    [0:10] Music.
    [0:22] Hey thanks for joining me today on the paid and sites podcast so.

    We’re going to some a little different today we’re going to talk about AdWords conversion tracking and this is a crucial piece that.
    [0:36] I see time and time again that companies just don’t have set up or haven’t even thought about it so they’re spending money on and it could be AdWords it could be Facebook ads Pinterest you name it but.

    So they know they know traffic is coming to their website.

    And that’s about all they can see they don’t know if people are taking action after they get to the website so if you were buying or filling out a form or any you know what whatever their goal is have no idea if that’s happening so,

    they could be they could be getting great results.

    From from the red spend or they could be getting 0 results but what without tracking it you just don’t know so that’s we’re going to go through today,

    and there’s there’s a few different types of,

    conversion tracking and I have a case study I did with a company called call rail they did,

    did you conversion call tracking sorry and,

    just playing planning that I saw a huge increase in return on investment Roi so I’ll link that up in the show notes for this episode you can check that out but we’re going to go through lead form tracking,

    call tracking and then touch on,

    tracking sales in offline tracking as well so there’s lots of different different aspects to this,

    I would say the most basic type of conversion tracking is lead form tracking so.
    [2:07] Put that means is someone you know someone.

    Comes your website and fills out a lead form and after that happens you want to direct them to a thank you page or a page that confirms they fill out the form and then,

    the only way to get to that page is by filling out the form so you put a,

    conversion tracking code or you know you set up we’ll talk about this you set up Google analytics so that it triggers a goal conversion when they hit that page.

    Hopefully that makes sense types of tracking are like I mentioned phone calls and you can set those up for different durations so.

    If someone calls you for 30 seconds or 60 seconds or two minutes that can be a conversion,

    obviously those aren’t aren’t perfect but by setting you know something more than just a couple seconds at least at least you know you have a decent,

    decent phone call

    so let’s let’s talk about the Forum conversion tracking,

    there’s two there’s basically two ways to accomplish this that I’m going to talk about there is an AdWords conversion tracking code that you get through the AdWords platform and then there’s also,

    like I mentioned a Google analytics goal that can be imported into AdWords and I used to...

    For episode 12, I searched for stock trading apps. What I was originally thinking when searching was a something like the [Robinhood App](https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/robinhood-stock-trading/id938003185?mt=8&at=1000ltXT) (iTunes store) but that’s not what showed up so we have to go with the advertisers that did.

    [0:22] Hey guys and welcome back to the podcast I have a quick announcement.

    A couple spots have opened up for ongoing AdWords management I just do a couple clients at a time so I can give them kind of awesome service and value and then focus on the other stuff that I’m doing as well so,

    if you are interested in getting an awesome Roy on.

    On your PPC spend just head on over to paid insights click the hire me button and they’ll be a short form,

    that you’ll fill out give a couple details on budget and kind of your website and everything and then we can count to get the conversation started from there so I hope to hear from you if that is something you are interested in and now we can get,

    on the episode

    I ride for this episode we are looking at the keyword stock trading apps,

    so I got that into Google and the top three ads I got were from well-known companies I’ll see we’ll start with the top one is Scottrade then TD Ameritrade an E-Trade.

    Which is to be expected but what,

    didn’t happen was nothing talks about at least the first Lance hear nothing talks about apps or does there’s an option in AdWords where you can you can add a download.
    [1:53] Download your app kind of like add-on or extension and I don’t see that on any of these.

    Either nothing mentions that so.

    I would say that none of these actually are relevant to the exact search I did so.

    The first one Scottrade says Scottrade official site online stocks up to 2500 when you open and fund a qualifying account see offer detail so that’s kind of cool they give you to give you free money when you.

    Put a bunch of your money in there and then there’s says ranks highest in self-directed investor satisfaction from JD Power is a review extension.
    [2:36] There is some ratings website service selection investment help and fees all say 9 out of 10.

    There’s a local office as well in a phone number so it’s it’s kind of nice to see you can you can go in and talk to someone in person one of their agents,

    and then there’s some sitelinks as well as his fees and commissions wi’chu Scottrade stock quotes and research.

    And options trading till it’s nice

    no option I guess that let people know that options trading is available.

    So next we have TD Ameritrade this official TD ameritrade.com so there maybe they’re trying to.
    [3:20] Differentiate themselves from a fake version of the site and it’s possible that that they...

    [1:44] For the call out extensions and then they also have a review from the Independent and it says one of the best and outdoor furniture so that’s awesome to see a nice social proof there.

    And then they have some tight links as well so it’s good to see they’re using all these different extensions it says to the type of garden furniture some links to garden furniture find the showroom and request a catalog cell.

    I think that’s a great kind of combination of keeping him specific and then also heading in the request a catalog in find Astro rumor.

    Things that you might want to do you know if they want to visit you in person

    so.
    [2:29] Another thing that stands out is the free delivery and returns that really lowers your resistance I mean if you.

    Or something and it just shows up broken or there’s issues they will pay for an End patio furniture garden furniture is expensive to ship so.

Great AdWords Advice!

Ross is extremely knowledgeable about the SEM space and provides great insights in each episode. Although I have a few years experience working with AdWords campaigns, I'm finding things that either I needed reminding of or hadn't considered in the past, so it's definitely worth a listen!

Mike Kilcoyne ,

This is AWESOME

I've known Ross for a while now, and he knows more about the world of PPC and Adwords than anybody I've ever had the fortune to connect with. This is basically just the best-of-the-best from Ross's perspective. Highly recommend listening to this show, because you'll learn a ton!
