How Email Marketing Is Revolutionizing Paid Search through Customer Match #SMX

Cleo Hage speaking at SMX West

Cleo Hage, Paid Search Strategist, Wordstream, is going to talk about the future of email marketing. Yes, this is an SEM presentation.

Email is the OG of digital marketing.
Email is cluttered.
Email is growing.
Emails aren’t going anywhere.

You log into things, get updates and receive shipping notifications through email. Even a GOOD email campaign has a 20% open rate. And then a click-through rate of 5% on top of that. You’re left with FOMO — 80% of unopened email and 95% of lost leads.

The answer is Customer Match, the ability to upload lists of email into AdWords to create audiences for precision targeting!

Read about how to use Customer Match to target individual specific people in search ads, YouTube Ads and Gmail Ads in our liveblog coverage of this session from SMX West.
