Let me share an interesting story with you…
Few months back at Raybal Group, a potential client walks in and discusses the opportunities of digital marketing in Kuwait. As the meeting progressed, we shared our previous campaign details. The was astonished to see the results on Google Display Network (GDN).
Being over excited about the scope of digital marketing, the client over leveraged the investment on Digital marketing. He was over confident about the return on investment on digital platform. Unlike in offline marketing, you have forecast available on Google search ads and Google display ads.
Unfortunately, the Display & Search both campaigns turned out to be a flop. The failure was not because of Digital platform not being a right platform. The major fault with the Search ads campaign was with keyword intent. If you don’t capture the intention of the user with a certain search query, majority of the leads so generated wouldn’t be valid.
