How to automate SEM optimization to drive more sales

SEM optimization software

Not all leads are created equal and not all result in the same sales conversion performance.  As a result, any steps taken to improve lead quality will in turn lead to improved conversion rates and ROI. However, the process of improving lead quality can be a very complex and time consuming one.

Lead-to-sales conversion performance depends on many variables such as search ad vendor type, campaign, ad type, ad copy and keywords.  For example, the conversion to sales ratio of a lead generated from a keyword search campaign can be vastly different from that of a lead generated from a display ad campaign or a remarketing campaign.  It is also likely that a lead resulting from a Google search will have a different probability of converting than a lead generated from a Google partner network or Bing network. What this illustrates is just how critical the tracking, analysis and segmentation of sales performance data by ad channel, campaign, ad type, ad copy and keyword is to search marketing campaign optimization.

This is the ongoing dilemma for many marketers and especially perplexing for many small businesses and the agencies that serve them. You need a constant flow of new leads but how do you improve the conversion rate and ROI without breaking the bank or tying up all of your resources?

We believe intelligent automation of the SEM optimization process is the key and that is exactly where SAAS and Cloud business marketers need to look out for vendors that offer SEM solution.  In order for the SEM optimization process to be automated, there are four key challenges or requirements.

First, a centralized backend system to receive and store all leads is required.  All leads need to be passed into one backend system whether they come in the form of phone calls, online forms, email, blog or social sites with lead source information.  While software and tools exist to make this centralization of leads possible, the cost of existing solutions can be high and out of reach for many businesses.

Second, an analysis of all leads to determine source must be accomplished. Each lead must be analyzed for source by ad channel, campaign, ad group and keywords. Once the source of each lead is identified, further analysis is needed to determine the source or sources that produce the greatest number of high quality leads.  While there are a few options in existence that can provide help with this type of analysis, they can be quite expensive depending on the tool and implementation cost.

Third, lead status must be updated routinely so that a current picture of lead status is available. Manual updates of lead status may not be as easy as one might think. It generally requires either a dedicated staff member to update status routinely or a sales staff that is diligent about updating lead status.  In our experience most businesses have had limited success with these manual approaches to lead status updates.

Fourth, lead quality data must be passed onto and utilized in the management of search marketing campaigns. Lead quality should serve as a KPI of search marketing campaigns.  While there can be customized solutions to share lead quality data with search engine marketing optimization tools, until now these have been custom solutions that are costly to implement.

Now that you know what to look for from the process, you can make an intelligent decision in a search for SEM automation tool.  Fortunately, there are more vendors to try to devise solutions.

Google: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

There’s no denying that Google’s rise to power has been impressive. As someone who has been involved in online marketing for the past 10 years and has viewed the industry from different perspectives, I’ve watched them closely. I’ve seen them from the perspective of search advertiser, marketing agency and search ad application developer.  I think it is interesting to look at their performance and how they use their power from these different perspectives.

Google started as a socially responsible company. In their beginning, Google offered organic search results that were unbiased and informative. While organic search has evolved over the years, with many improvements and some drawbacks, it still remains essentially unbiased. As we all know, organic search results are critical to most businesses and with the rise of organic search unethical SEO tactics followed. Google has done a good job at detecting and mitigating these unethical practices.

In the area of paid search ads, Google was a boon to advertisers in the early days offering cost effective advertising with analytics and flexibility to make changes quickly. The not so good, more recently Google’s ad costs have been on the rise and flexibility and customization have decreased while there are more features.

From an agency perspective, Google has provided a significant opportunity for revenue generation as agencies manage Google advertising for their clients. In the beginning Google’s support for agencies was minimal but over the years this has expanded and improved to the point that it is pretty good.

Last but not least is my view of Google as an application tool vendor. In the early days there was a significant opportunity for third party tool vendors as Google’s tool offering was minimal. But, not surprising, as the market for third party tool vendors increased, Google saw this as an opportunity and another revenue stream for them. Google’s tool offering has been a win for consumers so even though it took business away from third party tool vendors, I cannot be too critical of this move.

Then there is Google’s RMF (required minimum functionality) policy. This is where I see the Ugly. Google’s RMF stipulates the requirements that application vendors must meet to gain API access and it has become extremely burdensome for application developers. In the beginning the RMF requirements were manageable but they have increased to the point that they now represent more than 50% of Google’s ad management features. This is placing a heavy burden on both small and large tool vendors. Making matters worse, many requirements are not based on consumer needs. Developers are forced to meet requirements that the end user has no use for.

I think this policy has become tantamount to unfair business practices for the following reasons.

  1. The requirements are not there to meet customer needs, wants or desires since customers use software tools as an alternative to what Google offers.
  2. The requirements hurt agencies and marketers as there are fewer alternatives to choose from and the alternatives that are available are more expensive.
  3. The requirements add significant risk to small business software vendors as they have to allocate their resources to keep up with Google’s demands and have less time to improve their core features that ARE based on customer needs.

I am glad Google has been a socially responsible company in many areas and it is very important for Google to remain as one in the future.  To do it, we, the industry insiders need to express our view to companies like Google.  Let us know how you would rate Google.

How SAAS and cloud based businesses can use lead data to optimize search campaigns

Search Marketing for Cloud BusinessIf your business offers software as service (SAAS) or cloud based services, then you know only too well that the growth of this business model has exploded in recent years. The technical advances associated with SAAS and the cloud has created many new business opportunities.  But along with those opportunities come new competitors making it increasingly difficult for you to cut through the advertising and marketing clutter and get your product or service to stand out.

A common approach for marketing SAAS and cloud based services that has met with varying success is the limited time free trial offer. While this can be an extremely effective marketing strategy, your success is dependent on the effectiveness of your search marketing campaign. An optimized campaign must have the ability to get your message in front of your target audience and then to generate quality leads or signups that are the most likely to convert into paying customers.

While that may not sound too difficult, the data on success rates is a bit sobering. It tells us that no more than 30% of those who sign up for a free trial will actually convert to a paying customer. To improve your odds, you need to know not only which clicks will become a signup but just as important, which signups are most likely to convert.

So what are the keys to improving your odds and optimizing campaigns?  You must determine which lead attributes are resulting in the highest sales conversion. Lead attributes can include;

  • Lead type such as call, signup, email or offline leads
  • Lead medium such as CPC, organic, referral or email
  • Lead source such as Google, Bing or Facebook
  • Finally, there are more specific attributes from leads of sponsored search advertising such as keyword, ad copy and landing page

Once lead performance is segmented by these attributes, you then need to apply this data to your search campaign optimization.  While this process is not too difficult to comprehend, building this process and automating it is not so easy. It requires that all of your lead data be integrated with your search campaign and then using this lead data to optimize for conversion rate of a lead becoming a sale.

Optimizing your campaigns using lead data is a key to success. It is more efficient, fewer dollars are spent as targeting is more focused, higher conversion rates are achieved as you know where highest signup rates and highest conversions come from. While it is possible to implement this approach to campaign optimization manually, it can be time consuming. We recognized this challenge and went to work to develop a solution aimed specifically at SAAS and cloud based who rely heavily on the limited time free trial offer.  For more info, visit this page.

Keyword bidding strategies for the seasonal business can be tricky

Seasonal businessWhen conversion cost is a primary consideration in selecting your bidding strategy, ROI based bidding tends to be one of the most popular approaches. This strategy can be extremely effective but there are a few pitfalls to avoid particularly if your business is seasonal and you utilize seasonal keywords. With the holiday shopping season just around the corner, you’ll soon be developing your seasonal ad campaigns. Before you do, I offer some tips and tricks for avoiding one of the pitfalls associated with seasonal keywords and an ROI based bidding strategy.

The challenge with seasonal keywords when using ROI based bidding is that they will be penalized for marginal performance during ‘off-season’ time periods and can only be ‘rescued’ manually with an inflated bid price. To avoid this pitfall and the need to manually ‘rescue’ keywords, it is necessary to use an alternative keyword bidding strategy, which is rank driven bidding with rules based on conversion count, cost per conversion, QS and CTR.

Here is an example of how this approach could be set up. First you would select ‘rank driven’ as the bidding strategy for your campaign and default max bid to control the top ceiling of your bid price. Next, you would group keywords into three tiers with two rules set based on cost per conversion. The top tier would have the lowest cost per conversion and be characterized by superior keyword performance. The bottom tier would represent an unacceptable cost per conversion. Because rank driven bidding is primarily controlled by the rank of ad position (1 to 10) it will keep keyword ads in play unlike ROI or conversion based bidding. Then when keyword performance returns to an acceptable level going into the sales season, it will adjust itself without human intervention.

There are two other approaches for controlling keyword bidding when using a rank driven bidding strategy. The first involves setting a max bid price of each tier group. For example, for the top tier you would assign the highest max bid price at 30% higher than the campaign default max bid. For the bottom tier you would apply a max bid that is 30% below the campaign default max bid. This adjustment of max bid allows rank driven bidding to be in check with cost per click while still setting target ad position.
See an example of this approach below.

Keyword group       Target rank    Max bid
Top tier                     1.5 or 2        $5
Campaign default     3                  $3
Bottom tier                5 to 10         $2

In addition, branding keywords are generally low cost and perform ideally. They can be set as the keyword level position goal with top rank, but with a lower max bid than the top tier group. For more info, sign in below or visit the site.

Marketing Automation for Small Business

business software for asphalt paving business

asphalt paving business

If you are running asphalt paving & sealcoating business, chances are you live and die by the success of your lead generation efforts. You spend a significant amount of time and money to generate a constant flow of new leads but are then faced with the task of effectively managing these leads and improving lead quality.

Many lead tracking and management tools are designed for businesses with complex lead management systems that include a long sales cycle and multiple sales reps that take ownership of a lead. These can be great tools for the right business. However, they are not suitable for your line of business and you may be paying too much for features you don’t use.

I understand this line of business relies heavily on paid search marketing, and local business listing along with Facebook and email marketing.
One of the biggest challenges to run paid search is to determine best performing search term and keywords and how much to bid on to improve campaign performance and optimize marketing efforts.

But, what does it take to improve both campaign performance and marketing efficiency? We think it comes down to one word: Integration; the ability to seamlessly integrate your lead management with your ppc (pay per click) management.
