Paid Search (PPC)
Known as Pay Per Click (PPC) it is the starting point for most digital advertising campaigns. Paid Search is an effective and proven way to guide relevant visitors to your site.
Target people actively
searching for your products & services
Paid search offers a unique and compelling advertising opportunity – reach people who are actively searching for a particular product or service and only pay if they like your ad and click through to your website.
How it works
You determine when your ads show by targeting a series of keywords. Only people whose search is matched to one of your keywords will see your ad. You can further refine your targeting with the following parameters:
- Location (specific towns/cities, radius from a location, nationwide or international)
- Demographics (Age & Gender)
- Time (Day of Week, Hour of Day)
- Audience Group, e.g. Return visitors
Google Shopping ads can be targeted using similar methods, but instead of keywords Google & Bing uses each product’s title and description to determine when the ad will show.
You determine the wording in your adverts. Show a relevant ad to every person who searches for your products or services.
- Clear Call to Action
- Dynamic Keyword Insertion
- Your USPs (callouts)
- Phone Number (optional)
- Your Address (optional)
- Price Promotions & Deals
You decide how much to bid for a click. This helps determine where your ad is displayed. For larger advertisers allow Google to optimise your bids based on a number of bidding strategies.
