How to set up text-based ProductAds

ProductAds enable your store to automatically create text-based ads on Google for each of your products.

Pointy then targets these ads at people who are searching online for these products, which can help them to find your store.

How it works

Pointy creates an ad for every product you have in stock.

These ads are customized based on what the user is searching for and displays your product name, store name, location name, phone number.

Pointy then targets these ads at people who are searching for a product within a specified distance from your store.

By running ProductAds, we help you attract relevant people nearby, targeting them when they're searching online for a product you stock.

Once they see these ads, they can be directed to call or get directions to your store.

How to use ProductAds

You can launch ProductAds for your store by signing into your Pointy Page and clicking "ProductAds" on the left hand side menu.

 Running these ads is a two-step process. From the ProductAds settings, set your budget and location:


Once set, click on Start Ads below the map. Your ads will start running and you can track their performance in the weekly reports we send or on your ProductAds dashboard.

You can turn the ads on or off whenever you like from the settings page.

If you're not a Pointy retailer and you're interested in using Local Inventory Ads or text-based ProductAds for your store, Get Started.
