Google has given advertisers an early holiday gift by launching this Special Offer feature in its PLAs.
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) November 20, 2014
The Search Monitor, the leader in precision ad intelligence for marketers and affiliate managers, today announced it will help marketers this holiday season by posting the most popular Special Offers appearing in Google’s Product Listing Ad (PLA) unit.
The PLA ‘Special Offer’ is a new Google feature that has tremendous potential for driving holiday clicks. Advertisers can now choose to add a clickable link labeled ‘Special Offer’ below their current PLA. When clicked, the user sees an elegantly designed pop-up revealing the offer details, the expiration date, the coupon code, and a link to buy.
“For searchers, it’s a holiday dream come true,” explained Lori Weiman, CEO of The Search Monitor. “Users can easily scan through the offer details and coupon codes of multiple advertisers without leaving the search results page.”
The new PLA feature also represents an attractive competitive opportunity for advertisers, who can easily monitor and learn from competitive offers.
“Google has also given advertisers an early holiday gift by launching this Special Offer feature in its PLAs,” continued Weiman. “It’s now even easier for advertisers to monitor offers run by any competitor on any set of keywords and use it to formulate their competitive response, in real-time.”
The company reported that it will provide the most popular offers—and their advertisers—every day through the holidays for 60 different product categories. Categories include apparel, beauty, business products, food, health, hobby, home & garden, sports & outdoors, and travel.
