Context Marketing: How Google Failed

Do you still remember when Google ads, formerly called  Adwords, showed their ads on the right-hand side of your search results in  2016?

And do you know that these Google ads failed to drive any action by over 98 percent of the time? How is this possible despite Google ads being the perfect message at the right time to the right person?


Clearly Google had to rethink the way of doing things and had to come up with new ideas of what marketing is.


The question for you or your enterprise is where do you need to be to drive consumer actions?


Rethink your marketing campaigns may that be PR, Out of home advertising, social media or digital. Don’t continue to rely on what used to work and start understanding one very important change.

The consumers don’t listen to the advertisement anymore. Over 600 million people today use ad-blocking software.


Mathew Sweezy’s research in his book called The Context Marketing Revolution explains key traits of high -performing marketing organizations. Everything those companies did from their metrics, tactics, roles and business goals, traced back to the consumer experiences they created.
And by the way, today you see the Google ads on the top or at the bottom of your search results page.


Hopefully, this video is valuable for you and as always don’t be shy and reach out to me to discuss your marketing challenges.

But remember, as long as the Matterhorn stands, everything is going to be alright.
