  page to showcase your business. It usually takes only 15 minutes to

   With AdWords and hosted business pages, you'll be able to reach
         potential customers with a few quick and easy steps.

Advertise by Location

 Location in ad text can increase performance
 • Attracts attention of local users
 • Non-local users will not click on ad

                   New York Advertising

Inter-capitalize Display URL

  Inter-capitalizing your display URL may make your ad
   stand out more and lead to better clickthrough rates

Including Multiple Ads

   Use multiple ads to test messages and see which on works best

Controlling Costs
 • No minimum spend
 • You choose your own maximum daily spending limit (daily budget)
 • Choose how much you want to spend per click for every keyword
 • Pay Google for users who click on your ad
 • Conversion tracking = real-time return-on-investment data

Relevancy Decreases Your Cost

   The ad rank depends on the relevance of the ad
     and your maximum bid
      • Rank = Quality Score * Maximum CPC

   It is possible for the higher ranked ad to have a
       lower cost per click than its competitors
   If your ad is more relevant, you can still compete
      against someone with more money

And Targeting Is Easy…


                            AdWords gives you the option to target the
                         location where your ad will be visible to potential

                          If you want your ad to be shown to all relevant
                         searches in a particular country, you can simply
                                         select a country

                          If you would like to target a local area within a
                         country, simply enter a city name or postal code
                         to search and select the area where you would
                                      like your ads to show
Regional and Local Targeting

  You can target ads so they appear only in locations of
  interest to you – your neighborhood, your service
  areas, your city or your state.

   Select from pre-defined            Define the area,
          geographies      OR
                                    customize the targeting
