Google Ads management – get 12:1 ROI
PPC management ensures you make the most out of your Google Ads advertising. Google Ads connects prospects with your business by showing your ads at the exact moment that prospects are searching for what you offer. It can be very profitable if set up and managed correctly, but poor set up and management can be a drain on your finances. Google Ads is not a ‘set it and forget it’ system, your account needs continual optimisation and improvement, to ensure you maximise return on ad spend.
As a Google Ads consultant, we offer PPC management for businesses in London, East Sussex and across the UK.
Espan Digital have looked after our PPC and SEO for almost three years and we regard them as a key partner in our business. They deliver strong results and went above and beyond to support us when we re-launched our website this summer. Espan run our PPC and SEO with professionalism and a close attention to detail – and always to deadline.

Our PPC management process
It’s our responsibility to ensure that the time we invest in your PPC management maximises returns. Some tasks are manual, some automated and others semi-automated. For example, we often use specialised software rather than Excel pivot tables, to minimise the time spent on analysis.
We take a holistic approach to managing your PPC advertising, and integrate with other active marketing channels such as organic search, radio and TV advertising.
The goal of the optimisation is usually to increase your return on ad spend and profit for your business, and this underpins all activity on your PPC campaigns.
Our process includes, but is not limited to the following tasks, although, there is much more to it, as the elements below have sub-tasks, but this gives you an idea of what is involved.

Conversion optimisation, based on defined goals, e.g. lower cost per conversion, increase volume.

Benefits of PPC management
Opting for monthly optimisation of your Google AdWords account and campaigns offers greater value for money, as the money you invest into continued optimisation will undoubtedly pay for itself.
With ongoing PPC management, we regularly optimise all aspects of your account, so that you maximise your return on ad spend and minimise wastage. This is especially important if you have a larger media spend. It’s also important for newer accounts, depending on account size, where many more adjustments are required, than established older accounts that have already had a lot of optimisation, although these PPC accounts still need work. Without ongoing work, it’s likely that performance will worsen over time and potentially there will be higher wastage.
Google Ads releases updates and new features, functionality and processes as they improve their platform. Therefore, it’s vital to keep up to date and on top of these changes so that your AdWords results remain above and beyond those of your competitors. Examples include new ad formats that Google have rolled out over the last several years, allowing more headlines etc. Another example is the changing nature of the way keywords in your account are triggered by broader search terms in Google search results. Ongoing PPC management enables the opportunity to use all new features and have an edge on your competitors who are less agile or who aren’t doing regular work on their pay per click campaigns. It’s true that digital marketing, PPC and Google search progresses at an astonishing pace and it’s important to keep up to date. At Espan Digital, we keep up to date with the latest developments by reading several digital marketing and pay per click resources online, so you can be assured that your PPC advertising is in the best hands.
