93% of Searchers View Just Pay-Per-Click Ads and Natural Listings on Page 1
The typical searcher is creating more specific searches and 93% of them only review the search results on page 1. Just 7% of searchers will look at page 2, and only 1% will get as far as page 3. Unless you show on the first page, you will miss the mark. Pay-Per-Click advertising helps you reach your market where they are looking - on page 1.
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 Lists Your Company Ahead of Millions
Pay Per Click lets you jump ahead of millions of competing listings quickly. The search engines all use Pay-Per-Click as their primary advertising model. With Pay-Per-Click (PPC) you advertise with the search engines. You select the keywords you want to be found for and Google and Yahoo will feature you above millions.With Pay Per Click you only pay when people click on your listings. The display of your ad (also called an impression) is free. You bid against other advertisers and, in simple terms, the highest bidder gets rank first, the second highest is second, and so on (the actual ranking is based on a complex formula, but this demonstrates the general compcept).
With PPC advertising, pay-per-click lets you decide which keywords to be found for and what message should be shown in the search engine. You only pay for the clicks and not for the impressions (the mere display of the listing).
Comparing PPC clicks to a prequalification step, it quickly becomes apparent that these prequalified clicks are more valuable and can be extremely cost efficient. Remember - people who search and click are your best prospects - they are searching for what you offer.
Successful PPC Campaigns need Expert Pay Per Click Management
|Do you think your PPC bid management strategies are working? If you said "what strategies" you are in the right place. But seriously, most companies are scrambling to keep up, leaving most of the profits on the table.|
Did you know most campaigns contain at least 40% waste? A campaign with a budget of $20,000 can be throwing away $8,000 every month - $96,000 every year - on keywords that do not drive sales or leads. The problem is either you do not have enough keywords and are missing those that drive inexpensive conversions, you have too many keywords and do not know which are wasteful, or have a reasonable number of keywords but are unable to track and optimize the spend.
Suppose we identified and cut that $8,000 in waste. That's $96,000 to the bottom line.
But what if we put that $8,000 back into the campaign and spent it on the right keywords. You could increase your sales by 66% for the same monthly spend!
