Automation is the inevitable fate of rote, less-than-stimulating tasks.
If it's mind-numbing and necessary, we as a species will find a robot or a computer that can do it more efficiently. Many of the pivotal tasks necessary for the creation of high-performance pay-per-click  marketing is best left to a smart, cost-efficient robot.
The more of this kind of minutiae that you can push off your plate and your staff's, the more man hours you have to play with. The more you can focus on things like creating great content, branding, messaging, and building community for your company or your client's company.
The following tutorial on PPC automation will show you exactly how you can go about automating away redundant, time-consuming, but necessary search engine marketing  tasks.
automating ppc: automate away mundane tasks
According to a study conducted by Radar Research, North American SEM expenditures are likely to reach over $20 billion dollars in 2010. How much of this massive spend, in general, must be being thrown at hours of mundane manual optimization? In a recent survey of industry professionals  conducted by SEOmoz, 82 percent of respondents claimed to offer "SEO consulting". Meanwhile, only 25 percent of these respondents listed business development and business management amongst their offered services. Only a fourth of the respondents so much as claimed to provide public relations or reputation management for their clients.
Search specialists in both the PPC  and SEO  fields spend absurd amounts of time researching keywords , creating Quality Score  friendly keyword segmentations , doing PPC bid management  and generating compelling ad copy . Wouldn't you rather your talent and resources be employed else where? Clearly it would be preferable to automate these redundant tasks.
