If you have encountered ads that are underperforming, it can be frustrating to not see a return on investment. Even after giving your account proper time to optimize, there are a few common reasons for underperformance that can hinder your success.
1. Your Campaign and Website Pages Are Not Aligning
Be sure that when linking your ads, they direct to a specific landing page for consumers to easily convert. The home page has all the generic information about the business, but a landing page is better optimized and customizable for conversions. Once you have an established landing page, make sure that your campaign descriptions, headlines, and landing pages have seamless messaging that all compliments each other. This allows for a consumer to resonate with your service or products all the way from web searches, clicking on the ad, and through the website experience.
2. Call to Action is Not Clear
The call to action in your ad needs to match up with the ad copy, along with a relevant landing page. Be sure to show the benefit of your product or service, how you differ from competitors, and implement an easy process for customers to move through the purchase funnel of awareness, interest desire, + action.
3. Budget Is Constrained
Having a low budget that is less than the recommended amount can prevent you from getting traffic. Make sure you are allocating at least $20/day PER campaign to be able to scale and optimize your campaigns properly.
