For example: per marketing channel, campaign or even per targeting setting. A clear example is branded search. Customers who search for your brand have a higher purchase intent. There is a good chance that this group will also buy a product from you without your Google Ads ad. For this you would like to make a correction in the bids that you give for these advertisements. Impression channels also have a lower incremental value. Adchieve indicates that at large retailers the incremental value of display retargeting is between 3 and 7 percent. Many customers would therefore have already purchased your product without you showing them an advertisement. This value shows marketers a fair picture of the added value per marketing message.
How do you measure this value? There are several ways you can measure incremental value. It always comes down to an experiment. In the control group you run your campaign, in your test group you don't show anything. The difference between these two fax number list groups is the conversion uplift . The value of these conversions is the incremental value. If the groups measure an equal number of conversions, or if the test group (where you don't show ad) measures more conversions, the campaign has no incremental value. In this visualization, the test group has 25% incremental value.
In this visualization, the test group has 25% incremental value. Most marketing platforms have tools available that can measure conversion lifts. You can do this, for example, in Google Ads, Facebook or DV360. These methods often use ghost bids . Bids that aren't actually placed, but that do track how many conversions are measured. The ad will then not be displayed. This way you can measure exactly how many customers were converted without an ad. The difference between these two groups is the conversion uplift. The value of these conversions is the incremental value.
