Google opens Customer Match to Shopping Campaigns

Google is extending its Customer Match feature to Shopping Campaigns, enabling retail marketers to target (or exclude) customers with product listing ads in web and image search results.

Customer Match for Shopping builds on the offering already available for search text ads, Gmail and YouTube that allows advertisers to upload customer email lists into AdWords that can be matched against signed-in Google accounts for ad targeting and bidding.

Advertisers can segment their customer lists, upload them into AdWords audiences and remarket to those audiences already familiar with the brand.

Google says Customer Match for Shopping will roll out generally later this summer, but you can sign up here for the beta now.
