  • Moment of Relevance: Search generates conversions at the lowest cost per acquisition. SEO & PPC work together
  • You are in control.
  • According to the U.S Online Marketers pay per click search ads provide the highest ROI. Now that we understand that PPC can provide conversions at a low cost per acquisition, where do you started?
  • Step 1. Before you begin selecting keywords, outline who your target audience is. What do they look like, what benefits will interest them? Once you know who you are speaking to, Define what you want them to do when they get to your site. Do you want them to buy a product, request a quote, sign up for a newsletter, download?Once the goals are identified, ensure that your tracking software is set up to track these goals. Ensure your adwords account is linked and auto tagging is turned on if you are using google analytics.
  • The 2nd step is to begin building your keyword list. Creating the right list is essential to success.
  • Here is a list of several sources that I use to conduct keyword research and begin building a targeted keyword list. I will show you examples of the first three in a minute… Competitor websites – what are they calling it? Take note of the key benefits that are being sold to the site users. Thesaurus and dictionary.com can also help you. If analytics is installed on your site, investigate what search phrases are bringing users to your site now. Are they the right users? Are they doing what you want them to do. If yes, adding them to the keyword list will help generate a higher volume from users with that search intent. Do you track your internal site search? If so, what are your users asking for?
  • Consider the search intent. Is it clear by their search phrase? Example: if you sell notebook computers, one may consider the term notebook. However, think about that term for a moment…. What is the searher’s intent? We don’t know! In addition to not knowing their search intent; what else could this user be searching for? A $0.99 spiral notebook perhaps? This term in general should not show up in your keyword list if you are aiming to generate leads on a budget. However, what about the terms “buy notebook computer”? Think about this when choosing your keywords.
  • Proper account structure is another critical component to your campaigns success. When structuring your accounts, I recommend not using Google AdWord’s set up wizard. It is designed to be efficient, not effective. To effectively set up your campaign, I recommend starting with a basic excel spreadsheet coupled with Google’s free tool called AdWords Editor.When grouping keywords into ad groups, go back to search intent and relevancy. Someone searching for laptop specs vs. buy a cheap laptop have different needs. Even though you may be sending them to the same landing page, you need a different message. Control this message by grouping your keywords into tightly themed ad groups with a focused set of ads for each set of keywords.
  • Now that we’ve identified areas for improvement, how can we improve? Highlight quality score – explain on next slide
  • When optimizing your campaign, the keyword quality score is a dominant factor. Working to improve quality score will positively affect your overall campaign performance.
