What is PPC?
PPC marketing is a form of paid marketing by which the advertiser pays a fee each time an advertisement is clicked and the advertiser’s site is visited. As opposed to SEO, where site visits are earned organically or social media marketing, where social media pages reference or link to a site, PPC is a way of purchasing site visits. When properly run and maintained, paid advertisements often serve as an expedient way to generate traffic, leads and increased business. PPC campaigns can be run on search engines, such as Google or Bing, or on social media sites, such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram.

The premise of a paid ad is that advertisers bid on placement on a search engine’s sponsored link area. Usually, the very top of a search engine result page have paid ads. When setting up a PPC campaign, an advertiser selects keywords or queries he or she wishes to bid on; that keyword or query is then entered into the ad “auction” with a maximum bid and the associated advertisement.
The maximum bid is set by the advertiser, while the quality score is a number determined by Google based on keyword relevance and landing page quality. Google will multiply the maximum bid by the quality score, and the ad with the highest numerical answer will rank highest. This is beneficial because it means you do not necessarily have to be the highest bidder to receive premier placement.
Just like organic search engine results, the higher the placement of the ad, the more traffic and leads it is likely to generate. Every time the ad is clicked on, the advertiser will pay for the click; the amount per click is dependent upon the industry and keyword search volume. Each campaign allows a budget to be set; the ad will turn off once that budget is met to guarantee that an advertiser does not spend above budget. A well-run PPC marketing campaign can yield high return on investment for you.
Through paid ads, an advertiser is placed directly in the eyes of a searcher that is actively seeking a product or service; it is therefore a quick and efficient way to gain website traffic and leads. This in turn can result in new customers a more profitable bottom line.
