Do you recognize the banners on your favorite websites? They can be square, half page, billboard, static, rich media or plain text. Banners come in all shapes and sizes. This is what we call Display Advertising; advertising with banners or text ads on third party websites.
How does that work exactly? Many websites (publishers) have space available on their website that is used for advertising. Some publishers sell this ad space directly to companies. But you can also buy programmatic ad space through automated ad-exchange platforms, such as the Google Display Network. Websites and applications then offer their advertising space to the Google Display Network and this gives Google the opportunity to sell this advertising space to third parties. That’s why we also call it third-party websites, because the exchange platform is the middleman.
These platforms have a wide reach, because a huge amount of websites share their advertising space in this way. That is why Display is perfect for your branding. By serving many impressions, you can stay on top of mind and with specific targeting options you reach exactly your target group.
The targeting techniques can be broadly divided into two ways, namely targeting by interest or by context. With contextual targeting, you focus on the topic of the website where you want the ad to appear. That means that the content of the posting is of great importance.
When you target by interest, the user is important. This means that it doesn’t matter what content your website or application has, as long as your ad is targeted to the right user.
Both methods have their advantages, but it is important to know which of the two works best for your marketing purposes. In addition, it is important to realize that Display ads are basically suitable for branding and are less performance-oriented. We are happy to help you design your Display strategy!
