Other payment models: • Reservation (Fixed price) • CPM (Cost Per Thousand Impressions) • CPC • CPA, CPO, CPV… (Cost Per Action / Order / View, Download…)
  • 7. Performance Based Investment 7 $1,000 Investment in AdWords $2 cost per click ≥ 500 Clicks 3% Conversion rate =15 Sales Average Ticket Size = $200 $1,000 Investment Result in $3,000 in Sales Is it worth it? If yes, reinvest
  • 8. Search Advertising 8 • Search engines charge dynamic CPC • No fixed budget, no minimum limit, no commitment • No fixed price (CPC) • Max Bid: the highest CPC you’re willing to pay for a keyword • Avg CPC: the average CPC after your ads run • Min First Page Bid, Min Top of Page Bid: Google bid guidance • Not demographic but intentional targeting • Ads appear when when someone searches for our target keyword It’s like a plane: auto-pilot can fly it, but you better have an experienced pilot during take off.
  • 9. • Account: The top level of management for logins, payment methods, connections with other Google properties. Can contain many different campaign types like search, display, gmail, youtube, mobile, dynamic search, product listing ads. • Campaign: The level of management for daily budgets, location targeting and some ad serving settings. Each campaign can contain multiple ad groups but all ad groups work the same way. • Ad Group: A collection of keywords within a campaign that trigger related ads. All the keywords in an ad group may trigger any of the active ads in the same group. This is the most granular management level in AdWords. • Keyword: A specific word, or combination of words, used to target your ads to potential customers. When a user searches on your keyword, your ad might be shown. AdWords Structure 9
  • 11. 3 Main Operational Metrics in AdWords 11 1) Max CPC: Maximum Cost Per Click • Maximum price you are willing to pay for particular keyword eg. $3 for the keyword “lg laptop” • Setting on ad group level, but also can differentiate on keyword level • Optimize looking at Avg CPC 2) CTR: Click-Through Rate • Number of Clicks / Number of impressions (times your ad shows up) • Always try to maximize CTR, as it means Quality 3) Landing page bounce rates: • First page where the visitors see after clicking on your ad. • Optimize looking at bounce rates
  • 12. Basically, there are just two things we can work on for long term success on AdWords: 1) Keywords: Use the best keywords, group them in very specific ad groups. If someone searching for a keyword would benefit from seeing your ad, that keyword is a very good candidate for your AdWords campaign. 2) Ads: Deliver useful and compelling ads that generate very high Click-Through- Rates (CTR). It’s a good ad if someone would be missing your ad when they don’t see it. • Quality Score: The measurement used to determine your ad’s relevance to user searches. Your Quality Score is determined by your keyword’s click- through rate (CTR) on Google and by the relevance of your ad text, keyword, and landing page. Creating effective landing pages is also good for you. 2 Pillars of AdWords 12
  • 13. Keywords 13 • What are your good keywords? • Don’t care who are your customers, but what they look for! • Write down 5 keyword phrases based on each your product / service you offer • Don’t use single (one word) keywords because it is too broad • Imagine yourself as the customer • What would you search for? • Try to work on that “AHA!” moment • Use these free tools • AdWords KeyWord Tool – just ad database • Google Suggest – see how Google completes keywords when people type in • Related Searches – at the bottom of most search result pages
  • 14. 3% 6% 6% 12% 20% 22% 29% 0% 10% 20% 30% 7 word phrases 6 word phrases 1 word phrases 5 word phrases 4 word phrases 3 word phrases 2 word phrases Average Search Phrase Length 94% of searches are multi-word phrases 14
  • 16. Keyword Match Types 16 •Broad Match •Phrase Match •Exact Match •Negative Keywords
  • 17. Broad Match • If you bid on => celebrity perfumes • Your ad will appear when people search for: Hollywood celebrity perfumes List of celebrity endorsed perfumes Perfumes wear by celebrity
  • 18. Phrase Match • If you bid on => “celebrity perfumes” • Your ad will appear when people search for: Hot celebrity perfumes Top Ten celebrity perfumes Celebrity perfumes and fragrance Best celebrity perfumes for men
  • 19. Exact Match • If you bid on => [celebrity perfumes] • Your ad will appear when people search for exactly Celebrity perfumes
  • 20. Negative Keywords • Technique to filter out traffic that you don’t want • Put minus sign “-” • Reseller • Wholesaler • Free • So, your ad will not show up when people search for: perfumes reseller perfumes wholesaler free perfumes
  • 22. How to write effective ads? • Use Keywords In Headline or Description line • Put Benefits 1st, Features come 2nd
  • 23. • Capitalize 1st letter of each word in display URL • Be Specific • Geographically specific ads How to write effective ads?
  • 24. • Don’t Sounds like you are trying to sell them something • Show Trust & Credibility How to write effective ads?
  • 25. A Common Mistake: Don't bring visitors to your homepage. You only have 5~10 seconds to make an impression as your visitors scan through You’ll spend more money because - Landing page not relevant to ad - Low Quality Score - You have to bid high – cost more!
  • 26.  No impressions after a week? Delete!  No clicks after a month? Delete!  Quality Score for keyword under 4?  If you believe in that keyword, give it its own ad group, ad and landing page  If it was just a trial, not worth it; delete!  Average ad position lower than 5?  If you believe in that keyword, increase your bid and maybe add a related ad  If it was just a trial, not worth it; delete!  Your daily budget is not enough?  If it is profitable, increase your daily budget  If not profitable, decrease your CPC bids, remove low quality keywords 26 My Basic Rule Set
  • 28. Thanks for your attention 17 Deniz Utku | @denisutku | Dec 2015
