Hunting for the perfect gift can take time, so Google is helping streamline the process for Philippine shoppers. Today, Google rolled out Shopping Ads in the Philippines — an image-based ads that help shoppers find the products they’re searching for and quickly connect with the merchants who sell those products. You’ll see them alongside your Google Search results.
So if you’re searching for lunch-boxes, shoes, or backpacks, you can find exactly the one you’re looking for — and easily connect with a retailer who sells it.
Retailers, reach people when they want to buy what you sell
Businesses can use Google Shopping campaigns to promote the products they’re selling, boost traffic to their website or local store, and find better qualified leads by putting product images, price, and business name in front of people searching on Google. Like search ads, merchants only pay when people click through to their website. Instead of targeting based on keywords, however, these ads are targeted based on the product data provided. Learn more here.
Whatever you’re looking for to buy, shopping ads can help you find it.(PR)
