TOPIC: Website + Google Adwords = Gold

Website + Google Adwords = Gold 2 years 11 months ago #13337

So I made a website, spent a lot of time doing every SEO suggestion that I could do so it can be found easily via google ect which is fine but I realise google takes about 3 months to really search a site and rank it accordingly... The were giving away $75 free Adwords credit... I thought adwords was pointless as I don't usually click on ads and thought it was super expensive and not worth it but I had nothing to lose and $75 of it for free... why not... well that $75 got me almost $1000 worth of work and about $3000 in total of enquiries, I've since had lots more enquiries and bookings and my magic is taking off really nicely... I'll keep using adwords until my site ranks to be on the first page in most searches. In the meantime check out my website :) www.kiwimagician.com

Oh and Liderc... I already know you don't do the fangled stuff like this... :)

Wow, that is awesome Mike! Just make sure to track which of your clients are coming via your AdWords ads, and which are coming via organic search/SEO... (if you aren't doing that already) ... that way you can see exactly how much money you are making for each click you get on adwords, and you can compare that to your adwords cost per click, and use that to determine if it is worth it.

Also, experiment with different ads and keywords if you can... see which ones give you the most bookings per click.

I definitely agree that AdWords can be very good, but it really pays to spend some time with it and do some experimenting in order to optimize your ads and therefore optimize the revenue per click vs. cost per click ratio.

Hey V, Totally, and yea at least 90% of my website traffic is via my adwords at the moment and averages at an okay price per booking, I did experiment with keywords, pretty much added a LOT and wasted about $30-$40 by havinga lot of clicks that weren't looking for entertainment and have got it down to pretty specific searches now. All of this is making my website popular which will help with its ranking when I stop using Adwords.

Hey Mal, maybe you should experiment with the keywords you are using a bit... maybe the traffic you are getting is not targeted enough.

I agree, spend time on the keywords and to be honest, your website isn't very "client friendly" it doesn't look inviting and it's hard to navigate... let's just say, I wouldn't hire you after seeing it... start a forum post about it and we can help you redo it, I already have a whole new design in progress for mine. Also make sure you have a high price per click otherwise nobody will see your ad... I pay up to $1 per click so am at the top with most of the searches. Also make sure it is targeted to the right area ect. I get about 12 clicks a day on average with a $10 a day spending limit...

just a suggestion mal.
Your first keywords should not be malachi and such. People are more likely to search for words like magician in texas or magician for hire.

Yea totally, even your domain should include keywords... (an be .com) but the feeling I get from your site is that you are targeting magicians not clients...
