Frequently Asked Questions

If accepted, this program is completely free. Every dollar you invest goes directly towards your Google Ads account. 

Yes, but it is dependent upon the stage of the account. Our team of specialized growth consultants has to reserve this level of additional bandwidth for advertisers that are ready to take the next step in their digital ads investment. Every customer is in a different stage, and will require different needs or investment levels, but AGT has to ensure our limited bandwidth is reserved for customers ready to scale from their existing trajectory to warrant this additional support. 

After you finish the 3-month duration, one of three things can happen based on your advertising needs. Continue with an account management team at Google, manage your account in-house, or continue working with a Google Partner of your choice (Google partners are trained to take over management).

This is dependent on you. Initially, you will meet frequently with your account specialist as they build your account and you align on ROI metrics. When the account is running, you may set up recurring calls to sync on performance.

The challenge

Bright Cellars is a monthly wine club where users can share their personal food and drink preferences in order to get a custom wine box stocked full of picks just for them.

Ollie Pets



"Amidst the surge of pet adoptions and increasing demand for high-quality dog food during the pandemic, Google helped us both educate consumers on our category through YouTube and capture high-intent users through Search. Not only were we able to significantly scale acquisition at lower costs, but we were also able to prove out YouTube as an efficient prospecting channel."

— Evan, Ollie Pets 

The challenge

Ollie Pets ( is a growing startup in the fresh dog food delivery sector. In a competitive market, they had two primary growth goals 1) gain market share from their competitors 2) gain 4K new subscriptions, all while staying under their customer acquisition cost target. Because of COVID-19, searches for "Dog Food Delivery" drastically increased and we saw this as an opportunity to help users looking for these products as well as utilize new strategies to gain market share.

The approach

To work towards these goals we adopted a full funnel approach which included a Youtube for Action campaign with a brand lift study and expanding our search strategy. Specifically in search we experimented with Ad customizers, a new campaign focused on delivery keywords, and a competitor campaign.

The results

The Youtube campaign resulted in 42,271 lifted users and +10% additional conversions through branded-search. Overall, Ollie Pets was able to increase conversions 340% receiving more than 3,700 conversions from April 7th to July 5th. During this time we also decreased their CPA by approximately 21%.

—Jonathan, CEO Breakthrough Guitar

The challenge

The founder, Jonathan, started this business back in 2019 and launched Google Ads soon after to begin scaling his model. Armed with a strong copywriting background, Jonathan felt that he just needed to get more reach within his target market to effectively scale.

The approach

The Accelerated Growth Team partnered with Breakthrough Guitar early in Q2’20 to get an understanding for who this audience was he was looking to target. After a handful of conversations, AGT was able to identify a mix of Google offerings on Display, Search, Discovery and YouTube that could help Breakthrough Guitar move towards achieving their ultimate goal for 2020, which was hitting multiple six figures in monthly revenue by the end of the year.

The results

After several iterations of testing creatives, audiences, and strategies, in just the first 45 days we grew revenue by 500%, which came in combination with a 3.8X increase in Google Ads investment. This ultimately helped Breakthrough Guitar achieve their end of year goal six months ahead of schedule. Due to this incredible growth, Breakthrough Guitar has since hired 9 employees, and is working on scaling the business much further with Google products for years to come.
