Anyone experience an issue with opt in rates from YT ads? Our YT opt in rate is 2% when the same exact landing page is converting at 20% for FB ads. Is this an issue with bots? or do we need a totally different landing page for YT ads? Help!
In mid-February, I excluded this URL from all video campaigns, and it's working great. Go to Tools and Settings > Placement Exclusion Lists > New List > Enter and paste this URL: googleadsense_without_youtube.com Then hit save. Hope it helps.
Hi @David Franco does this still work? I went into the Google Ads editor and I am currently unable to load recent campaigns; so I can't check on this. It also won't let me switch the settings of displaying on search and display networks off. Thank you!
I launched a new campaign two days ago and under the "Where ads showed" report, 95% of the budget has been spent on the display network and 5% on the YouTube network so far. (I have received 1,158 views from display ads and 60 from YouTube. I've gotten 43 clicks to my landing page but no conversions yet.) Google Ads is reporting that my ad strength is "excellent". Is this normal? If yes, maybe you can tell me why... If it's not normal, what can I do to fix this? Thanks so much @Brian Moncada
@David Franco Hey! I saw you replied to a few comments of mine so I will just reply here to all of them... First of all, thank you for sharing this. I got it put in place thanks to you! Maybe you can help me with another question? I am currently doing keyword research for entrepreneurs and professionals who would like to gain the skill of bringing more peace, confidence, and self worth into their life and work... I saw how much spend you've done on Google ads from your screenshots so I thought maybe you've got some good recommendations for starting to target that niche? Appreciate any guidance you can give and again, seriously appreciate this tip about excluding display network! You're the man.
Hey, the campaigns I've launched recently have seemed to be attracting what looks like bots. Even though I optimise for sales, have a very well trained pixel, and run proven ads in developed countries, some of my campaigns have gotten cost per leads as high as $1,000. These are the same ads and same funnel that have gotten thousands of sales at $50 each, yet new campaigns will spend 2x their budget in 1 day, get HUNDREDS of clicks, and only 1 optin on the checkout page. Why is this happening? My google rep is CLUELESS and suggests random campaign structures and types where the exact same thing happens.
Does anyone have experience successfully getting an account unsuspended for suspicious payments? This is a brand new account for a client and the appeal we submitted got rejected within the same day of sending it with no explanation. Any insight would be greatly appreciated 🙏
I just created a new ad and 5 ad hook angles... I am debating on if I should launch them with or without subtitles... The video is of me simply sitting in my studio with a nice background, lighting, etc. Has anyone seem time and time again an improvement in ad performance when subtitles are used (or not)? Or does anyone have testing practices that entail either using or not using subtitles? Thanks! @Brian Moncada @Israel Fernandez
If you start up a new campaign with 5 different ads within it, how much spend/clicks/time should you give on each individual ad before you pause any? I have about $40 spent and between 30 to 70 clicks on each individual ad and there is clearly one of the ads that's converting better with my current opt-in page. The campaign has been running for one week. When do you know it's okay to turn off the ads that are not performing within KPI? Thanks!
Hi, guys. I set up a campaign based on custom segments with high intentional keywords like - best dating coach florida, how to find a dating coach, based on Purchase/Interest and top 20% income level. This is my only affordable campaign so far, but the quality of the leads is nothing like before the google slap. I was cracking my head for 2 weeks and finally looked at the placements. Those were trashy channels. It is not possible that people who make 20% top income would watch those channels, like "Cheap RV Living", or others. Google is not honoring my income bracket, and that is making me question - is that what is happening right now with ai? Also, looks like i am unable to edit placements, is that right? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
@Luba Evans I am in a similar niche to you and my ad placements haven't been so great either (lots of display ads and not a high percentage of on-YouTube ads), same with low optin conversion rates. Would love to know if you figure it out and I'll let you know what I figure out as well.
So, this never happened before. I ran ads to a VSL with max conversions, to a custom audience. To test I put $30 as daily budget. And it's spending all my budget in like one hour. Anyone had a similar experience?
Happens to me and I was curious, so thanks for asking! I was waking up and checking my accounts and noticing that my daily spend was already spent. I did notice that after a couple days it does slow spending down and spends it more throughout the day.
Thought I‘d share it with you guys - feel free to comment below if you need any more ads in a specific niche. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1PFUnCcrFiOV3z6TIKQYvoj6Aou5FTUoI6dQ4rfjaQzA/edit?usp=sharing
I am trying to find out why my landing page conversion rate is so low at 4.3%... Attached is an image of my Google ads for this month for my one campaign that's running at $30 per day... I found a proven ad that was converting into booked calls, so I used that video angle and created different versions of it, (changing thumbnail and ad text) and those three versions are shown in the screenshot. I watched a training by @Israel Fernandez and replicated the landing page he was showing for my niche, with hope that it would perform better than the previous version I was using. It is still currently converting at 5%, which is how well my previous version was doing. Could you please watch my ad, view my landing page, and the two screenshots, and let me know what stands out? Ad: https://youtu.be/d5m3ogTj0Sw Two landing page versions: https://www.altermyparadigm.com/begin-now https://www.altermyparadigm.com/begin-journey Thanks so much! This truly means a lot. David @Brian Moncada @Israel Fernandez any suggestions? Greatly appreciate it!
@Israel Fernandez I really, really appreciate that advice! Yes that optin page congruence makes sense... lead quality was not the best on FB with the 35% optin rate, you are right. I am making new ads where I will mention the 5 steps, time period of results, etc. and will regroup. Love your headline example for this current video too. Greatly appreciate your insight and your training on improving landing page conversions was very useful. Thanks!
I was running Facebook video ads and was getting a 35% optin rate on my landing page, I'm now using that same ad and landing page for YouTube and am getting plenty of clicks but a super low conversion rate to leads... about 5%. Does anyone have any idea what's happening here? More info: I tested my page yesterday for page load speed, I decreased image sizes and the report rated it a "B". My YT ad account is new (from last month) and does not have much data, but it's sort of boggling my mind that this page is not converting at all if people who resonate with my video are visiting it. Currently optimizing for lead conversions. I am using Click Funnels and have it set to a split test the landing page, is that possibly a bad practice for YT ads? Thanks for any advice you can give! @Brian Moncada
Hey guys, I was setting up a brand new Google Ads account and it got flagged as 'suspicious payment'. I know that this is probably happening due to an old account in which I was using the same PayPal account that I'm using on this new one. However, I previously deleted the old account before creating this new one. In any case, I've written appeals multiple times explaining this whole situation, sending a PayPal report with the last payment made to Google with the intention of proving that I'm the owner of that account. Now, the most frustrating thing is that right immediately after I send the appeal, I get an auto email from Google stating that 'there is no active suspension applied to the account you have provided.' However, my account continues suspended... I'm running in circles here, growing desperate and going nowhere... I know that these suspensions are quite common, but for whatever reason I can’t get mine lifted. Have any of you had a similar problem? Any tips about this? Thanks in advance
@Brian Moncada Hi Brian, I submitted my appeal and they got back to me the same day and denied it. It seems to be an automated response. I think it's possible that the account got suspended for suspicious payment activity because it was using the same card I have on another account... it seems the other account is not suspended; what should I do to not cause any red flags so I can run ads? Thank you. (While following the WeTube ads trainings I created another ad account instead of using the old one because I wanted to start fresh. I do not believe I have a support rep assigned to me.)
