In this video, I’m gonna talk about the number one AdWords mistake. Hi, I’m Travis and I’ve built a multi-million dollar revenue company on the backbone of AdWords plus I’ve helped consult with a lot of different people on helping them turn their e-commerce business and their AdWords into something that’s actually profitable for them. So I’ve seen a lot of different people and I’ve seen a lot of different mistakes that people make in by far the number one biggest mistake I see over and over again is people that set up their AdWords and never properly review it now it’s a little bit it can be complicated process if you let it be to review your AdWords but it’s very simple in principle and I’d say there’s two main parts to reviewing your AdWords the first part is looking at which ones are successful and adjusting the bid and it can be a little bit more detailed if you want to get into it you basically want to adjust the bid only on ones that there’s room to adjust the bid in and I’ll talk about in a separate video exactly how to do this but you want to basically go in there and adjust the bid accordingly if it’s not successful lower the bid until it is very simple in theory but a lot of people just don’t take the time to do it.
I will be talking about how to review videos and eventually I’ll come out with a video and I’ll link it up here the next part about reviewing your AdWords is actually going in and finding negative keywords and I will definitely do a video if I haven’t already if I have already I’ll put a link up here on how to find negative keywords (more…)

Hey everybody I have some new news about performance nut butter the company I just launched obviously if you’ve been following this for a little while I did it as a Kickstarter first now it’s an Amazon FBA product I’ve got good news I’ve got bad news I’ve got everything in between. So let’s start off with some of the good news if this is your first time watching you might not know but inventory is flying off the shelves I my first production run fly 2500 units and I’m about sold out oh I will be sold out on probably Saturday. So if you are looking to get a box performance nut butter Ford sells out and click up here click this link to get it on Amazon and if you buy it please leave that five-star review it’s hugely important but anyways let’s get to the the point of this blog and that’s to update you and give you some little lesson learned.

Don’t make this AdWords mistake before you start Adwords make sure you watch this video. So you can avoid this AdWords mistake hi I’m Travis and I built a multi-million dollar revenue ecommerce business using Adwords and I’ve helped a lot of people do the same thing and I see people making the same mistakes over and over again and I want to make sure you avoid that. So the number one mistake I see people making over and over again I want to make sure you do not make is bidding on the wrong keywords people bid on keywords where they the people searching them have no buying net they bid on keywords that are never gonna yield them sales because they’re too general they’re too broad. So what’s an example of this? So I’ve used this example before but I’m gonna use it again because it’s just I think it solidifies it. So much but if I would never bid on for instance dance clothing that’s the company one of the companies I have is a dance clothing company I would never bid on the search term dance clothing because it’s just too broad I wouldn’t I might bid on dance show it’s probably not like that’s a little bit better I might bid on ivory dance shorts I probably would bid on ivory Dance shorts but the best case scenario would be high waste ivory dance shorts another example using the new company I just launched is it’s a nut butter company it’s not just any kind of nut butter company. So I wouldn’t bid necessarily on nut butter because it’s too general too broad what I might bid on is macadamia nut butter or keto paleo friendly nut butter things like that.
In this video we’re gonna talk about the number one Adwords success secret my name is Travis and I’ve had a lot of success with Adwords in fact I built a multi-million dollar revenue company based on Adwords and I’ve helped people over and over again start their own Adwords and I see over and over again the same thing that leads to success and it’s not surprising it’s number one is picking good keywords but what kind of keywords should you be picking you should be picking keywords to bid on that have by intent now my assumption in this video is that you’re selling some kind of a product or a service and if you’re doing that you want to make sure the keywords that you’re bidding on are things people are typing in when they’re about to purchase an item. So let me give you an example of a good keyword in a bad keyword.
Let’s solve a bad keyword a bad keyword might be dance shorts and this is in this is the business one of the businesses I started the dance clothing business. So dance shorts it seems on the surface like a good keyword and it’s alright it’s not the worst keyword out there but let’s put it in perspective when someone is searching for dance shorts they’re not necessarily ready to buy yet on the flip side if someone is searching for ivory dance shorts they’re much more likely interested in purchasing because they’re looking for a specific color they already know what they want when they’re just looking for dance shorts they might not be ready to buy yet they’re still in the research phase you want to hit people with Adwords when they’re ready to buy now that’s not the only success secret (more…)
