PPC Success The Insiders’ Story

Posted by @ 4:55 pm

Being new to Search engine optimization can be daunting when your brand new site has just gone live and you have found out front page listing on the organic results in Google cannot be done over night. So you decide on Pay per click advertising the fast and cost effective method to get your new site noticed quickly. Below are some simple tips to maintain a good working relationship between client and provider

Let the experts run the show.
You do not need to spend each day staring at click reports, changing keywords and doing keyword research. That is what you are paying the PPC company for.

Be realistic.
The traffic will come but be patient. A quality PPC provider will take their time to work out what the best approach is to meet the sites traffic goals.

Going in all guns blazing buying up every conceivable keyword for your site is not often the best option for the sponsored listings. With a new campaign you do not need ownership of all the keywords relevant to your site, because as yet you do not know which keywords will convert and if the PPC provider is experienced and competent, they will have a good idea as to what keywords will convert and which ones will not.

Be serious.
Take the time to invest in a quality landing page and develop your site to increase conversion. There is nothing more frustrating when a client leaves a PPC program because they were getting the traffic but no sales Pay-per-click advertising will provide the traffic but what is done with that traffic is entirely up to you.

Use the PPC campaign to benefit your organic listings.
Running a PPC campaign has no direct effect on organic listing but the indirect effects are often overlooked and poorly utilized. The campaign will provide accurate keyword data you can see what key phrases have a high click-thru rate, and what terms actually convert. It will also allow people to find you site a lot more easily than a similar priced organic campaign and potentially get them to link to your site.

Effectively managing the relationship between client and Pay per click provider will take the guesswork and stress out of running the campaign and allow you more time to concentrate on the organic results and site conversion.
