How It Works
TOUCHLINE MARKETING HELPS BUSY BUSINESS OWNERS WITH THE COMPLEX AND TIME CONSUMING TASK OF MANAGING PAID SEARCH ADVERTISING ON THE GOOGLE ADWORDS PLATFORM
Each week, our team of paid search marketing experts completes a 25- point management checklist to optimize the account for quantity of calls or leads per month, cost-per-click (CPC), cost-per-acquisition (CPA), impressions, conversion rates, and return on ad spend (ROAS – eCommerce only). Our holistic approach to paid search focuses on the entire workflow for generating leads through paid search, from targeted ads to landing pages and remarketing. After an optimization period where campaign goals are reached and we have exhausted the reach on Google AdWords, we may suggest expanding to other paid search and social channels such as Bing, YouTube, and Facebook.

Paid Search Engine Marketing (PPC) FAQ
ANSWERS TO SOME OF THE QUESTIONS WE MOST OFTEN HEAR ABOUT OUR PPC MANAGEMENT FOR SMALL BUSINESS…
Once PPC on-boarding items/tasks can be completed, Touchline Marketing can begin active management of the client Google AdWords Account in as little as 5 business days.
Touchline Marketing adds the client Google Adwords account to their Touchline PPC Client Center (Google MCC).
The most common metrics used to define success criteria for Google AdWords management are:
- Cost Per Lead /OR/ What is the target Cost per Lead ($)?
- Number of Leads /or/ What is the target number of Leads per Month?
Google may, at its discretion, place any AdWords account “under review”. During this period (typically 1 to 3 business days), ads will not be eligible to run.
Google restricts and/or prohibits advertising of various products and services such as prescription drugs, firearms, counterfeit goods, etc. If Google deems a Client’s product or service to fall within one of these categories, the use of Adwords may be severely restricted or completely prohibited.
We recommend conducting a Market Analysis to see if your company, product, or service is a good fit for paid search marketing. In some cases, the costs of advertising through a specific digital channel may not make sense. It’s best to have experienced professionals make recommendations before so you don’t make expensive mistakes on your own.
