PPC & PAID ADVERTISING

The top 3 paid advertising spots get 46% of the clicks on a search engine result page (SERP). That’s a lot of clicks.

For any company trying to attract new business, reaching potential customers quickly and efficiently is of paramount importance. PPC advertising is a crucial element of online marketing that can do just that.

Whether it’s Google Ads, Bing Ads, Facebook Ads or X (Twitter) Promote, PPC ensures that your website generates more traffic and more leads, by being in front of the right people at the right time in their journey.

Pay Per Click

What is PPC?

PPC or Pay Per Click is an online advertising model in which every time one of your adverts is clicked, you pay a small fee to the platform. When managed correctly, that fee is trivial as the visit is worth much more than what you pay for it.

The beauty of PPC is that it allows you to reach your ideal audience instantly by specifying when your ads are shown. There are different types of PPC ads, but one of the most common is paid search ads. These ads appear within search engines results pages (SERP) when specific keywords are used. Other types of PPC include video ads, social media ads, display ads and shopping ads.
