Google Performance Max Advertising:
How Growing Brands are Leveraging Google’s 72 MILLION data points to acquire more customers and grow their ROAS this year
Does this Sound Familiar?
Facebook (Meta) used to work really well, but now results are stalling and CPAs are rising.
If you’re like many businesses, Facebook advertising just isn’t as easy or as affordable as it used to be. Costs are rising and results are tanking. You need a fresh injection of results to keep the machine running. You’ve probably heard about what Google can do, but don’t yet have an expert team who can help you implement campaigns.
You’ve tried setting up Google ads in-house, but ads keep getting rejected or you aren’t getting the results you want.
Kudos to you for trying to launch Google in-house. But now you need expert help in configuring your campaigns and tracking correctly and scaling using Google’s most powerful customer acquisition tool: Performance Max.
You want a truly omnichannel approach across ad platforms, but keeping up with it all is a lot for your team to handle.
Keeping up with all of the platforms – Google, FB Meta, Instagram, TikTok – and all the settings, ad specifications, and rules is a lot for your team to handle, but you can’t risk handing your campaigns off to just anyone. You need an experienced team you can trust to take the reigns and free your time to focus on other things.
You KNOW you could be getting more sales from cold traffic, but aren’t sure the best path forward.
You already know that putting all your eggs in one platform is detrimental to your business. But which platform should you add and how do you transition without negatively impacting your existing CPAs and ROAS?
Just because you can manage your ads, doesn’t mean you should.
For over 15 years, Tier 11 has been trusted by industry-leading brands to execute complex Facebook, Instagram, and Google Search campaigns. Now, we’re offering Google Performance Max to qualified brands who are ready to expand into this powerful new campaign option.

A Powerful Growth Combination
When you choose Tier 11 to scale your Google and Performance Max campaigns, you get more than just media buying. You also unlock our entire Customer Acquisition Amplification™ (CaAMP™) Growth Ecosystem to help you scale more effectively on any platform.
Your Google and Performance Max project includes our proven Creative Lab™ Deep Dive Research and avatar development, our CaAMP™ Ad Framework for coming up with touchpoint-appropriate ad copy and creative, and our Kaizen Kreative™ ad testing and optimization process.
Google Performance Max handles the technical part of showing the right ad to the right person at the right time in the right place. CaAMP™ is how we develop those “right ads” so you get more sales and more revenue.
How CaAMP™ + Google Performance Max Grows Your Business
Google Performance Max Leverages 72 MILLION Points of User Data for Higher ROAS
Google is 1300X smarter than Facebook was at its height because it’s pulling from your activity across the entire internet: search, mail, internet activity, purchases, play store, and more.
Google Performance Max Delivers Your Ads Where Your Customers Are
Gone are the days where we’re manually targeting customers hoping we picked the right placements. Thanks to Google Performance Max’s insanely powerful algorithms and 72 MILLION data points and robust feedback loops, your ads will get in front of the right audience at the right time.
Google Performance Max Unlocks Customer Insights for Better Decision-making
One amazing feature of Performance Max is the audience insights it provides. After you launch campaigns and begin getting feedback loops, Google will start to give you insights you can act on. For example, one client had a brand where we learned that people interested in camping and fishing were potential customers. Neither we nor the customer had this interest on our radar, but Google did! With these clear insights, we were able to create fresh creatives and improve results.
Google Performance Max Expands Your Digital Reach with Creatives You’re Already Using
What worked on Facebook is now working on Google Performance Max. In many cases, you can re-use many of the creative assets you already have and leverage them on Google’s powerful platform and new campaign option to enhance your results.
Google Performance Max Enhances Your Existing Traffic Results
Google Ads and Performance Max work well when combined with Facebook, TikTok, and Instagram, because the combination creates even more powerful feedback loops for Google to leverage than if you tried these non-Google platforms by themselves.

Frequently Asked Questions
Google is NOT just a search engine: it knows what you don’t know, it knows the words you’re using, (gmail is the largest free email provider on the planet), Google knows all websites you’ve even been to (Google Analytics is on 99% of all front facing websites), what emails you’re opening in Google Mail, what searches you’re making, and what you’re buying. Google is “the internet,” whereas Facebook is merely “an app on your phone.”
To put it in perspective:
Amazon tracks 67 different data points on every single search a customer performs. For each order, they follow 2,000 real-time data points on every order. In other words, Amazon knows what we’ve bought and what we’re likely to buy next and the content we watch, and our listening choices.
Facebook knows what we ‘like.’ By analyzing just 68 of our Facebook ‘ likes’, researchers can predict our skin color, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, political leaning, intelligence, and even our alcohol, cigarettes, and drug use… based on 55,000 data points.
Apple knows anything its users do that needs computing or an internet connection.
On the other hand, with its 72,000,000 (seventy two million) data points on each user, Google knows what you’ll buy before you buy it.
Stated differently, Google knows everything. About everybody. Everywhere.
Google is 1300X SMARTER than Facebook, and Performance Max helps you reach your customers using data points you can’t manually access. . . but which Google leverages every day.

Most Google agencies are comfortable with keywords and manual targeting, but aren’t great at designing creative assets for ads. And Performance Max needs a lot of creative: 15 images, 5 videos, 5 long headlines, 5 short headlines, and 5 descriptions just to get started. At Tier 11, we specialize in creative ad campaigns because we’ve had 15 years of experience with Facebook (Meta), a very creative-heavy platform. So we know what it takes to design converting creative campaigns.
Performance Max campaigns can take at least 6 weeks to exit the learning phase, although many clients begin seeing positive results before that time.
YES! In fact, we’ve found that brands who run both Facebook and Google ads see BETTER results with higher ROAS than brands who don’t use multiple ad platforms.
In our experience, you can start seeing results with Google and Performance Max for as little as $2,000 per month in ad spend.
