Why Choose Elevate for your PPC Audit?

Often clients come to us because something isn’t working well. Although pay per click is not always the best solution, in the majority of cases, there are issues that can be dealt with that will turn things around. We follow a checklist of items that tell us whether an account is professionally managed.

Although expertly set up automation can help, PPC management is often a labour-intensive process.  We will be able to find out quickly if corners are being cut, or, as is often the case, campaigns are set up for low maintenance rather than best performance.

If, like many companies, you’ve invested a great deal of time and expense on Google AdWords, Bing or Yahoo and you’re not getting the returns you think are possible, call us today to find out why.

What Will the AdWords Audit Tell Me?

adwords auditThe items we examine during an audit are all important in terms of keeping the cost of the individual clicks to a minimum and the conversion of those clicks to leads or sales.After reviewing your PPC campaigns we arrange a call to explain the findings. After the call we send you the report for your records. We check the following and much more:

  • Are campaigns well organised?
  • Are you tracking all conversions correctly?
  • Are you targeting enough keywords?
  • Are the keywords commercially valuable?
  • Are you adding too many keywords to each ad group?
  • Are you using keyword match types correctly?
  • Is ad copy compelling and well written?
  • Are you split testing ad variations correctly?
  • Are ads, keywords and landing pages relevant to each other?
  • Are you using features that lead to better results?
  • Are you using features that damage performance?
  • Is Search Reports optimisation sufficient?
  • Are your bid strategies costing you money?
  • Is your location targeting and exclusion correctly set up?
  • Do you have sufficient numbers of negative keywords?
  • Are you excluding poor placements for Display ads?
  • Have you set up remarketing correctly?
  • Are you linking to Google Analytics?
  • Are there performance issues such as low keyword quality score?

The severity of items requiring attention varies from business to business. We’ve examined accounts where as much as 95% of the Google budget was almost certainly being completely wasted.
