More Relevant Ad Groups = MORE SUCCESS!
Create Your Ad
When creating your Ad, keep in mind that it has to be RELEVANT to your keyword in order to have clicked and got the highest rate! Relevant is the magic word in the PPC world!
The same goes for every ad you create. You want your ad to be relevant to your keywords within your ad group, but you also want it to be interesting to the potential visitor.
Here is a screenshot of a Bing Ad PPC Campaign
Here are some things that you should focus on within your ads:
- Include the keywords within it
- Be captivating
- Be different from the other ads under the same keyword
- Offer a call to action (click here, go here, get started today, join now, etc)
Setting Your Initial Bids
I recommend that you keep your initial bids between $0.20-$0.30, that is a good range to start out with. There will be some keywords that you will be able to get traffic from for $0.05, and some that will cost much more. This will be determined relatively quickly as you start getting some traffic.
Relevance = Success
The beauty of the PPC world is that you have the ability to target “EXACT” keywords. In fact, you can be extraordinarily precise with your campaigns…this is something that will work for you if you understand the idea of RELEVANCE.
