Use callout extensions

Make ads engaging

Engagement ads are becoming common with advertisers in the Google Display Network. These ads let you click a box to create a more engaging experience, making the ad shoppable in a PLA format. Another big advantage to using engagement ads is that they are cross-platform and can be displayed on mobile, tablet and desktop devices.

Track specific ad performances

Before adding a new layer to your ad, it’s advantageous to track the performance of individual tactics. It helps you understand which components of your campaign are working well.

Use extensive A/B testing

The more A/B testing you do in general, the more you will learn about your advertising possibilities. Make sure you do plenty of ad testing before launching a large-scale campaign that requires a significant budget.

Analyze your data with an open mind

Too many people jump to conclusions about data since it’s so easy to do when reviewing a wide array of Analytics. Consider that specific strategies may not work right away until a certain amount of tweaking is done.
