Freelance

I offer PPC management services for AdWords and Bing Ads.

If you landed on this page directly instead of navigating here from some other part of my website, please take a look around. Read some of the stuff that I’ve written. I believe business partnerships are founded on shared values, so I want to make my values clear, allowing you to determine if they align with yours.

Business Values

Honesty. If a marketing strategy is doomed to fail, I’ll tell you it’s a bad idea. If performance is down for any given month, I won’t hide the fact behind irrelevant metrics. Not every day can be sunshine and rainbows. I’ll tell you the truth, good or bad.

Clarity. Unless you spend over $5,000 a month in combined media spend, my rates are easily visible further down this page (if your combined media spend is above that amount, I’ll need to customize a quote). There’s also a section on frequently asked questions. I like to be crystal clear with the services I offer so neither one of us ends up disappointed.

Transparency. You have full access to everything. I simply manage it for you. You’re free to leave and take it all with you at any time.

Results. The goal for any advertising campaign should be a positive return on your investment.

Frequently Asked Questions


Q: What’s your contract?

A: After we talk through the details I’ll send you a simple, one-page proposal of our agreement. It may be terminated by you or me with written notice, for any reason, at any time.


Q: Who owns the account(s)?

A: You do. Any tools and services that I help you set up and manage are entirely yours. I don’t like agencies that hold their client’s assets hostage. If and when you want to leave, you can easily take it all with you.


Q: When and how will I be billed?

A: On the first of the month, via PayPal.


Q: Are you AdWords certified or a Bing Ads accredited professional?

A: Yes to both.


Q: How quickly can I be up and running?

A: Typically two weeks, more or less depending on the size of the account, your responsiveness, and how particular you are about the messaging of yours ads.


Q: Who pays for advertising spend?

A: You pay Google and / or Bing directly for advertising spend. The same concept applies for any other paid tools or services (like call tracking software, for example).


Q: Why doesn’t your management fee include a percentage of media spend?

A: Because that’s a bad business practice. It encourages marketers to spend their client’s money, regardless if it’s well spent, because they profit more by doing so.

I want to manage your advertising budget responsibly. My fees are flat, so there’s no incentive for me to spend your money needlessly.


Q: Do you offer consulting services?

A: For the most part, no. I’m too strong of an introvert to be a consultant. If you would like me to review your account but want to avoid a contract, just pay for one month of management and notify me of your intent.
