Got a Question?
Here’s a list of commonly asked questions and answers regarding PPC management.
How Much Do You Charge?
For Google Ads & Bings Ads management, we charge $550 per month or 8% of total account spend, whichever is greater. Your retainer of $550 is charged at the beginning of each cycle, and any balance is charged at the end of each cycle.
Am I Locked Into A Contract?
Can I Manage My PPC Advertising Myself?
Can Your Provide References?
We have lots of happy clients that have provided us with great testimonials. You can see them on our website.
If all that is not sufficient, let us know. We can contact our clients and see who is willing to chat with you about our service. Note: most of our clients are busy running their business, thus the reason we don’t readily hand out references.
Do You Guarantee Results?
We don’t guarantee results (conversions, click-thru rates, quality scores, etc). There are simply too many variables, and we don’t (in most cases) control your website, landing page or business offerings.
We do guarantee that we know Google Ads and Bing Ads management very well and that your campaigns will be professionally set up and managed based on relevance, search volume, and best practices.
Do You Specialize In My Industry?
We don’t specialize in any specific industry or sector. Over the years, we’ve worked with a wide variety of businesses, from service-based to e-commerce based.
Our focus is on understanding your business and your advertising goals and utilizing our knowledge of PPC advertising, implementing best practices to help you get the best results.
Google and Bing Will Setup My Account For Free?
Often Google & Bing will offer to set up your PPC campaigns for free. Often this service is provided by interns, who are not that experienced with PPC advertising. Many times, the setups are minimal and not managed on a regular basis. The ongoing management service is limited and overall, we have not been impressed with the free services they provide.
Should I Be Doing PPC Or SEO?
Some of that depends on your budget and goals. In most cases, it’s a good idea to do paid advertising (PPC) as well as SEO (optimize your site for organic results).
PPC (Google Ads and Bing Ads) offers the advantage of fast, measurable results and being able to get your site on the first page of search results.
SEO gives your site the advantage of potential free traffic to your site and qualified users. To optimize your site, it typically takes a few months to see results.
What Does Your Service Include?
We set up and manage client’s PPC advertising based on relevance, search volume, and industry best practices. Our services include keyword research, campaign and ad group setup, writing ads, adding relevant keywords, adding negative keywords, and ensuring that your campaign and settings are set up for maximum results.
We can also work with Google’s tag implementation team to ensure that we are accurately tracking results (we would need login credentials to your site or landing page).
Once your campaigns are set up and running, we will initially make more adjustments to your campaigns, and then put your account into a workflow schedule (in most cases, we manage client’s accounts bi-weekly.)
What If I'm Unhappy With Your Service?
For new accounts, we guarantee the quality of our work (setup and management). If after 14 days of starting your service, you are unhappy with the quality of our work, we will cancel your service, delete the work we’ve done, and refund your money for management services.
What If I Want to Cancel Your Service?
What Is PPC?
PPC means pay per click advertising. You bid on keywords and pay each time a user does a search, clicks on your ad, and goes to your web site. You can (or we do) set a maximum cost per click and a daily budget. All of this is flexible and can be adjusted.
What Is Your Setup Fee?
What Kind of Reporting Do You Provide?
We send you comprehensive reports at the end of each 30-day cycle, including campaign reports, ad group reports, keywords reports, and a change history report, which documents all the work done on your account.
We’re also happy to schedule an account review with you, answer questions, strategize and make any changes you’d like.
What Other Services Do You Offer?
We offer landing page design, web design, SEO (search engine optimization), business listing optimization, and more.
What's Your On-boarding Process?
We try to get new client’s accounts set up on the same day, but if not, within 24-48 hours, depending upon logistics. Sometimes we can work from your existing account/campaigns, and other times, we need to do a new campaign setup.
We would first want to talk with you about your business, your advertising goals, etc. We send you a simple, straightforward agreement and once we receive your completed management agreement, we put you in the schedule to work on your initial setup.
Once the initial setup is complete, we will charge your credit card for the first month of service, email you a receipt and begin to monitor your account and make strategic adjustments.
What's NOT Included In Your Service?
White Label PPC Management?
Our white label PPC management is for digital agencies and advertising agencies that serve their clients.
Who Owns My Account?
Who Pays For The Cost of My Advertising?
You pay Google and Bing for any advertising costs. We are NOT responsible in any way for your daily budget or advertising costs. You pay us for our time and expertise to set up and manage your PPC advertising.
