Adwords Freelancer Costs Small Business UK Nationwide

I’m going to get right to brass tasks and prices. The reason for this is because many SME’s and Small Businesses think that learning DIY Google Ads will save them a monthly maintenance fee.

£10/day – The minimum Google Ads spend is £3,600/year. Most eCommerce clients spend £12,000+ but if you do not sell online then you are not paying for sales/clients, you are paying for enquiries only! It’s up to you if you get 10 enquiries a month but only convert 2 of them to clients.

You should really be Google certified to use Google Ads and the best news is that it’s free, but the bad news is taking that certification takes weeks if not months to study and learn. Hiring a Freelancer is not a short cut for not taking the Google certification.

Google Ads Are Not Right For 70% Of Websites

You’re searching for ‘Adwords training’ and first of all I’ll slap you round the face with a wet fish of all the bad news and the high costs .. why you should choose to pay for SEO instead.

  • The minimum Google Ads spend is £10/day, so £300/month.
  • This doesn’t take into account the £130-£200 account setup fee
  • Google Ads do not help SEO organic natural rankings
  • Google Ads works best for eCommerce websites with a minimum spend of £110
  • Local businesses (Wedding photographer, carpet cleaning, dog walking) cannot afford the cost of hiring a freelancer to setup their account, create the ads, write the landing page and conduct keyword research
  • SEO is cheaper than Google Ads but a longer term investment

In this SEO Consultation YouTube Video, I explain how this Wedding Photography client wasted 12 months of Google ads spending just £125 in a year.
