How To Get Started in PPC Advertising

by Ben Goodman ***
Pay per click advertising is considered to be one of the most effective ways of gaining an audience that converts. However, it’s not just like posting content -- it’s about posting content backed up with thorough target analysis. 




How it works

According to Hub Spot, a blog specializing in marketing trends and pay per click advertising, “Pay-per-click, PPC, is a paid advertising model that falls under search engine marketing (SEM). With PPC, the advertiser only pays when people interact with their ad through impressions or clicks.” When done with proper and thorough analysis, you drive real results that convert audiences into customers giving you a sufficient return on investment (ROI) for your efforts. 


#1 Set Parameters 

The first and most important element of pay per click advertising is setting measures or goals that will determine the effectiveness of your short or long-term campaign. The next thing would be to determine how you should turn these goals into feasible courses of action. Questions such as: 

Who is your target? 
What is the theme of your campaign?
How will you measure success? 
When is your ‘deadline’ for posting?

..will guide you in creating an effective PPC campaign.


#2 Formulate Specific Goals

Formulating specific goals is an essential process in any strategy. Without specific goals, we go on our paths without a destination. Some of the PPC goals you might want to incorporate in your next campaign may be on brand awareness, lead generation, sales or site traffic. 



#3 Choose your campaign type

Choosing the platform of your choice is not enough. When you’re planning a PPC campaign, knowing how is also essential to reach your target audience. You may choose from search ads, display ads, and social media feeds. 




#4 Know the right keywords

What are your audiences’ most used keywords? The general rule of thumb, according to Hub Spot, is to select between 1 to 5 keywords per ad group and those words should be relevant and searchable. Certain platforms, like Google Adwords, also assist in finding the keywords with a high quality score. If you are able to pull off the right keywords, then you are most likely to appear more often on search engines. 


The foundation of your efforts relies on your research and thorough analysis. Alternatively, you can find someone else to do it -- preferably lead generation service provider like CoffeeBot Digital Marketing Solutions who are experts in the field. Talk about saving time while driving real results.
