Benefits of PPC Advertising

You choose what search terms you want to target

When you set up PPC Ads, you decide what search terms you want them to show for. Unlike organic search, where sometimes your site might show for keywords you don't want to target (or maybe not show when you want it to), with PPC you have complete control.

Your paid search ads show when you want them to

As soon as you set up your PPC Ads, they will start to show for whatever search terms you targeted. Similarly, you can just as easily stop them from showing. This makes them perfect for businesses that have highs and lows in their sales. Just turn them on when you need them.

You decide how much you want to spend on PPC

With Pay Per Click Advertising, you have complete control over how much you want to spend. When setting it up, you decide how much you want to spend a day and your ads will stop when they reach that limit, so no surprises.

You only pay when someone visits your website

As the name suggests, you "Pay per Click". That means that you are only charged when someone clicks on your ad and goes through to your website.

You can get to the top of Google (or Bing) immediately

Because the PPC Ads show in prominent positions on the search engine results page; by simply setting up your ad you will immediately be seen by searchers. However, it depends on how competitive the keywords you have chosen are as to how much it will cost to be at the top.
