Boston, MA (PRWEB) September 13, 2017
WordStream Inc., a provider of online advertising software and services, has just announced an exciting new contest for small businesses currently advertising on Google AdWords; it’s called “Grade and Get Paid,” and it gives PPC advertisers the opportunity to parlay WordStream’s unique account diagnostics and suggested optimizations into cold hard cash.
WordStream’s AdWords Performance Grader, a free tool that assesses an AdWords account’s successes and failures based on 11 key performance indicators, has been run over 1 million times, analyzing over $9 billion in unique ad spend. This data is used to provide valuable and prescriptive account analysis to advertisers across the globe, and it powers the Grade and Get Paid challenge.
The $25,000 PPC Challenge doesn’t just help advertisers uncover new opportunities within their accounts, though; the advertiser who implements the AdWords Performance Grader’s advice to drive the greatest degree of improvement within 30 days will win $25,000 in AdWords spend (and an annual subscription to WordStream Advisor software) to take their PPC campaigns to the next level in 2018.
How Does It Work?
Entering the contest is easy: Just use WordStream’s AdWords Performance Grader between September 12 and November 12, 2017. In addition to the report typically generated after a Grader run, entrants will be asked to answer two simple questions:
· What did you learn about your AdWords account performance?
· Based on the insights surfaced by the AdWords Performance Grader, what will you do differently?
Thirty days from the date of entry, a second performance report will be generated and automatically emailed to the entrant. On December 11, 2017, the Grand Prize—$25,000 in AdWords spend and a free 12-month subscription to WordStream Advisor—will be awarded to the account with the greatest percentage of improvement in the combined categories of Search Click-Through Rate and Impression Weighted Average Quality Score.
Eligibility & Restrictions
“The $25,000 PPC Challenge: Grade and Get Paid” contest is open to advertisers in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada (excluding Quebec).
