Pay-per-click (PPC) advertising management

Pay-per-click (PPC) advertising management

What is PPC?

PPC is the acronym for pay-per-click advertising with two key media players relevant to the UK market: Google AdWords and BingAds. These major search engines allow you to sponsor keywords that their users are searching for, providing a fantastic opportunity for online sales and lead generation. Within the advertising interfaces that Google and Microsoft provide, you can build up campaigns, ad groups, keywords and ad creatives with many variants available to boost relevancy. By setting up enquiry / sales / phone tracking (all available within Google AdWords as part of their product) you can see cost per acquisition (CPA)

Why outsource PPC management?

PPC management has become an involved marketing discipline worthy of outsourcing because:

(a) Google, Bing and Yahoo protect the user experience of the search engines by setting quality standards in the ad creatives and the destination page that the ads take the user to.

(b) Google AdWords and BingAds provide you with a suite of evolving advertising products – for example Google Product Listing ads, remarketing, remarketing lists for search ads (RLSA) or display advertising via the Google Display Network.

If you have made the effort (and paid the money!) to get customers to your website it makes sense to re-market to those that don’t buy. Re-marketing is about getting the most out of your initial marketing investment and enticing those clients back. There is a number of ways to re-engage with these customers offering strong messages and calls to actions and making sure you target the right people at the right time.

Not everyone clicks on the paid search ads, so integrating a good PPC campaign with well run display advertising helps you broaden the reach of your business. As with re-marketing we look to deliver strong marketing messages, calls to actions, images incorporating the company’s branding to delivery the biggest impact.
