Paid Search Marketing Challenges

Paid Search Marketing

Paid search marketing is one of the best performing digital channels because search marketing has intent behind every search, however, being one of the best channels means it also faces many challenges that include:

  • High competition
  • A rise in ad blockers
  • Industry regulation around privacy concerns
  • Post pandemic customer demands that are always evolving
  • Click fraud

With all these challenges you might be asking is yourself, is paid search right for my brand? Perhaps I should be spending my money in social advertising or other digital marketing channels such as SEO or display advertising.

We get these types of questions all the time.

At Advant Technology, we are not exclusively a PPC company, we believe that paid search is still a viable option for most businesses, but the truth is that normally a combination of different digital marketing platforms will result in the right blend to maximise your ROI and achieve your business goals.

Let’s take a quick look at each:

SEO:

SEO is a long-term digital strategy that takes time to see results, however, when done correctly, it can be one of the most effective digital marketing channels you can invest in. SEO focuses on improving your website’s organic search engine results rankings in Google and other global search engines. SEO includes, but is not limited to, content marketing, web design and on-page optimisation. SEO is incredibly complex because Google’s algorithm is changing all the time, however, if you are looking for a more stable marketing channel, then SEO could be the one for you.

Social Media Advertising:

A great way to reach new and existing customers is via paid social ads on the various social media platforms. Popular social platforms that return a strong ROI include the obvious choices such as Facebook and Instagram but you may find that you get a better ROI on TikTok, Pinterest or even Reddit, Snapchat or Twitter. It all depends on your product/service and demographic.

Unlike paid search and SEO, social allows you to prospect new audiences who are not actively searching for your product or service, instead you can reach audiences based on their interests.

Search Advertising:

A form of paid online advertising where businesses pay to have their ads displayed in the sponsored sections of search engines such as Google and Bing and because they are PPC ads, you will only ever pay per click! Search advertising is one of the most effective digital marketing channels because it allows businesses to target their ads at people who are already interested in, and are actively searching for, what they have to offer.

Display Advertising:

Display advertising is a form of online advertising, usually with image or video ads, where businesses pay to have their ads displayed on publisher websites. Display advertising is one the most effective digital marketing channels for increasing your brand visibility because it delivers your message where people are already spending their time, online!

Microsoft & Google Ads Management

Bing is not as popular as Google globally, however it still gets strong reach so it can be worth including depending on your budget. Running paid ads on Bing is a great way to reach new audiences. Advant Technology will manage your Google Ads and Microsoft Ads account as one, this means we’ll be able to monitor how much you’re spending across both channels and the results that each channel is delivering. This allows us to be fluid with our budgets and meet aggressive growth targets.

AdWords Remarketing & Retargeting

We use remarketing for those who have visited your website recently, as well as retargeting user who have interacted with your brand in other ways, on other channels. We usually use display advertising to remarket to past website visitors.

 

Keyword Research & Analysis

We use a proprietary user journey analysis approach to identify all the relevant keywords at all stages of the buyer journey funnel. This ensures that we capture as much of your business’ target market as possible.

Ad Copywriting

We write ad copy that is creative, compelling and speaks to the needs of your customers. Ad copy must be relevant to your target audience, keyword rich and action orientated. As a PPC agency, we ensure these requirements are met every time.

Ad Extensions & Dynamic Ads

We always optimize ad formatting to ensure you get the most out of your PPC ads, this includes testing different formats and layouts, multiple headline/description options, and using the Google/Microsoft ad tools to their full extent.

Competitor Analysis/Benchmarking

Our PPC services include identifying your competitors’ PPC campaigns (and non-PPC if relevant) and analysing what they’re doing well, or not so well. We can then use this information to improve your paid search campaigns going forward.

Recommended & Excluded Keywords

We will recommend which keywords you should be targeting and excluding in your PPC campaign in order to get a higher return on investment. We’ll suggest any additional keyword ideas that we feel will work well for the business based on our research or experience with similar businesses/industries. This is done at the beginning of each campaign and throughout the PPC management process.

Campaign Structure & Management

Our team will create a structured and manageable campaign, this will allow for efficient management and optimisation for the length of your PPC campaign. We’ll create several campaigns and normally many ad groups, each ad group will have many relevant keywords which we’ve identified as being most likely to drive conversions.

PPC Bid Management

We vary bid management depending on your business goals, for example, we may manage bids at a high level, such as by device type and time of day, or we may be more granular about managing by location or keyword quality score (as this can vary significantly).

What is Our Paid Search Process in a Nutshell?

What does data driven paid search mean?

Data-driven paid search is the process of making decisions about your campaigns based on data analysis. This includes reviewing your advertising campaign data to determine what’s working and what’s not, as well as adjusting your campaigns accordingly. In order to understand that we use data available in our reporting. Data driven attribution is the practice of using data to attribute value to different marketing channels for conversion purposes.

What is attribution modelling?

Attribution modelling uses historical analysis of your advertising spend and web traffic to allocate a percentage credit as conversions occur from one source (e.g Google Adwords) towards another (e.g Facebook Ads). This helps marketers understand the impact each channel has on generating revenue, allowing them to optimise their digital media budget allocation across all channels.

How Much Does Advant Technology Charge for Paid Search?

We have a number of pricing models depending the scope of work. Normally a percentage of spend + project management fees. Please get in touch with us to discuss your requirements. We look forward to hearing from you!
