#PPCChat Roundup Podcast🎙
Thrilled to give you the lowdown on our last couple of episodes. Two weeks ago, as it fell on Thanksgiving week, we got cheesy on the community and talked about what we were thankful for in PPC. No usual rants this time about Google Ads and their many updates or how Meta business manager can be so slow, or sales reps just asking you to push auto recommendations. We took time to mention how they do add to our jobs.
Ashton is grateful for his clients:
Duane Brown is thankful for support docs:
Boris shared everyone's sentiment in being grateful for this community:
Then with the support of Akvile DeFazio we chatted about Q5 Paid Social tactics to successfully wrap up the year. What is Q5, I hear you ask? Well - this chat was the first time I figured it out myself. It's used to describe the last week of the year because most of the high-intent shopping does kinda end once you're full up of turkey on Christmas day. But there were lots of tips shared because searchers will keep searching.
Akvile reckons it's a great time to entice people who may be unhappy with their gifts:
Another great advice from Boris - get in when your competitor decides to drop the ball:
And Sam suggest to take opportunity of people who got money as gift!:
And that's our two topics for the past fortnight. 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?
How to report on PPC to a CMO - PPC Live UK
PPC Live UK🗣
Our third PPC Live UK event (and the last one of the year) was a huge success!🥳🤗 I am so grateful to all who attended. But I'm sure you know how this works now - the next one has been planned.
All I can say is that I am floored that the quality of speakers keeps on increasing every time I do this. On February the 2nd, we will have Maddie Crawford, Azeem Ahmad, Tiffany Shears and Sophie Logan (of Victress) all speaking!! They are not only all speakers who have graced the brightonSEO stage, but Azeem's podcast Azeem Digital Asks Podcast is a top 10 rated podcast. Really - this is making me countdown to 2023 a lot more urgently. Haha
At this stage, we are looking for brilliant partners to sponsor this event so we can continue to bring this brilliant and unique event to our community. It would also be great to get the word out there that this sort of event exists! Therefore, I am seeking opportunities to get our story into reputable publications. A black female-led industry event that has successfully run three events so far - someone for sure must be interested in hearing about and writing about that, right? If you know of anyone or have tips on how to do that, please do get in touch.
Finally, watch the review of the last event and then get your £16 ticket to the fabulous line-up before it's too late. 😉
That brings us to the end of the fun happenings in my PPC world and beyond over the past few weeks.
