What is PPC?

PPC stands for pay-per-click, a type of mar­ket­ing you’ve prob­a­bly heard of by now. PPC ads are those box ads that run along­side your search engine results. PPC ads are typ­i­cal­ly part of a larg­er over­all cam­paign that aims to get con­sumers to a web­site land­ing page and opt for an event or make a pur­chase.

How does PPC work?

PPC works by tar­get­ing the key­words that your niche con­sumers respond to and match­ing them with your mar­ket­ing cam­paign to ensure the great­est con­sumer click turnout.

Adver­tis­ers bid on ad space that is proven to gen­er­ate engage­ment from their niche audi­ence. If the bid is won, adver­tis­ers pay the bid amount each time a con­sumer clicks through to the desired land­ing page.

PPC is effec­tive because it is built on research. Key­word research shows which search query words con­sumers are most like­ly to use and allows your PPC ad to run along­side those respec­tive search results.
