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. 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.
The quickest way to generate relevant traffic to your website is through a optimized and targeted PPC marketing campaign.
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.
Every campaign has the same first step, and that is understanding the keywords being used by your target audience in the search efforts. Selecting the most common keywords and matching the intent of the searcher with the objective of the campaign is crucial. There are specialized research tools that PPC agencies use to help find and use the most relevant keywords.
It is generally best to target a specific geographical location or particular demographic with your PPC campaign. A pay per click agency will take the time to understand your business objectives and match those to the targeting options with the ad platform.

Writing compelling ads that are more likely to be clicked on, and highly targeted landing pages that help convert leads or customers are other ways in which agencies help.
Once your ad has attracted a click, it is important that the traffic is sent to a page that is optimized for conversion. 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. A dedicated landing page that is continuously reviewed and optimized is the best solution for this. 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.
