Throw Me Something Mister: Comparing PPC and Mardi Gras

Carnival season is here and Mardi Gras day is right around the corner. In New Orleans, the city that I call home, the excitement is palpable. The traditional treat of the season, king cake, can be found everywhere, and people are planning their schedules around parades. Figuring out what to wear can be a big task; maybe you’re making a costume for the big day, or perhaps you’re taking a tux to be dry cleaned before one of the dozens of balls. For me, I’ll balance my marketing life with my New Orleans life, and in doing so, I started to think… wow, PPC is the Mardi Gras parade goer of marketing. Sounds crazy? Stick with me on this, and I’ll explain.

Anyone Can Do It
It’s true; anyone can run a pay-per-click search campaign. You could set one up right now if you really wanted. It is also true that anyone can attend a Mardi Gras parade. Sure, some people will have to travel further than others, but they are open to the public. The point is, they’re both available to you, and if you wanted to, you could make them happen.


As far as PPC goes, with a few clicks you could get your ads online, but without knowing how to run an ad campaign properly, you can lose a lot of money in a short period of time. The downside for anyone attending a Mardi Gras parade isn’t as bad, but if you go into it blindly, you are way more likely to attend a parade that isn’t worth your time. You could even potentially end up in parade-related traffic and never get to see the parade (it’s awful).

Don’t worry though. There are effective ways to do both of these things.

Get Noticed
If you’re at a Mardi Gras parade, you will want to be noticed by parade riders so that they throw you the best “throws.” Dressing colorfully, but not matching everyone else, is a great way to get noticed. Most parades have signature “throws” that you can only catch from them. For example, the Krewe of Muses will throw hand decorated stilettos. If you pay attention, you will notice that those in the crowd who stand out the most not only take home the most throws, they also take home the best throws.

Let’s not forget that Mardi Gras is really all about the kids and their families. Getting your child noticed by parade riders is a trick that people figured out years ago. When you attend a parade, you will see that the families who have done this before have small ladders with bench seats on top. This guarantees that their 5-year-old is well above the crowd and more likely to get a stuffed animal thrown their way.

It’s true; these same strategies will work for your PPC campaign. For starters, you need to get noticed. This means using ad extensions like call-outs and location extensions. These extra bits of info will expand the size of your ad and can help draw an eye to them. Consider the extensions the equivalent of your extra bit color that helps you stand out.

Just like those ladders that get your kids high above everyone else, you will want to make sure your ads are appearing high above your competitors. Doing this is no easy task. For your ad to rank better than your competitors’ ads, you need to improve your quality score and adjust your bidding strategy.

Are these concepts new to you? Was the Mardi Gras parade ladder new to you? Sometimes it pays to know a pro.

PPC Pro Tips
No matter if you are going to see parades in Mobile, AL or coming to see the real deal in New Orleans, it pays to know someone who has experience. Not only can a local help you pick out the right parades, but they can also tell you the best place to watch them and how to get there with minimal traffic.

The same holds true for PPC. Sure, you can try to do it all yourself, but working with a professional who is certified is going to make life a lot easier. For example, the equivalent of knowing what parade to go to might be knowing what type of ads to run and what ads aren’t worth your investment. Additionally, just like knowing the best way to get to a parade without getting stuck in traffic, a PPC expert will make sure you are delivering your ads to potential customers using the most effective bidding strategy.

4 Things You Should Know Before Hiring a PPC Agency

For many companies, hiring a PPC agency is a big step into the unknown.

You’re not sure what to expect. And you might have some not-quite-accurate ideas about how the relationship will work.

We see this all the time with new clients. It’s why we have a formal onboarding process that helps us set expectations and answer client questions.

But even so, there are some things you should know even before you start looking for a PPC agency to hire.

I’ll use this post to outline four of them.

1. Performance May Not Match Other Channels
Sometimes new clients will decide to launch a PPC program because they’ve been getting outstanding results in a different marketing channel, such as social media advertising.

And so they come with the expectation that they’ll get the same results with PPC.

Unfortunately, that’s not always the case.


It’s pretty standard to have one marketing channel that performs significantly better than other marketing channels.

This can happen for a variety of reasons. But in general terms, some channels are just a better fit for some businesses than others.

That doesn’t mean you won’t get good results with other channels. However, you can’t expect every channel to match the results of your highest performing channel.

So don’t come into PPC with sky-high expectations based on your success in another channel.

You may get great results with PPC. But don’t expect it to blow your mind.

2. The Boss Doesn’t Always Make the Best Account Manager
A good PPC agency will think carefully before assigning an account manager to your account.

They want to choose the account manager with the best mix of PPC experience and industry background as well as enough capacity to take on the work.

At Group Twenty Seven, we’re fortunate to have an excellent group of team members to choose from, with a broad mix of experience and expertise.

Also, we also schedule weekly team meetings where we discuss and review every account. This way, every account gets valuable input from every team member.

However, occasionally a prospective client will specifically request me as their account manager.

While I’m flattered by request, it’s not always a good idea.

Because I’m not necessarily the best person for the job!

Often, other people on my team will have more expertise and experience in a particular vertical than I.

They can also give their undivided attention to clients accounts daily.

That doesn’t mean I’m not involved in client accounts. I work closely with account managers and provide oversight and guidance on every account. And I will serve as team lead for a handful of considerations when it makes sense.

But as an executive, my focus is more on long-term client account strategies than day-to-day monitoring and optimizing.

Sometimes, I think this request is driven by concerns about staff turnover. I recognize that having different people repeatedly assigned to your account can be disruptive.

But we try to keep these kinds of changes to a minimum. Also, we frequently assign two or three team members to larger accounts to help ensure continuity.

However, having a fresh set of eyes on an account isn’t such a bad thing. It can often spark new ideas and fresh perspectives.

3. Not Every Agency Is the Same
If you know what you want—and don’t want—when you work with an agency, ask for it.

Don’t assume that every agency is the same or works the same way.

For example, sometimes clients are disappointed when they hire an SEO agency after having worked with us for a while. They discover that many of the processes they thought were standard among agencies aren’t in fact standard at all.

In a way, this is reassuring to us. We like to think we set high standards for customer service and account management. Basic things, like responding to calls and emails in a timely matter, are a given.

But we’ve heard from some clients that not all agencies are as responsive.

Similarly divergent standards are also found with client status meetings.

At the start of each client engagement, we’ll establish a reasonable schedule of meetings where we can update the client on their accounts. And if the client wants the occasional ad hoc meeting as well, we’re happy to accommodate.

But some agencies are reluctant to meet at all. Others want to meet nonstop. And some refuse ad hoc meetings.

Often, these divergent standards can be explained by differences in approach.

We take a proactive approach to client accounts. Some agencies take a reactive approach.

With a proactive approach, we look at each account as a team at least every week. The account manager will look at the statement much more often, usually daily, sometimes hourly.

We’re actively looking for potential problems as well as identifying opportunities to optimize and improve performance.

In contrast, with a reactive approach, accounts are only looked at when a problem is evident or when a client calls with a question. Otherwise, the account is largely left untouched.

This may explain how some agencies can assign 80 accounts to a single account manager!

So if you know what you want in an agency, whether it’s responsiveness or updates or a proactive approach, be sure to ask for it.

4. A Deal Isn’t Always a Deal
Some companies like to ask for a discount whenever they secure new vendor contracts.

While I can see the logic behind asking (who doesn’t like saving money?), this policy can sometimes backfire.

For example, one of our clients asked for a discount when he hired a well-known SEO agency. The SEO agency quoted him $10,000 per month; he negotiated them down to $5,000.

He was thrilled with this deal!

But guess what? The combined experience of his account managers totaled less than one year.

Did this SEO agency decide to give my client only what he’d paid for? Perhaps.

This “ask for a discount” approach seems silly when agencies can usually find ways to accommodate prospective clients with smaller budgets. For example, they could reduce project scope or implement over a more extended period.

I never negotiate our fees with potential clients. I’m very comfortable with the service, expertise, and results my team provides, and I’m convinced we deliver excellent value to our clients.

Besides, the focus shouldn’t be fees. It should be ROI because good returns can more than makeup for expenses.

But when you ask for a discount up front, you risk poisoning the agency-client relationship before it even gets started.

Set Realistic Expectations at the Start
If you’ve never worked with an agency before, it’s hard to know what to expect.

So consider these four things before you leap.

Because when you do, your chances of developing a successful partnership with your PPC agency will significantly improve.

New reserves report shows large jump in President Energy’s Argentinean potential (PPC)

President Energy (LSE: PPC) sat at 9.1p on Friday morning after revealing a significant increase in the oil and gas reserves present across its assets in Argentina.

A new, independent hydrocarbon reserves report found that the firm’s net 1P and 2P reserves in the country’s Neuquén Basin increased over the previous year by 82pc and 41pc respectively to 8.1MMboe and 11.4MMboe.

Peter Levine, chairman, and group chief executive said: ‘The increases in key producing reserves and value in the Neuquén Basin in Argentina and its higher contribution to entire Group reserves reflect our successful and continued focus on that area. The report and our continued cash generation is a clear explanation of our philosophy of value over volume underpinned by the success of President’s acquisitions policy in the last 18 months and our concentration on margins.

‘Accordingly, we remain focused on materially increasing profitable hydrocarbon production combined with reserves growth. With the benefit of the latest acquisitions made in December, including the strategic gas pipeline and infrastructure, we are working diligently towards significantly growing our gas production this year as well as oil, thereby providing a more balanced energy portfolio.’

Boost Google Ads’ Quality Score for PPC Success

Google Ads’ satisfactory rating is a bid multiplier which can make buying commercials at the great pay-per-click on advertising platform much less expensive. An excessive best score is also a strong indicator of PPC success, so boosting an ad’s excellent rating should result in more interactions and income.

Google’s search engine is popular as it works. Those results might be a top natural link, a carousel, a nearby p.C., or even an ad.

If the advertisements Google affords are applicable and beneficial, users gained’t mind them, and they might even like them. A happy user is also possible to preserve coming again to Google for textual content or voice searches.

Similarly, advertisers are glad while their advertisements are provided to interested customers who click on and purchase. So Google wins while it could display the nice feasible ads for a given question.


Ad Rank
Since the goal is to reveal the first-class ads, Google has to avoid the temptation to clearly award the top ad spots to the very best bidder. To this quit, the employer employs a proprietary set of rules (or process) it calls Ad Rank.

With Google Ads’ public sale format, advertisers area bids on key phrases or groups of keywords. The advert public sale employs a 2d-price version, which means the very best bidding employer doesn’t definitely pay what it bids. It pays the subsequent maximum bid or simply slightly greater. Advertisers can experience secure bidding a real restrict for the reason that the amount they surely pay might be adjusted down.

For instance, if Amazon bids $5 for a key-word and Walmart bids $four for the equal key-word, Amazon could pay $four.01, that’s just slightly extra than the next highest bid.

Taking this a step in addition, the order in which classified ads are proven “isn’t primarily based simply on bids,” stated Google chief economist Hal Varian in a 2014 presentation. “We want to expose greater useful ads in a better role on the consequences page due to the fact users want to peer relevant ads.

“So we remember some different factors in addition to an advertiser’s bid. Google combines your bid with a couple of first-rate elements — the click-through price, the touchdown page, the ad relevancy in addition to the predicted impact of advert codecs — to calculate a score in your ad, referred to as Ad Rank.”

Ad Quality Score
The “nice elements” Varian described are together an ad’s nice rating. The specifics of ways best score is calculated and how “combining” a exceptional score with an advertiser’s bid works is a Google mystery. It is believed that quality rating is a multiplier of kinds.

Imagine 4 advertisers bidding $10, $8, $6, and $four respectively for the keyword “shoes.” Quality score is stated on a scale of 1 to ten, wherein one is the worst viable score and 10 is the exceptional. Let’s assign quality ratings of one, three, five, and seven to the 4 advertisers.

Next, Google might multiply the advertiser’s bid by means of its pleasant score. So the excessive bidder could have an Ad Rank of 10, that is $10 instances the best score of one. Advertiser 3 might end up with the first-class Ad Rank and therefore the exceptional role due to the fact its Ad Rank could be 30 ($6 multiplied with the aid of a first-class score of 5).

While Google’s actual technique for calculating Ad Rank could be extra complicated than this case, improving your organization’s excellent scores way that your ads will be more likely to show up in a pinnacle advert function even if your bids aren’t as high as other advertisers.

The exceptional rating have to be one of the key overall performance indicators PPC entrepreneurs use to optimize their campaigns.

Back in 2014, Varian defined 4 factors impacting advert great, together with predicted click on-thru price, touchdown page experience, advert relevance, and using ad extensions and formats.

More these days, Google has been reporting simply the first three. So, in case you need to improve nice ratings, you possibly need to attention on these first.

Start with click on-thru fee. Some PPC professionals advise that click-thru fee is probably the maximum vital factor for swiftly improving your ad’s quality rating for a selected key-word or keyword phrase.

In a manual called “Hacking AdWords,” advertising software and controlled services company WordStream defined a number of the traits of debts with very high first-rate rankings. Chief amongst those traits became “extremely good click on-via costs.”

“Theoretically, there are a lot of things that move into Google best rating. But the single most critical element is certainly normalized click on-thru price,” wrote the authors of the WordStream manual.

To enhance the CTR:

Improve the shape of advert campaigns and advert groups
Reduce the number of keywords in a given advert institution, perhaps even developing single keyword advert corporations
Add negative key phrases to the related advert group
Optimize ad headlines and improve the ad’s call to movement
Include the keyword within the display URL
Consider the consumer’s intent
Include ad extensions
Split test advertisements.
To enhance the landing pages associated with every advert:

Improve web page load instances
Ensure there are links to the privateness coverage and terms of use
Create applicable campaign and advert-group-particular landing pages
Ensure the page content carefully suits the advert’s keywords and reason
Make sure Googlebot can move slowly the landing page.

The PPC chief also said he hasn’t known as any of his former colleagues inside the Conservative Party inside the House of Commons or the Senate, to try to convince them to join the PPC as candidates. He maintained that his party would discipline a full 338 applicants in fall’s popular election.

Clarke, who become beat out of the Conservative Party nomination in Nanaimo—Ladysmith, is the People’s Party candidate inside the byelection within the user that was later announced to be held on May 6.

And if users don’t like what they see or enjoy after they’re on your site or landing pages, then your PPC marketing campaign overall performance will go through.

This submits will define just some of the approaches your web site design can impact your PPC program.

1. Responsiveness
We live in a cell international. Whereas humans may have saved a few online activities (which includes buying) for their pc or computer systems only a few years in the past, today extra of these sports is being carried out on cellular gadgets, consisting of capsules and telephones.

The percentage mix of cellular versus desktop traffic varies. But even B2B corporations (frequently the last holdout for “human beings don’t go to our web site on cellular” kind wondering) are seeing extra cell site visitors.

It was once that having a cell-pleasant internet site became the gold popular for cell usability. But no longer anymore.

Today, traffic needs and anticipate a responsive web page. Unlike cell-pleasant websites, the content on sensitive web sites is dynamic.

Images and content material blocks can reposition themselves on the page, relying on the display screen length on which they may be viewed. In this way, they’re less complicated to view and navigate.

When your internet site isn’t responsive, usability is negatively impacted. And while usability is negative, customers are more likely to get pissed off and pass some other place.

And all that problematic work you put into your ad campaign is going to waste.

2. Page Speed
Page pace is another design-associated thing which can have a significant impact on your PPC application.

The latest Search Engine Journal article said that nearly 70 percentage of customers say page velocity impacts their buying decisions.

The Unbounce observe stated inside the article determined that a beautiful 50 percentage of site visitors will go away a domain if they’re compelled to attend greater than 3 seconds!

So even in the case, your site appears exquisite, if it doesn’t load quickly, you have got a hassle.

Page speed is something we check while designing paid seek campaigns. And now and again, clients are taken aback at what we find.

These aren’t “homemade” web sites either. They’re professionally advanced – however, that’s no guarantee that pages will load quickly.

We examined one client web page, for instance, and located that their cell score changed into two on a scale of one hundred (with one hundred being fastest and zero slowest)!

As you may believe, our consumer wasn’t glad for their developer.
You don’t need to anticipate someone to do this trying out for you. Doing your self is simple.

Google presents a tool for testing cellular web site velocity.

And any other device for a testing computer and mobile website online velocity.

3. Technical Errors
Another common problem with web sites is technical mistakes.

Your site would possibly work simply excellent for you and your group of workers. But then again, you’re probably acting the identical set of moves with the same browser every time.

Potential clients, in comparison, might perform one-of-a-kind capabilities that generate technical errors.

So if web page site visitors ever complain that some detail of your website online isn’t operating, take notice!

Even in the case, you take a look at the detail, and it works best for you, don’t assume it’s a problem solved. Keep looking to see if you could recreate the error. Talk to your developer.

Unfortunately, it’s not sufficient to find a workaround. You can’t say, “Actually, it works if you click on this hyperlink, no longer this one,” and leave it at that.

Because that’s a positive-hearth way to lose your online advertising leads.

4. Aesthetics
In addition to the technical factors of web site design, aesthetics also are vital.

By aesthetics, I don’t mean the shade of blue used on your template. I mean overall effect.

When a domain looks “self-made” or dated, it calls into query the trustworthiness and credibility of your enterprise.

This is especially genuine while it’s the first time a potential consumer interacts with your business.

Just as in face-to-face family members, a horrific first influence can be difficult to conquer on-line. This can undermine your PPC efforts.

5. Conflicting Objectives
As your business modifications and grows, it’s no longer unusual to add more content, pages, and functions to your website.

Over time, you could start to lose sight of your internet site’s primary objective.

Is the purpose to:

Get visitors to shop for?
Get certified visitors to call, email or fill out a contact shape?
Send them to different assets for your website?
Subscribe in your publication?
If you’re not cautious, a number of these goals can start to work in opposition to each different.

And these can undermine your PPC application.

6. Internal Logic & Structure
In addition to constant goals, you furthermore may want your website online to have logical common sense and shape.

As with technical mistakes, your website might seem flawlessly organized to you. You can usually locate what you’re seeking out!

But if online site visitors bitch that they couldn’t locate what they need, then that’s an extreme hassle.

For example, we had one consumer in which we always struggled to locate the information we wished on their website online.

Inevitably, we’d have to call them for help. They’d then send us the URL or assist us in navigating to the proper spot.

This changed into time-consuming and traumatic for us. Imagine how frustrated traffic have to experience!

Get a Third-Party Assessment
Unfortunately, it’s tough to check your internet site appropriately. You’re too near it.

That’s why it’s useful to have a person else to audit your website for you. How easily can they navigate your web site, locate what they’re seeking out and carry out one of a kind movements?

That is trying out will come up with an extra correct picture of capability website design problems.

A Great Website Is Crucial to Great PPC
When you’re new to PPC, it’s clear to get caught up within the minutia of setting together a PPC software.

But before you put too much time into it, ensure issues with your internet site won’t undermine your efforts.

Because a beautiful website – one that’s modern, useful, easy to use and logically organized – is critical in your PPC success.
