Before we jump into optimizing days and time for Google Ads, let’s have a look at the types of bid adjustments –

Adjust your bids based on the location of particular countries, cities and specific areas. 

Ad scheduling – 

Adjust your bids based on the days and timings of ads being displayed. 

Remarketing lists for search Ads –

Demographics –

As we now know the types of bid adjustment for Google Ads, let’s have a granular look at ad scheduling bids and how to optimize them. 

What is Ad scheduling or dayparting in Google Ads? 

If you have been running Google Ads, you would be having enough data to analyse the best performing days and times. 

To get the valuable information of your Google AdSense, go to the Dimensions tab and see what time and days are working the best for your ads. This is known as dayparting and ad scheduling in technical terms. 

Here are 5 steps to Setting Up Google Ads Scheduling – 

Step 1 – 

Jump to the Dimension tab of a particular campaign you want to focus on before creating an ad schedule or excluding days of the week. You can also look across the entire account if you have one or two campaigns having a similar focus.  

(Dimension Tab SS here) 

Step – 2 

After opening the Dimensions tab, navigate to the “View” drop-down button and scroll down to the “Time” option. There you will see an option to select “Day of the week” and “Hour of the day.”

Step 3

Analysing the days and times that are the most profitable and performing the best with regards to your PPC goals. Plus, ensure that the data you are analysing is significant enough to create an ad schedule based on that. Examining and considering the previous record is the best way to plan your future ad campaigns.  

Step 4

As you have analysed the previous data, it is now time to create a unique ad schedule for the maximum results possible. Go to the “Settings” tab within the campaign that you want to adjust and then select “Ad Schedule.”

Step – 5 

Once you decide the days and time you want to schedule your ads, scroll down and select the red “+ AD SCHEDULE” button to select the days and hours of the week. Moreover, don’t forget to adjust bids according to the data you have. Use “Set bid adjustments” to bid higher or lower on certain days according to the results it provides.

Additional Tips – 

Google Ads is a perfect combination of an easy and complicated process. Though you may have analysed all the data and set the ad campaigns accordingly, don’t forget to keep monitoring your account and try new things on a trial basis first to conclude your experiment outcomes. Also, look for the patterns in the new ad schedule and make future adjustments accordingly. 

The best days and times for you totally depend on your business type. For example, if you have a hotel resort – the best days would be Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. If you have a B2B model, Monday to Friday during working hours would be the best performing measures for you. 

Nonetheless, there would be some industries that won’t find a particular dayparting value. For example, B2C businesses don’t have particular peak hours as they have a consistent flow of foot traffic. 

Identify the types of responses you are getting from your ad campaigns. For example, whether you are getting more form fill-ups or more calls for queries. This will help you in creating more successful campaigns in future. For example, if your campaign is getting the highest number of responses on Monday from 10 AM to 3 PM then set higher bids for that particular time. 

Other than timings and days of the week, keep in mind other important factors along the way. Sometimes two queries look identical yet one converts and another doesn’t. In such cases, figure out other factors like location, keywords being targeted, demographics and devices they are using. All of these play a major influence on the conversion rate.

Multipliers can be set from -100% to +900% for various dimensions in AdWords. Some of it can be set only on the campaign level while others can be set at the ad group level. One thing to remember here is that, when you have multipliers set at both campaign and ad group level, granular ad group level multipliers would always take precedence. 

Conclusion – 

Google AdSense is one of the most amazing tools out there and bids adjustment based on various factors is the diamond of the king’s crown. The steps and additional tips are discussed in the blog above! Following all the steps and tips will definitely give you guaranteed results.

Businesses can explore the world of opportunities with Social Media Advertising like Facebook Ads, Instagram Ads, LinkedIn Ads, and YouTube Ads. 

Advertising on multiple platforms allows businesses to improve their brand awareness while generating sales from various platforms. 

     2) Remarketing 

Remarketing is the best way to improve the conversion rate. 

In simple words, remarketing is an advertising strategy where a business remarkets its products or services to those who have visited the business’s  website before. 

With the assistance of Google Analytics, businesses can filter audiences for remarketing campaigns based on the pages a user has visited, time spent on it, device, and many more other factors. 

Making remarketing an integral part of your PPC strategy is super important. 

Once a business has access to its target audience, it can run a remarkable campaign with Google Ads. 

After linking Google Ads and Google Analytics accounts, businesses can import and access the audience easily. 

As soon as a business gains a specific number of users as an audience, it can launch a remarkable campaign. 

There are multiple options available to launch your remarketing campaigns like Google Ads and Bing Ads – businesses usually prefer Google Ads as it provides massive reach compared to other options available. 

     3) Implementing Ad Extensions 

Adding extensions to your Google Ads improves the effectiveness of a PPC campaign. 

When a business launches an Ad with an extension, users can take appropriate and valuable action quickly. 

For example, having a call extension allows customers to contact the business immediately, or providing your business address makes it easier for customers to reach your business without any inconvenience. 

Google Ads are continuously expanding the list of ad extensions so that businesses can upgrade their ads for the best optimization.  

Using PPC extensions for PPC Ads improves the value of the ad regardless of the industry of  business operations.

    4) Mobile-Friendly Landing Pages – 

Today more than 78% of internet traffic comes from mobile devices, and it is increasing day by day; and with this, it is totally understandable why businesses are targeting mobile-devices as a medium of advertising. 

Not only internet traffic, but more than 48% of online transactions occur on mobile devices, and third fourth of the ad clicks happens on mobile devices. 

Despite all of these fantastic data, some businesses overlook the importance of the mobile-friendliness of PPC ads. 

So not only the ads but the landing pages should also be mobile-friendly. 

Here are some of the qualities that make a landing page top-notch – 

Speed 

Functionality

Relevance 

User-friendly  

Intuitiveness 

Designing mobile-friendly PPC ads support maximizing the ROI from PPC while providing the best user experience possible. 

   5) Target Similar Audience – 

Targeting similar audiences on various social media platforms and Google Ads makes the PPC strategies an innovative one. 

While targeting the same audience on various platforms expose a business to a huge number of potential customers while improving the brand awareness to the next level. 

Additionally, it allows a business to target an audience with unmatched depth and accuracy. Going further, Facebook and Google Ads automates most of the audience creation process once the team has provided basic and initial data. 

One amazing feature of Google Ads is that it creates a remarketing audience to build a similar audience; the best part is that including a similar audience with a display remarketing campaign increases conversion rates by 45%. 

For example, on Facebook, one can upload a customer file, refer to site traffic, app activity, and other valuable information to build a lookalike audience. 

Businesses that leverage the feature of lookalike audiences experience massive success with four times higher PPC ROI. 

   6) Plan a realistic Advertising Budget 

Undoubtedly, PPC is one of the most cost-effective ways of online advertising, and all the platforms allow businesses to set the budget as per their preferences; however it doesn’t mean that a business will get great results by spending almost nothing. 

Researching about the current PPC bid rates that other businesses are paying in your industry supports you in planning a PPC budget. 

By analyzing the average cost-per-click rate of the industry, a business can outline its budget accordingly.  

Additionally, performing an industry analysis provides a business with the current trends; though a business doesn’t necessarily have to spend as much time as the highest paying bid but it will give an idea for strategizing a PPC budget. 

Having measurable data and statistics allows budget planners to support and justify the budget while presenting it to the major authorities of a business.  

Referencing the average for small-to-midsize businesses(SMBs) will give a business an idea about how much they should be spending to optimize the best results possible.  

Moreover, evaluating the PPC Budget against its competitors and average industry budget helps in getting its worth. 

    7) Craft a copy that compels – 

If the ad copy is not attractive, engaging, and relevant enough, users are not going to click on the ad – as simple as that. 

Regardless of the industry of a business operation, a compelling, engaging and relatable ad copy is essential for the success of a PPC campaign. 

Here are some tips that support in writing engaging and compelling ad copy – 

Highlight the Unique Selling Proposition (USP) of business’s products or services. 

Display the relevant prices, offers, and discounts to increase conversions.  

Make sure that the landing page matches what the copy communicates. 

Let customers know what they will experience or benefit from rather than showcasing the feature of a product or service. 

Include powerful call-to-action (CAT) presenting actions that a business wants customers to take. 

As useless or not-so-important, a business may think about the role of a copy in a PPC ad, but it plays a great role in hooking customers to the ad while asking them to purchase in a pleasant manner. 

    8) Use Responsive Search And Display Ads 

Responsive Search Ads – be it on Display or Search Network supports business in automating the parts of the PPC strategy. 

Google Ads allows businesses to leverage responsive display ads as well as responsive search ads. Moreover, a business can also leverage the machine learning capabilities of Google Ads.

Google Ads will examine thousands of ad combinations and generate valuable insights with regards to its performance. 

Analyzing the data will support Google Ads in discovering which ad combinations perform the best.  

Leveraging Google ads is like having the support of smarter, stronger, and more effective tools for the online advertising and marketing of a business. 

Additionally, a business also has the luxury to experiment with images and ad copies while submitting multiple headlines and descriptions for Google to test. 

So including a responsive ad in the PPC strategy improves the results of PPC campaigns. 

     9) Experiment with A/B testing – 

Executing and experimenting with various versions of PPC ads provides valuable insights into the performance of each type of Ad, which further supports businesses in planning future PPC campaigns. 

A PPC campaign A/B Testing supports experimenting with multiple factors like – 

➢  Bids

There is lots of buzz going around the PPC, and it has become the new way of advertising your products and services in a cost-effective manner. If we compare online advertising and marketing, it is much more efficient and effective while not putting big holes in our pockets. 

It is a common thing for all of us to see relevant ads on various platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn once we have searched something on Google. 

Not only on social media platforms, but we even see ads on the top and bottom of Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs). Such ads are called online paid marketing. 

In this article, we have looked at the various aspects concerning PPC, starting from the simple and basic definition of PPC to how PPC works,  the use of keywords, budget and bidding, factors that affect ad ranking, targeting and conversion. 

We have done enough research and ran a number of PPC campaigns before, so we know the techniques and tricks that really work and make your PPC successful. 

So, let’s jump over to the point without wasting any more time. 

What is PPC? 

 

PPC is an abbreviation for pay-per-click. As the name implies, it is an advertising model that allows advertisers to release their ads on an ad platform and pay the host of that platform only when someone clicks their ad. 

The purpose of PPC is to generate leads for a business by landing an ad viewer on a website or an app followed by a valuable action. The simplest and the most common action an advertiser wants a viewer to take is purchasing the product or service they are offering. 

As discussed above, you see ads based on your recent searches on Google or based on your activities, interest and engagement patterns on social media platforms. 

What does a PPC ad include? 

A PPC ad includes 

→ Headline 

→ URL and 

→ Description 

The headline is what users will see on the top of your ad. It plays an important role in catching the attention of your targeted audience and appealing to them for reading further. 

URL is the link of your landing page or app, where you want your targeted audience to take further action. 

And description includes all the information that your user wants to know about the product or service you offer. 

Using A/B testing for your PPC campaign is the best way to figure out which type of Ad content works best for you. 

How PPC works in real-time? 

When someone puts a query on a search engine, a quick auction takes place with the relevant keywords. 

To decide which ad will be shown depends on multiple factors like bid amount, quality of the ad, and the quality of the landing page. The ad that wins the auction gets a place on top or bottom of the SERPs depending on the budget and bid amount an advertiser is willing to pay. 

The most popular platforms to optimize your PPC campaigns are Google, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Quora. In addition to that, Google Ads is mostly used to manage PPC campaigns.

To participate in these auctions, advertisers use platforms like Google Ads to set up their ads and determine where and when they would like those ads to appear. Moreover, these ads are further categorized according to locations, product types, and the niche they belong to. 

The time and rankings of your ads depend on the real-time bidding (RTB), where advertising inventory is sold in a private automated auction using real-time data.

What are budgets and bids in PPC? 

To participate in the auction process, advertisers need to confirm how much they are willing to spend as their total campaign budget and how much on individual clicks and how much each day. Plus, advertisers can also decide the budget for each ad group and keyword level. 

Your total daily budget may exceed, but your monthly budget will never be overspent. Bids are a way to precise your daily spending. Generally, advertisers spend budget based on keyword-level bid as ad groups budget may affect the keyword relevance of the ad being displayed. 

Moreover, the actual amount paid by advertisers depends on the competitor’s activity and ad rank, not just the maximum bid – all thanks to the RTB system. 

Keywords 

Keywords hold the significance of the whole PPC campaign. 

In simple terms, keywords are those words that users use as their queries. So if someone Google “best digital agency near me,” it will become a keyword for search engines. 

Search engines collect a wide range of similar queries and then filter out some generalized keywords out of the thousands of queries by users. 

Based on the type of advertisement and niche it belongs to, advertisers can select keywords that suit their intentions the most. 

To be more clear, an advertiser can choose to show the ad for the exact keywords that have been selected or can opt for minor changes like synonyms of those words, the inclusion of other words, or minor spelling mistakes.  

Negative keywords help in preventing ads from being triggered by search queries containing that particular set of words, resulting in less irrelevant traffic. 

Factors that decide the ad rank – 

Winning a bid is just the first step. Your game doesn’t stop there. 

There are many other factors that decide the ranking of your ad. 

These factors are – 

→ Bid amount 

→ Ad relevance and quality

→ Context of the user (Such as location and time zone)

→ Ad format like numbers of extension 

Plus, ad relevance depends on the quality metric score. 

The quality metric score is determined by – 

→ History of click-through rate 

→ The relevance of keywords with the ad being displayed 

→ The relevance of search query and keywords with the ad 

→ Quality of landing page 

The quality score of your ad matters the most; the higher the quality score, the lesser the cost-per-click (CPC) will be. 

So, you should not compromise the quality of your ad, be it keywords, ad copy, or landing page – assess all of them twice before you publish your ad. 

If you don’t have relevant keywords included in your ad copy or campaign, even your highest bid amount won’t work. 

Additionally, make sure that your ad copy is interesting and engaging enough to grab and hold the attention of your targeted audience. 

Overall smooth user experience is what that matters when it comes to quality score. 

Targeting with the right techniques 

Once you are ready with your ad copy and keywords, your next step is to target your audience. 

Choosing the right keywords is one of the techniques, along with many others. 

These other techniques of targeting your audience are inclusive of – 

→ Device

→ Location

→ Timezone 

→ Device 

→ Age group 

→ Gender and

→ General interests 

Considering all of these factors and filtering the audience based on these factors will help you in optimizing your campaign’s performance and efficiency. 

What’s more? By targeting the right kind of audience, you make sure that your copy matches the interest with the taste of your targeted audience. There are lots of benefits of PPC advertising. 

Conversion – 

What’s next after making so much effort in writing an ad copy, using the right keywords, and filtering out people based on various factors? 

The whole process is meant for converting potential buyers into sales. All that a business wants is real conversion. 

A conversion can mean – 

→ Buying a product 

→ Opting for a service 

→ Or just simply a call on the given number to get more information from your side 

But the trickiest part here is that we can’t measure the exact response of the PPC, as the viewers might directly walk into the store when you have given an option of call or something else. 

However, you can track the conversion rate using a snippet of the code placed to the source code of the conversion page.

So, let’s understand the concept of Google Ad Extensions. 

What are exactly Google Ad Extensions?  

Google Ad Extensions is additional information attached to the ad that facilitates users by providing them with what they are looking for. 

It could be anything starting from a phone number, locations or business hours. 

An ad without extension will look something like this – simple, having just a headline, a URL, and a copy for the context for the ad. 

While an ad with extension will have more accurate and relevant information that the consumer is looking for. 

For example, something like this – 

If you look at the image above, you see that there is a site link, an address for quicker navigation and business timings. They all are extensions. 

There are many such ad extensions available that you can utilize to improve the quality of your ad. 

The most important thing here is that all of these Google Ad extensions are free and don’t cost you even a single penny; so you have no reason not to use them. 

Why Google Ad Extensions? 

There are two main reasons for leveraging Google Ad Extensions; first, it holds the most space for your ad – giving you more attention and visibility and second a seller or service provider might have some valuable information that facilitates the customer in their findings.  

Additionally, Google Ad Extension improves the click-through-rate (CTR) followed by increased conversion rate for the ad campaigns. 

A business can experience a 10 to 15% hike in CTR if they have added an extension or more than one extension in their PPC campaign. 

Going further, extensions also support the quality score of your ad and thus helps in ranking higher.  

How to create a Google Ad extension? 

To create a Google Ad extension, go to the ad dashboard, and on the left-hand side of the dashboard, you will find a label “Ads & Extension.” 

After clicking on the label, you will see many types of Ad extensions. 

You can add as many extensions as you want in a single campaign based on your requirements and preferences. Or you can use the same set of extensions to multiple campaigns if you want. 

Creating an extension is extremely easy, and it takes only a few minutes to set. You just need to enter a few details, and you are done. 

As soon as you are ready with the extension, you can add them to any campaign at any time and point. 

Types of Google Ad Extensions – 

There are numbers of Ad extensions that you can choose for your ad. Each of the extensions has a particular advantage and supports the specific action from users. 

Here is the list of various extensions that will support your Ad for better. 

1)  Sitelink Extensions

Sitelink extensions are one of the most popular extensions. Site Extensions are a great way to quickly land your customer on the page that they are looking for. 

Sitelink extensions are clickable text with highlights that redirects the user to the intended page.

2)  Callout Extension

Call extensions are a great way to generate leads for businesses that provide services on an immediate basis- for example, a garage or hospital.

7)  App Extension

Having an app for your business and customers improves the performance of the sales ratio. 

Regular customers prefer to shop with an app rather than the website.

Here is an example of an app extension –

12)  Image Extensions

If you are in the business of painting or visual arts, having image extensions are a great way to make your ad even more appealing. 

Not just paintings, but adding an image extension for your products is a great way of improving the quality of your ad. 

You can add up to six images to each campaign or ad group while adding a unique URL to each image. 

Here is the example of image extension – 

How to choose an ad extension for your campaign? 

Though there are numbers of ad extensions available, you don’t have to use all of them. You just need to use a few of them to optimize your ad campaign. 

To understand and know the best ad extension for your business, you first need to be clear on the intent of your ad. Choose the one that best fits your targeted audience. Know the taste and behavior pattern of your targeted audience and go ahead accordingly.  

Running A/B testing for ad extensions will provide you with more insights about your audience and their behavior pattern and thus helping you in strategizing your next ad campaign for even better results.

Writing an ad copy is the trickiest part, especially when you are spending thousands of dollars on your online advertising campaign like PPC. 

Though it takes only a line or two to convert your potential customers into a successful sale, it needs lots of research and analytical skills to write that one or two lines; after all, you are spending a lot of money for that ad!! 

In this blog, we have discussed the top 10 techniques that will help you in converting your ad into the secret to success. 

So, let’s hop on to the topic without wasting much of your time. 

1) Make customers hero

Whether you are a product-based company or a service-based, your customers are what keeps your business going. Show the same to your customers while writing an ad copy for them. 

Instead of focusing on your business or your services, focus on the benefits of it.  

“Customer’s interest” should be the center of your ad copy. 

For example, if you are a software company, the ideal copy of your ad would be

“A software that makes your life easier.” 

You can see that the interest of customers is the priority here, instead of the software. 

2) Evoke the emotions 

Another very important thing that you must remember is to touch the emotional side of your customers. 

Don’t treat them just as the sales objectives; look at them with human eyes and understand the logic behind their association with your products or services. 

Encourage their motivation to buy your product.

For example, if you are selling a beauty product, your copy would seem something like 

“Be the Queen of the universe with XYZ product.”

This is the simplest and effective way to communicate your message while appealing to them on an emotional level. 

3) Include numbers 

Including numbers, facts, and statistics in your copy is another way to boost-up the response level to your ad. 

The simplest way to use numbers in your ad copy is to show the price tag of your products or services you are offering. Emphasis on the numbers. 

Additionally, you can also show the figure of satisfied customers you have or the number of sales you have made over a period of time. 

Or, if you are targeting a B2B audience, you can simply show some industrial numeric information and ask them to take further actions. 

4) Be in the shoes of your targeted audience

To write an effective copy, you need to have the ability to put yourself in the shoes of customers and look at the problems of their lives and how your products or services can help them in overcoming that. 

Always, always emphasize the benefits of your products and not features. Customers are more interested in knowing the benefits than technicality.

It takes lots of research to understand your targeted audience and know their lifestyle and interests, but all of that is worth it for writing an ad copy that converts. 

5) Leverage FOMO 

As per human psychology, people fear missing out on things. FOMO abbreviation stands for  “Fear Of Missing Out.” 

Leveraging FOMO is the best way to urge your audience to take action. 

To create urgency, you can use words like only “1 day left”, or “limited period offer”, or “a few spots left”. 

6) Show the “Exclusive” side of your product – 

If you have launched a product in the market that is new or makes you stand out from your competitors, be loud about it!! 

Let’s say, for example, if you are an academic institute and have recently uploaded a video or a course that will help your students to a great extent, then FOCUS on that!! Make it the hero of your copy and let people know about it. 

7) Make various copies of your ad 

When you write more than one copy of your product, you can choose the best among them. 

Writing a copy with multiple perspectives and applying various techniques for your ad copy will give you an option and freedom to pick the most suitable and appealing copy to present to your potential customers.

8) Address the goal of your audience 

Customers tend to buy those products, which accomplish them in reaching their goals. 

So, let’s say if you are a shoe brand and you support your customers by providing them the best running shoes – Your ideal copy looks like “ Want the best running shoes for your health goals?” – as simple as that. 

You don’t have to write long and complex paragraphs to convey your message; make it as simple as possible. Short and simple and yet powerful sentences work magic. 

9) Use powerful words 

Even though you are making your copy short and direct, don’t forget to include powerful words like “now” “you” “avail” or any other strong and appealing words related to your industry. 

10) CTA 

Call-to-action indicates to your customers the next steps that they need to take. So imagine, you have told them all the benefits of your product and how their problems will be solved by availing your services, but you don’t include CTA in your ad copy; it will be all worthless. 

Just letting them know all the benefits and explaining without asking to take any valuable action is totally pointless. 

CTA can be as simple as “Buy Now”, “Follow the page”, “Subscribe Now” or any other action you want them to take. 

The bottom line – 

Your ad copy plays a significant role in your ROI and sales rate, so never overlook it. Invest a good amount of time and research the market before writing an ad copy. Implement all of the above tips to make your ad copy as a sales converter and boost-up your business to the next level.
