What is Search Engine Marketing?
Also known as Google Ads or ‘Pay-per-click’, Search Engine Marketing is online advertising that is displayed when a searcher (ideally your prospective customer) types keywords, phrases or even has an online audience or behavior type that is related to or matches your text or display advertisement.
Remarketing Ads, AKA “stalking ads”, follow online users who have already clicked on your ads or have visited your website. They work by dropping a ‘cookie’ on their browser and appearing when the users visit other, non-related sites (including social media sites).
This allows the advertiser to stay in the forefront of the customer’s mind by by being seen so when they are ready, the user or prospect thinks of the advertisers product or service first, over the competitor!
Of course there is that pesky business of how much to bid/spend, but we are experts in helping our clients find the best bid rates to be marketable. Depending on a variety of algorithms (which changes regularly), the amount you pay for a given click gives you the opportunity to competitive advantage by positioning your website above the competition. PPC campaigns can run at the same time as Re-targeting campaigns and are easily tracked for effectiveness.
