Give yourself a pat on the back! Everything seems set to go; choosing keywords, bidding, market analysis and even placing your ad in a favorable position. On top of this you have been able to take advantage of Google’s tutorials and keyword research tools, to get your campaign off to a flying start. In fact it seems like you may not have to bother with it for the next 6 months. So what’s next?
The next thing to do is to roll up your sleeves and be prepared to get down to some hard work. Setting up your campaign is the easy part. Now you will have to maintain your great campaign and be sure it is productive. You can do this in several ways.
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.
So what do you do with a failing ad? If you have positioned it correctly and it is being seen in the first 5-10 pages you might want to look at the keywords. It is a great temptation to use a popular keyword to draw in more traffic to the ad. This is based on the concept of supply and demand.
The one problem that you will experience with these popular keywords is that they will not be targeted to your particular market. In general a searcher will commence with these words and then proceed to more specified ones. When choosing keywords you will need to use those that will attract your niche market, but at the same time draw enough traffic.
You will want to have a good blend of keywords. general ones to bring in traffic and new leads and specialized ones 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.
