What does GSP mean?
GSP stands for Gmail Sponsored Promotions. They can appear in your personal Gmail mailbox. From a technical point of view, these ads are composed of 2 elements: a teaser and the main ad.
What is a teaser in GSP?
You will find below an example.
As you can see, the teaser is located in the Promotion tab. The teaser is situated at the top of the emails and can contain only 25 characters for the headline and 100 characters for the description.
An additional picture can be display as well as the name of the company.
Here the logo of the company has been inserted.
What ads can be displayed in GSP?
Once the user clicks on the teaser, the main ad is displayed (also called expanded ad). The expanded ad can be a picture, an embedded video, a form, a text or even a click to call phone number.
What should I know before starting GSP campaigns?
- GSP campaigns are CPC campaigns. The ad cost is based on clicks on the teaser only.
- To set up a GSP campaign you will need to call a Google rep and ask for the activation
- Analyzes that I run, shows that ads with a picture of the product proposed in the teaser perform better than pictures of the logo of the company
- GSP targeting works just like Google Display Network.
