Google Ads Overview

By this point in time, it’s safe to say that most of you have a general idea of what Google Ads is. 

Google Search Ads allows advertisers to write text ads that can then be shown to users when a specific keyword or search phrase is typed. 

Advertisers can also target users by geographical radiuses where the user searched. 

Users can also be filtered by other demographics such as age, gender, income, etc.

In short, if you want to show up at the top of Google…

..It’s a pay-to-play game.

Over the years Google has expanded their advertising channels to accommodate different industries better. 

Display Advertising is a network of websites that “lease” space on their website or blogs for advertisers. 

Google acts as the broker between advertiser and website so you can show banner ads to relevant users

Then, Google incorporated advertising into Google Maps

This is shown by the green square on the map above. 

Google Shopping is an advertising platform for e-commerce websites:

And the list goes on for more niche industries like Google Hotels and Google Local Services. 

The point is:

Google Ads has grown to a much larger ecosystem today than what is what even a few years ago. 

One of the main benefits of having Google Ads Management Services is that you are going to save time, increase ROI, and have a navigator (making sure you are making the right decisions in what otherwise could be a confusing landscape).

Now that we have covered Google’s Advertising channels where do we start?

Let’s start with your industry first. 

Who is Google Ads Services For?

When looking at Google Ads, I first like to look at your specific industry. 

As a general rule I like to think of Google Ads like this:

Google Ads are for advertisers targeting consumers who already know what they want, but need to find it”

Google is NOT for advertisers marketing new products or services that the consumer needs to be made aware of.”

Here is a simple example…

If your toilet breaks and begins leaking water everywhere- what do you do?

Most people would go to Google and type “Plumber near me.”

This person already knew what they needed and they utilized Google to find the service they needed. 

Now, let’s say you invented a new ice cooler (complete with speakers, LED lights, and a seat on it).

People can’t utilize Google to find a product that they don’t know exists.

Innovation and new ideas/industries are better off advertising on social media platforms. 

If you still aren’t sure where your business fits- here is one simple statement I believe to be true:

“Google Ads are for businesses offering a services that’s marketing directly to the consumer (or B2C Services).”

How Much Should Google Ads Management Cost?

Google Ads most commonly charges advertisers based on a per click basis. 

If you’ve heard the term PPC- this is a marketers term meaning Pay-Per-Click advertising. 

Typically, when you hit a threshold of $350- Google charges your card for that amount and resets your threshold bar. 

To determine the TOTAL cost to run Google Ads- we can break this into 2 parts. 

  1. How much should you spend on Google Ads?
  2. How much should you pay an agency to run your ads?

Budgeting for Google Ads is fairly straightforward.

Take 7% of your business’s annual gross revenue. 

This should be your average annual marketing budget. 

50% of your marketing budget should go to marketing assets and ad spend. 

50% of your budget  should go towards marketing services and/or labor. 

This is only a general rule but it is fairly common practice in many industries. 

What are my options for Google Ads Management Services?

When it comes to management fees there are a few variables to consider.

You can typically expect to pay $250/mo-$2,500/mo for Google Ads Management Services. 

This is definitely a “you get what you pay for” type of service. 

You can expect management services to cost roughly the same as your monthly ad spend. 

Included in packages are typically:

Keyword Research

Landing Page Designs

Google Ads Account Creation and Setup

Call-To-Action design/optimization

Monthly A/B Testing

## of ad groups (varies)

Monthly Reports

**As a little insider tip. Ask your agency if they do SKAGs. 

This stands for single keyword ad groups. 

It’s a great way to know if your potential agency is competent and also not lazy. 

You’ll thank me later for a much better return on investment.**

Packages are typically charged in 4 different ways. 

Hourly- Straight forward, pay based on hours. This is typically a structure for single person agencies. 

Flat Monthly- flat monthly fee for management. Great for starting out. Can be harder to scale if your ads work as packages are usually set. 

Spending Tiers- This can be a percentage of your total ad spend or tiers like $400/mo up to $1,000 in ad spend. This is a great package for scaling but can get a little expensive. 

Performance- Ok I’m going to be 100% transparent. I am biased towards this package.

Because we offer this and clients have been very happy with this structure. 

Pay-for-Performance acts as a pay-per-conversion model. 

So you only pay when your ads work. And if they don’t… Well that’s on your agency to find out. 

This minimizes your risk when starting out (and Google Ads almost always takes a few months to really optimize). 

It also rewards your agency for doing a good job. Giving them a greater incentive to make sure your ads are running at peak performance.
