Pay-per-click advertising or PPC is a marketing model that allows businesses to place ads on a variety of platforms and pay for placement and interactions (customer clicks).
Businesses primarily use these methods to drive targeted marketing and increase advertising efficiency. This makes sense considering on average, for every dollar spent on Google Adwords, businesses have been reported to generate two dollars of revenue.
How it Works
The mechanics of PPC marketing are fairly straightforward, centering around ad auctions.
A maximum value is set for how much one is willing to pay per click. This bid is entered into an auction alongside other organizations looking to run campaigns with the same keywords.
An organization will choose their platform and the type of ads they are looking to run. They then design their ads and select the keywords they are looking to utilize for their campaign.
It is wise when starting a campaign to devise a strategy before simply jumping in hoping to have the winning bid.
Why Utilize Pay-Per-Click Advertising
How exactly does PPC advertising work for a business though? You understand how it functions but what about how it is going to benefit you in a real way.

All PPC platforms allow you to track each aspect of the marketing process. That means that you can track conversion rates, sales, new leads, and any other defined values you need to.
You can get very specific, allowing you to look at the performance of specific ad types and specific keywords. Having this knowledge can even further maximize your marketing strategy output.
