  • This is our mantra/vision slide
  • So as marketers we tend to use a lot of acronyms – CPC, CPA, ROI , EDM.But today’s topic is about SEM – Search engine marketing.
  • This morning we are concentrating on two topics – SEO and PPC.SEO – optimise a website for natural/organic listingsPPC - Buying your way into the sponsored (paid) search listingsSEM - A type of online marketing that encompasses both organic SEO and PPC marketing
  • When you do a search, the page can be split into 3 areas.
  • Let’s have a look at how Google has changed over the years.In 2000, you can see it’s very text heavy for results. But you can already start to PPC results on the top2006, we see the introduction of additional content with the News results showing at the top.2013 there is rich content with universal search results blending news, images and videos
  • What happens if you don’t have it – closed sign on the door.What will your customers do – they’ll go to your competitors that can be found, and do sell the product or service. You’ve just missed an opportunity to convert that customer be it to sell a product/service or allow them to find more information.
  • End video mid way
  • With any marketing activity you first make a plan of what you want to achieve.So we start off with campaign objectives.Once we know what the objectives/goals are we can go and create keywords and ad copy.After the campaign has been running for a little while we want to analyse and report on how things are going.Now that we have data, we can do some bid management and any other ongoing optimisations or changes.When we make optimisations you would refer back to the campaign objectives and then start the lifecycle all over again. Are the keywords and ad copy relevant to the objectives etc..Analysis/Reporting –Ongoing optimisations – includes implementing changes that are discussed in reporting. Examples: keyword expansion, ad copy, bid management and landing page testing.
  • However for today’s session on PPC we will be focusing on Planning, Ad Copy and bid management
  • Business goalsWhat do you want your paid search activity to do? Is it:Cost Per Acquisition – Purchase, Download, ApplicationCost Per Lead – Sign UpTraffic – to increase your brand awarenessTop Product/ServicesHelps identify relevantkeywords for your campaignUnique selling points What makes you different from your competitors.Are your products cheaper, do you have better service?Targeting/DemographicsSet location based targeting – eg based on stateSeasonality – if you are selling flowers you would want to have a campaign around valentines dayAll this will help you write relevant ad copy.
  • Here is a video on writing better relevant ads.Play to the end
  • Highlight what makes your business, product, or offer uniqueFree shipping? Large selection? Tell people! Highlight features or areas that make your business stand out from the competition.Include prices, promotions, and exclusivesIf you have something special to offer, make sure your customers see it. People are usually searching to make a decision about something. Give them what they need to help make their decision.Tell your customers what they can doAre you selling? Tell them what they can buy. Are you offering? Tell them what they'll receive. Strong verbs like Purchase, Call today, Order, Browse, Sign up, or Get a quote tell your customers what they can expect to do when they arrive at your website.Include at least one of your keywords in your ad textThis can catch the attention of the people who searched for the keyword, and show that your ad is related to what they want. Additionally, the keyword you use will appear in bold in your ad, just like it does in the search results, making it more obvious how relevant your ad is. Let's say you include the keyworddigital cameras in your ad's headline, like "Buy Digital Cameras," and a customer searches for digital cameras. Your ad's headline will appear in bold, like "Buy Digital Cameras." Your ad's headline could also appear in bold if a customer searched for buy SLR cameras, like "Buy Digital Cameras," since "buy" and "cameras" match words in the customer's search term.Match your ad to your landing pageTake a look at the page on your website that you're linking to, which is called the landing page. Make sure the promotions or products in your ad are included in that page. If visitors don't find what they expect to see when they reach your site, they might leave.ExperimentCreate three to four ads per ad group, trying out different messages to see which performs the best with your customers. AdWords can automatically show the better-performing ads within an ad group more often. This removes the guesswork and lets you build on what you've learned from your experiments.All this well help you to write better more effective and relevant ad copy and that will get you a better quality score.

Let your customer tell you what they want to see.Example : Let’s say you sell a newspaper subscription for $365 a year. You could test $365 in your ad or $1 a day. Other examples are one day shipping or 24 hour shipping.All this well help you to write better more effective and relevant ad copy and that will get you a better quality score.
  • Before we go into bid management let’s first talk about the quality score I just mentioned..End video part way.So the first step to cheaper CPCs is actually getting relevant ad copy and keywords. The other thing we can do is bid strategies.
  • Regardless if you use a bid management technology or the steps you go through for a bid strategy is the same.You can’t make an informed decision if you don’t have data. Generally we suggest leaving about 2 weeks but this can change depending on the size of the campaigns. It could be more for smaller campaigns or it could be less for larger campaigns.Sometimes you have keywords that perform different functions. Some keywords you will always want to appear e.g brand terms.Some keywords goals are based on their profitabiliye.g CPA or CPLFigure out what keywords are working and what is not working from the data.
  • Generally you will come across these four scenarios to which you need to make a decision. This is where a technology could help you do this. Adwords has a conversion tool, or you may have heard of Marin/Kenshoo.There is nothing stopping from you doing this manually as well in an excel spread sheet which might work for smaller campaigns.

  • However bid management should not just be about moving bids up or down. There are other best practices we recommend that falls in bid management/optimisations.With the high performing terms we recommend moving them to their own campaign.This allows for better budget control to make sure they have sufficient budget to spend as requiredPerhaps these keywords are also sitting in a low average position. We could try increasing CPCs to improve the average position and potentially improve their performance even more. Is it the ad copy/keyword combination that is making them perform well. Are there learning's we can use for other parts of the accountWith low performing terms the easiest thing we could do is pause them. But before we do that, we would suggest giving them a chance to improvePerhaps the average position they are currently sitting at isn’t cost effective. We could decrease the CPCs so they spend less but still showAre there negative keywords we could implement. E.g if you are selling cruises, you would want to include “tom cruise” as a negative. There are reports that you can run to show you the actual search terms used compared to the keyword you are bidding on.Take the poor performing keywords and isolate them in a campaign. Just like the high performing terms we can give them a lower budget and control how much they spendIs there ad copy from the high performing terms that is working well that we can use?Paid search is constantly changing with seasonality, competitors and your own marketing activity. We would recommend reviewing how results are going
  • If you make multiple changes at the same time – how do you know what is making the strategy work? Was it seasonality, was it a competitor, was it our new promotion.A PPC campaign is not a set and forget marketing channel. We recommend regular review of results to make sure the changes made are in the right direction.
  • An easy way to understand the value of impression share is to think of the online advertising landscape as a delicious pie. You and your competitors are each trying to grab the biggest slice of that pie. By tracking your impression share metrics, you're keeping tabs on the size of your slice compared to the whole.Example – Bob has an PPC campaign. The total impressions available was 1000 but he only showed 500 times. His impression share is 50%
  • Remember this sign?Not having a search campaigns is like not answering the phone or having a closed sign on your front door. And what happens if your door is closed but your competitor’s door is open?
  • A missed opportunity for a sale, conversion or traffic.Use example of Bob – he is getting 10 conversions but he only has 50% share of voice. If he increased his share of voice to 100% he could double his conversions.Need to make sure that the budget increase is relevant. Let’s say you are a bank and your credit card offer isn’t the best. You may want to hold off.
  • An example of extended site links. Has to satisfy a few criteria
  • Customer lands on your site but doesn't put a lead through. Customer then proceeds to hope onto Google and search for WA BalletAs the customer has been included into one of our advanced segments we can retarget them with a promotional ad copy – We can also tailor this promotional copy. Because the audience segments we will build will be comprehensive, we can begin to exclude customers who have searched for wa ballet. Segment further by targeting customers who have browsed different sections of the website, and retarget them with a promotion copy tailored to that product
