Using the AdWords Report Editor to Optimize Campaigns

Humans are visual creatures. A widely cited statistic states that 65% of the population are “visual learners”. No wonder most people would agree with the colloquial wisdom that “a picture is worth a thousand words.”
Google gets that, and that’s why there are a number of great ways to use the AdWords Report Editor for both data analysis and client communication.
The Report Editor is perhaps one of the most underused features in AdWords. Rolled out toward the end of 2015, this tool allows you to analyze data within your account in a more visual, and sometimes more granular, view than the main reporting section can produce. In fact, you can even create some reports that previously required an export into Excel.
PPC managers can use the Report Editor in a number of ways to look at performance and use those metrics to optimize campaigns. In this article, we’ll walk through accessing this tool and using it to create some practical, and fascinating, reports.

Building Trust with Analytics Reporting in the New Year

You’re hearing it everywhere: “New Year, New (insert new me, new marketing plan, or your own new thing you’re changing).”
But we’re not really new, are we? Just the same us, trying to be a little better than we were last year. Agencies are no different. While we may not be talking about total re-invention, there’s always an opportunity to become just a little bit better at what we’re already doing. For most agencies, that means retaining clients and making them happier. One really valuable way to do that is to deepen the bonds of trust.
An element of trust is inherent in any agency-client relationship. If a company is paying an agency to do work for them, that company is placing their brand and their marketing dollars into the agency’s hands. Ultimately, both parties establish a mutual trust and understanding with the intent of getting positive results.
As you move into the new year, one burning question in your agency may be, “How can we continue to build trust with our clients?” Communication is crucial to relationships that depend on trust and reporting is powerful and essential form of client communication.
Start the year by taking a good look at your current digital marketing reports and thinking about how you can improve them. Ultimately, you’ll build trust through transparency and by showing how your work relates directly to your client’s goals.
