WordStream recommends 5 ways to reduce the costs of PPC in expensive keyword verticals:

  1. Eliminate irrelevant search combinations using negative keywords.
  2. Add geographic bid modifiers to narrow your terms and reduce the cost per keyword.

  4. Use mobile bid modifiers to capture greater intent and get direct calls to your company.
  5. Optimize your landing page to improve your quality score and conversion rate to increase the number of conversions that are making it through to your landing page.
