Adwords Proposal Template

Campaign Development & Management

Attract more corporate leads for your law firm with an effective Adwords strategy.

Prepared for Smith & Matthews by the marketing nerds at Pivotal Marketing on 19.09.18

Customers are searching Google for business lawyers.

Make sure your business shows up first.

Dear Smith & Matthews

During our initial discovery meeting, you mentioned that your firm’s marketing strategy is currently bringing in low-converting, low revenue leads. As we discussed, we believe that a more focused PPC strategy, delivered through Google Adwords, will enable your firm to gain targeted website traffic around business law services, which have been identified as much more lucrative accounts..

Below, you'll learn all about our process, including all elements involved in campaign setup, management, and evaluation. Thank you for your consideration and we look forward to the chance to help you attract better quality leads!

Situation Analysis

Smith & Matthews' online marketing efforts are currently not performing at the desired level because of these reasons:

  • Leads are converting for less profitable services
  • Vague targeting strategies are leading to low conversion rates across the board
  • Little to none website traffic coming in for business & corporate legal services
  • We will solve these problems through an effective Google Adwords campaign that:

  • Specifically excludes low revenue search terms
  • Target specific geographical areas with business owners, higher annual household incomes and enterprise-level clients
  • Build focused, long-tail ad campaigns around business and corporate law
  • Preliminary Analysis

    Campaign Setup

    Let's take a look at how we build a rockstar ad campaign

    Market Research & Campaign Tracking

    Before we do anything else, we will conduct a full day of market research, looking at your target customer profiles for your law firm and pairing that with a comprehensive keyword research deliverable in order to confidently know which ads we will be delivering to which future customers. We will research by specific areas with higher household income as well as corporate areas to ensure that we are building a thorough campaign strategy. We will also need to collaborate with your web team to set up conversion pixels and goals through Google Analytics.


    After our research is complete, our team will spend another full day building out all your firm’s ad groups, ad types, ad sets and individual ads themselves. Different audiences will be grouped together based on similar characteristics so that each ad shown is as relevant as possible. This saves you money, improves your conversion rate, and gives you insight into which ads and audiences are performing the best.


    We will then have our copywriters curate perfectly persuasive messages for each audience and ad segment to yet again maximize relevancy and clickthrough rates. We will implement specific language that will draw in relevant clicks for business and corporate law services and weed out the time-wasting “curiosity clicks” currently plaguing the firm.

    Campaign Management

    Here's how we'll maximize every single dollar invested in this campaign

    Bid Optimization

    Our management team will review your campaign performance in real time. Ads that are performing well for your firm’s high revenue services will see increases in their budget allocation, while poor performers will be reduced or even eliminated. Bid optimization will occur across all ad channels, audiences, and keywords.

    Keyword Review

    Specific attention will be given to keyword performance throughout the campaign. Successful keywords for your firm’s campaign will be extensively researched to find even more long-tail variations, with attention given to shorthand and conversational search terms.

    Performance Tracking

    We will be watching this campaign all the way through, not just on the front end. We will be constantly monitoring your Google Analytics website goals to find out which ads are driving the most leads for your law firm, and building an ongoing strategy around these winning campaigns.

    Campaign Evaluation

    We'll figure out what's working and strategically scale

    Funnel Analysis

    Every week we will take a high-level look at all campaign components. We will track visitor behavior at each stage of your product funnel and determine where the most optimization can occur. We will ensure that the majority of leads entering the funnel are interested in your firm’s corporate law services and that they are converting into clients at a sustainable rate.

    Mastered Innovation

    Why hire Adwords experts instead of keeping everything in-house? Two words: Experience and innovation. We have run hundreds of campaigns, so spending a small amount of your ad spend to make sure your budget gets maximized is a no-brainer. We have managed law firm accounts in the past and currently have an opening to manage your ads (we only manage one client in one local market at a time to avoid conflict of interest).

    Jake R., CEO of Three Rivers Lumber Supply

    Pivotal Marketing has been a trusted partner for our Adwords campaigns. We know they are always watching, evaluating and tweaking our campaigns. There has been speculation among our staff that they don't actually sleep, though.

    Jacquelyn J., CMO of Business Bankers of Omaha

    I am mostly impressed with the depth of analytical understanding the team at Pivotal Marketing demonstrates. I knew how to set up a basic Adwords campaign, but these guys knew how to dig deeper to really find that profitable low-hanging fruit.

    Josh R., Owner of Rhinestone Consulting

    I have a very specific target market that is often times hard to pin down. That was not the case for Pivotal Marketing. They have been running my campaigns for 3 years now due to their ability to listen, understand and execute on my behalf.

    We are a Google Certified Partner who has helped many happy clients!
