One of the big conversations that is going on today is how to allocate your money with your inbound marketing efforts. Marketers, on average, are using over 13 different tactics in their strategies to attract new leads (source: Content Marketing Institute), including infographics, blogging, email campaigns, videos, etc. So, how do we figure out where to spend it and how much to spend?

The inbound marketing strategy looks different for each business and industry. Budgets vary as well. But the important part of any inbound marketing strategy is using the resources available as effectively as possible to generate qualified leads. One tactic that is definitely showing results is pay per click (PPC), and I am recommending incorporating this paid tactic more and more each day.

For the majority of my clients, pay per click campaigns are needed and they’re working. Why? Because we’re working with our PPC partners, EverEffect, and our clients to:

  • hone in on relevant keyword combinations (organic and paid) for PPC campaigns
  • spend time on figuring out how to decrease their cost per acquisition (CPA)
  • allocate a budget for PPC campaigns each month

In other words, PPC works, but it takes time to really show results, like any other successful marketing tactic.

Part of this process is identifying which keywords are working for competitors and having a better understanding of the competitive landscape. We worked with Ispionage, a great search marketing tool, to create an infographic about how PPC campaigns can enhance your inbound marketing strategy. Along the way, we found some great stats about why PPC is working for everyone from Mom & Pop shops to huge corporations (and why Ispionage is facilitating those campaigns).

How PPC Campaigns Can Enhance Your Inbound Marketing Strategy

    I’ve spoken with a lot of PPC companies, but the most important thing that you can actually do to your marketing campaign is landing pages. Most companies sell you 1 single thing such as web design, or just Google Adwords, or just popups, or just retargeting etc. This is completely ludicrous because while 1 thing may make a difference in a stable marketing campaign, there is no single element that is a make or break element in online marketing, you need the entire package, and then hone/optimize from there. My business revenues increased by over 60% in two months once I picked a good agency that did more than just PPC, but also did my landing pages, retargeting, banner ads, etc. In fact, I’ve got Simon’s phone number right here, you can talk to him too. Just give him a call at 325-446-1507 .
