The Brains: The Biggest Mistakes to Avoid When Running PPC Ads

By: Magic PR

[London, UK] [June, 2022]— Pay-per-click advertising (PPC ads) is arguably one of the most successful methods of advertising; by helping you attract and convert customers much, much easier than other forms of digital marketing.

One of the most common PPC mistakes marketers make is failing to track conversions efficiently. Companies that run ads without the correct conversion tracking cannot assess how their ads are performing and cannot effectively optimise towards the most valuable goals.

Moreover, ensuring your pages link to relevant, engaging landing pages is also important. Instead of sending potential customers to your home page, you should set up product-specific landing pages instead of a generic page that won’t engage them further.

Furthermore, failing to use negative keywords correctly will essentially slow down the process of reaching your target audience. Marketers should implement a negative keyword list for keywords and phrases that you don’t want your ads to appear in or relate to, this helps Google determine the most relevant audience for your topics and keywords and helps you spend less money on ads that are not part of your brand image or strategy.

Another mistake to avoid when using PPC ads is failing to track the metrics that align with your key goals. Tracking metrics such as click-through rate, conversion rate, cost-per-acquisition, cost-per-click will help you strategically reach potential customers.

Speaking of this topic, Lenka Stefanakova, Senior Account Strategist for PPC, says:

“PPC Ads can deliver incredible results to businesses. However, we constantly come across businesses that spend a lot of money on paid advertising but aren’t tracking their results correctly. Conversion tracking is simply the most important aspect of PPC advertising. Without the correct conversion tracking, businesses fail to demonstrate their return on ad spend, and can’t optimise their campaigns effectively.”
