When people think about Google Ads, the first thing that comes to mind is search ads. But if people don’t know about your brand name, products or services, they aren’t going to search for you on Google. You’ll need to invest in building that awareness. This is where the Google Display Network can help out.
If you are a start-up company looking to break into Google Ads for the first time and quickly earn the attention you need to grow your brand awareness, there’s no better way to start than by launching ads on Google Display Network — and there are many benefits of doing so.
What is Google Display Network?
Google Display Network (GDN) is a collection of websites that reach over 90% of Internet users across the globe. The display network includes Gmail and YouTube, as well as a network of millions of partner sites and mobile apps where your Google Ads can appear.
Display Ads allows you to appear right in front of the consumers without waiting for them to find you. You can display your ad on the articles, videos, or websites that consumers browse with visual and rich media ads, unlike Search Ads that’s just allowed plain text.
Now you have a better understanding of what is display network, let’s look into the various benefits of using the display network.
Why You Should Advertise on Display Network?
1. Huge Network for Building Awareness
The most obvious benefit of the GDN is its reach. The network is comprised of over 2 million blogs, news pages, and other sites. Since the Google Display Network is so massive, it offers many opportunities to connect with your target audience.
Your ads are shown when users are viewing a Youtube video, playing a game on their phone or even when they check their email, without waiting for them to find you. This is something that can’t be done with Google Search Ads, as well as paid social ads. It’s a clear benefit for businesses who want to increase their exposure and reach more people online.
