Types of Advertisements on Walmart
Though Walmart.com provides limited ad types, several valuable sponsored products, and online display ad options enhance your product’s visibility. The display ads drive online sales by popping up when relevant searches are made, providing shoppers enticing details about a particular product while they shop online.
The different types of Walmart Advertisements are:
Walmart Sponsored Products
- Search In-Grid Results: These ads appear within the first three search results pages and are CPC ads. They drive traffic to relevant product detail pages of Walmart. For such advertisements, expenditure controls are in the hands of advertisers as they set the budget and bids and pay only when a consumer clicks upon an ad. The Search In-Grid Results ads are available for both manual and automated campaigns. For ad eligibility, the store and products you wish to advertise should surface organically within the first 128 search result positions as these types of ads heavily rely on relevance.
- Carousel Ads: They appear in various locations across Walmart.com. Displayed from the homepage to the product page, all carousels are available for automated campaigns, while manual campaigns only come with the search carousel. Carousel ads act as an all-rounder for the success of your Walmart advertising campaign irrespective of whether your goal is to maintain your existing visibility, grab new customers, or more.
Some of the most popular Walmart Carousel ad placements are:
- Search results
- Category pages
