What Is a Performance Max Campaign on Google?

Performance Max campaigns are a new type of ad campaign. They allow advertisers to reach Google’s entire ad inventory with a single campaign with qualifying objectives. Think of it as an enhanced goal-focused Search and Shopping campaign in one. They make use of extensive machine learning and automation to optimise those campaigns on your behalf.

You can use them for campaigns where your objective is to drive sales, generate leads, get website traffic, or drive in-store visits.

Get more conversions with Google Performance Max

As Performance Max rolled out in the first quarter of 2022, we at Social Geeks were keen on utilising the new ad type for our longtime baby fashion brand client. We launched Performance Max campaigns for select clients towards the end of February this year. 

Thanks to these campaigns, the client saw a 612% lift in revenue at $37,455 for the month of April. As Google Performance Max utilises AI-machine learning and a full funnel targeting, we saw a 561% increase in website traffic with 5,674 clicks on the campaign which led to a 710% increase in conversions at a highly efficient cost per click at $0.70. Conversion rate increased by 22% compared side-by-side with running Search & Shopping campaigns.

We saw a period-over-period lift, comparing their Smart Shopping Campaigns to their Performance Max campaigns. There was an overall major lift in revenue with only a 9% increase in cost, resulting in a total of a whopping 939.31% increase in Return on Ad Spend.
