pull of potential clients as it is something really easy to set up which will increase sales for your eCommerce business.

What is retargeting? Retargeting campaigns are reminding your existing customers of products that they have already viewed on your website and they have left without buying them. Retargeting is a simple form of advertising that engages users presenting them relevant visuals to the products they have viewed in the past. This kind of advertising has a really high conversion rate and a low of cost per click as these are users already engaged with your business. How many times have you found yourself buying something that you have seen before from a display ad, sometimes with a discount or offer? If you are not using retargeting ads you should start considering using them for your eCommerce business.
