How to advertise on Google

For marketing and communications professionals, social media and email marketers. Practical, hands-on training to empower your organization to make the most of its digital advertising investment.

Using your organization’s Google Ads (formerly AdWords) account, we teach you how to create, target and post ads on Google. Specifically designed for those expected to run ads, this course is taught from an advertising, marketing and communications perspective.

  • Create Google Ads

    Learn how to create Google ads – search vs shopping vs video vs display – and about the placements – content vs search vs discovery networks that are available to you (and how they are constantly evolving).

  • Target Google Ads

    Delve into Google’s myriad targeting options by establishing campaign hierarchies narrowed by geography, language, and ad or product groups or demographics or interests. Consider creating Audiences by linking your Google Ads and Google Analytics accounts and leverage Google’s retargeting features.

  • Post Google Ads

    Get ready to activate your campaign with final budget decisions, visible vs destination URLS, auto-tagging your URLS to track performance and conversions with conversion tags.

By the end of the course, your teams will:

Understand key Google Ads concepts such Campaigns vs Ad Groups or Products Groups, Ads, In-Stream vs Discoverability;

Easily navigate Google Ads campaign hierarchy: campaigns, Ad Groups (or Product Groups) and ads;

Understand how Google’s campaign objectives can impact pricing and budgeting;

Know how to use the Keyword Planner Tool to initiate keyword research, and organize the results to be actionable;

Differentiate what insights are available in Google Ads reporting vs Google Ads reports in your Google Analytics (and ensure that the accounts are indeed linked – a critical step you don’t want to miss).
