p.1 #1 · Google Adwords


I'm sure we all get these calls from time to time...I Just got a call from a company offering to do all the grunt work for Google Adwords and get me on the front page of the Google Ads for the top search keywords in my area.

I know these companies are almost never any good, but I still have a question.

Those that have done Google Adwords either on your own or through a company and have had success getting their add on the front page, does it actually give any ROI? I know that personally I don't pay attention to any of the ads on the side and top of the page but rather go straight to the listed search results.

Thoughts?

**I did a search on this topic and couldn't find much, apologies if it has been discussed to death**

I do use Google AdWords. Obviously I would prefer to be 100% referral based, and not padding the pockets of unknown Google shareholders, BUT, it earns me roughly $10 in bookings for every $1 I spend, although that benefit seems to taper off quite a bit after spending $300 month, but is still a benefit. I do my Google AdWords work myself, and immediately hang up on anyone calling me about it, trying to sell their consultation services for it.

I just got that call.
They made it seem like they were affiliated with Google. Initially, upon first talking with them, they came off as if they were a prospective client looking for wedding coverage.

Why do you need someone to do it for you? Google pretty much makes it so easy for you to do it yourself. It is like bidding something on ebay.

SCAM and they tell every photographer the same scripted lines. We're picking you and singling you out because of your photography, blah, blah , blah and other nonsense.

Brother, why the resentment about spending money and helping others build wealth if for every $1 you spend you're getting $10 back? That's a one thousand per cent return on your investment. That sounds like everyone benefits to me.
