In short, they are the “visual” or ‘banner” ads that stand out on most of your go-to platforms.
Targeting & The Google Display Network
What makes the Google Display Network elite amongst others? It covers over 2 million sites and reaches over 90% of the people who have access to the internet. That means your display ads have serious potential and probability to connect with customers.
Reach People at Different Stages of the Buying Cycle
Google Display Ads allow you to connect with customers at different stages of the buying cycle. They help you capture the attention of your target audience even if they aren’t necessarily ‘looking’ for you. Google Display ads are a great fit in a ‘brand awareness’ strategy, by putting your ads in front of people at the very start of the buying cycle.
Google Display Ads also aid in reconnecting with those who have already interacted with your business in some way, whether it’s from a simple website page view, or something more valuable, such as an ‘add to cart.” Reconnecting with customers should be an important part of your marketing strategy.
Unlike other forms of advertising such as television or radio, it is a relatively inexpensive investment to start running display ads. Pricing is typically calculated by its Cost-per-thousand impressions. Where one impression is equivalent to a single page view by an internet user.

With only an image and some text, you can start creating display ad campaigns that will help you drive traffic back to your website.
