1. You Can Reach a Huge Audience

Decades ago, reaching a worldwide audience was only achievable through tv and radio commercials or newspapers. It would cost you a significant amount and you would have to compete with the biggest brands.

Fortunately, this is now a thing of the past and it’s easy for any business to theoretically reach anyone.

For example, Google processes over 3.5 billion searches a day which is equal to 70,000 searches a second. This means that if you were to run some Google ads, you have a huge potential audience.

2. Online Ads Are Very Effective

Online advertisement isn’t you placing an ad in a newspaper and hoping some of your target audience see it.

With online ads, you can choose specifically target your target market for optimal performance. You can also target them through their specific interests or by terms they would be searching for.

For example, if you sold running shoes you could target people on Facebook by age, gender, and those who have an interest in running.

On Google, you could create an ad campaign and bid on keywords such as ‘running shoes’ or ‘best running shoes to buy’. This allows your ad to show up for people searching these terms who are wanting to buy.

3. It’s Cost-Effective

The great thing about online ads is you can tweak them and stop/start them at any time.

If an ad is not performing well, you can pause it for a few days or change it altogether. Traditional methods of advertising don’t allow you to do this.

If you placed an ad in a magazine, you have to hope it works. Whereas with online advertising, you can look at analytics and finely tune your ad accordingly.

You can also start advertising for a very small amount. Social media platforms will let you choose a budget for a couple of dollars a day if you like.
