Through a targeted digital ad campaign, you can successfully meet your audience in their day-to-day routines. Let’s look at an example of coming alongside your consumer digitally as she goes about her day:
Sarah starts her day catching up with emails and scrolling her favorite social media apps – your business can be there with them! When Sarah engages with your content, you can remarket specifically to her, keeping your brand at the top of her feeds.
When Sarah takes a break during work, she may search Google for solutions to a work issue or research a DIY idea – your brand can be on page 1! When it’s time to prepare dinner, she will search for recipes and how-to videos on YouTube – your brand can show up again!
When it’s time to unwind with some binge-watching, your business can display in-stream ads through a targeted geofencing campaign.
You’ve definitely caught her attention.
Sarah visits your website from the comfort of the couch and submits a contact form with her name and email. And just like that, you’re back in her inbox the next morning with an eNewsletter campaign.
