Google Ads

Growing Your Brand through Google Ads and Digital Solutions

Google Ads is an online advertising platform developed by Google that allows advertisers to pay for advertising space over the Google Ads network.

It allows your potential customers to be put into contact with your brand when actively searching for your products.

One of the key advantages to Google Ads is that your budget is only expended when an audience member clicks and ad to visit your site or promotional landing page.

How Google Ads Works

Google Ads works by allowing advertisers to bid on certain keywords in order to have their clickable ads appear at the top of Google’s search results page.

To do this, advertisers identify the keywords they want to bid for on Google Ads and determine how much they want to pay. These keywords are then paired with ads which are displayed with relevant search queries.


Benefits of Google Ads for Your Campaign

  • Achieve results in less time than through SEO;
  • Obtain measurable results and insights into consumer opinion of your brand;
  • Create and target ad campaigns based on user demographics.


Google Ads Success Stories

Google Ads and Search Marketing holds a number of benefits for businesses and industries of all shapes and sizes.

The following case studies represent brands of varying scales to demonstrate this. Please note, that for the protection of our own clients, we have elected to share insights from brands that have published their success stories to the public, and have not used details relating to our own clients’ campaigns.


Brand Building: Intel

Intel represents a massive, globally recognised brand; but they didn’t get there by chance. It was only through decades of consistent work that their brand grew into the giant that it is today.

Over the past few years, Intel has made search a key part of their marketing strategy in creating insights for consumers, businesses and IT professionals, and growing brand awareness over various media channels.

In addition, this also allowed Intel to predict consumer behaviour with measurable insights generated from their Google Search campaign, that could be used to further refine their strategy.

For further details, an in-depth case study on Intel’s Search marketing campaign can be found here.
