Lots of things need to be considered when choosing a PPC expert to set up and manage your PPC campaign.
What page are you going to send visitors to? Are there clear pictures or descriptions of your products/services?
Different products will need different landing pages, unless you plan to send all visitors to your homepage.
However all visitors want to go directly to what they are looking for, rather than having to click 2-3 pages to search for what they are looking for.
What keywords do you want to be found for, what about negative keywords?
Most companies are selling more than one product/service, so you will need multiple campaigns set up.
Not all campaigns are going to be effective, so you do need to test different keywords, different landing pages and test test test. This is to ensure you get a campaign running that is effective as possible.

Paid advertising is essential to shops and retail businesses in today’s world, as the internet is playing an increasing roll of people buying things.
For many (chain stores and sole traders) having visibility on web searches will mean an increase in trade.
Many of the main stores (Amazon, Top Shop, Debenhams etc.) have paid advertising campaigns going, and many retail companies only operate on-line due to saving money on retail space.
As the number of people that do shopping on-line increases, having higher web traffic is growing more important.
The cost is split into two parts, the cost of the advertising (how much you want to spend on clicks) and the cost of the management of the campaign (which goes to the agency).
Shopping around and comparing quotes is therefore important, in order to ensure the monthly fees are kept low, and the CPC (cost per click) is also kept low.
When considering different agencies, it is wise to select one that has got experience in doing marketing for shops. Do they have a track record of working in the retail industry and can justify their experience with their success.
