Google Adwords Reports
You may not have known this but you can actually send automated reports to your clients inside Google Adwords. Their interface is a little more confusing and advanced but if you are a Google Adwords whiz, you can create super-detailed automate reports to send to your clients.
To create reports in Google Adwords, just click the Reports link at the top in the main menu.
This takes you to the report page where you can create and manage all of your reports. You can create a report from a pre-made template or you can create a report from scratch. Simply create a report, and then select ‘Email and schedule report’ and you will see options to schedule the report to send to any users in the account.
You will not be able to add any email like you can in Ninja Reports, but if the email is connected to the Adwords account, you can.
Click create and the emails added will receive the report on the day/time you selected.
Google Analytics Reports
If you have Google Analytics and Google Adwords connected, then you can also send automated reports to clients using Google Analytics. When you connect your Adwords, you can see pretty much all the data in Analytics, which I’m sure you know, you can create automated email reports in.
To create automated Adwords reports in analytics just go to an Adwords based report like Paid Keywords Report or any of the Adwords tab reports. Once you see the data you want to send to your clients, click the share button at the top of the Google Analytics page.
From there you can add as many emails as you want, choose a custom subject line, add attachments and set the frequency of the reports. If you want to add a custom message to the reports you can do that as well.
Once, you are finished, click the send button and your report will now be scheduled to send at the requested time.
To remove or edit reports go to Admin->View->Scheduled Emails and you can view a list of all your scheduled email reports.
