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.
Successful online advertising requires ongoing work and optimisation to improve performance and results. Maximising output and reducing input is critical. You must clearly outline the business objectives, goals, and audiences for each campaign. This chapter outlines our PPC model which considers objectives, goals, audience, and targeting to ensure your PPC is based on a solid strategy with clear measures in place to analyse and improve as you go.
Estimated Costs: Creating content to adequately target specific keywords will require varying amounts of time, money, and effort. In some situations, you might find that targeting a certain keyword also allows you to SEO your landing page at the same time. So be on the lookout for shortcuts that might make ranking for a keyword more cost-efficient than it would otherwise be. That’s how you can find real money-makers!
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.

Der Kundenservice eines Unternehmens ist oftmals neben Faktoren wie Lieferschnelligkeit, Usability der Webseite, etc. ein Aushängeschild des Unternehmens. Eine Wettbewerbsanalyse der Servicestrategie Ihrer Konkurrenz dient dazu, die eigene Positionierung in diesem Segment zu verstehen und ggf. neu auszurichten. Interessante Fakten sind unter anderem:
Ein großer Vorteil der digitalen Marktforschung sind die großen Mengen an Daten, die auf einmal gesammelt werden können. Zu Beginn einer Befragung werden demographische Informationen wie Alter, Geschlecht, Wohnort oder Bildungsstand der Umfrageteilnehmer erhoben und gemeinsam mit den Ergebnissen abgespeichert.  Auf diesem Wege können nach der Befragung interessante Insights gewonnen werden, die man vorher vielleicht nicht unbedingt erwartet hätte.
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.
Eine Wettbewerbsanalyse kann auch zum Ziel haben, Marketing und Vertriebsstrategien zu erarbeiten. Informationen zu der strategischen Ausrichtung und der Vertriebs- und Marketingstrategie der eigenen Konkurrenten können verwendet werden um eigene Strategien zu entwickeln, zu optimieren oder gegebenenfalls funktionierende Systeme zu übernehmen und anzupassen.
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.
If you have and use a smartphone, it’s possible for you to set location-based reminders for yourself, right now. You can, for example, tell your phone to alert you when you’re within range of the frame shop, so that new piece of art doesn’t become a six-month fixture in your trunk. Or, if you’ve attended a concert lately, and the band sends you a push notification to buy some gear while you’re in the venue, they’ve likely used geofencing.
Either way, for the third time, thank you, Chandan. I tend to start my analysis (my own website or that of competition) using something simpler (like or the tool I mentioned before that was flagged for some reason). It gives a lot of technical data quickly, so long as you can decipher it and draw some conclusions. And, naturally, take some of it with a grain of salt. But once that is done, your list is the obvious next step into in-depth analysis.
