People are 4 times likely to click on a paid search ad on google than on other search engines. Business typically make an average of $2 revenue for every dollar spent on google paid search ads.
Unlike SEO, your business can see immediate results with paid search ad campaigns. Your paid search ads target buyers with high intent. When people have a need or a want, they use keywords to search for information about products available in the market.
Your prospective buyer starts considering your products, when your offerings are aligned to their needs and wants. Your buyer starts evaluating your offerings alongside other offerings, prior to making a decision.
Pay only when someone clicks on your ad
Search engines operate using a bidding approach, where they bid for keywords. The price for keywords are dictated by the market. You only pay when someone clicks on your search ad.
Paid search enables experimentation
Paid search enables you to experiment with headlines, keywords and ad copy. You can use paid search analytics to determine how successful your campaigns are. You can use this information to improve the effectiveness of your digital marketing campaigns.
You can track how many times your ads appeared to your prospective buyers (impressions) or how many times people clicked on your ad (Number of clicks) or what is the cost of each click (cost per click) or how many people are taking an action that you want them to take on your website or landing page (conversions).
Paid search enables tracking of ad spend
Paid search enables you (advertisers) to track how much you are spending on your campaign, keywords and ad. This enables you (advertisers) to make necessary amends based on campaign performance.
If you have a time sensitive offer (e.g. a sale) for your buyers, you can use google ads to create paid search campaigns. Your ads will start appearing immediately in google search results. Your can turn off a paid search campaign, once that time sensitive offer expires.
This enables you to get your products in front of your buyers while at the same time track you ad spend.
