Psychology of Language in PPC

Despite your intend­ed mes­sage, how you write copy com­plete­ly changes the effect of adver­tis­ing and mar­ket­ing con­tent. The psy­chol­o­gy of lan­guage in PPC con­tin­ues to be inves­ti­gat­ed and dis­cov­ered, gen­er­at­ing take­aways that brands can use to greet their cus­tomers in the desired man­ner and hope­ful­ly, acquire a new brand con­sumer or loy­al­ist.

How does a PPC company string words together in a way that becomes irresistible to viewers?

It’s sim­ple, the adver­tis­er gets to know the client base before address­ing them.

Speak­ing to con­sumers in a win­ning way is much like work­ing a room at a par­ty. You know which guests want to hear about sports, which about pol­i­tics, which need anoth­er drink, who to leave alone and if you’re real­ly look­ing for a reac­tion, you prob­a­bly know exact­ly what to say to stir a lit­tle dra­ma into the evening.  

How to write PPC ads that consumers cannot resist:

  • Everything is about the consumer.

Although your prod­ucts are amaz­ing, it doesn’t mat­ter unless you can show why your con­sumer needs them. Inves­ti­gate emo­tion­al needs and trig­gers of your con­sumers, and posi­tion prod­ucts and ser­vices accord­ing­ly. Every PPC ad can explain why your consumer’s life will ben­e­fit from pur­chas­ing your prod­uct, and every ad can grab his or atten­tion if you research suf­fi­cient­ly to include a tagline that guar­an­tees an emo­tion­al response.

  • Use repetitive messaging.

Don’t say the same thing twice, but share the same mes­sag­ing in your PPC ads across all plat­forms. The more a con­sumer is exposed to a mes­sage, the more they believe and under­stand what they read or see.  

  • Create a sense of urgency.

If a prod­uct is lim­it­ed or an offer is time-sen­si­tive, con­sumers are more like­ly to react to the impulse to pur­chase. Use cre­ative lan­guage that lets the con­sumer know that time and quan­ti­ty are of the essence. To rev up the urgency, you might include a real-time count­down timer that lets the con­sumer know exact­ly how much time is or how many pieces are left for pur­chase.

  • Position keywords intelligently.

Bold­fac­ing key­words that your con­sumers search for and want to learn more about is a great way to keep their eyes con­nect­ed to your con­tent and mov­ing through­out a page. It’s best to include these key­words at the begin­ning and the end of the con­tent because that’s where con­sumers spend the most time and the parts of con­tent they remem­ber best. Con­sid­er where your key­words are in rela­tion to pho­to, video and graph­ics — can the con­sumer eas­i­ly con­nect the key­word phrase with con­tent that is dis­played near­by?

  • Show what’s going on socially.

Inte­grate social num­bers such as Face­book shares onto your PPC ads. This shows con­sumers that their peers are inter­est­ed in and in need of your prod­ucts and ser­vices as well. If pos­si­ble, includ­ing live feeds and gen­uine reviews that speak to con­sumers as they browse your ad. The more social­ly accept­ed you are, the bet­ter.

  • Be creative.

This is becom­ing the gold­en PPC tick­et, and it might come with tri­al and error. Ads are many and every­where and in order to cut through the noise, your ad must stand out. This doesn’t mean being the loud­est or bright­est but instead, con­struct a mes­sage that is tru­ly irre­sistible to your tar­get audi­ence.
