What is Pay Per Click Advertising?

Pay Per Click Advertising involves creating and placing ads at the top or right-hand side of search results pages. Many businesses use these ads to persuade people to visit their websites.

In order for a PPC ad campaign to be successful, you must "bid" on keywords that best define your business so your ad will appear on appropriate keyword search result pages.

 

How Does PPC Work?

Instead of paying a flat fee each month to place ads on keyword search result pages, you will be able to keep advertising costs low by only paying when people click on your ad. Bid amounts vary based on the keywords you want to use.

You will work with your Sales Representative and Account Manager to determine a proper pay-per-click budget based on the type of industry you are in and your marketing budget.

You can increase or decrease the amount of estimated clicks each month.

 

Advantages of PPC

The main advantages of PPC are:

  1. Cost – Your budget is consumed by the clicks and leads your ad receives each month.
  2. Speed – Most PPC ad campaigns are up and running in 5-7 business days.
  3. Control – Your analyst will work to control what Internet users see when they view your ad or click through to your website.
  4. Timing – Set up your ads to run only when you want them to.
  5. Targeted – Easily hit your target audience by using the proper keywords and ad copy.
  6. Calculation – PPC is easily measured. Marketers are able to get raw data about ad campaigns within seconds and can easily determine the cost per lead or acquisition.
