How To Manage An Adwords Campaign, After The Launch

by Brian Basch

Well you are finally at the top of the mountain. You have done all the leg work; positioning your ads, selecting keywords, studying bidding options and doing your marketing research. added to this is the fact that you have been smart enough to utilize Google’s great keyword research tools. You seem to have set up your advertising campaign for the next 6 months! Now what else is left to do?

Do not think you are finished because your work has just begun. Tracking your ads is your number one priority. When you do this you will be able to gage the actual productivity of each ad and ensure maximum performance.

The first one is by tracking every detail of your ad. There is a great tracking system on Adwords itself. Just looking at your campaign will tell you which keyword is bringing in traffic and you can also set up the system to track sales conversions, if you have your own product or service. You can co-ordinate this with your website tools to track leads and sales.

You will need to be aware of this, as a failing Adword campaign will eat up your advertising budget. It will not only waste your money but will prevent you from concentrating on the ads that are pulling, and bring in worthless leads. After all you will still be paying money for your unproductive ad.

When you have an ad that is no good, you need to think what can be done to improve it. True you may have a good position in the first 5-10 pages but you still need to make improvements with the keywords. In order to get more views to your ads it is sometimes a temptation to choose popular keywords. This is because you might think that a popular keyword will draw traffic due to supply and demand.

Unfortunately frequently searched keywords are not always targeted for your specific market. They are the keywords that searchers begin their search with but not necessarily the ones that will bring potential customers to your website.

There is a fine balance between a tight niche keyword and a broad based one. On one hand you want to attract traffic on the other hand you want to make sales.

To be successful with your Adwords campaign, you will need to keep a close eye on it. Of course the success or failure of your campaign will have an important impact on your business. Be sure to pay detailed attention to the management of your campaign to ensure the ongoing success of your business.
