During the uncertainty of recent years, marked by lockdowns and other reasons for instability, the internet has been working a lot harder to bring the brands to the people.
It is basically certain that the brands who have not moved with the times are falling behind in the race for online relevance.
This is a death knell for any product or service, as it’s no secret that there are several others out there, hungrily waiting in the wings for their time to overtake a competitor.
Hiring a company that provides AdWords services is the best shot you can give yourself and your brand to remain relevant (and dare I say it, sought after) in the crazy world of SEO and rankings.
This Is Not the Time for DIY
Even if you know your way around a marketing campaign, or if your company has an in-house team that handles marketing and brand campaigns, it is still worth going the extra mile and getting a professional Google AdWords consultant.
While it is a great idea to run your Google AdWords campaign alongside any other marketing endeavors, it is unlikely that regular marketing experts have the same amount of knowledge a Google AdWords consultant has. This position requires refined and very specific skills, and investing in the right person can take your brand much further than it’s ever been.
Trained AdWords consultants will be able to plan and execute your campaign from beginning to end. Bringing the campaign into being goes far further than making it up and leaving it to do its thing.
A successful Google campaign needs constant re-evaluation, updating, re-aiming and adjustment, as market insights reveal new information that was not there before.
The individual or company who runs your Google campaign will help you to not only optimize your website, but also to help you with landing pages, analyzing keywords and coming up with a strategy to help you reach your targets.
Yes, it is an additional expense. But attempting to do it on your own, or worse – going without – can significantly harm your brand.
It is 100% worth the effort to adapt your budget in favor of optimizing your online reach and presence in the pursuit of high quality clicks, that lead to sales.
Who Will Be Right for You?
As soon as you decide to go ahead and to bring a pro on board, the next step is researching and investigating. You need to be clear on what you need and expect from an AdWords company (or individual), and this needs to form part of research.
simplistic as it seems, you also need to like them, as you are in this relationship for the long haul. There are pros and cons to using a large agency, and the same is true for an individual.
The secret is what works best for you, and you should make this choice based on your own preferences. A large agency can come at a price, but often has reliability to offer in exchange.
Smaller might not come with a reputation, but small businesses are often hungry for success and will be willing to put in the work to attain that.
Make Expectations Clear All Round
If you have never worked hand in hand with another agency before, it is worth thinking about what you might expect from the experience. To avoid getting tied down into a situation that might not work out in the long term, consider setting up a short term contract to test the waters.
Be Honest about your needs and expectations, and make sure that this is put on paper and signed for. It is up to you to communicate everything about your brand to the consultant, as the more they know, the better the job they will do in helping you attain your goals and reach your targets.
Have open, frank and honest discussions about your brand, its shortfalls, and strengths, what your vision is and where you need help filling in the strategy to take your brand forward. Make sure that you can realistically envision a long term relationship with your AdWords consultant.
Part of that is reviewing their experience and qualifications. Don’t be shy to ask for a portfolio or reference of their previous work. If you put in the time to find the right person, it will absolutely be worth it in the end.
