4 - Test, test, and then test some more! The key to maximizing ROI of any ad campaign is testing, and PPC is no different. Set up test campaigns using various keywords/phrases and different ad copy. Analyze results after a few days, and then drop ads that perform poorly and expand ones that do well.
5 - Experiment with bid prices for your keywords. For example, you might well find that a bid of $0.35 results in almost as many clicks (and customers) as a bid of $0.55! This means you save 20 cents on each and every click! Remember, your ad doesn't have to be displayed in top position for it to be effective.
