Google AdWords ad extensions are a great way to add information to your paid ads without incurring massive extra costs. Using ad extensions allows you to increase the attractiveness of your ads, generally making them stand out more in search results, which ultimately leads to more clicks on your ads. However, knowing that ad extensions are beneficial to your business  and deciding to use them is only the start. By understanding exactly what you can do to...

No doubt you’ll already have heard about the latest, and some would say biggest, scandal to hit social media company Facebook. In an exposé made by the Guardian newspaper it was revealed that the data of around 85 million of its users was acquired unethically by analytics company Cambridge Analytica. Worse than that, it would seem that the company then used this data to skew the opinions of voters in the run up to the US Presidential...

Employing Google AdWords to increase your sales is a tried and tested tool in everyone’s marketing arsenal. However, it doesn’t always go quite as planned.

Isn’t that how businesses survive and thrive? We all want to make our businesses more profitable, which is why I am often shocked to see how much money marketers and business owners often ‘throw away’ by approaching their Google AdWords bidding strategy...

There is no denying that Google ads are a great way for businesses to tap into new and previously unexplored sources of traffic to their website, increase awareness of their brand and ultimately make more sales. But as competition for keywords increase and so too do the winning bid prices, smart businesses are always looking to get more for their money when it comes to their Google ads. Much of this can come down to the bid...

AdWords is undeniably an awesome way to generate traffic and ultimately increase sales or other desired actions on your website. But as a business you want to get the most bang for your buck when it comes to your marketing spend. One way to do this is by increasing your Google AdWords Quality Score which in turn will decrease the amount you will have to spend in order to achieve your objectives. Not only is this a...

If you are anything like me, you have imagined yourself living the spy life at some point. Dressed like James Bond in a sharp tuxedo and sipping Martinis whilst surrounded by super villains, the most beautiful women in the world and coolest gadgets you could possibly imagine. But alas, for most of us this has and never will become a reality, so we have to settle for the next best thing…being a PPC ninja. But what if...

Knowing your return on investment (ROI) is crucial if you’re going to spend your marketing budget wisely. Although ROI is well known to be a key performance indicator (for everything, not just online marketing), 76 per cent of marketers are still either not measuring the ROI of their AdWords campaigns, or are not doing it properly. The result? Thousands of chief executives who still don’t know whether all the money they are pouring into AdWords really...
