Managing your time and your Google Ads account

When you advertise with Google Ads, you're making a financial investment in your business. But it takes more than just money to see success. Depending on your time and your budget, the following three options can help you create an effective campaign.

Manage Google Ads on your own

It's vital that you invest time to regularly check in on your Google Ads account and make adjustments until you're satisfied with your return on investment.

Plan on signing in to your Google Ads account at least once each week. How much time you'll spend there varies, but budget between 30 minutes to an hour per week to check on how your ads and keywords are doing, and make any adjustments to boost performance.
