Google Ads Accounts Need a Regular Overhaul

We Put Google Ads to Work for You!
We Put Google Ads to Work for You!

As a Google Partner and experienced Google Ads Account Manager, I have found that a yearly overhaul of your Google Ads programs helps to keep them operating at peak performance.

Many times a business owner has updated their website with new programs or services and has not advised us that they are doing rent to own, have dropped their minimums for free shipping, or have added a whole new service category.

During an annual overhaul or yearly check up, we review your website, running ad creatives, and review what items we are promoting and how we are promoting them in your account.

Plus, Google Ads changes ad serving, policies, extensions, and ad enhancements. Without a full review, sometimes things that should be promoted are left unadvertised simply to a lack of communication back to us, your Google Ads marketing team.

A yearly checkup assures that we are in the loop and promoting the items and services that are important to you.

If you are looking for a savvy Google Ads consultant or account manager, I invite you to find out more about us and our services. Google Ads account set up and management is our core business!

Is Your Best Google Ads Strategy No Strategy?

Our clients love our experience and savvy with Google Ads.

That’s right many advertisers’ strategy on Google Ads (previously known as AdWords), appears to be no strategy at all.

As competitive as your marketplace is, and as much as Google Ads clicks cost, I personally feel that there must be a strategy to what you promote, dollars you put toward what, and evaluation of the success or lack thereof of your advertising as a part of your overall business profitability.

It all starts first with knowing what you can afford and what your costs are to supply the product you are selling to the purchaser. I feel that the time a business owner takes to evaluate what they can afford and the monetary investment they want to make in Google Ads clicks and our services is strategic to business growth.

As a professional Google Ads manager, I have found that results are much better for clients who have a degree of preparation and have done business analysis. The guidance that they give to me at account set up on their average sale, lifetime value of a client, desired Return on Ad Spend (ROAS) is incredibly helpful and allows me to have a better understanding of their requirements for success in a Google Ads account.

When you start advertising on Google Ads, how do you determine your starting budget?

There is no mystery to deciding your budget for Google Ads. I use the Keyword Planner to determine the best budget for starting out. Here are my tips.

  1. Create a list of 10 two to three word phrases that you feel will help drive qualified traffic.
  2. Go to your Google Ads account or ask your Google Ads consultant to run the numbers for you, but putting each keyword in the Google Keyword Planner to check for traffic, competition, and typical bids.
  3. Plan on these potential bids being about 20% lower than the real auction for clicks when your account is set up.
  4. Take the average of these ten keyword’s click costs and then decide how many clicks you would like to have a day before your ads stop showing.
  5. Look at the number generated in step 4 and determine if you can realistically live with this number. Never get over your head in regards to a budget that is way beyond your means. It is not typical to get leads in Google Ads the day ads serve. For some account it can take as long as three weeks for optimization to start to see the first lead conversion.
  6. Remember a lead conversion or beneficial action you are recording as a conversion is not always a sale. Sometimes it is just the first step in the sales process.
  7. Understand that it takes time for a Google Ads account to become profitable. Google Ads is a dynamic auction with bids changing for each query and many factors determining if your ads show or not.
  8. Work with a professional Google Ads account manager or consultant like McCord Web Services to get the most out of Google Ads.
