I got a call from one of my clients today asking about what is the best way to generate traffic in the quickest amount of time possible. I told him pay per click (PPC) advertising is the quickest way to start getting calls for your business. The benefits of PPC advertising are great. Other than spending money up front you can quickly have traffic coming to your website in no time.
Pay Per Click (PPC) marketing is a form of paid advertising provided by all the major search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing. It works on a pay per click basis. Different industries with more competition the clicks will cost you more.
Another advantage of pay per click marketing is your ads appears at the top of the search results on a desktop and a mobile device. More and more people search online using a mobile device so this is a fantastic way to advertise your business.
For pay per click marketing you don’t have to rely on the search engines to start generating traffic. Not like SEO where it can take time to see the results. Pay per click marketing happens fairly quickly. Once you have your ads set up and your website/landing page you could be seen traffic in a few hours.
The disadvantage is its cost you money. Every time someone clicks on your ad it costs money. Depending on the competition, industry type, how many people are advertising all these factors increase the costs.
When you think about how much money it costs for SEO and how long it takes to see results using pay per click marketing is a great alternative if you need to start getting traffic and more business right away.
