PPC stands for pay-per-click, a form of advertising that allows you to target consumers and generate potential leads. While there are quite a few platforms that perform PPC, we will focus on the Google Ads platform today. There are four distinct ad channels on Google’s platform: Search, Display, Video and Shopping. We will be focusing on search marketing PPC in this email.
The PPC marketing model charges you every time your ad is clicked. It is an extremely powerful tool to drive traffic to your website while consumers are searching for keywords or browsing sites related to your business or service.
Here are a few tips for your PPC campaign
Monitor keyword pricing for the first-page position on Google so that you are bidding competitively.
Constantly review the search terms report to filter out negative keywords that you do not want your ad to rank for — you don’t want to pay for irrelevant clicks.
Refresh your ads with new content — headlines, descriptions, ad extensions, etc.
Utilize the audience targeting strategy to increase your ads’ relevance.
