In the ever-evolving landscape of digital marketing, the power of a well-executed Google Ads strategy cannot be overstated. As we navigate through the tough climate of 2023, it’s with great pride and enthusiasm that we reflect on a year marked by unparalleled success in Google Ads PPC management at Browndog.

In a world where online visibility is paramount, our team has not only met but exceeded the expectations of our diverse client base, seeing tangible results through Google Ads.

The journey of a click is so much more than the instant result relayed by search engines. It’s a carefully curated combination of data-driven insights, strategy borne from decades of experience, and a deep understanding of our clients’ unique needs.

As we take you through a few of our 2023 successes, we also encourage any business looking not just for a service provider, but a strategic partner in navigating the complexities of Google Ads, to get in touch for a free audit.

What have we achieved?

It’s not lost on us that each year, agencies need to find new ways of educating and creating awareness with new and existing clients about the benefits of a managed PPC service. As many of our clients have looked to tighten their marketing budgets, we’ve sought ways to bring added value and demonstrate how PPC should be seen not as a cost, but as an investment with excellent returns.

Throughout the year, we’ve continued to work with our longstanding clients and welcomed new businesses from a variety of industries, with varying budgets. It’s important to us that all of our clients understand, no matter what your budget, we’ll treat your pounds like they’re ours, and we won’t be happy unless we’re providing the best possible return on investment.

We’re pleased to share that across the Google Ads accounts that we manage, we’ve seen an average return on ad spend of 730%, effectively giving our clients back £7.30 for every £1 they spent with Google.

If you can indulge in our bragging, we’d love to share some of our (anonymised) success stories:

Client 1:
A new client joined us late this year with a highly successful PPC account, and gave us the opportunity to demonstrate our abilities, beginning in November. On our first Black Friday weekend working together, we delivered 162% more revenue from just a 73% uplift in spend, when compared to the previous year.

Moreover, on our first full month managing their account, we were able to beat their ‘best month ever’ and hit our target of £50k revenue from their combined Google Ads search and shopping strategy.

Client 2:
We’ve worked with this client for many years and we’re so pleased to have delivered a staggering return on investment. For every £1 spent on Google Ads, we delivered £13 in return.

We were able to deliver 43% more revenue from a 38% uplift in spend, increasing their ROAS from 1255% (2021-2022) to 1297%. Over the course of the year, we helped them to achieve record numbers, delivering £207,593 from a spend of just £16,004.

Client 3:
Another new client within the SAAS industry, who joined us late in 2022 saw 75% more enquiries with just a 50% increase in spend. Crucially, we were able to bring their cost per acquisition down from £62.23 to just £30.49 in 12 months.

Although the client has spent more (£19,625 this year compared to £10,018) than last year, they have reaped the rewards through a higher rate of enquiries and an overall reduction of more than 50% in their CPA.

Sharing our knowledge

We understand that not every client is able to outsource their PPC management. This is why we’ve spent the year sharing our best tips for managing your own account and maximising your spend.

We’ve gathered our best advice and compiled it into our Ultimate Guide to Improving Your Google Ads. This ongoing labour of love from our PPC expert Joshua Barr, will be regularly updated in our brand new Knowledge Base. In addition to sharing our best practice tips, Joshua is regularly sharing anecdotes, advice, and Google Ads news updates on his LinkedIn profile. If this is an area that interests you, give him a follow.

Sharing our knowledge and experience is something we’re passionate about, because we want our clients to get the most out of their ad spend and see a real return on investment during these times where every penny counts. If you think you could benefit from our PPC management, please read how we can skyrocket your PPC through effective management and get in touch for a free account audit.

Looking ahead

As we say goodbye to a remarkable year of client success, we look forward to the opportunities that 2024 will bring. We want to express our deep appreciation and gratitude to our valued clients, that have trusted us with their ad spend and driven us to achieve great results together.

We’d also like to acknowledge those considering partnering with us in the coming year; we’d love to welcome you and be sharing your success story this time next year!

We promise that our commitment to excellence, bold strategies and client-centric approach will continue into 2024 and we look forward to getting started after a short Christmas break from 22nd December to 2nd January 2024.
