Transcripts

john:

The reason why this is important is because 80% of what Google Ads does.

john:

Do you need to move up the funnel?

john:

Not necessarily.

john:

That is the next easiest step up from where you're at, and that's

john:

typically where about 99% of all Google advertising campaigns go to.

john:

So we wanna make sure that we can use this strateg.

john:

And when I say use, I mean use Google Ads or use any marketing

john:

channel strategically enough that there is a revenue stream coming in

john:

that allows you to go top of funnel.

john:

All right, now we're talking about building a brand.

john:

This one's gonna be a little bit not necessarily building a brand

john:

just in Google, but just kind of building a brand in general and

john:

then also having to do with Google.

john:

How would you transition that into Google campaigns?

john:

What type of campaigns you should be running, audiences you should target,

john:

types of audiences, all the good stuff.

john:

first thing that we're gonna talk about on brand building is

john:

essentially the competitive ecosystem.

john:

So when building a brand, if you have a company that has a fairly simple,

john:

well established product, so let's say, New brand or something else that

john:

is different than, you know, a new wizzywig that people never have heard of.

john:

When you're talking about building a brand, one thing that's actually really

john:

important is talking about the total applicable market that you are going

john:

to be looking to break into if you are starting a business or if you're

john:

looking to expand your product category.

john:

There's two things that are happening now in the.

john:

World of paid traffic.

john:

That is the difference between a fairly inexpensive success and a very expensive,

john:

more long-term success, and that is what they call an established market.

john:

We have, a lot of times customers will come to us and say, Hey, I

john:

have this brand new product, and no one's ever seen it before.

john:

And, it's something revolut.

john:

Missionary and no one even knows it exists.

john:

Well, all that says is it's extremely expensive now to, get people to

john:

understand what that product is and the methods of which you need to market to

john:

that new product are gonna be vastly different since there is no inbound

john:

traffic for this new unheard of product, you have to develop an audience.

john:

have to pay to establish an industry, which we're talking

john:

about building a brand.

john:

You're looking at top of funnel, you're looking at YouTube, you're

john:

looking at discovery display.

john:

If you're looking at Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and even one of the

john:

largest growing audiences inside of TikTok is a 30 year old user and above.

john:

when we're talking about building a brand, I think the context of our

john:

conversation is we're going to be talking about our specific clients.

john:

Our specific clients have been clients that have already been reviewed

john:

by either, the sales team, custom myself, someone has looked at this

john:

and said, yes, this can work on Google specifically, and go from there.

john:

As we start to build out a.

john:

Campaign strategy.

john:

very little times do.

john:

We have a new customer coming to us that has a product that has never

john:

been seen before by the world.

john:

Sometimes that does happen and we've found out that those are

john:

extremely expensive propositions.

john:

We don't have the people that are going to.

john:

Inbound search and Googling.

john:

Google doesn't have an audience for these people.

john:

They don't have the previous most frequently performed actions before

john:

they purchase the new product that no one's ever seen before.

john:

So it's very, very, very expensive.

john:

So let's talk about building a brand on a company that has an established industry.

john:

One thing that I would say is A small claim to fame for us

john:

is called the bottom up funnel.

john:

And it's something that Kaso and I have put together.

john:

We've actually had a podcast, it was one of our first podcasts on the perpetual

john:

traffic some digital marketer podcast.

john:

But the bottom up funnel is actually something that we actually use as

john:

a practice internally quite often.

john:

And you've all seen it.

john:

And the bottom of funnel means starting at the bottom of the

john:

funnel and then working your way.

john:

What that means is you start with the purchasers first.

john:

When you start with the purchasers first, you can see what they're buying,

john:

what they spend, the competitive ecosystem, what the cost acquisition

john:

is, what the roaz is, how large that audience is, and that will give you A

john:

way point, I guess a cardinal direction as to where you need to go up funnel.

john:

If you have, let's say, 50 SKUs and you find out that 20 of those 50 SKUs

john:

sell 90% of the time, the other SKUs never really get much inbound traffic.

john:

They don't even by segmented into their own campaign, they don't

john:

necessarily even get a good result.

john:

It normally means that this is the products that are selling versus these

john:

are the products that are not gonna sell and you're not going to be able to.

john:

Products that are not selling and magically turn them into sales.

john:

So you have to kind of pivot to the products that are working.

john:

very simple, just kind of marketing sales 1 0 1.

john:

20% of the products are selling because they sell.

john:

That's a very, very simple constant rule in everything marketing.

john:

So when you take a look at those products that are selling, you

john:

have to figure out is it plentiful at that bottom of the funnel?

john:

If it is, Sometimes you can actually just stay there almost forever and expand

john:

into just a higher volume at that low level, that bottom of the bottom of the

john:

funnel, the last point of visit to a sale.

john:

The reason why this is important is because that's

john:

80% of what Google Ads does.

john:

It simply finds the audiences who.

john:

Having a purchase or an intent to purchase that product and

john:

then finds them and capture them, that's pretty much performance Max.

john:

That's what smart shopping was.

john:

It's what standard shopping is.

john:

It's what search is.

john:

Those are inbound, direct response, demand driven.

john:

Campaigns that work really well, does that build a brand?

john:

No.

john:

That just tells you that your brand is good enough to capture the

john:

conversions on the people already looking for that type of product.

john:

And when I say that type of product, I mean that established industry, that

john:

established industry is going to be the reason why the first six months will

john:

be successful or extremely expensive.

john:

So before we talk about building a brand from.

john:

Middle and top of funnel.

john:

We have to first identify what is working at the bottom of the funnel, what products

john:

are selling, and as much information as we can extract as to why, and then get

john:

a good solid number base off of that.

john:

If I have these 20 products selling at $10,000 per month's, making me

john:

$30,000 per month, so my ROS is 300%, my cost for acquisition is $25.

john:

The L T V is kick said Ro up to 500% after a.

john:

This is good.

john:

How big is the market?

john:

Well, our click shares 15%.

john:

We can actually increase our exact structure campaign by five times before

john:

we start to feel c p a really start to creep up into the, negatives, I

john:

guess I would say it from profitability in a row as start to dip too hard.

john:

That's the first segment that's about 80% of what Google Ads does in the beginning.

john:

again, not building a brand, though.

john:

That's simply identifying.

john:

Works to build a brand, you have to then go middle and top of funnel.

john:

You have to start to that bottom up funnel where you start the bottom and go up.

john:

then you have to start doing brand building in each area, middle of

john:

the funnel and top of the funnel.

john:

But you do brand building for different reasons.

john:

So as you look at the products that are selling, we have to make sure that.

john:

Are they relevant to the brand?

john:

Drop shippers do a terrible, terrible job at this.

john:

They don't have a brand.

john:

They have a company called Deals now for everyone.com, and they sell cat

john:

toys and Chevrolets, like they just sell anything that sells because they

john:

don't have a brand, they don't have a purpose, they don't have a message.

john:

They have a market.

john:

They don't have an audience.

john:

Audience.

john:

They have a product that people want.

john:

This isn't for those type of of sellers.

john:

To build a brand, you need to have a purpose, a theme, something that you can

john:

say the name of your company off the top of your head, and people already know what

john:

you sell regardless of what your name is.

john:

Everyone here knows what Uber is, right?

john:

If I told you that Uber is German for Godly, would you all say, yeah, of course.

john:

No.

john:

You say no.

john:

That's the car service.

john:

So the branding did that.

john:

It obviously tells you that Uber is the ride share car car app.

john:

That's what that does.

john:

And they do one thing that's a theme of purpose and it's

john:

very consistent, very simple.

john:

Branding isn't hard.

john:

there's no secret sauce to get branding.

john:

It's just consistency.

john:

When you look at the product for Google Ads specifically that are working you're

john:

aggressive on the bottom of the funnel marketing you've sort of tapped that out.

john:

That is where you have to move up the funnel.

john:

Do you need to move up the funnel?

john:

Not necessarily, not always.

john:

Sometimes like we had a client that does debt consolidation that I was

john:

bidding half of the first page C P C in getting 50% conversion rates, I could

john:

have spent 200 grand a day on that easy.

john:

And I was only counting the conversions that we.

john:

The people that are actually had more than $10,000 in debt.

john:

There was another 50,000 people a month that we were converting

john:

that had under $10,000 in debt.

john:

So when I'm talking about maxing out the bomb in the funnel, you

john:

don't have to be the company that debt consolidation the best.

john:

You just had to be there.

john:

And depending upon what your client's budgets are, you can simply kind of max

john:

that out to the point of diminishing.

john:

Then you have to build a brand your conversion rates as you start to

john:

spend more money dictate how much more you have to build a brand.

john:

Okay, so now let's say we maxed that out.

john:

Now what?

john:

Now we have to identify two things.

john:

What was the conversion path where do they have the most

john:

activity and most effort to start?

john:

If we look at Performance Max, for example, performance Max does a great

john:

job at identifying what channels are working and what channels are not,

john:

or what channels are working so well that they don't need other channels.

john:

Performance Max does not do a bad job at not getting us conversions.

john:

It does a good job of telling us where they're not going to come from.

john:

So Performance Max simply tells you that, okay, you have seven channels if you're

john:

including local, but search, shopping, YouTube, gsb, discover Display, here's

john:

where the conversions are coming in from.

john:

Most often it's search or shopping.

john:

are pretty much where those sales are gonna come from.

john:

From an e-commerce Perce perspective, lead generation, most often it's YouTube and.

john:

those are just the areas that, those work in.

john:

Not all the time, but that's usually, what happens.

john:

So when we look at performance Max, when we're about to go mid and upper funnel,

john:

what Performance Max does is say, okay, everybody that actually had a direct

john:

response, they all came in through here.

john:

Now, what else?

john:

Well, your YouTube campaign actually had 15 view Engage conversions this last week.

john:

of those view conversions are $12, and I only spent about one 10th of your budget.

john:

Great YouTube's.

john:

The next step that I'm gonna be working at, I'm gonna be starting to go middle

john:

of the funnel to the YouTube audience, who well check your insights, check your

john:

insights of who's actually converting, what is the affinities learning.

john:

In markets, look at your signals, who are you targeting?

john:

Try to find an overlap between the two.

john:

But when you're talking about building a brand, you have to start

john:

to educate these people now to get them into the position where you were

john:

already finding other ones before.

john:

You're already at the bottom of the funnel.

john:

Once people made it top of the funnel, middle of the funnel, and they

john:

land a bottom of the funnel, that's where your apen kicks in typically.

john:

And then you convert those people.

john:

But how do they get middle the top of the funnel to middle of the funnel?

john:

And then they, more importantly, how did they get from middle of

john:

the funnel to bottom of the funnel?

john:

What were the channels and what were the messages?

john:

And what is your competitors doing as.

john:

So you have to look at, okay, how do I generate my own bottom of the funnel user?

john:

Your ClickShare isn't the entire world and who would be interested?

john:

It means who's interested now.

john:

That's what ClickShare means.

john:

It doesn't mean that you can't grow the audience that is applicable

john:

to ClickShare by up more traffic.

john:

It just.

john:

Out of everyone that's currently done this on their own, here's

john:

all the available traffic.

john:

So ClickShare is essentially when everyone knows the, the word ClickShare is just

john:

all available clicks that you could have gotten on all the networks regardless.

john:

But you can influence that by using milli funnel on top of funnel.

john:

But if you do it incorrectly, you're gonna spend six months and tens of thousands

john:

of dollars finding out that you didn't actually generate any more people that

john:

are wanting to purchase your products.

john:

So it's very important that you analyze that funnel when you're

john:

looking at moving up into.

john:

of the funnel.

john:

Some things to look at are what is our opportunities for the largest amount

john:

of reach with the most applicable messaging to an appropriate audience?

john:

Is discovery available?

john:

Is that something that could be worthwhile?

john:

Do you have products that.

john:

Establish enough and of a high enough competition that you can

john:

simply move into middle of the funnel and introduce to yourself to those

john:

people who are not knowing that they're at the bottom of the funnel.

john:

What I mean by that is if you have a person that has children and you're

john:

looking for a hair tie for them in the morning because you're doing

john:

their hair and you can't find hair ties, and hair ties are just all

john:

over the place, and I wish I had more hair ties, but you're too busy.

john:

Well, that person that saw a discovery ad about a, hundred pack of hair

john:

ties right on their homepage of Google when they're trying to get a

john:

direction to dinner, be like, perfect.

john:

I'll buy those.

john:

That is a bottom of the funnel user and a middle of the funnel median

john:

with a bottom of the funnel offer.

john:

That is the next easiest step up from where you're at.

john:

And that's typically where about 99% of all Google advertising campaigns go to.

john:

Just that I've seen.

john:

Not even us just, pretty much everybody.

john:

Well, if I can't find all the people that are inbound looking for my product, can

john:

I just go outbound and share my product?

john:

It's still bottom of the funnel.

john:

It's still a very, very bottom of the funnel.

john:

E.

john:

, you are just attracting an audience on a push rather than a poll.

john:

Well, what's that called?

john:

Facebook.

john:

That's what Facebook does too.

john:

Usually a lot of people run, product ads or carousels or

john:

content that sells 'em a product.

john:

It's all very, very middle of the funnel.

john:

There's very little top of the funnel in Google, more so in YouTube.

john:

But a lot of the sales, the revenue, the roaz and the sales actually

john:

come from middle of the funnel and then primarily bottom of the funnel.

john:

I want to understand the flow of this.

john:

Funnel for everyone here where these are people that are ready to

john:

buy the product that you have for sale because you're simply there.

john:

Then middle of the funnel is a mix between people that may not know

john:

that they need a product or know they need a product, but aren't actively

john:

research, aren't actively searching.

john:

Those are very easy to attract.

john:

Now that audience may be so that we don't have clients or

john:

even know clients that would.

john:

more money than they could possibly spend in that area.

john:

What I mean is we have some campaigns that are spending $50,000 a day in middle

john:

of the funnel, having 4% conversion rate where I'm not even getting a

john:

more than 10% of my click share.

john:

There's, it's massive, massive, massive, massive, those two areas that you're

john:

gonna go into, which is inbound direct response and outbound direct response.

john:

All both bound of the.

john:

Is where you are going to make enough revenue and enough consistency

john:

to go then to top of funnel.

john:

What I mean by that is top of funnel, roaz is non-existent.

john:

There should not be a roaz for the top of funnel.

john:

Top of funnel should be measured in CPMs and it should be measured in engagement.

john:

Click the rates, clicks, time on site session pages per session.

john:

Bounce rate.

john:

Am I attracting an audience that's at least willing to give

john:

me two minutes of their time?

john:

That's sort of , the KPI that we would need to attract on top of funnel.

john:

And I'm gonna get into the different ads and campaign types

john:

and all that kind of stuff.

john:

I just wanna lay out when I reference that's the top of funnel.

john:

Don't use that for middle the funnel.

john:

you'll have a reference point in your mind of, okay, that's, I already understand the

john:

three levels that we're talking about when we're talking about building the brand.

john:

Because building a brand is much more than just running, YouTube ads

john:

about your product for all day long.

john:

That's simple.

john:

That will build a brand very, very, very expensively and very ineffectively.

john:

And It is gonna work one day.

john:

Trust me, this is not a glitch.

john:

I'm interrupting the video you're watching because I need to remind

john:

you that I'm always looking for people to join our team.

john:

john:

that I know what I'm talking about.

john:

If you have questions, comments, concerns, or confessions, hit me

john:

below in the comments and now back to your regularly scheduled program.

john:

So I wanna make sure that we can use it strategically.

john:

And when I say use it, I mean use Google Ads or use any marketing

john:

channel strategically enough that there is a revenue stream coming in

john:

that allows you to go top of funnel.

john:

And then what campaign types do you.

john:

So we discuss bottom funnel, direct response shopping, search.

john:

Primarily middle of the funnel with products is where the next level up would

john:

be, which is people that are wanting to buy but have not been searching.

john:

And those campaign types, the ones that we found work the best

john:

are YouTube and I just launched a Discovery Feed app from their company.

john:

First day in learning mode, made six sales.

john:

They're expensive sales, but essentially the same price as what Facebook's doing.

john:

And it's only in the first three days of learning mode.

john:

But in the middle of the funnel, when you're looking at sending

john:

out a product offer something that is, That's new to them.

john:

Using those audiences in other channels besides pmax are gonna be very important.

john:

Pmax, you can't exclude audiences.

john:

You can exclude brand terms, but that's not going to get

john:

us an audience that's cold.

john:

It just means that we don't show up an inbound search.

john:

We're dynamically marketing everyone else.

john:

So it's not cold traffic all the time.

john:

But when we're talking about middle to funnel, when you use things like

john:

YouTube, you can exclude audiences.

john:

When you use discovery, you can exclude audiences discovery with a

john:

feed, you can exclude those audiences and you can actually have a offer

john:

that to specific traffic that is.

john:

Going to cross pollinate with anything else.

john:

So you can exclude all of your website visitors, exclude all your converters.

john:

You can upload lists from your buy the numbers app of all of your previous,

john:

you know, engagers, whatever it may be.

john:

And you can go after cold traffic audiences with different offers,

john:

different introductory offers.

john:

that is still middle of the funnel, but it's bottom of the funnel offered

john:

to a middle of funnel traffic.

john:

So outbound to a person that's looking to purchase something soon,

john:

but has not taken the action to do so, less competitive, less CPCs.

john:

People don't get to the erp.

john:

So it doesn't mean that you're bidding up against, the other big five competitors

john:

that are spending 10 times more than you.

john:

You're starting to generate that audience first.

john:

Those type of offers that you would want to have are going to

john:

be introductory enough to get a person acclimated with your brand.

john:

You can buy a customer for breakeven to start to build that brand awareness.

john:

So what would it mean by that?

john:

Well buy one, get one free to an audience who is the in-market for a product, and

john:

you have that product to sell to them.

john:

It depends on what you're tracking as a k p, but offers to those cold traffic

john:

audiences sometimes will do better than offers to, or than a Standard

john:

price offer to a, user that needs your services but doesn't know your brand.

john:

When people are inbound, they'll spend more when they're out.

john:

When we go outbound, it's harder to get those users to convert.

john:

We have a, company that runs a Facebook ad.

john:

It's actually a part of fas pod.

john:

We have a company that launches a Facebook ad that spends four times as

john:

much money on Facebook than we are in Google and offers them a free sample.

john:

And has driven their cost for acquiring new customer in half

john:

Went from like 120 down to 60.

john:

revenue stayed exactly the same.

john:

Why?

john:

Well, the people took a free offer, so yes, you got a new customer,

john:

but it didn't cost you anything and it didn't make anything.

john:

It's a brand new free person that's been introduced to your brand.

john:

Now that free trial offer is, small version of a larger product.

john:

It's like a think of like a travel size version of something, and it, the cost

john:

of acquiring to that customer was very, very inexpensive because people were like,

john:

of course I'll take a free trial offer.

john:

So on Google though, our cost per conversion is about the same in

john:

that, channel, but the revenue is much higher because they're

john:

full priced inbound offers that are willing to pay $150 for this product.

john:

I think Regina, had a question.

john:

But that list they're building might start to become valuable after few.

john:

Yeah, exactly.

john:

And so that's what's interesting is when you're doing that and inbound,

john:

your outbound of your products, Are gonna be a different offer.

john:

So if we want to start to coach our clients into thinking, okay, we're

john:

gonna launch a discovery ad or we're gonna launch a YouTube ad, what is

john:

something that we can give to this person who's never heard of us before,

john:

has never been to our website before, is interested in our type of products, but

john:

we need to entice them a little more.

john:

Cause I might have like one or two shots of these people.

john:

It needs to be fantastic enough because they're not hunting for

john:

us, we're interrupting their day.

john:

And that's exactly right.

john:

Regina.

john:

what they found is that when we actually started to run those free trials, even

john:

within seven days, our revenue started to increase and our tax stayed the.

john:

Now I'm using the example of Facebook and Google.

john:

We tried to send Google Performance.

john:

Max failed It failed miserably.

john:

We actually didn't see any change, and that's because Performance

john:

Max, we couldn't segment and target and isolate an offering scale.

john:

It was just kind of, Hey, whatever we get, we get.

john:

So our offers were just kind of being eaten up by the

john:

normal traffic that came in.

john:

And we actually saw that our revenue went down.

john:

So we couldn't exclude any of our existing users of simply saying like, aha.

john:

Finally a sale.

john:

And then they would take the.

john:

Our roaz went down because we spent money to make the same

john:

amount of money cuz it discounts.

john:

we're looking at kind of attract in our clients since we are a

john:

lot of inbound direct response.

john:

And then we are just kind of breaking into YouTube and discovery for the

john:

first time with a lot of our clients.

john:

This is the next logical step that we will need to use.

john:

Does this build a brand?

john:

Yes.

john:

There's now new brand awareness.

john:

We're now starting to attract people who are going to buy

john:

our product because of a sale.

john:

Which is fine, but we're starting to impress new cold audiences with our

john:

brand awareness, but we're using it to maintain a RO as that allows us to scale.

john:

Again, I'm trying to speak in a context where a client's not just like,

john:

Hey, here's a hundred grand a month.

john:

Gimme a one X return.

john:

You can literally do.

john:

Any channel, big spending clients are easy.

john:

You spend a hundred grand, something's going to work at least one x return.

john:

And that's a lot of times they're baseline.

john:

I got good enough.

john:

what I'm trying to do is develop a little bit more of a strategic way of

john:

thinking into saying, okay, I can't just spend a hundred K on YouTube, like one

john:

X return's gonna bankrupt our client.

john:

So we have to think about ways that we can get a little bit more creative

john:

in attracting a newer audience with.

john:

Segmented audience with a newer offer that is going to build that brand

john:

awareness, that becomes a higher L T V.

john:

Again, we've already established that we have this as a client,

john:

so we should have a good cag.

john:

We should have at least a decent L T V.

john:

We should have some expansion opportunities, and that's how

john:

we can move up the funnel.

john:

different offers to a segmented audience.

john:

With a, still a conversion based bidding strategy, so it learns.

john:

But YouTube and discovery with the feed are our biggest

john:

low hanging fruits right now.

john:

is what is working very, very, very well to those, cold traffic audiences.

john:

So much so that you see your overall m e r go up your media efficiency ratio.

john:

The more you push on discover and more you push on YouTube, make sure you're

john:

looking at overall metrics in the backend of the client's, Shopify or analytics.
