You’re ready to use Google Ads to get customers
Google Ads is the system you use so that people searching on Google can find your business. QuickStart helps you use the most important features of Google Ads without the months of learning and effort that would normally be required.
The QuickStart will help you create a great campaign, and load it into your account, in just a few minutes. It combines a clear and logical campaign template with a very intuitive interface for entering and managing your campaign information.
Do you need to know Google Ads?
Yes. Sort of. A review of the “Google Ads Fundamentals” section of this user guide will give you a pretty good idea of what you need to know and also provides some good sources for you to get up to speed if you need some help.
A very important part of the QuickStart design is to help you be successful with search marketing WHILE YOU ARE LEARNING. (Without spending a ton of time or money). So dive in and see how it goes. You might be pleasantly surprised how well you can do at it while you’re learning.
Where should you start?
If you want to skip the reading for now, just signup with your email address and go to the Project List page.
From there you will have full access to the application and the project list, including the examples. The fastest way to familiarize yourself with the QuickStart is to look at some campaigns created for businesses that you are familiar with. We created eight example projects so you can do exactly that.
This user guide has a lot of valuable information, however, reading it is NOT required to get started. If you have certain questions about the Ads QuickStart, maybe we’ve got some answers:
- If you’re wondering: Why you should be excited about Google search marketing – start with “Google Ads Fundamentals”.
- If you’re wondering: What is the Ads QuickStart all about? – start with the “QuickStart Vision”.
- If you’re wondering: Who are these guys? – start with “About Us”.
- If you want to see examples using the QuickStart, then signup with your email and go to the “Project List” page.
- Otherwise? Please keep reading.
Understanding how the QuickStart works
It is easy to understand how the QuickStart works. All of the functionality is contained in the job of creating and modifying “projects”. A project is just a campaign design that you can store, modify, and reuse. Projects have a 20 character name and a 60 character description that you can assign or update at any time.
Within a project, campaign information is contained in the four “tabs”: Settings, Locations, Keywords, and Ads. Once you’ve entered some or all of your campaign information into those four tabs, you can use the “Review” tab to see your campaign and ads in detail. Then, when you’re satisfied, you can use the “Export” tab to load your campaign into Google Ads Editor.
It is that easy.
You will need a Google Ads Account and Editor
When you are ready to actually start showing your ads on Google, you will (of course) need a Google Ads account.You will also need to use the Ads Editor software. Editor is how the QuickStart transfers complete sets of campaigns into your account. We encourage you to and try it out.
If you have never used a Google Ads account, please set up your account and take a couple of hours to familiarize yourself with how it works. It is attached to a Google ID (or email account) and you’ll have to enter some basic information about yourself and the business you support.
We highly recommend that you set up a test account – separate from production – so you can test new campaigns without interfering with your production account.
When you sign up with your email/password, you are using the full QuickStart system for no charge. You can continue to do that until you have performed ten “Exports to Editor”. That’s the button located on the “Exports” tab that creates an ECF (Editor compatible file) that can be loaded into Google Ads Editor.
In order to continue to use the Export feature (after the initial 10 free), you will be asked to “subscribe” for a period of 30, 60, or 90 days, at a cost of $250, $450, and $600, respectively. That license grants ONE INDIVIDUAL USER the ability to perform as many exports as they require. This individual license is a strict requirement of using the software and violators will not be granted access to the software.
This license period is referred to as “subscribing”, however, you are only charged once for the period you are subscribing for and there are NO RECURRING CHARGES. Your payment information is not stored or re-used. Period.
Support is the best part of our system
We get questions that range from campaign design, to keyword recommendations, to performance measurement, to – whatever. We love the challenge of trying to help you be successful. The more of your questions we can answer well, the more valuable our company becomes. We know a LOT about Google Ads search campaigns, Google Ads Editor, and other relevant tools like Excel.
Bottom line: If you’re trying to use our software, we should be helping.
We are here to provide you the best software and the best support we can possibly provide. We are NOT here to “gather information” from you.
The most important feature of the QS is the ability to export your project and import it into Google Ads Editor without you having to “hook up” your Google Ads to anybody’s external systems. You retain complete control over your account and any changes made to it.
