Getting Started with Google Ads
What You'll Learn
Whether your budget is $10 or $10 million, you can advertise your business on Google. That's because you pay only when people click on your ads, making pay-per-click (PPC) internet marketing one of today's most cost effective and targeted advertising platforms. Attend this workshop to learn how to market your business through sponsored search results on Google using their advertising platform, Google Ads (formerly AdWords).
Select BDA workshops are now offered for remote participation including this one! The 1/14/2018 date of this course will be available as a live stream.
How It Works:
Simply register as you normally would (registration fees are the same) and indicate in the "notes" field that you prefer to attend remotely. Then, you'll receive an email to a private YouTube live stream right before the class. You'll see two high-definition camera angles and a clear view of the instructor's presentation or computer screen. You'll also be able to ask questions using the "chat" feature.
With one three-hour lecture, you will have the foundation you need to properly set up and launch a Google Ads campaign, and the suggested best practices to maintain and optimize the campaign, ensuring long-term success at an ad spend level that any sized business can manage. This workshop focuses on paid search text ads, but also explores other types of Google advertising, such as display network placements and banner ads. We also discuss the differences between paid and organic search results.

- Google Ads definitions of key terms including keyword match types, quality scores, click through ratios and more
- Proper campaign structure
- Keyword selection
- Ad copy creation
