Top 5 Google Ads mistakes

Google Ads aka AdWords.  They’ve now settled on and rebranded as Google Ads.

We have many businesses come to us with Google Ad woes: they’re just not getting the kind of results they had hoped or expected, despite spending lots of money.

So here are the 5 top mistakes that people make when running their own Google Ad campaigns:

  • No clear campaign objective

    • typically, 1) direct action (prompt your target audience to buy, download or opt-in) or 2) brand awareness (sprinkle your ads all over the internet or remarket to target who’ve visited your website)
  • No keyword research

    • bidding on 100s of words won’t make your campaign any more effective; be focused and specific
  • Not using negative keywords

    • you need a negative keyword list to avoid spending money on phrases you don’t want.  For example, if you only do “home aircon”, you want to block out searches for “car aircon”
  • Using Adwords Express

    • It’s the fastest way to waste your money; great for Google’s bank account, not yours
  • Not measuring ROI or campaign conversions

    • you must monitor your campaign’s effectiveness; stop what’s not working, do more of what is meeting objectives

If any of these resonate with you, click pause on your campaign right now and give us a call.
