Call to Action

Next, make sure you have a CLEAR call to action. I usually make the CTA look like a button that stands out, encouraging visitors to click it. A simple button that says “Shop Now >>” or “Learn More!” can go a long way.

Images or graphics should also be carefully considered when creating your ads. The big advantage you have over search or text ads is the display or visual aspect.

Clean Image for GDN

You must use a noise-free image for your GDN ads. Because people don’t love to see ads containing excessive text & visual. So it would be wiser to use less text & elements in the visual. On the other hand, clean & smart image always grabs the higher percentage of attention to the views.
