3.7 billion people around the world are online. For businesses big and small, there’s the opportunity to reach new customers across the globe through Google Ads.

What Is Google Ads?

Google Ads is a pay-per-click (PPC) advertising platform. Through Google Ads, you can create online ads to reach members of your target audience at the exact moment when they’re interested in the products and services that you offer.

It’s a product you can use to promote your business, help sell products or services, boost awareness and increase traffic to your website or landing page.

Google Market Finder

What is Google Market Finder?

It’s a free service, which can be used in collaboration with a Google Ads account, to help businesses spot new global markets, estimate likely demand and engage new people.

Its main purpose is to help businesses who are looking to expand abroad and offer their products and services to members of their target audience across the world.

One of the biggest challenges’ businesses must overcome when expanding to new countries is deciding which market they will be able to engage and how they can get the best return on investment. Reaching new global markets can run the risk of language barriers, localisation requirements and effective communication.

How Does Market Finder Work?

Market Finder is split into 3 stages:

  1. 1. Finding new opportunities
  2. 2. Planning operations
  3. 3. Marketing your business

To use the tool, businesses are asked to insert a URL to their website and Google pulls the category of the product or service that they offer. Based on the category, Market Finder will recommend markets based on the data from the website.

Then, the business can save up to 3 of Google’s suggested markets to put into a shortlist, which can be found through their Market Finder account.  The suggested markets are based on a number of factors, including:

  • – Volume of good searches per product / service
  • – Average cost-per-click (CPC) for keywords
  • – Annual gross domestic products (GDP) growth in each economy
