In 2015, the competition for visibility in search results is fiercer than ever before. Along with search engine optimization, pay-per-click marketing can garner real estate for your brand on results pages. The straightforward nature of PPC puts your business in the driver’s seat, and if done correctly, the benefits far outweigh the risks.
So, if you’re on the fence about whether or not PPC advertising is worth it – I’ll explain why it’s a no brainer for your brand with these 5 practical points, even if you’re already a successful business.
For potential clients that are reluctant to invest in pay-per-click advertising, here are 5 reasons why PPC is worth your while:
1. Only pay when an interested person clicks
One of the reasons PPC is so straightforward is because you know exactly where your dollars are going and only pay when an interested party clicks on the ad. This is unlike traditional advertising, where you never really know that your target market is being engaged.
2. Set budget to your needs
With PPC, you are able to set your budget to control costs. You can put a cap price on your daily spend, and it’s flexible for you to change at any time. This doesn’t mean you should expect to see huge results with a limited budget however; it all depends on how competitive the keyword and industry are.
3. Target people in a specific time and place
With PPC’s location targeting and delivery options along with device-specific preferences (i.e. mobile), you can deliver very specific messages to your target consumer at the times they are likely to be online.
4. See almost immediate results
Organic search traffic is extremely important for long-term website marketing; however, it takes time to prove ROI with organic ads. PPC shows results fast. You can start a PPC campaign Monday and see results in terms of traffic and conversions the next day.
5. Become informed in other marketing channels
Because PPC shows results quickly, you can use it to see if a particular keyword or set of keywords is converting well for SEO purposes. You can also test the waters with new products or offerings using PPC to gauge demand and get an early look at its reception.
