How To Set Up Your First Search Campaign in Express Mode

How To Set Up Your First Search Campaign in Express Mode

Before you start…

If you’re getting started with Google Ads for the first time, it can be daunting to know how to get your account set up properly, so we’re here to walk you through the first stage after you create your account. This article will show you exactly how to build your first campaign in express mode.

Adwords Express is a very basic Google Ads service that is designed for advertisers who prefer a very simplified and streamlined account setup and are not concerned with working with more refined data or applying more technical settings associated with a traditional Google Ads account. If you’d prefer a more robust campaign setup, we suggest checking out our article on setting up campaigns in expert mode.

Take a moment to consider a few things…

When it comes to creating your first campaign in Google Ads, take a moment to consider a few things…

Firstly, consider the business and the different products/services you offer. A great place to start is to look at your site’s navigation and see the different offerings listed under ‘products’ or ‘services’ (or whatever is relevant to your business). These products or services would very likely be a good starting place when determining your campaign structure (i.e. one campaign for every service or for every product category).

Next, consider how much you want to spend per campaign. Google Ads runs to daily budgets, so if you work to a monthly spend, divide that number by 30.4 (average number of days in a month) to get your daily budget.

Lastly, you will need to think about exactly which locations people should be in to see your ads. Using Google Ads, you’ll have the ability to target as broad as full countries, down to cities, postcodes, and even custom radius’s around a particular area. If your business serves an international market, you may want to have campaigns to individually target these locations in their own language as well. If you have a local audience, radius and postcode targeting may be a better fit for your needs.

And that's it!
