Webrageous Studios wants to make sure that you have more than one way of approaching the writing of good advertisement text to choose from. So, read the first article in this series” first and then come back to this article to read the alternative approach to generating effective advertisement copy printed below.
In this way, you’ll be able to decide which approach works best for you, your website and your PPC campaign.
The first thing to consider is that your headline should include the keyword that best fits your product, service or whatever it is that you are advertising AS WELL AS the keyword that draws in the most amount of traffic. As you experiment with your advertisement text, take note of the keyword that generates the highest CTR and stick with that one.
You should then surround that keyword with extra words that are going to help your headline to stand out from the crowd.

The body of the advertisement text should include a feature of what you are trying to sell. The advertisement must be concentrated. An advertisement that is vague and that tries to cover everything that you do or sell via your website is not going to work, ever!
Therefore, consider what it is that you are truly trying to sell through this advertisement in particular. Examples of possible features could be:
- Prices: Learn to write effective advertisement text for US$50
- Percentages: 50% increase in CTR thanks to improved advertisement text
- Celebrities: Matt Cutts’ seminar on writing effective advertisement text
- Product specifications: Free advertisement text course for beginners
If there is no call-to-action then your advertisement text is worthless. In fact, it is NOT advertisement text. It is simply “text” without a purpose. Remember that you are trying to sell something through your advertisement text, therefore…
USE A CALL-TO-ACTION IN ORDER TO MAKE THE SALE!
With this in mind, use the second line of your advertisement description to include a call-to-action or some kind of benefit that the internet user will receive if making the conversion. Ask yourself…
WHAT IS THE INTERNET USER GOING TO GET BY CLICKING ON MY ADVERTISEMENT?
Words like buy, order now, watch, see, look at, download, sign-up to receive are all excellent examples of call-to-action words that should be utilized in the second line of the advertisement text body in any advertisement you create.

Google does have some rules regarding the use of Display URLs. These rules ensure that the internet user is always aware of where they will be taken to if clicking on your advertisement and these rules must be obeyed. However, the most important thing to remember is that as long as the same domain name is used, the rest of the Display URL can be used to work in your favor.
Essentially, what this means is that you can use your domain name followed by one of your most effective keywords as your Display URL. You don’t even need to include “http://” or “www” either, which gives you a lot more character space to play with too.
