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. Not everyone sees your ad. This is by design as we only want to show your ads to people who are most likely to use your product or service.
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. Understanding what your ideal customer is using in their search queries is vital. 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. 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.
You are bidding against your competition in Pasco for ad space. PPC is a real time auction. Whoever is paying the highest price will have their ad shown. Knowing what your competition is doing is one of the elements provided by a PPC management company. It helps you understand how to position yourself and define what strategies to deploy.
Knowing the ins-and-outs of each ad platform is one of the benefits you receive by partnering with a Pasco PPC agency. Geographical targeting, keyword selection and demographic targeting are all areas that a PPC firm will advise you on while developing the best approach for your campaign.
Agencies will develop targeted ad copy with compelling offers that lead to relevant landing pages.
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. The page must clearly contain the information, product or service that the searcher was looking for when they clicked on the ad together with a call to action to convert them. Stand alone landing pages must be constantly updated, optimized and reviewed. As a general rule, each campaign must contain its on dedicated landing page. Most homepages are not optimized for a PPC campaign.
