Steps to Sizzle Your PPC Campaign
Pay per Click is recognized as an effective advertising campaign solution to get traffic to the website and increase conversion rate. On the other hand, some owners would consider this a risky campaign because of their limited understanding on how to set up and run it.
Goal Setting. The most challenging stage is to set goals for your campaign. Campaigns fail because owners and marketers alike do not put enough effort in the preliminary stages.
Take some opportunity to decide what you want to achieve and how you want to do it. Take a look at the latest PPC trends and perform an initial analysis to help you define clear and measurable goals.
Choosing Keywords. Determining what keyword should go with your marketing campaign is the next step. Looking for potential keywords for your business, beginning with the most precise and relevant phrases for your niche or topic, is one of the most important steps to optimize your campaign.
Budget. In any project, budget settings come as the next essential step especially when there is plenty of keywords competition. However, if you have a tight budget turning PPC campaigns on and off based on the season(s) or a holiday would be a comprehensive strategy for maximizing your returns on investment (ROI).
Ad Placement Targeting. Another strategy to work is to create a placement targeting of your Google Adwords. Placement Targeting allows you to choose websites or a section of where you want your ads to show. It is a strategy to test out advertising on a site or section of the site that has a rate card beyond your current budget. Decide on how and where your ad will appear and how to drive visitors to your landing page. Get it to your target audience.
Location. Target a specific location to ensure that people who are in the geographical market will see your ad.
Language, Network, and Devices. Ensure your ads will appear on specific devices, are available on your product’s dominant market language, and ad servers are up all the time.
To make your PPC campaign sizzle, synchronize the message you want to push in your PPC ads and the message in PR, online media buys as well as print advertising. Through this, your company’s presence, brand recognition, and product/service trust are solidified. Determine which PPC strategy is best for your online business and always test which works best.
