Investing in Google Ads is a smart move as it allows you to send targeted traffic to your website instantly. If you’re spending more than $500/month on clicks (which most brands should in order to gain some traction) then it’s also highly worthwhile investing in Google Ads Management. Simply setting it up yourself and letting it run can result in your budget getting chewed up quickly by underperforming keywords and ad copy that doesn’t resonate with potential customers or maintains consistency with the landing page they are sent to.

Ads management will not only setup and maintain your account, but provide a lot of data around performance, so you can make the best decisions for the campaign. Here is some information on how to read that data.
