Jodi Benjamin Ecommerce Google Ads

I engaged Petras services because I was looking for someone to manage my google ads for my ecommerce business. I got that and SO MUCH MORE.

I was always very intimidated by google ads. I simply could not get my head around how to run and optimise a successful campaign, so I did not use it.

Then someone recommended Petra and my world changed. She is very data orientated, very analytical and razor focused on the small details, everything I am not good at. I never ever log into my google ads because I know Petra and her trusty team are all over it, and my google ads continue to drive very profitable traffic to my ecommerce store.

Since having Petra on my team I have grown considerably and I get about a 10x ROAS from my google ad spend. She has an open door and always has time for me and my million questions.

To top that all off, she is also a super nice and friendly person and has become a customer and huge fan of my brand. What more could you want! .

Working with Petra has been a fantastic experience. She has walked us through the entire google marketing process, worked within our budget, kept us up to date with the progress and sits down with us at the end of each month to explain how our ads are tracking. We couldn’t recommend Petra more, she is extremely accommodating and always has time to answer any questions we have along the way.
