Trades Business Tip: What Is Google AdWords? Should You Be Doing It?

Google Adwords or Pay-Per-Click Advertising.

We’re going to ignore Bing (I don’t really care about Bing). I was inspired to write this because I saw a thread on the Builders Talk Group on Facebook where someone was asking so here you go. I’m going to try and help you navigate through this.

Pay-Per-Click Ad

It’s called that because you pay every time somebody clicks your ad. You put an ad and you get to decide when your ad shows based on the words that people type in the search box. Someone might type ‘plumber Brunswick Heads’ and you can have your ad show up there when someone types that. And if they click on your ad, you’ll pay the money.

I’m Jon from Small Fish Business Coaching. I help my customers decide how to invest their marketing money to get the best return.
