Integrating Google AdWords Using Xplenty
About Google AdWords
Google Adwords is an advertising solution that focuses on a cost-per-click (CPC) model, which means that you pay each time a user clicks on your ad. As a business owner, you set both the maximum budget that you are willing to spend on Adwords per day as well as the maximum amount you are willing to pay for each click on your ad. Google then takes that information and combines it with a “Quality Score,” which is Google’s rating of how relevant your product or service is to the keyword that was used. They then use that rating to create a sort of instant auction, wherein your quality score helps determines both if you beat out your competitors for ad space and how much you pay for doing so (a higher relevance means paying less per click, but you never pay more than your set maximum). Therefore, in order to create an optimal pricing structure in Adwords, it is vital for you to have a clear idea of your traffic data and user demographics.
Xplenty and Google AdWords
Xplenty can help prepare data for you so that you can more easily determine both the correct keywords to choose and how valuable each click from users searching for those keywords will be to you. Xplenty can pull from data created by adwords, including direct market data such as cost-per-click, number of clicks, views, conversions, etc., as well as more indirect marketing data such as the demographics of the users clicking your ad (age, gender, location, etc.). You can then use Xplenty to prepare and transform that data in several ways that can help to give you a clearer view of your overall market performance on Adwords. Additionally, you can use Xplenty to merge that data with data from other sources, such as Google Analytics, Hubspot, and Marketo in order to give you a wider view of how well your ad is functioning within Adwords. Finally, Xplenty can move that transformed, sorted, and merged data to a data warehouse, which can allow you to more easily follow historical trends and create a fuller, more accurate view of your ad’s performance in Google Adwords over time. Ultimately, Xplenty helps you to explore the data provided by Google Adwords in a clear and accurate way, which allows you to properly optimize your advertising options.
