We respect our competitors immensely, and we are always sad to find out that things haven’t worked out for them.

You’re probably wondering how to get your PPC account back. Here are some top tips from us on what to do in this situation.

Call the company

Phone the agency involved to see if you can speak to your account manager (if your agency assigns you one; some don’t, we do). Try and garner as much information as you can. Some companies literally close their doors overnight and it can be hard to reach anyone.

PPC vs. SEO: The Pros and Cons of Each

The PPC vs. SEO battle continues.  Which is better? Which is more cost effective?  How about easier?  Which has better results in timing?  Each person has their own opinion on which works better overall, and why.  Perhaps each business type has different needs, so the results of which is better depends on which need that style of website marketing works better. Let’s review some of today’s current facts on each part of this, and you can decide for yourself.
Some believe that using pay per click, or PPC, is wasteful on your budget when search engine marketing, or SEO, can be done for free!  However, pay per click tends to have much higher click through and conversion rates.  They say that even though this is true, only 12% of traffic comes from pay per click, while 88% comes from search engine optimization.  Both can be customized, but pay per click is easier to customize.  It is also easier to set up pay per click.  Consider then also, that pay per click is also easy for your competition to set up too.  So both have their advantages and that’s a no-brainer.  SEO is offering more traffic, and has less limitation.  However, it’s a little tougher to use.
PPC is quick and it can be updated instantly.  Using pay per click, the keywords can be switched over the instant that they are discovered to be ineffective.  With SEO keywords, this is definitely not the case.  It involves time and effort, and editing to get that job done. It’s not so easy to do.  Then on top of that, the spiders and bots of the World Wide Web have to come back around and re-categorize each page.  Pay per click does well on SERPs, because it will stay in its place.  As with all search engines, real-time results get the prime spots.
Both SEO and PPC have some issues which prevent them from being the top choice for all people and businesses.  Pay per click limits you based on your budget, but it’s fast, easy, and simple to change up at a moment’s notice, while SEO is essentially free or very low cost, you can’t change it up on the dime.  Using the two together is usually by far the most popular approach. This is good to get your site natural good rankings, and if you need to keep traffic coming, using pay per click is a good way to do that while making other changes.

PPC Management Services – Quick, Effective and Efficient

With the global economy placed precariously advertisers are increasingly looking for cheaper, effective and profitable advertising mediums. The growth of Internet has become the reason for the emergence of some of the most innovative methods of advertising and business promotion. This has also altered the path of advertising inclination from offline advertising to online. PPC ensures that the exact requirements of the advertiser are met to the fullest.
In PPC advertisers pay a definite amount to the search engine (the advertising medium: eg. Google). When someone clicks on these advertisements, he/she gets redirected to advertiser’s site. This increases the rate of traffic influx on the site which is directly linked to increased conversion rate. Almost every search engine has offered the pay per click management plan.
PPC Management Services includes two categories:
1. Click Based PPC – In this pay per click marketing system the amount of the click rate is fixed. Therefore every click receives a definite amount.
2. Bid Based PPC – this method of pay per click advertising includes bidding a certain amount on the required keyword in competition with other advertisers looking for the same keyword. The bid ensure visibility on the search engine.
This mode of online advertising is considered to be one of the most aggressive and is undertaken by online advertising professionals.

PPC Services ushers in increased traffic and sales for a website along with effective brand management. Pay-per-click search engines truly drive loads of traffic to your website and use of them is cost-effective because you don’t actually pay for advertisements. Rather, you bid on keywords and keyword phrases that are relevant to the information, products or services provided by your website.
PPC is a cost effective means of reaching global customers, much cheaper than traditional media, which is usually limited to the immediate audience within its reach (be it TV, radio or print). Only web marketing can give you global reach at such a cost effective rate.
In order to maximize the limited space, PPC advertisement must have catchy lines on it to compel users to click on it. That is why determining what advertising approach works in the market can be very useful while creating ads too. Keyword analysis and selection are given importance in PPC campaign management.
PPC Management is all about saving time, effort and money and is the most effective and quickest way of driving traffic to a website.
