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. Your ads don't show to everyone. They only display for a highly targeted audience giving you the best chance of a lead or sale.
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. Each PPC campaign is different, but the elements required for success are common to all.
Keyword planning is an essential first step to building a winning campaign. In order for a campaign to work, you must select keywords that align with the intent of the search terms being used. Using specialized software is one of the secret weapons in any PPC expert's arsenal.

Once your ad has attracted a click, it is important that the traffic is sent to a page that is optimized for conversion. The page must clearly contain the information, product or service that the searcher was looking for when they clicked on the ad together with a call to action to convert them. The best solution is a dedicated landing page that is constantly reviewed and optimized. The home page of a website rarely contains the elements needed to effectively convert your PPC traffic. A dedicated landing page is a key part of the conversion rate optimization process to maximize the leads generated by the paid search traffic.
