One of the best ways to start losing money with your ad campaigns is to not focus on converting your audience and making sure everyone is viewing your landing pages in the same way. Have you ever taken the time to see how your web site or landing pages might look if you were browsing from another country? It’s a question that is occasionally brought up, but many people are still clueless on how to do this or what can be done to fix it. It doesn’t matter if you are focusing your efforts on pay per click advertising or media buying, how others see your web site and knowing what competitors are in your target markets outside of the US is key to being the best in your niche market.

Fortunately for times like these there are useful tools that can give marketers an edge to see what their content looks like around the world. The tool we are referring to is called GeoEdge, which caters to publisher, media buyers and advertisers who want to keep an eye on their display advertising.
