We’ve seen a simple example – One ad – One target geography – One target audience – But, a “good” marketing campaign will be more complex
Advanced Adwords Typically will have multiple of demographics – Interest areas – Geography – Motivation
Advanced Adwords Interest Areas – What courses are they interested in? eg: photography, nursing credits, sales training, etc. Is it business or leisure related? – Maybe they don’t know! eg: adventure based leisure activity eg: improving company sales
Advanced Adwords Multiple campaigns – Each campaign can have A daily budget A set of geographical targets A series of ad groups – Each ad group can have Multiple text ads A list of keywords
Advanced Adwords Determine geography – Select by country, state and city – Drill down to specific postal codes – Note – large programs or online programs Set up multiple campaigns to target different courses in different geographies
