Master List Of PPC Tools & Resources
Posted by Surround Integrated on May 17th, 2017
PPC advertising, also know as Pay Per Click advertising, is one of the most profitable marketing strategies, and is an essential component for online business success with digital marketing campaigns. PPC is a component of SEM (Search Engine Marketing) as a way to target people using Google, Yahoo, Bing and other search engines who are looking for similar products or services that your business offers. Through PPC campaigns, you can target certain groups of people that you want to see your advertisements while they are searching the internet using similar keyword searches that are relevant to your products or services.
There are benefits to PPC, both with cost efficiency and increased engagement to your website. The pricing model of a PPC campaign, as the name suggests, is you only pay when someone clicks on your advertisement (CPC); or when your ad is served impressions (CPM). It is important to budget yourself carefully, so you’re not exhausting your money without receiving any results. If done properly, a successful campaign will lead to positive interaction with your advertisements, increased brand awareness and ultimately lead to leads or sales.
PPC is not easy, unless you know what you’re doing and you have the right tools to manage it. It is collaborative and ongoing, as it requires constant strategizing and optimization.
Our Digital Marketing Manager, Scott Moodie, has created a working list of important PPC articles, resources, and tools he uses when running successful campaigns.
