    results and in my view is a must test advanced Google AdWords technique 2 Image Ads We have discussed using image ads on the Google Display Network GDN before in Results Report Issue 60 It is estimated that 60 to 70 of all AdWords clicks come from the Content Network and that around 30 of AdSense Advertisers carry image ads yet only 2 to 5 of all advertisers use image ads We are seeing some really good results with Google image ads with decent levels of traffic and cost per conversion figures of 1 3rd to 1 2 the cost of text ads This means you either save 33 to 50 for the same number of leads or you get 50 to 100 more leads for the same budget If your AdWords results are flagging and you already get reasonable results from the GDN image ads like the examples below from the Google website could put you right back in the game 3 Site Links Site link are interesting What are Site Links well to quote Google again Ad Sitelinks is a feature for search based ads that lets you include up to 4 additional links to deeper content on your site beyond the main landing page Sitelinks extend the value of your AdWords ads by showcasing additional targeted and relevant links for users whose search queries have triggered your ad The following best practices will help maximize your chances of showing Sitelinks Your ad should have one of the top positions above the search results Your ad should have a very high Quality Score Your Sitelinks URLs must direct users to pages that are part of your main website If your ad qualifies to show Sitelinks up to four of the additional links you associate with your ad on the Ad Extensions tab may appear on your ad There is good evidence coming through that Site Links are working very well in some cases However I d be very cautious about adding Site Links to an ad that is directing traffic to a very high performing landing page or opt in page Why send traffic to a less successful page On the other hand listing various product or service options at a deeper level could really help you drive more traffic to the most relevant pages on your site As with all techniques the proof is in the eating or testing in this case You can read more about Sitelinks here 4 Google Display Network GDN Optimised Campaigns This is where you break up an existing campaign running on both the search and display networks and run separate campaigns tailored to each network This allows you to take a more strategic approach to theming the AdGroups leading to more relevant placements of ads and hopefully a higher CTR Tip When you copy the campaign so it can be split I prefer to leave the existing campaign running as the GDN campaign as the learned history of websites that are

    promotion negotiation or cost increases that have not been passed on needs to increase sale volumes by a MASSIVE 50 just to stand still in terms of profit The implications are mind numbing Just to maintain last year s profitability you and your people would have to work 50 harder you may need to drastically increase stock levels your machinery and equipment have to handle 50 more output and that s before you consider the potential negative hit on your cashflow And you make no more profit In fact if you only achieve a 20 30 or 40 increase in sales volume you make less money What about putting your prices up Crazy you may think especially now You can hear your sales people protesting already we ll lose customers our conversion rate will drop you ll go out of business and our competitors will have a field day But consider this Again based on a 30 gross profit margin if you put your prices up by 10 you would have to do 25 less before it affected your net profit In other words you could ship or supply 20 fewer products or services and you d actually be better off You d be doing less work and making more money And you have to ask what are the chances that 20 of your clients would leave if you are doing a great job and providing excellent value The reality is that when we first work with new clients we discover that many undercharge And when they muster up enough courage to increase prices most discover that they keep their clients and continue to win more new clients because they give great service excellent value and go that extra mile They were always worth more and their clients know that I have discussed this issue with CEO s in workshops all over the UK over the last 3 or 4 months When I ask who has raised prices in the last 12 months a surprisingly large number say that they have And when I ask them if they have lost clients as a result the answer in the vast majority of cases is a clear and resounding no and we are talking rises here in the order of 5 10 12 and 15 way above inflation In fact in all cases the effect has been a dramatic significant and immediate increase in profitablity which improves cashflow boosts reserves and allows investment into the business Of course the effect of not charging what they should would have had the opposite effect low or no profits poor cashflow low reserves and no investment Can you see why failing to act could be financial suicide For some businesses with the capacity to handle a 40 50 or more increase in volumes a price cut could result in enough new sales to increase profit and could be the right decision However the reality for most businesses is that a price cut or unaddressed cost

    your expensively acquired prospects are ready to move forward your sales people have given up on them And because no one from your business has been in touch with them for some time top of mind awareness has slipped the prospect re enters the market this time ready to buy quickly but as the figures show often ends up buying from another business You had them and lost them Your business blew it Right now you may be tempted to wade into your sales team and lay the blame at their door But who incentivised them to look for fast buyers in the first place Could it be the monthly or quarterly commission based targets that you set So you can leave your sales team alone They re good at dealing with fast buyers which is important but you need to make sure that as a business someone is taking responsibility for staying in touch with slow buyers the no not yet s The best solution lays in creating a system for staying in to uch with that valuable group of prospects that doesn t rely on your sales team Think of it like the big stacks of jets that circle around above Heathrow every day in a holding pattern waiting their turn to land You need to create a holding system for keeping close to prospects who are not yet ready to buy but will be soon We call this a Prospect Conversion System Simply put it is creating a system for making sure that over the 12 months or more following initial enquiry your business gently but professionally stays in touch with prospects This is not about phoning your prospects ad infinitum It is about creating a thoughtful process or system for staying in touch that identifies when the prospect is ready to land and when they should come out of the holding pattern and go back into your sales process It should NOT be run by your sales people It really is a marketing function where they keep the relationship alive only handing it back to the sales team when the prospect is ready to proceed Here is an example 12 month communications or Prospect Conversion Calendar largely based on email broadcasting which is now both highly effective it gets great results and a fraction of the cost of any other medium direct mail telephone field visits events Simple 12 Month Prospect Conversion Communications Calendar Month 1 Email Newsletter like this one Month 1 Offer Email Month 2 Email Newsletter Month 2 Event Invitation by Email Month 3 Temperature Check Phone Call by sales administrator not sales person Month 3 Email Newsletter Month 4 Sales Letter be Email Month 5 Email Newsletter Month 5 Offer Email Month 6 Email Newsletter Month 6 Temperature Check Phone Call Month 7 Email Newsletter Month 8 Event Invitation Month 9 Email Newsletter Month 9 Sales Letter by Direct Mail or Email Month 10 Temperature Check Phone Call Month 11 Email Newsletter
