  • Sean asked “Is Advertising Dead?”
  • Tell you What Paid Search is, why it’s powerful, why you might like it if you like to measure things. About 900,000 searches are done on Google per second.
  • What is Paid search - TOP AND SIDE of results (light pink). modern day Yellow Pages. From the searcher’s standpoint, I type in something I need, and get results. Paid and organic results. From the advertiser’s standpoint – I have the opportunity to convince you to come to my site instead of my competition.
  • Focus on wording and offer in my “ads.”
  • From Google’s standpoint….what they make in advertising pays for everything else they do.
  • Baconalia! Display ads – distinct from paid search. I can do paid search with display ads…but for this discussion, let’s keep them separate. Ok. Bacon, mortgage rates…Are B2B technology companies using paid search?What is in it for Spark? Focus on entrepreneurial assets and resources,biosciences, alternative energy.
  • 8 results – inventory procurement software. Introduce terms – Keywords, Ads.
  • PPC / CPC
  • Quickly scalable advertising – if your campaigns are effective, channel more dollars there. What other ad channels are scalable like this? TV, radio, digital outdoor.
  • There are not a lot of Denny’s in Iowa. Negative keywords narrow the scope to save money. Ie, “bacon.” Targeting gets to the right PEOPLE
  • Location applies in a number of ways – Major search engines are where your fingers do the walking, google and YouTube are both accessible via one platform - AdWords
  • This just gets better. Like inbound programs, paid search is measurable. Advertiser’s Dream, CFO’s Dream. Also use dummy tests – sales.
  • The World’s Fastest Indian Anthony Hopkins
  • Location applies in a number of ways – Major search engines are where your fingers do the walking
  • What else might Paid Search be? Top of funnel. Absolutely. It’s easy to see how Paid Search is part of an inbound marketing program. It’s a type of an inquiry.
