Adwords Experts – Find One Or Become One

 

For anyone who has a website on the internet where they need to get more traffic to that site Google Awords can be a great option. But, since it is not without risks, it is important that you either find Adwords subject matter experts or become an expert yourself. Adwords can be complicated especially If you spend a great deal of time online in the advertising space you probably have heard of people who did something that Google didn’t like which got their account permanently banned. Also, if you don’t know what you are doing you will spend a lot of money and have little, if anything, to show for it. All the more reason to rely only on certified Adwords experts or someone relatively close to being one!

And yes, Google does offer a certification course so you should always check the credentials of anyone you hire before you pay them.

If you are on a limited budget you may just be better off taking some time and becoming an expert yourself. Anyone can take the accreditation course. It will take more time, but if you have more time than money this is a viable alternative to actually hiring someone to do it for you. Another thing you must keep in mind before you actually hire anyone is what they will charge. The amount you will have to pay for their expertise can vary greatly.

Where they live and the amount of experience they have are two of the most common criteria that will determine how expensive their services will be. If you find someone who lives in India, for example, they will usually charge a much lower hourly rate than someone who lives in the U.S. You need to take a long look at just how much you can afford to pay not only in terms of cash going out but also in regards to return on investment. So, if you are selling a product that provides you with a commission of $20, you want to make sure that you can get enough sales to make it worth your while to pay someone to get traffic to your site. If you find that each customer to your site costs you $50 in terms of how much you spend for each click combined with how much you spent on your expert, you are upside down to the tune of $30 a sale.

You also have to know what your conversion rate is; how many of the people who visit your site will actually do what you want them to do. In this case that would be to make a purchase of the product that you are marketing on your website, this could be a product, an affiliate offer, or a membership. Before you decide to hire someone to help with your Adwords efforts you should make sure that your website is converting and that you know how much you can afford to pay for each visitor.

From that point, you can figure out what you can reasonably afford to pay someone to do your Adwords campaigns for you.

If you decide that it does make sense to hire an Adwords expert you will have no shortage of choices of people to hire. Just check out their credentials and, if possible, get word of mouth recommendations first!

To your success!
