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. To give your ad the best chance for success in converting a lead or sale, we make sure they are only shown to a highly targeted audience.

PPC campaigns can cost a lot of time and money. If not setup correctly you can end up with zero results and no budget left for ads. Certain elements are required for success across all PPC campaigns, but each one is uniquely different.
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. Finding the most relevant keywords is accomplished through specialized tools that PPC agencies have access to.
