PPC is paid advertising on the internet. Your ad is show on websites (e.g. CNN, Fox News etc.) and also appears on search engine results pages such as Google and Bing. You are only charged if someone clicks on your ad. Not everyone sees your ad. This is by design as we only want to show your ads to people who are most likely to use your product or service.
Optimized PPC campaigns that target the correct audience are the quickest way to drive more traffic and increase your customer base.
If not correctly set up, a PPC campaign can quickly devour time and money and show little or no return for your efforts. Despite differences across PPC campaigns, they all share a common set of elements; the building blocks for success
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. There are specialized research tools that PPC agencies use to help find and use the most relevant keywords.
Your PPC campaign may target a particular demographic or geographic section of the population. Understanding your business objectives helps pay per click agencies select the best ad platforms and match ads with your target audience.
PPC is effectively an auction – who is prepared to pay the highest price to have their ad shown? Other Valdosta companies are competing against you for that valuable ad space. Understanding what the competition is doing and how best to position yourself against them is an important service provided by a PPC management company.
Reviewing your objectives, targeting the right audience and choosing the right advertising platforms from day one are core components of what a Valdosta PPC management company does. Geographical targeting, keyword selection and demographic targeting are all areas that a PPC firm will advise you on while developing the best approach for your campaign.
They can also help write compelling ads that are more likely to be clicked on, as well as develop effective landing pages that encourage any visitors to convert into leads or customers.
Your page must be optimized for conversion once your ad has been clicked. 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. Dedicated landing pages that are reviewed, updated and optimized are the best way to accomplish this. As a general rule, each campaign must contain its on dedicated landing page. Most homepages are not optimized for a PPC campaign.
