Daisycon offers advertisers the opportunity to generate more visibility, reach and revenue through a strategic partnership with a CSS. The advantages and working method are explained in this article.
More visibility in the shopping ad block of Google Shopping. Google only de-duplicates by product, not by webshop. Because of this, it is possible that ads from different products from multiple CSSs are visible next to each other in the ad space of Google Shopping. This is an advantage over shops that only work with one CSS.
The fact that multiple CSSs are placing ads on behalf of your shop does not mean that Google charges more for a click on these ads. Read more about Google Shopping's price auction here.
As an advertiser, you generally have more margin for bidding in Google Shopping compared to a CSS partner. The ads via an additional CSS should work additionally and therefore do not interfere with your own Google Shopping campaign.
You will be charged according to the current CPS rates set in the campaign at Daisycon. So you only pay a fee when there is a sale. The CPC costs are for the CSS partner, so the risk is low.
Which CSS partner should I choose?
When choosing CSS partners, it is important to think carefully about who you want to work with. There are currently over 100 CSSs active within Google Shopping. Therefore, when choosing the right partner, consider the following aspects:
The popularity and functionality of the comparison website
Is it a well functioning comparison website? About 5% of the traffic in Google Shopping clicks on the link at the bottom of the advertisement 'via (name CSS)' and first lands on the website of the CSS. If this landing page works well, the chance of conversion is higher.
Google gives CSSs a quality score
The popularity and brand awareness of the CSS influences the visibility in the shopping block. CSSs with a better quality score are given priority over CSSs that perform less. Choosing CSSs therefore has a major impact on the performance of your Google Shopping ads.
How many CSS partners can I connect?
It is possible to connect multiple CSS partners to your campaign, however, it is not the case that each additional CSS partner will immediately generate more traffic. The different bidding strategies and algorithms of the CSS partners should make it possible to show your product ads as often as possible for the right search query. However, search volume will not necessarily increase when connecting more CSS partners. We recommend building a solid partnership with a select group of CSS partners. When a campaign is running well with one or more CSS partners, connecting an additional CSS may have a negative effect on the performance of already existing promotions.
