A big part of my job at Rebar is helping business owners implement the strategies and ideas in Duct Tape Marketing. In order to do that I am always on the look out for new tools to help implement and (when appropriate) automate your marketing activities.
I think WordWatch provides the perfect type service for small businesses to outsource – managing bid amounts for AdWords campaigns. The purpose of WordWatch is to save you time and money while getting you more clicks and conversions on your AdWords campaigns.
WordWatch’s algorithm-based software works constantly to make sure your keywords are at the optimal bid price for the most traffic. This is perfect work (repetitive, calculation based) for a computer and exactly the type of thing you don’t have time to manage day in and day out.
As with any marketing tactic, you should create a sound marketing strategy by identifying your ideal customer, defining your core message, and gain an understanding of what triggers people to seek out your products and services before jumping in pay per click (PPC) advertising. But once you do, using a tool like WordWatch will help you make sure you are getting the biggest bang for your PPC buck.
