Recent Results

Check out some of the results I've got for clients recently.


Covidence’s leads have increased about 4 fold since we started working together 2 and a half years ago.

They haven’t increased their budget. We've actually reduced it over the last 2.5 years.

Te Pari’s Return On Ad Spend (ROAS) has steadily increased since we started working together 3 years ago. And has seen about a 5 fold increase.

Here's how their Conversions (which for this client is Leads) has gone. From when we started to their peak month, they have seen about a 7 fold increase.

Here's their Cost. Over the last 3 years we have increased their budget by about 2 fold. This is mainly due to the good results we were seeing.

No lock-in contracts

I’d rather get you good results, and that be the reason you want to stay! 

Direct line to the person who works on your account

If you call or email, I’ll be the person at the other end. 

Month-to-month arrangements

Pay monthly. And if you don’t like how it’s going, it’s fine to leave whenever you want.
No harm, no foul, no hard feelings.  

Full access to your account

Login whenever you want. And if you don’t have an account I’ll help you set up one that will be yours. I have never ‘owned’ a clients account, and never want to. 

I’m not going anywhere

I’m the one you’ll deal with now, 6 months from now, and 2 years from now.

Click fraud blocking

Got a click fraud problem? I can set up click fraud software for you if you like. 
I can do Click Cease or PPC Secure. 

My monthly reports are in a Google Doc (gasp!). That’s right, no fancy software for me. 

I've tried a bunch of software tools, they all made things look more confusing than they needed to be.

I have a number of clients who have got great results with Shopping ads. It doesn't work for everyone, but if you sell a product online it's definitely worth testing alongside regular Search ads in my opinion.

Performance Max campaigns are a recent invention from Google, and you can incorporate Shopping ads into Performance Max campaigns.  

A lot of people seem to be getting great results from Performance Max. Many of my clients are.

Although I would say it's clients with larger budgets that seem to be getting the best results here, and some clients with smaller budgets seem to struggle sometimes (in which case it makes more sense to use traditional Shopping ads). 

Display ads used to be a great way to waste money. But in the last couple of years, Google’s algorithms have got better and better.

And now display ads work well for a number of my clients.


For example, after chipping away at it, Te Pari are now getting a Return On Ad Spend (ROAS) of about 55-60x from their display ads.

There are a lot of businesses who are only do search ads because that's what they have always done.

Some might have tried display ads in the past, and perhaps found it didn't work.

But it's worth thinking about testing it. Google have come a long way in this space and there's a good chance you'll get better results this time around.

Video ads used to be only for big companies, and online gurus telling you to quit your day job.

But now it’s becoming more and more popular with everyday businesses.

I even had one of my dentist clients try it out this year is his local town, and it worked really well.

Another client, Te Pari, are getting really good results through video ads.

This year, they got a Return On Ad Spend (ROAS) of 36x for all their video ads.

That’s better than then 26x they got for their search ads for the year (38% better in fact).

A lot of your Google Ads content can be imported into Microsoft Ads, which makes things a lot easier.

Bing only has about a 4% market share in New Zealand.  So for some small businesses it’s not worth the additional effort and expense. 

But if you target major cities, or all of New Zealand then it might be worth testing.

If you run ads internationally, it’s definitely worth testing. And in many cases the cost is lower than Google.

For example, Covidence run Microsoft Ads in 130 countries, and the Cost Per Lead is about 30% lower than Google Ads.  This means that for every $1,000 they get 42% more leads from Bing than Google.

Check out my pricing plans.


I’m more than happy to review your account for free and tell you what I think.
