When we first talk with new companies, they always ask how we plan to onboard their account. So, here’s how we do it.
STEP 1: INFO SESSION
AK Inbound prides itself on a thoroughly vetted and established methodology that drives continuous results. When we take on a PPC management account, we start with requesting the client to hop on a phone call for an in-depth info session. Not only covering all the necessary info needed for successful PPC management but also a full understanding of your business and its current market position. We are more than just PPC managers, we are digital solutions experts who leverage over ten years of experience to offer businesses the best.
STEP 2: CURRENT ACCOUNT ANALYSIS
We begin by evaluating the current health of the PPC account we are managing. Through years of analyzing accounts, AK Inbound has designed a system for PPC account audit. This audit helps illuminate light on the low hanging fruit currently available, as well as provide insight on potential red flags. We go into as much detail as possible to learn as much as we can from past performance, which provides benchmark KPIs that we use as a baseline.
STEP 3: CAMPAIGN LAUNCH MEETING
Every new client receives a launch meeting that gives a chance for thier full team to review our strategy, timeline, and walk through each step of the setup process.
Step 4: Keyword Research
If we are running a search campaign, our next step is to conduct keyword research (structured around any missing opportunities found when conducting our audit). We modify our proposed new keyword list down into various groups, which is submitted back to the client for approval before deploying the keywords into the currently running campaign.
Step 5: Account Setup/Restructuring
These steps are comprised of optimizing all the numerous account settings, such as:
- Campaign setup

- Ad Copywriting & Testing setup

Step 10: Weekly Calls/Meetings Scheduled
We are in continuous communication with our clients about the current situation of their PPC campaigns. We schedule weekly (or monthly) calls/meetings to provide key status updates. The size of the campaign and budget will determine if a weekly check-in is required, a monthly check-in will do, or even in some cases bi-monthly check-ins.
