Whether your accounts have become a mess or if you have not yet started advertising with paid search, our PPC Strategists have a perfect track record of helping yield a positive ROI within a short period of time.

PPC for Franchises – Easier Than You Think

Having personally managed dozens of franchise and businesses with multiple locations, there isn’t much our team hasn’t seen. We’re used to challenges and tough obstacles and, in fact, we live for both.

Whether you have two locations or 2,000 locations, we can build a manageable strategy for creating (or rebuilding), managing and automating paid search initiatives. The strategy gives you the bandwidth you need to A/B test, multivariate test and experiment with new landing pages and ad copy ideas.

Recent Case Study

One account we helped build a strategy for in 2015 involved a robust bid management system, a master MCC with regional MCC’s and one corporate MCC, all containing accounts for each individual store (over 100 total).

Having historical data and recent performance reports, we were able to identify a high-level action plan to see CPA improvements within 30 days, followed by a six-month strategy of optimizing individual accounts one at a time.

Within each account, we used a predefined checklist with action items such as the following:

  • Adding location exclusions on lower-performing zip codes
  • Adjusting mobile bids and mobile ads
  • Adding/negative-matching search term data from AdWords & Search Console
  • Adding search terms from the latter to landing page copy
  • Adding extensions to ad groups (site links, callouts, phone, local, etc.)
  • and more

This, of course, was a unique circumstance where the accounts were already set up and organized with a focus on higher-converting keywords. Every case will be different, and it’s not uncommon for us to suggest starting over in a new account when Quality Scores across the board have been historically low.
