Results BEFORE working with the PPC agency Penguin-team
Only one Search Campaign worked in a Google Ads account:
Results from September 19 to October 13:
- conversions — 4;
- cost per conversion — $571.54;
- conversion rate — 1.15%;
- cost per click — $ 6.59.
In Analytics, conversions were not tracked:
The first thing we did was set up conversion tracking for the thank you page after filling out the application and for clicking on the button after filling out the form.
The second is to clean up the client’s account. Many groups and keys have been added to the running campaign. These groups are ineffective. In order to fix the situation, and further manage automatic bidding strategies, it was necessary to break everything down into campaigns. Specialists of the PPC agency Penguin-team created and structured 4 separate campaigns:
- on competitors;
- for those who are looking for how to start a tax business;
- with the keywords «soft»;
- with all other keys.
The third is we created a Branded Search Campaign.
Gradually, for each campaign, we began to apply an automatic strategy — the Target CPA.

After the work was done, we got the following results (from October 14 to November 30):
- conversions — 373;

- conversion rate — 9.82%;
- cost per click — $ 3.12.
