PPC used to be a ‘nice to have’ element of many Digital Marketing strategies, but it is fast becoming a ‘need to have’ as the Digital Marketing landscape becomes more volatile. Can your business afford to ignore PPC in your Digital Marketing strategy?
Today I presented at On The Edge Bristol on the subject of Remarketing in 2014. A lot has changed with AdWords in recent years, especially the moving focus away from keywords and towards marketing to specific people and audiences. Below I’ve compiled all you need to know to get started with Remarketing and why it’s a key part of any paid search strategy.
Imagine if you could tailor your search campaigns to bid more (or less) for people who have already visited a particular page on your website? Or only target search campaigns to users who have already visited your site and who are searching with the keywords you are targeting? Remarketing Lists for Search Ads (RLSAs) make this possible.
If you’re an ecommerce retailer and you aren’t already using Product Listing Ads, now is the time to start! Advertisers increased spend on PLAs by almost 300% in 2013, and this growth is not set to slow down any time soon!
When Google launched AdWords Enhanced Campaigns they gave us a range of new ways to target users by device, time and location. In fact, their new targeting features place less emphasis on the keyword and more focus on the audience.
Today I gave a presentation on Paid Search Reporting and Analytics. This post covers everything that I spoke about including links to Custom Reports, Analytics Dashboards and Whitepapers.
If you aren’t already using scripts on your AdWords account, you probably should be. Not only could they save you a wedge of time, increase accuracy and provide an easy way to create reports, they can be tailored to report on almost any aspect of your AdWords account.
Although they may seem like mortal enemies SEO and PPC can actually complement each other in many ways. For example those working on SEO can use AdWords to gain valuable keyword data, whilst those with PPC can use SEO traffic to build up credible remarketing lists. And that’s just for starters.
Taking on a new PPC account can be daunting when you can see that there’s lots to be improved on. It’s great that you know you can make a difference and improve the account, but you might find yourself wondering where to start!
A PPC audit is a great way to start any PPC project, as it will help you clearly identify the areas that need improving, so you can prioritise them and work through them in manageable chunks.
