It is difficult to quantify an average time because ATS campaigns depend on a number of parameters that vary from company to company. If we had to give a range, in order for the return on investment to be interesting on your Google AdWords campaigns, we advise you to allow between 2 and 8 hours per month for the follow-up of your campaigns, depending on the number of your campaigns. 

A good budget - time - expertise ratio

More the parameters of your ads are detailedThe higher the return on investment, the higher the return on investment, because your site will appear on the right requests. In contrastIf you do not have a basic configuration, you may be tempted to make unnecessary queries and lose budget.

How much time should you give to your Google Ads campaigns?

How long before my first Google Adwords campaign is online? 

Your ad will air within the hour once validated, barring any anomaly. If you schedule your Google Ads campaign at a later date, in this case it is marked "pending". If you want to stop a campaign in time, at a specific date, you can fill it in on the platform. This feature is particularly useful for seasonal products or for events. 

Why don't you (always) see your Google Ads?

Very often, the advertiser wants to check whether he appears on his keywords. However, most of the time he will not see his own campaigns even if all the settings are good. Why this? Simply because the advertiser who sees his site will not click on the ad (he would spend his budget unnecessarily) so Google locates his IP address and will deduce that the ad does not interest him: he will propose others. 

Seeing one's own ads is not interesting, because Google offers accurate performance statistics ads via Analytics and AdWords.
