Google Adwords and the Art of Great ROI

Share

Does Google Adwords Campaign give a great ROI? This is a question that most newbies to the system ask before they begin – and in some cases after they have sunk some money into it already. But while the truthful answer is a definite ‘yes’, it can be difficult to get to the answer yourself.

If you are at the very beginning of this voyage of discovery, it is worth bearing some important points in mind before you go ahead and use Google Adwords for your own PPC campaign. Firstly you should remember not to be cynical about using it. It’s true that if you expect it to fail it probably will do. Remember that there are plenty of business people and webmasters out there who make money from PPC campaigns every single day. They know how to do it – but you can bet that they would have gone through a period of time when they struggled to achieve what they wanted to achieve.

So this is the first and perhaps most important thing to remember. Start off with the right attitude and you will find your way to success.

Next up you have to know what you are doing. A lot of the people who have failed with pay per click campaigns have dived in without first seeing what they were supposed to be doing. Would you operate a vast piece of machinery without first being taught how to do it? Would you drive a car unless you had first passed a test to ensure you could do it properly and safely?

Of course you wouldn’t. Yet with PPC people think it’s easy, they dive in and they spend lots of money they will never get back. Research and understanding are necessary here too, so make sure you don’t underestimate the importance of this.

So perhaps the question should not be ‘can you make money with Google Adwords?’ Perhaps it should be ‘HOW can you make money with Google Adwords?’ It’s funny how the addition of just one small word can turn the whole question on its head, isn’t it?

It’s a good idea to find people who are already making the money to share some stories with youor hire a PPC company. . If you go to some of the article directories online you will find plenty of articles about PPC and how it works. Many people will share some secrets there and you can follow them back to their own websites, since they usually share their URLs at the foot of the article. Read as much as you can and understand how some people really are making money in different ways from pay per click marketing.

All you have to do is to settle on a way of creating your own route into PPC marketing. How will you use it? Why will you use it? How can you invest a sum of money into it that you are happy with so you can earn more money in return?

Asking all these questions will lead you to the answer you seek.
