Vielleicht fragt ihr euch, warum Unternehmen andere Firmen auf dem Markt analysieren sollten, auch wenn sie eigentlich nichts mit ihnen direkt zu tun haben. Gemäß der Weisheit “Alles Fließt“ (lat. Panta Rhei) oder “Die einzige Konstante ist die Veränderung“ sollten sie stets nicht nur die Veränderungen im Markt, sondern auch die Konkurrenten im Auge behalten. Mithilfe von Wettbewerbsanalysen überprüfen Unternehmen alle wichtigen Faktoren, die auf den Zielmarkt Einfluss haben. So können Führungskräfte die Strategien der Konkurrenten besser verstehen und im günstigsten Fall sogar vorhersehen– wenn beispielsweise Veränderungen am Markt auftreten. Dann können Unternehmen schlussendlich folgern, was sie selbst besser machen oder verändern sollten.
1,000+ keywords: if it’s just you or 2 of you, this is probably more than you can chew off. It’s not hard to gather 1,000 keywords though, so if you’ve got the time, the people and the inspiration, it usually does pay off to write a lot of meaningful content. Do make sure that all those keywords relate to your products or services as otherwise it’s nonsense and make sure that you’re structuring your site well around it.
The risk to this approach is that it isn’t always terribly accurate beyond the city to zip code level. If, for example, you were to use MaxMind’s demo service to locate your own IP, it will likely show you perhaps a mile away from your actual address, likely at the nearest network node, the point at which your computer connects to your ISP’s network infrastructure.
Even more specifically, I’m talking about Google AdWords—the major player in this space—and Bing Ads, the next largest network of its type, which also handles PPC ads on Yahoo. AdWords and Bing Ads operate so similarly that the differences between them won’t affect the advice in this post. For practical purposes, when you’re just starting out, you can think of Bing Ads as a mini AdWords: smaller in terms of traffic but also in terms of cost, which can be appealing.
The easiest way to target a particular geographic area is simply to set up a Facebook ad as usual. When you’re setting up the audience and you get to the map, hit “Drop Pin” and place the indicator in the middle of your intended target area. Then, use the radius slider to modify the full range of land that your targeting will cover. You can adjust this from 1 mile to up to 50 miles.
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.
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.

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.
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.
People are no longer shocked to find elements of personalization embedded into various aspects of advertising, and in fact, have even come to expect it. Think about it this way: When it comes to marketing emails, which are you more likely to open and read—the one addressed to “Dear Customer” featuring generic copy on topics that aren’t relevant to you? Or are you more likely to engage with the email addressed to your name that includes links to blog posts relevant to the industry you work in, as well as items you might like based on your previous purchases? That’s right—you’re going to open and read the email that’s tailored to you.
Wichtige Konkurrenten zu identifizieren, ihre Strategie zu durchschauen und das gesammelte Wissen zu nutzen, um sie letztendlich zu überholen - die Grundlage für ein solches Vorhaben ist eine Wettbewerbsanalyse. Wer eigene Schwächen im Vergleich zur Konkurrenz kennt, weiß, woran gearbeitet werden muss. Wer die eigenen Stärken kennt, der kann sie ausbauen, stärker betonen und sich damit einzigartig machen. Eine Wettbewerbsanalyse ist die Grundlage für die strategische Positionierung eines Unternehmens im Markt.
If I have quite a lot solid keywords which convert well in my manual campaign, may I set auto campaign and put all of these keywords from manual campaign as negative? The purpose of this action is to avoid pay for them twice (on auto and manual campaign) and just use auto campaign for search maybe some new cheap keywords which also can convert quite good…
I don’t quite understand the use of negative keywords with manual campaigns as you stated, however, I read another article of yours and it stated to do both Manual and Auto campaigns for the same product, tale keywords from the manual campaign and input them as “negative keywords” in the auto campaigns as a strategy to not compete against your own keywords….is this still accurate? I look forward to these posts to build up my knowledge and best practices for PPC on Amazon. Thanks so much
But consider this: only a lead who is in the early stages of researching a product or solution (aka not ready to convert) uses such general keywords in their search engine research, simply because they aren’t yet educated enough about what they’re looking for. Similar to a negative keyword strategy, bottom-of-the-funnel (BOFU) keywords can help you reach avoid the wrong leads. These keywords are ones that are more pricing and service-oriented, which will bring in consumers who have a higher potential of converting as a result of your PPC ads.
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.
Probieren Sie allgemein gehaltene Keywords aus, um herauszufinden, womit Sie die besten Ergebnisse erzielen. Auch allgemeine Keywords sollten immer möglichst relevant für Ihre Anzeigen und Ihre Website sein. Vermeiden Sie jedoch identische Keywords in Ihrem Konto, da von Google immer nur eine Anzeige pro Werbetreibendem und Keyword ausgeliefert wird.
Use these consumer characteristics to time and target your marketing. For example, airports on weekdays are a great source of business travelers looking for high-end restaurants, while weekends and Spring Break bring more leisure visitors and families looking for more casual dining options. Likewise, dance clubs and bars can benefit by promoting 18 and over events targeted at universities whose student bodies are largely between the ages of 18-21. These are just a few examples of how venues define audiences that can be effectively targeted.
Reason: If visitors find your website with a certain keyword but you have a high bounce rate, that’s enough to know that something is not going as it should. Ask yourself and test if it is a problem with content quality, appearance, etc. There is often more than one explanation for a high bounce rate, and there could be more than one solution. If you are totally lost at this point, a feedback session with five potential users might provide some insightful ideas.
Once your ad is displayed, it’s likely to be clicked by only a tiny percentage of people who search for such a broad term, making it less likely to be displayed in the future. And even if you create an ad that’s broad enough for those searchers to reliably click, they’re unlikely to find exactly what they’re looking for on your landing page. You’re paying a lot for poor-quality traffic.
Attributed Sales – The total product sales generated within one week of clicks on your ads. Your sales data can take up to 48 hours to populate. As a result, sales data is not available in the “Today” date range and may be delayed in the “Yesterday” date range. You can view the individual sales totals for advertised products and other products in the Campaign Performance report
This is a particularly useful strategy for local businesses (or any business that takes calls, really) to target people who are likely to call them directly from a search query. With Call Extensions you can easily add a click-to-call button to your mobile ads and phone numbers to your desktop ads. Additionally, you can track customers who make calls from your website using Website Call Conversions.
Another method is to track your competitors’ links. Content marketing is often done in unison with link building. Your competitors most likely create content on blogging sites. Within the articles they submit, there are external backlinks that point back to their own websites. Those links can be followed like a trail of breadcrumbs to track what they’ve been up to. Moz and Majestic are tools that are great for doing this. Here’s a look at what Moz found when I looked up Easel.ly, an infographics company.
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.
Beschränke dich auf fünf bis acht deiner engsten Konkurrenten und auf ebenso viele Merkmale. Wenn du Branchen- oder Marktberichte liest, dann wähle dir die zwei aus, die dir besonders interessant erscheinen, und ignoriere den Rest. Dein Ziel ist es nicht, alles über deinen Zielmarkt zu erfahren, sondern zu erkennen, wie die Wettbewerbssituation beschaffen ist, welche Chancen und Risiken sich für dich ergeben und mit welcher Vorgehensweise du dich am besten behaupten kannst.
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.
Eines der bekanntesten Beispiele für langjährige Rivalität ist die zwischen Coca-Cola und Pepsi. Der Wettbewerb zwischen den beiden Marken existiert schon seit dem späten 20. Jahrhundert und ist seit jeher in den Medien und sozialen Netzwerken präsent. Einerseits sind die Einnahmen von Coca-Cola zwar höher, andererseits erzielt Pepsi aufgrund seiner größeren Auswahl an Produkten und Dienstleistungen höhere Umsätze.
Wirkung: Google AdWords ist sehr performanceorientiert und hat klare Kennzahlen (Impressionen, CTR, CPC, RPC), bei nachvollziehbaren Kosten. Suchmaschinenoptimierung ist hier eher wie Pressearbeit zu verstehen. Durch die Bündelung vieler sinnvoller Maßnahmen erhöhen Sie die Wahrscheinlichkeit auf gute Positionen, nur eine Garantie für Top-Positionen kann Euch niemand machen.
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 results that we’ve seen among early adopters of geo-targeted campaigns are encouraging, and as more people join the smartphone society, opportunities will increase for brands and retailers to target mobile-savvy consumers on the move with real-time, contextually relevant offers and promotions that can be instantly redeemed close by. We can only see the trend heading one way.
En indholdsanalyse er en komplet analyse af dit indhold. En indholdsanalyse har til formål at analysere og identificere svagheder og muligheder i det indhold, dit website er baseret på, ofte med udgangspunkt i en allerede udarbejdet søgeordsanalyse. Det er ikke kun websitets brødtekst, der bliver analyseret, men alle dele af dets indhold, først og fremmest sidetitler, Alt-tags, titler, URL-adresser, overskrifter, brugen af fed og kursiv, målretning af indholdet og redundant indhold.
