Unlike 08 numbers, 03 numbers cost the same to call as geographic landline numbers (starting 01 and 02), even from a mobile phone. They are also included as part of inclusive call minutes and discount schemes from all major mobile phone and landline operators.
SES London is here and we’ll be bringing you a recap of the talks we saw throughout the day. We’ll be covering talks on Twitter, Paid Media, Social Advertising, the changing face of Google and Attribution Modelling.
So let’s get started:
Running in Real-Time: Bringing Campaigns to Life by Marketing in the Moment
2007 to 2009 saw Google take full dominance in paid search and searches became standardised, so Yahoo and Google etc started offering the same services and features.
Product Listing Ads are one thing which makes search interesting again and generates a better ROI for retailers than traditional PPC
Chris predicts that bid modifiers will greatly play a part in Google’s future paid search development and suggested that you may be able to apply your own layers for bid adjustments in the future.
Kenshoo offer a feature where they automatically take your top performing PLAs and generate dynamic Facebook ads for them.
In the future keywords will continue to reduce in importance and other targeting features alongside them will become more prominent.
Speaker: Matt Ackley CMO from Marin Software
Leverage your legacy data alongside your bidding strategy (this is something Marin are focusing on at the moment).
Audience data is the next frontier in search and it’s essential that you understand it and utilise it because it will make your PPC more strategic.
Context is also going to become more integrated with search, for example integrating weather forecasts with your bidding strategy.
Ask yourself what the lifetime value of a user is when you acquire them, and consider this in your optimisation and bidding.
In the future Google will use its own data on users to bring in audience targeting and analytics into paid search in even more detail than it currently is, for example you might see the function for bid adjustments for users with different incomes, users with or without children etc
Use bid multipliers together to target different groups of your customer, for example users on mobile in the early evening could be commuters and they might be valuable to you.
Google AdWords new features will be based around the enhanced campaigns way of thinking where context is just as important as keywords and other targeting.
Separate your most important keywords into their own ad groups, so you can have control over your bid modifiers at ad group level.
Analyse the groups of people you target and think about how your bid adjustments can be tailored to them.
Use contexts together to make decisions about your audience, for example if users are searching for your brand and are near your store location then you’d land them on a different page than if they were abroad but looking at your service

“Holidays are coming, holidays are coming…” It’s official; Christmas is fast approaching and even if you’re not excited about the holidays just yet, the big brands have been preparing for this moment for months. The festive season is an incredibly important time for brands, both big and small, as are the many other holidays and international events […]
The travel industry makes up a large percentage of Google’s revenue. Based on a report published back in 2011, travel and tourism is the third highest spending industry when it comes to AdWords. I doubt this has changed a great deal since then.
Whether you’re working in-house or agency side, putting together a cohesive team is paramount to the success of any online campaign. If you stop and think about all the different marketing disciplines and channels, your campaign may transcend across two, three or ten different teams, depending on goals and budget. With this in mind, are […]
Writing blog posts is easy. Yeah I said it. Anyone can grab a keyboard and begin typing, and a couple of hundred words later they’d probably have an almost–legible piece of content. However, if it doesn’t have a catchy title, chances are no one’s even going to glance at it, let alone read through it. […]
Link building today means something very different to a few years back. There was a time when buying hundreds or thousands of links from spammy link directories would deliver results in the form of search engine rankings. Not any more. Link building in the modern world of SEO is much more quality over quantity, and […]
When Product Listing Ads (PLAs) first arrived on the AdWords PPC scene, many retailers were content with simply setting them up and letting them run. If this is still your outlook then it might be time to take a new approach because times are changing!
Last year in 2013, over 85% of Google’s revenue came from their AdWords platform. When you consider that their total advertising revenue for that year surpassed $50 billion, that is a very significant figure. What this tells us is that paid advertising isn’t going away any time soon. Platforms such as Google AdWords are going to […]
To get content in front of the right audience you can sometimes get help from paid promotion. Paid content promotion can come in many forms including social media, remarketing and native advertising. Whilst the main purpose of paid promotion is to increase traffic and conversions, have you ever asked if it can impact organic search […]
Early in February 2015, a great big slab of news landed in everyone’s news feeds – Twitter and Google had struck a deal to show tweets in SERPs. Déjà vu? Maybe it’s 2009 again… But how can this help the parties involved, why are they going for it? And what does this mean for your SEO?
Another year of mobile has come and gone, so if you haven’t done so already, it’s probably time to jump on the mobile PPC bandwagon. I’ve noticed many businesses neglecting mobile in their AdWords account, and a recent study by eConsultancy shows that 21% of companies currently do not have a mobile PPC strategy in […]
