3) Google Ads Will Allow You To Target Customers Through Two Networks
Google Ads also has the benefit of allowing businesses who use it, to target their customers through the Google Display Network and the Search Network. The Display Network will help you to engage with your target audience, whilst they are watching YouTube, on an app, browsing through some of their favourite websites etc. A more outbound form of marketing, it will showcase your ads alongside these platforms. The Google Search Network on the other hand targets users whilst they are online and searching for particular phrases and keywords. A form of PPC advertising, it will produce far more organic searches and is a more inbound form of marketing.
4) You Can Use It Alongside Your SEO Campaign
A key part of an SEO campaign is to allow your business to rank highly on Google for your business to appear above your competitors. In order to organically rank on Google, your business will have to put a lot of effort in, in order for your business to appear at the top.

An innovative feature of Google Adwords is that you can use it to target a particular demographic. For example, if you run a gardening business, you might want those of an older generation. This, of course, is just a generalisation but if your business does fall into a particular niche or does have a clear demographic, Google Adwords will help you to determine what the conversion rate is and see where the most traffic is coming from.
