Pay Per Click Places You Where Your Customers Look: Page 1
Recent studies have shown that most searchers are now looking at just the first page of search results on Google and Yahoo. Pay-Per-Click advertising allows you to feature your company on that first page with the keywords you want. Fewer than 7% are looking at page two and beyond. They have less time to spend on search, and do not have the patience to dig through search results. Using PPC advertising to get your message in front of them is the key..
This raises a critical issue: you must be seen to be found; you must be found to get the clicks; you must get the clicks to secure new business. Identifying the right keywords and listing them in a managed pay-per-click campaign is essential to driving revenue and achieving a solid ROI.
Pay-Per-Click Features You at the Top
|With hundreds of thousands - or even millions - of competing pages in search marketing you need to be at the top to be seen - at a minimum, on the first three pages. With PPC advertising you appear ahead of established and new competitors with ease.The engines now sell the top featured listings as pay-per-click ads. These advertisements literally place you ahead of millions of other results and you only pay if the searcher clicks on your listing!|
These listings receive approximately 40% of all clicks; when looking at clicks that lead to a transaction (a purchase or lead) that number climbs significantly. More importantly, the people searching and clicking are your best prospects - they are proactively searching for what you offer.
