  • Setting up a display campaign with AdWords

    LESSON #6

  • What is a display campaign?

    A display campaign is a campaign based on visual banners and /or text ads, and it is managed through the Google AdWords platform.

    These banners and ads are published on more than 2 million websites, videos, and apps, which make up the Google Display Network.

    The ads appear on the basis on certain targeting criteria.

    A display campaign mainly serves a brand awareness goal, as it targets users that are not familiar with the brand being advertised.

  • What is a display campaign?


  • Examples of display banners

  • Why display?

    We’re all spending more time online and 95% of that time is spent reading and engaging with content on websites.

    The Google Display Network can help us reach all these potential customers.

    The Google Display Network helps yus ou generate awareness by getting our ads in front of consumers, so they can learn about our business as they consider their options.

  • Display targeting settings

    1 - CONTEXTUAL (KEYWORDS) Your ads will appear on website containing a list of keywords you selected.

    2 – DEMOGRAPHIC You can select your audience by age group, gender and parental status.

    3 – TOPICS Your ads will appear on websites talking about specific topics you selected. More on topics here


  • Display targeting settings

    4- AUDIENCE INTERESTS Your ads will appear to users with specific interests that you selected. There are two types of interests: affinity audiences and in-market audiences. The latter include users who are researching products and are actively considering buying a service or product like those you offer. More on audience interests here

    5- PLACEMENTS Your ads will appear on specific websites which are part of the Google Display Network and which you selected.


  • Display targeting settings

    You can use one or more targeting settings. The more options you select for an ad group, the more specific and restricted your audience will be.

    Examples of display targeting settings

    • Age + Audience Interests

    • Gender + Audience Interests

    • Topics + Contextual Keywords

    • Placements + Contextual Keywords

  • Step #1

    Log into your Google AdWords account. Create a new campaign by selecting «Display network only»

  • Step #2

    AdWords will now let you select your marketing objective. Select «Visit website» if you want your ad to drive people’s clicks in order to visit your website.

  • Step #3

    Select your target location, language and daily budget (1€ will be our placeholder budget as long as the campaign is inactive).

  • Step #4

    Now it’s time to create your first ad group.

    Each group you create will have its specific targeting settings. I recommend writing your targeting settings as the name of your ad group.

    Example of ad group name:

    Women 18-64 interested in travelling

  • Step #5

    Set your max CPC Bid: our placeholder bid will be €0,15.

    Set your landing page, i.e. your website URL where you want your users to land

  • Step #6

    Choose your ad group’s targeting settings.

    • For contextual (keywords) targeting

  • Step #6

    • For audience interests

    Then navigate through In-market audiences and affinity audiences. 

  • Step #6

    • For topics

    Then select your topics from the list 

  • Step #6

    • For demographics

    Then select your demographic options

  • Step #6

    • For placements (websites)

    Then add your own placements

  • Step #7

    Create your responsive ad

    Responsive ads automatically adjust their size, appearance and format to fit just about any available ad space, which is why they are strongly recommended. More on responsive ads here

    In order to create your responsive ad, add an image and text.


  • Task.

    Given the buyer persona(s) you outlined for the Augmented Traveler, decide, together with your group, which targeting options work best for your Display campaign.

    If you feel like you want to test multiple targeting options, you can create multiple ad groups.

    Then, try to create for each group a responsive ad using the materials provided to you by the Professor.
