SKAGs can lower CPC cost, generate higher CTR and improve Quality Score
What is CPC?
Before we talk about SKAGs, we need to understand what CPC is. The acronym stands for Cost per Click, and is super common in digital ads , considering that when running an advertisement in virtual media, it is nice to receive a price estimate for each click from potential customers.
Clicking pricing helps when setting up your campaign because with an average of amounts to be spent, you can measure and estimate the total costs of the campaign, such as profit per click. Sounds advantageous, doesn’t it?!
What is SKAGs?
The SKAGs (Single Keyword Ad Group) means, in Portuguese translation, “Ad group with only one keyword”. That is, it is used to classify advertisements that use only one keyword and its variations.
Now you may be wondering how the strategy is beneficial if it is restricted by a few words… Simple: by creating specific ads, you can reach the ideal audience and generate a higher CTR (click per impressions), generating a higher Index of Quality with your keyword, in addition to lowering your CPC.
The higher your quality score, the lower your conversion cost. To achieve a good quality ranking, you must consider the relevance of the ad, landing page and estimated CTR for the campaign.
The AdEspresso released a study with 104,256 ads and found that when the relevance of the ad and the CTR increases, there is a huge drop in CPC.
Speaking of real data, London PPC agency Clicteq has released some data and reports on its ad group CTR increase by 28.1% (from 3.85% to 4.93%) when using the by strategy two months. In addition, the company reported a 14% increase in CTR and a 21% cost-per-conversion reduction.
Still on Clicteq, there was a case study that the SKAG strategy increased a company’s CTR by 22%, reducing cost per lead by 50%, increasing leads by 106%.
How it works?
In practice, when using SKAGs, an Adwords campaign, for example, becomes much more efficient. Even with a disputed keyword, SKAGs are able to filter the ad group scope for specific word searches. These optimization details make it easy to set up and profit from a campaign.
In short, the prospect will search for the product or service they want, and if the keywords are the same as your ad, the chance of reaching that individual is much higher. Therefore, it is nice to consider a specific keyword for your advertising, as it increases the conversion rate, number of visits and its cost.
