In 2019 we celebrate 10 years of Official Google Ad Partner!
Everyone knows Google Ads (the official new name for Google Adwords). This blog is about the additional techniques we use to generate more leads through Google Adwords, without simply increasing the budget.
In 3 steps:
The first step in marketing is to stand out. If you don't, you won't get noticed, won't get any reactions and won't get any clients. Standing out in Google means being directly visible when someone looks for you. For this to work, you need to know how people search: so what words do they use (both typing and using their voice). This is really where it all begins. If people don't use your keywords, your results will be very limited. So how do you know which keywords to use? In Google Trends you can easily discover which keywords are often used. But wait! We already took care of that. Check it out, from 2004 (foundation of Hidden Profits Marketing) until now.
Notable: 'yoga' and 'gym' are becoming more and more popular keywords and most shocking: even on their way to beat the word 'fitness'! The words 'personal trainer' and 'boutique club' are barely used.
Everyone uses Google to search. Or YouTube. But that's actually Google as well. So everyone uses Google. How do you use Google? Most people don't use a computer anymore, they use a mobile. But that is not even the latest trend anymore... Voice search is the new thing (voice activated search), because it's so simple and easy!
Google is all about quick and satisfying results:
What do you prefer: a quick and satisfying answer, or endless clicking and browsing to finally find what you're looking for? You get the point. And so does Google. If this doesn't happen in the blink of an eye, you're gone. So, the key is to match your Google Ad to the right keywords and to be directly visible when people are looking for you. The result: an increase in your number of online leads!
Google constantly improves their algorithm. The algorithm determines the ranking of your website and your Google Ad. The highscore secret: be relevant, so:
*Increasing your relevance:
It's not about discovering the magic keyword, it's about offering info that is truly relevant. Surprisingly, showing less information leads to more leads then showing a lot of information. So if your website lacks the latest techniques and is not designed to generate leads and buyers, you are definitely missing out.
Why this is so important? Up until now, every decent marketing agency connected specific landing pages to Google Ads. These are pages with 1 goal: generate interaction. Thanks to the latest innovation of our Innovation Team, Google can now use your whole website! This means the chance to appear higher in Google increases, big time. In order to accomplish this, your whole website needs to be designed to generate leads and must meet the latest technical requirements. If you succeed in this the way our Innovation Team did, you'll reach more people who are open to buy, and get them right to the top of the buying pyramid:
Result for our Growth Formula clients (with the CMS system that can be updated).
The number of leads that our clients generate through Google Ads went up by 33% during the test phase! So with the exact same effort: 33% more leads! Even better: because your relevance and website ranking increases, your costs may possibly drop! That's a nice reward from Google.
As a bonus for our clients: we now have more data that we can analyse on a level of club, type of club, region, country and even on level of continent. Based on that we can create even better, more relevant and more user friendly landing pages and marketing funnels for all our clients, which will generate even more leads on their website!
