Performance Tuning the PPC Campaigns of a National Auto Services Company
With AdWords spend above $100K per month, a national auto services chain turned to Bruce Clay to maximize its pay-per-click ad performance.
Business Goals at the Outset
A Fortune 1000 company with a nationwide chain of auto service centers needed to:
- Drive more business without increasing advertising spend
- Decrease the average cost per conversion (CPC)
What We Did
Our PPC services team went to work to maximize this client’s large ad budget with a three-step approach.
- Checked AdWords tracking: We first verified that tracking was set up properly and quality assured in order to accurately monitor ad click-throughs and calls.
- Segmented campaigns: Next we evaluated and segmented campaigns into the most efficient budget groups.
- Implemented advanced bid optimization: Our PPC analysts deployed a CPA Optimizer to manage campaigns using AdWords conversion scripts. The phased implementation across all accounts took two weeks.
