We also have an Expanded Text Ads Excel Template to help you easily add all your ad mock ups in an excel sheet and evaluate the ones you should run or present to your management for decision making.


You can also make optimal use of our script that helps you track performance of ETAs compared to standard ads. With this AdWords script, you will easily be able to do the following:

  • Identify ad groups that do not have an active expanded text ad. These ad groups will be highlighted with red background for you already.
  • Identify ad groups where ETAs are underperforming standard ads on any of the key metric, such as CTR, CPC, Conversion Rate, etc.

After running your ads, you might want to know which ads are performing and which aren’t. We have an AdWords script that helps determine best and worst ads from your account. This script pulls ads performance data from your AdWords account and recommends one of the following – (a) You should pause the ads that are performing poorly. (b) You can pause all ads except the ones that are proven to be the winners. (c) You can reactivate some of your better performing ads.


So spearhead the process of creating ad mock up of your ads and get geared up to unravel your offering to your customers.
