Have you tried all your tricks and nothing is noticeably improving in your paid search campaigns? It’s easy to get stuck in a rut when you do in-house PPC. You feel like you’ve optimized everything and yet you’re pretty sure the results could be better. We’ve certainly been there.

That’s why we decided to reach out to paid search professionals working at performance marketing agencies. They are superusers of paid-search-related technologies, “in-the-know” when it comes to the latest changes and updates in the industry, and have vast experience testing different approaches and tactics.

We interviewed Paid Search Directors and Managers from performance marketing agencies in the U.S. and U.K., posing the same set of questions to each. On certain topics, like the importance of account structure and what it should look like, they were all in agreement. But on other subjects, like bidding on competitors’ keywords or whether to rely on in-house or third-party technology, they had different opinions. They also had different views on how to evaluate performance marketing agencies.

Ready to spark some new ideas, learn about specific best practices and get some tips from the experts?
