Google Adwords is a system Google uses to place an ad on their a search engine to promote your business. This is good because you are being seen by customers at the very moment that they’re searching on Google for the things you offer and only pay when they click to visit your website or call depending on how you have set up your ad. Adwords is a key part to online marketing and here is why.
You start by creating an account with Google Adwords. After creating your account you attach a link to your website or URL that you want to drive customers to. It will ask for you to come up with a caption that describes what your link directed to. Next is setting up your target audience. Now you’ll be able to target who will see your ad. Creating a target audience can be sorted by age, gender, location etc. Once you have created your campaign you then set up the payment plan. Plans can range from a daily budget to a monthly budget. All that means is after you have reached $3.00 in click Adwords won’t keep on charging you. This is also good so you don’t generate more traffic then you can handle.
The way your ad is displayed by rank. How to rank for the top spot is determined by the amount you pay. Pay more the higher your ad will rank. Essentially you are biding for the top spot. These bids can range anywhere from $100 – $10 per click. Although it may be harder to have your ad be seen if you’re not the top bidder but that does not mean you aren’t going to be seen by potential customers. This is where SEO comes in.
