Make Smart Shopping Campaigns Profitable for Your Business
If you’re advertising on Google Shopping, you’re either actively running or have considered running Smart Shopping campaigns. The campaigns are growing rapidly in popularity, and at first glance it’s easy to see why. Google bills Smart Shopping as a simple, hands-off way to advertise your products.
