If you don't utilize PPC search engine advertising in your Internet marketing yet, than you should definately consider it. PPC stands for "pay per click" and is a main method used by thousands of websites to generate themselves high quality website traffic. A key advantage of pay per click marketing is that you only need to pay for actual website visitors and are not required to pay for those individuals whom only look at your ad.
Here's why it's so powerful. With most traditional forms of advertising, you are charged a set fee for exposures to your ad. The people that view your advertisement may never even act on your ad. As a result, you may not make any money from your ad campaign.
However, you still have to pay that fee, regardless of whether anyone responds to your ad or not. With pay per click marketing however, you increase the changes of generating a profitable campaign because you are only paying for people that actually respond to your ad by clicking on it. This is why you have great opportunity for drastically increased sales since your traffic will be very high quality and targeted. The most effective form of pay per click marketing is through pay per click search engine marketing.
Whenever a user visits a web site search engine and types in a phrase, different web sites appear in the results. Along with the search results, several "sponsored results" will appear as well, usually on the right side of the screen. These sponsored results are examples of pay per click advertising. If the user clicks on one of the ads, the advertiser is charged a set fee. That fee varies based on what advertisers are willing to pay per click for a given key word or phrase. Some keywords cost very little to receive traffic (10 cents a click or less).
Other keywords can cost an arm and a leg so to speak. There are keywords that go for as high as $25 a click. The price you pay for keywords is completely dependent upon what other advertisers are willing to pay for a keyword at a given point of time. Therefore, when considering any pay per click program, you want to consider what the average cost per click are for the top placements for your keywords and phrases. In addition to search engine pay per click, there are also pay per click banners and pay per click web page placements. Similar to PPC search engine marketing, advertisers are only required to pay for prospects who actually click on their ad.
However, these type of pay per click responses are not as targeted as using pay per click programs in the search engines. A prospect is in a different state of mind when he or she types in a search word or phrase and clicks on an ad, versus visiting a web site and clicking on an ad or banner. All can work as long as you can make more money than you spend on the ad. Just understand that all pay per click marketing is not the same.
