Daily limit for adwords has run out...

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭
# 1
Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I was doing a trial and error of daily budgets as this is day 3 of adwords,  and every time my adverts would stop showing, I would increase my daily bid, I went as high as £30 a day in the thought that I wouldn't get that many clicks, just increase my visibility. And if i did increase my hits, well then that would lead to lots of sales.

 

To cut a long story short, I was wrong, I got 80 hits, made zero sales and got charged £30 ;-(

 

Grrrr, well I can't afford £30 a day, so I'm back to £5 a day where I'm comfy.

 

However, ads not showing at all says my budget has run out

 

SO the question is, is that my daily budget, or is that allocated on a weekly budget as I've already been charged £30...will they start showing again tomorrow?

 

Is £5 a day a very low budget where I will barely been seen?

 

What is everyone else's daily budget's?

 

I run an online shop where I ship worldwide...

Hi there;

It seems that the your budget is indeed low for the type of the business you are promoting;


A good point to start would be to check he actual price paid by advertisers for the keywords which trigger most of the impressions. Look for historical PPC  data for those keywords  using the keyword planner


Conversion is another topic: is your ad-copy really attractive? Are your keywords"tightly themed" with the product you promote? And finally, is your landing page design to "drive" users to convert?
All these points that you need to check;


As for CTR and QS:  since your budget is quite low, I would look at those only after checking the above metrics.

Thank you for the advice

The question I wanted answering was, when it says my budget has run out, is that for the day, or for the month?

What does everybody else set as their daily limit? Roughly?

The advisor for daily budget doesn?t show yet for me as Im a new seller.

Thank you

Good luck, Andrea

Couple of pointers...

Are you sure that allowing Google to target every location is a good idea? You'd be surprised how much budget can be eaten up across the world if your bid is set "high" - what may seem high to you in the UK is rich kids territory in other countries - so be careful with that...

My recommendation? Start with one country - perhaps the one where you are already getting sales... develop a strategy that works and then look to implement that in another country, and so on - at the outset the more variables you have the less meaningful your numbers tend to be

Hi Andrea,

Daily budgets perfectly correlate to pieces of string ;-)

Every advertiser's budget is different.

You set a daily budget and Google will run your ads until you get enough clicks to use it up (plus a 20% allowance - which they will balance out over the month....)

Here's the thing - if your clicks are going to cost £2 - then you'll get two clicks for your £5 - and then Google will serve ads where the CPC is £1 - because that's what you've got left. These ads are likely to be in poorer positions or at poorer times of the day when many of your competitors are choosing not to advertise...

People set their daily budget depending upon how much they are prepared to invest into their business. At the beginning of any campaign the returns are likely to be lower than they will (should) be once you have had a chance to optimise. Once you get to a point where your profits for every £5 spent are £10 - how much would you spend?

Yep - as much as you have. It's all down to the margins and the conversions.

Thank you ;-)

Its a complete & utter minefield, every time i feel I have one area covered, I discover a whole new world of tricks and tips I had no idea about!

For now, I will start then with a ?10 daily allowance and see where it takes me, I will choose ?search network only? as for my online shop I feel maybe this is the best solution and will allow google to automatically bid for me, choosing every location.

I will keep an eye on my ads to see how frequent they are shown within that budget and see also how it affects my sales.

Im also advertising on Amazon sponsored ad?s and Facebook.

Lets hope it doesn?t get too expensive!
