Pay Per Click (PPC) campaigns are big business, and in today’s digital age companies are having to get digital marketing savvy in order to compete with their rivals. The world of marketing has evolved a great deal in the past decade, and with the majority of warm leads being generated online through Google searches businesses are now being forced to step up and join the digital generation in order to stay ahead in the competition.
PPC campaigns are very popular with new businesses who wish to kickstart their brand launch and raise their online profile, however they are rarely used to their full potential. Businesses do not pay for the advertisement until a visitor enters their website, and it is at this point that the visitor will be invited to leave their contact details by downloading or submitting a form to lock them in to future communications.
The primary aim of a PPC campaign is to capture prospective client data and follow it up to generate a sale or business relationship. The principle is simple, however the collection and analysis of the data is where many businesses go wrong, and if we could give you one top tip to improve the success of your PPC campaign it would be to employ a professional analytics company to process your data correctly. By doing so, you will have accrue a vast bank of warm leads that you can manipulate with target marketing, newsletters and so on.
Our second tip to give you the edge in your industry is to ensure that your tracking code is installed by professionals. Entering code in itself isn’t too complicated provided you follow the instructions carefully, however one wrong letter and your code is rendered useless and runs the risk of not capturing your valuable data. Furthermore, your website URL in your PPC campaign need to be tagged properly so that your visitors land on your chosen page and not on a 404 error page. Double check your entire tagged URL’s to avoid the costly mistake of paying for a click that did not direct your prospective customer to your website.
