6 Best Kept Secrets for Google Ad Success

  1. Define Objectives: Know what you want your Google ads to accomplish before you even begin! Think of your five top questions: Who, what, where, why, and how- from the perspective of your business. 

  2. Know Your Target Audience: Similarly, understanding your ideal customer is crucial so you can properly target your ads to them. 

Bonus Tip: You may have more than one type of ideal customer depending on your products and services. Align goals and buyer’s accordingly.

  1. Well-Aligned Keywords, Ads, and Webpages: It’s not just about the ads, the strategy, or the website- it’s about how all three elements work together in harmony, and in a way that Google will favor. 

  2. Landing Pages: Once a user clicks on your ad and lands on your site, what do they see? Having landing pages that are designed to convert and are mobile-friendly is crucial. 

  3. Compelling Offers: Make them an offer that they simply can’t refuse! The world of digital ads is crowded, you want to not only have a deal but show users why it’s the best deal out there. 

  4. Remarketing: Don't just let them walk away! People are busy and need reminders, so nudge them with a remarketing ad after they’ve viewed your site, or product.  

6 Tips to Dominate the World of Facebook Advertising 

  1. Test Whenever Possible: Do you have creative for a Facebook or Instagram ad that isn’t performing the best? Consult with the experts and try split testing ads to see what works for your customers. 

  2. Consider Your Buyer Persona: Who is your ideal customer? Understanding your buyer will go a long way, so create a buyer persona, and refer to them whenever creating an ad. Ask yourself, “would this pique the interests of my ideal customer?”

  3. Use Creative that Stands out: Break up the monotony of your user’s Facebook feed, and stand out in your buyer's mind! Work with a designer to create ads that are interesting to look at, and will convince your ideal customer to click. 

  4. Short and Sweet: When it comes to your ad copy, the shorter the better!

  5. Optimize for Different Placements: Create ads that are used just for Facebook and Instagram stories, and ads that will be used just for the news feed. 

  6. Use One Call-to-Action: Don't overwhelm your customer - ask them to do one thing and one thing only.
