Paid Search Budget Management

One of the greatest challenges you’re going to face in marketing management today is the act of balancing your SEM budget. You’ve put a tremendous amount of effort into PPC budget forecasting so that you could successfully secure the required funds, and so the absolute last thing you’d ever want is to allow it to be mismanaged due to avoidable circumstances like overspending or underspending! Unfortunately, having a poor sense of budget management for paid search can often lead you down the path of missed performance targets.

One of the main reasons why budgets tend to be such a hassle here is that search engines think about them in a different way than the average company does. Consider this: a company will usually set monthly, quarterly, or annual budget parameters – whereas Google Ads, conversely, will operate on daily budgets. This can be counteracted by setting a Profitability Goal (by looking at Average Order Value [AOV], Gross Margin Percentage [[Revenue – Cost of Goods Sold]]/Revenue = Gross Margin], and Cost per Acquisition), identifying your Keyword Themes by intent, and analyzing your past performance.
