Perpetua's Sponsored Display feature can be broken down into 2 types: Product Targeting (PT) and Audiences Targeting (aka. Remarketing).

Within each targeting type we offer pre-made strategies called "segments" to help you input your objectives. Below is our SD structure breakdown.

PT segments:
*️⃣Competitor Product Targeting: Capture traffic from competitor product pages
*️⃣ Brand Defense Product Targeting: Appear on your own pages to cross-sell, upsell, and dominate your own search space to protect your brand against competitors

Remarketing segments:
Advertised Products Views Remarketing: Target shoppers who viewed products in this goal [over the past 30 days] but did not purchase them

*️⃣ Similar Products Views Remarketing: Target shoppers who viewed products similar to products in this goal [over the past 30 days] and did not purchase them

Custom Segments:

*️⃣ Custom ASINs Product Targeting: Target a customized group of products of your choice

*️⃣ Custom Audiences Targeting: Target a specific audience of your choice

Benefits of using Sponsored Display Ads

  • Allows you to competitor conquest by placing your products under your competitors' listings.

  • Reach a broader audience and increase brand awareness.

  • Takes advantage of the keyword and ASIN targets that have been harvested from Sponsored Products campaigns and utilize this data in Sponsored Display campaigns.
