A Team of Vancouver Based Google Ads Management Experts

For 99% of businesses some type of Google advertising will likely end up in your strategic marketing plan. And it’s for good reason as Google’s range of products are nearly all-encompassing. Salt Water Digital has been a certified partner with Google since our inception and we continue to work hard to stay on top of the most effective marketing trends available.

Buy Traffic with Intent

For many local service based businesses, the bulk of your ad budget will likely be focussed on Google Search Ads. As people search for the services you provide, showing up at the top of the search engine is vital to have a chance at the sale. And for many businesses, the chances of organically securing the top spot on Google without a fantastic SEO plan are slim to none. With search ads, you can buy your way to the top and do it in an affordable way with Salt Water Digital.


Re-Engage with Already Engaged Users

It’s often not on the first visit that you will secure the sale. Instead, you’ll need to warm up your audience by re-engaging with them through what we in the industry call ‘Retargeting’. Luckily, Google’s Display network offers some of the worlds best websites that can host your ads easily and affordably. Combine Google Retargeting with other platforms such as Facebook and YouTube and it won’t be long before your phone or e-mail is blowing up.

E-Commerce Powerhouse Tool

For e-commerce companies, Google Shopping is always worth a trial. A well built out e-commerce store will typically do quite well with Google Shopping. In fact, we’ve seen some extremely impressive return on ad spends with Shopping to the sweet tune of over 12 to 1.

Our Google Ads Management Process

Keyword Research and Strategic Planning

The first step in any Google Ads Campaign is to have a strategic Google Ads plan. Collaboration is key which is why we’ll always have a strategic planning session once the decision to move forward with Google Ads has been made.

From there, we move forward with keyword research - identifying potential high-performing keywords and what bids will allow us to be competitive.

Google Ads Account Setup & Configuration

We move on to setting up your new Google Ads account or reconfigure your existing account to follow best practices. We’ll ensure Google Tag Manager and Google Analytics are installed if necessary and set up all of the necessary conversion tracking to track pre-determined KPIs.

In some cases, the setup and configuration can be quite complex depending on the integrations and features of your website.

We’ll write and design ads, configure ad extensions including call, structured snippets, sitelink, image and callout extensions.

Once everything is ready to go, we’re always happy to share full access to your Google Ads account. Side Note: If you’ve come across any agency that does not provide access for any reason RUN!

Ongoing Optimization and Google Ads Management

This is the stage where we really earn our management fee. Your account manager will be reviewing the data on a routine basis, eliminating any search terms that lack intent. This is one of the most important and time consuming aspects of running a campaign but is absolutely vital to the success of the account.

Further, we’ll be testing different ad copy, different keyword matching strategies and landing pages if necessary. Our goal is to get you the most high quality clicks for the best possible price. By doing so, this often results in the best conversion rates and conversion costs.

Google Ads Reporting

You’ll receive your first report, typically within 3 to 4 weeks of launch. After the initial report, we’ll provide you bi-monthly reports unless otherwise arranged. Our reports are simple and provide you with only relevant information you require to make decisions moving forward. You will not receive a 20 page PDF with fluff statistics to distract and confuse you. We care about performance and that typically means we care about conversions and ROI.

You can always feel free to touch base with your Google Ads account manager between reporting periods to provide feedback, ask questions or whatever else you might require.

Frequently Asked Questions

With Google products – and pretty much all digital advertising products – the more you spend the more you get. You can spend as little or as much as you’d like and we’ll always be there to advise you. Google primarily uses a ‘Pay-Per-Click’ system which means you only pay for the clicks you receive.
We never recommend running your own Google Ads unless you have the time to learn the platform properly and move beyond Smart Campaigns. For those with budget under $400/month, consider our Fee Free Program.
It really depends on the complexity of the account but fees will generally start at $300/month for management.
Before we start any advertising, we ensure that ad tracking is set up and working so that we can track conversions and ROI easily and effectively.
We typically recommend landing pages but it’s not necessary. If you have a website that has pages designed to convert with great call to actions, we can send traffic directly to those pages. It’s no problem to track.

We’re obviously a bit biased but we think we’re the best Google Ad management company for a few reasons:

  1. We have a ton of experience!  We’ve been working with Google Ads for nearly 10 years and have set-up and managed campaigns over a variety of industries.
  2. We’re transparent. The only way we can maintain a 5-star rating on Google is to be honest with our clients. Does every campaign work swimmingly? No. But we always try our best to get the best possible results for our clients. Unfortunately, the numbers just don’t make sense some time. 
  3. We’re a socially responsible organization! We donate 1% of all revenue to organizations across Canada, USA and the Philippines that are dedicated to making our planet a better place to live.

No, but there are industries we aren’t comfortable working with only because we lack the relevant experience. And we’ll always be upfront if we don’t think we’re the best people for the job. However, even if we haven’t run a campaign for your exact type of business, we likely have the playbook that will provide you success.
