Let's talk about
Google Search Ads (SEA)
Are you struggling to get your business noticed? Search Ads (SEA) might be just what you need! SEA refers to text-based advertisements that appear at the top of search engine results pages like Google and Bing. With New Story, you can set up these ads for specific keywords related to your product or service. That means when someone searches for those keywords, your ad pops up. It's a great way to attract potential customers who are actively looking for what you offer.
Short and long term SEA strategies
New Story offers two types of SEA campaigns: short-term and long-term. Short-term campaigns run ads for a set period of time and then pause when the campaign ends. This is perfect for companies looking to test the waters before committing to a long-term advertising strategy. Long-term campaigns, on the other hand, run for an extended period of time, allowing you to gather predictive insight and utilize paid advertisements because you know they work.
Two kinds of SEA
Aside from Search Ads, you also have Shopping Ads. These ads feature specific product images and are typically used by e-commerce websites and webshops. You'll find them displayed prominently at the top of search results.
SEA is not SEO
It's important to note that SEA and SEO are two very different things. While SEA focuses on quick results via paid advertisements, SEO requires a longer lead time and focuses on optimizing your website and content to rank higher in search results organically - without paying for it directly.
Start with keyword research
To get started with SEA, you should always begin with keyword research. By understanding which keywords your target audience uses to find your products or services, you can ensure your ads are visible to the right people. After keyword research, it's essential to determine Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) together, providing clarity on what needs to be achieved and where the campaign focus should lie. At New Story, we manage and optimize campaigns by analyzing keyword performance, cost per click, and improving ad texts. These insights enable us to make immediate adjustments and ensure campaigns continue to perform.
How New Story maximizes impact
To get the most out of your SEA investment, you need more than just knowledge of the advertising platform. You need a comprehensive strategy that aligns with your business objectives and target group. Effective keywords that respond to customer searches, attractive ad texts that match your brand identity, clear call-to-actions that set your target group in motion, and efficient landing pages that drive your target group further in the sales funnel. At New Story, we have a cross-functional team that delivers these components to help maximize your SEA impact.
