Three Is A Magic Number

Three is a magic number, and G.I. Joe was right.

I just thought you should know.

This Week's Growth Tip

If your ad campaign is not performing and the leads are bad, you are wasting money and losing the fight.

Stop throwing good money at bad.

Sometimes it’s better to tap out (Fight Club) or retreat (G.I. Joe) to save your @$$ (ADS).

Just because you’ve invested time and money into something bad doesn’t mean you should keep doing it because you think it’ll suddenly turn good.

So before you stop or continue, you should know the three magical parts that make up your Quality Score.

Like G.I. Joe said, “Knowing is half the battle.”

Three Parts To Your Quality Score

  1. Expected ClickThrough Rate (CTR): The likelihood that your ad will be clicked when shown.
  2. Ad Relevance: How closely your ad matches the intent behind a user’s search.
  3. Landing Page Experience: How relevant and useful your landing page is to people who click your ad.

We’ll dive into more of these over the coming weeks, but knowing these three magic parts is half the battle.
