I Need A Star Adwords Campaign Manager. Any Advice?

Hey guys,

So my business is growing so quickly now that I should get someone to manage the adwords campaigns that I have going now.

I have seen a professional before and he said that I had it operating at 80% capacity and that it would just take time to get all of the keywords tweaked to the point where the campaign would be running optimally.

So I am looking for a pro to manage my campaigns. To bring my CPC down and drive more traffic.

But I'm not really sure what to ask as far as criteria when interviewing these guys. I don't know what makes a good Adwords manager and what makes a ****ty one?

Any advice would be appreciated!

    Sean,

    A lot of Adwords managers will have other clients.

    It's best to ask simply for references. Who have they worked with in the past? Who are they working with currently?

    Knowing their past is key to securing your future.

    I think Adrienne Devita offers a service like this. I have watched a few webinars that she has done and she definitely knows her stuff. Just type her name into google.

    This might be worth a shot...but go look up Perry Marshall and contact his office to see if they have any recommendation. Perry would be probably unavailable but I'm sure he has a few apprentices who are excellent since he's an adwords guru

    Cheers,

    Brad

    Thanks, bro.

    Check out the site JoeCool mentioned though.

    ...I just read a few pages into it but it's put together really well and has some pretty big backers. I did hop over to the SEO area, to check their prices, and they are pretty high for what you're getting. (Worth the money for corporate clients but charging high margins.)

    Make sure you have a good dollar value in your head that you want to spend before just jumping into anything.

    Good luck!

      Geez, I really need to start charging more for my SEO services. And people complain about our prices LOL. This is why my goal in the New Year is to leave the cheap-ass webmaster market and focus on small businesses with real budgets.

        Glad to hear that, Ron!

        I would bet quite a bit that your services would out preform there's by a mile too.

          Sean,

          Here's another DIY avenue for obtaining targeted, paid traffic without the concerns of being b*tch slapped like a red headed step-child by Google.

          TrafficRevolution.com from Jonathan Mizel.

          Google, Yahoo & Bing are not the only games in town. There's a whole big wide world out there in other paid media channels.


          Best Regards.

          P.S. And Dude, fire up an affiliate program and/or get your product on Clickbank & PayDotCom. You'll get all the traffic you can possibly handle!

    If you're really concerned, you could look for an "AdWords Certified Professional." Google actually offers a training/certification program. If you find someone who has taken it, they won't necessarily be an AdWords genius, but they should have a base-level of competence.

    Besides...

    AdWords isn't that difficult. You've got the ads, the keywords, and the landing page. Just make sure to continually test all three of those variables and do your break-even math. There really aren't that many "moving parts" involved. In addition, I find the new AdWords interface much more pleasant to use. The old one was kind of clunky.

    The MOST important thing of all is to set a daily spending limit you can afford and monitor your campaigns closely (especially in the beginning). Every once in a while you hear about a beginner spending something like $2K and getting zero clicks... yikes. You must test.

    Regards,
    Johnny
