If you're a beginner looking to launch your first Google Ads campaign, it can be overwhelming to figure out where to start. However, with the right strategy, you can create a successful campaign that meets your business objectives. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to create a Google Ads campaign for E-Commerce.

  1. Define Your Campaign Goals: Let's say your e-commerce business sells men's clothing and you want to increase sales. Your campaign goal would be to drive sales through your website.

  2. Identify Your Target Audience: Your target audience would be men who are interested in fashion and looking to buy clothing online. You can further narrow down your audience by targeting specific age groups, income levels, and interests.

  3. Conduct Keyword Research: Use Google's Keyword Planner tool to identify relevant keywords related to men's clothing, such as "men's dress shirts," "men's jeans," and "men's suits."

  4. Create a Budget: Determine how much you are willing to spend on your campaign and allocate your budget accordingly. You can start with a small budget and increase it over time based on your campaign's performance.

  5. Develop Ad Copy: Create ad copy that highlights the benefits of your products, such as "Shop the Latest Styles in Men's Clothing" or "Free Shipping on All Orders." Include a clear call-to-action, such as "Shop Now" or "Buy Today."

  6. Set up Tracking and Measurement: Set up conversion tracking and Google Analytics to track the performance of your ads. This will allow you to see which ads are driving the most sales and optimize your campaign accordingly.

  7. Determine Bidding Strategy: Decide on a bidding strategy that aligns with your campaign goals and budget. For example, you can choose manual or automated bidding.

  8. Launch Your Campaign: Launch your campaign and monitor its performance. Adjust your bids, ad copy, and targeting as needed to improve performance.

  9. Monitor Your Results: Track your campaign results to see how well your ads are performing and to identify areas where you can make improvements. Continuously optimize your campaign to improve performance over time.

Remember to continuously monitor and optimize your campaign to improve its performance over time. By following these steps, you can create a successful Google Ads campaign that drives sales for your e-commerce business.

Google Ad Headlines

Like many people, you would probably be aware of Google Ads headlines.


Just 30 characters required, but it’s the most difficult 30 characters you’ll ever draft.


It is necessary to know what matters, which is why it can be remarkably difficult to come up with a powerful headline.


The good news is that after you’ve had some practice with writing them, they can be quite easy. It’s literally just identifying what types of headlines work best, and then securing your product or service into it.


Let's gear up by writing some strong headlines for Google ads.



#1: The Question

Example: “Looking for ________?”

It is always great to draw someone's attention with questions that they are looking for on Google. Many individuals feel satisfied when you trigger them with a question related to what they are searching for.


#2: Numbers

Example: “________ Ways to ________”

Place a number in the first section. It should be a remarkable one that will attract most people. The second section should be what your product or service commits. For example, if you sell a product that reduces people's stress, your headline possibly “6 Ways to Reduce Stress.”


#3: Location

Example: “__________ in __________” or “_________ _________”

This covers "WHAT ARE YOU?" and "WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?". Place your professional title followed by a location in the first part such as "Lawyer in Toronto." The second part sets the location followed by a professional title, therefore "Toronto Lawyer".


Though look simple to work, that’s the plot. Google Ads headlines demand to be easy. You have a blink of an eye to snatch the attention of online searchers, and showing them you are what they are seeking is the best way to do it.


#4: Buzzwords

Example: “Get __________ w/ Free Shipping”

Well, this one is quite focused on product-based companies. The buzzwords are get, shipping, and free. These words, along with your, save, online, and you seem to lead to more clicks.

#5: Offer

Example: “Save 20% On Our ________”

Many people love a great deal, particularly those willing to make a purchase. An offer headline catches people’s attention because as they state, “Money talks.”

#6: Leverage FOMO: Use the Countdown Timer

Example: “Winter Boots Sale – Flat 25% Off, Only 2 hours left”

FOMO—fear of missing out—may have only begun the marketing dictionary in 2013, but the trick is much more traditional.


Paid search marketers can draw into FOMO by creating a sense of urgency or scarcity, usually through limited-time offers or showcasing peer-group buyers.


The Google Ads countdown timer really counts down the days or hours until the end of a special offer. This way your ad has a better chance of knocking out your contenders’. A countdown builds an immediate threat of loss, drawing into psychological beliefs to boost clicks.


#7: Mix and Match

This one is more of art instead of just filling in the blanks. Depending on what your main keyword is, you will have between 20 characters and 5 characters to use once you have entered your main keyword.


Certainly, if you only have 5 characters left, your choices will be limited. The following list is to get your creative thoughts rolling and come up with the best achievable headlines:

Mix & Match Keywords


Effective headlines are ones that get your target audience clicking through to your landing page. You never know which ones will be the most dominant till you make then live. It is better to do some A/B testing to detect which ones give the best results. Once you know which one gets the most clicks, you’ll be ready to modify those a little to see if it enhances click-through rates even further.

Bidding Strategies To Consider for Search Campaign Creation

Monday 16 January 2017

Whenever you start with PPC (Pay Per Click)  Ads, you have to keep in mind the business goal or objective for running the Ad Campaign.

Bidding Strategies

 Well, there are three types of Bidding strategies as follows:

1. Cost Per Click (CPC) Bidding
2. Cost Per Impressions (CPM) Bidding
3. Cost Per Acquisition (CPA) Bidding

1. Cost-Per-Click(CPC)  Bidding:

There are two types of CPC Bidding

a.) Automatic CPC Bidding: I personally recommend Automatic Bidding because it is the simplest and most common. Set a daily budget & Ads automatically manages bids to bring the most clicks possible.

b.) Manual CPC Bidding: It is the default strategy to manage max. Set the different bid for each ad group in campaign, or keywords, placements. 

2. Cost-Per-Impression (CPM) Bidding:

CPM Bidding focuses on the visibility of ads to increase awareness about brand/product. I would suggest making use of Facebook Advert instead of using CPM Bidding.

3. Cost-Per-Acquisition (CPA) Bidding:

CPA Bidding is used when the campaign is direct-response related. For ex, the campaign focuses on sign-ups or sales. 

Three factors required when using CPA Bidding:
a.) Enable conversion tracking.

b.) Campaign received at least 15 conversions in the last 30 days.

c.) Google Ads system requires this conversion history in order to make accurate predictions about future conversion rate.

Well, I would like to conclude with this, Depending on which networks your campaign is targeting, and whether you want to focus on getting Clicks, Impressions, or Conversions, you can determine which strategy is best for you.
