What to Look for in a PPC Company

Los Angeles PPC companyBefore you hire a PPC company or consultant, you should be comfortable and have a general sense of what you want from paid search. Choosing any type of online marketing for your company means that you are making an investment, so do you research ahead of time. Here are a few factors that you’ll want to look into before choosing someone to handle your pay per click campaigns:

ExperienceHow long have you been handling paid search campaigns? What type of customers or industries are you familiar with? Are you an Adwords qualified company? These are all important questions to think about. Every industry is different and for many small businesses, the sectors can be competitive. When it comes down to keeping on budget for a price per click on a daily basis, experience counts.

Costs and Budget – Someone who is inexperienced in handling different types of paid search budgets can easily make a mistake. These oversights can add up really quickly and get expensive real fast. That’s why it’s helpful to have a company who is dedicated to monitoring your PPC account throughout the day and ensure that you won’t go over budget. You might have a set amount that you’re willing to go over budget if you’re getting good, relevant clicks/calls. These are all crucial things to discuss with your PPC manager.

Keyword Research – Choosing the right keywords is SO important in PPC campaigns. You can’t just throw around broad and general terms that you might incorporate into your organic campaign. If your keywords aren’t relevant and your ads get a lot of impressions but few clicks, this can decrease your overall quality score. Make sure to ask your PPC manager about optimization and testing for different pay per click landing pages to see which ones works best.

Communication – Don’t be afraid to ask your PPC company about their track record and what can they do to improve your campaigns. Find out if they attend any events or webinars to keep up with the changing industry. Most of all, make sure that they are ready and willing to answer any questions and comments that you have regarding your account. Search budgets can change with a moment’s notice and it’s important to have a company who is on your side.

One thought on “What to Look for in a PPC Company”

  1. This was a great article on PPC guys. But I’d love to read something that relates to organic search marketing in comparison. I find that there is relavance in having this option for clients since it is based on the power of influence and well written content to not only attract their target marketing but to engage and better connect/convert them as well.

    In what instance does PPC over SEM and organic results is the preferred option. I have a great article about his on my blog but I am always open to learn (and partner with) about PPC for sure. I find that I never click on PPC ads and it is also way more expensive option whether the prospect converts or not to the company paying for the service.

    thanks
