If you have something to sell Google Adwords can be a very effective way of finding customers interested in your product, If you do it correctly. In this blog post i will share a few tips and hints that will help you write effective google adwords ads.
Target your CustomersYou need to make sure you target the correct audience with your adwords ads. If your product is only available in England then it's no good displaying the adverts to people in China. If your site is in English then it's no good displaying the advert to non-English speaking people. By thinking about who would want the product you can keep your costs down and conversions high simply by only showing the advert to the people most interested in it.
Not FREEIn your adwords ad you should include a price. This way people know that they aren't going to be getting anything for free. This means the only people who click the advert are people who know you want paying and are willing to pay. Remember, You don't want visitors, You want sales. Unless you are giving away something for free, In which case "FREE" is the most important word you could use.
Don't include common wordsBy not including common words (such as the, a, it) you can maximize the keywords in your advert. Get as much information in your adwords ad as possible. Ultimately you want the people viewing your advert to know exactly what they will see when they reach your product page.
Provoke EnthusiasmUse phrases like "limited time offer" or "free shipping" to create a sense of urgency in the person viewing it. If they think they can only get your "special deal" if they act now, They will be more likely to act now rather than wait and risk losing out.
The Magic Of Square BracketsBy using square brackers around your [keywords] you can make sure your advert is shown only when that exact phrase is found. If you only have black ipods to sell you don't want people clicking your advert if they have searched for white ipods.
So by using [black ipods] your advert will only appear to people looking for and searching for black ipods.
Test Multiple AdsBy running miltiple adwords ads you can see which performs best and which is a waste of money. Over time, By running mulltiple adwords ads, you will be able to refine your campagn and maximise your sales and conversion through adwords.
You should send each advert to a different URL, This way you can track your numbers a lot easier. Google Adsense will be able to give you stats on how much an advert is clicked, But they can't tell if those clicks are resulting in sales. So it's important that you have a way of doing this yourself.
