Learn About Managing Paid Search Accounts In-House

9:00 am in Marketing Nirvana, PPC Marketing Blog by brad

Paid Search accounts are managed differently based upon if they are in-house or through an agency.

Agencies and in-house marketers have different reporting channels, stakeholders, and budget justifications.

One of my favorite in-house managers is Purna Virgi. When I first met Purna, many years ago, she was focused on paid search. Over the years, she has been so successful that she now manages a wide range of projects and initiatives at Stroll, one of the top language software companies in the world.

On this episode of Marketing Nirvana, Purna and I discuss both challenges and solutions of in-house PPC management.

We cover such topics as:

  • In-House vs Outsourcing all or part of traffic acquisition
  • Monitoring and working with vendors
  • In-house knowledge required to work well with vendors
  • In-house communication
  • Expectation setting for vendors and management
  • Getting management buy-in
  • Delivering good & bad news to management
  • And quite a bit more

You can easily connect with Purna on:

Purna also did a great presentation on In-House management at SMX, which I’ve embedded below.
