AMA in the PM: SEM Solutions to Take Your Campaigns to the Next Level

Managing SEM campaigns without the right tools is like hammering nails with a screwdriver. You can do it, but it’s not going to be pretty.
As the digital marketing industry becomes more automated, customized, and efficient, marketers need to upgrade their tool kit and start using the powerful solutions to be more strategic and provide their customers the perfect digital journeys.

Instead of utilizing generic mapping to the millions of keywords, ads can be automatically generated and customized to each person. Search engines have improved their technology to allow paid search marketers to skip the keyword build-outs and match the relevant information in the exact moments they are searching, unique to them at that very moment, no keywords involved.

The same functionality that indexes the company’s website for SEO purposes, can now be used for paid search by automatically creating ads for on-site products that match exactly what people were searching for. Additionally, remarketing tools allow marketers to better understand their target audience and how to reach them. When done well, it is possible to push the limits of this technology and see tremendous gains in personalization and scale.

In this presentation Account Director, Arden Kaley, and Senior PPC Manager, Sara Furney-Howe, discussed some of their favorite Search Engine Marketing solutions that have improved their campaigns and how you can implement them too.

Key Takeaways

  • Leverage Google’s organic website crawling technology to deliver custom ads
  • Implement efficient strategies that avoid relying on extensive keyword lists
  • Retarget searchers to bring back those that didn’t convert
  • Diversify your paid media types
  • Layer strategies together to maximize results
