How to Manage Your Google AdWords Campaign
by Maxine Stirling
When managing your Google AdWords campaign, there are several things you should take into consideration in order to maximize the benefits of your effort. This article will cover a few of the basic Google AdWords campaign management strategies you can make use of in your pay per click advertising campaign.
One of the first things you can do in your Google AdWords campaign is to make use of keyword optimization. You can start this process by doing your homework and limiting your keywords. Then, filter out searches that you know have a very poor conversion rate by instituting negative keywords into your keyword selections.
Creating brand awareness can be an important part of many people's campaign. If this is true for you, then you may want to consider a cost-per-impression campaign instead of just relying on the tradition cost-per-click method. With a cost-per-impression campaign, you ads will appear on websites that your potential customers frequently view. This particular Google AdWords campaign management strategy can be a cost-effective way to increase your brand awareness within specific industry circles.
If you are extremely confident in your website's ability to sell your products and/or services, and simply want to cast the widest possible net, then consider maximizing your keywords. One of the simplest ways to do this is simply by adding the plural and singular version of keywords that you are already making use of. If you sell laptops then include the singular form (laptop) and the plural form (laptops). Of course, you should probably be more specific than this unless you want to spend a small fortune on one days' worth of clicks.
Another effective Google AdWords management technique is limiting your spending budget. You should do this on a daily, weekly or even monthly interval. The idea is to work with the budget you have and to maximize the dollars you do spend. Never just through more money at a pay per click campaign if you are not seeing results. It is important to analyze the situation and examine other possible reasons for your lack of success. These could include an ad that does not grab the reader's attention, or the fact that your keywords produce prospects that are not relevant to your product or service.
These Google AdWords campaign management techniques can help you increase the efficiency of your campaign without stretching your budget too thin. Depending on the goals of your campaign, these strategies can be very effective.
