Select New Keywords and Remove Ones That Aren’t Converting

One of the main reasons a PPC ad may be performing poorly is because the search terms selected for the campaign aren’t resulting in clicks and conversions. Ensure you have a range of quality keywords with a range of low-high competition will improve the overall performance of your PPC Ads.

You should be undertaking detailed keyword research with the most relevant search terms for what you are trying to advertise. As well as this, regularly monitor your campaign’s keywords and carry out conversion rate optimisation to update your keyword selection.

This is done by reviewing your campaign results and looking for keywords that are spending but not receiving clicks or conversions. Make use of “Phrase Match”, “Broad Match” and “Exact Match” options for your keywords to filter out versions of a keyword that doesn’t result in clicks.


Write Compelling Ad Copy

Use compelling ad copy that your audience will find interesting and want to engage with. This is essential for a good-performing PPC ad. Ensure the ad copy you are using has enticing sales points to draw in the user, yet is relevant to your service or business. As with keywords, you can see in Google Ads which ad assets have resulted in clicks. If you notice one that is not resulting in clicks and conversions, then weed it out.

Optimise Your Ad’s Landing Page

Is your website fully optimised? Many PPC campaigns fail or perform poorly due to the landing page you are directing users through to from the ad. If a page is hard to navigate, doesn’t have a clear-cut customer journey, or other user experience issues; you are far less likely to see a conversion.

To combat this, ensure the landing page you’re sending your users to is fully optimised and follows best practices for website design and functionality. If you notice a large amount of clicks, but few conversions as a result, this can be a sign your landing page is not going down well with your audience.

It’s why we always recommend website conversion rate optimisation services to clients wanting to improve their pay-per-click marketing strategy. Many times, poor design or confusing wording has made a strong advert fall flat.


Include Ad Extensions

Ad extensions can drastically increase the performance of a poorly performing pay-per-click marketing strategy. These allow you to provide more information (contact information, service pages, etc) within your campaign and highlight key services to draw in users. This can provide a more clear-cut direction of your service, ensuring that clicks are more likely to be relevant.
