Paid Search Management

Paid Search Management is a search engine marketing method where the advertisers pay for every click the network brings to their sites. This method of online marketing has become hugely popular with the introduction of Google AdWords.

The early form of Paid Search Management started with banner ads and advertisements on specific industry sites. What makes AdWords so successful is that it’s a lot more targeted because your Ads will only appear if somebody searches for it.

Optimum7 specializes in Google AdWords Paid Search Management, as well as Microsoft Adcenter). There are 4 significant steps to Paid Search Management;

1. RESEARCH

We believe that each industry is different and each business might have different marketing strategies and goals. Therefore Research is the key step in planning successful Paid Search Marketing. Optimum7 focuses on the specific business and their industry, and runs extensive Keyword and Competition Analyses. This ensures that the Campaign is relevant to the Client’s needs including the all-important budget. Optimum7 researches on behalf of its clients because they rarely know what advertising terms or strategies are best to use in terms of their own objectives.

2. CAMPAIGN, AD GROUP & ADS CREATION

All the data collected from the research is evaluated and optimized by Optimum7 Consultants. It is then implemented into a newly created Paid Search Management Campaign. Targeted location (geography) is essential, as most businesses wish to focus on certain target areas for their advertisements. Optimum7 also specializes in creating multiple campaigns where one campaign targets a specific location while other campaigns simultaneously target a specific region, or even the entire US. We have solutions for businesses looking for a global reach as well. Optimum7 is expert in the guidelines and flexibilities of the Paid Search arena, and we can create sophisticated blends of tactical methods as part of an ongoing Paid Search strategy.

Optimum7 Copywriters create the Ad Text specific to each keyword and ad group. This step is essential as this Ad Text is what the users will see once they hit the paid search results. Optimum7 knows the fine line between advertising (just being there) and actually appealing to the consumer.

3. BID MANAGEMENT

Once all the specified keywords are implemented along with Ad Texts, Optimum7 formulates the strategy needed to manage bids for each keyword. Optimizing the bidding strategy is essential as there’s a thin line between spending too much money or too little. Optimum7 can calibrate your campaign to fit within this fine line, and bring the top targeted and relevant traffic to your site.

4. LANDING PAGES

Landing pages are another key factor in a successful Paid Search Campaign. They should include content, images or videos relevant to the search term and the ad text, and include a clear “call to action” as well, such as a form submission or a phone call. Optimum7 specializes in optimizing your landing page(s) for highest conversions, resulting in increased ROI.

5. ONGOING STATS

Ultimately, analyzing stats will determine the success quotient of a Paid Search Campaign. Analyzing key data, including CTR (Click through Rate), Average Time Spent on Site and Conversion Rates, enables our clients to see where their campaign is performing well and where improvements and adjustments are required. Optimum7 takes this task very seriously, and we monitor every client’s PPC account daily. This process enables us to maximize returns by eliminating any non-performing terms or ads, and by emphasizing ads that have established a winning track record
