An ad placed on the wrong site in the wrong context simply won’t work. It will be of no use to the user viewing it and they’ll likely find it distracting and even annoying. It won’t secure click-throughs and it won’t convert.
All it will be is a simple waste of your advertising spend.
An ad placed on a website in the right context will complement and encourage action. It can increase brand awareness amongst the customers that are relevant to your business and will encourage click-throughs and conversions. That’s where you can make a difference to your bottom line with Contextual Targeting.
Contextual targeting or contextual advertising will place your ad on a website that contains content that is relevant to your ad.
A package holiday provider will have much more success in placing their ads on websites that contain reviews or information relating to specific destinations. An automotive retailer will get much more bang for their buck by showing their ads to users who are viewing the reviews of the latest car models. As a food retailer, you’ll drive better engagement and ultimately conversions by placing your ads next to recipes, as opposed to clothes.
With so much content online and so many websites dedicated to specific niches, contextual advertising works for any business.
Engaging with the user when they are interested
The user has actively searched for, found and taken their time to view the content on the webpage. Clearly, they are interested in that topic. By showing a related ad, you’re engaging with them when they are interested in your product or service.
A more interested audience will mean better click-throughs and conversions. It really is that simple.

As an agency, what’s your approach to upselling to your existing clients? Do you provide solutions that they need based on strategic insight about their business or simply cross-sell on the existing services and products you offer? It’s surprising how many agencies fall into the latter, selling services because it’s what they do.
