Sometimes taking a step back to think about your audience and goals can give you a new perspective. I once worked on a campaign for a theme park. We initially identified the target audience as moms living in specific states. We determined she worked full-time, so was usually online during the workday or late at night. Life was chaotic for her, so she wanted simplicity and ease.  We wanted mom to request a visitor’s kit for the park, so this was our X number of conversions goal. However, what the client really wanted was for the whole family to actually visit. After some research it became apparent that our immediate audience might be mom because she was online, but who we really needed to get excited were the kids. We designed a landing page that had a few bullets of information that mom could read quickly, but we also mentioned the cool items that would be in the visitor’s kit just for her kids. While mom was the one filling out the form, the kids were major influencers so it was important to get the kids excited too.  What was sent in the visitor’s kit was important but so was the landing page. Mom was looking at the landing page from the perspective of her kids – we needed to consider the photos and colors to make the page feel like a fun place to be. She wanted to know that it would be a place her kids would enjoy and be excited about. We needed to find a balance that would appeal to mom, encouraging her to request a visitor’s kit, while giving her the impression her kids would enjoy the experience.  By taking this new perspective, we were able to develop ad text, landing pages and a visitor’s kit that allowed us to target our entire audience rather than the single audience the analytics data pointed to.

In the US, we have worked with a fast food chain to target consumers in a specific DMA with an ad campaign which directed the consumer to a promotional microsite, where they were able to select a mobile coupon to redeem in-store.  In another campaign, a US hotel chain targeted selected states in the US where their brand is most popular, and where there is a high customer demand. The campaign enabled the client to connect geographically-targeted consumers with a direct call to action – in this case a click-to-call facility, offering a booking discount.


When they started to open these “stores”, it didn’t make sense to advertise to everyone because not everyone would be near the pop-up stores. So instead, they only advertised within a small radius of their shop. By using geo-targeting to drive traffic to their shops, they were able to save money and resources while still achieving success in their pop-up shops.
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.

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.
For example, it’s important to look at the response based on urban, suburban or rural locations. Someone living in northern Indiana may consider driving 25 miles to your store to be no big deal. Most customers or prospects could make the drive in less than half an hour and, therefore, they will visit your store. However, if the prospects live in the River North neighborhood of Chicago, they aren’t going to want to go to your store in Wrigleyville because that’s going to take 50 minutes.
It’s critically important to ensure you are collecting good data, and to do this you must correctly configure Google Analytics and Google AdWords to share data. It is important that this is customised to your reporting needs and individual objectives as you can then use that data to optimise your campaigns. This chapter outlines how to measure your campaign to enhance your PPC strategy.

I like to turn on PPC campaigns as soon as I have just a few reviews. Others may say to wait until you have 10 or more, and though it may be true that your conversion rate is higher as you have more reviews, I think it is more valuable to get a more active listing (remember that PPC campaigns often boost your organic ranking), and you can start collecting data on converting keywords so that you can also incorporate those into your listing if it makes sense.

Aus der Wettbewerbsanalyse leiten Sie Ihre Wettbewerbsstrategie ab. Dazu identifizieren Sie die Stärken und Schwächen Ihrer Konkurrenten und bringen dann die Stärken Ihres Unternehmens und Ihrer Produkte in die richtige Position. Hilfreich dafür ist die Vorlage Stärken und Schwächen des Wettbewerbers. Dabei bedenken Sie auch, wie der Konkurrent auf Ihre Aktionen reagieren könnte: Welche Ressourcen kann er ins Feld führen? Welcher Strategie-Charakter ist für ihn maßgeblich? Welche strategischen Optionen stehen ihm zur Verfügung? Wie beim Schachspiel denken Sie einige Züge voraus. Hilfreich dafür sind die Fragen aus der Vorlage Reaktionen der Wettbewerber im Markt.
The second is mobile couponing, which is being driven forward by players like Groupon, LivingSocial and Amazon. By clicking on a mobile banner, consumers can redeem coupons in-store at point of sale. Advertisers can target their campaigns to appear on the devices of any consumer browsing a mobile site or app within a given distance of one of their outlets.
To more effectively drive traffic to their stores, they pushed out a 10% discount on any in-store purchase when customers provided their email. This not only drove traffic to their new shops, it also helped them construct lists for each store that they could later use for store promotions. By targeting these specific users in areas near their stores and then promoting to in-store audiences, an e-commerce site successfully made the move to store fronts.

Wir arbeiten mit Herrn Fröhlich seit etwa einem halben Jahr zusammen und sind sehr zufrieden. Neben seiner herausragenden Kompetenz gefällt uns an der Zusammenarbeit mit Herrn Fröhlich seine Arbeitsweise. Er arbeitet sehr strukturiert und geht die Dinge grundsätzlich an. Da gibt es keine Schnellschüsse, die nur Zeit und Geld kosten und danach schnell verpuffen.

Not every keyword is worth ranking for. This may seem obvious, but it’s an important lesson for search marketers to learn. Often times we can get caught falling down the rabbit hole or chasing the long tail dragon to boost our rankings without thinking of the time and resources it takes to rank for these terms. Especially for highly competitive, high-volume keywords – it simply isn’t worth the time and effort it might take to get onto page one.
It works like this – if there is an IP address the company wants to locate, they ping ‎it from a few of their servers, for which they already know the location.  A ping is ‎just a way to test if a computer can connect, and how long it takes to do so, but ‎doesn’t transmit any meaningful data.  Then, by looking at the time it takes each ‎server to connect, it can establish a shared point or origin, and thereby physically ‎locate the user.  It uses the public IP locations to validate their approach and check ‎for anomalies in network latency which would lead to bad data.  ‎
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. 
Should l raise my manual exact ad to $3bid and raise my budget to $200 to make sure it is enough through the day and run for 10-14 days to be shown on page 1 first sponsored ad spot? Or should l add more main keywords which converts and try to raise them all together at the same time? This strategy looks like l will collect more sales, but it also scatters my sales through different keywords and my organic listing will go up slower but for more keywords.
Die Wettbewerbsanalyse zeigt uns auch, warum Kunden bei unseren Mitbewerbern kaufen und wo wir den Hebel ansetzen können, den Verbraucher an uns zu binden und eventuell verloren gegangene Potenziale zurückzuholen. Um uns der eigenen Wettbewerbsfähigkeit zuverlässig bewusst zu werden, müssen wir natürlich auch wissen, was die Konkurrenz in Zukunft vorhat.
In teoria, una maggiore offerta garantirà la pubblicazione degli annunci PPC più in alto, ma Google prende anche in considerazione non solo il prezzo dell'offerta, ma anche la pertinenza della parola chiave con la pagina di destinazione dell'annuncio. Secondo i nostri esperti PPC, dal punto di vista strategico è importante che il contenuto della vostra pagina, quello dell'annuncio siano pertinenti con le parole chiave.
Because of our idea that you should have one brand and several (hundreds) keywords, we’re not big fans of keyword domains at Yoast either. By using a keyword domain you bind your companies past, present and future to a single keyword. And with the abundance of new top level domains (TLDs) now available, you’ll have a very hard time buying all of the TLDs with the same keyword to keep out the competition.
One of the major promises of enterprise PPC management tools is that they employ bidding strategies that will save you all kinds of money by trimming down your cost per click through intelligent bid algorithms. These algorithms often let you adjust bids by just about any variable available in the AdWords/Bing API’s (you can even create calculated metrics) and adjust bids according to these rules in order to reduce costs. What they usually don’t tell you is the best way to set them up or provide algorithms to you that work out of the box. They give you the fishing line, but don’t always teach you to fish. They are a tool, and what we need is a PPC strategy.
Competitive analysis. Sometimes, a stakeholder identifies the competition in the PPC space incorrectly. Competitive analysis helps me learn who the competition actually is and what they are doing to be successful in terms of bidding, keyword targeting and creative messaging. The competitive analysis helps me determine how aggressive I need to be in my account management policies in order to successfully compete in the marketplace.
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.

In 2016, we used ROAS to reduce non-converting spend and improve overall profitability. At the end of the second quarter, CPA was nearly 18% over our $20 goal. To address this, we examined our highest CPA campaigns and noted that one campaign (“Campaign 1”) was at nearly twice our CPA goal for the past year, but had also generated the most revenue relative to its spend. On the other hand, we could see that our poorest converting campaign (“Campaign 6”) had not closed any leads in the past 12 months.
There are so many online places to display your PPC ads, which certainly complicates matters. To maximize budget and conversion, marketers must carefully select venues on the basis of factors like traffic volume, average conversion rates, and cost per click. Give your geotargeting the best chance of success by using a platform that allows you to maximize your online visibility without blowing your budget.
The central idea behind geotargeting is that understanding a consumers real-time — or past —location helps marketers achieve the holy grail of delivering the “right message at the right time.” In a simple example, an adult customer visiting car dealerships is likely interested in buying a car, and serving a local Honda ad to this customer more likely to be successful.
Viele Existenzgründer beenden ihre Wettbewerbsanalyse nach Schritt 3 und vergessen die wichtigste Aufgabe: die Auswertung der Daten. Bringen Sie die gesammelten Informationen dazu zunächst in eine Form, in der Sie sie vergleichen können (beispielsweise in eine Vergleichstabelle). Analysieren Sie Ihre Mitbewerber, erkennen Sie Einflussfaktoren auf Ihr Geschäft und ziehen Sie die notwendigen Schlussfolgerungen. Im Ergebnis sollte sich die Wettbewerbsanalyse in Ihrer Unternehmensstrategie niederschlagen und Ihnen helfen, das Marktpotenzial so gut wie möglich auszuschöpfen.
I have often gone on the record with my skepticism toward paid search campaign management software, and I have several reasons for being skeptical. My main concern has been that these tools over promise on features and under deliver on performance. They claim to replace the analyst by using algorithms to optimize campaigns, but in reality they replace the fun piece of the analysts job (improving results) and replace it with the tedious task of managing to get their campaigns to work properly in the software. I have been burned by this sales pitch twice and have written about this in a previous post called “Paid Search Bid Management Tools: Great Investment or Save Your Money?” – so feel free to read that post for more details.
Keywordstrategien: Der Fokus in der SEO geht auf bestimmte relevante Suchbegriffe oder Suchbegriffscluster. Bei der bezahlten Suche ist es genauso möglich auf angrenzende Suchbegriffe zu bieten, auch wenn diese ggf. einen schlechten AdWords Qualitätsfaktor haben. Am Ende zählt dann hier die Konversion. Ein Beispiel für erweiterte Keywordstrategien, wären hier für uns Begriffe, wie SEO Seminar oder SEO Schulung, auf die wir selber optimieren (SEO). Trotzdem erweitern wir die Bewerbung (Google AdWords) unsere eigenen Seminare auf Begriffe, wie SEO Fortbildung, Weiterbildung etc über Google AdWords.
The same goes for PPC advertising. Potential customers who are targeted with your PPC ads don’t care about your need to fill your pipeline or your salespeople’s need to meet their quota—the truth is they only care about what’s in it for themselves. Cater to this by crafting your ad copy in the second person, keeping the importance on the consumer and not on your company.
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.
