campaign management for ppc marketing is a fancy term for how the account is run. it works by effectively managing the main parts of your ppc account which all work together to achieve the desired outcome. you can do this yourself or pay to have it done by experts. if you choose the latter, do your research before parting with your hard earned $$$.
the 2 secret words to reaching effective campaign management are…
organisation and structure
like DNA, the structure of your ppc account is unique to you and your business. from each campaign right down to the keywords.
how it is structured will be determined by you and the type of business you have.
say for example, you have a sports shop…
you could set a campaign for each type of what ya want to advertise. one for jackets, one for trousers, one for shoes, one for camping, and so on.
then inside each campaign, you have adgroups. so if your campaign was camping, you could have your adgroups for each thing related to camping that you want to advertise. one for North Face sleeping bag. one for thermal sleeping bag, and so on
dya follow? 😉
then your keywords are grouped tight for each adgroup, each keyword would be a spin off from the main keyword, such as
- thermal sleeping bag
- warm thermal sleeping bag
- double coated thermal sleeping bag
- pink fluffy thermal sleeping bag 🙂
each adgroup will have an awesome ad that suits…
Come and see why campers from all over
the world get their thermal sleeping bags here
you will never run outta room in your Google AdWords account, you can have
- 500 campaigns
- 20,000 adgroups per campaign
- 5000 keywords per adgroup
- 3 million keywords per account
plenty to work with huh? 😉
ongoing management is crucial
once you get your account setup and have some ads live, you must watch them like a hawk and be ruthless with what isn’t working. don’t get emotionally attached. it gets deleted 🙂
say for example you are willing to pay $5 for each lead. if the adgroup (display network) or keyword (search network) has reached a little over that cost without generating a lead, it would get killed from the account. there is waaaaay more stuff that WILL work to be wasting your prescious coins on the shhiiyyaatt that doesn’t.
