So, let's take a look at why performance marketing platforms are becoming increasingly popular in today's interconnected world...
As mentioned above, a performance marketing platform delivers brand-safe and user-friendly ads to customers, however, the big difference when compared to traditional advertising is that these ads are designed to reach potential customers before they have even competed typing what they are looking for in the search engine.
Remember the story about a group of friends or work colleagues searching for a piece of information, you can guarantee that whoever found it first did so with a little help from a performance marketing platform.
When it comes to this particular type of advertising, there are two main ways that your ad will be seen by a potential customer. Firstly, as a tile, and secondly, as an instant search.
Firstly, tiles are quick links that appear in the form of a company's logo and they will connect you directly to the desired website. Tiles will appear on both smartphones, on specific browsers or apps, and on desktops or laptops, on certain search engines and/or browsers.
Secondly, ads will naturally appear as suggestions when someone is conducting an instant search. For example, when you start typing, the app will predict and then auto complete your search query. By doing this, it will recommend you a link, which will of course be supplied by the performance marketing platform.
So, it is clear for all to see that when it comes to catching the eye of potential customers, a business needs to rethink how it uses the internet in order to get its foot in the door of the client as quickly as possible. When it comes to the modern age, performance marketing platforms have been created to do just that. So, there you go, another mystery of the internet has been solved, just be sure to take advantage!
