PPC Advertising from Growth Squad

What is Pay Per Click and Will It Work for You?

In search engines like Google or Bing, PPC works by letting advertisers bid for the sponsored ad placement associated with searches related to their business. Each time a sponsored ad is clicked, you pay the agreed upon fee. If you’ve agreed to $1 per click and you get 50 clicks a month, you’ll be charged a total of $50. It’s important to remember that in search engines, the sponsored ads are sold in an auction where you bid the maximum you’re willing to pay per click and the highest bids for those key words win. This means that buying the sponsored ad space has the potential to get pretty pricey fairly quickly if you don’t have a solid PPC marketing strategy in place—and this strategy starts and ends with your keywords.

The Importance of Keywords

Keywords are, well, key. PPC campaigns are focused on keywords specific to your products and services. But, like everything else in life, the most successful advertisers are those who don’t sit idle once the initial list has been made. They consistency tweak and grow their list of PPC keywords in order to stay at the top of the page and continue to bring in new users/searchers. When choosing your keywords, you’ll need to consider the most important/common keywords in your market as well as the long-tail keywords (longer, more specific phrases such as “air duct cleaning”). This can be extremely cost-effective for smaller businesses with small budgets. PPC keywords allow you to add geography and other keywords specific to your location—ensuring you’re able to target the customer the most likely to ultimately make a purchase.

Growth Squad will work with you to generate (and modify as needed) your business-specific list of keywords, determine an appropriate budget and PPC marketing strategy, and track your site’s progress in search listing.
