Define an initial budget
After specifying your Gmail account and your website, the platform will show you a new window where you have to configure “your first campaign”. To do this, let’s start by defining an initial budget that is one of the four options that this section contains.
In this way, we indicate that the budget is based on the investment you make daily in the campaign. As you can see, the first position is entitled “Establish your daily budget” and when you click on that choice, you will be asked to determine how much you want or you can invest half a day. Where they also tell you that I only pay when a user clicks on your ad.

You must bear in mind that the minimum investment is 0.02 euros; If later you want to increase this amount, you can modify it without any inconvenience (this should be adjusted as the campaign progresses).
Now, what can not be changed in any way is the currency that you once set. Finally, click on the “Save” button and with this, you have already established your initial budget.
Bid for the most relevant keywords for your business
While it is true, the keywords on any website are estimated as a completely essential aspect to attract customers and position themselves in the first places.
That is, it is one of the most used and beneficial strategies to become a business of great renown within your sector in the online world.

There, you can see two options; in the first they indicate “AdWords automatically establishes your bids to get as many clicks as possible without exceeding the budget” but as you know, this service does not have the same vision as you regarding the objectives of your business.
On the contrary, you know what you want to achieve through your ads and you know perfectly the criterion that most favors your company around the billing. That is why, we advise you to choose the second option, where you can set your bids manually. Which is also specified in the currency indicated above (in this case the euro).

Another system of advertising of the technological company is remarketing, which can “persecute” users who visit your website and thus, display fully customized ads to each of them, depending on their preferences and on each occasion to navigate within the Google Display network.
This method is used to reinforce the image of the company and achieve re-impact to each of the users who have visited you at the time and so far, do not decide to buy your products or services.

How much does it cost to buy and publish an ad or advertising campaign on Google?
Previously, it used to be paid for every 1000 impressions but thanks to the payment method that Google Ads has implemented and which is known as “CPC” or “Cost Per Click”, this is much simpler and more beneficial. In principle, because you only have to pay each time they enter your ad.
In effect, it is essential to understand the functioning of the CPC system and we affirm that it is focused on the key words that you once included in your campaign, after creating the account.
In this way, when each user types one of those words in the Google search engine and your ad is shown, many will choose to click on it and likewise, you only cancel a fee based on those that you bid for that word (also specified in the steps to follow when you create and adjust your Ads account).
For example, if your keyword is “black bag” and you have established a bid of 1.50 euros and the second one is of 1.30 euros; You will have to pay around 1.32 euros when you click on your ad. Which means you have to cancel an estimated 82% of your bid.
