In today’s episode of The Digible Dudes, David is joined by Adam Walters and Magan Haase. Adam is the director of paid media at Digible, and Megan is a paid media strategist at Digible. In this episode, we talk about calling adverts and the different options available.
They start by discussing the quality and efficiency of using call extension ads vs. on-site ads. Megan talks about her blog and two case studies conducted where they saw that a lot more quality traffic was coming from those on-site calls versus Google ad extensions.
In the next section, they explain the types of online advertisements available for companies such as google ad extensions, call-only ads, and on-site adverts. Megan and Adam agree that calls on ads are better than ad extensions as call-only ads on web search look more similar to organic results than ad extensions, which cause more clients to click on these. Further, they discuss the cost efficiency of call-only ads.
At the end of the episode, they talk about the improvement in quality leads over time and the effect of COVID on lead quality. They state that COVID has led to the improvement of lead quality as more businesses work from home with their clients. They end the discussion by talking about whether a company should run call only or full adverts for their brand and testing adverts on a new set of audiences.
