Be specific with your google ads to stand out from the competition. The best way is to structure adgroups by theme and write ads that offer a solution to your customers’ needs.

3. Having an agency open a new account with their email address.

A common mistake that both agencies and their customers make is opening a new Google AdWords account with an agency email address. If the company and the agency part ways, the client risks losing access and the entire history of the account. Not all agencies like this but I do I see customers with that problem every now and then. Either use the company’s existing account or open a new account and then connect the agency to it.

4. Underestimating the power of peer pressure.

 

Split testing, or A/B testing as it is sometimes referred to, is quite common among advertisers but few utilize the principles of behavioral economics. While tracking customer behavior has been around for a while, sociology professor Jeni Cross from Colorado State University has brought a new level of awareness and a better understanding of common sense to the general public with her TED Talk on behavior change.

One of her case studies describes that hotel visitors would rather reuse their towel if they thought other people who have stayed in the same room reused their towels versus obeying a sign that politely asks them to reuse it to protect the environment. While caring for the environment seems to be a noble cause, peer pressure wins every time. Utilize that for your google ads and landing pages with little changes such as “Join” vs. “Sign Up”, or “63 percent of website visitors who scrolled down to this point also downloaded XYZ”.

5. Failure to align brand, landing page and social media.

5 COMMON STRATEGIC MISTAKES TO AVOID WHEN USING GOOGLE ADWORDS

Too many businesses are underestimating their campaign by not making the effort to create a reliable brand experience throughout their landing pages, websites and social media pages. Font and colors should be exactly the same across the board. Wording and imagery can sometimes be different if fits the same style. Consistency makes your brand familiar, and more trustworthy, which increases the likelihood of converting.
