Business Ads Advice



New Member
Hi All

I trust all is well, I have a new business "issue" recently I got my marketing team to organise a PPC google ad campaign, I put about £2500 into it and all of a sudden (over a few days) the whole budget was gone & I saw no results, I spoke to another small business owner friend who said it was rather peculiar & told me something about "bots" where as I'm sure you know they just spammed clicked my ads & rinsed my budget, so he told me to get a ppcshield to prevent it, so I'm confident it will prevent this issue. But my question would be am I able to claim some sort of refund from Google, and is there any advice which could prevent this in the future?




Advertising should, in theory, attract the attention of potential customers and entice them to utilize your goods. The most effective kind of advertising is word-of-mouth. It possesses the desired traits of strong credibility, high levels of audience attention, and a warm welcome from the audience. You could start your ad by adding some important information, for example that you need a business license first and they can see this here how to get one.
