By using display advertising in conjunction with search, advertisers are likely to see a lift in conversions. Many consumers convert on a site where they are familiar with the name of the company.
In addition, if a consumer sees a display ad, they are apt to go to a search engine and research the company; this leads to a higher lift in searches. Since the visitor is already familiar with the company, they are most likely doing a branded search, which tends to be much more qualified traffic. Consumers interested in your products may just want to find out a little bit more.
For example, a person might see a display ad for a new hybrid car. If the person wants know more, they may go to a search engine and look for that specific car to learn more.
Participating in simple search advertising has some limitations because the ads that appear are restricted to just what people are searching for. People on the internet don’t know what they don’t know; so display advertising in conjunction with search engine marketing is a great way to get your name, products and services out across the internet. Running search ads can also lend to the credibility of a company if visitors see a display ad and do a search for it.
Using both display and search engine marketing can help people find businesses, products and services when they may not be searching online and lead to an increase in branded searches as well as an increase in conversions.
