Most of us have tried marketing our sites/products/services using pay-per-click in search engines, but this could be extremely costly if you don't manage the ads correctly. This is why pay-per-click management is so important.
PPC price is simply the price or fee you need to pay to benefit from pay per click advertising from a web marketing company. What does "Pay per Click" mean then? PPC advertising is a method of advertising wherein advertisers only pay each time their ad is clicked on, and eventually leads a visitor into their website. There are a good number of different types of PPC depending on the channel through which the marketing is done. There is banner advertising which involves showing of small to medium sized banners directly linked to the advertiser's page. Banners are made almost annoyingly eye-catching in hopes of getting enough attention to make the customers click on them.
PPC is regarded as one of the most effective online marketing strategies today. PPC search engine marketing is in fact a billion dollar industry today and will perhaps continue to be in the years to come. It has been proven through web research that the PPC price you invest is worth every dime. PPC can effectively attract new types of customers which are potentially interested in your products or services.
Now when we've defined what PPC means we continue to management. By managing our PPC keywords we track the results by keyword and calculate the profit by keyword. Any keyword that's not profitable will simply just be removed from our campaign. This is defined using this very simple calculation:
Number of clicks to get a sale for just that specific keyword * The price per click for that keyword / Profit per sale
If the above calculation returns a number greater than 1 your keyword isn't profitable and you should stop paying for it, or at least try to pay less. If it's on the other hand is less than 1 then you've found a keyword that's profitable and you should spend as much money as possible on it (not per click, but in total). The more you spend the more you will earn.
The calculations to manage your keywords should be done at least on a weekly basis, but in the beginning of a campaign you should make sure it's done daily to get you the results you want.
