Search ads can get your business to the top of Google for specific searches.
Search ads work well for most businesses, and allow you to show your ads for any keyword you choose. You can control the locations and times your ads show.
For example, a florist might advertise on keywords like “wedding flowers” between the hours of 8am and 4pm within 5 miles of their store location. People searching for wedding flowers will see their ads, visit their website and help drive more business.
You can start with search ads from as low as £5-£10 per day. Get in touch to talk about the best strategy for you.Learn more about search ads
Product ads can drive sales on your online store with targeted traffic.
Product ads are perfect for selling online. You can show images of products along with a title and price. Ads take users directly to the product page where they can then purchase through your website.
For example: a jeweler might want to sell her engraved bracelets on her website. Her product ads would show up if users search for “engraved silver bracelet”. Users can then click on her products to view and order them on her website.
Product ads drive millions of sales daily for online stores, so make sure you aren’t missing out by getting your product ads on Google Shopping and other search engines.Learn more about product ads
What Exactly is PPC? And How Can It Help You?
PPC is a form of online advertising where you only pay for the actions users actually take.
Unlike traditional printed ads or TV advertising, you can easily control your budget and measure performance. Plus, adjust your budget as needed. Google is the largest search engine in the world, and billions of searches are made for products and services like yours every day. So getting your business on Google can really help you increase your sales, brand awareness and growth. It can also increase footfall if you have a physical store.
Millions of businesses worldwide use Google (and other search engines) to advertise and reach millions of new customers every day. You don’t have to start with a huge budget, in some sectors a daily budget of as low as £5 per day can be enough to get started.
Frequently Asked Questions
Absolutely not! The amount you spend on you ads is always up to you I will recommend an amount that will help you generate the results you want but budgets are adjustable at any time. You can even pause your campaigns if you need to. You can start advertising your business from as little as £5 per day.
You will start seeing results from your ads right away, but it usually takes 3 – months months to get the BEST results and hot your specifics goals. It’s normal to pay more per lead/sale/call for the first few months and through hard work on your campaigns the cost reduces usually between 3 and 6 months.
It’s up to you! It’s recommended to allow at least 6 months to allow for your campaigns to perform at their best. But I offer rolling monthly services with total flexibility.
The short answer, yes! While there are a small number of businesses that paid advertising isn’t viable for (and if you’re one of them, I’ll tell you), most businesses can see great growth through campaigns that use the right strategy – built around their needs. Often businesses might try paid advertising themselves and see poor results – but this is usually down to the wrong set up, ineffective strategy or not running them for long enough to actually get results!
What your advertising costs will depend on the keywords you want to target, as well as other factors like location, and the budget you choose. I can a free proposal for you, that details the estimated costs based on your goals. The fees for my services as your marketing manager and consultant are separate, and also billed completely separately. So you always know exactly what you are spending on your ads, and what you are paying for my services.
A keyword is a word, or group of words that someone puts in to a search engine (like Google or Bing) to search for products, services or information. Someone looking for a reliable plumber might use the keyword “best local plumber”.
You will need a website or page to send users to from your ads. If you don’t have a website, or need a new one I can also help with this too.
As part of my service, I review every clients website before allowing them to spend money on paid advertising. An old or broken website won’t generate good results for you – so paying to send users to it would be a waste of money. If you need a new website, find out more here.
