EP 087 | Google Ads with Faith Sheridan



About this Episode

Ever thought about placing a Google ad to attract the right clients? Seattle interior designer Faith Sheridan did more than that—she placed the ad…and it worked! Lucky for us, she’s sharing everything she’s learned in the process.

In this episode we learn:

  • it’s worth trying something new when you feel you hit a slump
  • negative key words (terms you do not want clients to find you through) are as important as key words
  • you will set a budget and the ad will run until your budget is used
  • prior to placing ads, consider who your ideal client is and target that person specifically
  • transparency with fees drives the right customers your way
  • quality is more important than quantity when it comes to ad hits
  • use any software you like—it’s a tool—you will still need systems and procedures

Take Aways

Faith suggests joining Business of Design™ (we love her idea!) and emphasizes the value of open sharing with other professional designers. Find out more…
