Hi Partha,

If you want to run ads for conversion, you can go for Google Shopping Ads & dynamic remarketing ads in display. Also Dynamic search ads can also help here.

Hi Partha


The first step is to really figure out your target audience, where you would like to be found and who you wish to reach and when. 


Then, decide a budget and how much you are willing to pay out in terms of advertising and your costs in order to return a profitable ROI. 


Once you have all this, decide your ad format, different networks have different bidding structures in place and target different areas of results and web locations so take a look at these also.


What campaign is right for you -


If you want to go down the Shopping route, then you are required to submit a datafeed containing all your products (or subsection you wish to advertise)

It's a very generic question but the answer is definitely not one liner Smiley Happy


To follow with Tom's excellent reply above, it all depends upon your marketing objectives what you really want to accomplish when you talk about running ads on Google AdWords.


You can get started ASAP, but before that you should have a clear vision of all minute things and a Plan of what all you want to achieve like budget, target audiences, aim is more sales and does it include Branding too, etc...


I would suggest you to first go through the basics like how you should structure your AdWords account :
