Today I had a missed call from a London phone number, and I believed, "who the heck do I do know that would be calling me from London?" A number of hours later my phone was ringing again, and it was the identical London phone number, so I picked it up. It was Google.

More specifically, it was a call centre employee dubbed a "Google Account Strategist", they usually had been calling me about a new small business AdWords account I had just began managing. I receive so many calls from abroad folks about Google and search engine marketing, and how I "will be number 1 in Google for a fee" blah blah blah, so my first intuition was to say "no thanks" and grasp up, however I knew the client would be told if I did not at the very least hear what the account strategist had to say.

Fast forward 30 minutes to when the call finished. I used to be actually impressed with the extent of information and step-by-step element the account strategist offered for options that don't price extra to implement. Google AdWords has so many options that establishing a new account can easily take two days, so it was good to get a refresher on a few strategies I hadn't obtained to yet.

I assumed it would be useful to share these tips with you as properly, whether or not it's a refresher otherwise you're nonetheless exploring everything that AdWords can offer. I also have a step-by-step information for beginning AdWords, Get Started with Google AdWords, which it is best to check out first in the event you're new to AdWords. The muse must be proper before exploring the advanced features.

Here are the 5 Google AdWords strategies that are undoubtedly worth experimenting with.

Ad Extensions
Firstly, I'm an enormous fan of ad extensions because they mean you can embody additional info past the character limit of the ad copy, giving means more prominence to your ad.

My go-to ad extensions are at all times:

Location Extension: Showing your bodily address for hyper-local marketing.
Call-Out Extension: A great spot for value proposition textual content akin to "pleasant team".
Sitelinks Extension: As you are only allowed one URL per ad, this type of extension enables you to add other links to cross-promote within the identical ad. For example, in the event you're advertising a painting category, then within the extensions you may as well have links to ladders, paint brushes, and even paint services. Highlighting more of your offering positions you as a lovely one-stop option.
Call Extension: Make it very easy for folks to click while on their mobile and immediately calls your business.
Ad extensions might be utilized:
At the Account degree: This option will add the extensions to every ad within the entire account.
For Specific Campaigns: This option allows you to tailor the extensions primarily based on the Campaign theme.
For Particular AdGroups: This option permits you get even more particular with the extensions primarily based on the AdGroup theme.
The more relevant your ad is to what a searcher is searching for, the higher it would perform. Using the paint instance once more, it is not a good use of space to also advertise that you simply sell plants within the same ad. Certain, it will be attention-grabbing to some people, however it is best to have a separate AdGroup for plants with ads written specifically for folks searching for plants.
The subsequent ad extensions have advanced, and I'll positively be utilizing them wherever possible.
