Google AdWords Pay-Per-Click (PPC) Advertising Campaigns

What is PPC Advertising?

PPC, or Pay-Per-Click, advertising is a form of online advertising in which you are only charged when a prospective client clicks on your ad. Search engines, such as Google, and social media platforms, such as Facebook, make this available by displaying your ads at the top of search results, in news feeds, and throughout their networks. The price per click is determined by auction; the highest bidder with the highest quality, relevant ad gets the best placement.

Types of PPC Campaigns


Be where people are looking for you. Search campaigns run text ads that appear on search engine result pages when a user types in a query. Users see these ads when their search query matches words and phrases that a business has targeted. Businesses can use these keywords to specifically target prospective clients in need of their products or services.


Boost awareness. Unlike search ads, which are limited to search result pages, display ads show visual media on other websites and platforms. A display ad can come in the form of an image ad on the side of a website article, a video ad that plays before a YouTube video, a shopping advertisement, or a social media post on Facebook or LinkedIn. While search ads are geared toward people already on the path to making a purchasing decision, display ads plant a seed in the mind of the user for a time when they are ready to search and make a decision.


Make your brand stick. Online advertising platforms allow you to utilize cookie data to show ads to users after they have engaged with your website or social media. Remarketing campaigns allow your brand to remain at the forefront of the consumers thought, and can be controlled by choosing the interval that an ad is displayed to an individual.

Why Use PPC Marketing?

It’s Fast

PPC marketing is quick to establish, and quick to see results. If you want to promote a new product, you can drive traffic within minutes of launching a new PPC campaign.

It’s Direct

PPC marketing allows you to target specific search phrases and people in order to maximize conversions. Instead of pushing your promotions in front of people, you’re pulling people to your products and services.

It’s Cost-Effective

While the cost-per-click varies based on industry and competition, the benefits associated with that click make it a bargain. With correctly established PPC advertising, you can rest knowing that your money is being spent on people who are actually interested in your products and services. These services also allow you to set budgets so you never spend more than you intend.

It’s Trackable

These PPC services allow you to monitor who is responding to your ads and how they’re getting there. Not only is this beneficial for showing results and improving efforts, but you are then able to retarget your ads based on previous conversion data to further increase sales.
