Pay Per Click (PPC)
A well thought out, properly executed AdWords pay-per-click campaign can generate a flood to traffic to your website and driving leads and sales. Only those who actually clicked on your ad are taken to your website, or directed to call your business.
What is Pay-Per-Click Advertising?
Pay-Per-Click (PPC) Advertising is a strategy of advertising using search engines and social media websites. You set a monthly budget with Google, and each time your advertisement is clicked, Google will charge your budget. You can target a very specific audience with PPC ads, and when properly utilized, this can generate new customers.
Pay-Per-Click advertising is advantageous because it utilizes the fact that customers are actively seeking some product or service or information online, and puts your advertisement in front of people who are actually looking for you. Research has shown that PPC ads do get clicked on, much more than any other forms of digital advertising. People don’t mind being advertised to, so long as the advertisement is relevant to their searches.
What does this mean for you?
So what if you are an entrepreneur building a brand new web site? It is unlikely that you can get to the top of page one overnight. Pay-Per-Click (PPC) is a great way to start getting noticed right away. It takes a while to build a reputation. Since the formula is fresh content plus relevant information plus reputation, you need to start introducing your company online. PPC campaigns allow you to target specific phrases that can be locally targeted, specific to your industry jargon, focused on layman’s terms, and any combination of these to reach your audience with the news that there is a new game in town.
When creating a PPC campaign, it is important to keep in mind just what your customers are looking for. When you are choosing keywords, you need to ask yourself what problems your customers are trying to solve, and how they will go about looking for a solution. What circumstances do people find themselves in when they need you? Don’t forget to put yourself in your customer’s shoes and imagine what information they are seeking.
Many long-standing companies with well-established web presences use Pay-Per-Click advertising campaigns to launch new product lines, promote special sales, and announce new locations. These companies are often using PPC in conjunction with on-going SEO campaigns to form a carefully prepared Search Engine Marketing strategy.
