Google Ads Management Services and Advertising can help your business grow, but it’s important to learn how to utilize the different tools Google offers so you can use them effectively to meet your goals and track your performance over time. To help you with that, we’ve compiled all of the best advice into one ultimate guide on Google Ads campaign management. Here are some of the key insights you’ll find in this guide.
Step 1: Create an Ads Campaign
Before you even start thinking about setting up a campaign, take some time to find out the basics of Google Ads. Once you’ve gathered that information, it’s time to get set up. Prepared to allocate at least 30 minutes of your day regularly for running and optimizing campaigns on Google ads. You will have much better results if you’re in this for the long haul.
Step 2: Create an Ad Group
The first step is to create an ad group. It’s important to note that there is a difference between an ad group and a campaign. An ad group is one of three areas where you can place text ads and other kinds of ads. You have text-ads-only ad groups, video ads, and traditional display ads.
When you create an ad target, make sure it has some associated keywords for the search query that you would like your ads to show up for. Once your target has been created, in the next step you will see how many impressions and clicks your new target may receive over some time.
Step 3: Choose Keywords (and add negative keywords)
This is one of the most important parts of managing your Google Ads campaign. Simply put, keywords are the terms you want your ads to show up on Google when people search for products or services that are similar to what you offer. You should be careful not to set yourself up as a company offering certain goods or services. When your company’s actual specialty is something else entirely. This can lead to disappointments in which customers may want a service you cannot provide. For example, an accounting firm who searches for more general keywords like an accountant might be disappointed if they then realize that this firm specializes in tax preparations and business management – things they didn’t know before their search.
Step 4: Set Bids
It’s important to note that for a given keyword and country, the highest bid does not always win. In general, if you’re having trouble winning a particular auction then make sure that your bids are on target with the average of the competition (after looking at all other factors). Setting higher bids than those set by competitors is a quick way to get your ads pulled from Google.
An important difference between manual bidding and automated bidding is that in manual bidding. You can specify a different bid amount for each new ad variation.
Step 5. Choose a Day and Time to Run Your Ads
Remember, the day and time you run your ads can have a significant impact on the success of your campaign. Running your ads at noon might be more effective than running them in the evening. You could also try running ads based on how long people are expected to search for things. For example, if it’s known that people often go on Google for gardening questions in late spring or early summer. But then there is a lull in people searching again until autumn or winter when we’re going about our holiday shopping. You might want to schedule ads for those periods and avoid advertising during times of the year when people are less likely to search for anything.
Step 6. Define Your Budget (and How Much You Can Spend Per Day)
All campaigns in AdWords start with your campaign budget. Your daily budget is not just the amount of money you have to spend every day. But also the maximum cost-per-day for an individual campaign within your entire account. For example, if you set a daily budget of $100 for a given campaign and then add four more campaigns to that same account. The new max cost per day for that campaign becomes $25 ($100*4).
Pretend this business is about ducks. So what happens when I put my hand in the water and just randomly make a bunch of shapes? This business is like that. You can pretend it’s anything. It doesn’t matter because they’re all talking about ducks anyways, so it could be anything.
Step 7. Track Performance
The next step is to add negative keywords. This helps avoid paying for traffic that you don’t want your ads to show on. Remember, search engine ads are a bit like fishing – they can catch the fish that they want. But also other bad fish by mistake. Google makes it easy to say no thanks to irrelevant clicks by adding those terms into your negative keyword list and then balancing them with the right positive ones.
Section 8. Add Negative Keywords and Don’t Pay For Fake Traffic
Keyword bidding can help improve your Google ads by targeting your customer’s search behavior and eliminating clicks that don’t align with what you’re trying to sell. However, this can quickly backfire if you accidentally bid on phrases or keywords that are irrelevant to your business or too specific. This is why negative keywords are such an important aspect of campaign management! It’s a good idea to start by adding the most relevant negative keywords to avoid the risk of spending money on clicks from people who have no interest in what you offer.
