Certified Gas Heating have been advertising their business on Google Ads for many years with decent results, but that success was starting to wane with increases in competition. They approached me for help in keeping their ads successful and wanted to know how to beat the competition, due to the fact that they have very little in-house experience managing Google Ad campaigns.
I’ve seen many businesses have success with poorly targeted ads for the sole reason that there is a lack of competition. As soon as competition comes into the picture, their ads suffer because the competition have targeted specific locations. I knew I had to set up a new search campaign and target specific locations, but first I had to ask Certified Gas Heating detailed questions about their operations and also find out what the competition were doing.
Through getting to know Certified Gas Heating’s business, I learned that they wanted to target a higher position for emergency gas and plumbing queries in particular. I set up a new search campaign with this in mind and targeted the specific locations to help with this.
The results were as I expected with these types of requirements. Click through rate improved by 16% because I made the ads more targeted. If the ads are targeted in the right place to the right people, it’s understandable that more people will click. It still requires my certain set of skills and knowledge however to do this. Another expected factor from this was that traffic increased by 31%. The overall cost dropped by 25%, which Certified Gas Heating were very pleased with.
