Navigating Google Ads can be a minefield; there’s a lot to learn and one small error is as wasteful as simply flushing your money.
If you plan to launch Google Ads and are unsure what you’re doing, take a step back and consider working with an agency.
Perhaps you already have?
If you’re on the lookout for an agency and you’re wondering how to choose an agency for your Google Ads Management, here’s some great advice to make sure you pick one that will do the job right, won’t overcharge and won’t bombard you with data so you’re too overwhelmed to ask questions.
Let’s take a look…
What are Google Ads?
First off, we’ll quickly explain what Google Ads are for the newbies in the room.
Google Ads are the paid spots at the top, bottom, or side in search results. Other search engines are available, but due to their popularity we’re going to focus solely on Google and let’s face it, that’s what you’re here for anyway.
Below is a screenshot of an example indicating where ads are placed and how to spot them against organic listings that don’t have ‘Ad’ in their result.
All the content in these listings has been provided by the business to indicate to users searching applicable keywords in their campaign that this is the URL they want.
“If you’re looking for a hotel in Melbourne look no further, you’ve found it and here’s why we’re special” etc.
How can Google Ads help a business?
“Google Ads is one of the most powerful digital advertising channels which encompasses search, display, shopping and video.” source
Google Ads are a great way to market a business because you can:
- Target lower down the funnel, at customers that are ready to buy/sign up
- Edit content and see immediate changes (as opposed to organic that takes time)
- Control and schedule content changes to promote short-term events/offers
- Get your brand/business to top of Google very quickly (as opposed to organic that takes time
So, what’s the problem? It sounds great, right?
Yes, but your campaign/s needs to be set up and optimised or else you can be in serious danger of metaphorically lighting a wad of cash on fire.
The way to ensure you run a successful Google Ads campaign is with excellent Google ads management. If you’re new to Google Ads and aren’t sure how to do that, then opting to work through a Google Ads Agency is an excellent option.
What is a Google Ads Agency?
A Google Ads Agency is typically a digital marketing agency that can build, run and optimise your Google Ads campaigns for you.
They’ll do this through:
- Keyword research
- Competitor research
- Strategy and planning
- Managing KPIs
With the growth of digital marketing across the globe, digital marketing agencies have sprung up across cities and towns, but finding the right one for you can be a tricky prospect.
You need to make sure you find a Google Ads management agency that will look after your interests, listen to your needs, measure your selected KPIs, and more importantly – provide a positive return on investment.
So, how do you find the right Google Ads Agency for you?

Beware – searching ‘Google Ads Agency in Melbourne’ is going to result in a lot of companies, particularly aggressive agencies running their own Google Ads campaigns on that keyword. You’ll be bombarded with agencies – so which one do you pick?

The best way to do that is through an aggregator. There are marketing agency review aggregators out there and 2 of the best ones are:
