|Paid Search Management|
Paid Search Management is a step outside the realm of being noticed for who you are, and placing yourself in front of potential visitors and purchasers based on a budget. You can effectively drive traffic to your site by two different means with paid search management: Pay-Per-Click (like Google Adwords) and Paid Inclusion.
Both of these examples can be seen in search engine results pages on Yahoo for instance. Top placement on SERPs is reserved for those who have budgeted to purchase that placement. This is not because the search engine ranks them higher or a more accurate site for the search submitted, rather they are the highest bidder for the search terms entered by the visitor – this is Paid Inclusion. Pay-Per-Click is more akin to the Google Adwords and sites you see when displaying Google Adsense ads. Whether the listing display based on a search term, or contextual content from the page and meta data, these sites pay a premium each time their ad is clicked.
Both methods put your web site and/or targeted product right in the face of potential customers and site visitors. The up side to this kind of marketing is that you always generate traffic. The downside to this marketing is that you can be upstaged easily by a competitor with deeper pockets.
We recommend this marketing aspect for those businesses with a specified audience and demographic that can be easily targeted based on search terms or the kind of sites future clients are visiting. This kind of marketing also goes very closely hand-in-hand with copywriting and content management. Once you obtain the traffic flow you are seeking, you must be certain that you are capturing their attention and retaining them on your site. If your content is lacking and they quickly abandon your pages without purchasing or flagging your site as a favorite, chances are they wont be coming back – and your investment is gone for that potential customer.
