TIPS FOR WRITING GREAT ADS
TIPS FOR CHOOSING THE RIGHT KEYWORDS
Keywords are the words people use when they search the Internet. Having an effective keyword list helps your ad appear when potential customers are interested in your products or services.
Tip #1. Don’t be too general or too specific. Two- or three-word phrases make the best keywords. For example, use ‘low-cost car batteries’ instead of ‘batteries.’
Tip #2. Research relevant keywords. Review your marketing materials and industry sites for what keywords to use. Think about how your customers describe your products or services. Are items known by another term? Avoid industry terms that your customers don’t know. Try the Keyword Tool in the Reporting and Tools tab to brainstorm keywords.
Tip #3. Target the right customers. Make your keywords more relevant by adding negative keywords. Negative keywords can help screen out unqualified leads and reduce costs. For example, if you sell new books, use negative keywords like ‘used’ and ‘second hand’ so your ad doesn’t appear when someone searches for ‘used books’ or ‘second hand books’.
