  • Is Your Website Ready for SEM? • Your Website needs to be ready to convert SEM ad clickers to leads • First impressions are key • Establish trust, make it clear how to contact you 10
  • Poor Site Example for SEM Ad Clicks • No clear headline that says „Denver Divorce Lawyer‟ • Phone number is above-the- fold, but not in prominent location • No online contact form option • Why they are unique does not stand out • No 3rd party support • Pictures of their attorneys personalize the landing page • Website has a professional look and feel 11
  • Good Site Example for SEM Ad Clicks • Clear headline that says „Bankruptcy Lawyer‟ • Phone number is prominent • Online contact form option • Why they are unique stands out • 3rd party support • Pictures of their attorneys to personalize page 12

  • What is Online Form Tracking? • Online Form Tracking in Google Adwords 15
  • What is Call Tracking? • Call Tracking Number, Dynamically Placed Into Website Only for SEM Visitors 16

  • Turn Google Display Network Off • Example of what NOT to let happen … 20
  • Establish High Enough Daily Budget • Why? Your ads have to be seen frequently enough to be clicked on. • Google Adwords requires you to set a daily ad click budget • Example: • $10 Average Cost Per Click • $20 Daily Budget • Google Adwords gets “stuck/confused” 21
  • Keywords – Start Narrow & Focused • Why? Because your ad click budget will be limited. Don‟t waste money on untargeted ad clicks. • Keyword Choice • Don‟t advertise on general searches for “lawyer” or “attorney” • Advertise on more targeted searches for “bankruptcy lawyer” or “divorce attorney” • Include variations of keywords related to what you do • People search in very unique ways: 20% of searches Google sees in a given day have not been seen in the last 90 days 22
  • Keywords – Match Types 23 Match Type Keyword Ads may show on searches for Ads won’t show on searches for Broad tennis shoes buy tennis shoes tennis shoe laces running shoes tennis sneakers Broad Match Modifier +tennis +shoes tennis shoes buy tennis shoes best shoes for tennis running shoes tennis sneakers Phrase “tennis shoes” red tennis shoes red tenis shoes tennis shoes today shoes for tennis Tennis sneakers Exact [tennis shoes] tennis shoes tenis shoes red tennis shoes buy tennis shoes • Negative Keywords • Add negative keywords (like –basketball or –running) to tell Google and Microsoft SEM systems to not show your ad for searches related to basketball shoes or running shoes • Very important when Broad match is used
  • Set Geo-Targeting • You want ad clickers who are most likely to convert into a lead. Typically these are people local to your office or offices. • So only show your ads to these people. 24
  • Set Geo-Targeting • Real example of company trying to sell a book online (written in English) 25
  • Set Geo-Targeting 26 • Target by city or metro area
  • Set Geo-Targeting 27 • Target a radius around a map point
  • Bid High Enough • Why? Because 83% of SEM ad clicks go to the top 3 ad positions. Position of your ad on the page is huge. 28 Source: http://searchenginewatch.com/article/2215868/53-of-Organic-Search-Clicks-Go-to-First-Link-Study 1 2 3 5 4 6 7 8
  • Effective Landing Pages for Ads • We‟ve reviewed this already, but poor landing pages are often a major pitfall. 29
  • Effective SEM Ad Text • Descriptive and emphasize why you are unique. • Be specific - tell searchers you provide what they are looking for. • Do searches and analyze your competitors SEM ads. • Good Ad Text Denver Divorce Lawyer www.samplefirm.com/divorce 20+ Years Experience, Top-Rated Free Initial Consultation - Call Today • Poor Ad Text Denver Divorce Lawyer www.samplefirm.com/divorce Our attorneys can help with divorce and family law issues in Colorado 30
  • Enhanced Google Campaigns • Google will switch all campaigns to Enhanced starting 7-22-13 • Any new Google campaigns created today are Enhanced • This change is all about the huge growth in searches being done from smartphones and tablets • What does “Enhanced” mean? • Mobile • By default your ads are shown to smartphones • Take control, don‟t let Google spend all your ad budget on irrelevant smartphone ad clicks • Location • You can alter your bids based on location • Time • You can alter your bids based on time of day 31
