Tips For A PPC Search Campaign
Intro of PPC ? The world has become digital, so
has the advertising space. Earlier the businesses
use traditional forms of advertising like the
direct mail, TV, Radio and even print
advertising. But as the world evolved digitally,
the advertising space transformed itself from
traditional methods of advertising to digital
methods of advertising. One of the very popular
forms of online advertising is the Pay Per Click
Marketing. Over the years it has proved its worth
of being one of the set platforms for online

dynamic in nature and is always changing. Hence,
more often it comes up with new updated. By being
a PPC marketer, you should constantly find ways
to make sure that your clients get their desired
results. You should try to get more exposure and

new tips and techniques from experts around you.
Even if you are an advanced professional in PPC,
you can still improve your capabilities. Pay Per
Click Marketing has a plethora of information
which keeps changing as the new updates are
released. There is a lot more to learn apart
from the popular concepts like the Quality Score,
Landing Page Optimization, Keywords, etc.
Perhaps, you just cannot spend all your time
looking for information from anywhere. Dont
worry! You need not go through heaps of books to
get the relevant knowledge about PPC. With

information have also evolved. And now a
reliable blog is the best way to gather the

can learn from trial and error, sometimes one
single mistake in PPC can prove to be very
costly. And it is but obvious that you would not
like to make disastrous mistakes in PPC when you
can easily the learn how to get optimal results
through the PPC
  • blogs. Here are top 12 PPC Blogs that can surely
    provide you with ample information to make your
    next PPC Campaign strategy a success.
  • 10 Tips For A More Effective Paid Search
  • Show when it counts- Adjust your campaign to
    consider user peak times. If your target
    audience is primarily searching for your products
    between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on weekdays, then only
    show your ads during these times. Within its
    Edit Campaign Settings Google has a handy
    option called Ad Scheduling, which allows you to
    automatically turn your campaigns on and off at
    specific times. Whats more, if there is a peak
    time of day when your customers tend to search
    then you can even up the budget at that time and
    lower it at others.
  • Choose keywords carefully- Various tools will
    help find specific keywords or phrases that are
    being used by your audience. You can pay to use
    tools such as Keyword Discovery, but a free and
    easy way to find out is to use Googles Keyword
    Tool (accessible when youre logged in to
    AdWords). To use it, you type in your term and
    the tool instantly gives you variations people
    have searched for, a rough idea of the number of
    searches, the advertising competition against
    those terms, and, if you add a max CPC, an
    estimate of the position and cost for each term.
  • Select longer tail terms- Another useful aspect
    of the Google keyword tool is that it can help
    you find Longer Tail terms. Longer Tail terms are
    ones that appeal to users searching for very
    niche or specific items. For example, a generic
    term from the B2B world would be valve. A Long
    Tail term would be pneumatic pilot valve. If
    your budget is limited, it is worth avoiding the
    high cost generic terms and trying to pick up
    traffic from people doing very specific
    searches. Not only will the CPC be significantly
    cheaper, but youll tend to find that prospects
    know exactly what they want, and the quality and
    number of inquiries resulting from the clicks
    will be much higher.
  • Go negative to be positive- Staying with
    Keywordsthink negative! A lot of keywords are
    included in B2B, B2C, and general social
    searches. Appearing in the results for anything
    other than your target market is a waste of time
    and potentially a waste of money. Adding
    negative keywords is an ideal way to exclude your
    campaigns from areas that are not relevant to
    you and enquiries you cannot fulfill. For
    example, if your company sells power tools but
    you dont rent them, then words like rent,
    hire, or lease would be your negative
  • Think seasonal- Some products are going to be
    more or less popular depending on certain times
    of the year due to holidays, weather, or major
    events. If your business sells seasonable
    products, it may be worth upping your spend in
    the months leading up to these high- demand
    times to reap the extra trafficand profits. To
    the same effect, if seasonal keywords are not
    part of your core business, focus your energy
    elsewhere until the excitement (and bid price)
  • Ad copy is key- Youve spent ages picking
    quality keywords and setting up your campaigns
    and hopefully now your CPC ad appears high on the
    Search Enginesyoure there in

  • front of your potential customers, so dont fall
    at the last hurdle. Ad copy is one of the single
    most important components in differentiating you
    from your competitor. To help improve your copy,
    try Googles Dynamic Keyword Insertion Tool.
    Automatically adding the keyword someone
    searched for into the ad copy is an easy way to
    ensure relevancy in the eyes of both Google and
    users, but is no longer the most effective. This
    is a trick that many people already know and it
    is therefore overused. Try to use distinctive,
    even quirky, verbiage to catch your prospects
    eye. Include a major call to action if you have
    a unique selling proposition or new offer, say
  • Back it up- Dont think of your other
    promotions, be they offline or online, as
    separate entities. People may see your print ad,
    for example, and remember the creative and the
    product youre selling but not your company
    name. If they typed your latest marketing slogan
    into a search engine, would a recognizable CPC
    ad appear for your company taking them to your
    site for more information? If not, then you
    could be missing out. Likewise, the only thing
    they may remember from your print ad or trade
    show booth is your company name, so make sure
    your ads are appearing when someone is searching
    for you by name (and dont just bank on your
    company appearing on the first page of organic
  • Go vertical- Google AdWords allows you to
    display your ads across their content and
    partner networks. However, the content network is
    not always great for the B2B market, as it
    relies on Google understanding the contextual
    content of pages and then only bringing your ad
    back on the pages that are relevant. To make ads
    more effective, you can specify the sites you
    wish your adverts to appear on by creating a
    placement targeted campaign.
  • Another option for reaching a more focused,
    relevant audience is vertical search engine
    advertising. Because of their more segmented
    nature, vertical search engines reach a very
    targeted audience, and often produce far better
    quality traffic at the same or smaller spend
    levels than youll find with their general
    search engine counterparts.
  • Go local versus international- Is your business
    local or international? If its international,
    you may need to set up campaigns on a country by
    country basis and tailor your keywords and ads
    to the various languages, time-zones, product
    variations, specific landing pages, etc. Also,
    determine your businesss capabilities. If you
    can only deliver locally, there is no point
    displaying your ads to the whole US. Google
    allows you to target your ads (based on users IP
    addresses) to a named state or town, a radius
    around a specific location, or even a specified
    geographic area of your choice.
  • Use CPC management tools (Google AdWords)- In
    addition to Googles keyword tool, there are two
    others that are particularly helpful. The first
    is AdWords Editor. Its a free tool that offers
    you great control over multiple and/or large
    campaigns. The benefits include uploading bulk
    campaigns and keywords, making multiple changes
    to any part of the campaign, getting stats
    across all campaigns, etc. The second tool is
    Googles Search Query Performance Reports. These
    reports show you what people are searching for to
    trigger your ads, which you can then use to
    adapt both your CPC words and the content on your
    site for SEO.

Hopefully youve discovered a few new ideas from
our list of top tips for effective CPC
advertising. Adding these to your repertoire of
online marketing tools can help improve your
current (and future) online advertising campaigns
without expending a vast amount of resources. 10
