Jetzt beginnt der aufwändigste Teil der Konkurrenzanalyse: Sie müssen die Informationen beschaffen, die Sie laut Schritt 2 benötigen. Hierbei kommt viel manuelle Recherchearbeit auf Sie zu. Glücklicherweise gibt es viele Informationsquellen, die Sie überwiegend sogar kostenfrei nutzen können. Einige Ansatzpunkte für Ihre Recherche finden Sie in unserem Artikel zur Findung von Markt- und Branchendaten. Weitere Quellen, um Informationen für die Wettbewerbsanalyse zu finden, sind:
Suchmaschinenoptimierung hat das Ziel bei relevanten Suchbegriffen mit relevanten Seiten auf guten Positionen in den relevanten Suchmaschinen vertreten zu sein. Diese Suchmaschinen können zum Beispiel abseits von Google auch Suchmaschinen, wie Bing, Yahoo oder  Yandex sein, aber auch  spezialisierte Suchmaschinen, wie Amazon (Produktsuche), Indeed (Stellensuche) oder Trivago (Hotelsuche) sein. Die Darstellung des in den Suchmaschinen zu Verfügung stehenden Textes (Snippet) soll dabei den Nutzer zu einem Klick auf das Ergebnis motivieren mit dem Ziel die Erwartung des Nutzers in Hinsicht auf inhaltliche Übereinstimmung zwischen Suchbegriff, Text und Inhalt der Webseite zu erfüllen. Voraussetzung ist der klare und eindeutige Zugang zur gesamten relevanten Website und optimal für Nutzer aufbereitet, und das unabhängig vom Device (mobilfeundlich).

From my experience, you don’t need complex algorithms to save money with paid search. You don’t need a crazy PPC management tool to trim down costs for campaigns. You need only employ one of 3 core paid search strategies in order to succeed in your PPC campaigns: 1) Maximize your budget, 2) Improve Branding by showing up in a top position and 3) Maximize your profit potential.

Naturally, we all want to be successful. We want to know that the money we are putting into paid search, social, and display—or the investment we are managing on behalf of our clients—is being utilized in the most efficient way. That’s why we love data, why we pore over ad reports, why we diligently test new bidding strategies and messaging, and work to communicate all of that to the higher-ups with whom we engage.

Local plumbers can’t provide their services even three counties over (let alone three states over), and a juicy burger wouldn’t exactly hold up well in express shipping. Some businesses rely only on local customers. As a result, they’ll want their PPC campaigns only to appear in the feeds and searches of users who are within a set distance from their home b3ase.


Ever heard the saying that a picture is worth 1,000 words? Well, a video is worth 1.8 million, and YouTube is the best place to promote your video ad to an engaged audience. One of the most popular YouTube ad formats, TrueView ads, play before other videos on the site and allow users the option to skip after five seconds (and you don’t have to pay if a viewer skips your ad!). Since there is less competition on YouTube compared to other search engines, your brand has a massive opportunity to reach and convert a ton of consumers across a variety of different demographics.
Chris Gale, Client Services Director at Odyssey Mobile Interaction says: "As location-based services continue to grow, more of our clients are exploring proximity marketing via mobile. When applying 'geo-targeting' to our clients’ mobile marketing campaigns, it enables us to reach the right audience, in the right place, at the right time. By being able to add a deeper layer of relevance to the message, our clients have experienced higher levels of engagement amongst users."
Once your campaign is established you must review the analytics data and look for ways to optimise the campaign. Setting clear goals and measurements are absolutely critical to allow the campaign to be reviewed against each stated goal, in which you will consider ad performance, keyword performance, ad placement performance, campaign structure, and campaign targeting. This chapter highlights how to analyse and optimise your PPC campaign for success.
It doesn’t take a marketing expert to know that marketing is a complex endeavor. With so many moving pieces, it can be hard to decide what you should focus on. What mediums do you prioritize? How do you narrow down your target audience? How do you rank better on search engines? Should you have a social media campaign? And if so, which social media platform should drive that campaign? And where in the world do you even begin to dig into this stuff?
Don’t base your whole strategy on chasing volume though. Pay attention to the competition column in the keyword research tools. Even though these tools use pay-per-click (PPC) data to determine competitiveness and suggested bid, you can still extrapolate this data for organic search. High competition and suggested bid is a strong indication that there’s money to be made off of these keywords, as advertisers generally won’t bid high CPCs on poorly performing keywords.

Starting small will also help you devise a repeatable process that can then be applied across a wider range of search terms as your list grows over time. If you really want to go pro, keyword management tools like Moz Keyword Explorer or SEM Rush’s Keyword Magic Tool can help you streamline this entire process and will allow you to create lists that include hundreds of keywords. 
If you aren’t aware of buzzwords in your industry or the terms your potential audience will search to try to find you, you need to do some more research or you will definitely be losing people. In Jerry’s case, he has office space for rent as individual desks in a common room. He needs to realize that the term his potential audience will use to search for that is ‘coworking’. A five-minute keywords change would provide Jerry with a clearer vision of his website’s performance and a greater likelihood of being found through search. Check out the revised keywords below:

Ad extension provides extra benefits for your PPC advertising. Use these extensions to enhance your ad and to show additional information with your ad, like an address, phone number, store rating, or additional webpage links. Ad extension ensures high CTR because they make your ad more relevant and prominent. It also improve your quality score. Google says “If two competing ads have the same bid and quality, then the ad with the more relevant extensions will most likely appear in a higher position than the other.”

Die Wettbewerbsanalyse erlaubt so hilfreiche Rückschlüsse auf den eigenen Markenwert und darauf, ob unser Unternehmen bereits über ein USP (unique selling point oder Alleinstellungsmerkmal) verfügt bzw. die Chance hat, dieses in naher Zukunft zu erreichen. Dazu erfahren wir, was Außenstehende über uns und unsere Produkte und Dienstleistungen denken. Besonders wichtig ist hier natürlich die Wahrnehmung der von uns definierten Zielgruppe.


Identifikation der aktuellen Strategie: Es wird eine Analyse der Strategie angefertigt, die von den betrachteten Konkurrenten aktuell umgesetzt wird. Solange keine zwingenden Gründe vorliegen, die aktuelle Strategie zu ändern, ist es vernünftig anzunehmen, dass ein Unternehmen die aktuelle Strategie beibehält. Daraus ergibt sich eine deutliche Betonung der realisierten Strategie (im Gegensatz zu strategischen Plänen).
I always tell people to think of their site as a pyramid. Your brand is at the very top, below that is your cornerstone content for your “head: keywords, the keywords you care about the most, below those are dozens – if not hundreds or thousands – of pages, strengthening your site’s structure. I wrote about site structure & SEO over 3 years ago but it still rings true. We wrote about both these topics in our ebook too.
Geofencing hinges on the use of a “fence”—a designated area that a marketer sets. Where geo-targeting allows you to get more granular and include or exclude certain users in the target area (based on demographic, for instance), geofencing is a bit more of a blunt object in that you’ll capture all users who move into a certain area. The purpose of creating a geofence is to target communications in a given zone, in a given context—just like geo-targeting, but with greater accuracy. Retail operators who want to catch the attention of shoppers as they pass by a store, for example, might use geofencing.

It's important to check that you have a mix of head terms and long-tail terms because it'll give you a keyword strategy that's well balanced with long-term goals and short-term wins. That's because head terms are generally searched more frequently, making them often (not always, but often) much more competitive and harder to rank for than long-tail terms. Think about it: Without even looking up search volume or difficulty, which of the following terms do you think would be harder to rank for?
The answers remain to be seen, but there’s one no brainer in all of this; one best practice that can dictate any brand’s choices around location-based marketing: ask your users. Explain why you want to target them, tell them how you plan to use their data, and make some commitments about how you won’t use it. Ask for feedback via quick polls, or consider doing some market research on your audience. See what your users most want. Then respect that.

We must clearly identify our objectives for the campaign and tie the campaign objectives to business objectives. Your objectives could include raising awareness, increasing engagement, generating conversions, and customer retention. Your objectives will need to be tailored to your specific business and you will want to map your objectives to a typical marketing funnel. This chapter highlights how to identify your objectives to measure success.
The basic content strategy you’ve put together—what you want to create, and how—should give you a good place to start. Now it’s time to break that strategy into potential topics and keywords to cover on your channel. Once you have a topic, like “dog training” or “styling a scarf” you can start to test the relevant words and phrases you think customers will search to find answers.
Once you have collected a good amount of data, it’s time to sift through it and see what’s working, what’s not, and sharpen up your money-making machine. Like I mentioned, Amazon’s advertising platform is very straightforward and simple. This means that the levers you can pull for optimization are more limited than what Facebook Ads, Google AdWords, Bing Ads offers.
You can target any keyword with your PPC campaigns and the benefit of it is (especially when launching a new product) is that you get the opportunity to appear at the top of the search results as a sponsored ad for the keywords that you are looking to target. Whereas it can take a little while to climb the organic search results for the same keyword. Plus, running PPC campaigns boosts your sales velocity, which also helps to improve your organic ranking over time.

Die Konkurrenzanalyse erstellen Sie, indem Sie die gewonnenen Daten aufbereiten. Ziel soll die Bewertung der vorher festgelegten Kriterien nach einem Punktesystem sein. Je umfassender die gewonnenen Informationen sind, desto sicherer können Sie Bewertungen daraus ableiten. Achten Sie dabei besonders auf die Stärken und Schwächen Ihrer Wettbewerber.

xAd’s first step was to expand its use of location data. “We wanted to move beyond just the where, and use location data to define the who and the what of audience targeting,” Monica Ho, xAd’s CMO, told GeoMarketing in 2015. After all, while a consumer’s proximity to a Denny’s can be significant, targeting someone who has been to and enjoys their local Denny’s will often prove more successful — whether or not they happen to be near the restaurant at the time they see the ad.

Erkennen Sie, welches Unternehmen in direkter Konkurrenz zu Ihnen steht und welcher Betrieb lediglich koexistiert. Lernen Sie die Strategien Ihrer Wettbewerber zu lesen und deren Erfolgschancen zuverlässig einzuschätzen. Richten Sie dabei Ihr Augenmerk auch auf die Reaktionen Ihrer Konkurrenten, wenn es um die Initiativen gemeinsamer Mitbewerber oder um generelle Veränderungen innerhalb der Branche geht.
Example 1: Say your business focuses on skin care. Your keywords might center around the idea: “how proper skin care can improve your health.” You would then begin looking for a keyword theme that sums up the idea of skin care relating to health. The takeaway message is that your business has a goal, and the right keywords will relay this goal to site visitors in a clear, concise way.
This chapter will discuss how to best structure your campaign within Google AdWords. These basic building blocks are campaigns and ad groups contained within those campaigns. How you structure this will depend upon your business and marketing and the main takeaway here is that there is no single way to structure a campaign. Just be mindful of what matters when it comes to advertising and measuring the results of your campaign.
SEO is a continuous process; you can’t stop SEO works after reaching your goals which can first page in a keyword. Because you can’t sustain your position for a long time. There are three important factors of a SEO implementation which are knowledge, experience and time. Hence, SEO can be implemented by all of your rivals without any extra cost. If you stop working on SEO, your rivals can easily take your place. Furthermore, Google changes its algorithm periodically, so you have to be well prepared to those changes to be able to show your website to the search engine. In summary, you can think SEO as a continuous competition; you should be always well prepared to use these free marketing tools.
This is another great way to position yourself as a “go to” for information within a community. Surround your campaigns or newsletters around what’s going on in a specific area. If a town that you have a lot of subscribers from holds an antique fair once a year, use it in your marketing campaign. In your newsletter for that area, include tips and tricks on how to bargain prices, articles about the best booths from the year before and sales surrounding your own products that would speak to that target audience.

For your Amazon PPC campaigns you should calculate total ad spend by attributed sales, to find out how much you are spending on advertising, on average, to gain one sale. As you said, you need to ensure that you understand what your maximum ACoS can be before you break even and then start losing money per sale, and optimize your campaigns accordingly. This will vary from product to product.


These days, organic SEO is all about creating the highest quality content that is actionable and informative around a specific topic. While your content will no doubt contain keywords referencing said topic in places like heading tags and body copy, search engines are well-versed at filling in gaps about content topics without needing to be bludgeoned by keywords. Keyword research can never—and should never—be used as a crutch for poor content quality. However, exercises like those described below, can play very important roles in helping you define and measure your content strategy as well as mapping your content topics to real users’ needs. Words matter. 
In internet marketing and geomarketing, the delivery of different content based on the geographical geolocation and other personal information is automated.[3] A good example is the Ace Hardware website at www.acehardware.com. The company utilizes geolocation software to power the “My Local Ace” section of its website. Based on a site visitor’s location, the website's online locator service can show the visitor how many stores are in their area, as well as a city-level locator map to help the customer find the store closest to their address.[4]

Nachdem Sie Ihre Konkurrenten besser kennengelernt haben und realistischer einschätzen können, kommt es auf die Ableitung der eigenen Strategien und Maßnahmen an. Gründer erkennen auf der Grundlage der Wettbewerbsanalyse, worauf sie beim Markteintritt achten müssen und welche Chancen ihr Angebot hat. Etablierte Unternehmen nehmen eventuell Kurskorrekturen vor, setzen neue Schwerpunkte oder ziehen sich aus bestimmten Bereichen zurück.
Nur wer die Strategien der Wettbewerber kennt, hat auch die Möglichkeit, den eigenen Handlungsspielraum sicher und zuverlässig abschätzen zu können. Schließlich beeinflussen die Produkte und Serviceleistungen unserer schärfsten Konkurrenten auch die Anspruchshaltung unserer Kunden ganz erheblich. Darüber hinaus sollten wir das Aggressionspotenzial unserer Wettbewerber in Erfahrung bringen.

People don’t go to Amazon to window shop and discover ideas. They know what they want, go to Amazon http://amazon.com , and type in their desired product. Amazon will return the products that it deems most likely to satisfy the user’s desire. These are the “organic” results. Then there are the “paid” search results, which you will see mixed in with the organic results, and sometimes in the right column and below the organic results:

I am a single Father jumping into my long time dreams this year. I have spent 2017 getting educated in “money and wealth”. I am so appreciative I had stumbled across your online case study to help me launch into my journey and financial goals. I have sourced a product and I am a week away from using jumpsend and PPC to market my listing. I have read and studied your advice on building a solid campaign. I just want to reach out and give a great big thank you for all your accurate and relevant content you have given me. Because of you, I have written goal to leave my Retail management job on my 50th birthday in November. Your information and products will give me freedom to spend more quality time with my two kids. Thank You for answering my prayers and may God bless you with all your dreams!
Paid search strategy involves up-front and ongoing attention. Many PPC campaigns never realize their potential because companies fail to complete the last step in this six-step strategic process. Testing is all-important to every AdWords strategy, because no matter how carefully the first five steps are completed, user behavior is never 100% predictable. A campaign that appears to everyone as rock solid in theory can still fall short, and sometimes, campaigns scribbled out on a cocktail napkin generate terrific sales leads. But testing always leads to continuous campaign improvement — provided testing adheres to best practices and meaningful results can be collected. Make sure you budget accordingly and hire a PPC firm with documented testing expertise.
Eine solche Zu-Fuß-Recherche bietet sich immer dann an, wenn du Laufkundschaft ansprechen willst. Dann ist es sinnvoller, sich in der Nachbarschaft umzuschauen, als am Schreibtisch Marktanalysen zu studieren, weil du so direkt mitbekommst, was die anderen auszeichnet und wer dort hingeht. Du kannst sogar mit den Kunden ins Gespräch kommen und aus erster Hand erfahren, worauf sie besonderen Wert legen, was sie gut finden und was aus ihrer Sicht besser gelöst werden könnte.
PPC or Pay per click advertising is an Internet advertising model which is used to generate clicks to your website. It is the way of directing traffic to your website using relevant keywords related to your product or services. It is a paid traffic and an advertiser will pay an amount to the publisher each time the ads get clicked. Pay Per Click or PPC is one of the effective strategies applied in the search engine marketing campaign. Learn more about PPC Campaign and it’s benefits. If your ad campaign is not well optimized and you are not following PPC best practices, your ROI will be impacted. It is important to spend some time in planning your ad campaign.

Die Wettbewerbsanalyse ist Teil der Marktanalyse. Als Gründer, der einen Businessplan erarbeitet, kommst du nicht darum herum, dich genauer mit dem Markt zu beschäftigen, in den du eintreten willst. Genau genommen untersuchst du zweierlei: Den Markt samt seiner Bedingungen und deine Konkurrenz. Diese Analyse hilft dir vor allem, Marktpotenziale und deine eigenen Erfolgsaussichten realistisch zu bewerten. In diesem Artikel erfährst du mehr über ihre wichtigsten Bestandteile, über Herangehensweisen und wie du deine Ergebnisse sinnvoll verwendest.
Hey Israel, that certainly would make sense…..the most important thing to do is focus on the relevancy of the search term to your product, with the key question being: “is this customer likely to purchase my product?” of course you don’t know for certain, but unlike Google AdWords or Facebook, you are not trying to get impressions to build brand awareness, you only want a sale. you can also use the Keywords section (up to 5000 characters) to target these keywords which are you are not certain about. I’d recommend combing through your Search Term Report to see which searches actually result in a sale. Hope this helps!
Meist kennen Sie den Wettbewerb recht gut und gehen schon mit Vermutungen in diese Phase hinein. Untermauern Sie diese jetzt mit konkreten Fakten oder – je nachdem – widerlegen Sie sie. Bedenken Sie: Es geht nicht darum, Ihr bereits erworbenes Wissen über den Wettbewerb zu bestätigen, sondern es zu prüfen, zu hinterfragen und im Idealfall zu erweitern.
Together, Google and the marketing world are pursuing the next stage in the evolution of PPC advertising. The main points they share? Details and demographics. Marketers who understand the importance of geotargeting advertising will be ready to seize a golden opportunity to connect with consumers. Here are five ways to become a geotargeting master and get a head start on one of the best paid advertising methods.
Once your campaign is established you must review the analytics data and look for ways to optimise the campaign. Setting clear goals and measurements are absolutely critical to allow the campaign to be reviewed against each stated goal, in which you will consider ad performance, keyword performance, ad placement performance, campaign structure, and campaign targeting. This chapter highlights how to analyse and optimise your PPC campaign for success.
For example, say you have a clinic in Des Moines, Iowa. Someone looking at your social media advertising in California isn’t likely to come to your clinic. A geotargeted campaign would help you find social media users that need your clinic and live in your area. And if you have multiple locations, you can run geotargeted social media ads in each area where you want to increase your customer base.
Wenn du ausreichend recherchiert hast, besitzt du genügend Informationen, um diese anhand deiner Fragestellung auszuwerten. Der letzte Schritt der Wettbewerbsanalyse erfordert natürlich Kreativität: Du musst dich entscheiden, wie du auf die entdeckten Strategien reagierst. Diese Entscheidung kann dir niemand abnehmen. Du hast aber eine belastbare Grundlage, die dir eine konkrete Einschätzung deiner Erfolgsaussichten erlaubt.
Using the same keyword phrase over and over within a web page or blog post can actually hurt your ranking score in Google, which can perceive it as spammy. That wasn't your intention, but maybe you just couldn't think of a better word to use in its place. The Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI) Keyword Generator is like a thesaurus for SEO-minded content marketers. It offers keyword suggestions that are semantically linked to your main keyword, meaning they would naturally come up in conversation. Incorporating these keywords into your post allows you to add variety while still retaining SEO power. 
Nachdem Sie im ersten Schritt analysiert haben, welche und wie viele Ihrer Produkte durch die Konkurrenz angeboten werden, sollten Sie jetzt einen aktuellen Preisvergleich zur Konkurrenz ziehen und diese Ergebnisse analysieren. Durch die Analyse der Produktpreise Ihrer Wettbewerber können Sie unterschiedliche Fragen beantworten, zum Beispiel auf welchem Niveau Preise gesetzt werden können, ob Ihre Preise für die gewählte Positionierungsstrategie zu hoch oder zu niedrig angesetzt wurden oder ob Ihre Preise überhaupt wettbewerbsfähig sind.
If you are fortunate enough to have access to lead revenue data within AdWords, either by Salesforce linking or some other conversion import means, there are even more options available to you. You may not yet have discovered, or may not yet have taken advantage of the “All conv value / cost” column in AdWords. Available at the campaign, ad group, keyword, and search term level, this metric serves as a close substitute for ROAS, easily accessible within the interface.
Google considers your landing page quality as one of the important factor to determine ad quality score. Your landing page is where user redirects when they click your ad. Landing pages with poor content or under construction website pages will give bad experience to your users. Users will not buy from you if you are landing them on an irrelevant page. A well optimize landing page should have complete information about your product and call to action buttons like “Subscribe here” or “Buy Now”. If you are creating multiple ads for your product then you should optimize your landing pages for each ad copy.
Using SKAGs will help you improve your overall quality score, which will also improve the effectiveness of your PPC campaigns. In order to get the best possible quality score, you need to make sure that your user experience is consistent. For instance, your ad, keyword, and landing page should all match and seamlessly flow together. This is why using just one keyword per ad group is so helpful. It allows you to ensure that your ad and landing page perfectly align with the ad keyword. If you use multiple keywords, especially more than 15, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to thoroughly represent all those keywords in your ad and landing page.

Keyword research is a time consuming and continuous activity. Create your list of core keywords at the time of campaign planning and you should constantly refine and expand your keyword list for long-tail, low cost and highly relevant keywords. Another important step in keyword research is to review high cost, under performing keywords. Remove these keywords from your list.


According to Lathan Fritz, founder of Amerisales, geotargeting doesn’t have to mean getting down to the local level. Larger companies can use geotargeting on a regional basis to locate specific audiences for their marketing campaigns. He knows this firsthand from helping one of his clients, an e-commerce company that sells shipping supplies. Fritz’s company conducts national campaigns for this client, ranking it for search engine optimization terms in Google and running national Facebook campaigns.
For example, within the HubSpot Blogging App, users will find as-you-type SEO suggestions. This helpful inclusion serves as a checklist for content creators of all skill levels. HubSpot customers also have access to the Page Performance App, Sources Report, and the Keyword App. The HubSpot Marketing Platform will provide you with the tools you need to research keywords, monitor their performance, track organic search growth, and diagnose pages that may not be fully optimized.
