Are you fully leveraging all your SEM, social media, and online targeting assets?
With search cost-per-click (CPC) rates starting to rise again in many industries, it's important to make sure you are fully leveraging all your search engine marketing (SEM), social media, and online targeting assets.
This week, I'll cover five assets you may not be fully deploying in your social media and SEM campaigns. I also include a special note for retailers struggling with the big changes that have come to Google Product Listing Ads (PLAs).
Special Note for Retailers
In addition to taking note of the above advice, retailers need to make sure that they are fully deployed into Google's Product Listing Ads shopping feeds, especially if their average price, profit margin, and conversion is high enough to cover at least the minimum one-cent bid per click.
Please do not wait: get your data feed in order! A clean data feed is a powerful SEM asset, not only for the Google PLA ecosystem but also for the comparison shopping engines (CSE) and other marketplaces such as those provided by eBay, Amazon, Buy.com, Overstock, and Sears.
