A Beginner’s 4-Step Guide: Delicious PPC Tips for Small Businesses

PPC tips shade

Are you a small business owner who’s ready to delve into Pay-Per-Click (PPC) advertising?

When embarking on a PPC campaign, following these four basic guidelines will help you create and sustain a successful PPC campaign.

1 Wedding and 4 Search Stories

saying words at a wdding

I’d never been in a wedding party before this weekend. That I sit here relating the experience of a wedding with search marketing may reveal a lot about my priorities. But it’s no stretch to explore the SEM lessons of a real-life event.

Here’s what went down. This destination wedding between a Texan and a Brazilian was at a campground in Newport Beach. The wedding was Friday and from Thursday night through Sunday afternoon, much of the wedding party stayed at the campground or the Hyatt next door. The best destination wedding ever planned by the best party planner ever had more than a few takeaways for good planning and setting the stage for lively engagement with guests.

Bruce Clay Europe’s managing director Ale Agostini recently co-authored a brand new book for the European business community with Bruce Clay on holistic Web marketing called, “Trovare clienti con Google,” or in English, “Finding Customers with Google.”

How Social Networks Influence Online Advertising

Back when a facebook was actually a book comprised of pictures of college students and Google wasn’t even a word, it was Leo Burnett who said , “A good basic selling idea, involvement and relevancy, of course, are as important as ever, but in the advertising din of today, unless you make yourself noticed and believed, you ain’t got nothin’.”

Fast forward 40 years after Burnett’s passing, and we find ourselves in the Age of Social Media Marketing, where involvement and relevance are the currency of the land, especially for businesses, small and large. A lot of their money is spent on advertising and marketing in ways that would have seemed alien to someone like Leo Burnett in the days of yore. We’ve gone from radio spots and periodical ads to targeted brand presence on Facebook, bidding for PPC words, and creating display ads. The advertising times have changed, indeed.

Getting SMBs Online – Today on SEM Synergy

businesses on the street

Today on SEM Synergy, I rounded up a PPC power line-up during my time at SES San Francisco. Interviews with paid search specialists Kevin Lee of Didit, Andrew Goodman of Page Zero Media and Jason O’Hare and Will Eisner of WordStream touch upon the increasingly complex state of online advertising today. The landscape navigated by a paid search marketer is undergoing dramatic shifts, as search engines Yahoo! and Bing partnered and with newer social media channels competing for resources and attention.

For small businesses engaged in or newly exploring online marketing, it’s a chore to get a working understanding of each channel, the ROI potential and the compound effect of channels interaction with one another.

Ok kids, time to get the live-blogging kinks out and see if I “still got it”. It’s after lunch and time for some good info to be shared across the IM community. It’s been a year since I last did this, so let’s see if my fingers can keep up.

Bill says he’s going to break up the session a bit, by covering the basics then going into the advanced. The audience is more advanced, so the basics should go quickly.
