Google Performance Max is the latest Google Ads offering by the search giant. Since its rollout in the second half of 2021, the automated advertising campaign has been taken through the wringer by experts. While it is based on machine learning and is automated, there are ways for you to further optimise the Performance Max advertising campaigns.
In this blog post, we will explore a few tactics for optimising Performance Max campaigns for different types of businesses and how hiring an expert can help you get the most out of your Performance Max campaigns.
Performance Max is the new automated advertising option introduced by Google in the latter half of 2021. It makes use of machine learning and allows advertisers to show their ads across all the Google properties including Google search, Google Maps, YouTube, Gmail, Google Discover and others. Google has said that it has the potential to bring down the cost per lead and increase the number of conversions.
In short, Google is claiming that this new campaign format offers more bang for your buck if you are an advertiser.
Google has provided certain guidelines to get the most out of your Performance Max campaigns. Like any ad campaign, it is important to clearly define your goals and continuously refine them to get the best results. Here are a few tips on the best way to optimise your Performance Max campaigns for various business types:
The Performance Max campaigns make use of machine learning algorithms to automatically adjust various settings to get the best performance for your budget. Having said that, results are somewhat limited in the real world. The algorithms are able to generate great results within the set parameters but automated optimisation only works up to a certain level.
For example, the Performance Max campaigns for lead generation typically generate a lot of leads but you can’t say much about the quality of leads. If the leads are of lower quality, you are unlikely to get the desired results. A higher number of leads with a poor conversion rate will ultimately cost you more money.
This is why you need experts who have experience with Performance Max campaigns. They can help you optimise your campaigns to get the best possible return on your investment.
The algorithms can optimise ad campaigns up to a certain extent. An expert knows how to make the best use of available data to enhance the quality of leads and to get the maximum possible number of leads or sales within a fixed budget.
Overall, Google’s Performance Max campaigns are here to stay. They are known to drive up more conversions and eventually, you should be able to get more out of your ad budget. Since Performance Max campaigns allow you to place your ads across all the platforms including local campaigns, Discover, Gmail, Smart Shopping, search, YouTube and others, it is better to get started now and get a hang of the system.
