3. Advanced social media branching with PPC integration: In 2023, with PPC campaigns, businesses will branch out to whatever social media platform that they want to be present on. That certainly doesn’t mean targeting every single social platform out there, but what it really means is to understand where your audience spends most of their time online, and target them via paid ads.
This trend has been present since 2016, and it seems like moving on to 2023, paid search’s role in social media branching will continue to grow. People are becoming more familiar with shopping via Facebook, and Instagram, and with PPC integration it’s going to become even easier to shop on social media. A great example would be to be able to purchase an item directly through an ad on Facebook, or Instagram without leaving either the site or sending them directly to specific social media platforms.
4. Combining AI, automation, and PPC: AI and ML will definitely affect paid search in 2023. With AI’s ability to read and interpret data, businesses will be able to analyze and understand their customers better and thus take more effective actions.
With AI, you can analyze your business's past performance data and patterns, and create a forecast and trend analysis for upcoming months and years. This means AI can help advertisers to create more effective and efficient campaigns that will bring in more revenue in the long run. AI will also lead advertisers with their bidding strategies because it’s more likely to predict which terms are likely to perform well for a specific targeted audience’s ad group.
In addition, AI can determine new keywords that might work for businesses' PPC campaigns. It’ll help identify new keyword trends also and test them out to see if they bring in a higher conversion rate.
5. Personalized PPC ads: Personalization has always been one of the top factors in every industry and especially in every area of digital marketing and it’s about the be “the trend” in PPC marketing too. Dynamic search ads are one of the most effective ways to be in touch with your audience, but on the contrary, they’re very time-consuming to maintain. In 2023, Google will introduce personalized dynamic search ads that let marketers create templates and automate them to modify based on location, device, language and etc. which makes it easier to target the right audience.
