Google Ads is launching AR Beauty Try-on, which allows beauty brands to display ads where users can try virtual makeup.
AR Beauty Try-on will be available to brands globally in a beta with YouTube Masthead and TrueView video discovery ads.
With this feature, Google says beauty brands will be able to offer “realistic, virtual product samples that work on a full range of skin tones, to YouTube’s 2 billion monthly active users.”
Ads with the new AR Beauty Try-on feature will be delivered via the YouTube Masthead or TrueView Video Discovery video ads across IOS and Android. Both ad types are displayed prominently in the YouTube home feed.
After tapping one of the ads and entering the watch page, customers can use their front-facing camera to see how the product being advertised looks on their own skin. If they like what they see, they can place an order for the product.
Google describes how NARS, a leading cosmetics company, is using AR Beauty Try-on to advertise lipstick:
“As one of the first brands to run TrueView Discovery video and Masthead ads with the Beauty Try-on feature, NARS has reached over 20 million people to-date in the US, UK, Canada and Australia who, on average, have tried on more than 2/3 of the 24 lipstick shades featured. That’s over half a million shades in total tried on to-date.”
Those who are interested in using this feature will need to contact their Google sales team directly.
Pay Per Click (or PPC advertising) is a form of paid digital marketing where advertisers pay a fee each time their ad is clicked.
The term PPC can apply to paid ads on social media networks, like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. However, today we’ll focus on Google Adwords which helps your ads stand out to search engine users, displaying them at the top and right-hand side of Google’s search engines. We’ll also explore Google Display Network which displays your ads on relevant websites your customers and prospects land on.
Google Brings Virtual Makeup Try-on to YouTube Masthead Ads How Does PPC Advertising Work?
Once you have an amazingly written ad spiel, you can bid on a series of search phrases or keywords you want your advert to appear for. What placement your ad gets depends on two things: your bid price and your quality score. Your bid price is how much each click will cost you – so if you bid €1.50 and 100 people click on your advert, it will cost you €150.
Your quality score is decided from a number of factors including: your land page copy, your click metrics, your website’s metrics, amongst others.
Sounds simple enough?
Not quite, to get great conversion rates (people actually buying/signing-up for your offerings) takes a lot more than getting people to click on a link.
