Those companies that offer pay-per-click advertising must be amazed at just how much money some businesses waste in useless advertising, I know that I see it every day when using the search engines. If only I could get one tenth of one tenth of all that wasted money I’d be wealthy beyond my wildest dreams. Creating an effective PPC campaign could therefore save you thousands while generating a return on investment and as such it’s an important part of doing business online. It doesn’t really matter if you’ve a bricks and mortar business or purely an online business, everyone needs to learn how to market their business online to the best of their capability. One key ingredient of this involves using PPC campaigns. A PPC campaign is a per-per-click campaign that you can carry out using different providers, from Google AdWords to Facebook.

Research It

Spend some time each week staying up to date on new trends, up and coming companies and movers and shakers in your industry. Researching your industry and keeping your finger on the pulse can help you understand how this can affect keywords, searching habits and more.

Refine It

Once you have a campaign running you should always seek to improve it based on the information you discover in the reports and also based on your research. You can always make it better that is why online marketing is so challenging because you can change something on the fly, fixing mistakes and making improvements as you notice them unlike traditional advertising.

Track It

One thing that separates the amateur from the professional PPC user is tracking, a professional user will always keep track of every campaign they carry out. They don’t just reply on the money generated, instead they seek to know if what they are doing is having an impact on your ROI so that they can replicate it and improve upon it, rather than the amateur who simply trusts to blind luck.

Study It

Study every single aspect of your PPC campaigns, know where each click is coming from and why. Everything can be measured and due to that fact, anything can be studied and you can then figure out what makes your PPC campaigns better, worse or indifferent.

Combine It

PPC campaigns are all well and good but you shouldn’t ignore other aspects of online marketing and especially your organic search results. Organic search combined with PPC is an awesome combination as one complements the other and you can improve your ROI tremendously. Plus, as an added bonus your website is more than likely to be served higher in the search results with a combined effort.

Optimize It

As you learn more about pay-per-click and keyword matching types, as well as other ways that you can optimize the search potential of any keyword, phase, etc., you will be able to create even better returns on investment.

Extend It

Try using ad extensions when offered, such as URL links, click to call, user rankings and more in your ads to get even more interest by those who find your information through keyword search. Seeing more information in a search result will help a user make better decisions before clicking through to your information.

Increase Your PPC Campaign Budget

If a small budget is giving you a good return on your investment, it just goes to show that a larger budget will also give you a good return on investment when used on previously tested ad campaigns. For example, you might have a 5 percent ROI rate now; even if your campaign stays at 5 percent, increasing your budget will increase your revenue.

Improving your PPC campaigns is something that should be a continual process, take your time and move carefully into the PPC arena, but don’t wait too long because PPC is one way to increase your revenue and get lots of buzz quickly. PPC in combination with other online marketing efforts will see the best results of all as you will be touching your prospects multiple times.

When I'm not designing websites, doing this online marketing stuff or writing. I love nothing more than getting out on a weekend and scuba diving. I'm a qualified rescue diver and love getting wet in the waters around Perth and Rottenest Island. I also cycle, which must be a sight as I'm not the thinnest of people (lol)... and a paddle on a kayak or a swim helps makes most weeks, perfect. At home I have a marine reef tank, which I just love and on top of that I've an awesome dog, called Ziggy.
