Frequently Asked Questions

Google AdWords, which was recently rebranded to Google Ads, is a method for advertisers to reach people when they are actively searching for a product or service.

The simplest form of Google Ads appear at the top of search results.  For example, if you were to search for “Google AdWords Management Melbourne”, you would likely see ads in the top 4 positions with a small ‘Ad’ logo next to the listing.  These advertisers have written those ads to appear for searchers when this specific phrase was entered. Even though this ad may be visible to hundreds of thousands of people, the advertiser only pays when the searcher clicks on the Ad – which is why this form of advertising is commonly known as ‘Pay Per Click’ or PPC Advertising.

The order or ‘rank’ in which these ads appear is determined by several factors, which are being calculated during every single search – which is called the ‘ad auction’.  These can be narrowed down to:

A)   The price you are willing to pay per click; and

B)   How relevant your ad and website are to the searched keyword.

Other factors such as page load speed, and how often your ad has been clicked on previously, also affect this calculation.

There are many variations of how these ads appear – some may be several lines long, include phone numbers, a street address, prices and specials, and even images of the specific products. These variations are just some of the Ad Extensions and Ad Types that advertisers can use to grab the attention of searchers. Leave them to us. We know what will make your business stand out.

There are two separate costs associated with an external partner or agency managing your Google AdWords account; media costs and management costs.

Media Costs

Much like traditional advertising, you need to pay the network for the real estate on their platform. As the advertiser, you can control the amount you wish to spend on Google. There are tools which allow an advertiser to calculate the average Cost Per Click (CPC) for the keywords they wish to target, and how much search volume exists for these keywords in the targeted locations in a given month.

From this information an advertiser can then determine how much media spend would be required to reach all or part of their target audience.  For example, if the keyword phrase “Google AdWords Management Melbourne” costs an average of $10.00 per click, and there are 100 searches per month in Melbourne, then the advertiser could spend up to $1,000 per month to reach these searchers. These figures provided are averages that would then require additional testing and revision to ensure the desired reach is achieved.

Management Costs

The management costs associated with having a Google AdWords agency or partner managing your Google AdWords campaign can vary greatly.  The size of the agency – whether a one-man-band or international agency – can alter the overheads and costs associated with management but may not be reflective of the quality and communications required for effective account management.

The true success of a Google AdWords account is the return on investment generated from it. Given that media spend is tied to tangible clicks and conversions, the ROI generated by your campaign is often easily calculated.

There are several ways that Melbourne digital agencies charge account management fees for Google AdWords management, the most common being:

A)   Tiered Structure

B)   Proportion of Media Spend

At Bonfire our goal is to generate return on investment for our clients. Not simply increasing arbitrary clicks and website traffic. Therefore, Bonfire operate on a tiered structure, which allows for a variety of solutions and options, that don’t involve locking your business to excessive media spend.

Ultimately, Google have provided a product that allows business operators to run their own Google AdWords accounts. While it may not be easy or expedient to run your own advertising account, it is possible. This means that many companies and individuals who offer Google AdWords management are not the most qualified to manage your marketing investment.

An analogy of this would be if Accountants did not require mandatory accreditation to operate but could obtain qualifications optionally.  Would you trust an accountant who didn’t have the qualifications with your money?

Google Premier Partners must uphold certifications and qualifications that are refreshed annually. Google constantly vets and supports our accounts, ensuring that best-practices are being maintained across our client’s accounts.

In addition to this, as Bonfire are a Google Premier Partner, we gain access to Australian support from Google, along with frequent training and early-access to beta features, which gives our clients an advantage over their competitors.

There are several steps that Google takes to prevent fraudulent ad clicks. This includes altering search results for users based on their previous history and behaviour.  Unfortunately, there are simple ways around this, and a malicious agent can easily circumvent these barriers to cost advertisers considerable amounts in fraudulent clicks.

In addition to Google’s default monitoring tools, Bonfire employs a third-party software, which enable us to personalise the protection for each of our client’s accounts. With this software we can effectively prevent users from seeing your ads depending on their behaviour and location. We have proven savings of hundreds of thousands in wasted clicks each year through employing this third-party software.
