 “Reporting is the most important client communication after onboarding!” 

Wanted: Executive experienced in data, digital, social & search. The ability to simultaneously and efficiently handle up to dozens of stakeholders (often with competing interests) a must. A successful candidate is skilled at managing up, managing down and balancing a P&L. Old-school thinkers need not apply!

I applied!

And I never looked back again!

From the day I joined PPCGeeks, my only focus was to learn as fast I could. I quickly found a mentor in Bethany. I read and implemented everything she suggested. I should say that I owe a lot to Larry Kim, Rand Fishkin, Neil Patel and Brian Dean for their actionable tips & techniques. In the next 18 months, I quickly rose through the ranks, handling SEO and Social accounts along with PPC, for my clients. I asked for bigger clients and my agency was more than happy to give me higher responsibilities.  

This week we had a long meeting on client satisfaction & retention and I was asked to submit a detailed roadmap. Without wasting time, I quickly began working on the report.

1. What are the 3 biggest factors that affect client satisfaction? I asked myself.

A. The answer was obvious to me:

  •  Transparency
  • Accountability
  •  Inclusion

2. How can we improve all the 3 factors?

A. Regular reporting

3. Why are we failing with reporting?

A. Because its manual and time taking.

I had found the theme of my roadmap, client report automation! So let’s get down to it. Tie on your AdWords apron, grab a pen to write down the key ingredients that form an integral part of the report. And follow along as I walk you through various kinds of automated Google AdWords client reports and the valuable insights they offer about the performance of an Adwords account.

Find the infographic on the various Google AdWords Custom Reports here.

Before delving into the reports, let’s look at various key ingredients that form the core of the report. Those includes :

  • Metrics
  • Segmentation
  • Dimensions
  • Filters

 

I. Metrics

“Without the right marketing metrics, you are shooting in the dark. The only way to know if things are working for you or not is those metrics.”   — Ian Brodie

 

If you manage a Google AdWords account to supplement your organic search engine optimization efforts, you know there are a ton of metrics available to track and analyze, and it can quickly get confusing and overwhelming. Since we all have limited bandwidth, it’s a good idea to narrow down the field to a short list of key metrics that really give you a meaningful insight into what’s working — and what isn’t.

Let us now talk in detail about the AdWords metrics that can provide valuable insights into the performance of an Adwords campaign. This infographic helps in understanding the key metrics that can provide a solid measure of your success.

 

A. Impressions

The first metric we should look at is the number of impressions for campaigns within the account. Impressions are the number of times your ad was displayed to a searcher audience based on matches between your campaign keywords and terms used within search queries. As a very broad statement, your ads need to be displayed in order to see any sort of performance in your account. If your ad isn’t showing, you’re not even giving searchers a chance to click anything and definitely not leading them down the road to conversions. The bottom line here is that you first need impressions if you’re expecting to perform well in other areas.

If you’ve looked at your impressions and feel like your ad is showing a significant amount of times based on your targeting, that’s awesome, you can move on to some of the more telling performance metrics.

 

B. Clicks

When someone clicks your ad, like on the headline of an expanded text ad, AdWords counts that as a click. Typically the more ad clicks the better as this means more people are coming to your website from the ads. Clicks can help you understand how well your ad is appealing to people who see it. Relevant, highly-targeted ads are more likely to receive clicks.

 

C. Click Through Rate (CTR)

Click-through rate (CTR) is one of the purest metrics and is the lifeblood of any good AdWords account. It is easily evaluated by dividing clicks by impressions.

 

CTR can be used to help you determine the quality of your imagery, positioning, and keywords. CTR helps evaluate how well you are communicating with searchers and can help determine the relevance and effectiveness of your campaign. A high ratio of clicks to impressions is an indication that you are targeting the right audience with appropriate keywords and ad text, and those searchers are responding by clicking through to your site – whereas a low CTR is pointing out that there is some disconnect between you and your audience.

 

D. Cost

 Are You aware of Where Your Money is Going?

Once your account is up and running (i.e. ads are showing and searchers are clicking), you’ll want to look at some metrics that dive deeper into how well your account is performing based on the most important metric: MONEY.

A huge aspect of interpreting your AdWords data is determining whether or not you are taking advantage of your advertising dollars and not wasting money. You can’t expect high profits if you have high costs, so you’ll want to make sure you’re reducing the wastage throughout your account.

 

E. Cost Per Click (CPC) and Cost Per Acquisition (CPA)

Cost per click, the amount you pay for each click, is important because it ultimately determines the financial success of your campaigns.

Cost per acquisition focuses more on how much your business pays in order to attain a conversion. Looking at both metrics will help you to answer the questions as to whether or not you are making money in your account. Generally, your CPA will be higher than your CPC because not everyone who clicks your ad will go on to complete your desired action (or in other words, convert).

It’s always a good feeling knowing that people are interested in your ads and are showing that interest by clicking, but if each click is costing you more than you would pay for a fancy dinner, it’s probably not going to feel too great at the end of the day. Your return on investment (ROI) will be determined by how much you are paying for clicks, and by what kind of quality you are getting for that investment. It’s important to monitor your CPC so that you can determine if you are under- or overpaying for clicks. And it’s equally important to monitor CPA because it determines whether or not your conversions are being driven at a cost that is profitable.

CPC, of course, varies depending on the competitiveness of the industry among other things, but you still need to take into consideration whether or not you can still make money after you pay for the cost of your clicks. That’s where CPA comes into play; if you’re paying more for that potential customer than you can make off of them, then essentially you are paying for that person to be your customer. Lowering CPC can require some strategy as you want to maintain value while lowering the price you’re paying for each click.

 

F. Average Position

A statistic that describes how your ad typically ranks against other ads. This rank determines in which order ads appear on the page.

The highest position is “1,” and there is no “bottom” position. An average position of 1-8 is generally on the first page of search results, 9-16 is generally on the second page, and so on. Average positions can be between two whole numbers. For example, an average position of “1.7” means that your ad usually appears in positions 1 or 2.

  • Your ad’s rank can change, causing its position on the page to fluctuate as well, so your average position can give you an idea of how often your ad beats other ads for the position.
  • You can see an “Avg. Pos.” column for your ads, campaigns, and other elements, but the average position is generally most useful to look at for your keywords. By seeing how your ad typically ranks when it’s triggered by one of your keywords, you can try to influence your position by changing the keyword’s bid.

 

G. Converted Clicks

A conversion happens when someone clicks your ad and then takes an action that you’ve defined as valuable to your business, such as an online purchase or a call to your business from a mobile phone. Conversions help you understand how much value your online ads bring to your business. In reporting terms, the change means the Conversions (One-Per-Click) will be replaced with “Converted Clicks,” and Conversions (Many-Per-Click) will be replaced by “Conversions.” Advertisers can think of the newly named columns this way:

Converted Clicks = Unique Customers.

This is “the number of clicks that convert within your chosen conversion window (typically 30 days)”.  So, if a customer makes two separate purchases after clicking on an ad, they will register as one Converted Click.

 

H. Conversion Rate (CR)

Conversion Rate is probably the most significant metric for your business because everything else is just numbered unless you can convert ad-clicks into revenue. It is very similar to CTR. Instead of impressions and clicks, it focuses on how many clicks lead to conversions. CR is used to evaluate the utility of incoming PPC traffic. How many of these users that click the add will go on to complete a purchase? This avoids the pitfall of CTR in that you ultimately measure which ad brings in the highest percentage of qualified traffic. The more you turn clicks into leads, and leads into satisfied customers, the higher your conversion rate will be.

 Why Conversion Rate?

The conversion rate is a great marketing performance metric for really drilling down to how your terms and ads are performing for you. You may have a great CTR, but if you aren’t converting any of those clicks, the conversion rate will help tell you that and you’ll know it’s time to optimize. Conversion rate also lets you look at the rate trend (vs. just absolute conversion number trend) which can help you compare to conversion rates from other advertising avenues – comparing to other metrics is vital in understanding how well your campaigns are performing outside of just your Adwords silo.

 

I. Total conversion value

Total conversion value is the sum of all conversion values for all conversions.

Make sure you are assigning a value to your conversions so you know the exact return you are seeing. This value should be assigned directly in your conversion tracking code. Though you can see conversion value through your analytics, it will be preferable to view cost and conversion value, and ultimately return on ad spend, directly within one place, the AdWords interface.

 

 

II. Segmentation

“Use segments to split your data into rows based on the options that matter most to you, such as periods of time, click type or device.”

You can  never meet a client who will not want to know as much as he could about his customers. Californians buy more beach balls on Sundays than on Monday. What helps you to drill down to such an extent? The answer is obvious, Segmentation. Segments allow advertisers to dig deeper into their performance metrics. It also helps to isolate high volume search queries: to eliminate the “noise” of analyzing too many variables at once.

Why Segment Your Adwords account?

Control and efficiency are the secrets to high-performance of an Adwords account. Segmenting your accounts by geo, device, network, etc., allows marketers to squeeze extra performance by customizing copy, landing page, bids, and budgets. Segments not only improve performance, but they can also keep your clients satisfied.

It also allows you to manage money more efficiently by illuminating natural browsing behaviors and optimizing towards them, taking money away from what doesn’t work, and putting it where it does. Pulling AdWords reports by day-of-week, hour-of-day, geo, and device helps refine bidding strategies by giving insight into trends that their competitors may not see.

For example, if a client in the online dating space tells us that women over 45 are more likely to subscribe than any other demographic, then we can specifically target this demo while pushing free signups to this demo at a much more aggressive CPA target. This data integration improves the working relationship by bringing SEMs closer to their clients’ businesses and permitting sophisticated reporting. The Segment option allows you to review your campaign performance data in a number of ways:

  • Network: Google Search, Search Partners, and Content.
  • Click type: URL clicks or click to call
  • Device: Computer or mobile device.
  • Conversion Type : Signed Up / Paid Conversions
  • Day: Performance by day.
  • Week: Performance by week.
  • Month: Performance by month.
  • Quarter: Performance by quarter.
  • Year: Performance by year.
  • Day of week: Performance by day of the week (Sunday through Monday), regardless of date.

All data is displayed for the date range selected in the AdWords UI. For example, if you’ve selected “Last 30 days” as the date range, segment data will display for that time period.

 

 

III. Dimensions

“The Dimension tab lets you slice and dice your data by the dimension of your choice across an ad group, a campaign, or your entire account.”

 

Why “Dimensions” tab is  so crucial?

You can use Dimensions to view statistics that cut across other AdWords tabs. For example, you can view your total stats by month, hour, or geographic region. You can customize your table to compare your total clicks in January across ad groups, or see individual cities where your clicks came from. These different Dimensions help you to dissect your account in a number of ways including the following:

  • Time
  • Conversions
  • Reach and frequency
  • Labels
  • Destination URL
  • Geographic
  • User locations
  • Search terms
  • Automatic placements
  • Free clicks
  • Call details

This may seem like a large list to work through but spending a bit of  time on each one can be fully beneficial for optimizing your account.

 

 

IV. Filters

“A search that you can do on your campaign data to restrict the type of data that you see in your tables and charts.”

Filter your account statistics to search for the data that interests you the most, such as keyword text, average cost-per-click (CPC), or impressions. Once you’ve created a filter, you can save it for easy access in the future.

  • When you’re viewing the statistics tables on your Campaign tab, you can use filters to search the table for specific information. For example, you can filter for keywords using a particular word, bids that are higher than a particular amount, and clickthrough rates (CTRs) that are lower than your average.
  • The filter options that are available depend on whether you’re viewing your keyword, ad, ad group, or campaign tables.
  • To create a filter, click the “Filter” button in the toolbar above any statistics table.

Filters can help optimizing your account by identifying the problem areas with keywords, ads, or campaign settings that may require action or could be improved.

 

 

 V. Google AdWords Client Reports

Why Reports?

  • Because it just takes 30 seconds to explain to the Clients how improving numbers are good for their business.
  • Opens the door to that longer conversation between the Clients and  the Digital ad agencies about the social raising business value
  • Quickly justifies the Digital ad agencies budget requests
  • Helps the Digital ad agencies to identify their most successful strategies and content pieces.
