Partner Perspectives: Evaluating Digital Experiences at Scale

If you’re invested in digital marketing, then you’re invested in multi-channel marketing and consistency of brand presence.  Digital marketing channels like paid search, SEO, programmatic and social media advertising cannot succeed in a vacuum.  Individually, these tactics can drive traffic to your site, but without a seamless digital experience and strategy reinforcing a core value message, you’re flushing money down the toilet.  It doesn’t matter if your business is a travel booking engine, car dealership, insurance company with affiliate agencies or a multi-store brand.

Mike Ruins Bidding on Products in Shopping Campaigns

What’s the one thing you would change about Shopping campaigns if you could?

Did you immediately think “to be able to use keywords like regular Search campaigns?” If so, you’re not alone.

When Google rolled out their new Shopping campaigns back in 2013, they told all of us to “create product groups for the items you want to bid on.”  The frustration with this was that it took away control of the queries our ads would show on; similar to using pure broad match keywords in Search.  Our only hope was to repeatedly add negative keywords to try and cut out any queries the Google brain was matching to our products.  Even then, you may have a good idea of which products were showing on which queries, but you didn’t know exactly.
