PPC Ads and Google Adwords
Make Waves. Be Found Online.
If you’re looking for a method to get your business in front of your customers fast, it could be worth looking into PPC, or pay per click ads like Google Adwords for your business.
While organic, ecommerce and Local SEO strategies are great long-term strategies that will provide quality leads over time, the reality is they can take several months to really show their return on investment.
That’s why you should widen your scope of opportunities with a paid ads strategy.
Generally, when a customer Googles a product or service, they’re already in a position to take action. Using a paid ad strategy to put yourself at the top of the page will ensure this customer finds what they’re looking for quickly and easily. Then, once your other strategies gain traction you have the advantage of occupying several spots on the Google results page.
What are the benefits of pay per click ads on Google?
PPC ad strategies come with a range of benefits for your business. These include:
Being seen above the organic Google results
Paid ads results are shown at the very top of the page and the very bottom, so the chances that your result will be the first thing that customers see is much greater. Often, if the top result answers the customer’s question and solves their problem, they won’t even scroll down any further.
Reach a targeted audience
PPC Ad strategies allow you to get very specific with who you want to see the ad – or even who you don’t want to see the ad. This means that the people who do see it are the most qualified and likely to book your services.
Used by both large and small businesses
Because paid ads can be very specific, they’re super flexible. That means they’re perfect for anyone, and can be easily scaled up or down to suit your needs or to test different strategies.
You control how much you spend
Whether you want a small budget to start out, or you know that this strategy will get you the conversions you’re looking for, you can adjust your budget and how much you want to spend on different strategies and particular keywords.
How Do You Develop A Paid Ads Strategy?
The first thing to do is to get to know your business, the same as any marketing strategy. We can’t effectively make recommendations or predict results of your campaign without first knowing the playing field. We then take that knowledge and use it to create keyword research that tells us the types of things people are searching when they’re looking for your business.
Armed with the keyword research, we can start creating ads specific to what people are looking for and what you offer. This research also allows us to prevent irrelevant ads – for example, there’s no use running an ad campaign on a keyword that people primarily use for research, without the intent to contact a business. You’re much better off targeting the ‘actin’ keywords that people use when they’re ready to commit.
Then we also have to consider the content of your ads. Do they need a dedicated landing page on the website so that we can track conversions and the effectiveness of the campaign? (Typically, yes). Do we need to create images or videos for any display or video retargeting? Are they capturing the right intent?
