What is Google AdWords and Search Engine Marketing?

Pay-Per-Click (PPC) advertising is a broad term used for online marketing where the advertiser is only charged when a user clicks on their ad and visits their website. Search Engine Marketing (SEM) which is a type of PPC, allows advertisers to serve ads to targeted audiences when they are searching a related topic or product in a search engine such as Google or Bing.  As the ads are served to people when and where they are looking for a specific product or service, the conversion rates are usually much higher than any other online marketing platform. Google AdWords is all of the above and is by far the most popular platform for PPC advertising with about 94.8% of the market share in Australia (as at August 2019. Bing Ads has only 3.51%, however there are also fewer competitors in this space so there is a huge opportunity for advertisers to capitalise on this.

Google AdWords Process

What You Can Expect

You may have noticed that there are a lot of ‘AdWords Experts’ out there, however not so many of them are Google Partners. I am a trusted Google Partner which means I have demonstrated to Google a high level of performance, am fully certified and maintain a certain level of spend. Google Partners have proven to Google that they are not only experts in the field but have a solid understanding of best practice and achieve a certain level of success.  When working with me, you can be rest assured that the person managing your AdWords account is the Google Partner.

My approach to managing any PPC or SEM account is methodical and thorough. Although not required, I do recommend having me conduct an audit to begin with. Audits are a stand alone product so there is no commitment to further management if you wish.

If you would like me to manage your account it is likely there will be a new setup involved, however this can be discussed once I have had a look at your account. You can then choose a monthly management package that suits your requirements. All packages involve a monthly performance report and review, optimisation of ads, bids and keywords and creation of new ad groups and ads when required.
