Last Updated On : 2018 Dec. 04

In this series of industry-specific Adwords practices, today we will discuss how to create and manage a successful AdWords campaign for Mobile repair services which are targeting new customers.

Is Investing in AdWords a good choice for Mobile repair services

Over a period, I've heard very contradicting statement on the success of AdWords from different Mobile Repair services. For some, AdWords is a primary source of business, and for others, it doesn’t work at all.

In my opinion, AdWords for Mobile repair services is one field that is considered to be in high demand, despite being a very niche area. AdWords has given a promising business in this particular area, but it is a little tricky to be successful. Not a lot of people book the service online and prefer to go to the center directly to get their phone serviced. However, This does not mean online ads are not useful, They definitely help you influence the customer.

If you fall into this category and still haven’t been able to achieve success, it may be because your ads or landing page are not optimized and you are practically missing out on a lot of potential customers. It is crucial to use this tool efficiently or else it may end up costing you.

So without further ado, let’s begin with the basics and the best industry practices in AdWords for Mobile Repair.

Right PPC Keywords for Mobile Repairs

Choosing right keywords for your AdWords campaign can be a challenging task. It does come with confusing questions like, should you go for long tail keywords for more visibility or more mainstream keywords with the high competition? The key here is to strike a balance between the two. You should target both long tail keywords as well as short tail keywords. It will help you get the most out of your campaign. There are 4 major practices for Mobile Repairs to keep in mind:

Note: Avoid using one-word keywords which are highly searched for, as these search terms aren’t very informative about the kind of services you are offering for your prospect.

For example, if you use Battery replacement as a keyword for Mobile Battery replacement, your ads can be triggered for search terms like, Battery replacement (for other devices) or Battery replacement method online or How to do battery replacement, etc. which are not even close to what you want to target. Therefore carefully choosing the keywords is very important.

AdNabu takes care of this from the very beginning itself. It creates the structure of the campaign such that each keyword type has 3 different AdGroup (one for each match type) ensuring that you target the right keyword for the right search term.

Advantage of using Broad Match Modifier over Broad match

Broad match modifier (a.k.a BMM) is a variation of Broad match. Broad match triggers ads for all searches around the keyword, keyword idea, synonyms, grammatical forms as well as related words, etc. BMM gives you much more control over the search terms for which your ads will be a trigger. It excludes synonyms but allows variations. For Example, If you target Broad match-type for keyword Mobile Repair, it might trigger for a search term like Mobile which may or may not be relevant for you. Instead, BMM will ensure that the word Mobile and Repair are present in the search. AdNabu automatically creates campaigns which use BMM instead of Broad match.

Best Negative Keywords for Mobile Repair

You cannot ignore the importance of negative keywords, especially when each click costs a fortune. Though accumulating Negative Keyword is an ongoing process, but to begin with, below are a  few points to consider.  

What is a good landing page for you?

A landing page should use numerous parts like trust badges, result-oriented headlines, explainer videos, testimonials, etc. Such landing web pages are aimed at driving visitors to take a worthy action.  Since every click will cost you a fortune, there’s no room for error when designing a landing page for your business. Below are some Do’s and Don't to follow:
