Each year, more and more companies use an Google Ads campaign as their main medium when it comes to advertising over the Internet. An Google Ads campaign is an easy, cheap yet effective way to market a company’s products and services.
At the same time, it offers better results as the campaign is geared towards keyword density while aiming directly for a specific market. With regular print and broadcast advertising, you have to think of ways for the ad to directly hit your target market.
With an Google Ads campaign, you do not have to spend much effort since the medium itself is hitting your audience right where you want them to be hit: which is by clicking on a direct link to your web site once a keyword is typed into a search engine.
With popular search engines such as Google offering a fairly reasonable amount for keyword hits, both small and big companies are turning to campaigns for their advertising needs.The problem is, since Google Ads campaigning has gained popularity, there lies a challenge to bid for the top spot. The competition has become fierce when it comes to emerging on the top three positions on the list once a keyword is entered. Unless you want to be at the end of a search list, you need to come up with a straightforward and effective Google Ads campaign.
At the end of the day, you would want to see the results of the campaign so here are some helpful tips on how you can emerge victorious against these challenges:
1. Create a Google Ads campaign and use it effectively.
Offering campaign services is Google’s main cup of tea, and they will profit from you whether your company earns from these campaigns or not. You would not want to just give your money to Google without gaining any results so the key here is to use the tools that they offer to your advantage. Once a web surfer types in a keyword on Google and clicks Search, there are ‘Sponsored Links’ displayed and with each click, the advertiser needs to pay Google. If you are an advertiser and you decide to use Google’s Ads campaign, study their guidelines and use the tracking tools that they offer to know which keywords get the most hits or matches. Then, you can revise your campaign so that it will be more applicable to address a specific market.
2. Use the tools to target your audience.
Setting up an account in Google Ads would require you to key in the languages and location that you prefer. This is very important because if you do not set this up properly, then your products and services might be offered to a region or country wherein you do in not currently operate. Thus, you would gain you more advertising costs which would not yield any results if you are not properly addressing your target market. If you have clients in a bilingual region or if you operate in another country, choose the languages used in that location. This Google feature gives you more control when it comes to targeting a specific audience.
3. Compose and design your ad.
In creating your campaign, make sure that you have a clear understanding of Google’s guidelines. You would like users to click on your ad if they find it interesting enough. Of course, your web site will only be linked to related keywords so it is vital to focus on that as well. When composing an ad, make it brief, informative and attention-grabbing all at the same time. Bear in mind that it does not necessarily mean that once a visitor goes to your web site, they will stay there for a long time. Your web site should be designed to convince people to take advantage of the products and services that you offer before they leave. Otherwise, you would have a lot of hits on your web site but end up with a lot of misses on marketing and sales opportunities.
4. Choose the correct keyword.
This is one of the most difficult parts when it comes to the Ads campaign process. Use all the resources that you have to come up with the keywords that will lead to a hit on your web site. Use lay man’s terms as much as possible. Put yourself in the shoes of a student or a housewife surfing the Internet. Unless the user is really tech-savvy, then he or she will just use everyday words and avoid technical terms. Google features a tool where keyword suggestions are offered. Vary your keywords from time to time as you learn which ones yield the most hits. This would also give you more results because users may enter keywords differently even when they are searching for the same topics.
By coming up with a gameplan on how you can use Google Ads to spice up your advertising campaign, then you would most likely be on top of the list once Internet users key in a word which is related to the products and services that you offer. This would yield more profit for you and your company, without having to dole out millions in advertising campaigns through other mediums.
