Does adwords really work?

"I've tried Google Adwords and got some hits, a big bill, but no conversions, hence no cash spent. Has anyone had any success with Adwords and if so, whats the secret?"

Yes. Adwords does work, but make sure that you limit the amount of Google Adwords you spend per day. I have it set at $2.50 max per day. I get about five clicks for that. It helps with google rank I believe.

Google adwords is expensive. $.50 per click. Almost no traffic or biz from adwords. It is a Google money maker, but not so much a small biz money maker.

If you want real traffic Facebook PPC is much better and cheaper than Google Adwords.

Do you have personal experience with this? We are looking to explore adwords or Facebook marketing. Just starting out really.

Like other PPC services it will only be effective if you know how to use it. Try setting up a page specifically for your campaign agenda such as a news letter subscription page or product on sale page and use the PPC to promote that page and offer. You may see better results this way. If your page/site does not convert already then PPC will be a wast of money because you need an effective landing page to get the best out of PPC.

Adwords works well if your ads are well done using Google keyword tool. I received two interested in my services leads in a week of using Adwords, plus my traffic increased. Now, I am monitoring to see if more leads will come along for the month. If not, I just have to stop paying and will be done with them. I think once you get the discount Google offers it is worth because you will have access to Google keyword tool and being able to diagnose every keyword you are testing. In the end, If I do not see any leads I may use the service with a minimum balance in order to get the all available tools Google offer. It is definably worth trying at least for a month!

We have tried Google AdWords and Microsoft Ads, and found that they are really a total waste of marketing funds. We find that window shoppers only click on paid adverts, and customers click on optimised organic links.

This is from experience, and not from guesswork.

Therefore, avoid paying for your links. There are many alternative methods to getting your message out.

Best regards,

THE ! GROOVY ! GROUP ! ®

I have to agree with the above reply. Optimize all your individual site pages properly, get a great serp ( search engine results page) position ( free) and you will not have to worry about spending money for adwords.

I do agree. There are still (free) ways to try befor jumping on to (paid) methods if you have no idea what you're doing. You end up losing more money than what you intended.

if you use adwords, be sure to use it on one central item to sell, not an entire store. that way you can focus on all keywords for just one item instead of multiple keywords draining your funds.

Adwords are very hit and miss and it depends on what you are selling too. I have used it on several sites but with a free voucher and when I analyised the results it certainly made no economic sense to pay for them.

Adwords is all based on the quality of keywords. The more specific you are in the keywords the more likely you are to see some sales. I think adwords is really good at bringing in traffic but not so great at bringing in sales. When I did use adwords I found that I had a ton of clicks but no sales. For some it may work, but for me it just helped bringing in traffic.

Quoted from: member_58404 on 2009-09-29 12:07:08

In last few years making money with Adwords became a real since. In my opinion, nobody should decide to use Adwords before educating yourself about it. It is a lot to learn and the secret seems to lie in choosing a niche with a small competition which a lot of people look for. Normally, cost per click in Adword program is much too high for this game to be lucrative for an average people with no deeper knowledge and ready funnel system.

I agree totally

I read lot of people on this post, But I found most accurate answer by Aleksandar. You should start SEO process before invest in Google Ad words. You should have good site with appropriate products/services with good content. when some organic traffic come to your site, after that you should choose your keywords and audience wisely.

Then Google Ad words will help you get your ROI.

If you do not know what you are doing, then you have no business in AdWords. Google AdWords is an advertising bidding war. Therefore, if you do not know how it all comes together, you are only going to end up with a big bill and nothing to show for it.

I have been using AdWords for about four years now. My first experience was a credit card bill for $1500 and not a single conversion. I shut down my ad campaign, started reading anything and everything I could regarding how to use Google AdWords, and now I usually have a CTR of 10% or better, with a conversion rate of about 2%.

The conversion rate may seem low, but we provide a service that is in the thousands of dollars. A 2% conversion rate means a hefty profit for our company.

I have done other ad campaigns, and my conversion rate has been above 20% in some cases, but it is usually when dealing with a product that is less than $20.

My advice is to educate yourself really well. You need to become an expert at your craft, and then you will be successful. By the way, this is good advice for any endeavor you undertake on the Internet.

Adwords is good if you want highly targeted traffic in a hurry. However your site should be able to convert a percentage of the traffic to make it cost effective. I have several potential sources of income on my site. I occasionally use it. However I have experienced results without it. The price per click can be high depending on the keyword. I consider other advertising/promotion methods as better alternatives.

I agree with some members of this forum post, that google adwords requires special attention and before well educated practical steps to get success with it. But if you haven't much time to educate yourself, I will recommend you to do a lot of organic SEO activites: forums, social media, article marketing and others.
