PPC Advertising is Practical and Effective
By now you understand the importance of good website SEO, organic search engine results, and PPC advertising. Despite this, a lot of people still balk a bit at the thought of spending money on Pay Per Click advertising. It’s the unknown. It’s a little bit scary and takes a bit of trial and error to get just right. That said, it is an incredibly practical and effective method of advertising you simply shouldn’t ignore.
PPC is Practical
PPC is great for businesses with budgets of any size. We already know that individuals looking for a product or service will use a series of keywords or phrases when using the search engines. This means you’re really simply bidding with other companies to make sure your website shows in the search result ad box. The better your keyword research, the more you can do with less competitive phrases that still drive a ton of traffic.
Even better is the ability to modify your budget and needs. For example, if you know the average person spends $100 on products your business offers, you can also determine what percentage of that amount you’re willing to spend to drive a customer towards your store. If you pay $50 on an ad campaign that drives 10 people to your landing page and only one makes a purchase, you still profit (a little). If you pay $50 on an ad campaign that drives 20 people to your page and 2 make a purchase, you’re doing better. PPC is about being able to generate leads, practically assess your results, make changes, and enhance your ads.
PPC is Effective
A lot of businesses think it’s OK to focus on organic search results while skipping PPC. As a matter of fact, people are more likely to click on your website if they see your business in both the organic results and the ad box. It is as if Google is giving your business a stamp of approval by showing it in both places on the same screen.
PPC is also great for when you have a new promotion or product to promote but don’t want to wait for organic search results to pick up. Your holiday marketing campaigns can start immediately, will be more successful with a solid PPC campaign, and you can more effectively spread the word about your new inventory.
