Simply put it is a form of internet advertising where your ad is shown online; either on a search engine results page (e.g. Google, Bing) or on another website (e.g. CNN, Fox News etc.) and you only pay for that ad if someone clicks on it. Ads can be highly targeted to your audience, making them more likely to convert (e.g. contact your business, download an app or make a purchase from your site).
PPC marketing campaigns that are correctly targeted and optimized can quickly generate relevant traffic for your website.
If not correctly set up, a PPC campaign can quickly devour time and money and show little or no return for your efforts. While there are differences in every PPC campaign, certain aspects do remain common for success.
The first step in a successful campaign is learning what keywords your target audience is using. Selecting the most common keywords and matching the intent of the searcher with the objective of the campaign is crucial. There are specialized research tools that PPC agencies use to help find and use the most relevant keywords.
Demographic or geographic targeting is often part of successful PPC campaigns. In order to match ads with the correct audience, your pay per click agency should meet with you and take the time to learn about your business, offerings and goals.
