Introduction to Google Ads: Workshop

Do you want to rank #1 on Google? 

What if you were told that the very idea of this is mostly a myth?

Despite what some SEO (Search Engine Optimization) “experts” might tell you, the top of the first page on Google is a nebulous, shifting target. There is no magic formula that will guarantee a top ranking.

November 14: Google Partners B2B Marketing Event

B2B Marketing

You are invited to come to our Google Partners Connect event on B2B Marketing Strategies

What is This?

Google Event is when Radar Hill hosts a free live webinar focused on a specific area or industry of online marketing. The live stream lasts about one hour, with plenty of time afterwards for questions and answers.

B2B Marketing

This event is focused on B2B online marketing. Decision-makers are 75% of the way through their purchase process before even reaching out to a brand, and when they are searching for a business to hire, 68% of the research is digitally driven. There is an average of 12 searches online before engaging with a brand.This means it is vital to be online, ready for prospective clients to find you.

Another thing to note is that using multi-screen is the default for B2B researches, but mobile searches are increasing. Having your ads and website adapted to fit both these mediums will maximize its impact. For example, 20% of searches are now done via voice search, and most Google Assistant requests are asked in natural speech. Having content that matches these search styles ensures that your digital presence is as effective as possible.

B2B marketing is hard. Get your online presence to the right person, at the right time. In this digital era, relying purely on word-of-mouth is not enough. Come to this Google workshop about B2B marketing strategies, and we will help you to implement effective methods.

Digital Marketing

Last year, digitally savvy small businesses were almost 3x more likely to increase calls, leads, and sales inquiries. Not only that, but the top 20% most digitally advanced businesses earned 2x as much revenue per employee.
