Lesson #3: How To Write Google Ads Copy For Competitive Keywords.
In order to beat the competition on Google Ads and get clicks, you need to differentiate yourself from the adjacent ads.
How? You want to be clear about how you are better than your competitors. At the same time, don’t try too hard…
Be honest about what your product can and can not do and who is designed for. In that way, bad-fit prospects can self-select out.
You can go as far as saying: “If you want A, pick Competitor X, but if you want B pick us.” On the one hand, it will be genuinely useful to potential customers. On the other hand you’ll avoid spending a lot of time and money on ineffective ads.
You don’t just want clicks, you want happy customers.
