The new Google Tax : Addict Mobile’s solution

Published on 8 June 2021 | Categorized in

Since November 2020, Google decided to expand surchargers on digital services to advertisers in specific countries. 

 

This new Google Tax is already active for campaigns in the UK, Austria or Turkey since November 2020. It has been applied since May 2021 to two other European countries: France and Spain.

 

The rates applied for the campaigns are the following: 

 

 

 

How are advertisers impacted by the Google Tax?

 

Concretely, this means that every advertiser will now see a surcharge added on his monthly Google bill if he broadcasts in Austria, Spain, France, the United Kingdom or Turkey. This is something that some advertisers have observed with Austria, Turkey and the UK already involved since last November. The application of this Google Tax therefore implies higher media spending of 2% or 5% in these countries and therefore an increase of the CPI/ CPA.

 

It is important to note that this surcharge is not applied directly on the Google interface but only on the month end billing, which hinders the reading of performances in order to properly evaluate its media mix.

     

The Addict Mobile solution

 

In order to give our customers a clear vision of the results, Addict Mobile integrated this Google Tax in its Dashboard. Starting from May 2021 the dashboard offers KPIs that integrate this tax and give the best visibility on the performance of the campaigns. So, your CPI, CPA or ROAS integrate this surplus spending.

 

The induced cost of this Google Tax is calculated in real time according to the amounts invested and the different rates applied to the countries concerned. This ensures a match between month-end billing and daily expenses displayed on the Dashboard. Thus, each customer has an exact vision of the budget spent and the evolution of his KPIs without being surprised at the end of the month by additional costs that would make the campaigns unprofitable.

How do you achieve this goal? Here are our creative best practices:     Personalize the message according to the various targets     – The creatives must be tailored to each type of target audience.   – This is even more important as the arrival of iOS 14 has restricted targeting options. The creative is thus a different way of targeting.   – It is therefore crucial to understand your users’ motivations, needs and centers of interest. But also their fears, what stops them, what will make them hesitate to click.   – This reflection on users and the levers to make them move on to action must be conducted upstream in order to brief the creative teams in a relevant fashion and produce effective creatives without losing time.   – Be open to all types of tests, even the most daring, as no-one knows what may be effective and catchy.   For the Cityscoot campaign, personalization of creatives allowed for procuring a CPA => 30% above average.       For […]
