PPC Search Campaign- An overview

PPC is an online marketing technique, in which advertisers pay a fee every time their advertisement is being clicked. It is essentially a way to purchase site visits, not to “earn” organically those visits.

Search engine advertising is one of the most common PPC forms. It enables advertisers to place ads in sponsored links of a search engine if they search for the keyword associated with their business.

Sometimes things get overlooked, items slip through cracks, and months afterward, you scratch your head and ask how the scarf publicity landed users on a hat page. In that order, Google Ads was one of the biggest online advisors for the PPC search engines: Google, Yahoo, and Bing. If you are a new company, who wants to take you into the world of PPC marketing but don’t know what to do, then look no further, because Headland Marketing has put together a checklist to ensure that you are in the right direction towards PPC success.

The checklists in this post are valid for PPC search networks that are built on ground as well as for those that are copied and pasted from current campaigns that carry all settings. Although the copy/paste approach is convenient, it is always necessary to adjust appropriately, or the campaign can go off track. Let’s have a look at the PPC Campaign checklist:
