Why Take this Course?

This is Module 1 of a three-workshop series that covers how to place and manage Google Ads. Use digital advertising to reach your target audience in search engines to get leads and sales. A search in Google shows the user’s intent: they are looking for the product or service. When you place your ad at the top of Google, your ad appears in front of those people who are actively searching.

This workshop starts by looking at how Google Ads uses accounts, campaigns, ad groups, keywords, ad creative, and landing pages. We then look at how to find and sort keywords. You can easily find tens of thousands of keywords for free with Google Ads, Google Search Console, and Google Analytics. We will show you (with numbered steps and screenshots) how to find keywords. Each section has a summary with a checklist so you can do the work.

When you’ve collected thousands of keywords, you clean up the keywords. If you need to, you can use additional tools to translate your keywords into sixty-six languages. You’ll also see how to test thousands of keywords to find the ones that get impressions and clicks.

You’ll also see how to improve your Google Ads optimization score and other tips.

The workshops are hands-on and practical, with lots of examples, tips, notes, and insights. You’ll see dozens of tactics to apply, including examples for you to copy, paste, edit, and use, along with handy checklists for your work. You can do the work yourself, or, by understanding it, manage staff, agencies, or consultants. You can also apply many ideas from Google Ads to other search engines and social media.

(Can’t attend the live workshop? No problem. All workshops are recorded, and we’ll send you the recording, workbook, and any supplementary materials within a day of completion after we’ve had time to edit the recording.)
