Sure you can manage Google AdWords yourself, but do really want to? Do you have the time to really manage all of your pay-per-click (PPC) advertising campaigns as closely and as carefully as you would like to? Are you content with how they are performing and not really looking to save both your time and advertising dollars? If you answered “yes” to that last question, please just send me a check for $10,000 since you don’t mind just throwing money away.
The confidentiality of our clients is important so I am not revealing any names here, but I would like to share some actual numbers that we have seen here at JumpFly as a result of our efforts. I looked at some PPC advertising data samples from the first quarter of 2008 and compared them to the first quarter of 2009. Sure, I can make these numbers up, but it’s just much easier to show you the real numbers as they truthfully exist.
JumpFly Client #1
1st Quarter 2008 – 139 conversions at $351.55 each with a total spend of approx. $49,000.
1st Quarter 2009 – 295 conversions at $125.51 each with a total spend of approx. $37,000.
Yes, they spent about $12,000 dollars LESS but more than DOUBLED their number of conversions. True story.
JumpFly Client #2
1st Quarter 2008 – 205 conversions at $62.82 each with a total spend of approx. $21,000.
1st Quarter 2009 – 301 conversions at $32.47 each with a total spend of approx. $10,000.
Yes, they spent about $11,000 dollars LESS but increased conversions by nearly 100 more. True story.
JumpFly Client #3
1st Quarter 2008 – 252 conversions at $9.87 each with a total spend of approx. $2,500.
1st Quarter 2009 – 1,859 conversions at $5.91 each with a total spend of approx. $11,000.
Yes, the spend is greatly increased as we took their business to a whole new level, while bringing their conversion costs down. Huge sales growth with conversions growing over 1,500 compared to the same time period a year earlier. True story.
JumpFly Client #4
1st Quarter 2008 – 4,027 conversions at $9.04 each with a total spend of approx. $36,000.
1st Quarter 2009 – 5,204 conversions at $6.36 each with a total spend of approx. $33,000.
Yes, they spent about $3,000 LESS while growing conversions over 1,000 at a lower cost. True story.
And the numbers above don’t take into the account the time and worry these business owners took off their shoulders by outsourcing their PPC management.
I’m not saying that professional PPC management will produce the same results for every company, but very positive results certainly can come from having a professional pay per click management company like JumpFly assisting you along the way. During these tight economic times, can you afford not to?
