What You’ll Learn in this Workshop
In this workshop, we’ll roll up the shirtsleeves and dig into the Google Ads engine. You’ll see how the bidding system works. When you understand that, you can use lower bids and lower budgets to get better results than your competitors. We’ll also discuss how Google Ads uses Quality Score to set the ranking position of your ad and how much you’ll pay for the click (your cost-per-click).You’ll see how to optimize your Google Ads account for maximum results by managing bids to KPI’s. The workshop also covers software from Google that lets you manage dozens of accounts in one account. And how to use Google Ads recommendations, another powerful Google tool lets you make global changes to your account in a few steps.
Finally, a series of slides, based on Andreas’ experience with dozens of global companies, show you how to manage Google Ads by time zones, continents, and languages. And much more…
Wherever possible, Andreas adds tips, notes, and insights to the slides, so you get information and his experience.

It was comprehensive. He did not talk down to the audience even though we had a variety of experiences. Made it approachable. I like that he said that no one is an expert and that you have to test, test, test.
