Bruce Clay Blog : 3/22 : Paid Search/Online AdsNovember 17, 2010
Google’s strange new fashion site Boutiques.com launched in beta today at prime time before the holidays. For merchants, the concept is similar to pay-per-click ads, with retailers paying when a user clicks through from Boutiques.com to their websites. For users (ahem, women users for the time being), it’s a personalized online store aiming to bring targeted clothing, accessories and inspirations for outfits based on your personal style. But what does it mean for search?

This is going to be a great session because not only do I get to liveblog, but I went to the restroom BEFORE the session this time – live and learn right?
No – seriously I’m looking forward to this session because I’ve recently been heavily involved in consulting for an agency client on the issues site owners face in proper online attribution. So I’m hoping that not only will I be able to provide a quality liveblog record of the session, but that I might even learn a thing or two along the way myself.

Success in pay per click search advertising requires a mind that’s methodical and adaptive, empirical and intuitive, structured and creative. And that’s not all. For an established campaign, many tasks of PPC marketing are done continuously and sometimes even simultaneously.
It would be easy for a PPC professional to become dizzy just thinking of all the tasks and requirements of the job. But the overwhelming responsibilities can be managed when considered in their proper order. Some tasks of a project will be more effective and efficient when other tasks have been accomplished beforehand — a PPC hierarchy of needs, if you will.
Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs is a popular diagram that illustrates this concept as it applies to human psychology. This diagram has done much to raise awareness and to bring theoretical order to the complex system of psychological motivators.
In the same way, this PPC hierarchy of needs diagrams and orders the multifaceted requirements of search engine advertising. Like Maslow’s Hierarchy, the PPC hierarchy of needs diagram is a pyramid where needs at the top of the pyramid can’t be fulfilled until needs below it are met. Read more.
