Promote Trust and Confidence

Potential buyers can read reviews and see ratings, based on a 5-star system, to check out what actual buyers think about the product. This boosts purchaser confidence that it’s a reputable item and what they need.

Sometimes customers seem interested, but aren’t yet ready to buy. They navigate away from your site and may never return. Google Shopping keeps them in your sights with dynamic remarketing ads. These ads are seen just by lookers who have already been to your site, but not bought. It keeps you top of mind and gives customers a reason to come back.

The system also offers remarketing lists for search ads, or RLSA. By customizing your keywords, ads and bids, you can pinpoint shoppers who have been to your website in the past. These ads show up when they use the Google search bar.

Advertising in Google for products customers are looking to buy is a great way to connect with them. The product images really stand out and with the recent changes in Google search, they’re even more prominent.
