Always remember that your Adwords ad copy, and all PPC ad copy, must talk to the reader in terms of specific benefits. Never use any kind of template for your PPC ads because it’s just a recipe for dismal results. All PPC ads are trying to speak to a specific group of people, the particular target market, and so your ads are your first vehicle to do that with. So if you use generally written copy across all ad groups, then your Google Adwords Quality Score will probably decrease. As an example, you’re promoting your shirt business, and of course there all kinds of shirts: short sleeve, long sleeve, formal, informal, button, pull-overs, etc. You should have a set of keywords ready for each type of shirt that you will be selling and then proceed to write effective ads for each of those sets. Fine, you say, so what’s a PPC advertiser to do, then? You should have multiple ad groups for these keyword sets so that you know what kind of copy needs to be written for each ad group. First, this is what Google wants you to do, and if you don’t then you will receive penalties in the form of a low quality score. Each product, or service, always has one or two strong benefits, and that is what you must include in your ads. The best approach is to study other PPC ads, and you can also look-up how to write good classified ads. You should also try to show the benefit your customer would be deriving after buying your product. So first, sit down and figure out all the benefits your product has to offer, or your service. Your ad’s copy must be able to highlight your selling proposition. How well you can confer your uniqueness and advantage over your competitors will affect your results. Your readers should read your benefits, and it must make them feel that only you have what they’re looking for.
