    Hi everyone, after reading a ton of Perry Marshall guides, videos, and his book (didnt finish the entire thing, but read enough lol), I think I am ready for Adwords. So to not further procrastinate, I decided to give myself 3 days to set a small campaign (about 5 kw), and see what happens. Here's 2 questions I have:

    - I just want to know if anyone can recommend any good kw research advice? I already ready the 2012 kw research thread on here (I don't have scrapebox though, I have MS).

    - I am deciding on whether to set my landing page as the homepage, or the free product page I already setup like a squeeze page? I've been analyzing my competition, and it seems all of them have their ads going to their homepage.


    I also have:

    - A nice website with all the terms and conditions outlined (Not weight loss/diet).
    - No pop ups on my landing page and alot of ways for people to opt in
    - Information the person is looking for.
    - A good solid product.
    - Anayltics setup, but when I make my adwords account I will also put conversion tracking on the page I have setup.

    I plan on:

    Day 1

    Doing the proper kw research, and narrowing down 2 (5) kw
    Write 50 ads (10 for each kw)


    Day 2
    Decide on what ads to go with (thats why I will write 10 for each kw)


    Day 3

    Setup adwords and get a campaign started with adwords editor

    Done

    Good kw tool is Adwords Keyword Tool, it's really straight forward, you can find it in Tools and Analysis tab.

    It's better to set product page as the landing page but you can always test and see what converts better.

    You could write 2 ads for start and just see which one's better. Rotate them for some 200 clicks (or less if you can decide easy) and see which one did better. Then delete the loser and add one more, rinse and repeat. Make sure your Ads delivery is set to Rotate evenly.

    Why only 2-5 kws?

    If you're creating only one campaign it might be easier to use web interface.

    You don't need 3 days for that, you'll see :) Just go ahead and start doing it.

    Thanks for insights everyone. Yeah, I think I will go with the Homepage as the landing page since the product is right there. I just will make sure to remove the popup for that page, and have it show up on other pages.

    As for 5 kw, cause of my budget. I would say 7-10, but I dont want my go over $300-400 over budget. I chose adwords editor cause I can import my excel files in it, instead of making them one by one.

    Any other advice/tips? Thanks.

    Why write 50 ads? Seems dumb. How about 2 ads, one per keyword?

    This is an SEO forum, btw. Ad-words are the opposite of SEO, and you might get hazed for even talking about it. Some people consider Google "the enemy", and ad-words are the white flag of surrender.

    No, 50 to brainstorm, and the final two I like for each kw, I will decide. And no one is going to haze for adwords, this site is about making money via im, not strictly just seo.

    Well, you can always rotate keywords and see which ones perform better if you're limited by budget. Just keep in mind that campaign daily budget is #1 place to keep your spend under control, not the number of keywords.

    And remember to bid high when you start, it will give you better Avg. position, which should lead to better CTR and that should give your kws better Quality Score resulting in lower Avg. CPC.
    Easy :)
