  • Why Your Google Ads Aren’t Getting Results
July 30, 2021

As a business owner, you want your Google ads to be as successful as possible. 

Unfortunately, many people struggle to launch a successful Google ad campaign, and without a strong understanding of what they’re doing wrong, there’s no fixing it. 

In this blog post, we will discuss some of the most common reasons why you might not be seeing the results you want with your Google ads.

1.  You haven’t set goals or a budget

The first part of creating an ad strategy starts with setting your goals and a reasonable budget. If you skip this step, you won’t be able to keep track of your progress, nor will you be able to monitor your ad spend. This is a setup for disaster.

Fortunately, budget and goals are like conjoined twins. Creating goals will help you figure out what your initial ad spend and budget should be. Your budget can also be fine-tuned later on to help you better meet your goals. 

2. You’re blindly running ads

One of the most common mistakes that business owners make when creating Google ads is blindly running them.

What we mean by this is creating ad campaigns and targeting audiences without first analyzing and researching who your target audience is.

This makes it difficult to create relevant and appropriate messaging for your audience and causes you to waste money by targeting the wrong people.

3. You’re using an overly-aggressive bidding strategy to try to outbid competitors

Another common mistake that could be causing your Google ad strategy to fail is attempting an overly-aggressive bidding strategy to outbid your competitors. This often leads to wasted ad spend as there isn’t enough budget allocated for higher bids.

It’s also important to note that bid adjustments need to be made on a continuous basis, which many people tend to put off due to how time-consuming and impossible it can be if you don’t have the right tools in place.

4. You’re targeting an audience that’s too big

Another reason why your ads might not be generating results is if you’re targeting audiences too broadly, meaning that you’re wasting money reaching people who have no need for your product or services.

This can also happen when advertisers take a more general approach to advertising, rather than focusing on one specific product or service. When people see ads that don’t align with their interests, they’ll just scroll right past and ignore you.
