What is a Pay-Per-Click (PPC) campaign and how can it improve marketing?


A PPC campaign is a type of online advertising. In this model, a company pays a fee each time someone clicks on their ads (other campaign strategy types are available). This can help your business attract more customers.  

You can run PPC ads on Google, Facebook, Bing ads and more. They appear on search engines, social media platforms, and the Google Display Network.  

We will create ads targeting your specific audience in a PPC campaign. These ads target keywords that are relevant to your products or services. We bid on these keywords to ensure that your ads reach the right people.  

When someone looks up certain words or phrases, the ad placements might appear at the top of the search results. It could also appear on the side of the page. The goal of a PPC campaign is to attract qualified leads and drive conversions through targeted relevant advertising.  

It is important to consider using a specialist Google Ads agency that specialises in day-to-day ad account management to ensure you get maximum ROI. 

A digital marketing strategy is a plan that outlines the steps a company will take to reach its marketing goals. You can do this by using online channels and technologies.  

To succeed, we’ll work with you to identify your target audience. By creating engaging content and utilising social media, SEO, your website, and other tactics to market your talents and business, you will be able to reach and engage with potential clients.  

There are many great benefits to using Pay-Per-Click advertising to drive more traffic to your site, including: 

  1. Visibility: Your ad is likely to feature in some of the more ‘visible’ areas of search engine results pages, so potential customers are more likely to click through to visit your website. 
  2. Immediate results: From the moment you set your ads live, you can start seeing results; unlike organic listings which can take weeks or even months to appear. 
  3. Easy to change: We can adjust ad spend to suit your budget, however large or small. 
  4. Cost-effective: You only pay when someone clicks on your ad or visits your website. 
  5. Targeted: To specific locations, demographics, and times of the day. 
  6. Measurable: Results are completely trackable so we can easily streamline and improve your advertising, and you can easily understand how your ads are performing. 

Your ad will appear in search results based not just on your bid, but several other factors including the quality and relevance of the web page it’s linking to. This means that if your page is of good quality and the search engine thinks it’s the best result, you could still appear above a competitor even if they bid more than you. You only pay when someone clicks on the ad to come to your website, hence “pay per click”. 

Factors we’ll consider when running and managing a PPC campaign include: 

  1. Which keywords you’d like your ad to appear for – these can range from your brand name to different products you sell or services you provide. More popular search terms are likely to cost more. 
  2. How much you’re willing to spend on each customer to click through to your site – this is called the cost-per-click (CPC) and you set ‘bids’ to show the maximum amount you want to spend. 
  3. What your ad or campaign will say – many search engines will analyse the quality of your advert text and use this to prioritise how often it’s shown. 

Pay-Per-Click advertising includes a lot of jargon and many terms you may not recognise – here are some of the important ones you may come across: 

  1. Ad Copy – the text within your ad 
  2. Ad Extensions – additional pieces of information you can include in your PPC ads, such as a phone number, or additional links to different pages on your website 
  3. Ad Group – a grouping of keywords that all fit into similar topics or target similar types of audience 
  4. Automated (Auto) Bidding – a feature that automatically adjusts bids to deliver a goal that you set. This may be a cost per acquisition or cost per view amongst other things. 
  5. Bid – the amount of money you’re willing to spend on each of your ads. Also known as a keyword bid. 
  6. Bid Modifiers – adjust a bid based on device, location, or time 
  7. Call Tracking – tracking the number of people that call your business as a result of having seen your ad 
  8. Click-Through Rate – a percentage measure of how many users have seen your ad, and ultimately choose to click on it 
  9. Conversion – the action you want your customer or visitor to make once they’ve come through to your site. Examples include purchasing a product, booking an appointment, or leaving their contact details 
  10. Conversion Rate – a percentage measure of how many users completed a conversion action (e.g. a call) after clicking through to your website 
  11. Conversion Tracking – a tool to help you see what actions a visitor takes on your site after interacting with your ad 
  12. Cost Per Conversion– the average amount you as an advertiser have paid for each conversion generated by an ad 
  13. Cost Per Click – the amount you as an advertiser will pay for each click on your ad 
  14. Display Network – known in Google as Google Display Ads, these are paid ads that use images or video in the creative rather than the simple text ads usually seen on search results pages 
  15. Geotargeting – a feature or tool that allows you to target your ads so they’re only seen by people within a certain location 
  16. Impressions – a count of each time your ad is shown on a search result page 
  17. Keyword – the specific phrase or search term you would like your ad to show for 
  18. Landing Page – the specific page you’d like your ad to take your visitors to 
  19. Match Type – rather than working out every word your customers might search for, match types allow your keywords to show for closely related similar searches 
  20. Quality Score – the rating used by search engines to determine the credibility, relevance, and strength of your ad, which is used when prioritising which ads are shown 
  21. Remarketing List (RLSA) – a function that allows you to re-target people who have already visited your site. You can shape your ads and bids to appeal to them in a different way
