For a ppc specialist this is a must-read. Most prominent ppc news from Marketing Live 2019 in one article. Share if you liked it!
Officially out of beta and available for all advertisers. From current testing I really don’t see it as a performance campaign, since ROAS is about as low as that of non-remarketing display campaigns.
Plan your route, buy tickets, book hotels – all in one place.
Improvements to smart bidding
Showcase ads will be more prominent
Roll out of local campaigns
A local campaign promotes your physical store across Search, Display, Maps, and YouTube in a format similar to responsive ads.

Simplifying custom affinity and intent audiences
Audience expansion tool roll out
A merge of similar audience and look-alike from Facebook, audience expansion tool is officially available for all advertisers. So far I gotta say I wasn’t happy with its performance except for dedicated Gmail campaigns, but hope that with an official launch there’d be some twicks to make it work.
