Part 1: Perfecting PPC AdsBrad Geddes

A successful PPC account needs to properly test ads for continuous improvement. In this session, we will examine ad testing ideas, minimum viable data, settings for proper testing, and how to decide where you need to test. Next, we’ll examine mobile ads and how to control the user experience for your mobile advertising efforts. Finally, we’ll cover ad extensions and dive into how to control and use various extensions.

Automating PPC with Free Tools

Managing PPC accounts can be highly time consuming; but it doesn’t have to be once you starting automating your accounts. In this session, we’ll examine what automation is, when to automate versus when to use computer assisted or manual analysis; and then finally we’ll look at free tools that can help you automate your PPC accounts to save you time and money.

Part 2: AdWords Quality Score and Automation with ScriptsFrederick Vallaeys

Frederick Vallaeys will examine the AdWords quality score and automation using scripts in this valuable Pubcon Masters Group training session.

Part 3: Facebook Ad Optimization Tricks the Pros UseDennis Yu

Social ads are about amplifying user actions, not about broadcasting creative. Learn how to match the right content to the right audience by building target grids. Choose the right mix of sponsored



stories to grow audience and engagement. Discover when to optimize against CTR vs. against CPC — and three surprising cases where CTR or CPC don’t even matter. What is the skinny on the new sponsored results ads in Facebook search, and how does it differ from Google brand bidding.

We’ll also cover organizational issues — you will walk away with a framework to coordinate with folks on other marketing teams. Where does social advertising end and creative begin? How do you build a social ROI model that everyone else will buy into? If you’re a consultant or agency, what types of automation are most effective to manage many complex client campaigns? How do you estimate campaign performance when you don’t have historical data? When are Facebook’s own estimation tools faulty, requiring you to override them?

We’ll also equip you with ad campaign templates, weekly ad reporting documents, strategy documents to sell the value of your role, and other assets you get to swipe as a participant in this Masters Group training.
