An Intervention for a PPC Addict

In my previous life, I was a social worker who helped mentally ill and chemically addicted adults on their road to recovery. I see many of the same symptoms of addictive behavior in too many pay-per-click (PPC) advertisers today. After all, there’s something terribly seductive about the simplicity of creating a PPC (define) ad; within moments your ad shows up and gets you clicks. As the high continues, you crave more, adding more keywords and new campaigns to keep increasing…

Why I Won’t Buy From You!

Actually the answer is pretty simple. You haven’t given me sufficient reason to choose you over your competitors. Today’s customer has more choice, more knowledge, and even tabbed browsing to evaluate you and distinguish you from all of your competitors. In the few seconds they’ll invest in your website, if they can’t decide why you might be the solution to their want or need, they’ll close that tab faster than your Flash promotion can ever engage them. I just returned…

Creating the PPC Searcher’s Journey For visitors to convert, the five steps of the PPC searcher’s journey must be in alignment along the conversion path. I describe that five-part journey below.

The Google AdWords Drama

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you might even kiss your money good bye. Google AdWords is one of the most remarkable advertising vehicles in the history of marketing.

SEM Intent & Landing Page Conversions

If you knew the true intent of a search inquiry (query) and you could respond to that intent perfectly then you’d convert most of the time.

Poor PPC Management from PPC Management Vendor Marin. Oooops!

Pay Per Click management can be a challenge when you have lots of keywords, ads and landing pages you are working with. So many companies choose to use PPC Management software like Marin, Kenshoo or ClickEquations*. Today I did a Google search for SES Chicago that is coming up next week and I will be attending.
