The Problem With Traditional PPC Ad Practices

Traditionally, small business go through this process, and I see it with clients all the time. They hire a web designer and then realize the website isn’t ranking. So they then find an SEO specialist, but that takes a lot of time. Finally, they find someone who can do the paid ads to get the faster traffic and sales, but it’s extremely expensive! This is why “direct response PPC advertising”, is your solution. But first more problems business owners face with standard agencies.

Target Audience Gets Confused

Agencies are great at creating ads on search engines, social media, and other paid mediums. But, when you only push your traffic to a homepage, the audience has to search for the service or product that will solve their problems. So they bounce off the website and keep searching.

There's More Than Just One Audience

A business doesn’t have a target audience. It has “multiple segments of a target audience”. If you write your content and create graphics for just “small business owners”, it can still fall short. This is where direct response pay-per-click strategies start solving problems.

In A Nutshell, Agencies Charge Way Too Much For Ads Pushed To A Broad Audience, Before Making Sure It's Going To Give You Money

PPC Advertising In Richmond, VA

More Problems Solved Through Direct Response Digital PPC Strategies

Charging Too Much, Too Early

Many agencies collect $1,000 dollars PLUS, your ad budget, and that’s just to start. We decided to take a different route to your success. We charge more affordable fees and small testing budgets. Then when we have something that’s a winner. We ratchet it up for success!

Not Analyzing The Big Picture

When you want a successful ad campaign, you can’t just test the who, what, and where. You need to create special landing pages, analyze EVERY clickable option, segment the audience down, and split test EVERYTHING. Oh, and there has to be an incredible offer for people to respond to.

Million Dollar Lead Generators

What does this phrase mean? I have it posted all over the website, but why am I saying it? The “million dollar lead generator”, is an offer so amazing that your target audience has to click, subscribe, or buy. It makes “click here” look like the worst call to action on the planet. You capture, retarget, and advertise again.

There Isn't Any Follow Up Funnel

When you get traffic through pay-per-click ads, there are tons of visitors. Let’s say your ad reaches 4,000 people and 3 – 5% visit your page, but don’t call, subscribe, or buy. Well, you want to keep their information and follow them around the internet so you’re what they think of when it’s time to purchase.

Let us do thepay-per-click ads so you have more time to manage the business.

More traffic means more money.

Google PPC Is Google Adwords. But, We Do PPC Campaigns On Multiple Platforms.

Here's Some Of The Places You Can Have A PPC Ad Campaign Run

A phone with the Google homepage on the screen. Google is the most popular place to run ppc ads.

Google Display Ads, Video Ads, Local Search Ads, And More...

Google is the most popular place to run pay-per-click ad campaigns. Google’s chief economists claim that if you run an ad correctly, and to the right target audience, each $1 you spend should bring back $2. They work on a bidding format, meaning businesses bid to have their ad seen when someone types in a specific keyword/s. Within Google ads, you can run 7 different types: Search, Shopping, Display, Video, App, Smart, Local, and Call Only. The only negative side of Google Ads is how competitive it is. Small businesses trying to target very competitive keywords can get very expensive and show little return. That’s why many businesses choose social media ads.

Facebook/Meta Pay-Per-Click Advertising

Facebook has gotten a bad rap lately, but it’s still the biggest and most popular social media ad platform in the world. Targeting has become more limited but you can still narrow down your target audience well. What’s best about Facebook ads is the tracking and informative data collection. By installing the Facebook Pixel on your website, you can track who is visiting your website, then retarget them with follow-up ads, see what buttons they are clicking on, forms they are using, etc. You can even filter ads to block the audiences you don’t want! They provide performance estimates and split testing built-in to the platform (direct response marketing is huge on split testing). 

Twitter, YouTube, And Instagram

There are 1 billion people who use Instagram each month, 81% of people use it to research products and services, and 130 million people shop on Instagram. This are staggering numbers, and what’s great about Instagram is that you can run your ads concurrently with Facebook. If you love video, than YouTube is for you. You can decide on your target audience and literally choose the channels you want to put ads on! Finally, you might not think of Twitter anymore (or do you? LOL). Research shows that if someone follows a company on Twitter they are 67% more likely to  buy from them. Believe it or not, 33% of teenagers in the USA are using twitter, and the biggest audience on Twitter is young women.

Two people working on Microsoft Surfaces. Sometimes, your Richmond, VA, business will benefit from Bing pay-per-click advertising.

Bing Ads/Microsoft Ads

Only 8% of internet searches occur on Bing, which might make you think it isn’t worth it. There’s no doubt it’s tiny in comparison to Google but it’s still being widely used, why? Many companies make tons of money with Microsoft Ads because they can reach millions of searchers who don’t use Google. Microsoft ads have a 50% higher click-through rate than Google Ads, a 33% lower cost per click, and the average cost to acquire a customer is 30% less. To sum all of this up, you can reach millions of people at HALF THE COST OF GOOGLE ADS. If you leverage the ad platform properly, it actually becomes very big. 600 million people use Microsoft Edge as their browser, Surface and Xbox users see Microsoft Ads, and millions still have Hotmail accounts.

Someone shopping on Amazon. Amazon PPC ads are great for selling physical products.

Amazon Sponsored Products PPC

Amazon PPC ads are great for many sellers and vendors who sell physical products. Beyond Google, Amazon is the most popular place for online shopping. Over 310 million people use Amazon to buy items at lower prices, price match retailers, and stock up on toiletries for their homes. Amazon also has two different types of ads. The first is Amazon-sponsored product ads. These are pay-per-click, targeted ads that boost the reach of the merchandise you’re already selling on Amazon. It works a lot like Google Ads where you bid on keywords people are searching for. The other type of ad is Amazon Product Ads. These are “linked” ads that take the buyer from Amazon to an external website, online store, or landing page you created.

Business To Business LinkedIn PPC Ads

Why didn’t we group this with rest of the social media platforms? Because LinkedIn is unique thanks to its business to business model. If your business is service based and provides products/services for other businesses, you can reach 450 million users on the platform. 7 out of 10 professionals claim they see ads and other LinkedIn information as trustworthy. Trust is huge and makes this platform a great alternative since many people are trusting Google and Facebook less and less. 57% of LinkedIn users are companies and half of all B2B buyers state they use LinkedIn when making purchasing decisions. It’s definitely the place for businesses to create ads for other businesses.

Why We Help Business Owners With PPC Ads

At M.J. Web Design we know you’re the kind of person who wants to be successful. You want your Google/ppc ads to provide you time to run the business. Oh, and provide steady income!

In order to be that way, you need a researched and structured Ad campaign so your startup or small business grows and continues to increase profits.

We believe it’s terrible new (or existing) small business owners should ever feel that way because everyone deserves success. 

We understand how those feelings hurt. We were starting once and had to do the exact same thing! But we researched our markets, put in the hours, and are now successful.

Here’s how it works: just give us a call, get a FREE meeting, we’ll design a rough draft, then put it in action. That way you can stop feeling frustrated or confused about the growth and direction of your business.

Start feeling relaxed, free, and proud of your business growth:)
