Think of your account as a living thing that needs to be cared for. Once you have your campaigns built out with all the keywords and ads, you probably think your work is done, but that’s not the case; the work is just beginning. Advertisers need to be cognizant that their account needs to be monitored frequently. Depending on the size of the account, once a day or twice a week should suffice. When going through the account, you should be adjusting bids, monitoring average position, adding negative keywords and testing ad copy to find the highest converters. Without proper care, things can hit the fan quickly, negatively affecting your campaign’s performance and ROI.


  1. Keyword strategy

The most important step for your campaign success is selecting the right/winning keywords for your AD.

Testing is the only way to learn which match type is working great and generating conversions. Once we have the data, we can always optimize the campaign for better results.


  1. Learn from your competitors

You should analyze what your competitors are doing. Do well to learn from their mistakes and try to avoid making the same mistakes. It would be good if you keep an eye on the ads presented by your close competitors. Analyzing competitor activities can help you understand a lot on the usage of keywords and other PPC tactics.
