Creating Great PPC Ads Slides

In order to broaden my knowledge in the field of online marketing I decided to join the PPC Market Motive course with Faculty Chair David Szetela. Online advertising expert David Szetela is currently president of music startup NoNoyz.com. He was also recently voted Top PPC Expert by a poll of several thousand PPC advertisers.

My Klout Influence Summary

According to @klout, I’m influenced by: @Szetela @markwschaefer @chrisbrogan @cshirky @sengineland and I could not agree more.

The Headline – The Most Important Characters

Headlines work best when the search term is included. Include 2 or 3 of the same keywords in each ad group as well as modifying words that might correspond to the way people search.

Consider the following keywords in your ad group:

  • modern design
  • modern jewelry design
  • design jewelry
  • modern designer

Writing great ad copy

Writing compelling ads is key if you want to succeed with your PPC campaigns. Let me share with you some key points you shouldn’t miss when writing your ad copy.

  1. You have to talk directly to the readers. Use words like “You” or “Your”. People respond better when you satisfy the searcher’s need or desire.
  2. Use Capital Case. Capitalize the first letter for each significant word and you’ll see an increase in your ad performance.
  3. Headlines work best when the search term is included.
  4. Your ads should emphasize the benefits of your offering.
  5. Tell people to take action. Don’t assume that people know what action you want them to take next. Be explicit and spell it out for them.

The Fundamentals of Ad Group Keywords

Sorry for being late with my post. I have been working hard on setting up a new campaign and putting in place best practices from Faculty Chair David Szetela at Market Motive.

Initially when talking about the fundamentals it includes to understand that your ad’s objective is to GET THE CLICK.

Ad Group Keywords

An ad group’s root keywords are the ones that represent the core theme of the ad group. The other keywords in the ad group should include these root keywords.

Surveying Your Competition

After fulfilling your preliminary research work you need to understand and list the advantages your competitors believe are their most important ones, and gain inspiration for your own organization’s list.

Back to my example if you are a Jewelry Designer think about the following:

  • Do you offer handcrafted jewelries?
  • Are your jewelries unique?
  • How do you offer your jewelries?
  • Do you sell through a store or website?
  • Do you offer exclusive jewelry?
  • Do you offer a large selection of jewelries?
  • What makes your jewelries special compared to your competitors?
  • Do you accept jewelry returns?
  • Do you offer a higher quality?
  • Are your jewelries convincing?
  • Is your price competitive?
  • Do you offer something extra?

That is Surveying Your Competition from the Creating Great PPC Ads series.

My next post is going to talk about the fundamentals for your ad group keywords.
