The online world of marketing can be very confusing for most, especially those who don’t understand it too well. The problem is, if you want to do the best business that you can, you need to understand it to at least a proficient degree, because if you don’t, you’re running the risk of losing out on potential customers and therefore money in your company account.

A top quality website, a working knowledge of SEO (Search Engine Optimisation), and an understanding of how to optimise Google for your benefit, are all basics of online marketing. If you lack these basics we advise you seek assistance and advice from a company such as Linked.ie.

Not everyone is technologically minded, and this can immediately put you at a disadvantage. If you can hire someone to help you with this side of things, you will more than make back your original investment when the rewards start rolling in.

What Is Pay Per Click And How Does It Work?

PPC service is a form of internet marketing. When a company (i.e. you)  places an ad, you then pay a small fee to the search engine when someone clicks on your ad. The fee is small, usually around the $3 mark, and when you consider the amount of profit you could make from a big sale as a result of that click, you’re making a big saving.

PPC service is basically a form of buying traffic to your site, and it can save time and money in the long run. One of the most popular forms of PPC is through advertising on a search engine. Think about Google for example, there are sponsored links down one side of the page, and these are PPC links. If you click on one of them, you will be taken to that particular company’s website; that company then pays Google the fee (around $3), and you decide whether to buy something from them or not. If you do, they make a profit, if you don’t, they don’t make anything. It’s that simple.

In order to make this work from a business point of view, it is about bidding on a particular keyword that is pertinent to your business. For example, if you are a company who specialises in TV cabinets, then you could bid on the keyword phrase ‘TV cabinet’ and anyone who searches for that will see your particular company towards the top of the results; this means they are more likely to click on your link, because we know that nobody really goes beyond the first page of the search results on Google, if not the first half a page.

How To Choose The Right Keywords

The right keywords are imperative to reaching the top of the search page. Of course, you need to know the keywords that are popular, in order to stand a chance of this, which is often a time consuming process. For this reason, it is often for your benefit  to outsource PPC services. If you decide to do it yourself, you need to do a lot of research into which keywords to go with, and then organise them into groups which will stand you in the best stead to make cash.

Keywords have to be relevant to your company, nothing too obscure or strange; it’s often best to be extremely obvious when picking keywords. On top of this, the keywords should be repetitive, and you should think of different keyword combinations too. Google AdWords is one of the most popular forms of PPC marketing, and this is where you pay a fee for this whole service to be practically done for you.

Is PPC Complicated?

PPC is not overly complicated, but if you fail to understand the basics, then you may fall foul of many common pitfalls. Going beyond the basics then will ensure your ad outperforms the rest.

As this has the potential to drastically increase traffic to your website, it’s always best to hold your hands up and pass the mantle onto experts. Whilst some people choose not to go down the Pay Per Click route, it’s certainly one of the most popular, and most successful ways to beat your competitors.
