What is PPC?
Are you looking for instant traffic? Interested in targeting your potential customers with online ads set to only appear at a certain time for a specific geographic location? Get instant traffic online with a Pay Per Click advertising campaign! Pay per click (PPC) advertising is a type of online advertising where you only pay when somebody clicks on your ads. It is an internet advertising model you can use to get instant targeted traffic to your website through Google AdWords or the Yahoo! Bing Network.
Consumers find products and services they are looking for in search engines by typing search terms or keywords. When the target keywords on your PPC campaign are typed by users on search engines, your ads appear on top, below, or alongside organic search results. The position of your ads against your competitors will depend on how much you are bidding for your target keywords and your quality score. Depending on the campaign settings, your ads may also appear on various sites that are part of the Google, Bing and Yahoo! Networks. There are many options to target your customers – some of the targeting options are by device, location, language, scheduling and keyword matching. When they click on any of your ads they are directed to a landing page on your website where you can convert them to leads or customers via an inquiry, contact form or ‘buy now’ buttons.
Why does PPC work?
Let’s take conventional advertising as an example. Say you pay for a TV commercial or radio commercial, or billboard, etc. Is everyone that sees that ad your target market? Probably not. PPC only targets consumers specifically looking for the product or service you provide. They need or want your product or service because they are actually searching for it online. This is a great strategy to use in conjunction with an SEO campaign. While you are working to improve your organic ranking results, it’s a good idea to sprinkle in some PPC until you meet those goals.
