Pay per click or PPC is simply a model of digital advertising, where advertisers pay for every time their ad is clicked.
It was a shift in advertising model which was previously based on impressions or number of times the ad was displayed. Today, digital advertising continues to evolve and other models include paying for conversion (which could be sign-up, purchase or any other desired actions).
PPC advertising channels today include Google Ads, Facebook, LinkedIn and other major search or social media platforms, and also content network advertising platforms such as Outbrain, Revcontent and others.
In short, PPC agencies help to run paid advertising campaigns on such platforms to help clients reach their target audience.
While it may be simple to get started with paid advertising on Google, Facebook and other major platforms, a PPC agency can help you optimise your audience targeting, bid strategy, ad frequency and timing, run dates, creatives, call-to-actions (CTAs) and much more!
It’s not only the running of a campaign that requires a great deal of marketing expertise and best practices, but a good PPC agency also helps you with the pre-campaign planning and strategy process, and post-campaign analytics and follow-ups to ensure you maximise your advertising budget.
Furthermore, as businesses are forced to go digital in the wake of the pandemic, the digital space is increasingly overcrowded and standing out is not merely a matter of your budget but requires strategy, digital marketing expertise, data and best practices.
We highly recommend going to the experts if you have a decent budget and are unfamiliar with PPC marketing. It is better to spend more and get a higher return on your investment (ROI) than to save on agency fees and end up with little or even nothing to show for your results.
