  • Yes, we are talking about preparing for the Holidays in the middle of July. It’s a lot to prepare for, but our opinion is that all of these tactics should have a place in your strategy year round. There’s money to be made all year round and preparing now for the holidays can also have an impact on improving your results at all times of the year.
  • If you are profitable at ecommerce with PPC it almost goes without saying that you are utilizing Product Listing Ads as a major part of your strategy.Trends seem to be developing. Pure Ecommerce vendors seem to be favoring Product Listing Ads more. Brick and Mortar retailers seem to be doing both Text Ads that can also drive store visits to purchase or the online order (not a pure ecommerce play) and increasingly also doing PLAs.If you are willing to go “all out” you can do both at the same time and can potentially own more page space for the holidays (word of warning: added exposure doesn’t necessarily mean added profit.)
  • Adoption of PLAs has really spiked in recent months. A brand new study by AdGooroo estimates more than 4 billion PLAs were displayed on U.S. AdWords from March to May 2013, or 5.9% of the total number of AdWords PPC ad impressions.
  • Some seller categories have adopted PLAs more than others. Mass retailers like Walmart & Target, Auction sites like Ebay and consumer electronics sellers have embraced the format. Surprisingly Health and Pharmacy sellers have a very high adoption rate as well. Apparel, Jewelry and smaller ticket consumer products have not achieved a significant share of impressions yet with PLAs and this is likely because searches that trigger their PLAs are more categorical queries like “diamond earrings” rather than the product specific queries like “LG TV 55LS4500”. Advertising on categories almost always has a lower ROI than product specific queries no matter what the PPC advertising tactic.
  • Why are pure ecommerce vendors favoring PLAs so much?Better CTRLower CPCBetter ROI. PLAs are a no brainer for Ecommerce profitability.
  • Just because you are utilizing PLAs doesn’t necessarily mean that you are using them optimally.Work on fixing your errors in your Merchant Feed now. It can be a very time consuming process to trouble shoot feed errors, but the reality is that Google will not show your PLAs if they have errors.Work on processes that allow you to update your merchant feed at shorter intervals. This will allow you to add new products faster and more importantly will allow you to pause PLAs on products that are out of stock. There’s nothing worse in ecommerce than spending money on items that are.You can use Google’s API to do this also if you have some programing knowledge.
  • Most ecommerce remarketing is pretty short term because the sales cycle after the initial search is often pretty short.But you can also do some longer term remarketing tactics for your big holiday marketing campaigns.
  • The sales cycle on bigger ticket items is slower. The traffic on those bigger ticket items can also tend to be lower. Start collecting remarketing audiences on these products now. Then unleash your banner ads, preferrably with discounts just in time for the holiday gift giving season.
  • If you know in advance what your holiday circular products are going to be and you have a few months to build remarketing lists on the people that view these products and don’t purchase them over a longer duration of time.Store locator searches should be considered a good measure of success, especially during the holidays.
  • If you have “Incentive” pages detailing special offers or providing coupons its in your interest to develop that audience as a remarketing list for all of your sales events (not just the holiday ones). This audience is composed of your brand loyalists and they are buyers. Start making it a practice of hitting these people with sales ads online every time. The more you can mix it up with new offers the better.
  • Frequently there’s a lot of pressure to get maximum ad visibility during key holiday shopping periods (regardless of those tactics being profitable or not).The proper way to increase bids isn’t to change all of the bid settings you have worked months and months to set at levels that achieve profitability. How will you return them to the previous levels after the holidays?
  • Google search partners include Amazon, Ebay and Walmart. Ads on these search partner pages are typically very low on the page, but search network clicks on ecommerce products tend to be very profitable (especially on big ticket items).
