To get your ads to show, you need to ‘bid’ on each keyword in your account.

Bid too little, Google won’t show your ads. Bid too much, you’ll melt a credit card & soon throw in the towel. Finding just the right amount - for each keyword - is the key to long-term success with Google Ads.

In this episode we’ll decode the jargon, figure out what the right amount is for you & start to explore what “The Machine” is capable of.

Google Ads is NOT a ‘set and forget’ medium. 

The very thing that makes it such a wonderful tool for business, is also what makes it a never-ending game! The world of business & marketing is dynamic.

Your prospects & future customers have ever-changing needs. Your competitors will try new things, new offers, new services, new products.

Google will give you the data - you have to use it.

In this episode I’ll give you a simple 3-part framework you can use to start your optimisation (there’s a more robust version available in AgencySavvy if you’re keen).
