      Ingredients for Success:
      -Use local targeting if applicable
      -Bid on your company and brand names
      -Create landing pages where appropriate
    • 9. Benefits of PPC
    • 10. Measurable
      Paid search is measurable from start to finish. Advertisers can track what keywords are being searched, clicks and if a buyer purchased a product from the click.
      Impressions: Each time the ad is viewed.
      Cost-Per-Click: The cost for each click generated.
      CPA: The cost per action – how much does it cost to get someone to take an action
    • 11. Traffic
      A well executed PPC campaign sends targeted traffic to your site.
      Plus, sites that rank both high in Paid and Organic results receive more clicks.
    • 12. Brand Recognition
      Increased impressions with paid search results. If they see your ad even if they don’t click, they have increased awareness of your company.
      However, a word of caution: Having ads with high impressions and a low CTR will result in a decreased Google Quality Score.
    • 13. 24/7 Advertising
      Paid search ads start running immediately and continue to run 24/7. Potential buyers or customers will always be able to find you.
    • 14. Precision
      PPC advertising has advanced controls:
      Dayparting: You can choose to have your ads run only at certain times during the day.
      Geolocation: You can target your ads to run in certain locations only.
    • 15. Calculating Your CPA
    • 16. Show Me The Money
      So how much can you afford to spend?
      Let’s figure out your Cost Per Action (CPA.) This is where an advertiser pays for each specified action (a purchase, a form submission, and so on) linked to the advertisement.
    • 17. Conversion Tracking
      How it Works:Conversion tracking places code onto your site. Once the code is applied, conversion tracking places a cookie on a user's computer when he or she clicks on one of your ads. Then, if the user reaches one of your conversion pages, the cookie connects to your web page and conversion tracking records a successful conversion for you.
    • 18. Calculating Your Target CPA
      Determine Your Conversion Rate
      Calculate Your Gross Profit
      Calculate Your Target CPA
      Calculate Your Net Profit
      Determine Maximum CPC
    • 19. Figure Out Your Conversion Rate
      Conversions / Site Visits = Conversion Rate
      If a site received 4,000 site visits in a month, and generated 80 conversions, the conversion rate would be 2%.
      80 / 4,000 = .02
    • 20. Calculate Your Gross Profit
      Sales Price – Cost of Product = Gross Profit of Product
      So if your sales price is $125 and your cost to build the product is $65 then your gross profit is $60.
      $125 - $65 = $60
    • 21. Calculate Your Target CPA
      Sales Price * Sales & Marketing Cost % = Target CPA
      So if you’re sales price is $125 and your sales and marketing margin percentage is 15%, your target CPA, including promotional costs, is $18.75.
      $125 * .15 = $18.75
    • 22. Calculate Your Net Profit
      Gross Profit – Target CPA = Net Profit
      So if your gross profit is $60 and you subtract your target CPA of $18.75 then your net profit is $41.25.
      $60 - $18.75 = $41.25
    • 23. Determine Maximum CPC
      100/(100 * Conversion Rate %) = Required clicks to generate a conversion
      So if the conversion rate is 2%, then you’ll need 50 clicks to get a conversion.
      100/(100 * .02) = 50
      To calculate the maximum average cost per click your campaign can have, take your target CPA and divide it by your required clicks.
      Target CPA/Required Clicks = Max Avg CPC
    • 24. Budget
    • 25. Custom Budgeting
      Every business has a different budget and needs. PPC advertising allows you to specify how much you want to spend on any given day or month.  Custom budgets tailored just for your business.
    • 26. Fixed and Self-Funding Budgets
      A fixed budget establishes a fixed amount you spend on PPC.
      A self-funding budget is based on your ability to fund your PPC campaign by meeting specified sales goals.
    • 27. Achieving Better ROI
    • 28. The “Brakes” in PPC
      What to do when your campaign isn’t working:
      Keep an Eye on Costs
      Not All Clicks Are Equal
      Know When to Stop Spending
      A/B Test
    • 29. Watch Your Google Quality Score
      -The historicalclickthrough rate (CTR) of the keyword and the matched ad
      -CTR of all the ads and keywords in your account
      -The historical CTR of the display URLs in the ad group
      -The quality of the landing page
      -The relevance of the keyword to the ads in its ad group
      -The relevance of the keyword and the matched ad to the search query
      -Your account's performance in the geographical region where the ad will be shown
      The higher your Quality Score, the lower your costs and the better your ad position.
    • 30. Investigate Long-Tail Keywords
      Long-tail keywords are three or more words.
      Traffic from long-tail keywords convert at a higher rate, and have a lower CPC, since demand for the keyword is lower.
    • 31. Good PPC = Good ROI
