What Was the Problem Statement?

Bliss Car Wash approached us to design an automated PPC campaign to reduce customer acquisition costs while increasing ROI. They wanted to reach out to potential customers cost-effectively and drive more sales.

They were getting poor results with PPC marketing. Bliss Car Wash didn’t have an agency doing the right job for them. They were losing out on potential customers due to a lack of a proper automated PPC strategy.

While Bliss Car Wash was already doing good business, it wanted to extend its reach to newer markets and acquire more customers. With an automated PPC campaign, they could target the right audience quickly and reach out to potential customers cost-effectively.

It was vital for them to measure their PPC campaigns’ success accurately. This would help them better understand customer behavior and make informed decisions about their marketing strategies.

What Was FVG’s Approach?

Our team of PPC experts worked closely with Bliss Car Wash to understand their goals and objectives. We analyzed their existing campaigns and identified areas of improvement.

We then developed a tailored PPC automation strategy that targeted potential customers and kept acquisition costs low. These PPC automation strategies include:

Automated Bidding Strategies

Our PPC team presented automated bidding as a cost-effective, performance-driven way to manage campaigns. Automated bidding allowed Bliss Car Wash to set bids for each keyword and ad group that would adjust based on user behavior. This, in turn, helped them maximize their ROI and acquire quality customers.

Dashboards Accessible to the Client

We provided a dashboard that allowed Bliss Car Wash to track the performance of each of its campaigns. This enabled them to analyze the performance of their PPC campaigns in real time and make informed decisions quickly.

They could see in real-time the actions our PPC team was taking and the results of those actions. This gave them complete transparency and control over their campaigns and allowed them to make changes quickly.

Ad Scheduling

This automation strategy allows you to schedule your ads to run when they are likely to perform best. We helped Bliss Car Wash optimize its ad scheduling to ensure its campaigns were seen by the right people at the right time. So they could maximize their ad impressions and visibility.

Automated Ad Rotations

This feature automatically rotates your ads to show the best-performing ones more often. Our PPC team set up automated ad rotations for Bliss Car Wash, so their ads were more effective and returned higher ROI. For example, we created a rule to rotate their ads every two weeks, so the best-performing ads were always shown first.

What Was the Impact?

The Bliss Car Wash PPC automation project was a success. Our strategies helped them save time and money and also reduce errors that may have occurred during manual tasks. The automated ad scheduling, rule-based automation, script automation, and automated ad rotations enabled Bliss Car Wash to reach more customers, increase their click-through rate, and maximize their ROI.

From the moment we started the project in March of 2023 to June of 2023, we Increased conversion rates by 72%, lowered costs per conversion by 60%, and Cost per click by 30%.

5 Actionable Lessons We’ve Learned About PPC Automation At Flying V Group

1. Volume is Key to Automated Strategy 

Automation thrives on data; the more data you have, the more effectively your automated PPC campaigns can perform. This means that volume – in terms of both ad spend and the number of conversions – is a crucial factor for successful automation.

2. Manual Oversight is Still Necessary

Despite the power of automation, human oversight is still necessary. Even the best-automated systems can make mistakes or miss nuances that a human marketer would catch. Regularly reviewing campaign performance is essential.

3. Automated Bidding Can Save Time

One of the key benefits of automation in PPC marketing is automated bidding. This can save significant time, as you no longer need to adjust bids for each keyword or ad group manually.

4. Optimize Your Creatives Instantly

PPC automation tools can help optimize your ad creatives by testing different variations and automatically prioritizing the ones that perform best. This allows for real-time optimization and can lead to improved campaign performance.

5. Sales and Marketing Alignment is Crucial

Successful automation relies on sales and marketing alignment. The purpose of automation isn’t just to make marketing jobs more efficient – it should also support the business’s overall goals. This means that the sales and marketing teams must work closely to ensure that automated campaigns drive the right leads and support the sales process.

Remember, automation is a tool to enhance your marketing efforts, not replace them. It’s essential to continually monitor, test, and refine your automation strategies for the best results.
