The Brief

The Children’s Hospital Charity has a grant account for their Google ads, which opens up challenges due to the fact that you are then limited on how much you can bid for each keyword.

This can significantly limit visibility for certain keywords, creating a consistent issue in the ad account and stopping us from driving enough traffic. Similarly, there were also a few gaps in our keyword list, which meant that we were missing relevant opportunities to show our ads.

Our Strategy

To combat the challenges we were experiencing, we started a fresh and completely restructured the ad account. This meant rebuilding our keyword list to make sure that we had all relevant opportunities covered. As an example, we began including keywords around ‘will gifts’, ‘charity donations’ and ‘charity events’ to make sure we had all bases covered.

We also tested our Google smart bidding strategies, which is a form of automated keyword bidding, that enabled us to bypass the bidding limits imposed by Google.
