The Pain Points:
After spending months trying to run their Google Ads campaigns by themselves, the Truck Driving Academy came to NDMR with a PPC campaign that was driving and an overwhelming number of unqualified traffic to their website. Rightfully so, the Truck Driving Academy thought that for their allotted Paid Search budget, they should be garnishing far more qualified traffic and leads funneled to their site.
The Truck Driving Academy tasked NDMR with the goal of increasing qualified clicks, calls, and conversions while maintaining the same monthly budget.
Together, we achieved just that.

How NDMR Exceeded Their PPC Goals:
The initial step, as we do for all clients looking for PPC help, was to conduct a comprehensive audit. Included in this audit is: understanding client goals, keyword research, researching estimated cost-per-click, researching competitors, and finding the best PPC platform to fit the client’s goals and budget.
Our deep-dive audit highlights the pain points and helps us discover what PPC elements will successfully meet and, possibly exceed PPC goals.
Once we have determined what our best PPC route is, we begin building our campaign. Keeping budget and goals in mind, we begin by structuring the campaign by campaign type, optimizing location targets, researching bidding strategies, and creating ads.
By optimizing our keywords, location targets, bidding strategy, and ad creatives, we were able to increase call conversions by +2,000%, decrease overall cost by -25.60%, and decrease cost-per-call by -69.45%.
