  • 5 Ways to Kill your Competition Using Google AdWords

     

    Last week Finch hosted a webinar on how to kill your competition using Google AdWords and we just published the recording. Head on over and check it out.

  • Buying Profit by the Click - A New eCommerce eBook

     Bjorn just hit publish on a brand new eBook outlining the AdWords strategies eCommerce companies must employ to grow revenue and profit with PPC.

    If this eBook were written as a tweet (you know, 140 characters or less), it would read: 

    Buy profit not acquisitions. AdWords must be a sales channel, not an ad expense. See how one company increased revenue by 310% and profit by 169%!

    While a tweet sounds intriguing, this eBook goes into detail about each of the steps necessary to accomplish this. This strategy addresses the unique requirements eCommerce companies have for PPC. Specifically, managing the complexity of offering multiple products, each with different prices and profit margins, and setting the right cost targets.

  • Cracking Google's Black Box: Quality Score

    Google’s Quality Score is like the elusive Himalayan Ghost Cat, an animal very difficult to see, let alone capture. However, it's a very valuable measure of your AdWords health. If it's on, you'll reap the benefits of position and CTR. If it's off, so is your campaign...somewhere.

    To help look at this piece a little closer, Bjorn and Finch have teamed up with another industry leader, AdAlysis' Brad Geddes, to give a holistic view of Quality Score form both their unique perspectives. The webinar willbe live this coming Tuesday, January 17th at 9:00 am PST/12:00 pm EST. We'll host Q&A afterward so come with questions!

    The webinar has been shown but the recording is HERE.

    Read on for a blog that Brad has shared with us focused on projecting Quality Scores...

  • Mastering Attribution Modeling Webinar

    Your website was built to do one job: convert visitors to paying customers. Google's changes in attribution modeling allows digital marketers to determine the value of paths that lead to a conversion. By utilizing attribution correctly, you can get a much closer look at the kinds of marketing that your customers respond to, what this means to your marketing and how to best use each model based on your goals.

    As Bjorn said during the webinar, "...over the past year there have been more changes to attribution modeling and options than in the previous 10 years. This creates a lot of opportunities and also a lot of confusion..." We held this webinar to help increase education, diffuse confusion and get a good discussion going.

  • Taking on the Paid Search Industry with a Fresh Pair of Eyes


    Let Finch be a disruptive innovation for your PPC bid managementHave you ever been doing a puzzle and been stuck -- and then someone else who’s never seen the puzzle walks up and puts a critical piece in place? In short, sometimes someone who has been looking at a problem too long can’t see the answer right in front of him.

    I’ve had a similar job role throughout my career but have changed industries several times. Sometimes it takes an industry outsider to look at a problem and ask, “Why are we doing it that way?”

    Just like trying to solve a puzzle the same way every time, I think industries get stuck in a rut thinking, “That’s how things are always done,” without taking a step back and asking, “Why are things done this way?” I can’t tell you the countless times that my teams have come up with a new product or service because we’ve challenged how things were traditionally done.

    Eric Maas and Bjorn Espenes are fairly new to paid search; starting Finch in 2009. But Finch is doing really well – in part because Finch is doing things really differently.

  • The 7 Biggest Lies Agencies May be Telling You

    There is a long line of digital advertising agencies who tell you that they will “make your account perform better than anyone else.” Google has over 15,000 partners for AdWords, and each of them has their own approach or story.  

    Ours is a complex industry that is getting more and more difficult to navigate. Unfortunately, most agencies have not been able to meet the complexity with improved technology, instead they compensate by stretching the truth, making empty promises, or worse; blatantly lying to their customers. 

  • The Art of Automating Winning with PPC Bidding Engines When you Have Something to Sell

    Bjorn Espenes was featured again as a guest blogger on Certified Knowledge, a website covering PPC and other online marketing topics. This time he tackled the topic of how Cost per Acquisition is the wrong cost model for eCommerce sites and how tracking the value of each conversion is essential to your success.

  • The Benefit of Single Keyword/PLA Ad Groups

    When we introduced single keyword ad groups in 2009 everyone thought we were nuts. Illustrated best by this quote from a competitor “Finch is splitting campaigns into atoms and it becomes so complex it is impossible to manage.” Why did we do it? We did it for a very simple reason: it enabled us to isolate the variables that impact performance. The purpose of isolating those variables was to build an algorithm and data model combination to dramatically increase the accuracy of setting the bid to gain more leverage and reduce risk.
