Even with all of the new marketing channels that have opened up over the years, 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.

Workshop Topics

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, and audiences 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.

Using Impression Share & Quality Score to Make Smart Decisions:

Impression share shows you how often your ads are displayed and gives you wonderful share of voice data. Quality Score is a diagnostic tool that can help you understand improvements that your account needs.

In this section, we will demystify quality score, show you how to analyze and improve it; and then use quality score and impression share data to determine how to increase your account’s effectiveness.

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 AdWords 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 your want to increase your funnel size.

Automating Your Account:

There are many tasks to accomplish when managing a successful PPC account. Some of these tasks should be fully automated while others should be semi-automated or even manual. In the era of machine learning and AI; humans need to spend their limited time wisely and leverage automation where appropriate.

In this session, we’ll cover:

  • The types of automation
  • How and when to fully automate tasks
  • What tasks should leverage semi-automation and filters

This section will cover many aspects of Google Ads from bidding to ad testing to search terms management to reporting.

By the end of the session, you will know when and how to leverage automation for many aspects of your Google Ads account.

Networking Opportunities:

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.

Testimonials From Past PPC 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.

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.

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!
