How it works
When you create a Performance Max campaign for store goals, you'll need to define the store locations you want to promote. You can set this by linking your Business Profile or selecting affiliate locations.
Performance Max campaigns for store goals are focused on simplicity and growing your offline business goals. You provide us with store locations, campaign budget, and ad assets. Using these inputs, Google AI optimizes bids, ad placements, and asset combinations. The campaign aims to maximize your in-store value and conversions (using store visits, store sales, call clicks, or direction clicks) and promote your locations across Google properties and networks.
Performance Max campaigns for store goals also use radius targeting for the Business Profile and affiliate local assets (ALA) locations. The radius can vary depending on the targeted locations and a user’s preference of travel distance to them. Other factors that determine targeted radius include: vertical, population density, and existence of competitors.
