Google’s AI “Discovery campaign” has revolutionised the world with its handy content. It’s amazing how Google has taken everything from the hands of advertisers to its own. Be it optimisation, creating headlines, targeting audience, bidding, and consistency, the Discovery campaign does it all easily.

If you have a new business, a Discovery campaign is the most lucrative option. You can focus on improving the quality of your services while leaving the marketing to Google.

Sounds convenient, right? This article will walk you through a brief guide to Discovery campaigns – when and why to test it. So be sure to read till the end.

What Are Discovery Campaigns?

Discovery campaign is an AI (Artificial Intelligence) of Google that generates the most interesting and relevant ads, users are looking for. Basically, it’s a news feed that appears in the Google app of the most potential target audience.

Unlike standard ads, Discovery campaign includes strong visual effects to appeal to users. It contains vibrant images instead of boring meta descriptions, slugs, and tags. In short, the goal is to provide a solution to users in the easiest way.

When To Test Discovery Campaigns?

How would you know the right time to test Discovery campaigns that will give a massive kick to your brand?

See, this is why most marketers struggle to achieve the goal because they ignore the adequate time phrase. If you’re about to advertise a new brand, you need to first raise brand awareness among your audience.

When a user sees your ad for the first time, you cannot expect them to trust you just because you started an ad campaign worth $100. This is where the role of Discovery campaigns comes in.

The very first step towards effective marketing is creating awareness about your brand.

And, this is the ideal time to test Discovery campaigns. Testing Discovery campaigns will give you the following benefits:

1. Your Audience Will Get To Know Your Business.

This is the first step when you should test a Discovery campaign – to get your audience to know about your brand. If you have a new brand to promote, nobody on the digital platform is aware of it. So, it is the ideal time to test Discovery campaigns.

The Discovery campaign will target the most relevant users that are looking for your services/products. Your ads will appear in their newsfeed with vibrant images and eye-catching headlines to make them click on them.

2. Your Audience Will Start Liking Your Services.

Making the viewer like your brand is the most important thing to do. A user will never buy anything from you if they don’t like you. And, a user will only like your brand when he finds it helpful, which can’t be done better than a Discovery campaign. Once your audience is aware of your brand, they will start liking your services.

3. Your Audience Will Trust You.

A conversion happens when a user trusts your claims. Consumers do not make buying decisions because of how good your products are; they do because of how good your representation is. And, it cannot be possible by standard ads, so you must do Discovery campaigns to win their trust.
