New AdWords Audience Insights Report Offers Deeper Dive Into Audience Demographics
Google VP Brad Bender says the new tool - which includes details like interests, locations and device usage - is currently rolling out.
During today’s SMX keynote with Brad Bender, Google’s vice president of product management for the Google Display Network, Bender announced a new Adwords Audience Insights report that outlines details like demographics, interests, locations and device usage for people included on an advertiser’s remarketing lists.
Bender said the new Adwords tool will allow advertisers to look at people who have bought from them, and better understand their audiences.
Bender’s announcement was accompanied by an Adwords blog post, defining how advertisers can use the new Audience Insights report, along with the a screenshot of what it looks like.
If most people who converted on your site are jazz enthusiasts, you may wish to add this affinity audience to your campaign. Or, if many of your customers are females between the ages of 25 and 34, you might want to customize your ad creative to appeal to this demographic.
Google Adwords Audience Insights
The Adwords blog post included two quick case studies of advertisers that are already taking advantage of the Audience Insights tool. One was from Base, a Belgian telecommunications company that used data from Audience Insights to drive more mobile phone subscriptions, and the other from Sony PlayStation, which used Audience Insights to lift its GDN click-through rate 31 percent by targeting classical music enthusiasts.
Bender said the Audience Insights report is rolling out now, and should be fully available for advertisers during the next few weeks.
