Why PPC?

The Search Engine Results Page (SERP)

It’s getting tougher out there!

Search for anything on Google or Bing now and one thing stands out with the returned search results….an ever increasing amount of space is being given to paid ads. This is no wonder really, Google, for example, does make 97% of their revenue from paid advertising! This image of the results page shows what an average user would see on a desktop – all paid ads.

The reality is that all businesses, including those relying on organic search engine optimisation (SEO) strategies, face losing ever more valuable screen ‘real estate’ to paid advertising. Additionally and crucially, more and more people search on mobile devices and this is where Google excels, providing ‘call’ and ‘message’ buttons to make it very easy for searchers to contact advertisers.

Organic SEO vs Pay Per Click (PPC)

It’s all about maximising budgets & ROI.

    Just to be clear, I’m not for one moment saying SEO isn’t important, it is, and I always advise my clients that their website should be optimised for organic search for two main reasons; maximising online visibility and improved user experience.

That said, even with a well optimised site, realistically, the dominance of Google and Bing means that an increasing number of businesses, even those with decent budgets for content creation, are finding that just relying on monthly organic SEO doesn’t deliver a sustainable ROI to generate new sales leads and maintain online visibility.

This is where PPC can deliver!

Pay Per Click (PPC) Advertising

Just what it says – only pay when someone clicks on your advert
  • null
    I believe that PPC is a highly effective and measurable channel to generate sales leads and visibility for almost all types business. It does require time and money but increasingly businesses are deciding this is time and money well spent! Let me summarise some of the advantages of PPC…
  • null
    Visibility – Getting your message in front of your target market is crucial. PPC allows targeting at a very granular level. This means that you choose the locations (even down to postcode areas if required) in which you advertise and also which particular ad is shown. You can also remarket; track past website visitors to display ads to them as they move around the internet.
  • null
    Measurability – Unlike traditional channels like TV, radio and print advertising, ROI for online marketing is highly measurable. PPC is one of the most measurable of all online channels. SEO, in comparison, is getting much harder to measure, with keywords ’not provided’ and ever-increasing personalisation of user’s search results making ROI very inaccurate.
  • null
    Speed – For businesses wanting to generate sales leads quickly (who doesn’t!) PPC is a great marketing channel. For startups and businesses new to marketing, perhaps still working on their SEO, it can not only generate leads but also provide valuable data as to what keywords are converting and therefore worth trying to rank organically for too.
  • null
    Space – If you look at the top paid ads in the search results you’ll see the ad itself and then additional information. These are ad extensions and show for sales and services messages, prices, telephone numbers, text messages, location, reviews, ratings and more. It’s no wonder, as the SERP image above shows, paid advertising dominates search results.
  • null
    Edge – Well structured and maintained PPC campaigns generate sales leads and ROI. With more businesses understanding the benefits of PPC even if your competitors aren’t currently running paid advertising, there is a chance they will soon. Get the edge on your competitors and grab those sales leads before them. Can you afford not to?
  • null
    Scalability – Marketing/Sales resource is a challenge that faces all businesses. To increase offline sales leads you need extra time and people. However with a PPC campaign with a proven ROI you can increase your budget and your leads and profits will increase with it.

ABOUT ME

How I Can Help

Know where this photo was taken?

This is in La Paz, Bolivia in 2006 before setting off to acclimatise on smaller mountains before attempting the ultimate objective which was the huge white mountain behind me called Illimani which is 21,200 feet or 6,460 metres.

Some 15 days later I was stood on the top of Illimani (I’m in the blue) looking down on La Paz.

Illimani

It was an amazing expedition in an amazing country and memories I’ll always treasure.

PRICING

Competitive Rates & Professional Service

Retainer Pricing

To keep your monthly budget forecasting consistent and also my billing transparent, rather than charge a percentage of spend or some other combination I charge a flat fee based on the amount of my time and expertise required to build, maintain and grow a profitable PPC campaign. Actual ad click costs are billed by Google or Bing directly to you.

My minimum monthly retainer pricing for PPC management is £250 (excl. VAT) which, depending on the size of your account, could cover everything, with the exception of the ad clicks themselves.

If you have a larger, more complex, account requiring more of my management time, the same applies, I’ll charge a flat fee based on the amount of my time required on the account.
