Pay-Per-Click is not for everybody, but has without a doubt, been the most effective form of advertising we have ever done. Through Google AdWords, we typically get about 2,000 new visitors a month to our websites at an average cost of 23 cents a click.
Of course, our ads (that show mostly in the right column of a Google search) are shown to tens-of-thousands of people every month, but we don’t pay a penny for that. We only pay (23 cents) for someone who actually clicks on our link and comes to one of our websites.
Here are the 12 steps to creating a Pay-Per-Click campaign with Google AdWords.
- Create an AdWords account at www.Google.com/AdWords
- Create new campaign
- Name your campaign
- Name your ad group
- Choose language
- Choose location
- Write your ad
- Choose keywords
- Choose daily budget
- Choose max PPC
- Review campaign
- Save campaign
If you advertise, you owe it to yourself to find more information on this at Google Adwords . If your business is local and you decide to use AdWords, be sure to pay close attention to how Google allows you to target just specific zip codes, or miles from a radius point, etc.
