Ad Groups with Banner Display / 3rd Party Display - Campaign Manager


Getting Started

An ad group is a single set of ads with an associated bid and audience within a campaign. Each of your campaigns comprises one or more ad groups that can be managed individually. This allows you to adjust a single variable, such as bids, budget, creative, and more, within one ad group without affecting other ad groups' success within your campaign. 

If you have multiple ad groups, you will see them as components of your overall campaign in Choozle in the Campaigns Tool. 

Using Banner Display / 3rd Party Display

Display ads, also known as banner display, are a creative format that can be used in digital advertising. Banner Display is the most common creative format and comes in various sizes (Creative Specs). 

These creative formats appear on various types of websites within the programmatic advertising environment, such as blogs, news sites, weather, entertainment sites, and more. 

As with any ad or marketing message, Banner Display ads should have a clear call to action so that users will want to click on the ad and know exactly what they’ll get if they click on it. 

For your display ad to build brand awareness, make it easy for users to identify your business as soon as they see your ad. Your business name and/or logo should be on there, and it should be clear right off the bat what you have to offer. This helps potential customers recognize you, know right away if your business is relevant to what they are looking for, and stash the info away for future recognition.

How to Measure Success for Banner Display / 3rd Party Display

It’s important to know how much business your banner ads are really driving. You can see which display ads get the most engagement using tracked links and phone numbers. The two metrics for display advertising are: 

  • Impressions: how many times your ad appears on a page that a potential customer is viewing 
  • Clicks: how many of those views turn into an action, such as a click-through to your landing page

These two performance metrics can help you determine if your targeting and messaging for your ads attract the right results.
