What is the best way to handle Trademarks in my ads?
Adding trademarks in ads may be necessary to maintain brand integrity and at times can increase CTR on ads. Other times, they cause us to go over character limits in our ads, lower relevancy and lower click thru rates.
The best way to test how trademarks affect brands would be to test ads with trademarks vs. ads without them (if this is allowed) and then use the best performing ad for future campaigns.
How much should I budget for my campaigns?
Budgeting campaigns will generally come down to your objectives and the size of the market being targeted. Most search engines have poor tools for projecting how much can be spent in advertising, so we recommend starting with a small campaign that can run for 15-30 days and then basing the future budget on the results from this test. This allows for accurate projections, and also helps the account establish quality scores with the search engines.
