How to Create an Ad Offering a ''free download'

Follower ✭ ☆ ☆

Hey Everyone!

 

Has anyone had any experience creating ad's that offer a free download?

(PDF brochure is the download material).

 

I'm curious to know if Google has a setting for this (i.e. ad format type for this specific type of offer - user clicks - form pops up add in details - they complete - download begins). 

 

Background to this: I'm working with a software company who have a guide on 'How to Spot Malware/Spam'. 

We'd like to make this guide downloadable as an offer for clicking on our ad and submitting their details. 

 

Look forward to any tips or advice Smiley Happy

Hi Michael,

 

The most common way would to have a landing page that is part of a proper website (that will legitimise you to the searcher before they provide their details), with a short form (name & email address, of just email address will convert best) and they receive a link to the PDF via an autoresponder email.

 

If you want people to request the download directly from an ad, that isn't something that AdWords offers.

 

A list of current ad types is here:
