Are Google Ads Still Worth It?, AI for Paid Ads, and Paying for Coaches Doesn’t Make Sense (Reactions)
January 11, 2024

In episode #2655, we discuss the effectiveness of Google Ads and the value of business coaches. We break down the data on Google Ads, including click-through rates, conversion rates, and revenue generated. We also compare the return on ad spend for various social networks. When it comes to business coaches, we approach it with a skeptical perspective, particularly towards those primarily focused on making money, as Neil expresses. On the other hand, we share Eric’s positive experience with a coach who has truly been there and done that. Tune in to learn more about the profitability of Google Ads and the pros and cons of business coaching.
