Google Ad Words in Denver
For the second time this year a client has called me about their Google ad words program. Both had just started it on their own within a 30 day period, and were seeing really poor results.
Here is what they both had in common.
Google ad words really wants your ad, and keywords to match very closely. You need to do individual campaigns for each key word type. So if you sell Search Engine Optimization services, you would want to do separate campaigns on:
Search engine optimization
And use a different Ad for each with that keyword in the Ad.
Also, you have 4 choices of types of keywords. Start with exact match. That means the searcher will have to type in the exact keyword phrase you bid on, and you will get very targeted traffic, and a higher click through rate. A higher click through rate really helps with your quality score, and that affects the price you pay per click!
And…. make sure your ads are geo targeted for your city, or just the areas you service. I have seen local companies do national campaigns by mistake, using $50. daily budgets. The last thing you check before going live should be your location targeting.
There are many other things to pay attention to. But I would recommend you have a company that does pay per click at least set up your campaign. You don’t have to have them run it (Frankly, that’s the easy part after the set up) but having them set it up will save you a ton of time, and get the ad words campaign started correctly.
