Recruiting and briefing your AdWords management agency
Spending a little time to find and onboard the right AdWords campaign management is an essential step to getting your business in front of the right potential buyers.

AdWords do not achieve success overnight, and some experimentation will be needed to optimize your keywords and other campaign elements.
Prepare a tight brief
Be clear on what it is you are asking your AdWords consultant to deliver. An agency is only as good as its brief, and it is your responsibility to be as clear as possible. Define what you are looking for your agency to deliver. Is the focus of your campaign on leads, impressions, or brand awareness? The agency will need to know what they are trying to deliver. It is also important to agree what the agency will need from you to get up and running, and for their ongoing work. How often will they provide you with updates and metrics reviews? Being realistic about your expectations with your budget is also important. Google AdWords consultants are good at what they do, but they are not miracle workers. Identify your objectives and then be patient about getting results. Striking the right balance between the number and quality of leads is vital. Once your AdWords campaigns have had time to bed in, you will find that they will deliver great results. The quality of leads from people searching for what you offer is almost always better than you will obtain from other digital marketing channels.
How will your AdWords consultant add value?
Helping you decide on your strategy is the first value your agency will add. After that when the campaigns are up and running, they will be able to monitor and tweak the campaigns as they progress. Keeping an eye on your stats and keywords is vital, and a quick tweak here or there to capitalize on a good keyword or protect you from a bad keyword is vital. While it may be tempting to run AdWords campaigns yourself to save money on an outside AdWords service, it is difficult to get up to speed with the technicalities. Specialist agencies have these skills in abundance, which leaves you free to run your business and follow up the leads that will be coming in. Agencies will also be able to ready your other digital marketing elements to optimize your AdWords campaigns. Small tweaks to landing pages, ad copy and titles and even images can make all the difference. A good agency will also help you establish consistency across all your campaigns which is an important success factor.
Key questions to ask your agency
Talk your agency through this plan and ask if they are comfortable with it. Be clear about your budget with them and explain that you are in it for the long-haul to establish your firm's digital presence. This will allow the agency to plan and optimize your campaigns without the pressure to deliver instant results. Making sure you hire an agency you can work and partner with is vital to the success of your campaigns.
