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).
A correctly optimized and targeted PPC marketing campaign is the fastest way to drive the correct traffic to 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. Each PPC campaign is different, but the elements required for success are common to all.
Understanding the keywords that your target audience is using when they search is the first step in any successful campaign. 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.
After keyword research you need to zero in on what demographic and geographic targets you wish to reach. Exploring targeting options within each ad platform is discussed as a pay-per-click agency takes time to understand your business objectives.

Agencies will develop targeted ad copy with compelling offers that lead to relevant landing pages.
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. A call to action coupled with clear information on the service or product that the lead was looking for when the clicked on the ad is crucial. The best solution is a dedicated landing page that is constantly reviewed and optimized. As a general rule, each campaign must contain its on dedicated landing page. Most homepages are not optimized for a PPC campaign.
