If you market online and you use pay per click ads to drive traffic to your website, have you ever wished that you could lower your PPC marketing costs? If you’re marketing in a non-competitive niche, then you may already have PPC costs which are on the lower end of the spectrum. If you market in competitive niches however, you know that it is a battle to get first page ad listings without paying a premium amount.
There are ways to lower the amount of money you spend on PPC marketing however and it doesn’t take much time to bring down the amount you are paying. Here are a few tips on how you can lower your PPC marketing costs:
- Those in Internet marketing that use PPC ads, only get charged when an Internet user clicks on their ad(s). Making the ad be seen less is not an option because the purpose of the ad is to gain traffic, which can therefore increase sales. Rather than using broad based keywords and phrases in the ad copy though, it can help if you use very focused keywords and phrases that mean the same thing, but have less competition. For example, if you are marketing a dog training product, “dog training” is the broad based key phrase that would normally be used. If you break that niche down however into a key phrase such as “dog training anti-bark collars”, there is not as much competition using those exact keywords. While less people will see the PPC ads, the ones who do will be looking for the exact product that you are using in your ad copy.
- Another way you can lower PPC marketing costs is to implement SEO on your website if it’s not already there. If you already have your website SEO’d, then you may need to revamp it to try to gain rank in the organic search engines. The better ranked your website is organically in the search engines, the less you will have to depend on PPC ads in order to drive traffic to your website.
The costs of using PPC ads in Internet marketing can be frustrating and expensive. However, using the two tips above, combined with other methods can help you reduce your PPC costs and also increase your conversions.
