Hitchhiker's Guide To Ecommerce PPC Management

The Hitchhiker's Guide to Ecommerce PPC is a Free multi-part series that was built to help Ecommerce store owners use PPC advertising - Adwords, Bing Ads, Google Shopping Campaigns and more - to drive targeted traffic that converts to sales. AmeriCommerce has partnered with PPC Expert Travis Phipps to build out an island of actionable content that eCommerce store owners can immediately put to work for them.

Included is a FREE 165-page eBook, Videographics, Blog posts and Infographics to make this an actionable and entertaining, themed content island.


If you prefer to read in blog format, the Hitchhiker's Guide to Ecommerce PPC is broken up into 4 parts on the AmeriCommerce blog. You can start with the first and go all the way through, or skip around if you like. But this series is not the bare basics of Google Adwords and PPC. Travis gives you the insights and tricks of the trade that he personally uses on his own campaigns. If you prefer to download the e-book and read it offline, you can download it below.
