Marin Software Offers Support for Google’s New Responsive Search Ad Format

Advertisers Can Increase Conversions Up to 15% with Google’s Machine Learning

San Francisco, CA (November 29, 2018) – Marin Software (NASDAQ: MRIN), a leading provider of digital marketing software for performance-driven advertisers and agencies, has leveraged their industry expertise so that customers can identify the best ways to incorporate Google’s responsive search ads (RSA) into their digital advertising campaigns. Google’s groundbreaking ad format promises to bring greater flexibility—and more clicks—to ads that appear on the Google search engine results page (SERP).

An advertiser now has the ability to set up one ad with up to 15 headlines and four descriptions, and then Google will determine which combination will resonate most with a specific audience based on the advertisers’ stated goal. Leveraging machine learning to optimize ads allows for multiple opportunities to compete in auctions where specific keywords may trigger relevant ads. Early research shows that advertisers can increase clicks or conversions up to 15% by adding a responsive search ad to their ad groups.

As an independent third party optimizing search campaigns on behalf of its customers, Marin Software is uniquely positioned to offer education and insight to advertisers on leveraging this new ad format. Marin will present a webinar on December 6, 2018, to share its latest tips for RSA campaigns, including:

  • How to set up RSAs and establish conversion goals
  • How an advertiser’s product catalog can affect RSA performance
  • Best RSA practices to increase clicks and conversions

"Consumers are more curious and more demanding than ever before—and they expect ads that are uniquely relevant to them,” said Sylvanus Bent, Product Manager, Google. “With responsive search ads, you can combine your creativity with the power of Google’s machine learning to deliver the ad experiences your customers now expect."

“The shift to RSAs is an inflection point for search marketing,” said Wesley MacLaggan, SVP Marketing, Marin Software. “Advertisers who move quickly will be able to capitalize on Google’s massive machine learning capabilities, but many will need help to make a successful transition.”

For more information, sign up to attend Marin Software’s webinar, Getting Started with Responsive Search Ads (RSAs), on Thursday, December 6th at 10 am PT / 1 pm ET, co-hosted with Google.
