We partner with you to build it in your account, so you'll have a lasting value from working with us.

Google Ads Keyword Research that Sparks Growth

Selecting the right keywords for your Google Ads account is a critical first step to getting the most return on ad spend. We have to identify terms with search volume and transactional intent that match your product/service offering and locations around Charleston. Search volume is important, but probably even more important is whether the target terms are likely to create an opportunity for your business. With limited budget, you start at the bottom of the funnel with transactional key phrases, and you have to know that your visitors are located in or near Charleston, Mt Pleasant, Goose Creek, Summerville, McClellanville, and surrounding areas.

Charleston SC Google Ads Performance Overview

Intent-Matching Across Campaigns, Ad Groups, Ads, Keywords, and Landing Pages

The closer you can match the intent of your ads and landing pages to the intent of the user, the better your conversion rates are going to be. That seems reasonable, but without the proper account structure, settings, and keyword groupings, you can inadvertently blur the lines. Each product or service is broken down into specific categories, with keywords directly related to that service, with ad copy and landing pages matching those categories and locations.

When a user does a search, they should get an ad for exactly what they need where they need it, and get to a landing page that helps them accomplish their search goals without having to search any further. If a user performs a search in Charleston and lands on a page that directly meets their need, you have a better chance at a revenue opportunity.

We'll also work with you to prioritize what you want - meaning, you'll get more leads/sales for the things you want. We plan the strategy, categorize the search terms into related groups, then create ads and match those to the appropriate landing pages to drive people to your website with matching needs and an intent to act on them.

Machine Learning Trend Analysis and Manual Refinements

We use machine learning and trend analysis to identify actionable improvements based on data. This includes time of day, locations, search terms, ads, etc to give us a picture of what is working and what isn't. These refinements are added to your account to help us better utilize as spend where its most likely to produce a return.

We also do a manual review of search terms to identify phrases to exclude (negative keywords) as well as new keyword targets. This honing and refinement process helps us ensure we are only getting clicks where we want to, and excluding those clicks we don't want.
