Adwords – Why Sign Up?

Did you know that your competitors could be bidding on your company name to appear ahead of you in search results? Search Engine Marketing (SEM) allows you to reach existing and new customers by appearing right at the top of relevant search queries. And if you’re not doing it, your competitors will be.


Asana is a large online management tool and yet they’re not following basic business practices. Neglecting your own advertisement means your competitors can hijack your brand name and steal customers intended for your website. In this image you can see that two competitors land higher than Asana does in Google’s results. While us digital marketers will immediately recognise those little green ‘Ad’ icons, the majority of users will click on the top result. In fact, Bitrix goes so far as to include the boast that their platform is better than Asana. Cheeky? Perhaps, but it’s happening.

Google your company name now and see if you’re the top result. Note that clever AdWords campaigners will omit the exact location of a competitor’s office from their ads so you don’t even know they’re stealing your traffic. We recommend googling your company at the office and also at your home address to better work out if your competitor is running a campaign directed at your brand’s keywords.

Digital Freak can make sure your company appears in branded searches as well as relevant keyword searches. We monitor account activity every day, tailoring our cost per click to suit your budget. Impressions, clicks and conversions are tracked, so you know exactly how much value our campaign is offering your company. But what does this all mean? Let’s explain a little further.

SEO campaign

Above is a snapshot from a live campaign which Digital Freak has been working on for two months. It’s a small budget campaign but we have dedicated our time to creating the best ads and setting the right bids to maximise our client’s money. Here you can see that all of our keywords (15) average a Quality Score (QS) of 9.6. That’s amazing! As a result of this high score, our client saves 22.6% on every single click. So if one click cost a competitor $1.00, that would only cost our client $0.77! In ten clicks, we’ve already saved them $2.30; money that can be directed to efforts reaching even more people.

This campaign has also seen an amazing Click Through Rate (CTR). 13.18% of people who are shown these ads click on them – proving both ad and keyword relevance. And the Quality Score tells us they like what they see. In fact, some of our keywords have generated a CTR of 29.41% – that’s crazy high! All of this proves that Digital Freak can get your ads delivered right to the top of relevant search queries and kick-start a profitable Search Engine Marketing campaign.

  1. In my humble opinion, adwords is a tricky thing to get right, especially as A STARTUP OR ON A SMALL BUDGET. i FEEL THAT ORGANIC SEO MAY TAKE LONGER TO GET RESULTS BUT COSTS LESS

    1. Hi John,
      AdWords is definitely a financial commitment but for some industries, this can be a great way to kickstart a startup. Depending on the way the campaign is structured, it can be successful on a small budget. However, even if our clients are engaged in AdWords, we would recommend they also work on their ongoing SEO as well. Please let us know if we can help more.

  2. The updated AdWords signup process does not leave a skip button. You need to create a campaign and setup billing to start using AdWords.The best way is to setup a dummy campaign with dummy data during the process and pause it once you have completed the signup process.

    1. Hi John,
