Google Ads is a platform for paid advertising that operates under the pay-per-click (PPC) marketing model, in which you, the advertiser, pay per click or impression (CPM) on an ad.
Google Ads are a successful technique to attract qualified visitors, or good-fit clients, to your company who are looking for the goods and services you provide. You may improve in-store traffic, increase phone calls to your business, and increase internet traffic using Google Ads.
With Google Ads, you can make and distribute strategic advertisements to your target market on desktop and mobile devices. As a result, when your target clients use Google Search to look for goods and services similar to yours, your company will appear on the search engine results page (SERP).
By doing this, you can reach your target market at the right time for them to see your advertisement.
In order for your company to achieve all of your paid campaign objectives, Google Ads will eventually assist you in analyzing and improving those advertisements to reach more individuals.

9. Connect your Google Analytics profile.
If Google Analytics isn't already installed on your website, here's how to install it on WordPress so you can measure visitors, conversions, objectives, and any other special data. Additionally, you must connect your Analytics account to Google Ads. Because you can monitor these occurrences in one location, linking these accounts will make tracking, analysing, and reporting between channels and campaigns much simpler.
10. Add UTM codes
Google uses Urchin Tracking Module (UTM) codes to monitor any activity connected to a particular URL. It's the portion of a URL that comes after the question mark ("?"). You've probably encountered these before. In order to track the most successful components of your campaign, UTM codes will let you know which offer or advertisement resulted in a conversion. Since UTM codes let you know exactly what's working, optimising your Google Ads is much simpler. The secret is to enter your UTM codes when configuring your Google Ads so that you don't have to manually add them for each ad URL. If not, you can manually add them using Google's UTM builder.
11. Start tracking conversions.
How many clients or leads you actually received as a result of your advertising campaigns is revealed by conversion tracking. Although setting it up is optional, doing so will force you to estimate the ROI of your advertising. You can monitor purchases (or other actions) made through your website, app downloads, or phone calls generated by your adverts using conversion tracking.
12. Connect your CRM and Google Ads.
Keeping all of your data in one location where you can track, examine, and report on it has some merit. You already track contact information and lead flows in your CRM. You can track which ad campaigns are effective for your audience by integrating Google Ads with your CRM, allowing you to keep doing what is working.
