    Just 3 weeks ago, i used adwords for getting seo clients.

    Today i checked my adwords account.

    I found below status

    clicks:384
    Impression:336,361
    Bill:$17.09

    Convert to client:0

    Do you think is this normal? or through adwords getting seo clients is easy?

    I get 1 order on 100 visitors, but I think that's not bad since my services are not $5

    First of all, based on the information you gave you can't really say if it's 'normal'. If you got 384clicks mainly from the keyword "free seo" and you provide a paid service, then you can expect to have 0 conversions.

    Based on the fact you paid around $0,04 per click, which is pretty low for adwords, especially for SEO related keywords, I think (assuming you've chosen relevant seo keywords) that your ads are shown at the very bottom or not even on the first page of google. If that is the case, then it's normal to have a much lower conversion rate like what you're experiencing!

    how do you managed to just pay 17$ for 384 clicks?

    also, i advise many seo companys for large cash, that the customer who searches for a SEO service, just takes the #1spot. i mean its obvious. :D

    no, all keywords are related to my paid service. Obviously if any website is in top 10 for seo related keywords, why they will go for adwords. websites which are not in top 10, they go for adwords.

    I think you answered it, you checked your account once in 3 weeks.
    Do some Keyword Diagnosis, preview them in actual searches, to see where you rank, do Competition Analysis.

    running adwords campaign for getting SEO clients is good idea but the data you provided is not looking normal. because seo keywords are much competitive & not possible to get 384 click without any conversions.what type of campaign you have selected on adwords search campaign or display campaign?
    i would like to suggest you to do first keyword & completion research then finalize your ad copy & geography & start adwords search campaign.

    Based on your CTR (Clicks/Impr.) your ads are most likely showing on Display network. Display network traffic tends to have lower conversion rates compared to Search network traffic because it's purpose is somewhat different.

    Go for search network only and see what happens.

    Well.. first I wouldn't use the content network if you really want your website to convert... with such a low CTR, I doubt you are using the search network. Many people cheat adsense, so many of the clicks you are getting could be even fake and they won't convert, plain and simple.

    What country are you targeting also? This has a huge impact on your convertion rate. People from the United States
    tend to convert better than people from the Dominican Republic, India, or whatever, specially when ordering something like SEO.

    Also, Are you sure you have a good landing page setup? Maybe you pointed to the wrong payment link?
    Your sales page is not convicing enough? Bad colors choice? There are many factors to conlcude a convertion rate.

    Last but not least, convertions don't come in really 1:100... many times you will get 100 clicks without sales, and in the next 10 clicks, you will get 3 sales, VOILAH!

    I honestly think the amount of clicks and money spent is not really enough data to make a call.

    Seems you use "broad match" keywords and actually search terms may be very different from your keywords.

    You get clicks from less cheaper and less converted keywords (targeted location also important)

    I have no idea that how much and how deep you done your research work for your business. I am trying to give you some information, hope it can help you.
    1) You need to do adjust your on page according to CRO (conversation rate optimization). In CRO you have to work on couple of things. some couple of main points are here
    a- "3 second message" with in 3 second visitor know what is exactly your website purpose...
    b- "order form/customer form 3 times" mean customer form should be 3 times in the page.
    c- "be in touch with your visitors" mean News letter. Give them a free download like "google latest June 2013 ranking tips". In this way you will easily get your visitors email address and send them news letter on weekly or 15 days basis. you cant imagine how much it will help you to get customers.....
    d- "Live chat option" mean when a visitor come to your website , you need to engage them via live chat option, in this way you can easily convert your visitor in to your customers.
    e- "social network option" mean user can easily use social network sharing option any place from your website

    believe it or not. If you just follow these simple steps in your website. you can see the big change. I just defined some CRO points. The war is just not end by it. you have to make proper website according to latest research. If you have more question you can pm me.

    Best of luck!!!

    Nice Suggestion, I would add one more point in this.
    Make an offer or a make a special local campaign on your website for the region you are targeting on your adword campaign.

    Tip: Maintain your Quality Score at the best level that can help you to gain more traffic by spending less $$
