Do your research here to find new opportunities that are a good fit for your account. The newest thing may seem great, but it might not always be appropriate for your goals or strategy.
Have someone on your team do an audit of the account. Have them be brutally honest about what is working / set up well, and what isn’t. Let’s face it, when you’re in the account day in and day out, it’s easy to miss things.
Some items to look for include:
This doesn’t have to be an incredibly in-depth audit, just take a look through the account and pull out any quick wins or findings. Once the audit has been completed, create an action plan to implement any findings.
How long has it been since you’ve really thought about your strategy? What are your goals? Should it be updated? These are questions that you should regularly ask yourself and your client.
A change in strategy could mean restructuring your remarketing efforts to capture more lead forms, targeting different audiences, expanding into other platforms, etc. etc.
Revisit how you are making tactical changes within the account. This can include:
This is a great time to review any automated bidding you have running. PPC accounts are dynamic, and a lot can be changing simultaneously. Some of these things will be examined in the audit process described above, but it’s a good practice to take a look for yourself.

Hopefully, this post has sparked some ideas as to how to refresh your PPC strategy or prompted you to set aside some time to think about the above-mentioned action items. Clients (or bosses!) will appreciate that you are taking the time to make sure the account is up to speed and remaining competitive, and not allowing things to grow stagnant.
