  2. 2. Being successful globally means you must become an expert locally<br />
  3. 3. The International Campaign Challenge<br />Text Ads<br />Landing Pages<br />Inaccurate<br />Getting it done in local offices is slow and not practical<br />Inconsistent<br />Expensive<br />Multi-LingualPPC<br />I used machine translation, that resulted in low click through and conversions<br />Poor Results<br />We find it challenging to identify the right content for international campaigns<br />Not Global<br />Not Scalable<br />Not Local<br />
  4. 4. Methods for Executing Multi-Lingual PPC<br />
  5. 5. Translation is NOTthe answer<br />“I never think of a term in another language, translate it to my language and then search on it”<br />“I pick a term in my own language, and it is probably not even related to the keyword derived from translation”<br />
  6. 6. Translation Vs. Localization of Keywords<br />
  7. 7. Examples:<br />In Mexico, searchers are less likely to use “debt” (“deuda”), but instead use “prestamo,” which means loan<br />Scooter in Italy is “motorino” but users are more likely to search for “Vespa”<br />
  8. 8. What to do?<br />Rebuild your keywords locally<br />Think about how people search for your product or service in-market<br />Consider local exceptions:<br />Synonyms<br />Slang<br />Brands<br />Negatives<br />Typos<br />
  9. 9. Negatives<br />What if your product name is similar to a local celebrity name? a local brand?<br />Conduct local negatives research<br />
  10. 10. Text Ads<br />Text ads have to be “Transcreated”<br />Example: When Electrolux translated their ad from Swedish to English<br />
  11. 11. Give it a try<br />Select Sample<br />Select 2 to 3 campaigns and markets<br />Select 3 to 4 ad groups in each campaign<br />Performance Metrics<br />Baseline performance in traffic, conversions and sales revenue<br />Quantify pilot success based on measured improvements<br />A/B Test<br />Tag “before” keywords<br />Compare to truly localized keywords on the same data range<br />
