Understanding Your Google Ad Goals

The first thing we do is work with you to identify the goal of your Google Ads campaign. 

There are many different goals that Google Ads can help you achieve. These include brand awareness, website traffic, phone calls, bookings, and purchases. Every business is different which makes every Ad campaign unique. Understanding the main goal you want to achieve can help bring in more qualified leads through your Google Ad campaign resulting in lower costs per conversion. 

Having your goals clearly defined can make a huge difference in the cost-effectiveness of your Google Ad campaign. 

Once we have established your goals, we can begin the next step, keyword and audience research.

Google Ads is Google’s ad platform. I know that statement is obvious, so let me explain further…

Have you ever made a Google Search for something very specific, and been served ads for exactly what you were looking for? That’s Google Ads. It allows brands/companies to jump to the top of the search results (at a cost) and be the first listing a potential customer sees.

Using Google Ads, you can also do display advertising with their display network and YouTube advertising.

The difference between Google Ads and SEO is that one is pay-to-play and one is free.

Google Search Ads will allow you to be the #1 result shown on Google (in the ads section)- all you need to do is pay for the privilege.

SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is where the organic search results are displayed.

Organic search results, created by SEO, receive about 53% of all clicks, whereas paid search results are responsible for only about 27% of clicks.

People using ad blockers might not even SEE Google Ads. The best strategy is to do a combination of Google Ads and SEO to ensure you’re being listed in the search results.

Over 92% of Canadians use Google as their search engine of choice. Ads are responsible for about 27% of search result clicks, so if you have a poor SEO strategy, or are still waiting for your campaign to kick in, Google Ads is a great way to reach customers with intent to buy.

  • Understanding your business objectives
  • Understanding your products/services and profit margins
  • Determine the proper campaign types
  • Keyword research, keyword research, and MORE keyword research.
  • Creating the best campaign structure to reduce your cost per click/cost per conversion
  • Your objectives may result in more than one campaign being created to drive down costs
  • Creating the proper “ad exertions” to increase your CTR likeliness
  • Writing copy variations of headlines, descriptions, and ad extensions for your campaign
  • Setting up conversion tracking on your website and within Google Analytics
  • Adding negative keywords that are similar to your offering, but are vastly different. Ex. If you repair Honda Civics, you won’t want to appear in ads for dealerships selling that same car. It will end up costing you a lot of money as their margins are bigger than yours (in terms of $$$)

Optimizing a Google Search Ads campaign can be tricky if you don’t know what you’re doing.

Google will often give you recommendations, and a “one click fix” to implement these recommendations – however, if you’re blindly trusting their recommendations, you may end up over spending on keywords that aren’t directly associated with your offering.

To optimize your search ads, you’ll want to look at your campaigns daily to remove any keywords that are similar, but not related, to your offering. This means you’re telling Google not to show your ad for these specific keywords.  You’ll also want to add new relevant keywords, and update your ad copy to reflect these new search terms.
