Formerly known as AdWords, Google Ads has now evolved into a complex feature-rich platform. Whilst it can offer huge opportunities, it can also be difficult to understand and navigate. As a result, a large percentage of campaigns are run at a loss, due to poor setup and management.
This Google Ads beginners course will give attendees both strategic and practical guidance on how to plan, create, manage and optimise their campaigns, maximising all available features within the platform. The course will also uncover "hidden" opportunities in Google Ads, providing attendees with practical advantages using the platform.
This session is very interactive, with practical demonstrations of the Google Ads interface throughout the day. The course also provides invaluable learning for anyone looking to take the Google Ads Certification exams in the future.
