How Beneficial is a PPC Campaign for
your Online Business?
PPC (Pay per Click) is an online marketing strategy used to advertise
websites online which costs the advertiser on a per click basis—the price is determined by the value of the keyword. When someone uses the search engines and visits a website by clicking on the advertisement, the advertiser is then charged the amount which they will pay to the search engine provider.
PPC campaigns were introduced in 2002. It is not a new idea in internet marketing technique, but it is one of the most effective methods to maximise exposure, increase return-on-investment and generate more visits to your website, thereby increasing your chances for sales.
PPC campaigns can be highly beneficial to online businesses to generate more visits to websites. You must target quality, effective and relevant keywords. You can set up budgeted campaigns—setting a daily/weekly etc budget, change your advertisements regularly and ‘test and measure’ what people are really looking for.
An effective and robust campaign can yield great profits in a very short time.
In general, PPC campaigns can be an easy way to generate traffic and responses. It is an effective way of marketing services and products utilising the right keywords and depending on the competitiveness of the keyword, can be inexpensive and cost-effective (a highly competed for keyword will not be cheap). An experienced SEO specialist can help you create an effective and well-managed PPC Campaign.
My Melbourne Gig!
Last September 2010, I attended a seminar in Melbourne about SEO techniques. It was a great opportunity for me to learn more about Search Engine Optimisation. Again, it was a great chance for me to meet lots of people, discuss, eat and share common thoughts.
