Search Engine Optimisation is great – however it takes time to implement and even longer to take effect. If you’re really lucky then your changes could have an impact in a couple of days. If not, you have to be patient – it could take months.
For quicker, or more targeted, results you should consider Pay per Click. This is also known as PPC and the most well known example is Google Ads, AKA Adwords.
These are the adverts that you see at the top and bottom of your Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs) – the ones outlined in red in the image.
How does PPC work?
To get started you research the words and phrases that you think people will be using when searching for your business. Next, you create targeted adverts.
Then, when somebody enters your words in to Google’s search bar, Google will display your advert. If someone clicks on your ad to visit your website you pay Google an agreed fee.
Properly set-up and managed PPC is an incredibly effective way of putting your business right in front of your target audience. Precisely when they are looking for the products or services that you provide!
You only pay Google when someone clicks on your ad and you are in total control of your campaign and your budget. There are no minimum spends or time that your campaign has to run for and you can turn it on and turn it off whenever you like.
Campaigns such as this are quick to launch and seemingly easy to understand. However, if you’re not careful you do run the risk of simply topping up Google’s bank account. You must approach your PPC campaigns in a planned, controlled and properly managed manner.
