The missions of a Google Ads agency
Definition of strategic keywords for your company
The implementation of a digital acquisition strategy by a paid search company requires the definition of strategic keywords. This research and selection of keywords is decisive for the development of your online advertising campaigns. This choice of keywords will trigger the delivery of your ads when a user searches for that particular word. Once the keywords have been selected, the next step is to choose the different keyword variants. You should know that the Google advertising service has 4 variants, namely
The broad query
The broad query is a variant that allows you to reach the most Internet users, which involves high costs due to the high volume of searches for each word. This variant does not contain any modification signs (see following variants). All you have to do is enter the keyword in the tool, such as: car. Your ads will then be displayed as soon as a user searches for: car, regardless of the words before or after the keyword. This variant should therefore be handled with care.
The broad query modifier
The broad query modifier is a little more precise. Its modification sign is the “+”. Example: +shirt +man.
Your ad will appear as soon as a user request contains the two words, with other words before, between and after. Example: wash a black shirt man
The exact phrase
The exact expression is based on the same principle as the broad query modifier but without the words between the expression. Its modifier sign is: ” “, Example: “man shirt”.
Your ad is displayed when a user searches for “men’s shirt”, example: where to buy a men’s shirt?
The exact keyword
The exact keyword is the most precise variant of Google Ads. Its sign is the bracket: [ ], example: [men’s shirt].
Your ad will then be displayed when a user types: men’s shirt, and exclusively this keyword. Nothing before, between or after.
Each variant therefore has a broader or more precise target, which includes a variation of the bids, namely the CPC. As a general rule, the more precise a query is, the higher the bids will be (depending on the competition).
Creation of Google Ads according to your targets
Once the keywords are determined, a Google Adwords agency will create your ads. It will take care to integrate the keywords, as well as the advantages of your products and/or services and your company. The aim is to create an attractive ad that will generate clicks and therefore a good CTR. It is important to note that the more clicks an ad gets, the higher its Quality Score, and the costs are likely to decrease the higher your score. Each ad title and description is unique and responds to the needs of the customers.
Analysis of your campaign data
Once your campaigns are up and running, an expert SEA consultant has to analyse the data of the campaigns, ad groups and ads. An SEA agency like Doko uses different KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) to evaluate the profitability of your campaigns. These are: CTR (click-through rate), average CPC, conversions, conversion rate, and of course ROI, because we are talking about generating sales.
CPC and Quality Score Optimisation
Once the data analysis is done, our France-based Google Ads agency will adjust the campaigns according to the results. This may involve changing ad titles and descriptions, lowering maximum CPCs, changing delivery times and other demographic targeting criteria. Expert ATS consultants also ensure that the budget is allocated to the most profitable campaigns for your business. Each analysis is designed to improve your online advertising campaigns and make them more effective.
Types of advertising offered by our Google Ads agency
Our Google advertising agency located in France offers you different types of campaigns adapted to your needs and objectives. Here is a detail of each type of referencing campaign that we can put online for your company.
Search network: the timing of ad delivery
The search network is the most common type of distribution. It allows ads to be displayed via keyword searches by Internet users, and therefore to be present at each of their requests concerning your activity. The search network involves the use of keywords and their variants. The arrival of responsive ads is also an asset for creating ad variants and being able to evaluate the best performing associations.
Display: the power of the Google network
Display is a network for distributing ads via the Google network in the form of banners, text or video. It allows you to reach a large number of users, and is particularly useful for increasing your brand’s awareness and e-reputation.
Remarketing (RLSA): low cost conversion
Remarketing, or RLSA (Remarketing List for Search Ads) allows you to target users who have already visited your website. This allows you to reach Internet users who are already aware of your brand, or your products and services. It is a campaign that aims to generate conversions at low cost: ideal for your ROI.
Google Shopping: advertising for ecommerce sites
Do you have an e-Commerce site? Google Shopping is for you. It’s an ad format that highlights your products with images, prices and customer reviews. All of this is shown to the right target group at the right time. This allows users to find exactly what they are looking for, thus increasing your conversions.

Paid search: how does Google Ads work?
Before calling on the services of a search engine optimization (SEA) agency, it is interesting to know how Google Adwords works. This will allow you to better understand the challenges and missions of your Adwords account manager. The main thing you need to know is that search engine advertising works on a cost-per-click (CPC) system. The principle is simple: an online promotional marketing agency defines your keywords on which bids will be placed. Once your Google ads campaigns are up and running, your ads will be served when a user makes a request containing your most strategic keywords. This allows you to control the costs of ad delivery as you only pay when a user clicks on your ad. But that’s not all, you will be present when the customer makes a request concerning your company. Here are the different modes of operation: ads on the search network, Google Display, Google shopping, and RLSA (remarketing list).
What budget for a Google Ads campaign?
The advantage of Google Adword is that there is no minimum amount. You can very well create ads with a budget of €50 per month. However, you need to take into account the competition in your industry and your return on investment (ROI) objectives to determine a good digital marketing budget. The more competition you have, the higher the Cost Per Click (CPC), and therefore the amount of your budget will be impacted.
It is advisable to have a minimum budget of €300 for this type of online promotion. This allows you to have enough data to analyse to boost your performance. The lower the amount, the more data will be missing, and therefore the more areas for improvement.
What is the price of a Google click?
The price of a Google Adwords click is fixed according to the competition of the bids. A click can cost 0.05€ or more than 200€ depending on the sector of activity. The price of a click on a term related to a brand will only cost a few cents, while a click on a competitive keyword such as locksmith France will cost several tens or even hundreds of euros. When setting up your ads, a digital marketing agency will provide you with the price per click (cost per click) for your products and services. Note that these are estimates that can go up or down depending on the competition and the quality of your ads.
What is a good CPC?
A good CPC is not determined by its base price, but by what it brings you. It is important to understand that a good CPC is set according to the ROI you want to achieve. You should also take into account your total budget in this calculation. Is it relevant to rank on very competitive search terms, or to rank for £50 when you have £200? The answer is no.
Why use Google Adwords?
There are many reasons why it is interesting and profitable to use Google Adwords for your company. Whether you are a small or medium-sized company or a large enterprise, this lever is synonymous with growth. You can use Google to promote your brand, your products and services, your website. You will be able to communicate on all your products and services when users ask for them, which makes the ads more natural and encourages conversions. It is also interesting to use online advertising to complement an SEO strategy, or any digital strategy (depending on your products and services).
Online advertising: should you launch social ads campaigns in parallel with your SEO?
If you want your brand to appear everywhere on the Web and boost your digital growth, it is strongly advised to vary the acquisition levers such as Google Ads, Bing Ads, Youtube, Facebook Ads… Thus, nothing prevents you from launching Social Ads actions, via Facebook marketing, SnapChat, Pinterest, Linked In or on other social networks in parallel with your paid search ads.
Calling on an agency specialised in online advertising promotion, such as Doko in France, is the guarantee of finding serious partners who master all these advertising tools and their targeting criteria. Our SEA experts can offer you a tailor-made service, adapted to your marketing objectives and your advertising expenses. We can manage the promotion of each acquisition lever to help you generate visits and conversions via a complete advertising strategy on social networks, while maintaining the distribution of SEA campaigns on the search network, banners or Shopping ads.
Is it relevant to have the same agency for your SEO and SEA strategy?
Whatever your sector of activity, in order for your website or e-commerce site to be as visible as possible to users and prospects, it is important to work correctly on your SEO. This includes both natural referencing (SEO) and paid referencing (SEA). These two types of traffic and lead acquisition strategies should be carried out in parallel with each other, as they are generally complementary.
As the effects of SEO are not immediately measurable, SEA campaigns (as well as social ads) will allow you to instantly increase your visibility as they can generate visits as soon as they are published. Moreover, if your site is already well positioned in the natural results on certain words, the advertising budgets dedicated to certain ads can be adjusted in real time in order to improve your ROI and limit unnecessary expenses.
To do this, it is often best to use a single digital agency that has a good grasp of the entire digital ecosystem. Indeed, the latter will have a more global vision of your Web project and will be able to more easily offer you tailor-made solutions, according to your needs.
Other advantages: using the same SEO and SEA agency also allows you to
- limit the number of people involved in your digital project,
- facilitate exchanges and communication about your company,
- reduce your costs: you only have to pay one external service provider.
