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.

Their Story:

Natural health supplements created by women for women

With long-held passions for inner health and natural healing, our client started her supplement brand as a weight loss supplement manufacturer with over 400 Australian stockists. After a short time, she established the currently biggest and most respected online Turmeric range of nutraceuticals in Australia and partnered with Social Geeks to run her multi-platform e-Commerce marketing.

With the client’s Turmeric e-Commerce success, she started to work on an idea to get women more engaged with each other around the topic of menopause. The biggest complaint most women had was there wasn’t a dedicated trusted high-quality natural range to go to help alleviate symptoms women were experiencing during this time.

With Social Geeks’ years long partnership with the client, she asked Social Geeks’ help to launch her menopause supplement range and reach new heights together once more in the digital space.

Our Solution:

Increase brand awareness with Google Performance Max

The aim of the launch campaign is to get the brand in front of as many eyes as possible. We at Social Geeks recommended a multi-platform campaign that would highlight the gap in the supplement market that this new menopause-focused range would fill.  As Google Performance Max rolled out in the first quarter of 2022, we were keen on utilising the new ad type for our longtime client as it produced great results for her sister Turmeric brand. 

Thanks to these campaigns, the client garnered a major increase in website traffic with  86,254 impressions from Google Performance Max alone in their first 30-days. As Google Performance Max utilises AI-machine learning and a full funnel targeting, we saw a lift in brand awareness which led to 35.67 conversions at a highly efficient cost per click at $0.99 and a 5.56% conversion rate (2.8% ave. for Health  eCommerce).

We saw a period-over-period lift on their Performance Max campaigns resulting in a 378.6% Return on Ad Spend.
