What You Need to Know About Google Shopping Campaign Types

 In this Lesson, I will be walking you through Standard vs Performance Max shopping campaigns - the two main campaign types for Google Shopping ads.

Topics covered:

  • What the main differences are between Standard Shopping and Performance Max campaigns
  • The importance of having both campaign types in your toolbox
  • How Performance Max campaigns impact your other Google Ads campaigns

Setting your Google Shopping feed up for success

Your feed is the data input to your Google Shopping campaigns and is your initial decider on how well your campaigns perform.

Topics covered:

  • How to think about your Google Shopping feed without being scared of the word XML
  • The most important attributes you should always add
  • How - and what - attributes you should optimize

Performance Max as your baseline campaign

Too many agencies, freelancers and in-house teams invest heavily in a Standard Shopping setup without testing Performance Max. But what if an automated setup you barely touch could outperform your other setup?

Topics covered:

  • Why Performance Max should be your campaign "to beat"
  • How to build on a Performance Max setup
  • Why ad inventory is the main concern with Performance Max campaigns

The Case for Advanced Campaign Setups

Performance Max can be great, but the one-size-fits-all campaign type might not work for your marketing strategy. Advanced Standard Shopping setups is the alternative - for some.

Topics covered:

  • When to use a more Advanced Standard Shopping setup
  • Smart Bidding means the best of both worlds
  • How the priorities setting is the crucial step to more advanced setups
