Three Tactics For A Successful AdWords Campaign

Sep 3, 2008
All over the Internet, marketers are singing the praises of Adwords. They hold out assurances that they can help budding entrepreneurs to make 100's of dollars working only 3-4 hours a day. Truly the lazy man's way of making money! But hold on did we mention lazy? Perhaps there is some truth in this. The actual fact is that Adwords has great tutorials making it easy to use. If the real truth were known, all those "would be entrepreneurs" who paid their hard earned money to the "experts," could have got all this information for free from these tutorials on the site.

Here are 3 ways to make a successful Adwords campaign:

1. Keywords will be your first concern. In reality this will be critical to Adwords campaign success. In fact without good keywords your campaign cannot be productive. A fine mix of targeted keywords to bring in sales, and broad based ones to draw traffic is required.

Search engines will not give you any sympathy, you will be paying for clicks regardless of how well they may or may not be performing. Bear in mind that an ad based around a popular keyword can bring a lot of traffic but few if any sales. This is fairly common as the vast majority of marketers will just go to the search engine database and dig out popular keywords, and disregard the fact that these keywords are not targeted to their special market.

Keywords are not easy to find and select, but Adwords has the answer to your problems. They have many tutorials and resources to assist you in your search for the perfect keywords. You can find some of the finest resources around when you go to www.adwords.google.com

2. It is important for you to bid high enough to place you in a top position. Given the fact that most searchers are looking for instant gratification, they will rarely look beyond the first 5-10 pages, of their search results, before trying a second keyword.

This is the reason that it is critical for you to make sure your ad is shown in the first 5-10 pages. This is because search engines do not position ads according to "first come first serve." Instead the ad with the highest bid will get the highest position. You will need to carefully budget ads so that you never run out of money. It is pointless spending money on premier positions and not having enough money to sustain your ad position. Search engines protect their customers from incurring losses by allowing caps to be put on ads. Of course if you go beyond this cap your ad will be pulled.

3. Management of your campaign is important. An ad may look good in theory but nobody can predict how it will perform in the open market. It is critical to the success of your campaign that you pay attention to every detail. Be prepared to make fast changes to save your campaign.

Now you know! Without having to pay $54.99 to the "experts" you have all the points you need for a successful AdWords campaign. Now the responsibility of using this knowledge is in your hands.
