As a kid who was fascinated with the magic store, it’s kind of surprising that I still don’t know how magicians do certain tricks. But it’s probably because as an adult, I’ve spent most of my time trying to master one magic ...
Oh my! That is quite a confession! Image via Shutterstock. I have a confession to make. It’s a hard one, so breathe deep with me and please be kind. I am not *hard swallow* a conversion optimizer. That’s a dangerous admission, and not just because CRO is big business. You see, while I’m not a conversion optimizer, I’m good at faking it. Really, really good.
If you’re a PPC strategist, your client’s campaigns live and die by the strength of the landing pages. If you drop the perfect paid audience on a page with no offer (or an unclear one), you’ll get a 0% conversion rate no matter how your ads perform. The problem is that as AdWords account managers, we can be pretty limited in our ability to change landing pages.
As a savvy marketer, it’s our sincere hope you never start a campaign without a dedicated landing page for sending your paid traffic to. But — as you know — the job isn’t over once a landing page is created. Your real opportunity is in understanding how your page performs. Beyond tracking standard performance measures like conversions, bounce rate, and landing page quality (L ...
When you hear ‘website popup’ in a marketing context, my bet is—as a discerning marketer—you all but cringe. Surely these boxes that jump up in the middle of a screen are for low-level marketers. They’re scammy, make you lose your train of thought, nobody likes them,…you’d never use ‘em. But can you really hate popups if they’re found to drive results? As heated as the debat ...
Hi, I’m Corey. Are you an idealistic marketer, like me? That is—do you plan your marketing campaigns by pretending technical limitations aren’t a thing and just map out the ideal experience you want for your prospects from first impression to final conversion? Like this: A photo of my actual campaign flow on the whiteboard. If your whiteboard looks this optimistic, read on.
An ex-Googler gives an inside look at how AdWords Quality Score works. Image via Shutterstock. As an Unbounce blog reader, you already know conversion rate optimization is a great way to drive more results from the money you’re already spending to acquire traffic to your site. So today I’d like to focus on another way to make more money from your marketing efforts; namely, ad optimization.
These days the average marketer has been cited to use anywhere from 12 to a whopping 31 tools to build the campaigns of their dreams, but making sure all of these different apps or tools work together like a well-oiled machine is often where things get messy. For example, you might generate leads via your landing pages, but — depending on your marketing stack and the connecti ...
Whether you’re an independent realtor or work at a real estate agency, you can gain a competitive advantage if you have owned digital properties to drive your paid and social traffic to. Owned properties — like landing pages — provide you more control in real estate versus relying on popular listing sites where the journey isn’t always clear, you can’t customize your call to ...

Your ad promoting beard oil might have the best copy, images and offer — but it will never convert well if it’s shown primarily to a female audience. The ad would be irrelevant, and you would receive a relevance score which reflects this.

Getting a new client always starts innocently enough. Initial talks go well. Everyone’s on board. But then you get full account access and start digging deeper… True story: I once worked with a client who was spending tens of thousands each month on PPC. Yet they had zero conversion tracking. The phone rang, sure. But no one knew why.
Before digging into your or your client’s AdWords account, you might need to do some tidying up first. Image via Shutterstock. When PPC agency ParaCore started working with a niche inspection company, they realized pretty quickly that before they could start optimizing this client’s AdWords account, they needed to do some necessary housekeeping.
You’re designing a landing page for your Real Estate client, and you turn to “best practice” advice articles to help guide the way. But there’s a nagging voice at the back of your mind: Does this “best practice” advice apply indiscriminately to my industry? Does this author really know anything about my audience at all? “Best practices” become “better practices” when the ...
As a travel marketer or agency marketer servicing the travel industry, you have a tricky gig. You need to convince your prospects to spend thousands of dollars and precious vacation time. Meanwhile, your prospects are increasingly wary of the legitimacy of your offers (thanks a lot, Fyre Fest). Here’s to hoping your vacation is memorable, but not in a meme-worthy kind of way.
A good marketer is like a doomsday prepper (bear with me here…) Instead of preparing for a global cataclysm, learning about water storage and building bunkers, they’re constantly on the lookout for ways they can proof their marketing for, or get ahead of, inevitable and dramatic changes to the marketing landscape. Frequent and mysterious algorithm changes. New ad platform features.
