Cut Down The Time You Spend On Reporting With Adzooma

Why do you need reports?

The only way to know if your online advertising is successful is to look at the data.

But with all the information available, things can quickly become a minefield of numbers and it can be difficult to find those key metrics.

Reports are a great way of seeing how things are going at-a-glance.

Why are reports time-consuming?

Reports help you view, organise and share large amounts of data with clients and colleagues. But if you have a lot of people to show data to, then your time can quickly disappear.

Also, copying data into spreadsheets is an easy way to introduce errors. These are then really difficult to find and fix, costing you even more time.

How do you make reporting easy?

The simplest way to avoid all these problems is to automate as much as possible. That’s where the free Adzooma software can help: build custom reports with information that’s pulled directly from your ad account, meaning it’s all accurate.

You can include bar charts, pie charts, line graphs, tables and much more to present data in the best way possible. Add any logo and save things ready for next time.

The funnel performance report provides you with an at-a-glance view of how your online advertising is performing at every single level. It gives you insights on your total spend, impressions generated, click-through rates, conversion rates, and CPA (Cost Per Action).

The best part is that once you’ve saved the report, you can just go back in and re-run it whenever you need. This means whenever you need to update your colleagues or clients with the latest data, you’re just a few clicks away from having everything ready.

Create your first report in just a few minutes.

Reporting what’s important

A common problem with PPC reports is that they showcase the wrong things. Often vanity metrics are included: data which paints a rosier picture than is really true.

For instance, a report may show that a campaign has a high click-through rate. Great! But what does that actually mean for a business owner? Well, if there’s a high CTR but people are leaving the page as soon as they arrive, things aren’t actually going well. So there’s no reason to celebrate that data if it’s not the whole story.

You need to focus on the key metrics of the whole account and use the report to assess the overall performance of things. You can’t do that with skewed or incorrect data. So, make sure your reports are full of the right information.

By ditching the spreadsheets and using clear charts and tables to compare different aspects of each account, you can cut down the time spent creating and analysing reports.
