Audience Signals

If you are eager to reach your ideal audience, audience signals are one of the features you’ll want to implement immediately. Google announced audience signals in GML recently and is expected to be publicly available in Q3’21.

Like all of the features we’re reviewing, audience signals leverage automated targeting technology to accelerate learning. The feature uses indicators such as Life Events to flag and analyzes user behavior.

Google Ads Signals Explained:

Affinity Signals aggregates people with a strong interest in a given topic. This is great for creating awareness in your target market’s community.

Demographic Signals: You can target people based on advanced criteria like marital status, education, and age.

In-Market Audience Signals: There are users that Google has inferred are in the market to buy – these signals could be researching products and services you and your competitors offer.

Remarketing Lists: This is done from your own input, using a pixel – RLSA reach people who have engaged with your website or YouTube channel in the past.

Similar audiences: help you find new customers by building a model of your retargeted audience’s behaviors and characteristics and then applying them to potential new customers.

This layering of audience sentiments on top of keyword searching can enhance your ad strategy through variable bidding, where you can bid more or less on certain audiences than the keyword itself. Stay tuned for more on this feature. Subscribe to my channel. 

Performance Max Campaigns

Performance Max leverages automation to help advertisers to reach customers more accurately and drive more remarkable results. Automation technology is applied to bidding, targeting, creative ads, and attribution to achieve increased conversion and value.

Performance Max is a goal-based campaign type. It accesses all of Google Ads inventory from a single campaign. Google explains, “it is designed to complement your keyword-based Search campaigns to help you find more converting customers across all of Google’s channels–YouTube, Display, Search, Discover, Gmail, and Maps.”

Performance Max is an ideal campaign type that supports:

  • Specific advertising and conversion goals such as driving online sales, lead generation, among others
  • Maximizing the performance of your campaign when you are not limited by which channel your ads appear on
  • Accessing Google’s advertising channels through a single campaign
  • Achieving additional reach and conversion value beyond keyword-based search campaigns

As an advertiser, you will have the opportunity to tailor your ads in real-time to reach consumers across channels and devices.

Google Tip: Do not replace Search keyword campaigns with Performance Max campaigns as you may risk losing reach and performance, given Performance Max does not utilize keywords. Run Search and Performance Max alongside each other for best results.

Google explains some of the benefits offered by Performance Max campaigns:

  • Tapping into new audiences across the Google platform
  • Driving better performance related to the goals you assign
  • Acquiring transparent insights
  • Steering automation with your campaign inputs
  • Simplifying campaign management
  • Easily optimizing your ads

Customer Match

For example, customer Match is a Google advertising tool that helps you apply first-party data. First-party data is data that you collect directly from people who interact with your business. This information reveals behaviors, actions, and interests recorded by your website and apps.

Analyzing this data allows you to learn more about the users engaging with your business and opens the opportunity for you to address any needs that they may have.

Whereas this feature was once limited to certain advertisers, Google has now opened this up to all. However, specific requirements are still necessary for certain features.

Learn more about creating customer match lists.

Image Extensions in Search

Instagram/Snapchat/TicToc has taught us all that a holistic approach to ads goes a long way. Rich visuals paired with the right copy can make a world of difference when getting your audience to take action. In addition, image extensions are an automated feature that pulls visuals to complement search ads, further driving the message in your text ad and improving results.

The extensions do not interrupt the anatomy of the text ad. It continues to include headlines, descriptions, a visual URL, and a final URL. The image component is served at the bottom right of the ad and is clickable to the final URL.

Google shares, “Early results show advertisers see up to a 10% increase in CTR when image extensions or dynamic image extensions show with their mobile Search ads in absolute top positioning.

Do you need Social Media Content or Image/Graphic Design? Then, schedule a discovery call at Tridence.

YouTube includes NFTs and Web3 in new creator tools – Metaverse

NFTs and Web3 Updates Google LLC-owned video-sharing giant YouTube said Thursday it's considering web3 technologies such as nonfungible tokens and blockchain to help enhance the relationships between creators and their fans and develop new experiences. How Do NFTs and Web3 Work? "Web3 opens up new opportunities for creators," Neal Mohan, chief product officer at YouTube, said in a blog post. "We believe new technologies like blockchain and NFTs can allow creators to build deeper relationships with their fans. Together, they'll be able to collaborate on new projects and make money in ways not previously possible." An NFT is a type of blockchain asset that can represent a virtual item such as artwork, music, video, or even a ticket. What makes NFTs worthwhile is that they are unique and can be bought, sold, and traded. As a result, YouTube creators could use them to produce additional revenue streams related to their YouTube videos, turn their videos themselves into NFTs, and sell them to their fans to create deeper relationships. The company didn't clarify whether NFT ownership would conflict with copyright law. Buying an NFT establishes ownership of a specific digital asset and provides a public record of each transaction involving the asset. It doesn't transfer copyright from the original owner to the buyer. What can one expect? YouTube will add features that mirror competing platforms like NFTS and Web3. It will monetize Shorts, the short-form video platform similar to TikTok and Instagram Reels. For example, creators will reply to comments with short videos, a feature widely used on TikTok to engage with viewers directly. In addition, YouTube is adding live streaming features, further competing with Twitch. The company will launch collaborative live streaming so creators can go live together. The platform is also testing giving paid memberships as gifts. Let the Metaverse wars continue....

8006Frozen Theatre Chicago Review

Frozen Theatre Chicago Review

The glitz, the glamor, and the icicles are back! Disney’s “Frozen,” the Broadway hit musical, has returned to the Cadillac Palace Theatre for a limited ten-week engagement. Highly Recommend as we follow the lives of Elsa and Anna, who are heirs to the throne, with Elsa having a peculiar gift: the ability to create a frozen world of sparkling crystal. Many know how Disney’s Frozen took the box office by storm, and it’s clear sitting in the theater that audience members of all ages are excited to see the piece come to life. From kids, all dressed up and parents singing along. If you are a Disney fan, this musical was made for you. The Tony-nominated musical adaptation of the hit movie follows Elsa (Caroline Bowman) as she navigates, hiding her magical ice powers amid her coronation. When things go astray and her mystical magic is revealed, she runs off into the mountains to keep everyone safe – or so she thinks. With Arendelle suddenly under snow and the threat of permanent winter, her younger sister Anna (Marina Konodo) sets out to find Elsa to save their kingdom. This is where the story unfolds. Also in this musical are other favorite characters from the film: Kristoff (Mason Reeves), Olaf (F. Michael Haynie), Hans (Austin Colby), and of course, Sven (a combination of puppetry and acrobatic talents portrayed by Evan Strand and Colin Baja). This alone makes the magical experience full circle. Frozen is full of joy, and the eye-popping scenic design touches elicit uproars of laughter and applause. Standout performances and jaw-dropping special effects full of magic and flare make Disney’s Frozen a night to remember. Now, For the critical part, some songs needed a bit more clarity from the characters as a few of their pitches were off, but this is what makes live theatre awesome. Secondly, for all its glitz and girl power, l thought this magical show lacked some of the (human connect) warm connection found between Actors in other Disney musicals for the stage production. Overall, This is especially a top pick for those who first experienced this story as the original Disney film. Rating: 3.5 out of 4 Runtime: 2 hours and 15 minutes, with one intermission. Tickets range from $33 – $179, plus a select number of premium tickets are available. Buy Tickets: https://www.broadwayinchicago.com/show/disneys-frozen/ Tridence Supports the Arts....
