BRIEF DESCRIPTION

Brief Intro

mathews mechanical

In August of 1991, Jeff Mathews opened a small, garage-based business with a simple mission: he wanted to help people solve their problems. Since then, Mathews Mechanical has grown from a one-man operation into a premier industrial maintenance, repair, and custom fabrication shop. We’ve built an exceptional team of experienced engineers, service technicians, welders, fabricators, and salesmen, all supported by a knowledgeable and friendly administrative staff.

Customer satisfaction is our first priority, and one of the main reasons for our 20+ years of success! We offer high quality products and services at competitive prices.

The
Challenges


  • Click through rate was very low at 0.39% (CTR) which was hurting the keyword quality scores and overall account performance.
     

  • There were few goals and conversions setup on the account which makes it difficult to tell if indeed the campaign is working or not.

  • Campaigns and Ad Groups were very broad and not targeted.
     

  • The average Ad position is not that good with an average of 4.8 which in theory would put the Ad on the right side of the search results. That being said, it would be difficult to get a click.

  • There were no Negative Keywords added on the campaigns which gives a lot of wasted clicks and eventually making the campaign lose money and not getting enough conversions.

  • Conversion rate is way too low at 0 conversions for the month of March 2015.

The
Solutions


  • Optimized keywords, ads, and targeting to get click through rates up to 2.91% (well above Google’s 1% CTR) at the same time improving the ad position to 3.

  • Once we installed the proper tracking codes, we increased conversions by 678%.

  • We created themed Ad Groups and Campaigns which generated quality clicks and increased our click through rate by over 900%.

  • We made sure that the keywords are relevant to their associated Ad Groups, relevance of the ad text, and landing page relevancy.
     

  • We added negative keywords on the campaigns to make sure Ad does not appear on irrelevant keywords which resulted into quality clicks.

  • Wrote better Ads for better CTR and making sure that the landing pages are relevant gradually increased the conversion rate by 610%.
