Of all the marketing distribution channels, paid search might be the single place where marketers are wasting the most money. And that’s not just due to click-fraud or other illicit practices, but more because of poor strategy, a lack of awareness of how search engine ads work, and perhaps an added dose of laziness.
At Marketing Nice Guys, we help organizations understand the nuances of paid search marketing, and provide training and education on the following core areas:
- How the Google auction works
- Paid search strategies and tactics (based on organization type)
- Keyword research
- Match types (broad, broad match modifier, phrase match, exact match, and negative match)
- Extensions and best-practice copywriting
- Ad creation and management
- Bidding, budget management, and pacing
- Ad optimization and A/B testing
