As a paid search agency, we know paid search advertising is invariably the quickest and easiest way of reaching that most vital of audiences – those who are looking for an organisation such as yours, at the exact time they are looking for you.
As such, a strong paid search campaign is regularly the ‘lowest hanging fruit’ available to our clients, and more often than not it also forms the basis of an effective campaign. It may come as no surprise to learn that this is something of a specialism for us…
Also known as PPC, Pay Per Click, Google AdWords, Bing Ads, sponsored ads and more. Through paid search we are able to reach audiences with specific demands at the exact time they are looking to satisfy those demands – and we can make sure that our client’s name is top of their list.
Our advice to clients is that paid search is the foundation of any advertising strategy. Burst campaigns in display have their place but organisations need to ensure that they have continued search activity. This is the activity that is going to convert and provide a considerable return on investment.
Focusing on traffic that is going to convert is at our core. There are many factors that have to be scrutinised, some major strategies to be implemented and a whole host of minute tweaks. When taken together this all yields big results.
Developing a full knowledge of the campaign is key, including the objectives and the audience.
Setting up Analytics to ensure that all activity is trackable and that conversions are reporting. This is absolutely crucial in order to optimise campaigns and ensure the best possible ROI.
Focused campaigns optimised into niche ad groups with pinpoint targeting to cut through the competition at minimal cost. It all starts with the account structure.
Exhaustive development of the multiple keywords variants to make sure that we capture the traffic we want, and filter out that which we don’t.
We have the tools, the time and the interest to develop a clear picture of each search market we enter. This includes seasonal factors, timings, regional variants, and competition. From here we are quickly able to establish where the opportunities are and to exploit these on behalf of our clients.
Also known as A/B testing. Every organisation’s audiences are different and we tenaciously test what works and use that to attract more users likely to convert. Precision crafted ads to attract the eye, answer user’s queries and point them to your site. All in less than 100 characters. Easy.
Local search allows you to target users within your target area. An increasing number of people now use mobile devices to search for local businesses and services. Google also estimate that 27% of offline purchases begin on a smart phone. This means that the ability to effectively target local users is now pivotal to offline, as well as online, success.
Our Local Search strategy specialists can help you to maximise the resources within Google AdWords and Google My Business to ensure that you can maximise on those local micro-moments.
