Today I wanted to go into when it would be a good idea to use Search-based Google Ads (eg Search and Shopping) for your business.

Certainly, if you sell products from your website you should be using Google Ads as long as people are searching for those products and they are not too commoditized. This is especially the case if people may be searching by brand names or other terms that you can match specifically.

Another reason for investing in Google Ads, one you might not have thought of, is if you have a business name made up of generic words that you don’t rank well for organically. If someone in your target market searches for you by business name and they can’t find you on Google then you should invest in Google Ads to get your name to the top of the page.

If you’re looking for leads from your website rather than selling products directly you may also want to use Google Ads, but you want to ensure your overall conversion value per user is high enough. You do want to cover the cost of your ads or at the very least break even on them in the first sale unless you’re very comfortable with the long term value of that lead.

Another reason you might want to invest in Google Ads is if you are after a highly targeted remarketing list.

On the other hand there are several scenarios when you would not want to use Google Ads. Learn more in today’s video!

Well, I hope that is really helpful. I hope that you are able to make some decisions now about whether you should go ahead with the Google Ads campaign or not.

There’s no exact science for a lot of these things — there are some websites where they will roll out a Google Ads campaign and it will just go gangbusters and immediately result in a five to ten times ROI and there are other websites where Google Ads can really fall flat. It doesn’t fit in to every single business circumstance so don’t try to apply it in every case.

Well, I hope you’re having a wonderful day today and I will speak to you again soon.

Hi Petra, Hope you are well, I checked out the Google Analytics and all I can say is AWESOME. You have essentially doubled her revenue in a month and the Google Ads seem to be popping off!

Your attention to detail is beyond what I had expected. The detail of the data is incredible. The best part though was to learn the profile demographic - which is very different to whom I think I've been trying to target through social.

Petra not only provided a solid overview of GTM set up and event tracking, she also provided many tips on best practice, and answered the questions that I didn't even know to ask!

Petra is patient, fun to work with, and her analytical programming mind is hell bent on finding the BEST solution to any data, analytics or tracking problem.

Our main purpose for generating these reports is about findings out information that will curb our strategy. The Audience Engagement Report provided us with new findings about our audience. We implemented new marketing elements based on those findings and they have increased sales.

I have been working with Petra for over a year now after changing from a much larger digital marketing provider and I could not be more pleased with the service and results my business is achieving.

With my previous providers I felt disconnected with limited communication. Petra on the other hand provides me with knowledge and information in a language I can understand that helps me make informed decisions not just about digital marketing but also my e-commerce business as a whole.

Petra has helped me navigate seasonal drops in trade creating a strategy that helped us grow and establish a healthy position in the market. It is an absolute joy to work with someone who loves what they do. I have complete confidence in recommending Petra to anyone considering e-commerce digital marketing, she is efficient, trusted and a true professional.
