What is Your Competitor Paying for Their PPC Ads?

Sorry I've been M.I.A for the last 2 weeks... Leon & I have been furiously preparing for the launch tomorrow (Yes – I still have 1 hour left in today – Monday). Unit the 1:00 pm launch (EST), here's a great conversation that I had yesterday with a Marketing Department Head and former colleague...

iSpionage is Going Nuclear…

on Competitive PPC Advertising After one of our Search Marketing Agency users told us how he used iSpionage to become a PPC superpower, we're SERIOUSLY considering taking iSpionage off the open market. First, we need to verify that his actions are not a fluke. Intermediate and novice users beware – this employs the use of AdWords Editor and can potentially blow out your budget in a few minutes with a very high CTR. I'm also personally testing our user's system and am contacting some of our PPC expert iSpionage users to get their feedback on employing the strategy below.

Your Most Important Customer is…

Google Actually let me rephrase that - Google SHOULD BE your #1 pay-per-click (PPC) customer. When advertisers & business owners (i.e. you & me) start running AdWords, it is in our best interest to embrace what Google wants. And just like our favorite customers, once we know their likes and dislikes, we find that they WANT TO reward us by driving campaign costs down and conversion rates (i.e. revenue) up.

What Google AdWords Users Want

I recently left a large company where I wrote Marketing Requirement Documents (MRDs) in Marketeeze. As I'm sure you know, Marketeeze is a language invented by a marketer's cabal to give engineers one more problem to figure out. The reason I'm joking about this (but not really) is because the next part is a bit embarrassing… I want to share what I've learned in my years of running PPC programs… in conversational English. Though it sounds silly, it's an effort to type stuff up without using phrases like gap-analysis, long-tail keywords and 'holistically looking at our analytic dashboards to extrapolate a psychographic micro-strategy.'
