What is Google Ads in layman's terms?
Google Ads, formerly known as Google AdWords and often referred to as “pay per click advertising” (PPC) is an online advertising platform that allows you to display ads on Google’s search engine results pages and its advertising network.
With Google Ads, you can create targeted ads to reach potential customers who are actively searching for products or services similar to yours.
1) Janice searches on Google for a keyword that is related to your product or service
2) This triggers your Google Ad to appear in the search engine results page
3) Janice sees it and clicks on your Google Ad, arrives on your website, and follows through on your desired Call-to-Action
You only pay when someone (Janice) clicks on your ad, making this a cost-effective way to (quickly) drive traffic, leads, and sales.
“Is Google Ads really worth it? Am I not just wasting our budget?”
Whether you’re a marketing / sales manager, business owner or a founder at a startup, investing in Google Ads can bring significant benefits to your business, including:
Immediate Visibility: Whereas SEO can often take a bit of time to deliver results, Google Ads can quickly place your business at the top of search results, making it highly visible to potential customers, clients, partners or investors.
Targeted Advertising: Google Ads allows you to target specific keywords, locations, and demographics, ensuring your ads are shown to the most relevant audience(s).
Flexible Budgeting: You can set your budget and adjust it at any time, making Google Ads a flexible marketing option that can accommodate businesses of all sizes.
Measurable Results: Google Ads provides detailed performance data, allowing you to monitor your campaigns’ success and make data-driven decisions to optimise your ROI.
Enhanced Conversions: By targeting the right keywords and crafting compelling ads, you can drive high-quality leads and boost your conversion rates..
My topline methodology for Google Ads management
Ask any top Paid Media agency or PPC expert on how to run an effective Google Ads campaign, and they will tell you to start off by looking at things holistically, gaining a deeper understanding of the business, and then mapping out how the Google Ads strategy would plug into and help enable your goals.

Campaign Optimisation: I continuously monitor and optimise your campaigns, adjusting bids, keywords, and ad copy to improve performance and ROI.
