Why you should “do” PPC, Stockport

PPC is absolutely necessary in the digital marketing world.

A staggering 50% of small businesses in the UK depend on paid advertising to increase their website traffic and conversions. If you’re not using a PPC agency, you’re clearly missing out on a ton of visitors and heaps of money that could propel your business to new heights. Still not convinced? Well, maybe this will change your mind.

  • Target specific audiences based on location, interests, demographics and more. Because who wouldn’t want to exploit every potential customer? 
  • Set customised budgets to avoid overspending, because we all know how companies hate wasting money
  • Only pay when someone actually clicks on your ad, because who needs to pay for anything else?
  • Monitor everything in real-time so you can constantly tweak your campaigns and squeeze out every last drop of ROI. Because nothing says success like manipulating your marketing efforts to make the most money possible

Achieving success with PPC campaigns is not as easy as just setting up ads and paying for clicks. It actually requires a lot of technical expertise and a deep understanding of the platform’s algorithm and campaign management tools. Lucky for you, our Stockport PPC agency is here to save the day and make you more famous than The Blossoms.

Here’s what you can expect:

Search Ads

PPC ads, the OG. The big shot. Search ads, also called paid search or PPC ads, are a form of online advertising.

Businesses bid on keywords or phrases, hoping their ads will show up on SERPs. These ads are usually at the top or bottom of the search results and are labelled “Ad” or “Sponsored.” The search engine algorithm decides which ads are relevant to users’ searches and shows them accordingly.

Advertisers only pay if their ad gets clicked. So, if you want more visibility and traffic along with flexible budgets, you can’t go far wrong with Search ads (although we have seen our fair share of shoddy Search ads over our combined 66 years…).

Display Ads

Display ads are the next generation of PPC ads, but they’re just prettier.

They strategically placed banners or images on websites and mobile apps to grab your users’ attention and get them to click on the ad. They can be found on various websites and platforms, including social media, news websites and blogs.

The best part is that you can target very specific users based on their demographics, interests and browsing/buying behaviours. This lets you advertise to every one of your audience personas.

Personalised display ads make your brand or products relatable to your target audience, so they’re more likely to become paying customers.

Shopping Ads

PPC ads for shopaholics? Shopping ads, or product listing ads, are an online advertising method that lets businesses promote their products on search engine results pages.

They show up above or alongside organic search results and have a product image, title, price and store name. You’ve probably noticed the ‘Shopping’ tab on Google – that’s the one.

Businesses love these ads because they have high conversion rates, cutting out the need for users to spend hours browsing online and allowing them to buy products instantly. 

Remarketing Ads

Paid media has some seriously persistent ads.

They stalk your potential customers, determined not to let them escape. Remarketing ads are the culprits here. They target users who have already checked out your website or engaged with your brand.

These ads are all about pulling those interested customers back in, reminding them of what they were looking at, and convincing them to buy. It’s time to reel them back in and transform them into loyal customers.
