Competing against the big players

Hi,

 

So I'm currently working with a client who is set to launch a mobile app which will help trades people with invoices and quotes.

 

My problem is:

 

- Competition is high

- CPC. for relevant keywords is expensive

 

What strategy would you recommend adopting to reach people who are keen to download this app?

 

Maybe a good start would be if anyone has any recommendations on the type of campaign? e.g. Display, search or remarketing?

 

There is definitely a use for this mobile app, it's just competition is tough.

 

Thanks for your help.

You can actually setup a Mobile App Install Campaign. This would probably be best if your objective is app installs.. You can learn more about it here: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/6309936?hl=en

Thanks @David Kyle Would you recommend using display rather than search, even if you know that people are searching for your keywords?

 

That's what I was trying to clarify with this post. I understand you said that display is good for brand awareness, but maybe I should have clarified that the objective is more about driving people to download the app.

 

Hope that makes sense? Thanks for your help
