Day 23 Introduction Video – 30DC

2008TDC23_Intro_Day23

Ummm…okay – I know this video mentions more ways to manage our PPC accounts – but I think we pretty much covered it over the past three lessons.  I mean, there’s more we can do with Google Adwords, but it’s beyond the scope of the thirty day challenge.  The next video is about WordPressDirect and the podcast is more of an overview of the methodology of the Thirty Day Challenge.

Google Adwords

Time to watch today’s videos: Approximately 18 minutes.

Additional time to complete today’s action steps: If you’re just getting started with Adwords, this may take anywhere from 15 to 60 minutes – the steps for signing up are pretty simple. Once you’re ready to create your first ad – well, you may find that the creative side can be fun – and also time-consuming.

For me, I like to spend a little bit of time tweaking the wording of my ad – playing with different headlines and benefit oriented descriptions. Ultimately, you have to make a decision and run with it. In most cases, I find that my first instincts are my best – with a tweak here and there to smooth out the copy.

The beauty part of this process is – you’re testing – and you can always go back and change things. So – take action and get your first Adwords ad up and running today!

Getting Started With Google Adwords

2008TDC20_Google_Adwords

Pay per click can be a very powerful way to drive traffic – it can also get costly if not done properly. So while it is presented and taught in this year’s thirty day challenge – it is optional. If you are leery about taking this route, you can continue adding content, and building links.

If you’re ready to get started with Google Adwords – go ahead and:

1. Sign up for your Google Adwords account
2. Create your first AdWords ad – focused on your main keyword
