“Is there any way to place ads beyond Facebook and Google?” This is the most commonly-asked question to the Ad360 team. E-commerce businesses commonly feel “trapped,” as if the only places to advertise are these sites. Read below to break through this promotional plateau!
While their networks are massive and their reach powerful, platforms like Google and Facebook do have limitations when it comes to online advertising. Their ad networks are “restricted,” meaning any ad campaign you budget only runs ads on their network – nowhere else. You won’t appear on any blogs that 77% of internet users read regularly. You won’t pop up on many mobile apps or games.
This “restricted network” limits your online store’s potential for growth! Even worse, it makes ads appear in the same context, meaning users can more easily “tune them out.” Thus, your options to diversify your advertising strategy for Shopify can feel “trapped” within a single network. If you are having trouble finding success on Google or Facebook, this feeling can be discouraging. If you cannot figure out how to make Google or Facebook work for your Shopify product advertising, where do you turn to!
Simply put, programmatic ads offer you access to the hundreds of networks beyond Google and Facebook – you are free! Finally, e-commerce business owners can use a Shopify advertising tool that opens the entire web to ad placements.
Even better, programmatic ads use powerful software that, after receiving your daily allocated budget, will automatically place ads across the web in the most relevant spots to your business. When it comes to increasing sales on Shopify, there may be no tool better than programmatic ads. You will appear in a variety of online contexts to your customers, becoming memorable and expanding your promotional reach. Customers will be impressed – and consider your business more legitimate – just by the fact they see your ads in so many unique spots! They will assume, “Wow, these guys are all over, huh? I should check them out.” When it comes to increasing sales on Shopify and expanding the reach of your Shopify product advertising, nothing beats programmatic ads.

Since we covered the basics of context ads in our previous post here, this entry provides the 3 key steps to making your context ads a success. Hint – the third step is the most important to increase your sales on Shopify, so read all the way to the bottom 😊
Because context ads are powered by “web crawling” software, you want to make sure you pick a service that allows you to scour the entire web. Even better, pick an ad service that reaches mobile apps, too.
You’ll find lists of the best “context ad” providers online, but we’ll let you in on a secret – most only cover a few networks.
Furthermore, some services don’t offer the chance to combine contextual ads with other digital marketing strategies, hamstringing its effectiveness! Make contextual ads a key Shopify advertising tool in your repertoire, but don’t make it the only promotional tactic you use!
When advertising a Shopify store, don’t limit yourself just to Google and Facebook networks. Sure, social media and search engine platforms are great, but there are Shopify advertising tools out there that empower you to place ads on independent websites and across the web!
When setting up context ads, don’t rely solely on the tools provided by these networks. They are powerful, but some Shopify advertising tools and apps can easily extend your reach to millions of independent blogs and sites.
Marketing data shows that contextual ads are best when paired with ad retargeting. That means that, after retargeting users who have previously visited your site, you place ads on sites that share similar interests related to your product lines!
To increase sales on Shopify, contextual retargeting can encourage you to partner with other sites within your industry’s ecosystem. Using the custom car accessory example from above, that same business could partner with auto repair shops and auto hardware firms. Both sell different products related to cars, but the customer overlap would make contextual retargeting a winning advertising strategy for Shopify.
