Advanced Google Ads Training Workshop
Friday, February 21, 2020
Even with all of the new marketing channels that have opened up over the years, Google Ads (formerly AdWords) is still the core of many companies interactive campaigns. If your PPC campaigns are not running efficiently, it can have a drastic impact on your bottom line. Join Google Ads expert Brad Geddes Friday, February 21 for a full day of Google Ads education and discussion that will teach you not only the best practices but also advanced concepts and strategies that are based on a decade of research and testing.
The Buyer Journey
We start the day looking at how people search and the overall buying funnel. We will examine funnels for different types of companies. This information helps set the stage for the rest of the day as your keywords, ads, audiences, and attribution models all stem from how people search, research, and buy from your company.
Comprehensive Keyword Usage & Organization
The absolute center of every Google Ads campaign is keywords. We’ll start this section by correlating keywords to the buying funnel and examining the user intent. While keywords are the lifeblood of PPC, perfecting your match types usage while controlling your negative keywords can drastically increase your overall revenue.
With the recent changes to match types, we’ll dive into how to manage search terms and organizational principles to maintain control of your search terms even though the match type changes.
For the advanced users, we will get into n-gram analysis and Levenshtein distance for query management and analysis.
Everything You Need to Know About Creating & Testing Amazing Ads
There’s a reason it’s called Google Ads, Bing Ads, and Ad Groups. The only part of your account that a searcher sees is your ads. We’ll cover how to:
- Create compelling ads
- How to use RSAs, ETAs, and 3rd headlines
- Scientifically test ads for small to enterprise accounts
- Find & use insights from ad testing data
It doesn’t matter if you have 10 ads or 10 million; we will go through how to test individual ad groups, and test at scale so you can pull customer insight data for your account.
Audience Targeting Strategies
Audience targeting should be part of your PPC strategies. We’ll examine display remarketing, remarketing list for search ads, customer match, demographic targeting, and other audience options.
We’ll show how to create advertising strategies for your account that combines audience targeting data and other Google Ads features together to fine-tune your customer acquisition strategy.
We’ll relate these features back to the customer journey so you can fill your funnel with users based upon where you want to increase your funnel size.
Your ads and marketing do not exist in a vacuum. Competitors are watching and changing offers or starting new promotions all the time. We’ll make sure you have answers to these common questions:
- How do you evaluate competitor ads to ensure our offers are compelling?
- What insights can I gather from Google’s Auction Insights tool?
- We’ll include Free Data Studio reports to examine Auction Insights data
- Should I use 3rd party tools and how can they help?
We’ll look at how to analyze the competition to find insights that you can use in your marketing tactics.
Diagnosing Data Changes
When your conversions drop, do you know exactly why that happened? When your impression share decreases but your conversions go up, can you quickly track down why that happens so you can take advantage of the trend?
Your data is constantly changing and in PPC; all the data is intermixed with various causes and effects. We’ll walk through how to examine the interrelatedness of metrics so you can understand what is the root cause of your data changes so that you can easily put fixes into place.
We’ll include free Google Data Studio reports to analyze this data for your accounts.
Conferences are fantastic places to network and meet fellow practitioners of online marketing. Lunch will be provided so you can spend time getting to know your fellow attendees.
You will have the opportunity to ask questions as we go throughout the agenda during the day, and we will end the day with an open Q&A session so you can make sure your specific questions are answered.

Testimonials From Workshops
I flew from Japan just for this seminar, and it was worth every penny. I know there are many people who teach AdWords, but no one is as specific as he is, and he doesn’t mind sharing the information with you. When it comes to AdWords, he is the one to listen to.

Brad I wanted to write and thank you again. My staff and I came away with a lot of very useful information. Having been a long time user, I thought I understood AdWords, Analytics and landing pages well. I wasn’t even close to the level of what I know now. I should have done this long ago. If the ideas running through my head were gears in a machine there would be smoke coming from them. Truly eye opening.
– Jay Papineau, IT Manager – Northwest Clinical Research Center
The seminar was probably worth far more than 10 times the cost. I was astounded to see how much useful information Brad was able to deliver in one day. I’m a little overwhelmed just thinking about where to start with all the positive changes I can now make with our internet marketing.

I found the Adwords seminars to be invaluable to our ongoing and future success with our Google ad campaigns. After the two days, I was left with a limitless supply of ideas and methods of marketing our business to the masses on the internet. We were also given key indicators of success, which is very helpful. I also found Brad to be very personable and happy to answer the few questions that were unique from my perspective. I highly recommend this seminar for any sized business that is looking to expand into the world of internet marketing!
