Bahram Ehsas

Head of Demand Generation at
I live and breathe AdWords. I have been using this tool for long enough to feel older than I am. I have single-handedly managed accounts with spends of over €3mil per year, and successfully created an inflection in their performance. Spending big budgets has meant that I have had the privilege of testing nearly everything AdWords has had to offer... and more (if you take into account Google's Alpha and Beta tests that I had access to).

Google Ads allows you to have at your disposal the first positions of the page on Google to make your company or website known. This way you can obtain an incomparable competitive advantage. Google Ads campaigns are the most profitable in the advertising industry and you will only pay for the results obtained . It's a practically perfect system and I'm sure it with my +5 years of experience using Google ads I can help you set and optimize successfully all your paid search & display campaigns.

Jason Barbato

Former Global Growth Lead at
Over seven years straight of managing search, display, and Gmail advertising in direct-touch in-house roles, in partnership with vendors, and hands-on as a consultant. Monthly campaign budgets as high as $1M and ongoing retainers in $10-25K per month range.

Renato Skrgulja

Digital Marketing Team Lead @ Travel Unicorn
Google ads are my specialty. Even before becoming a Head of Paid Search at Ladder this is what made my career. Knowing how to structure and optimise the account can turn any business into a competitor and more. I've spent around $5 million managing Google Ads for companies such as IG, Yara, Wedgewood Weddings, Criteo, Playground Sessions and more all with positive ROAS reaching the goals they set.

“If I could leave a 50 star review, I’d be happy to do that. Lynn is a SEM magician, knows Google Ads on a very advanced level and is eager to help out with your strategy and tactics. Amazing session, one of the best I’ve had on this platform.”

Was a pleasure to have meet Liliana. In just 30 minutes we were able to dissect some key areas to focus on for my Adwords campaign. She pretty much provided a health checklist of areas that I should dive in to in order to lean up my conversion trackings. Communication was delivered consistently up until the meeting time. Can see that she is passionate and loves what she does!

Why talk to a Google Ads mentor?

You can talk to your Google Ads mentor about whatever you want.

A very common use case for talking to a Google Ads mentor is using them as a sounding board to get feedback on your Adwords strategy. You can set up a screen share and show how your Google Ads campaign to your mentor. They’ll give you 1:1 advice on how to optimize your campaigns, ad groups, and ads.

It’s a lot faster to learn by asking questions directly to experts than by passively consuming content on the internet.

Here are some ideas for inspiration:

  • You’re considering outsourcing your Google Ads to an agency or freelancer but just aren’t sure
  • You’ve got a few campaigns running with decent conversions but want a quick audit in realtime of how everything’s structured
  • You’re thinking of offering Adwords services yourself and want a bit of career advice from those that have “been there and done that.”
  • You’re not using the full range of ad extensions and you want some help on setting them up
  • You’re looking for second opinions on your ad copy

Google Ads Mentorship for Beginners

Speaking to a Google Ads mentor can help you avoid most of the silly mistakes that beginners make. But if you’re not lucky enough to have a colleague or friend that’s willing to mentor you, it’s hard to find one!

The best Google Ads experts usually charge between $90-150 per hour. This is out of budget for most beginners to spend on mentorship or advice, so they view it as a “luxury” and just move on without any mentorship. Instead of learning under the wing of someone with real-world experience, they try and learn the hard way.

What ends up usually happening:

  • Spend countless hours reading blog posts and watching courses.
  • After a while, you build up a false sense of confidence and jump headfirst into building your first campaign.
  • 3 days later, no conversions, OMG!
  • You shut off your campaign and convince yourself, “Google Ads don’t work for my business.”

Google Ads Mentorship for Hiring Managers

At this point you might decide that you aren’t the best fit for managing your Google Ads. Not everyone’s cut out to be a Google Ads expert. If you’ve got other things to do, like running your business, outsourcing Google Ads management is a no brainer.

How a GrowthMentor can help you if you’re in this position:

  • Get help with hiring: Should I hire a Google Ads freelancer, agency, or hire someone fulltime for an inhouse position?
  • Get help with vetting Google Adwords experts: How do I know if the people applying for the position really know their stuff?
  • Get help with negotiating contracts: Here is the proposal I received from my Google Ads expert, is it reasonable or are they overpricing me?

Mentors and mentees are able to set their communication tools in their profile settings.

It is a good idea to connect with the other person once the session is accepted and the details are given. This ensures that the correct details were given and when it is time to start, you can start on time.

Here are some tips on how to get the maximum bang for your time on growth mentor calls.

  • Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
  • Ask your mentor if they’d be cool with you recording your screen with Loom
  • Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
  • Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as honest as possible.
  • Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question asking. Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
  • Don’t feel pressure, just relax. There’s no right/wrong way to do this. Avoid binary thinking.
  • Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors. Pay attention to metadata.
  • Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to play devil’s advocate and challenge your assumptions.
  • Be friendly and authentic. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).

Yup! Many of the mentors offer monthly coaching packages for members who want to really dive deep into a specific area.

Each mentor creates their own package so what they offer and the price vary from mentor to mentor. You can find their coaching info at the top of their profile.
