Avoid generic sales language. Use specific and relatable calls

Phrases like "call us today" create a false sense of urgency. Keep the user benefit in mind.

If there really isn't a benefit to the user, well, why would they even call today? Non-specific or generic calls to action, such as "'sign up today" or "book today" often show decreased engagement with ads.

Imagine you're writing copy for a property management company. Instead of writing "book now" in the ad, write "book your dream vacation rental." This is more specific and relates more closely to what the potential customer desires.

Optimize your landing page.

The ad and landing page work together to provide a great user experience.

You should compare your keywords to the copy on the landing page and its overall user experience. The exact keywords don't need to be on the landing page, but the relevancy should be clear right away.

Like, ask yourself questions such as,

  • How useful is the landing page to someone who clicks on the ad?
  • Is the page well organized?
  • Does the text relate to someone's search terms?
  • Is the landing page clear in its directions?

Ensure it loads quickly. If page loads take too long, users may get frustrated and leave the page.
