Google has just announced the launch of a new pilot where you can speak to a Google Ads specialist to get advice on improving your Google Ads results. They plan to charge $50 per call. In our opinion, this is unreasonable. We have been giving free advice on the use of Google products and, in fact, on all types of internet marketing for years!
What is/are Google Ads?
Just so we’re all on the same page here, let’s define Google Ads. According to Google:
“Google Ads is Google’s online advertising program. Through Google Ads, you can create online ads to reach people exactly when they’re interested in the products and services that you offer.”
While we’re at it, let’s define internet marketing too. Zigma Internet Marketing defines internet marketing (aka online marketing) as:
“the promotion of products, services, or brands through various digital channels, such as search engines, social media, email, and websites. The goal of online marketing is to reach a target audience and engage with them to drive conversions, increase brand awareness, and generate revenue. Some common tactics used in online marketing include search engine optimization (SEO), pay-per-click advertising (PPC), content marketing, and social media marketing.”
Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?
As it stands, you have the ability to look on Google, YouTube, and a myriad of other platforms to get advice about the best ways to set up and use a Google Ads account to promote your business, all for free. Some, but not all, of the people giving advice are qualified to do so.
Why, all of a sudden, is Google charging for this service? To be honest, we don’t know why they have chosen this particular business model. We have freely been advising businesses about all things to do with internet marketing for years and have no plans to stop now.
