Pay per click, often known as PPC, is a powerful form of search engine advertising. It allows you to get your products and services in front of potential customers by targeting the keywords they use when searching online.
When you use a search engine, you will usually see some sponsored results at the top of the page. These are pay per click adverts. Their prominent position means they are highly likely to be clicked on, therefore making PPC an effective method of search engine advertising.
In order for your ads to appear to the relevant people, keywords and phrases related to your products and services are entered into search engine advertising platforms such as Google AdWords and Bing Ads.
Each time a potential customer types a relevant keyword or phrase in to the search engine, your advert is triggered to be shown. A cost is accrued each time someone clicks on your advert. You set a monthly budget which is divided between the days in that month, so you're always in control of your spend.
Your PPC advertising campaign can be targeted to specific audiences, locations, devices (such as mobile or PC), and even time of day. This ensures that your campaign is tailored to suit the needs of your business, allowing you to get the most from it.
Google also offers the Google Shopping network, which works slightly differently. Instead of triggering text based adverts, information about your specific products can be submitted to the Google Merchant Centre.
When someone searches for this particular product, your ad is shown with an image and price, allowing customers to make an informed decision before clicking through to your website and purchasing. Click here to find out more about Google Shopping Advertising.
