I'm looking to spend $100-$200 per day on Adwords and I'm wondering if I should hire a VA to manage my PPC campaign or a PPC software?

    Sure. Why couldn't you hire someone to do your AdWords campaign? If they don't know what they're doing though, you may be wasting $100-200 PLUS what they charge. For this sort of thing especially I'd look for something that knows what they're doing and has testimonials (ones posted by others - not just "apparently said" by "clients").

    Manually is always better than any software. Because its look like more natural.

      Because the PPC campaign looks more natural, uhu

      Besides that, the advice in this thread is just sick, get a VA at Odesk to manage your PPC campaign, yeah right. Why don't you throw your money away right now? Or give it to charity, what a sick thread this is!

        Go with a VA, you will he happier. You do have to train,
        but once you do, they do all the grunt work.

        For our company it works fine. It frees us up for other
        knids of markering we are doing at the same time.

    I'd go with a VA rather than software. Just make sure your VA has experience in this thing.

    find someone that's been individually qualified for adwords to take on your adwords campaigns. there are people out there that only do this as their job. they also get vouchers for adwords to give out to new clients as one of their promotional offers.

      Depends if your software can select relevant keywords, put them into tightly knitted groups, write relevant ads for each ad group and then monitor the campaign analytics. With the software, to an extent you are still going to be heavily involved in the campaign. So if you don't want that to be the case, consider hiring a VA..

    I don't have enough posts to send out any PM's.. but my skype is the same as my name on here.

    I'm not sure if there's a catch or you're just trying to gain good karma. but it'd be appreciated.

    Your work seems to me different, so i suggest you to hire an experienced VA from odesk or freelancer rather than using a software.

    You can find some experienced workers on ODesk. You can read about their work history with other clients which is very helpful.

    Try a professional, as you have a steep learning curve

    For that price you can hire a reputable company so I would definitely go with a VA. But don't just get any VA who says they know adwords. I would look for plenty of referrals and also follow up and contact the referrals. You'd be surprised how many times I've hired VA's who said they know a skill set and know nothing about it and give false referrals.

    if your budget is $100 - $200 a day I would personally do it my self, dont look at the profit that $100 - $200 makes you but look at the fact that a va or software will lose you.

    I vote for VA also...

    You could look for VAs at LinkedIn. You could find easily the most experience & reputable VA there.
