Alongside the work needed to create an impressive website that complies with search engine requirements, a firm should also consider pay per click management.
Essentially, pay per click, or PPC, is a way to advertise your service or products online with an advert though you only pay when a potential client or customer clicks on it to find out more.
For many firms, this is a very effective way to advertise their business offering though, like a lot of things related to doing business on the Internet, it needs to be carefully managed so that the budget is used effectively.
PPC is particularly attractive to those firms or organisations who cannot, for whatever reason, get their website onto the first page of Google’s search results (though they should be talking to a search engine optimisation firm such as Mintcandy to guarantee this).
By using PPC, the attraction is that the paid-for advert will be seen at the top of the page before the organic results can be viewed.
However, there are a range of issues around this and a first page placement is not guaranteed for any particular keyword and a lot relies on how much you are willing to pay for the click on a keyword and, more importantly, how much your competitors are willing to pay to outbid you for the same click.
Pay per click (PPC) and affiliate advertising
Many firms still use PPC as an effective way to generate website traffic and there are also opportunities to have adverts, such as banner ads, to run on other popular sites.
Indeed, some firms and organisations may find that advertising on other sites by using what is called affiliated partner sites to be even more effective. That’s because the site carrying your banner advert will receive a payment should one of their site visitors click on the advert to go to your site.
But like everything to do with a business, the cost of sales needs to be analysed carefully because PPC may not generate the returns you are looking for.
For this reason a business should really use a PPC management specialists such as Mintcandy who can analyse your website, determine the keywords you should be advertising for and then put together a PPC strategy to bring the results you are expecting.
Like any form of advertising, the business needs a visitor to convert into a paying customer for the lowest possible price. Pay per click management may be the most effective way to do this.
Any firm looking to invest in a PPC campaign should appreciate that when your advert is displayed on search engine results, either at the top or running down the right hand side of the page, it will be tagged as being an advertisement. This will inevitably put some people off.
Make PPC pay for you and your business
However, the upside is that you’re offering will be seen for free until someone clicks on your advert.
All PPC campaigns should be carefully managed so that the costs are controlled and the investment brings the return expected of it.
Indeed, once a PPC campaign is up and running it should be reviewed on a regular basis to ensure that it is not only successful and bringing results but also so it can be tweaked to be even more effective.
