Digital Marketing Display Ad for Restaurant
Our Solution

We choose the ad networks and audience targeting for the campaign based on benchmarks from previous campaigns. We audited all web pages to where the ads were driving and made changes to maximize conversion opportunities. We ran Google Display Ads early in the campaign to raise awareness then focused on Search Ads (see below, right) to capitalize on the high volume of users searching during Restaurant Week. We monitored the campaigns very closely, making hundreds of targeting changes, excluding improper placements and ensuring our ads were showing up in front of the correct audience at the correct time.
