Paid Search Marketing Lessons from 2015: Our PPC Virtual Conference Recap

Paid search marketing image of computers

Search engine marketing grew up a lot in 2015. Advertisers began looking beyond Google desktop PPC ads to mobile ads across Google, Yahoo and Bing, as well as new sponsored post opportunities on many major social networks. New ad formats targeted the mobile user specifically, and verticals for automotive, hotel, insurance and other industries sprang up, each with its own specific ad types. Remarketing ads (which display to people who previously clicked on an ad or visited a web property but did not convert) became more prevalent; for instance, remarketing in Bing ads became possible for Search and Shopping campaigns.

Our livebloggers captured news and lots of in-depth information from top paid search experts throughout the year. Here we present the four most popular of those to bring search marketers up-to-speed on 2015 developments in pay per click.

Fresh Tips on Designing Ad Images, for Non-Designers (aka Digital Marketers) – #SMX Liveblog

Dustin Stout liveblog

Full disclosure: I am pretty excited for this session, “Getting Images Right in Paid Search.” The content team here at Bruce Clay, Inc. makes a lot of images for search and social, both for content marketing and ads. We test a lot of tools, sites and tactics when it comes to designing images. We’re pretty good at what we do, but there’s always room to learn more — especially from a first class designer like Dustin Stout, the CMO at Weal Media in Los Angeles. Stout does not disappoint.

“Let’s put design talk into real world talk. This is for people who are not designers, but use visuals in their marketing,” Stout says. Then he proceeds to teach us:

  • 3 facts about modern visual advertising
  • What are the visual indicators of trust
