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.
A correctly optimized and targeted PPC marketing campaign is the fastest way to drive the correct traffic to your website.
