It takes 9 clicks to see where your spending goes in Google Ads, but once you find that data... then what? Start using it like a data scientist to boost your bottom line (no degree required!).

HOW TO: Collect and use Google Ads data to drive predictable, scalable revenue


1. Forget clicks, prioritize ad campaigns based on cost per marketing/sales qualified lead

2. Connect your CRM to Ads to see campaign lead contributions from different channels

Get all of your data in one spot to see where your MQLs and SQLs are actually coming from, whether it be search, phone calls or standard lead forms.

3. Use data from the Search Terms Report to manually optimize bids by device & location

If more people are searching for you on mobile phones near universities, increase your bids in those locations by 20-30%, taking from areas that aren’t as popular.

4. Set up smart bidding, key if/when rules and qualifying scripts to direct the automation

The rules let you keep a tight grip on what the AI bids on, and scripts can help you automatically control bidding down to a change in the weather.

5. Find keywords through Broad Match Modified Search Campaigns and zero in on the top performers with Exact Match Campaigns

There’s no guesswork with keywords. Let the data decide what keywords & Single Keyword Ad Groups (SKAGs) to focus on. Again, increase the bids by 20-30%, reallocating from the losers.
