In order to generate leads – those people who are looking to invest in your products or services at the moment – some companies choose to use a marketing technique known as PPC. These are paid promotions whereby each time one of your PPC ads is clicked, you will pay a fee, and a potential client is sent to your website directly. It is important that your PPC ad campaign is crafted for conversions since you are paying a fee for each click that your ad receives. A paid click which simply results in a potential customer bouncing back to the previous website would be a waste of their time and your money, so it is essential that PPC ads are targeted and influential.
When investing in a PPC ad campaign, there is far more research and strategy involved than you may have expected. It is not as simple as slapping together an ad for your landscaping business and hoping it works. To get your ads in front of the right potential clients, you have to know exactly where they are, what they are looking for, and how best to target them to ensure the ad is effective. A generalized PPC ad campaign with a broad audience will either result in you running out of money because of too many false leads and unsubstantiated clicks or your ad being ignored because your audience has seen more ads like this one than they care to remember. For the leads and conversions you want (the objective of a good PPC campaign), you must know who your audience is and where they spend their time online.
Channels such as Google AdWords, Bing Advertising, and social media outlets such as Facebook and Instagram can be used for PPC ads. The most critical part of the PPC ad is that it has a specific target who is most interested in your landscaping services. Your ads must include keywords which have been successful throughout your SEO campaigns, copy that is pertinent and straightforward, and links which send potential clients to the right landing page. This will provide you with the best possible chance that they will contact you or complete whatever call to action you are hoping they will take.
