Lets start at the beginning, how does PPC advertising work?
You only pay when someone clicks on your advert.
So by using the correct combination of keywords, ad messaging, and landing page, you’ll should only attract visitors who are interested in your product or service. They should hopefully be more motivated to convert.
As your customers increasingly spend more of their time online, it makes sense to reach them on the internet.
A pay per click agency will help you plan and execute an effective online advertising campaign that will reach your customers with relevant messaging.
They offer a wide range of services, from account audits and consultations, to full account build and management.
Most PPC agencies offer a full range of services. Broadly these will cover:
Some PPC agencies can also run display adverts for you, these being advertising on sites other than search engines.
Most commonly these will be in the form of image or animated adverts. Some agencies will have their own in-house designers to make these adverts for you, so let them know if this is a requirement.
The aim of all paid media activity should be aligned to meet your business goals, and a good agency will operate with a “business owner mentality” treating your account as if it were their own company.
The fundamentals of pay per click are fairly easy to grasp, and there is a wealth of information about the topic online.
However there is a vast difference between an averagely run account and an excellently run one.
There is quite a lot of analysis that is needed, so this can take time. Setting up keywords and even ‘negative keywords’ takes time and insight.
PPC costs do vary considerably, so we do advise shopping around and comparing quotes.
