Clever: Google Ads & Shopping , 2,508 reviews
Couple of clicks and a bunch of campaigns are automatically created with ad groups and ads. And you see instant increase in visitors if you are currently not advertising using Google Adwords. The easy of setting this up is cool.
All the ads created are using your collection names, images, logo, etc. They are not targeted and is very very generic. So all you get is lots of hits but no traction. It's like slinging mud on the wall and praying that some will stick.
Gave it another shot after an employee of clever adwords reached out saying they would personally modify my campaign. Here I am again after a week, the modified campaign got me a whopping 3 clicks and 82 impressions.
Once again I have to reiterate, maybe this thing can work if you have a generic product with a common search word like soap, cars, or something. But for something niche this app is seemingly worthless. I will give it 1 extra star for the decent customer service though.
Surprised at how many 5-star reviews they had until I signed up myself and saw that they give away the 'Premium' version of this product after an immediate review. As most people have never used this application when then leave the review I can now see why so many talked about the setup and none of the actual service. I will leave a 2-star rating for now as I am not impressed with them 'buying' reviews, however, if the product works well then I will be back to improve my rating.
Hello, thanks for the review and we're sorry to hear this. We firstly ask for reviews because we are genuinely interested in the feedback of our customer base. At that time we were running a promo for the premium membership, however this is no longer a thing. We're sorry for the misunderstanding and if you have any further questions please feel free to reach out to us.
I gave 5 star rating before.
However, I upgraded to Premium Plan. I exhausted to communicate with their representative and no problem solved.
It is great for free but terrible in premium ...
I had my hopes up for this App based on reviews I had seen.. However, for anyone that understands Adwords this is not a good App. The ads were poorly structured, labeled and even went to the wrong URLs based on text. Will not recommend.
When you install this is creates very generic and ugly ads based around the names of your product categories. It then fills up your adwords with dozens of campaigns with hundreds of ads. I ran it for about a week and got zero results. Mostly it just really made my adwords dashboard very confusing. I decided to delete it and remove the ads.
Very easy to set up the campaign but the ad itself did not reflect the products at all. Still needs some works for the free version. I'm guessing if you use the paid version it could be worth it.
Imm giving the adwords an opportunity to fix my adowrds problems nbefore i update this review.
Generates off the wall keywords. I wouldn't recommend at this time. I'm deleting it.
Easy to install, effectiveness remains to be seen...
UPDATE: have to move down to 2 stars. And those are purely for ease of install. The ads and keywords it came up with were terrible. Nobody is searching for them, they don't relate to my products, and the ad campaign would be a total waste of money.
I had already set up some Adwords campaigns by myself but thought this would be a nice addition to that. I was wrong. You're better off building campaigns yourself - it's not too hard.
To their credit, they contacted me to try a new campaign. However, I'm better off doing it myself.
