Peculiarities of contextual advertising Google Ads in Slovakia

When setting up an advertising campaign in Slovakia, you should take into account the key features of doing business in the country, as well as your target audience, in order to make your online marketing activities as effective as possible.

The largest European river, the Danube, flows through the country, connecting Ukraine, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria, Romania, Germany, Moldova and the Balkan countries.

Therefore, the eCommerce area is one of the priorities for setting up Google advertising in Slovakia.

Behavior of the target audience

There are many industries in the country, including large automobile plants. Production shops and factories are usually located far from big cities.

Consequently, commuting is widespread among workers, when a person is in Bratislava in the morning, and during the day in a factory in the suburbs. This should be taken into account when determining the structure of an advertising campaign, as well as geographic and time targeting.

Features of remarketing campaigns

Because a country is visited by numerous tourists every day, when setting up remarketing, it is important to consider how long these people will stay in the country, how many times they will visit our site during this time, and at what stages of the sales funnel it makes sense to launch a remarketing campaign.

To do this, PPC agency specialists must record key indicators for analysis at control points (price per lead, order value, returns and complaints). Analytics should be carried out in the context of certain categories of goods/services.
