There are many options when it comes to “PPC” promotion. Just to name some common platforms, Google AdWords and Facebook are two very popular ways to get PPC traffic. Both work very well when it comes to getting paid traffic. As for the best one I’ll let you decide.
Both Google AdWords and Facebook ads are very powerful, because you can test and view your results and see what is working and what you need to cut from your campaign. You can build a target audience with factors such as age, gender, geographical region, interests, and view your conversion rates. You can set up a daily budget or set up a campaign budget, change that budget on the fly, and cancel it at any time should your campaign be a stick in the mud. Therefore, let’s get into some of the reasons.
1. Results Tracking
“PPC” results can be seen within a few hours of your ad being up and running. You can filter between mobile and desktop, browsers, geographical areas and see how many people have clicked on your ad and how much it has cost. You have the option to pause your campaigns at any time and restart them when you need more traffic and/or your budget allows. This really is a great way to get more traffic when you need it. And traditionally works faster than organic traffic.
2. Targeted Audience
Laser targeting your audience is very easy and has enormous potential to get the right people at the right time to your website. Never in history has it been so easy to target the exact people who you are trying to reach with your website. Set your keywords and let Google and Facebook point the right people to your ad.
3. Target by Demographics
Before the internet, it was almost impossible to target by demographics without having to place advertisements in magazines and newspapers which were published in the country you were trying to reach. Now you can select any country in the world to target your ads to.
4. Target by Interests
With the added option of targeting your audience by their interests it makes “PPC” even more business savy. For instance if someone has shown an interest in dog grooming then they may see your advertisement if that is what you are promoting. This will really narrow down your results and get the exact audience that you are looking for.
5. Easy to Track Results with Tracking Pixels
Tracking pixels can be used to see how many users have gone through to your Thank You page. This will give you real-time results and let you see how many conversions you have achieved in your campaign. You can of course place your tracking pixels on any page on your website for instance a sales page for a certain product you are promoting. You can put your tracking pixels on a thank-you page for your opt-in email list.
There are many ways to drive traffic to your website, blog, promotion, email subscription landing pages, and sales, but pay-per-click advertising with Google or Facebook is one of the fastest ways to really make an impact. Google something or scroll your Facebook feed and you will see right away how many people and businesses use this pay-per-click advertising.
