Three top tips for Pay Per Click success

searching onlineWe believe Pay Per Click marketing is something of an art form, easy to setup but very difficult to get it right so it actually works really well for your business.  There are many elements that effect the success of any PPC campaign and they generally revolve around the three core rules that should always count. These are, 1. Relevance, 2. Clarity, 3. Distraction – the short ad text is not their to work alone, it should be designed to create interest and make the reader want to know more and click through.

So with all the above in mind you really need to take into account our top three tips to ensure your adverts have Pay Per Click success.

TIP 1: RELEVANCE: You need to make sure that what you say in the ad copy is what is on the page the ‘clicker’ click through to. So don’t say something that isn’t on your landing page and this is very relevant if you mention a specific product or offer…… you need to make very sure that same information is clearly obvious on the relevant landing page.

TIP 2: BE CLEAR: if you make an offer or discount in your PPC advert then that same offer or discount needs to be clearly visible on your landing page, if it isn’t then your bounce rate is only going one way – UP! be clear if offering a deal or else you will get found out..

TIP 3: KEEP THE FOCUS: When you write your PPC ad copy make sure its focussed on what you are offering and ensure this is carried over to the landing page, all PPC adverts work better when they are focused on very specific landing pages. So don’t use a page that is generic, too many PPC adverts head just to a home page and then a business wonders why a ‘clicker’ then doesnt carry out any action. If you think about it a ‘clicker’ has two choices, either A carry out an action i.e. buy the product, or B leave – so be careful about cluttering the landing pages with links to lots of other products or services.

If your business is struggling with its Pay Per Click management or even if you don’t think its working for you after spending a considerable budget (quite common) then why not get in touch for a no obligation appraisal – what have you got to loose?

Target your Pay Per Click advertising

One of the key elements of any Pay Per Click campaign is to define who you audience for this actually is.  If you can discover who your target audience is this can often not just help your Pay Per Click campaign but also other marketing campaigns across your business.

So how do you do this, well why not ask yourself 5 simple questions

  • Who am I targeting with this campaign?
  • Where do my ideal customers live?
  • Why does my target audience need this product or service?
  • How are my competitors ranking for this target area?
  • What’s are the demographic of my potential customers?

If you can answer at least some of these questions then you will be well on the way to success, and wont be wasting money on needless click throughs.

Take for example the search on Google on the phrase mini skip hire newton abbot, so you can take it from this, a product that the user is searching for and then a geographic location.  So then we have presented very high in the listings – Skip Hire in Hampshire or even the example in Birmingham.

Now it may well be that they deliver nationally, but how likely is a user to click on that and if they do and discover that you don’t deliver nationally then your Pay Per Click budget is being needlessly wasted by not following the really simple steps to getting it right?

So if your business is struggling with its Pay Per Click management or even if you dont think its working for you after spending a considerable budget (quite common) then why not get in touch for a no obligation appraisal – what have you got to loose?
