Mac Users Now Can Get Bing Ads Editor!

Mac User Now Can Get Bing Ads Editor!

How long is a long time? Well it all depends on whether or not you are Mac or Windows user, especially if you manage paid ad campaigns on Bing. After years and years and years of waiting, Mac users will now have the option of getting the Bing Ads Editor with all the features of the PC version on their Mac.

From what I understand from others in the industry, the Bing editor for Mac users has long been the most highly requested feature on the Bing Ads user forum. I also here the beta version will be available in the US at SMX Advanced in Seattle on Wednesday. If you’d like to check out more information, head over to the Bing’s support link regarding this new feature and get caught up on all the goodies and updates they plan on releasing with this new tool!

Google Adwords Testing SMS Messages from Display Ads

Google Adwords Testing SMS Messages from Text Ads

Google was recently testing an SMS texting feature on their display ads allowing a user (customer/client) to text the advertiser directly via the display ad. There’s not a whole lot of information on this feature just yet, but as you can imagine should this feature roll out, you can expect it to be popular among businesses and merchants that prefer to receive inquiries directly to their mobile device and offer a potential user of their services another avenue to engage them further.

My Thoughts

How practical or feasible it will be for larger businesses to utilize this feature is yet to be determined. Maybe this new feature is more affective for smaller businesses.

I also see the revenue angle Google is taking and the increased potential for ads to be clicked on or utilized by a user. Therefore if the feature is used, advertisers should test it and be conscious of the potential increase in CTR or costs, which of course could be a good thing, if it leads to conversions! Ultimately how effective this new feature will be is still yet unknown.

Match Type Strategies for Your Adwords Campaign: Part 1

Logo

What Match Type Should I be Using?

 

 

A very common question asked of me on a regular basis by our clients. When starting your Adwords campaign, it can be very confusing as to what match types you should use when driving traffic. Not all match types are applicable and some match types are only useful during certain phases of your campaign. If you are not familiar with Match types in Google Adwords, I’ll use the official definition by Google provided below:

“Each keyword uses a matching option to help control which searches should trigger your ad to show. You can choose one or more matching options for a keyword. If you don’t specify a particular matching option, keywords are considered as broad match.”

So in essence, each Match Type allows you to open or constrict traffic on any keyword you may be bidding on in the Adwords Google platform.

Different Match Types 

Here’s a summary of the options I took from their Adwords support page:

Broad match allows your ad to show for searches on similar phrases and relevant variations, including synonyms, singular and plural forms, possible misspellings, stemmings (such as floor and flooring), related searches, and other relevant variations..
• Example: kittens
• Searches that can match: kittens, kitten photos, adopt a kitten

Broad match modifier allows your ad to show for searches that include your broad match keyword or close variations of your broad match keyword.
• Example: +adopt +kitten
• Searches that can match: adopt kitten, how to adopt a kitten, best kitten to adopt

Phrase match allows your ad to show only for searches that include the exact phrase, or close variations of that exact phrase, with additional words before or after.
• Example: “adopt a kitten”
• Searches that can match: adopt a kitten, adopt a kiten, how to adopt a kitten

Exact match allows your ad to show only for searches that use that exact phrase, or close variations of that exact phrase, and no other words.
• Example: [adopt a kitten]
• Search that can match: adopt a kitten, adopt a kiten

Negative match ensures that your ad doesn’t show for any search that includes that term.
• Example: -free
• Searches that won’t match: free kitten adoption, free kitten calendars, who wants to free the kittens

Disclaimer: Understanding the role of each Match Type is extremely important and a pro understands how to use them effectively and efficiently, if your not a professional, hire one, you are better off hiring an agency like ours or someone who does this full time and helps you avoid the costly mistakes and pitfalls! If your not going to hire someone and want to go at it alone, please read on.

Rule#1: Know the Rules! Invest the Time and Energy In Understanding What You Are About to Do!

Each Match Type can either harm you or help you depending on your strategy and current phase of your campaign. It never seems to amaze me how little people know about Match Types, especially someone who has never used Adwords. The worse part is typically the user is encouraged by Google and/or the automated suggestion tool to add numerous keywords, but is never really explained how Match Types can help them, therefore they create an automatic default process for the user which typically means they will be using the Broad Match Type and typically this doesn’t help nor does it explain to the user the financial repercussions of this decision!  Therefore my first tip/rule is: Know the Rules! You cant be successful if you don’t understand the rules.

In the next few articles, I will be expanding on these ideas, providing additional insight into how to strategize using Match Types!

Apple Is Entering the Paid Search Game! I Have Pics-Sneak Peak

Apple is now getting into the paid search business-booyah! Back in April, a report surfaced on Bloomberg that Apple was considering entering the Paid Search game for their App Store. As most of us in the industry already know, Paid Search is a huge money maker for tech companies. Am I surprised Apple hasn’t instituted something already for their App Store? No! I am not surprised because as of late they seem to be behind on just about everything else when it relates to cellphone design technology, virtual reality and that old, cumbersome, music hostage music player they call: Itunes! 🙂

Now, I think this new feature will actually benefit those hard core App developers in numerous ways. As we all know the App Store is over saturated with Apps therefore making it difficult for developers to monetize because most of the time their Apps can’t even be found! (They are buried deep somewhere in the dark, deep corridors of the App Store.) With this new feature, developers can now drive traffic and attention to their App and really expose their brand and their creation in a much simpler fashion. There is still no access to their platform, but I’ve included screen shots and pictures of what you can expect!

Bing Ads to Now Support Extended Text Ads as Well in Their User Interface

Bing Ads to now support extended text ads as well in their user interface

bing-ads-giantB-word-1920

Well I guess Bing felt like they had to follow in Google’s footsteps, again, and begin allowing users to expand their text ads within the Bing user interface.  As mentioned in my previous article this is good news for advertisers that can now add additional content or copy that will make their ads more lucrative and hopefully help them increase their overall click through rate.

How To Leverage This Update for Your Benefit 

One of the strategies that we are currently using with some of our clients is that now with this new feature we are considering making the ads a little bit more diverse and including numerous areas of service and products that we that we feel will give us the greatest chance of getting somebody to click on our ads. We think this new feature will not only help a standout but hopefully increase the click through rate on high converting ads that we currently manage and hopefully help us convert more business on how you converting pages that we’ve created within our sites. Of course all this has to be balanced out with the reality that with a higher click through rate I can also expect a higher spend but obviously we’re going to measure that up against conversions and ensure we still get a positive ROI.

Google will soon be allowing you to expand your text ads. Are you ready?

Google will soon be allowing you to expand your text ads. Are you ready?

Google recently announced that they will be allowing advertisers to expand the number of characters that are written on text ads. As you probably already know we are currently now limited to 25 characters on the headlines of a text ad and 35 characters on the description line. This new and very attractive feature,for those who desire to increase their overall click through rate and expand their brand awareness is ideal and should be fully taken advantage of!

I don’t think I’ve heard of a more exciting Google feature in recent years. I think this is an excellent opportunity for all advertisers to consider what kind of copy or content they may want to add so they can make their ads more compelling and hopefully increase their overall click through rate in their campaign strategies. Bottom line, every word on a headline and description line matters and connects one thought with another, therefore don’t underestimate the power of content and copy on your ads.

This roll out is expected to be completed over the next several months, my suggestion to merchants and advertisers is to keep an eye out and take advantage of this new feature!
