From the perspective of marketing model, Conversion Lookalike Audience makes you  accurately target on users who are interested in your products. Marketers used to test performance between Audiences by the results of brand market research or by segment market strategies. Then, they would put more budget on ads which perform better among Audiences to strengthen ads targeting. However, this way would be restricted by original Audience settings since this group of Audience might have been targeted by too much similar ads and already wearied of ads. With the help of Conversion Lookalike Audience, advertisers and marketers can stop be anxious, for Conversion Lookalike Audience isn’t working by targeting on same group of Audiences, but by finding possibly interested users when broadening Audience. Conversion Lookalike Audience not only increases ads Conversions, but also prevent ads from the under-delivery problem caused by inappropriate targeting strategies.

     3.Case Studies

In purpose of helping readers to realize usage and using timing of Conversion Lookalike Audience, adHub practices a test, running 3 ads of same products from same online shopping website but marketing on different Audiences, which are audience excluding fans, Conversion Lookalike Audience, and Website Custom Audience. Conversion Lookalike Audience is based on similar products, well-performed ads; Website Custom Audience is based on users who ever browsed the product page. These 3 ads have same running schedule, creatives, copy , bidding type, and all of them are set to optimize website conversion to promote ads ROI.

Analyzing the Performance picture shows above, first we’ll find results of ads cost-effectiveness fit to the concept of Targeting Marketing. Since Website Custom Audience is a group of users who have browsed the shopping website, they belong to “Consideration” stage in marketing funnel, thus it is quite reasonable that ad of Website Custom Audience get the highest cost-effectiveness. Second of all, Conversion Lookalike Audience is closer to the stage of “Purchase” so it gains better cost-effectiveness than audience excluding fans. In the diagram of Average Buying Times, we find not much difference between Conversion Lookalike Audience and Website Custom Audience; while performance of audience excluding fans falls behind.

As the part of ads Reach, obviously Website Custom Audience reaches the least, while Conversion Lookalike Audience and audience excluding fans perform much alike. To sum up, targeting on Conversion Lookalike Audience is a fairly appropriate way to gain Audience with both quality and quantity. When paying attention to see ads CTR Link, Conversion Lookalike Audience outstands Website Custom Audience, shows that these audiences are indeed interested in relational products. Although clicking into product page doesn’t mean purchasing, users do consider to buy! Furthermore, this also increases the next population of Conversion Lookalike Audience.
