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. 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).
PPC marketing campaigns that are correctly targeted and optimized can quickly generate relevant traffic for your website.
To save money. If not properly configured your PPC campaign can burn through all of your budget with no return on investment. Each PPC campaign is different, but the elements required for success are common to all.
Every campaign has the same first step, and that is understanding the keywords being used by your target audience in the search efforts. In order for a campaign to work, you must select keywords that align with the intent of the search terms being used. There are specialized research tools that PPC agencies use to help find and use the most relevant keywords.
After keyword research you need to zero in on what demographic and geographic targets you wish to reach. 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.

Dedicated landing pages that are reviewed, updated and optimized are the best way to accomplish this. The home page of a website rarely contains the elements needed to effectively convert your PPC traffic.
