5 Essential Things to a Successful PPC Search Ads
Lets be clear, perfect search ad does not exist. There is always space for improvement with a your PPC campaign, it is only a matter of time, money and cost. But that said there are certain things which can contribute to a search ad getting the best click through rate, while also promoting your brand.
Call to action in Title and Description
To the point, the call to action is leading web users to exactly what you want them to do to convert. If the users know what they should do, and how they should interact with your ad campaign, they are more likely convert. That said, it is a good idea to put a call to action in your title and your description. But be also keep in mind that if you use call to actions more than that, you put at risk that your search ad is forcing the message too much.
Brand or URL at the End of Title
When a user does not click your ad, it does not mean the end of the world and that you don’t benefit since it is a good idea to put your brand or URL of your company at the end of the title, such as ‘| Company.com’ for example. That will make the brand or URL more recognised with the contextual search phrase the user is searching for. And over a longer period of time you will be improving the brand awareness of your company without paying a cent.
Quantifiable Enticing Data
Put some sort of numbers in the search ad because people like numbers when comparing different things and it helps to encourage users to click onto your ad, since it gives the user a quantifiable way of comparing your search ad against the competition.
Google allows you to use a range of different ad extensions in your search advert, such as site links, location, telephone numbers, ratings, reviews and more. Ad extensions are a good way to add some content and contextuality to your website, which will all encourage more web users to click it.
True URL Used
there is generally one rule to follow when it comes to choosing what URL to display in the search advert – does it work? You can choose a good looking URL, that is short and full of keywords. But you need to check out if the URL is actually leading to a place that exists and does not give you an 404 error. So always check the URL you use in PPC that it actually works.
