holberg design – Branding. Personified.

Google, the worlds most powerful search tool is also the most used “local” search tool on the web. We live and work in a world where people everywhere, from central PA, to your next door neighbor, to businesses in China, are searching for your business… and having your site ready to utilize the power of Google is a must. The impact of Google AdWords has changed the landscape of advertising forever. Knowing how to tap that power is key to developing the right Google strategy for you.

Google AdWords

I’m sure you’ve done a Google search and have noticed a listing at the top or right that has a small “Ad” tag beside it. This is AdWords, Google’s online advertising program. Through search results, Google AdWords lets you reach new customers and grow your business. And holberg design is here to help you manage the complexities of this powerhouse advertising program!

Using AdWords, you can reach people as they search for words or phrases – keywords – or browse websites with themes related to your business. Your ad can appear on Google and its partner websites. With cost-per-click (CPC) bidding, you’re charged only when someone clicks your ad.

  • Choose where your ad appears, set a budget you’re comfortable with, and measure the impact of your ad.
  • There’s no minimum spending commitment. You can pause or stop anytime.

There are a host of benefits with Google AdWords that sets this platform apart from other kinds of advertising. Using AdWords, you can:

  • Reach people at the precise moment they’re searching for what you offer.
  • Your ad is displayed to people who are already searching for the kinds of products and services you offer. So those people are more likely to take action.
  • You can choose where your ad appears — on which specific websites and in which geographical areas (states, towns, or even neighborhoods).
  • The Google Display Network alone reaches 80% of Internet users in the US.

Control your budget.

  • With cost-per-click (CPC) bidding, you’re charged only when someone clicks your ad, not when your ad appears. There are a variety of bidding options you can choose from.
  • You decide how much or little you want to spend monthly, and you’ll never be charged more than that amount.
  • There’s no minimum spending commitment.

See exactly what’s working in your ad, and build on it.

  • View a report of how your ad is doing – see how many new customers connect to your business from your ad, where they’re coming from, and more.
  • Use AdWords tools to edit and improve your ad, and increase the number of potential customers who contact your business.

Here’s an example … Let’s say you run a bicycle repair shop near York, PA. Set your ad to appear to customers in just that location, and when someone living or visiting there searches Google for “bike repair near York PA,” they could see your ad and click it to connect to your business.

 It’s a simple concept … But incredibly powerful in its effect. And holberg design has the expertise to create, implement and manage an effective Google AdWords campaign to benefit your business!

Google “Local”

While the web is ubiquitous, Google can also dial you in so your next door neighbor can find you too. Recent changes at Google have merged Google+ Local and Places for Business into Google My Business. If you haven’t claimed your listing, we can help get you registered. Claiming your listing adds powerful content to the results when users search for your business. And it’s the same content that appears across all platforms – desktop, tablet and mobile.

Once you’ve claimed your Google My Business listing, the next step is to let holberg design create a virtual tour of your business. Using Google’s Street View technology, we’ll help you “invite customers inside” the place you work with a 360 degree virtual tour that displays in Google Search, Google Maps and Google+.

It’s amazing to consider that through our Google Partners relationship, we can put one of the world’s most powerful tech giants to work… building YOUR business!
