While reading this article will not get a client’s site to the top 3 paid positions on Google search, it will give you a better idea of what search engine marketing is and what it means for a business.

By definition, Search engine marketing, also known as SEM, paid search, and PPC is the practice of marketing a business using paid advertisements that appear on search engine results pages (SERPs). The most popular vehicle for paid search right now is Google Adwords. We at Glacier Media Digital, believe it is one of the most effective ways to get a business found online when you don’t have the time and budget to optimize a website to organically rank in search.

No budget and time to get your website to rank organically? Paid search is an effective way to get your business in front of people who are searching for businesses just like yours!

Google Adwords allows you to bid on keywords that people are using in their search queries.

This involves researching keywords that are relevant and in-line with a company’s business. It also involves exploring keywords that competitors are bidding on to find the right balance between keywords that leads to clicks and keywords that falls within the budget. Adwords provides the opportunity to present ads the moment a user is searching for a client’s specific products or services.

It’s also a very transparent system that can provide daily reports and performance metric to analyze the progress of campaigns. This quick turnaround of data allows you to see what keywords people are using, how many clicks are generated and how many people are calling a business after seeing one of the ads.

By identifying the client’s website goals, their leads to sales rate and campaign objectives, we can work together to convert those clicks into leads and generate a positive ROI for the client.
