Paid Search Advertising is among

the most effective forms

of “inbound marketing”.

Paid Search advertising, or Pay-Per-Click advertising (PPC) works because it immediately makes your business visible when your prospective customer is searching for your brand/ product/ service.

It is also colloquially referred to as PPC ads, or  Google Adwords. These are text ads that show up on Google, or other search engines, in response to a user’s query or search term. Since you get charged only when a user clicks on your ad, hence the name “pay-per-click” or “PPC” advertising.

Along with SEO, this form of advertising benefits from the highest customer intent and is therefore most effective in getting the right audience to your website and having the shortest funnel to converting a prospect into a lead.

Isn’t every PPC advertising agency the same?

Absolutely not. Just like every car is a car, but not the same car, so every PPC advertising campaign is not the same as any other PPC campaign, and every PPC agency is not the same. On the contrary, every car that is fueled and working, can be expected to take you to your destination, but that’s not the case with every PPC campaign. A well-executed PPC advertising campaign will deliver you the ROI on your ad spend, while a poor or mediocre campaign is likely to lead you to lose money.

We sometimes hear from prospective clients that they have tried PPC advertising (either by themselves or via another PPC advertising agency), and it hasn’t yielded results. And it’s almost always only because the campaigns were not well managed.

And that’s where we make a difference with our PPC advertising.

Our top 3 quotes on PPC advertising:

“Take a risk and keep testing, because what works today won’t work tomorrow, but what worked yesterday may work again.”

Amrita Sahasrabudhe

“Mediocre marketers think in terms of campaigns. Great marketers think in terms of growth frameworks.”

Neil Patel

“Design like you are absolutely right, then optimize like you were wrong from the start.”

Jordie van Rijn

What makes an effective PPC campaign?
  • Accurate keyword research – including, very importantly, detailed negative keyword research to minimize wasted clicks.
  • High quality, high impact ad copy – with minimum of 3 ads per ad group – to enable A/B testing.
  • Structure of the campaign, ad groups and keywords per ad group – it could affect how often ads are shown, how the budget gets allocated across ad groups, and more.
  • Choice of bid strategy – do automated bid strategies always work better, or should you opt for manual bidding? If choosing an automated bid strategy, how do you decide which to choose? These decisions directly impact your cost-per-click and cost-per-lead.
  • Landing page design and impact – almost always overlooked, the importance of the landing page can’t be over-emphasized.
  • Conversion tracking – if you don’t know what’s happening, how can you optimize? It’s not just forms, but phone calls, WhatsApp inquiries, emails – all need to be tracked. You’ve got to tie it in to results.
  • Analytics – Besides conversion tracking, it’s critical that the PPC campaigns are linked to Google Analytics and the additional insights and audience creation possibilities offered by Google Analytics are used to understand and augment campaign performance and actions needed. Most PPC companies do not pay attention to this.
  • Ongoing optimization and review – Again, this is something most often not undertaken by PPC agencies the way it should be. It can’t be a make-once-leave-forever approach. You’ve got to constantly keep evaluating even those things that are working to try alternate, new strategies to see if something else might work better. You need to see the results in a holistic manner, tie them up to your growth framework, analyze the data from various angles and using various metrics beyond the most common metrics of CTR & CPC. The cycle of – plan, implement, evaluate, amend, plan, implement, ….. – needs to continue in perpetuity.

Our PPC management fees have 3 components:

  1. Monthly Ad Budget – which goes directly to Google – based on number of clicks received and the cost per click. We strongly encourage that you use your corporate credit card for these costs, in which case you will have the direct billing with Google, and these would not be payable to us.
  2. Monthly Management Fee – our monthly fee for the ongoing optimization and management of your campaigns
  3. One-Time Set Up Fee – Besides the above two charges which are ongoing, we also charge a one-time set up fee, which covers our extensive efforts in setting up the campaign, including keyword research, competitor ads review, ad copy creation, review of landing pages, and implementation of conversion tracking codes.

Our fees are quoted based on a complete assessment of work involved which depends on the number of products/ product groups/ services to be promoted, languages, geography, and other relevant factors. The recommended ad budget is estimated based on potential volume of clicks and the expected cost per click, or limited to the ad budget you choose to start with.

The minimum ad budget required is AED 5,000 per month. Our fees will be additional to the ad budget.

Besides paid search advertising, we provide the full range of digital marketing services.
