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.
Optimized PPC campaigns that target the correct audience are the quickest way to drive more traffic and increase your customer base.
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. 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.
Your PPC campaign may target a particular demographic or geographic section of the population. Understanding your business objectives helps pay per click agencies select the best ad platforms and match ads with your target audience.
PPC is effectively an auction – who is prepared to pay the highest price to have their ad shown? Other Sugar Land companies are competing against you for that valuable ad space. A key service provided by PPC management companies is helping you understand what your competition is doing and how to position yourself against them.
Knowing the ins-and-outs of each ad platform is one of the benefits you receive by partnering with a Sugar Land PPC agency. While planning the best approach for your campaign, a PPC firm will help you explore keyword selection, demographic and geographical targeting.
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.
Your page must be optimized for conversion once your ad has been clicked. It is vitally important that the searcher land on a page that has clear and compelling information about the product or services in the ad, with a distinct call to action. 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. A dedicated landing page is a key part of the conversion rate optimization process to maximize the leads generated by the paid search traffic.
