About Display Advertising-


You might have seen display ads with some texts and visuals on different websites or social media channels. These kinds of ads are usually used to attract viewers’ attention or simply to enhance brand awareness. To run such campaigns, you will have to pay for the ads based on the CPC model. It means that whenever somebody clicks on your ads, you will be charged a specific amount for that.

Besides that, you can also use display ad campaigns for retargeting audiences who have shown intent in your product but have not made a purchase yet. Even with such benefits, display ads are widely used at the awareness level of the funnel. And the reason behind that is that usually, people see such ads when they do not intend to buy them. On the other hand, if they are searching for such ads and find one, then there is a higher probability of conversion.

Still, as you can see, display ads only make you pay when you get clicks. And in comparison to search ad campaigns, they have lower price options as well. That is why investing in display ads is worth it.
