A common misconception surrounding Google AdWords is that people think no one ever really clicks those ads that show up on the right hand side of the search page. But whether you personally do or not, someone sure is, as those ads account for 90% of Google’s revenue from advertising as a direct result of people clicking those exact ads.
In order to get in on the action, your business needs to navigate the many choices and options offered by AdWords to best work with your specific business campaign’s goal. Quality is going to go a long way here, so making sure you are on point with your target audience will translate huge. Knowing where your audience is, attracting them with concise and helpful ad copy - think strong and concise keywords - as well as refining your targeting strategy (beware the automatic default settings), will all help you win big in the end.
