Features of contextual and targeted advertising is that it is shown to the target audience depending on the requests. Only contextual advertising demonstrates in search engines and in the form of banner ads on the pages of sites, and targeting - in social networks. Accordingly, in the first case, promotion will cost more expensive, since it covers a larger audience.
Search advertising is a type of contextual promotion, when the site appears on the first page of the output in response to a key query labeled "advertising". This format is beneficial in that the site quickly gets into the top 10. Minus - clicks are expensive (the price of Internet advertising directly depends on competition), the site will immediately lose positions in the top output, as soon as you stop paying. At the same time, users may not notice advertising because of "banner blindness".
Retargeting is a promotion method in which banners are shown to customers who have already visited the website. It helps to reattract their attention to the resource, improve conversion rates, increase sales. The average price of the cost of advertising - from 1.5 to 2 dollars, depending on the chosen platform.
Banner advertising is presented in the form of graphic ads (static or dynamic), clicking on which you can go to the desired resource. Banners are placed on different parts of the website - at the top or bottom of the page, on the side, etc. The company pays for the cost of a click on the advertisement or for 1 thousand impressions. In the second case, the price starts from 1 to 5 dollars, depending on the chosen platform.
You should not overlook advertising in YouTube, where the average cost of clicking on a link starts from 0.1 to 0.3 dollars. This is one of the most popular video platforms where you can place different types of commercials. Ads are often shown at the beginning or end of clips, and they can be presented in different formats.
Social networks reach almost all users on the internet, so they are an effective way to attract their attention to your brand. The average price of a click in social networks ranges from 0, 5-2 dollars.
In addition to paid advertising, there are free methods of promotion that can also bring businesses targeted customers. You can advertise your site and services on free bulletin boards, in forums, on different aggregators. Also to free ways of promotion can be attributed and social networks, for example in Instagram, due to the so-called organics.
However, as a rule, the effectiveness of paid advertising is still higher than in the case of free methods. We recommend using paid and free methods in combination to maximize results.
