Since we’re now in the domain of market research, I wanted to show off about the size of the Panel that we’re using for our study.We took all the people who saw one of our ads during 1 week – they numbered 147M unique browsers. Then we looked at the shopping and clicking behaviour of these same browsers over the course of Q1 2012. We examined a set of “Myths” taken from the Comsore papers, and confronted them to the results from our panel.
Wrong, again. In our panel, clickersbuy 3x more frequentlythan non-clickers.
The conclusion I draw from this is that if you show someone the right Ad, then they might click on it, and if they do, it’s because they want to engage with your products or services. Put that way it is really quite obvious.The right ad means showing an ad to the: Right User: one who has expressed an interest in your products, or might be susceptible to them (that’s targeting).It means the right message - a offer that might interest him (that’s Dynamic Creative)…. And it means the right place – the Ad has to be in a visible position on a high quality publisherIf you get all this right, then your ad should have a CTR of at least 0.5%, and the clicks that you get will be valuable expressions of purchase intent.Buyers click on on good ads
