Peculiarities of setting up contextual advertising in Norway

Since Norway is a country with a small population, companies that do business here tend to enter the global market or at least work for all the Scandinavian countries Denmark (5.8 million people), Sweden (10.3 million people), Norway (5.4 million people), and add Finland (5.5 million people) to them. Thus, the launched project for a total audience of 27 million people with GDP per capita from 50 thousand to 80 thousand dollars becomes very attractive and can be competitive in other countries.

When launching Google Ads in Norway, it is important to consider that the country is very stretched from north to south. The north has a colder climate (permafrost lies there). In the south, the weather tends to change depending on the season. Due to this, the demand for goods and services also changes throughout the year.

Since the population of cities is small relative to other European countries, daily commuting in cities is present, but it is not as pronounced as in other European countries. When setting up Google advertising for clients, we first ask the business to describe 2-3 portraits of the target audience. This allows you to set up ads at all stages of the sales funnel.

Depending on the chosen strategy, we connect a search, banner, shopping campaign or YouTube advertising. Since traffic from Google AdWords is expensive in this country, a prerequisite is to connect a remarketing campaign to those customers who visited the site but did not make a purchase. The goal in this case is to get the maximum number of sales not only from hot traffic, but also to increase the number of buyers among a similar audience.
