PPC allows you to pay to list your site ahead of organic search results

Search engines allow businesses and individuals to bid for positions in their search results, usually above or below the standard organic listings. The search engine is then paid when a user clicks on the sponsored listing.

Pay-per-click can help you:
  • Reach your target audience at the right time and place
  • Unlike organic search, PPC ads can show results very quickly
  • Shout your brand from the rooftops and make an impression
  • Get quick, measurable results from the word ‘go’
  • Allow you to turn a ‘one-off purchaser’ into a ‘lifetime customer’
  • You set your budget to control costs
Search Advertising

The most common type of ad displayed at the top and bottom of the organic search results identifiable by their small ‘Ad’ logo. 93% of online experiences begin with a search engine so being found at the right time by your audience is key.

Display Advertising

Display advertising shows your adverts across partner websites, all over the internet. Contextual targeting for display advertising allows you to decide when and and where you show your ads. Then most importantly, you can decide who to show your ads to.

A true digital strategy should include Search and Display campaigns

Video Advertising

In-stream ads play before or during another video from a YouTube partner. Viewers see five seconds of your video and then have the choice to keep watching or skip it. Charged on a pay-per-view (PPV) basis, you are only charged when a consumer engages with your ad.

Online Shopping

Effectively a window shop for an eCommerce website, showing your products in a carousel above the search results allowing customers to see your product and price before they’ve even visited your website. You can bid independently on product depending on their value to your business.

Video reviews give consumers confidence in their shopping choices

Social Advertising

Social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat & LinkedIn are where people hang out and spend ever more time and it’s where brands need to be to be seen. You can pay to show more ads to your chosen audience through a vast amount of targeting options.


Show text and image ads to users who have previously visited your website and entice them to come back and purchase or even repurchase. 97% of users do not convert on their first visit to a website, give a chance to try again.

5 Steps to PPC Success


Set your budget Set your spend to an amount you are comfortable with. And establish what you expect in return.
Choose your platform If you have the budget, try as many as possible but choose the platform that your consumers are most likely to engage with.
Set your targeting This is hugely important. Set it broad enough to test what is out there, but tight enough so you are relevant to your audience.
Design your creatives Whether it’s text, image or video, make sure you strike a nerve with those users. Be informative and interesting. Stand out from the crowd.
Recycle the returns You should always be looking to improve. Learn what’s working from isn’t and amend accordingly then go again.
