    • Jennifer Slegg JenniferSlegg.com @jenstar AdWords Targeting by Income • Based on neighborhood incomes from IRS data. • Tailor ads to specific incomes. • Lower income look for deals and sales. • Higher income look for quality and service. • http://3qdigital.com/featured/household-income-targeting- adwords-yup/

    • Jennifer Slegg JenniferSlegg.com @jenstar AdWords Targeting by Income Courtesy Susan Waldes @suzyvirtual
    • Jennifer Slegg JenniferSlegg.com @jenstar AdWords Targeting by Income • Significantly higher brand searches by lower income (bottom 50%) • Possibly due to television campaign that reinforced branding • Also had highest CTR (11.33% CTR) • Non-brand top 10% vs bottom 50% CPL is $20 different • Only about 50% of searches could Google income target • Seemed to be equally split between Google and partners
    • Jennifer Slegg JenniferSlegg.com @jenstar Sitelinks Shorter Sitelinks perform better (12 characters NOT 25)
    • Jennifer Slegg JenniferSlegg.com @jenstar Sitelinks • Things like ® and ™ can make it stand out • For marketing, you CAN link to your Pinterest, YouTube, Instagram or Tumblr accounts. • Don’t forget grammar 101
    • Jennifer Slegg JenniferSlegg.com @jenstar “Bending the Rules” • Watch competitive keywords to see what interesting tactics are being used in competitive market areas. • Payday loans • Car insurance • Loans • Mortgage • Credit cards • Mesothelioma • Don’t break the TOS…. But ask your account rep if it is a beta test you can join.
    • Jennifer Slegg JenniferSlegg.com @jenstar Negative Keyword Campaigns • If you run a huge negative keyword list, run “the best of the negatives” keyword campaigns at rock bottom PPC. • Keywords with low conversions • Semi-targeted keywords • Negatives by location • Oops keywords • Also gives a second look to any keywords that may have been added to negative keyword list accidently or by another PPC manager
    • Jennifer Slegg JenniferSlegg.com @jenstar Negative Keyword Campaigns • B2C market targeting parents We chose 100 keywords in negative keyword list • Keyword1 – 3.8% CTR; ROI higher than average • Keyword2 – 2.9% CTR; ROI higher than average • Keyword3 – 2.3% CTR; ROI average • Group of dozen or so 2.0%+ CTR • However, there were some that performed >0.5% CTR that we removed quickly
    • Jennifer Slegg JenniferSlegg.com @jenstar Negative Keyword Campaigns • B2B tech market We chose 85 keywords from negative list • 1 keyword – 6% CTR with double average ROI • Now one of their best performing keywords • 3 keywords – 2-3% CTR with average ROI • Deleted the remainder and added back to negative list
    • Jennifer Slegg JenniferSlegg.com @jenstar Negative Keyword Campaigns • Why these keywords were in the negative list: • Error in cut and paste • “That is not how we refer to our product/market” • Regionality errors (pop/soda/sodapop)
    • Jennifer Slegg JenniferSlegg.com @jenstar Vanity Campaigns • You know your ad copy works & converts best BUT that stubborn owner who insists HIS ad copy is better! • Instead of banging your head against that wall, create a quick vanity campaign • Select keywords (what “the boss” searches for when he wants to see his ad – fortunately, they are seldom the money ones) • Geotarget as close to his office and home as possible
    • Jennifer Slegg JenniferSlegg.com @jenstar Mobile Design Flaws • Don’t believe a site is “mobile friendly” • Chrome mobile emulation tool • NEW tool from Google (May 2014) • Login to Google Webmaster Tools • Site must be verified • https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/googlebot-fetch • Mobile: Smartphone; Mobile: XHTML/WML; Mobile cHTML

    • Jennifer Slegg JenniferSlegg.com @jenstar Current Events Fail • Always add negative keywords based on current events or disasters with content ads • Car ads on Paul Walker death articles • Cruise line ads on Costa Concordia disaster • At best, they won’t get clicked • At worst, someone will report your ad showing up on an inappropriate article as “news”
