“Imagine linking pay-per-click (PPC) ad campaigns to a user’s stage in the buying cycle. If users are researching products for a future purchase, marketers should be prepared to serve informational ads.

If shoppers are headed for a brick-and-mortar store to buy, a local ad could be served to offer a logical purchase destination.”
