Does Adwords really help or waste of money?

I don't feel that Adwords really work at all. Anyone out there have a better luck doing it?  I have been paying $100 a month with Google Words but the return is not worth doing it at all?  Our prices are too cheap compares to our competitors like Uline.com Check us out at www.startradings.com

 

Thanks you!

Hello.

 

Though I'm repeating myself (see this thread please: https://www.en.adwords-community.com/t5/Improve-results-optimize-ROI-CTR/Which-Google-AdWords-featur...), I'll post a fragment here as well.

 

The question, on that thread, was which features brought us (advertisers) success with AdWords. And I really felt I should start with this:

 

Understanding that AdWords is neither easy nor plain, and that without serious work, study, attention to details, one cannot be (too) successful. Managing successful AdWords accounts is a job in itself (be it part-time), a profession. It may be the second or the third job, but it is not, by any means, something you can do on and off, whenever you feel you have some time to spare, and postponing it whenever you have other, more important things to do. Translation: if you want results, prepare for hard, intelligent and, above all, constant work.

 

So the answer to your questions may be: if you're prepared to work hard, first in order to understand how AdWords works, in detail, and then to test and improve constantly, then yes, by all means, it's a tremendously effective marketing tool.

 

If, however, you cannot, or will not put enough effort into it, then it is definitely a waste of time, and money.

 

But since you're already here, give us more clues as to what you did, how your account looks, etc., and who knows, we might just be able to help.

Try to refine you keywords list as I can't see your ads when searching 4-8" Stock Boxes but you do have a good Organic result and that's some thing you are missing a potential clicks on AdWords Ads.

I also have the same question.I am doing network-marketing and wondering if it can work for me or its suitable for established businesses.

 

Thank you.

Add audiences (interests and remarketing lists) to an ad group.

You'll first need to create a campaign that includes the Google Display Network. Remember to select "Display Network only" as the campaign type when you create your campaign.
