What does this app do exactly?

The purpose of this app is to make your life a bit easier and, as we like to say, “save you enough time to enjoy that morning coffee you love so much”. Once you link the Google Ads account you want to work with, you can start receiving metrics and graphics directly on your Slack chat by simply texting the Slack Bot. This way, you are saving some of your precious time as you don’t have to enter your Google Ads interface every single day.

Some of the awesome features of the app are:

  • Metrics & Graphs → Important metrics and graphs pertaining to your campaign’s performance such as impressions, conversions, clicks and more will be available directly on Slack.
  • Reminders → Receive your metrics daily on your preferred channel to make them public for your team or keep it to yourself by choosing the Direct Message option.
  • COMING SOON Tips → Ask for tips on how to improve your Google Ads strategy all through simple messaging. We will be able to suggest things like adding a different type of campaign, adjusting the campaign budget, or modifying campaign target.
  • COMING SOON Alerts → Want to feel more secure about your Google Ads account? Slack will alert you if there is anything happening that is considered unusual with it.
  • COMING SOON Actions → Increase productivity by completing actions on your Google Ads account. You will be able to change your daily budget, activate your campaigns or pause them at any time all through texting Slack bot.

Why do I have to link my Google Ads account?

In order for the app to work correctly, it needs data from your Google Ads account. For security reasons, Google does not allow anyone to see your metrics by default, so we need your permission. We require the lowest level of access to your Google Ads account called "Manage your Adwords campaigns". This is the only kind of permission we need that will only allow us to check your metrics and build charts and summaries.

Is it safe to link my Google Ads account?

It’s 100% safe! Clever ecommerce is a Premier Google Partner. In order to achieve this title, we have to meet Google's highest standards and criteria. The different products we've developed over the years have established a strong reputation among 50,000 businesses.

How is my data secured?

Once you sign into your google account, we save an access token in our encrypted database. The key is only used by our Clever ecommerce API, and is never shared with Slack. When we retrieve the relevant data from Google Ads, we transform it into a formatted slack message, and we send it to the same conversation that you wrote a command.

Every communication, internal or with Google or slack, is encrypted using TLS 1.2 (Transport Layer Security). We only access to sites with the HTTPS protocol.

Our backend can only access to your google ads metrics, since you have authorized us for it, and we are not allowed to get data outside of this in any circumstances.
