Pay Per Click & Search Engine Marketing

PPC & SEM

SEM strategy and PPC many times go hand in hand

PPC or Pay Per Click advertising is a model of internet marketing that lets you place an ad in search engine results without having to “earn” that spot. Search marketing is the process of gaining traffic and visibility from search engines through both paid and unpaid efforts. 

PPC & SEM

The unique advantage of PPC marketing is that Google (and other ad networks) don’t just reward the highest bidders for that ad space, they reward the highest-quality ad

Pay Per Click (PPC) & Search Engine Marketing (SEM)

PPC and SEM are two additional ways you can market your brand on search engines. One of them is free, the other isn’t, but day in and day out these methods prove to be very effective.

Ask yourself…

What does keyword research mean for you and your business? 

Paid Search Ads and Advertising

Paid search ads is an advertising system that allows you to bid on keywords relevant to your niche. When a searcher enters any of these keywords, your ads will appear in Google search results – if you managed to win a bidding war that is.

Paid search advertising includes:

  • search engine marketing (SEM);
  • pay-per-click (PPC);
  • search engine optimization (SEO);
  • cost-per-click (CPC);
  • cost-per-impression (CPM);
  • paying for placement;
  • sponsored listing;

PPC (pay-per-click)

Pay-per-click is an internet advertising model which allows you to use search engine advertising to gain traffic to your website. Since PPC is based on keyword and phrase bidding, advertisers pay a fee every time someone clicks on company’s ad. Benefits of PPC marketing are numerous:

  • PPC is trackable and measurable and will provide you with an insight into traffic changes to your site, a number of impressions, conversions, and clicks, as well as the amount of budget you have spent.
  • PPC helps you increase traffic to your website, achieve brand exposure and land sale business goals;
  • PPC is highly customizable and will let you choose the keywords, target audience, location, budget and the amount you are willing to spend.
  • PPC allows remarketing as a great way of repeatedly showing your ads to people who visited your website but didn’t make a purchase.

 

The successful PPC advertising is being able to place your ad as high as possible while cutting down your cost-per-click. And we can help. We will:

  • Adjust and analyze data to improve the performance of the ad;
  • Track your incomes and expenses so you can keep your budget leveled;
  • Determine the best performing keywords;
  • Combine PPC and organic search marketing, which can lead to the top of Google search results;
  • Improve your website’s loading times;
  • Ensure that your landing page is optimized;
  • Use site links in ads to attract clicks;

PPC (pay-per-call)

Pay-per-call is a model of advertising in which advertiser is getting paid based on the number of telephone calls they receive. Instead of digital traffic or web leads, advertisers pay for calls.

Benefits of a pay-per-call:

  • Customers can inquire about the product before purchasing it;
  • People using smartphones will be calling straight from the website search;  
  • One call has much higher value than one click;
  • Pay-per-call can be used anywhere because of its unique tracking numbers;

CPC (cost-per-click)

Cost-per-click is the price that advertiser pays for each click in their PPC marketing campaigns.

CPC depends on factors like quality score, maximum bids, and rank of the ad with the same keyword that you share with other advertisers.

We will determine the quality of traffic you are getting for the price, with the idea to improve the value of each visit while lowering the price of each click.

This can be achieved by:

  • Boosting your quality score;
  • Finding valuable, new and relevant keywords;
  • Eliminating irrelevant keywords;
  • Finding quality long tail keyword alternatives.

CPM (cost-per-thousand impressions)

CPM is an internet advertising model in which advertiser pays for one thousand impressions on their page regardless of whether the ad is clicked on or not. Since CPM does not measure the number of clicks, you will not be able to determine the effectiveness of your campaign. However, this method is great for increasing brand awareness.

PPC vs SEM

Search engine marketing (or SEM) is a form of marketing that is built upon the premise of promoting your website on various search engines. It relies on a set of practices that will increase the visibility of your site, without having to pay for it. SEM results are long-lasting, but a lot tougher to achieve.

PPC, on the other hand, is a system in which the advertiser only pays when someone clicks on the ad. PPC is a quick and easy way to skyrocket your ad to the top of the search engine results. Display, search and affiliate advertising all fall into PPC category.

Finally, the best bet would be to have both SEM and PPC for your advertising campaign. SEM will give long-term and steady traffic to your site, and PPC will get audience quickly to your website.
