Stop Wasting Money on Poorly Targeted PPC Campaigns

The Problem – Poorly Targeted PPC

Common problems with mismanaged PPC campaigns include:

  • Relying on broad match keywords like “attorney” or “legal services” that attract unqualified traffic
  • Not segmenting audiences into focused ad groups based on service, location, demographics, etc
  • Using generic ad copy that fails to resonate with your niche
  • Not optimizing landing pages with clear calls-to-action
  • Having no conversion tracking to calculate ROI
  • Using manual bidding without optimizing based on performance
  • Running ads without regularly optimizing based on insights

This untargeted approach scatters your ad budget amongst low quality clicks from the wrong audiences. It drives up costs without driving retained clients. Meanwhile, savvy competitors siphon away prospects through better targeting.

Well-managed PPC campaigns laser focus budget on high-converting keywords and demographics. Ongoing optimization improves performance over time. Doing this in-house requires extensive expertise – outsourcing to specialists ensures maximum ROI.
