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 normally included in your inclusive call minutes. Please note we may record some calls.
Last week we looked at the new Google AdWords Campaign Experiments (ACE) feature and tried it out for ourselves to see how it worked.
We set up one of our campaigns to run an experiment. We set the split with control at 50/50 of total impressions to the campaign and told Google to increase our bid prices by 100% for the experiment.
Well, interesting! Overall the results weren’t astonishing, we did get an additional conversion through an experiment impression (wow!) but the concept behind the experiments feature is great and what we were really interested in.
The campaign we used had relatively low traffic but as you can imagine a bid increase of 100% on a campaign that has thousands of impressions per day can be quite a significant change on spend!
Other things to consider
At present the Adwords Campaign Experiments tool is not fully supported by AdWords Editor, therefore seeing scheduling and making amends to experiments needs to be done through the AdWords interface only.
Bid Management Tools
Bid management tools will continue to work as normal with ACE however it is recommended you speak to your software provider to ensure your system is fully integrated and to learn their best practices for running experiments with ACE. You might not want your bid management software taking over your experiments as well!
For some serious data to review, we will be trying this on a campaign that has slightly higher traffic to get the numbers rolling.
Give it a go yourself! Let us know how you found it and what sort of things you experimented with. Happy testing!
Last month, we tuned in to listen to our very own Samantha Noble become a radio star. As a guest on Xan Phillips’ The Business on Voice FM, a programme dedicated to promoting the good news stories about business from the Southampton area and beyond, Sam shared her insights into paid media.
The Drum Network has launched a new initiative called ‘Create Britain’ which aims to show the world that Great Britain is still an awesomely creative marketplace, despite Brexit.
Create Britain is an online interactive map that invites businesses from the creative industry to contribute a short video to claim their own pin on the map that links to their video clip. The video clips need to answer one question: ‘What makes British creativity so great?’.
