Paid Ads (Pay Per Click) for Small and Midsize Businesses (SMB)
Let Realtors Around You Know Who You Are
PPC is one of the most important aspects of a well-established digital marketing strategy
And that’s exactly why you shouldn’t even think of omitting it. However, not many business owners hold a complete understanding of the concept.
According to HubSpot, “Pay-Per-Click, commonly referred to as PPC, is a paid advertising approach which falls under the Search Engine Marketing. Whenever a person interacts with the ad through clicks or impressions, the advertiser will be charged a specific amount of fee.”
When done perfectly, PPC helps businesses earn huge amount of high-quality leads, which ultimately results in a huge ROI. Not only is PPC used in Google or Bing, but it’s also used in various social channels.
Listed below are the top reasons why PPC is a must-have in any digital marketing strategy, and small businesses & e-commerce sites are no different.
- Targeted Audience
- Immediate Results
- High Conversion Rate
- Optimize Search Results
- Measurable ROI
What is the difference between search ads and display ads?
At Omni we like to distinguish between two types of leads:
- Ready to act lead
- Potential lead
The ready-to-act leads are the ones who would Google “small businesses around me”.These kind of leads are:
– They know what title company is
– They know they need a title company
Ready to act leads are the ones who are looking to engage with youRIGHT NOW. Typically we would address them with Google Search Ads. Here’s an example:
Google Search Ads for title companies:
And this is how it looks from Google ads control:
Google ads is a machine with thousands of options. There are so many ways to run ads on Google. If done right and with attention to detail, search ads can be super effective. But if you manage them without understanding all the factors, you can end up throwing your money on clicks of audience who are not your clients and on ads which won’t convert.
What happens after they clicked on your ad?
This question is often overlooked. If the person who reacted to your search ad clicked on the phone icon and called you sales- well that’s where marketing is assigning a lead to sales. But what if that person clicked on the ad to visit your site? Basically this would be the case most of the times. Well then, he/her would get an impression of your website, your brand and in some point make a decision whether they are going to act or not.
Here’s a secret. In 90% of the cases, they will leave your site without taking any action.
This is where display ads and re-targeting ads are stepping in:
Display networks are groups of more than 2 million websites in which your title agency’s ads can appear.
What is re-targeting?
We will embed a pixel or a cookie code in your site. This code will be able to identify the IP’s which visited your site. Once after they visited your site, they will continue to see your ads in many other sites or apps.
So, if a real estate agent in your area:
- Googled “title companies near me”
- Then saw your search ad and clicked on it
- Then visited your site
- And didn’t take action
- And you don’t want to miss him
- Now he will see your ads in various other sites, getting the impression that you are a very serious title company
And that’s not all! Think about the same agent listing a house, seeing your ad on Realtor.com AND, subscribing to your email newsletter, AND seeing your posts on LinkedIn, AND your videos on Facebook, PLUS someone from your office keeps on liking his posts.
Is that a no brainier? We believe it is!
