Key Types of Paid Media

Paid media is no longer simply about PPC in search results, even though that remains the most popular kind. When choosing a display network to advertise on, you have to consider the audience and the best hosts and advertising flavours they respond to. Retail works well on PPC, for example, whereas B2B services might suit LinkedIn advertising. If you’re trying to light the fire under a content marketing campaign that has a broad appeal, native advertising can get your ads on mainstream newspapers’ sites for very low rates. Sometimes a blend of media is appropriate; other times you’re best off focusing narrowly.

Here’s a quick rundown:


Examples: Google AdWords; Microsoft AdCenter

Pros: Targeted to what people are actually searching for

Cons: Limited to search; not appropriate to unaware potential customers

Shopping Campaigns

Examples: Google; Bing

Pros: Shows your products and prices in more detail on the search page

Cons: More expensive than PPC, although conversions can be better


Examples: Display; RLSAs; Shopping

Pros: Allows advertisers to take a second bite at the cherry by delivering ads to those who’ve looked at certain products

Cons: Can be stopped by ad blockers and can make some customers feel uncomfortable

Google Display Network (GDN)

Examples: Google Display Network

Pros: Spreads AdWords ads over a larger set of Google-owned resources, such as YouTube and Gmail

Cons: Needs care to stay efficient

Customer Match Email Remarketing

Examples: Google

Pros: Hyper-personal marketing aimed at email lists

Cons: Potential for customers to feel intruded upon

Gmail inbox advertising

Examples: Gmail ads

Pros: Advertise to Gmail users based on their interests

Cons: Some people cite privacy issues, although Google insists the process is entirely automated

YouTube TrueView

Examples: YouTube ads

Pros: Plays ads before YouTube views but there’s no charge if the ad isn’t watched through

Cons: Message has to be relevant and entertaining for it to be watched, so can be costly to make ads

Paid Social

Examples: Programmatic Display

Pros: Advertise to an already engaged audience relatively unobtrusively with a high degree of relevance

Cons: In-stream ads can draw negative comments and badly-timed ads can backfire

Programmatic & Media Buying

Examples: Programmatic Display

Pros: Highly targetable advertising platform for maximum efficiency and conversion rate

Cons: Still a relatively new technology with lots of intermediate agents, which can potentially lead to errors

Native Advertising

Examples: Outbrain; Taboola

Pros: Get your ads displayed on anything from niche sites or generic publications such as newspapers’ websites. Generally good engagement

Cons: Highly competitive sector with a tendency towards click bait means ads have to be clever to stand out

Amazon Sponsored Products

Examples: Amazon

Pros: Similar to AdWords but solely on Amazon sites, these ads display via search term bids among Amazon’s own listings

Cons: Relies on search for products
