Pimp Your Google AdWords Ads

When you’re searching on Google and get a page full of ads and search results, which do you click?  For me, it’s going to be the one that stands out.  Just like at a dealership: When you’re looking for a new car, which one catches your eye first?  Why, the one with the hot paint job, cool rims, and fuzzy dice, of course! The one that stands out and says, “Pick me!”

So, how can you pimp out your AdWords Ads?  How do you make them stand out in a never ending sea of words and text?

Ad Extensions.

Like slapping spinning rims, flames, and fuzzy seats onto your car, Google AdWords Ad Extensions can breathe new life into your campaigns and make your ads more attractive, giving them the “Pick me” factor.

What exactly ARE Ad Extensions?

Extensions are additional useful information added to your Adwords ads that can display your location, phone number, product offerings, additional page links, and even showcase your social media prowess.
