Here’s a brief introductory video Google made that explains Google Search Console

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][wgl_spacing spacer_size=”31″][vc_column_text]Keep in Mind that Google is in the Business of Making Money!

Each year the Google Ad formats change, taking up more slots and more visible area in SERP (Search Engine Results Page) real estate.

Today, if you were to search for a local business or a service, you’ll most likely need to scroll past the ads to the bottom 2/3 of the visible screen space. On mobile, it’s almost two whole screen swipes down!

Here is an illustration of the first Organic Listing (assuming you have the best SEO in your area for that search term)

 

 

 

All in all, if you’re not advertising on Google you’re missing out. Especially if you’re not ranked #1 for every single keyword associated with your business! Google Ads is one of the fastest ways to grow your business online.

3: Google Ads (AdWords)

[/vc_column_text][wgl_spacing spacer_size=”21″][vc_column_text]Did you know that 90% of Google’s revenue is generated through its advertising offering?

The search results landscape is dramatically shifting in favor of Paid Search Results. Organic Search Clicks only account for 33% of all clicks…the rest is Ads.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1546660864393{padding-left: 20px !important;}”]

  • Top 3 Ad Spots take 41% of all search clicks
  • Display Ads Account for an additional 25%
  • Overall, sponsored results account for a whopping 66% of all clicks vs. 33% organic (SEO)
  • Google Returns an Average of $8 on each $1 Spent on Ads on the Low-End and as Much as $13 on the higher end.

This ROI is even higher for industries where the product or service costs thousands or millions of dollars.

For an example, a Home Builder can spend $25,000 on a marketing campaign and attract 60 potential buyers. Out of the 60 interested buyers, maybe 10% will wind up going through. If a home builder is selling homes that are starting at $500,000 and 6 people choose the lowest custom-build package, then you’re looking at $3,000,000 in new revenue.

That’s an 11,900% Return on Investment (before labor & materials)

Point is, Google Ads is one of the most profitable and measurable ways to market your business. Every business owner should at least give it a shot.

Technically, YouTube is in itself one of the largest search engines in the world! People seek answers, ideas, and experiences every day, multiple times per day.

Very creative team here. We hired them to develop an email nurture sequence then expanded our relationship to include Pay Per Click advertising. The most fascinating aspect is how they are able to define an ideal prospect, then bring them in from all corners of the internet.

Having the right marketing team is critical to your business’ success. After going through eight different marketing companies and lots of wasted money, we finally found a company that delivers and effectively promotes our business. Captive Nest has gone above and beyond what any of the other companies did or claimed they could do. The proof was in the number of leads we began to receive after just two weeks of going live with Captive Nest. In fact, we had to add additional phone lines and staffing just to keep up with all the leads we received. Vlad, who is our marketing agent with Captive Nest, communicates with us nearly daily and is very responsive to our calls and requests. With many of the previous companies, we always felt we were talking to a voice mail. It would often be days before our agent would respond or with responses like “your metrics look good”. With Captive Nest, I feel like our account matters to the company. A huge bonus is that they won’t market to the company right down the street from you. They genuinely want to grow the business with the customers they have and not just pump out generic advertising dribble. After going with multiple Google Premier Partners that claimed less than 1% turnover rates, we finally found a marketing company that produces results.
