I chose to read this book because, while I currently am not doing any advertising on the Internet, I would like to start. I am sure I am not alone, so all of you folks out there like me who would like to have their own business but don’t have a clue how to advertise it and certainly have no desire to lose our shirts.

The book is written as close to layman’s terms as you can get. Yes, there are new terms you may have to learn to play the game, but that’s par the course with anything you do. No wor

I won this book in a goodreads drawing.

A wonderful book about how to shape your web advertising to get clicks, and bring in business. Lots of it,of course, is common sense, and the result of trial and error by the author, but it seems like it would do wonders for those trying to advertise on the web.

To me Adwords is just like a big stock market, but instead of Stocks you buy Keywords. Everything I knew about Marketing previous to getting involved in SEM, was based on last semester of school. I took a Marketing class as a requirement for my Business Minor andthought it was silly and not really applicable to the real world. After four years of building software in a software development group I have moved over to the dark side. Yes, instead of worrying about user experience, and how well the ...more

Perry Marshall is definitely at the cutting edge of Google adwords management. Having worked in the industry for over 10 years, Perry's book has been like a bible to me.

Everything covered from A-Z in adwords. All thoroughly explained, easy reference point should you want to be starting something new.

Having trained a team of adwords managers in a large Australian Online Marketing company the foundations for all my training sessions were based on learnings from Perry.

Really valuable book... I'm looking forward to running some great Google Adwords campaigns in the near-future!
Mar 17, 2015 rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
Handig handboek rond AdWords. Gezien AdWords campagnes meer kunnen kosten als de CTR slecht is, is het zeker aangeraden om het meteen goed te doen. Perry Marshall geeft een degelijke inleiding en toont werkbare en goed te volgen strategieën om goed te scoren met AdWords.
(Nota: De mails die je krijgt van Perry als je daar op inschrijft zijn van een heel wat lager niveau...)

This one stands out from the pack because it focuses intently on getting results. Instead of "this is how to use this one fuction in AdWords" you'll get "this is how to get VALUE out of the time you spend tinkering with AdWords." That constant attention to real life results sets it apart from other guides like it.

The book gives you exactly what the title says. The only problem is the excessive verbiage makes you wish there was more editorial discretion. I think the book could have been trimmed by a third. The information is good though, relevant and smack up to date.

Even though this book covers only basics of Adwords, it actually highlights a very important and simple strategy how to manage your accounts without losing money and potential web traffic. A good read for those who starts working with Search or those who wants to recall basic tips and tricks.

I have not spent a dime on Yellow Page advertising for at least five or six years after having an almost $30K annual expense with them and feeling totally abused.I have been using Google Adwords as my primary advertising program for several years for my business and feeling like I was doing pretty well with it. If I was doing well, the well just got much deeper!

A thoroughly recommend this book to any sole trader or big business who uses Google Adwords to advertise their prodicts or services. I had been using Google Adwords for about 2 years before I bought this book - just had the bare minimum on there and just let it tick along and I did get clients from it. But then when a local organisation started running workshops for fellow hypnotherapists on how to optimise their google adwords campaign (and I couldn't make it), I thought I had better buy a book ...more
An excellent resource to understanding and taking up the reins of Google AdWords marketing. So much information is provided in an easy to read format. The techniques described seem like they would serve any business well. There were one too many shameless plugs for Perry Marshall's paid materials, but the authors are sales experts, so what can you expect? Too bad they didn't catch the website typo on the very first preface page that prevents book purchasers from accessing the paid materials webs ...more

After following the advice contained in this book, I more than tripled the conversion rate on an Adwords campaign that had been running for a while and dropped our cost per lead by 50%. Reading this book won't make you a master of Adwords, but it is a solid foundation on which to base your campaigns.
Robin Duong
A very general guide that is good for beginners bit not enough in-depth information about any one particular topic. I wish there was more information on how to best organize and lay out AdWords ad groups and campaigns. Also, the author repeatedly and blatantly advertises his website and the resources that are available on it, but those resources don't prove to be very helpful.

“Relevance, Clarity, and Accuracy “Relevance” and “accuracy” refer to how well your ad copy matches what’s on your landing page. “Clarity” covers a wider variety of sins you’ll need to avoid, including:          Missing lines of text          Excessive spacing          “Extremely bad grammar” (This is Google’s exact wording, implying that they’ll allow a modicum of imperfect grammar.)          Generic call-to-action phrases (such as “click here” or “+1”).          Using characters for anything other than their intended or usual meaning. For example, the greater-than “>” symbol is fine if you’re using it to indicate that something actually is greater than something else. But you can’t use it as an arrow.          Words in all-capitals          Bad spelling          Repetition. For example, “Buy! Buy! Buy!” would be flagged as unacceptable. Follow the above guidelines when you build your ads and you’ll be fine 99 percent of the time. Still, be sure and visit the AdWords Policy Center page and review their directions.
