Ready to take your PPC advertising efforts to the next level? Hiring a Google Ads agency can make a world of difference for your in-house marketing team.
In this guide to Google Ads agencies, we'll explain everything you need to know about these PPC-focused digital marketing companies.
What is a Google Ads Agency?
Before we get ahead of ourselves, let's make sure you have a clear understanding of what a Google Ads agency is and what a dedicated account manager does.
Put simply, a Google Ads agency is a digital marketing company that specializes in pay-per-click advertising (PPC for short) on Google. Their primary function is to manage your Google Ads account and assist your marketing team with its PPC efforts, including strategy development, campaign management, and reporting.
In today's growing digital marketing environment, your PPC marketing efforts can include:
Paid Search Ads
Paid search ads are the foundation of any solid digital marketing strategy. In this lucrative form of internet advertising, sponsored links appear alongside organically-ranking links on a search engine results page.
Like all PPC ads, the advertiser is only charged when the user clicks the link, not when the ad is displayed.
A Google Ads agency will do all the heavy lifting for your marketing team. They'll develop and test ads, manage your bids, oversee your campaigns, and track the results of your marketing efforts.
Google Shopping Ads
In today's world of online shopping, Google Shopping Ads are more lucrative than ever. With the help of a PPC agency, you can develop Google Shopping campaigns that ensure your products appear on relevant searches.
PPC Masterminds can help with every aspect of your Google Shopping campaigns, from selecting the most effective product assortment to developing a strong bidding strategy that'll beat out the competition.
The Gooogle Display Network reaches a staggering 90% of Internet users worldwide. These visual advertisements appear as banners, sidebars, and pop-ups on millions of websites, news pages, and blogs worldwide.
Our experienced team of designers and copywriters will help you create visually-engaging ads, while our PPC experts will help craft a successful paid media strategy.
Retargeting & Remarketing
Retargeting (also known as remarketing) is an advertising strategy that focuses on highly relevant traffic. Through cookies and complex algorithms, Google will show your visual or text ads to customers who have already interacted with your business.
Working alongside your marketing team, we'll develop a custom strategy to help your business reconnect and ultimately convert these lucrative users.
Through targeted ad copy and intentional display ad designs, we'll increase your conversion rates and ROI without wasting a cent.

How do I choose a Google Ads agency?
Finding the right digital marketing agency can make all the difference for your business. Below, we've listed key qualities to look for in an agency and highlighted why PPC Masterminds is the safe choice for your business.
Specializes in Google Ads (Previously called Google Adwords)
Every marketing agency has a slightly different focus. When it comes to Google Ads, you'll want to stick with a PPC agency that's experienced. Steer clear of firms that focus on social media or search engine optimization, as they won't be as experienced with Google Ads' comprehensive platform.
The best PPC agencies are certified Google Partners, meaning they've been recognized as one of the platform's most trusted agencies for their skills, expertise, and successful track record.
To prove we're serious about search advertising, PPC Masterminds put our specialty right in our name.

For over eight years, we've helped businesses of all sizes increase sales and attract more leads on their own terms.
Whether it's sharing client testimonials or explaining pricing plans, a good agency offers full transparency. Before your business begins working with an agency, you should have a clear understanding of what they'll be charging and what services you'll be receiving in return. Be sure to establish clear benchmarks and KPIs so both parties can know if you're on track to meet your marketing goals.
PPC Masterminds offers our clients real-time reports so they can know exactly how their ads are performing and where their marketing dollars are being spent. Our goal is to feel like an extension of your in-house marketing team. Together, we'll make the most out of every paid advertising campaign while letting you focus on business growth.
