Pay Per Click is a model of only paying for clicks that generate traffic to your website. The paid ads can appear on internet search result pages such as Bing and Google, and also appear on websites that sell ad space such as news websites, blogs, information sites and more. 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).
The quickest way to generate relevant traffic to your website is through a optimized and targeted PPC marketing campaign.
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.
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. Using specialized software is one of the secret weapons in any PPC expert's arsenal.
It is generally best to target a specific geographical location or particular demographic with your PPC campaign. 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.

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.
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. Stand alone landing pages must be constantly updated, optimized and reviewed. 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.
