Integrate Google Ads Audiences

With the Google Ads customer match list, you can use your online and offline data to reach and re-engage your customers on Google search, Shopping-tab, Gmail, YouTube and Google display. Using information that your customers have shared with you, Customer Match will target ads to these customers and other customers similar to existing customers.

Customer matching is a useful advertising tool for brand awareness and increasing conversions. Here are some examples of different audiences you can target with Google customer matching

  • On Google search and Google shopping, you can optimise your campaigns by adjusting your bid based on what you know about your customers' activities.
  • On Gmail, you can reach your customers or new prospects with similar interests with personalised ads at the top of users' inboxes.

  • On YouTube, you can reach new segments by targeting segments that are similar to your most valuable customers.

  • Google Display allows you to reach your customers or new potential customers with similar interests with customised ads in the Google Display Network.

How often can you update?

We use a replacement list when we update as it does not affect current campaigns you may have running. This means that each update has to be worked through by Google and can take up to 24 hours before you can send a new list. We show a message that the "Audience" is not ready for update if it is being updated. 

You can also see the status under Google Ads by clicking on Audiences and scrolling down to your audience. The name of the Audience is "Rule Export - "Name of your Filter" (Date + Time)". If you need a new updated target group when processing an older one, we recommend that you create a new filter. Keep in mind that changes to audiences can take up to 48 hours to be reflected in campaigns according to Google.
