Editor's Notes

  1. AdWords is just one big computer algorithm and any algorithm can be cracked.
  2. Talk about how google makes it very hard for PPC spammers, too. Google shut down millions of spammy accounts year. All keywords/ads are graded with a quality score. The higher your quality score, the higher your ad ranking and lower your cost per click.
  3. For every increase or decrease in quality score, you can expect your impression share to go up or down by around 9% on average.
  4. And of course twitter has noticed the people based advertising trend, too. They’re kind of the last mover here so a lot of this stuff isn’t working that great just yet (like it takes 4 hours for them to process a list – yikes) – but you can target whatever you want to promote to specific twitter IDs or emails, too. And of course twitter is super powerful because a lot of influential folks hang out there. To summarize – I think the email marketers and PPC marketers should be collaborating on this new “people marketing” thing since there is a lot of magic that can happen when you target specific people with the right message. It also supplements a lot of the problems associated with email marketing, such as low delieverability rates (due to filters), unsubscribes (it’s harder to unsubscribe from ads), more inventory (since you can only blast your email list a limited number of times per week), etc.
  5. The call extensions make things much better in the following 2 ways: You avoid sending people to a landing page (which is the leakiest part of the funnel and where you lose 97% of them) Commercial intent decays rapidly over time. Even if 3% of people fill out a “contact us” form, if it takes you a day to process their inquiry (say it came in in the evening or on a weekend) then you’ll end up losing half of them anyway – because the moment has passed.
  6. As a result it’s worth forcing your mobile ads on mobile go straight to a phone number. Yes, I realize this goes against all the articles that you read about having a mobile site and mobile landing page. We’re finding that for the majority of businesses (especially services based companies or companies doing lead generation, or companies whose business involves telesales) that it’s worth skipping all that crap. Test it out and see for yourself.
  7. So here are a few examples of People based advertising.
  8. Here’s what the Gmail sponsored promotion looks like when you click on the promoted email. It’s an HTML creative. So overall, is an example of PPC marketing that feels a lot more like email marketing. Infact the whole concept of “people marketing” (targeting ads to specific people) has a lot more in common with email marketing than conventional PPC marketing, with one key difference being you can target specific people who haven’t yet opted into your mailing list. (or even people who have opted out).
  9. By my estimations, there are over a thousand new features added in AdWords every year – and that’s just AdWords -- not including other big ad platforms like Bing, Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, etc. There’s a huge, decisive advantage in being the first in your niche to adopt the latest ad formats and targeting capabilities – here are just a few examples of my favorite latest and greatest features.
  10. Another recent example is the +Post ads for promoting your company Google+ posts as ads throughout the Google Display Network. Now, I’m not saying G+ is the greatest (actually I think it’s kind of crappy) but just as an example of the massive power of first mover advantage..
  11. I set up a +post ad campaign with a 20$ daily budget to promote the latest Google+ post from my +WordStream company page.
  12. The impact was profound. Before I was doing the google+ updates and it was not getting much traction. Add a little but of sponsored promotion and the page visibility increased dramatically. From 0 to 30k views / day! How? It’s because nobody uses this feature and there’s a huge advantage to being the first (sadly, nobody uses google+ either, heh).
