Easy Adwords For Local Business – Adwords Express

By March 23, 2012 PPC No Comments

 

Google Adwords Express has launched in Australia and New Zealand, offering small businesses a quick and easy way to advertise online – even if they don’t have a website! (yes, that’s right).

 

Adwords Express has a few restrictions compared to the normal Adwords interface, as outlined below. But maybe ‘restriction’ is the wrong word – the point is not to be restrictive, but to make it easier for small businesses, with small budgets and not a lot of time, to be able to use Adwords as well.

 

  • Monthly budget (instead of daily)
  • You choose business categories, not individual keywords.
  • You can’t manage bids, it’s done automatically for you
  • You can only show ads locally (25km radius)
  • Text ads only
  • Google Places listing required

 

And as I mentioned above – the biggest difference is that you don’t even need a website to advertise on Google Adwords now – all you need is a Google Places listing which is free!

 

If you or someone you know has a small business, even if they don’t have a website, we can help hook them up with some Google Express vouchers, so get in contact.
