#PPCChat Roundup Podcast🎙
This time I do only have one podcast episode announcement to make as I was on holiday the week of the 23rd so I didn't make a recording. However the wonderful team at Karooya did a blog post of that chat that was on the topic of What's on your mind in Google Ads, which was a Q&A session with Google's Ads Liaison Ginny Marvin. So go check it out.
Now last week, when I got back, we had a chat about Programmatic Advertising. It was led by Julie Bacchini, but she was joined by not just one but two programmatic experts to help field questions - Marc Poirier AND Hélène Parker. Marc is the CEO of SoKlever - a programmatic agency and Hélène is a programmatic activation expert and host of the programmatic podcast the Programmatic Digest. They and several other experts shared their top tips on Programmatic, how to test, biggest challenges and frustrations to look out for and more.
Tim Halloran gave a great overview of what Programmatic is to him:
Marc shared his biggest challenge working on programmatic:
And Hélène highlighted the importance of transparency:
And that's our two topics for the past week. Please do go check out those episodes - there is a lot to learn from them. If you have listened to more than 30 seconds of them, why don’t you take 5 seconds of your time to leave a rating/review?

PPC Live UK🗣
Our third PPC Live UK event is only just over two weeks away! 😱🥳🤗 As you will notice in the image above we secured a headline sponsor Diginius.
Diginius is a London-based SaaS technology company specialising in digital marketing and e-commerce solutions. They provide automated technology including advertising management software that monitors, measures, and reports results across digital performance, delivering visibility and transparency for all.
Compared to our first event, we now have x3 of the budget so there will be even more pizza, drinks, festive snacks, and PLU merch for prizes.
And this is on top of our four amazing in-person speaker lineup - Petya Yildizgoren, Nicolas Huber, Carolina Torres, and Russell McAthy. We’ll be talking about benefiting from broad match, account structure best practices for B2B, bidding profitably, and working towards increasing customer lifetime value.
Yes - we've got a great headline sponsor but if you want to partner with us and learn more please reply to this newsletter if you want to find out more.
For the rest of you, there’s nothing more to do than to get your £16 ticket to the fabulous line-up we are going to get. Tickets are selling fast! 130 tickets is the number to beat. ;)
