The benefit of clearly describing a strategy for your PPC campaign is that it can inform the creative, particularly when it comes to building PPC adverts with our various elements: header, ad copy, ad extensions – where does everything go? Great advertising is built on great creative, so spend as much time crafting solid messages as you do on the strategic elements of the campaign. This chapter looks at how you can craft the best ad creative to communicate your message.
Um herauszufinden, was Verbraucher wollen und was sie dazu bewegt, in einen bestimmten Laden zu gehen, muss ein Markt seine Kunden befragen. Was muss ich liefern, damit meine Kunden mir treu bleiben? Was haben andere Supermärkte, was ich nicht habe, und wie wahrscheinlich ist es, dass meine Kunden dorthin abwandern? Grundlage für die Beantwortung all dieser Fragen ist das Erstellen eines passenden Fragebogen.

It’s actually ideal to use just one keyword per ad group. This is known as a single keyword ad group (SKAG). Try using this strategy, even for large accounts, with 80 percent of keywords that get or you expect to get the most traffic. You should most definitely employ this strategy for keywords that are getting the dreaded “Rarely shown due to low quality score” warning.
Twitter is also a great place to get guidance about what's popular as it relates to your search terms. Just type a word or phrase into the search bar and see what trending topics come up. You can also use social media monitoring tools like Hootsuite, which allows you to create a stream based on a particular phrase and monitor mentions of it, or TweetReach, which gives you a similar quick analysis. 
Say your e-commerce site focuses on college students. Target promotions to local coffee shops within a couple miles of your store front that students frequent. Students that bring in a receipt from the coffee shop to your brick and mortar store get a special discount. You can push this email campaign to users that are within a 10 mile radius of the coffee shop and your store.
Another thing you need to do in order to maximize the effectiveness of your PPC campaigns is increase the quality and relevancy of your landing page content and user experience. These two elements have a big influence on whether or not leads will convert between your PPC ads and landing pages. A poorly designed or irrelevant landing page is a sure way to tank conversion rates.
They differ in many aspects, from gender to age; from organic to paid; from 1024×768 to 320×480 and onwards. More significantly though, people arrive to your site from across the world: from different countries and languages, different currencies and climates, and a whole assortment of cultural expectations. Hence, even if you have a “.com” English only site, you may very well be an international business by default.

It can be easy to go down a deep rabbit hole with this process. There are thousands of blog posts with helpful hints (you’re reading one right now), and hundreds of tools that can potentially improve or otherwise streamline the process of researching keywords and devising a smart keyword strategy. That’s why we advise you keep things simple for starters. You can always layer on complexity as you gain experience. More than anything, good SEO efforts revolve around creating content experiments, measuring them, then doing more of what works and less of what doesn’t. Simpler is often better, especially if you are resource constrained. A good content governance strategy should dictate that you take on only as much as your resources allow.
The use of semantic search has completely changed the way we perform modern search queries today. A decade ago, people stuck with what was short and simple. If they wanted to find the best pizza places in New York City, they would type in “Pizza New York.” However, with Google’s Hummingbird update and the algorithmic improvements to semantic searches, people now are more inclined to type in “Where is the best pizza place in New York City.”

If you take a look at our recent Million Dollar Case Study recap, Greg shows how he is investing more heavily at the start in our product Jungle Snugs, even when the ACoS is more than break even. Also keep in mind, this money is being taken out of your top line revenue from Amazon, rather than cash being removed from your bank account. So we see it more as an early investment from our top line to ensure success later down the line.
7. Use a keyword research brief to share for unified messaging. The final tip is to attempt to break down the silos that are typical in medium to large organizations and share with them enough keyword data so they can be encouraged to use your targeted keywords in their respective messaging. One way to do this is to develop what I call a keyword research brief. This is simply a document that is like an executive summary of keyword research for your top keywords. This document should be no more than one to two pages. It should be a quick read. See an example of this below.
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.

A lot goes into building a winning PPC campaign: from researching and selecting the right keywords, to organizing those keywords into well-organized campaigns and ad groups, to setting up PPC landing pages that are optimized for conversions. Search engines reward advertisers who can create relevant, intelligently targeted pay-per-click campaigns by charging them less for ad clicks. If your ads and landing pages are useful and satisfying to users, Google charges you less per click, leading to higher profits for your business. So if you want to start using PPC, it’s important to learn how to do it right.

Just like in your title, you’ll want to prioritize using your keyword at the beginning of your description, although it doesn’t have to be the first word in the sentence according to YouTube. This is a good signal to YouTube that yes, your video is actually about that keyword, but it can also help users decide they’ve found what they’re looking for and that they should watch your video.

Bluetooth technology is less expensive than GPS and WiFi. However, while bluetooth makes beacons great, it’s also their downside, as many folks keep bluetooth turned off when they’re moving around in the world. To understand the tech in greater detail, Estimote, a beacon vendor, does a good job of explaining the physics and math of how beacons work.
2. Define how will you measure success. This is probably one of the most important questions to answer before you begin any campaign. As a consultant, this is one of the first questions I ask a potential client. The answer as you might expect is page one ranking. If your objective is branding only, then this is fine, however, if like most organizations yours is a conversion strategy, then I would caution you to not be so short-sighted. Your objective should be how many conversions you want to achieve for each keyword. Top ranking will help you with visibility, which is a good thing, but if you bring in traffic from that keyword and those visitors do not engage and convert, then why bother? You must set your sights on keywords that convert.
Along with understanding how your potential customers are searching for your company and/or product online, you also need to decide what part of the sales process you want to target. Are you looking to start a prospecting campaign that attracts users at the very beginning of the process, and then convert them later via email marketing or retargeting? Or do you want your website to be shown in front of in-market searchers who are looking to buy right away?
There are some general negative keywords that should be added to almost any campaign, such as “free”, “jobs” “training”, as people searching for these terms are not likely to be looking to buy your product. Keywords like “review” and “opinions” can also be useful, as they will reduce the number of window shoppers who aren’t necessarily looking to buy now. But you’ll also want to research negative keywords specific to your business or audience. For example, if you are an optometrist, you’ll want to use words like “wine”, as you aren’t looking for customers in search of “wine glasses.
…Well, this is a best practices post, right? It may seem obvious to use the highest converting ad formats in your PPC campaigns to boost their conversion rate, but many marketers don’t actually know what these optimized ads look like—nor that they can do the optimizing themselves even after their ads go live! In this next section, we’ll break down a few important ad formats and options that you should have on your radar and use to maximize your conversion potential:
Geo-Targeting allows you to run different campaigns in different locations. Your ads might be served all over the world and vary in their marketing message according to the segment and audience that you approach. Is the marketing message on your site the same as the geo-targeted ad? Experiment with sending traffic from a geo-targeted banner to a geo-targeted landing page (in language, currency, offer, etc) and to a generic page – what converts better?
Beacons are little physical objects (under two square inches, in most cases) that can be placed in desired locations. Their sole purpose is to detect you, or more specifically, your device, as you move into their range. The beacons themselves don’t send content. Like geofencing, a signal is triggered when you’re near one, and a server sends a push, text, in-app message, or even an email (though currently, that’s a less likely application for beacons).
Was die Darstellung im Businessplan betrifft: Es ist auf keinen Fall sinnvoll und notwendig, eine vollständige Wettbewerbsanalyse inklusive sämtlicher Kennzahlen, Strategien, Stärken und Schwächen vorzulegen. Ziel deiner Untersuchungen ist es herauszufinden, wie du dich mit deinem Unternehmen am besten positionierst, um erfolgreich durchstarten zu können. Insofern reicht es völlig aus, lediglich die wichtigsten Erkenntnisse und deine Schlussfolgerungen in übersichtlicher Form deinem Businessplan hinzuzufügen.
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.

Mit relevanten Suchmaschinen sind nicht nur Google oder Bing gemeint. Neben dem “Hauptindex” von Google können auch vertikale Suchdienste, wie Google News, Google Bilder oder Google Maps (Local SEO) relevant sein. Aber auch Suchsysteme, wie die Optimierung für Amazon (Amazon SEO), jameda, Monster, Slideshare oder Youtube oder Stepstone können für die Suchmaschinenoptimierung von Bedeutung sein.
1. Bedrohung durch neue Wettbewerber: Neue Wettbewerber erhöhen den Druck auf bereits bestehende Unternehmen auf dem Markt. Je niedriger die Markteintrittsbarrieren, desto leichter können neue Wettbewerber sich auf dem Markt positionieren. Für Sie als Gründer ist es deshalb wichtig, die Eintrittsbarrieren genau zu studieren, um so die Gefahr durch neue Konkurrenten einschätzen zu können.

Nur mit einer genauen Wettbewerbsanalyse lassen sich Marktpotenziale erkunden und erkennen. Zudem ergeben sich aus der Wettbewerbsanalyse wichtige Einsichten dazu, wie man besser ist als seine Konkurrenten und wie man sich strategisch richtig im Markt positioniert. Und Marketingaktionen wie Werbung, Promotion oder Preisnachlässe können so auf die Konkurrenten abgestimmt werden, dass sie ihren Zweck der Kundengewinnung erfüllen.


Wichtiger Bestandteil der Wettbewerbsanalyse ist die Konkurrenzanalyse. Bei der Konkurrenzanalyse sammeln Sie in einem ersten Schritt Informationen zu Ihren Konkurrenten, die Sie dann aufbereiten und auswerten sollten. Die Ergebnisse Ihrer Konkurrenzanalyse (z.B. Wettbewerbsvorteile der einzelnen Wettbewerber etc.) sind dann insbesondere für die Unternehmensstrategie relevant.
