PPC Management – Search Engine Marketing
Pay-per-click Campaigns using Google AdWords and Bing Ads
PPC is a very useful search engine marketing tool, because it has the power to drive highly targeted customers to your website, while you control cost and enjoy visibility on the ROI. Using effective PPC management, we can get the right customer to click on an ad, drive them to your website, and convert into a hot lead or paying customer. You need the right keywords, the right ads, the right landing pages, and most of all, the right expertise and experience in running Google AdWords and Bing Ads campaigns.
We highly recommend pay-per-click campaigns are run jointly with your search engine optimization (SEO) efforts, because the two techniques share a great deal in common. They both use search engines (notably Google), they are both triggered off keywords, and each can use the data the other generates to optimize them even further – there is a great deal of synergy between SEO and paid search.
You may also use PPC to gain market share and visibility into markets where your SEO cannot compete fast enough, or at all.
Effective PPC management will ensure that:
- You spend only what you want to spend, and you do not spend anything unless you have an ad clicked on
- You control who gets to see your ads and when, providing full control over your marketing effort
- You are seen by potential customers and prospects in search engine results you cannot get listed in with SEO
- You can market in local areas where you do not have a physical presence, e.g. a Frederick-based company can gain exposure in Washington D.C. or Baltimore MD
- You can promote short-term promotions or seasonal deals when you need a boost to capture customers, for instance as a retailer during the Holiday shopping season
- You can test keywords to check they convert well into leads and paying customers before you invest effort and resources to optimize and rank them with SEO
- Similarly, you can use PPC to identify keywords you really do want to go after using SEO
There are many different variations of PPC campaigns you can explore and test, including:
- Search – displays text ads on a search engine results page when a keyword is used by the customer, and which is relevant to your ad
- Display – displays banner ads on websites which have a similar theme to the keywords you are using
- Video – displays ads triggered by keyword and theme on video networks, e.g. YouTube
- Mobile – displays ads via smartphones and through apps (either in-app or using other channels to drive potential customers to your application)
- Remarketing – otherwise known as ad stalking – once someone visits your website, or an ad displayed elsewhere, then they can be shown ads from you continuously as they browse through other websites, effectively letting your message and ads follow the user
