Does Google Ads Work for Print on Demand?

Over the years that we’ve been working with Google Ads, we have managed to take businesses from every sort of industry to the absolute heights of success thanks to the power of Google paid advertising.

That’s why we believe that print on demand Google Ads is an excellent marketing solution for your business. In the next section, we’ll explain a little further about how Google Ads can be a perfect fit for your business.

However, before we delve into that, there’s a matter that we first need to address, and that’s whether or not you can actually use Google Ads for a POD business. Technically, there is nothing at all stopping you from using Google Ads for a print on demand business—at least, there is nothing in the regulations that say so anyway.

However, there are regulations that prohibit you from promoting products that are not currently stocked, or if you’re somehow or other incapable of providing the advertised product. If there is some form of delay in providing the products, Google might ban your account for that reason.

However, if you provide your products in the advertised times, we’re sure that there won’t be any problems!

Why Google Ads Is the Perfect Match for Your Print-on-Demand Business

In the ever-evolving world of e-commerce, organic reach can feel like a fickle friend. You pour your heart into creating unique designs, but where’s the audience? Here’s where Google Ads swoops in as the ultimate wingman for print-on-demand (POD) businesses.

Firstly, we’ve found that no matter what industry you operate in, Google Ads is 100% worth the investment because it propels your business to new heights of brand awareness. This is thanks to the particular benefits that this tool provides, which we’ll look at closely here.

A great benefit that’s worth mentioning first is that Google Ads lets you target laser-focused audiences who are actively searching for products that you offer. So, if a customer types in “funny cat t-shirts” and your ad featuring hilarious cat design pops up, then you might have gotten yourself your next sale.

But targeted reach is just the tip of the iceberg: Google Ads is a treasure trove of data, allowing you to track every click, conversion, and the return on your investment (ROI) with pinpoint accuracy. This means that with Google Ads, you can see exactly what’s working and what’s not, empowering you to refine your strategies for maximum impact.

Another great benefit that we cannot forget to mention is that Google Ads is incredibly scalable. The tool gives us a lot of budgetary control, so we can tailor your paid ads strategy according to your current financial constraints. Eventually we can gradually increase your budget, giving you even more successes in the process. This flexibility makes Google Ads perfect for POD businesses of all sizes, from passionate one-person operations to established design powerhouses.

But it’s not just about sales figures: as we’ve said, Google Ads is a powerful tool for building brand awareness. By consistently appearing in targeted searches, you’ll start to establish yourself as a leader in the print on demand market. Over time, potential customers will begin to recognize your brand name, fostering trust and loyalty. This brand recognition becomes a magnet, drawing in new customers who are already primed to appreciate your unique designs.

So, how does Google Ads achieve all this magic? It’s a multi-step process fueled by data and creativity. We’ll delve deeper into that in the next section, but for now, let the targeted reach, measurable results, scalability, and brand awareness of Google Ads convince you that it’s the perfect match to propel your POD business to new heights.

Deep Dive Discovery: The Blueprint for Success

Before we launch into crafting compelling ads, we embark on a collaborative discovery process. This isn’t a quick dip in the shallows; it’s a deep dive into the core of your business. We’ll work together to conduct a comprehensive analysis that uncovers your unique strengths, target audience demographics, and the competitive landscape you navigate.

Here’s what this deep dive entails:

  • Unveiling Your Business DNA: We’ll delve into your brand identity, product offerings, and overall vision. What makes your POD business stand out? What unique design niches do you occupy? Understanding your brand’s essence allows us to craft messaging that resonates with your ideal customer.

  • Target Audience Spotlight: Who is your dream customer? We’ll leverage audience insights tools to create a detailed profile, encompassing demographics, interests, online behavior, and even the specific search terms they’re likely to use. The more we know about your target audience, the more precisely we can tailor our ads to grab their attention.

  • Competitive Intelligence: Knowledge is power, especially when it comes to your competitors. We’ll analyze their advertising strategies, identify their strengths and weaknesses, and use that knowledge to craft campaigns that set you apart. By understanding the competitive landscape, we can ensure your ads rise above the noise and capture the attention of potential customers.

This deep dive discovery phase is the foundation upon which we build successful Google Ads campaigns. The insights gleaned here will guide every step of the process, from crafting targeted keywords to developing persuasive ad copy. It’s all about ensuring your POD business shines brightly in the vast online marketplace.

Keyword Magic: Unlocking the Search Intent

Keywords are the golden threads that connect potential customers to your POD business. That’s why we don’t just research keywords; we delve into the realm of keyword magic. This meticulous process involves a deep understanding of search intent, the underlying reason behind a user’s search query.

Here’s how we weave our keyword magic:

  • Uncovering Search Intent: We go beyond basic keyword research and delve into the “why” behind user searches. Are they simply browsing (“cat t-shirts”) or are they ready to buy (“buy funny cat t-shirt”)? Identifying search intent allows us to target keywords that indicate a high likelihood of conversion.

  • Keyword Variety is Key: We don’t put all our eggs in one basket. We’ll create a comprehensive list of keywords that encompasses broad search terms, mid-tail keywords with more specific intent, and long-tail keywords that target highly motivated buyers searching for exactly what you offer (“funny cat t-shirt for birthday gift”). This variety ensures your ads appear throughout the entire purchase journey.

  • Staying Relevant, Always: The online landscape is constantly evolving, and so are search trends. We’ll use advanced keyword research tools to stay ahead of the curve, identifying new and relevant keywords that keep your ads at the forefront of user searches.

  • Competitor Keyword Insights: We’ll analyze the keywords your competitors are using, but we won’t stop there. We’ll also identify gaps in their strategy, uncovering high-performing, underutilized keywords that can give your POD business a significant edge.

By wielding the power of keyword magic, we ensure your ads resonate with your ideal customers at precisely the moment they’re searching for products like yours. This targeted approach drives qualified traffic to your website, translating into more sales and a thriving POD business.

Compelling Ad Creation: The Art of the Click

Imagine a captivating billboard in Times Square, but instead of reaching a fleeting audience, it targets exactly the right person at the right moment. That’s the power of crafting compelling Google Ads. We don’t just write ad copy; we weave narratives that entice, intrigue, and ultimately drive clicks.

Here’s the magic behind our compelling ad creation:

  • Headlines that Hook: The headline is your prime real estate, and we’ll use it wisely. We’ll craft short, punchy headlines that grab attention, showcase your unique selling proposition (USP), and spark user curiosity. Think “Limited Edition: Hilarious Cat Tees Inside!” or “Design Your Dream: Custom T-Shirts Made Easy.”

  • Benefit-Driven Descriptions: Headlines grab attention, but descriptions seal the deal. We’ll craft compelling descriptions that highlight the benefits your POD offerings provide. Instead of simply listing features, we’ll focus on how your products solve customer problems or add value to their lives.

  • A/B Testing for Optimization: We don’t settle for “good enough.” We use A/B testing to compare different ad variations and see which ones resonate best with your target audience. This data-driven approach ensures your ads are constantly optimized for maximum click-through rates (CTR).

  • Call to Action (CTA) Clarity: A clear and concise call to action (CTA) tells users exactly what you want them to do – visit your website, shop now, or redeem a special offer. We’ll craft CTAs that are action-oriented and seamlessly integrated into the overall ad narrative.

By weaving these elements together, we create compelling Google Ads that act as irresistible magnets, drawing your ideal customers towards your unique POD offerings. It’s the art of the click, and it’s a skill we’ve perfected to help your POD business flourish.

Remarketing Magic: The Second Chance to Capture Conversions

Not every website visitor converts on the first click, and that’s perfectly normal. But what if you could reconnect with those interested individuals and remind them about your amazing POD offerings? That’s the power of remarketing magic. We’ll leverage this powerful tool to keep your brand top-of-mind and capture those potential customers who haven’t converted yet.

Think of remarketing as a friendly nudge, a way to jog a website visitor’s memory and reignite their interest in your products. Here’s how we’ll weave remarketing magic to benefit your POD business:

  • Retargeting Website Visitors: We’ll create targeted remarketing campaigns that reach website visitors who have interacted with your brand in specific ways. This could involve visitors who browsed a particular product category, added items to their cart without completing the purchase, or even those who simply visited your homepage.

  • Personalized Messaging: One-size-fits-all marketing is a thing of the past. We’ll craft personalized remarketing ads that resonate with each visitor’s specific interests and past behavior. Imagine showing someone who browsed funny cat t-shirts an ad featuring their favorite feline design – that’s the power of personalization!

  • Reignite Interest at the Right Moment: Timing is everything. We’ll use sophisticated algorithms to ensure your remarketing ads reach potential customers at the precise moment they’re most receptive. This could be a few days after they abandoned their cart or when they’re actively searching for similar products online.

  • Multiple Channels, Maximum Reach: Remarketing isn’t limited to just the Google Search Network. We’ll explore remarketing opportunities across various channels, including display networks, social media platforms, and even YouTube. This multi-channel approach ensures your brand message reaches your target audience wherever they roam online.

By wielding the power of remarketing magic, we capture the attention of those who haven’t converted yet and give them a second chance to discover the unique value your POD business offers. This strategic approach translates into more sales and a thriving customer base for your brand.

Data-Driven Optimization: The Never-Ending Pursuit of Performance

The magic of Google Ads isn’t a one-time trick; it’s a continuous process of refinement fueled by data.expand_more We don’t just launch a campaign and hope for the best; we become your data detectives, constantly monitoring performance, analyzing insights, and refining your strategies for maximum impact.

Think of it as taking a road trip across the vast landscape of online advertising. We start with a well-researched route, but the journey itself unveils valuable detours and hidden gems. Here’s how we leverage data-driven optimization to ensure your campaigns are always on the road to success:

  • Performance Monitoring Like a Hawk: We’ll keep a watchful eye on key performance indicators (KPIs) like impressions, clicks, conversions, and cost-per-acquisition (CPA). This constant monitoring allows us to identify areas that are excelling and areas that require adjustments.

  • Data Deep Dives: Data is our treasure map, and we’ll use advanced analytics tools to delve deep into user behavior and campaign performance. We’ll identify trends, uncover hidden patterns, and use these insights to refine your targeting, optimize bids, and ultimately maximize your return on ad spend (ROAS).

  • A/B Testing for Continuous Improvement: The world of online advertising is dynamic, and what works today might not work tomorrow. That’s why we’ll continuously A/B test different elements of your campaign, from ad copy variations to landing page tweaks. This ensures your campaigns constantly evolve and adapt to changing audience behaviors and market trends.

  • Transparency is Key: We believe in open communication. We’ll provide you with regular reports that showcase your campaign performance in clear, easy-to-understand language. This transparency allows you to stay informed and involved in the optimization process.

Data-driven optimization isn’t a destination; it’s a continuous journey towards peak performance. By constantly analyzing data and refining your campaigns, we ensure your POD business stays ahead of the curve and attracts a steady stream of qualified leads that convert into sales.

What Is Google Ads?

When all is said and done, we cannot expect to convince you if you have absolutely no idea what Google Ads is and how it works. It’s pretty much like trying to sell a musical instrument to someone who has never played in his life. Which is why we’re going to take this opportunity to explain a little bit more about the platform.

Firstly, it must be said that Google Ads is Google’s official paid advertising platform: in other words, it’s where marketers and other users go to pay Google directly in order for their adverts to appear across a range of properties that are either owned by Google or owned by other webmasters who have partnered up with Google.

Your ads will show up depending on the “form” of Google Ads that you’ve chosen to use for your advertising campaign. Properly as “campaign types,” these forms of Google Ads have different characteristics, benefits, drawbacks, and usefulness for your particular industry.

When it comes to print on demand paid advertising, the following campaign types are generally the most common and useful:

  • Search ads: these are the sponsored listings that you see whenever you perform a Google search. They tend to be the top results but are sometimes found lower down the search results page.

  • Display ads: these are the banner ads that you see on certain websites you visit. These websites don’t belong to Google but instead belong to other webmasters who are partnering up with Google and selling ad space through Google AdSense.

  • Video ads: these are the ads that play when you’re trying to watch a video on YouTube.

However, no matter what campaign type you choose, Google Ads will work the same way, that is, through an auction system. And by that we mean that users will actually bid on keywords depending on the maximum amount that they’re willing to pay for an interaction with a keyword.

There is a number of these kinds of “interactions,” depending on the campaign types you choose. The most common payment types that you’ll encounter are the following:

  • CPC: this stands for “cost per click,” and it’s essentially when you pay for every time a user clicks on your ads.

  • CPM: this stands for “cost per mille,” and it’s when you pay for every time your ad receives 1000 impressions, where an impression means every time your ad has been viewed.

  • CPE: this stands for “cost per engagement,” and this is when you have to pay for every time a user interacts with your ads in a particular way, depending on the kind of ad it is.

While that isn’t all there is to Google Ads, we think it’s a good overview of the platform and how it works. If you require more information, feel free to ask as many questions as you’d like whenever you decide to contact us.

Where Do Google Display Ads Appear?

We’ve already seen in the previous section that display ads appear on websites owned by webmasters that partner up with Google. The ads are generally shown either in the margins of the page, as headers or footers, or even in between the content. But is that the only place that you can see display ads?

Well, not really. There is also the chance of seeing display ads whenever you use a mobile app. These are often banner ads that appear at the bottom of your screen.

When it comes to the kind of websites display ads appear on, they are generally optimized in order to appear on websites that are relevant to the kind of adverts you’re promoting; for example, if you’re promoting gymwear, then it’s often a good idea to have your display ads appear on fitness websites.

Otherwise, display ads can be optimized in such a way to appear to users that have expressed an interest in products similar to the ones you provide through their browser history. So, your gymwear display ads can still appear to users that are interested in fitness even if they’re not on a fitness website.

What Are Google Shopping Ads?

Shopping ads are the sponsored listings that you can see either on Google Search or Google Shopping, and they are entirely product-based. In other words, rather than choosing keywords to bid on, you upload your product data to Google and your ads will be created for you based on the details provided.

So, unlike search ads, which are solely text ads, shopping ads are media-rich, featuring an image of your product, the title of your product, your store name, the price of your product, etc. However, as opposed to search ads, with shopping ads you don’t have much of a choice in how your ad will look.


How much do Google Ads cost?

As with everything in pay-per-click marketing, costs are going to differ immensely from industry to industry—and even from business to business in the same industry! And this is why it’s important to take multiple factors into consideration when calculating the costs for Google Ads.

One of the most important factors is the average CPC in your industry, which is basically the average amount of money that you can expect to pay for a click on your ads. According to data compiled by LocaliQ, the average CPC for the “Shopping, Collectibles & Gifts” industry, which is where POD falls, is $2.44.

All things considered, this isn’t an exorbitant amount at all, especially considering the costs incurred by other industries. Other factors to consider include the size of your business, how long it takes for customers to convert, and current industry trends.

Do Google display ads work for ecommerce?

Yes, of course. There is no reason to believe that display ads won’t make a difference for your ecommerce business. However, it’s important to bear in mind that display ads are better used for increasing brand awareness rather than for attracting new customers to your business by having them click on your ads. 

How can I make money with Google Ads?

Through smart paid ad campaigns that target long-tail keywords with high buyer intent, have fantastically crafted ad copy, and sends users to well-designed, relevant, and persuasive landing pages. By implementing a well-thought-out Google Ads strategy, you can easily boost your business’ revenue.
