Content Marketing

Content marketing is all about creating high quality content to naturally attract targeted traffic to your website. If you need more clarity then I think Copyblogger has got a perfect definition:

Content Marketing means creating and sharing valuable free content to attract and convert prospects into customers, and customers into repeat buyers. The type of content you share is closely related to what you sell; in other words, you’re educating people so that they know, like, and trust you enough to do business with you.

Today, content marketing is one of the primary marketing strategies of startup companies to attract targeted audience. The best example is, Buffer Blog. And here’s a sample blog post 30 Things You Buy That Are More Expensive Than Todoist Premium by Todoist Blog that instantly convinced me to buy their premium plan. Yes, Todoist is my favorite task manager app.

Web Analytics

Web Analytics is the process of analyzing the visitors to a website.

Landing Pages

A Landing Page is a web page, specifically designed for just one purpose at a time. It can be used for lead generation, could be a simple Call To Action that instructs the user to subscribe to a newsletter or to download an ebook, or to do something similar. It can involve images, videos, audio or just a few paragraphs.

Think of a golf course… a landing page is the putting green that you drive the ball (prospect) to. Once on the green, the goal is to get the ball into the hole. Likewise, the goal of the copy and design of a landing page is to get the prospect to take your desired action.

I’m featuring here some of the best landing page resources that I’ve collected over the past few months.

Conversion Optimization

Conversion Optimization is the process of optimizing the landing pages or the whole website itself so as to increase the conversion rate (or sales).

Conversion optimization is part art (listening to your gut) and part science (listening to the numbers) – it’s about making informed decisions and scientifically A/B testing your hypothesis to make your landing pages perform better.

It’s very important because when we make changes to a design we’ve to make sure that it doesn’t impact the sales or user experience in a negative way.

Bing Ads vs. Google AdWords

If you’re a search engine marketer and if someone asks you to name two search engines, it’s more likely that you mention Google and Bing (or maybe Yahoo), right? Of course there are other search engines like Baidu, Yandex, Blekko, DuckDuckGo, etc. but Google and Bing are the two real search engines that matter the most to advertisers. Why? Because Google and Bing (Microsoft & Yahoo) have a combined market share of over 90% in the U.S. search market according to comScore.

Google vs. Yahoo Bing Network: Search Market Share

Google has a search market share of 67.5% in the U.S. and the combined market share of the Yahoo Bing network is around 30% as of March, 2014. So it means that when you advertise on Google AdWords and Bing Ads you’re already reaching 90% of searchers. If you’re not promoting your business on Bing then it’s like you’re ignoring a large population as 1/3rd of all searches takes places on non-Google websites.

Now here are 10 features unique to Bing Ads when compared to Google AdWords:

1. Yahoo Bing Network Audience

Yahoo Bing Network

Bing Ads helps you reach 516 million unique searchers worldwide on the Yahoo Bing Network. It includes 168 million unique searchers in the U.S. and over 50 million of them do not use Google. According to Microsoft, Bing users spend 20% more than the average internet searchers. And if your competitors are not using Bing Ads then you also get a competitive advantage.

2. Low Cost Per Click (CPC) = Better ROI

Yes, that’s right! When you advertise on Google AdWords you’re actually paying a premium. AdGooroo, a market research company for search engine advertisers, previously compared Google AdWords and Bing Ads based on different performance metrics like Ad Impressions, Click-through Rates, Cost Per Click. They find that the average Cost Per Click (CPC) on Google AdWords for all the categories that they tested were higher than that of Bing Ads.

Average Cost Per Click (CPC) On AdWords & Bing Ads

I have also noticed in the past that the average Cost Per Click on Google AdWords were ~20% higher than that of Bing Ads for the same set of keywords. And for highly competitive keywords the average Cost Per Click on AdWords were double than that of Bing Ads. Also, an infographic by Search Engine Journal suggests that the Cost Per Mille (CPM) on AdWords was 4.2 to 11.2 times higher than on Bing Ads in U.S.

3. Filter Search Partners

In Google AdWords, if you want to block your ads on a specific search partner network then you have to turn off all the search partner networks. But Bing Ads tells you how your ads are performing on individual search partner networks so that you can tweak your campaigns. You can find these stats by heading here: Bing Ads > Reports > Standard reports > Performance > Website URL (publisher). For instance, if you find that the conversion rate for a specific search partner is extremely low then you can exclude that network from your ad groups or campaigns. You can go here for more details.

4. Set Daily/Monthly Budget

In Bing Ads you can set monthly budget or daily budget for a campaign but in Google AdWords you can set only daily budget. Go here to learn more about budget options in Bing Ads and go here to learn more about how to set a budget for your campaign in Google AdWords.

5. Bing Ads Accepts PayPal (U.S. Only)

Google AdWords doesn’t accept PayPal (in fact I can’t recollect any Google products that accepts PayPal) but Bing Ads customers in the U.S. can add PayPal as a payment method. Go to Bing Ads > Accounts & Billing > Payment Methods to link your PayPal account with Bing Ads.

6. Writing Ad Copy Is Easier

Both Google AdWords and Bing Ads support only 25 characters for the ad title and  ~ 70 characters to describe the ad. In Google AdWords we have to describe the ad in two lines (35 characters each) but in Bing Ads we can enter the description in one line (of 71 character). It doesn’t make much difference technically but when you write an ad copy you’ll find it useful since you don’t have to split the description into two.

7. Less Advertiser Competition

There are over 1 million advertisers on Google AdWords. It means that the competition for the #1 ad spot on Google is much high compared to Bing Ads. So fewer advertisers must be bidding for a keyword on Bing Ads than on AdWords and it increases the chances of getting higher ad rank.

8. Negative Keywords

Bing Ads does not use broad match for negative keywords but in Google when you enter a keyword as a negative match it will be treated as a broad match. What does that mean? In Google AdWords, when you enter a keyword as a negative match Google will treat the keyword as a broad match (unless you used special symbols). For example, if you add “women” as a negative match then ads won’t show for the following keywords: “women”, “hats for women”, “women’s hats” but ads will show for “girl’s hats”, “sun hats”.

Now in Bing Ads, if you add “women” as a negative match then ads will show for all the above keywords (“hats for women”, “women’s hats”, “girl’s hats”, “sun hats”) except for the keyword “women”.

9. Set Time Zones At Campaign Level

In Google AdWords we set a time zone at an account level and Google allows to change it only once. But in Bing Ads, we can set account and campaign level time zones. You can’t change the time zone of a campaign once it is set but we can always create a new campaign with a different time zone and can import ads and keywords from another campaign.

10. Ad Group & Campaign Level Settings

In Google AdWords there are only campaign level settings so we can’t change individual ad group settings. But in Bing Ads, we can change language & location, default bids, demographic targeting, device targeting, ad rotations, etc. at the ad group level and it means better control over ads.

Go to Bing Ads > Campaigns > “Campaign Name” > Settings to control the settings of each campaign and go to Bing Ads > Campaigns > “Campaign Name” > “Ad Group Name” > Settings to control the settings of each ad group.

BONUS: 10 Bing Ads (Microsoft adCenter) Facts You Should Know

  1. When you advertise on Bing Ads, your ad appears on the Yahoo Bing Network (Microsoft & Yahoo properties).
  2. Yahoo Bing Network also comprises their syndicated partner websites like Facebook, Amazon, Monster, WebMD, CNBC, Viacom, etc. that you can’t reach using Google AdWords.
  3. If you’re a Google AdWords advertiser then you can quickly import all your existing campaigns from AdWords to Bing Ads.
  4. Bing Ads now shows up to 50,00 keywords at “Ad Group” level as well as the “Account and Campaign” level.
  5. If you want to edit hundreds of campaigns at once then Microsoft offers Bing Ads Editor, a desktop application. With Bing Ads Editor, you can edit ads, ad groups, and hundreds of keywords at the same time even if you’re offline.
  6. You can make your Bing Ads payments using Credit Card, PayPal, Check, SEPA Direct Debit (Germany), Boleto Bancário (Brazil), and also using Debit Cards and Bank Transfer in some countries.
  7. You can also make your payments using Bing Ads Coupons since promotional codes are also considered as a type of currency.
  8. You can use the Ad Preview Tool to check whether your ad is appearing for a keyword on Bing. It shows whether the keyword that you have entered triggered any of your ads.
  9. Use Bing Ads Intelligence, an add-on for Microsoft Office Excel, for more comprehensive keyword research.
  10. Use Bing Ads’ Search Terms Report to view all the zero-click search queries so that you can add those keywords as negative matches and improve click-through-rate (which in turn reduces advertising costs).
Conclusion

As you can see there are some advantages when you advertise on Bing Ads. But it doesn’t mean that you must use Bing Ads only since it’s Google who controls the search market (right?). Now if you’re a small business owner then an Entrepreneur.com article suggests that Bing Ads offers better support to small businesses than Google. Because you have to spend $500,000/year on AdWords to get a dedicated account representative but on Bing Ads you have to spend only $500/month (i.e. $6,000 annually).

Free Pay Per Click Advertising Credits

Pay Per Click advertising (or simply PPC Advertising) is an Internet Marketing model where advertisers pay only when their advertisement is clicked.

The most popular Pay Per Click advertising networks are Google AdWords, Bing Ads (formerly Microsoft adCenter and MSN adCenter), and Yahoo! Search Marketing.

What’s interesting about the pay-per-click advertising model is that there’s no minimum spending requirement. For instance, you can set a daily budget of $5 and maximum cost per click (CPC) as 5 cents. And you pay only when someone clicks on your ad. It’s that simple!

Free Pay-Per-Click Advertising Credits

Start your Search Engine Marketing campaigns with free credits. Most of the pay-per-click advertising networks (Google AdWords, Yahoo! Search Marketing, Microsoft adCenter, Ask.com, BidVertiser, Miva, etc.) offer free ad credits to attract new customers. So here are the various PPC networks and their available free ad credits. Sign up today!

Bing Ads Coupon

Bing Ads

Bing Ads is now offering higher credits to attract more advertisers. The promotional credit depends upon your location and is different for different countries. Bing ad credit for the United States and Canada is $50, for UK it’s £50, for France it’s €50, for Germany it’s €50, for India it’s Rs. 1,000, for New Zealand it’s $40 NZD, and for Australia it’s $40 AUD. Moreover, your address, currency, and the coupon code should match (e.g. U.K. address, GBP currency; UK coupon).

Bing Ads Coupon (USA)

Bing Ads Canada Coupon

Bing Ads UK Coupon

Bing Ads France Coupon

Bing Ads Germany Coupon

Bing Ads India Coupon

Bing Ads Australia Coupon

Bing Ads New Zealand Coupon

Yahoo! Search Marketing Coupon

Yahoo Bing Network

As you probably know, Microsoft & Yahoo! formed the Yahoo Bing Network. So all you need is a Bing Ads account to advertise on the Yahoo Bing Network (an advertising marketplace made up of Yahoo, Bing, and their partner websites). But if your monthly budget is above $1,000 then you can sign up here and a Yahoo sales representative will contact you.

The Yahoo Bing Network is the combined advertising marketplace made up of Yahoo, Bing, and syndicated partner sites such as Facebook, Amazon, Monster, WebMD, CNBC, and Viacom, plus networks like The Wall Street Journal Digital Network.

Google AdWords Coupon

Google AdWords

Google AdWords now requires you to accrue advertising charges ($5~50 – depending upon the voucher) in order to get free ad credits. You have to request your code by filling out a form and they’ll e-mail you the offer code.

*If the above AdWords links didn’t work for you or you haven’t received the coupon code by e-mail and you never opened an account before (an existing AdWords customer is not eligible for a promotional credit unless they invite you) or never redeemed a coupon before then you can call their support center and they’ll give you $100 credit (based on your location) to try AdWords.

BidVertiser Coupon

Facebook Ads Coupon

Amazon Product Ads

Google AdWords Key Highlights

  • AdWords is super effective for all businesses.
  • Demographics and locations can be chosen by advertisers before showing ads.
  • Campaigns can be modified, stopped or paused anytime.
  • With the CPC pricing, advertisers need to pay only when the ads are clicked on by prospective clients.
  • Tracking of expenditure and performance of ads and the campaigns is easy.
  • Advertisers can keep a check on the budget for an ad or campaign and control it regularly.
  • There is no minimum budget for a campaign and hence it is pocket friendly.

Free Google AdWords Voucher Code Worth $100

As you might have already noticed, Google AdWords changed the way coupons work and now advertisers are required to accrue initial advertising charges ($5 to $50) within 31 days of entering the coupon code that you have received. Also, you must redeem the coupon code before its expiry date.

You’ll be charged when you exceed the promotional credit but you’re free to suspend your ads anytime before the credit is exhausted. AdWords won’t notify you the status of your promotional credits so you need to monitor your campaigns regularly to make sure that you haven’t exceeded the free ad credits.

Free Google AdWords Promotional Code

When you get the coupon code you can login to your AdWords account (or create a new account if you’re a new advertiser) and navigate to Billing to enter your promo code.

If the above links didn’t work for you or you haven’t received the coupon code by e-mail and you never opened an account before (an existing AdWords customer is not eligible for a promotional credit unless they invite you) or never redeemed a coupon before then you can call their support center and they’ll give you $100 credit (based on your location) to try AdWords.

And Wait… Here’s How To Find AdWords Coupons By Yourself

If you know how to use Google’s site search effectively then you can find AdWords coupons by yourself. It is possible because most of the AdWords’ landing pages that offer free advertising credit are indexed by Google. So you can search “free advertising credit”, “free $100 credit”, etc. on Google using the following format: https://www.google.com/search?q=site:www.google.com+free+advertising+credit.

You’ll see a list of AdWords offer pages that says free ad credits but make sure that you’re signing up only after getting the coupon code. But yeah, you can even apply the coupon code after the sign up process because as long as you never applied a promotional code to your account your account is eligible.

And that’s not all, you can enter multiple coupons in a single AdWords account as you go. But don’t think about abusing the system as it doesn’t work that way. You sign up for a new account, accrue the initial spending requirements,  and then apply the first promotional code that you have received. When your coupon code is fully redeemed and if you continue to promote your business on AdWords as a paying advertiser then you can apply another promotional code after 3 months or so (depending upon the new offer code). And don’t think about opening multiple AdWords account only to redeem promotional codes. Because they will suspend all your accounts and may even black list you so that you won’t be able to open a new account.

Sometimes even if you don’t become a paid advertiser, Google may e-mail you new promotional credit in order to bring you back to AdWords. It usually happens when your AdWords account is inactive for several months.
