The Artistry of High-Impact Discovery Ads

For marketers seeking to connect with audiences on Google’s most popular feeds, high impact ‘Discovery Ads’ offer a creative solution to a common problem – how to halt consumers mid-scroll and inspire measurable action.

Sometimes called ‘Native Ads’ because they mirror the look and feel of the platform in which they appear, Discovery Ads are a welcome evolution from text-only ads – which despite the best efforts of crafty copywriters were often ignored completely.

Turning “Window Shoppers” into Consumers

It’s hardly surprising that consumers today are more visually literate than ever before. As such, they are drawn to imagery that connects on a deeper emotional level – and therein lies the opportunity with Discovery Ads. Or as Google observed recently, advertisers now have the “canvas, brush and paint” to create “high-quality visual experiences that delight the eye while offering authentic, meaningful messages”. This means potentially driving more sales with up to 3 billion people as they scroll through content on YouTube, Discover and Gmail.

How it Works

Google employs tools such as a “smart” bidding process, audience expansion modules and machine learning to attract the most qualified users to its Discovery Ads – but advertisers and specifically content creators have a part to play by ensuring that ads feature the “highest-quality image assets.”
