Our PPC team's experience in Ad Strategy and scaling campaigns is second to none and there aren't many industries we haven't operated in with high levels of success and happy clients.
At Global Search Marketing we do our best to cater for all budgets from exciting Start-Ups needing to scale, right up to our super sized FTSE clients. As a guide our minimum management fee starts from £350pcm for smaller clients, but this can range right up to £15k for larger campaign management. Our clients tend to extend their management fees with us quite quickly as they enjoy the fruits of our work and want more !
This is a very specific question depending on the industry and the competitive nature of your market place. That said, for smaller campaigns we recommend between 2-3 times your management fee to provide an effective return and test your market. Often we can work with a smaller budget to demonstrate performance and opportunities before clients have confidence to spend more.
We always provide Admin access to our accounts whilst actively managing your accounts. This is important for our clients and demonstrates our professionalism in managing your PPC accounts and analytics.
This varies depending on the discount our clients wish to be applied. Naturally if you are committing to a 2 year contract the PPC Management fees are notably reduced.
That said, clients with lower budgets often opt for a 3-month trial term contract, whilst those clients whom already utilise PPC Agencies for their management often seek the longer contracts of 12-24 months once our team have impressed with our audits and proposed tactics allowing greater discounts.
All clients receive our standard PPC Management report every month. However, many clients have bespoke reporting &/or high frequency reports depending on their requirements for a small fee.
Our team can also assist with supporting reporting tools such as analytics.
This directly depends on your management fees, the more your fee the more time we have to manage your accounts. As a rule we are on average in the accounts 2-3 times per week, but this can sometimes be batched into more effective blocks of scheduled time.
Management does involve a host of activities that are not just applied in the account, such as research, strategising and communications, but we are always as transparent as possible. We are always happy to showcase the applied work throughout. Remember our PPC Teams are there to drive performance and grow your accounts, as such they won't waste time unnecessarily.
Sometime clients do require more time on communications or planning, but we liaise closely to find the right solution, allowing maximum time on the accounts.
There are a whole spectrum of metrics that can indicate levels of success of your PPC campaigns. These metrics can relate to an objective that you set for us once we start managing your account, some of which include:
Generate Brand Awareness
A high volume of impressions signifies that your ads have been shown to many users and when this is paired up with strong & engaging branded creatives it helps drive awareness and brand recognition.
Impression share is the percentage of impressions that your ads receive divided by the total number of impressions that your ads could receive. Across both Search and Display networks, a high impression share suggest you are generating brand awareness across a larger proportion of your target market against your competitors.
A high volume of clicks on your ads reflects a larger amount of traffic that is driven to your desired landing page. With measurement tools in place such as Google Analytics, you can then analyse the performance and behaviours of this traffic to inform your next business strategies.
With CTR being the total number of clicks divided by the total number of impressions, it is an indication of how appropriate your ads are and how relevant your audience is. By optimising CTR, you are able to drive a higher volume of users that click through to your website.
With accurate conversion tracking implemented, you can define certain actions on your website or app as PPC ‘conversions’. With an objective of generating leads, such as contact form submissions, phone calls or live chat queries, then a high volume of these conversion actions would suggest the campaigns are successful.
Cost per acquisition is defined as the your ad spend costs divided by the amount of conversions you received. The lower this metric is, the more successful the campaigns have been for generating cheaper leads from your advertising.
Aside from the volume of conversions as mentioned above, accurate conversion tracking for your eCommerce business can unlock the conversion value metric. This shows how much revenue is generated from your PPC advertising campaigns.
This translates to your ROAS (return on ad spend) in which you can define what percentage you made in revenue relative to the amount you spent advertising costs. This objective helps you define KPI’s based on profitability.
With search ads you can maximise your presence in the search results by utilising tools called Ad Extensions. These extensions essentially allow us to include additional information surrounding your business outside of normal headlines and descriptions lines of your ad text and therefore increase the size of your ads in the results as well as allowing for more details and links to engage with.
Examples of Ad Extensions that we may include within your PPC search campaigns include:
Links with text that lead to other relevant sections of your site, much like those that can be seen in with the companies that feature in the top organic search results.
Small snippets of information which are used to promoting your business’ unique selling points and offerings.
These allow for short lists to be shown as part of your search result ad in which we are able to show things such as your product categories, services, programmes, destinations and so on.
Call extensions give advertisers the opportunity to include a chosen business phone number to drive through phone calls before users even hit your site.
Similarly to the Structured Snippet Extensions, Price Extensions help us promote your products and services in the form of a list of “from” prices which helps with campaign click-through rates.
We can use this extension type to show users any promotions, sales or offers that your business is currently running and even add in a link through to a relevant sale landing page.
