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).
Optimized PPC campaigns that target the correct audience are the quickest way to drive more traffic and increase your customer base.
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. Understanding what your ideal customer is using in their search queries is vital. A PPC agency will have access to specialized research tools to help select the best keywords from the start.
It is generally best to target a specific geographical location or particular demographic with your PPC campaign. 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.

Optimized landing pages are another vital part of the strategy. Once you have a click you must direct that visitor to a landing page that is designed to convert that lead into a customer or client. It is vitally important that the searcher land on a page that has clear and compelling information about the product or services in the ad, with a distinct call to action. Stand alone landing pages must be constantly updated, optimized and reviewed. As a general rule, each campaign must contain its on dedicated landing page. Most homepages are not optimized for a PPC campaign.
