What are you looking for in a PPC Agency?

Google Premier Partner? Check.

Out of over 10,000 agencies in the UK that offer PPC management, only just over 100 are Google Premier Partners, so we sit nicely in the top 1% of agencies, as a result we have access to our own agency team at Google and all those shiny Google BETA’s, if gaining a competitive advantage floats your boat.

Experience? Check and check.

We don’t have teenagers still sporting acne, making decisions on business critical campaigns. All our team are experienced, fully qualified, paid advertising professionals. We’ve been around well over a decade, and most of our team have been along for the ride.

Results? (cue mic drop).

We’ve won awards for our work (you have no idea how resource draining entering those things are. We much prefer working on client projects).

Our current client projects include: growing SME’s, genuinely original start-ups, worthy charities and household brands.

Our work covers four continents, but the UK is our home and where we spend most of our days.

Why Us?

(Good question.. Probably should have led with this)

We could write war and peace here, but frankly, you won’t read it, and we don’t want to.

We have worked with hundreds of eCommerce and lead generation projects, and we consistently deliver year on year growth for them.

You might need to move to the next level. Maybe your in-house team just needs support, or our personal favourite – you’re ambitious and you want to create more opportunities and convert more often. If this is the case, then we might be the best PPC Management Agency for you.

  • What is pay per click?

    If you’re new to advertising your business or yourself online then you might not know about SEM or PPC (or pay per click). This useful guide will give you an overview of what PPC is about and how it can benefit your business.

    PPC is a digital marketing medium that lets you pay for relevant or interested users to come to your website after they have seen your adverts displayed on a search engines results page (think Google or Bing results pages). You don’t pay to have your adverts displayed and seen by the user, but only pay when someone clicks on the advert and goes to your website or mobile app.

    You can select search terms or ‘keywords’ that you want to make sure your adverts appear for and then you can set the maximum bid you are prepared to pay for someone who types in that keyword and clicks on your advert. This means you can control the traffic to your website. What they searched for and the cost of getting them to your website.

    Example:

    You are a company who sells a specific type of car. You only sell red sports cars.

    You can choose to bid on keywords such as ‘red sports car’ or ‘best sports cars in red’

    You might not want to appear for ‘cheapest sports cars’ or ‘blue sports cars.’

  • How does the pay per click auction work?

    Once you have selected your keywords and your maximum bids, as well as created your adverts then you’re ready to go.  Each time a user types in a keyword that you are bidding on, then you will be entered into an auction with every other company who is also bidding on that same keyword. Remember your top bid is the maximum you will pay for that keyword.

    The results of the auctions for pay per click on search engines like Google and Bing are not just based on whoever bids highest. Bidding the most on a keyword does not guarantee first position. Instead search engines use something called ad rank to decide who is position 1, 2, 3, etc….

    Ad rank is a calculation based on your maximum bid (also known as maximum CPC or cost per click), as well as something called a quality score. Quality score is made up of many things, which we will not go into it here (as this is just about the basics). However we can say that quality score is designed to make sure that whoever bids most is not automatically first in the paid ads results. Rightly, this is because whoever pays most might not be the best thing for the user themselves and gives every company from the largest to the smallest a fairer opportunity to market their products or services.

    So the search engines will take your maximum bid and your quality scores and use a calculation to create you ad rank (max CPC x QS = Ad Rank). You have the highest ad rank for that one search at that one time to that one user and your companies advert will be position 1 in the paid ads results.

    The search engines run this pay per click auction in the fraction of a second it takes for the user to type in their search and click the enter/search button.

  • What is Adwords?

    Google Adwords is the PPC platform created and owned by Google. It provides the opportunity for companies to market their products and services using Google’s search engine, Display network and You Tube video sharing platform.  While there are more platforms available such as Bing Ads, private ad exchanges and for overseas marketing

  • Pay per click in the modern age.

    Pay per click marketing has evolved beyond this basic premise of bidding on a keyword and a user clicking your advert in a search engines results pages (also known as SERPS). Now there are so many more opportunities to connect with your target audience and not all are based on a pay per click model, albeit they fall under the paid search umbrella.

    For example you can pay per thousand impressions of your display adverts (image banner adverts you see on other people’s websites). An impression is where a user see’s your image adverts or display adverts, but do not have to click on them. If they click on them then you do not pay for the click as you are already paying per thousand impressions.

    You can pay for people to view your videos, whether its informational videos, product adverts or anything else.

    Paid advertising on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter all fall under PPC.

    We have not begun to discuss opportunities like remarketing, retargeting, behaviour bidding or some of the other more complex aspects of pay per click marketing. PPC is not to be confused with SEO, which is the art of improving a website or mobile apps online visibility in organic search results, where you do not pay per click.

  • You choose the audience.

    You can control who you appear to, when you appear to them, what messages they see and where on your website they go to. This level of control allows you to find your perfect customers then tailor a message and experience.

  • Instant data

    Paid search often happens in real time so you can get data on the day’s performance and immediate insight. Unlike other marketing channels that need to be built up before seeing the real successes or analytical insight, PPC generates data from day one. You can appear on page one of a search engines SERPS (search engine results pages) the same day you go live with a PPC campaign. Therefore as a route to market PPC is often a popular first choice.

  • Transparency

    Provided you have the appropriate tracking set up to support your ppc activity then you can have complete transparency unlike other marketing channels. You can see exactly how much you have invested. What data that has generated and what ROI, Conversions, Performance that has generated.

    This level of visibility for your ROI and performance is another reason any digital marketing strategy should include PPC in its thoughts.  

  • Flexibility

    There is no such thing as a one size fits all in PPC. You can have two websites offering the exact same products to the exact same customers and you can get two completely different sets of performance results.

    With the amount of options available to you through pay per click, be it remarketing, search, display, RLSA’s, scheduling, geographic targeting and more, each pay per click campaign can be as unique as you and your products.

  • Good PPC Management can turn failure into opportunity.

    Converted are often asked to help turn around underperforming or stagnating ppc projects. In fact this is our most common issue when approached by potential clients. This proves that there are businesses that have been operating their own ppc campaigns for some time, as well as other professional digital marketing agencies, who still cannot deliver the right performance to match their business targets. Performance in adwords or any pay per click campaign is not guaranteed.

    So if you are a new start up company or someone who has never used paid search/pay per click before, getting the right results can be even harder. Before you know it you can spend lots for little or no return. Getting the strategy and implementation of your pay per click and biddable media campaigns is essential and this is where agency support can be vital.

  • The qualified expertise

    There are multiple ad platforms, whether it’s different search engines, ad networks or digital advertising mediums such as video, display and search. All require different knowledge and understanding. Google alone has exams for search marketing (basics and advanced), mobile marketing, video marketing, display marketing and Google Analytics to pass.

    When you work with an agency you have access to this knowledge and skill set. You have a team that keeps up to date with the latest innovations in pay per click, CRO, UX as well as the latest technical requirements.

  • The time you can save.

    When committing to PPC, you have to be aware of the amount of time needed to properly research, create, implement, analyse and refine a pay per click project. PPC can be both labour intensive and highly specialised. If you have neither the time the skills or the experience, then ppc management is often a more profitable and more realistic solution.  

    Without expert support you can lose valuable time that you could spend working on other aspects of your business, just trying to keep on top of what the data says, let alone keeping tabs on the industry, competitors and planning and implementation of change and improvements.

  • The money you can save

    Paying for a PPC agency might seem counter intuitive to the argument of saving money. However it is in all likelihood the outcome you would see. An agency who knows what they are doing should always be able to deliver better results than someone who manages their own paid search campaigns. In such a specialised industry it is hard for people from other industries to become an expert at PPC while fulfilling duties in their own business.

  • Not reliant on one person

    You may want to choose to hire your own in house PPC team. While this is a viable option, you must remember that a good digital agency will have a team of qualified professional consultants. Should you hire one in house individual you trust all results and knowledge to this one person. Additionally the cost of hiring just one pay per click expert in house can be more expensive than using an agency. This is before holidays and sickness is factored in, at which times you are likely to be without anyone actively managing your ppc activity.  Considering the minimum holidays are 28 days in the UK, this means no active management for one month out of every 12.

  • Will I receive help with my proposals?

    For all our active white label digital partners we have assisted not only in the tendering process but also successfully secured business for clients. Our insight and research can prove invaluable in defining the right strategy for your clients. What if some of our services match your own. There is nothing to fear. As a white label or referring client you are just as valuable a partnership – if not more so – than any single client. We actively ensure we respect the relationships at all times. Cultivating mutually beneficial long-term digital partnerships is the key to our success. We are proud to say we have a 100% retention rate for our white label partnerships.

  • The reporting and insight

    When you hand over your marketing budget, whether it is in the thousands or the millions, you need to feel comfortable that the money will be appropriately managed and that you will get the right insight and reporting. So that you can understand the data and results paid search marketing generates for your business.

    When you use an agency like Converted you will benefit from people who know what is important to your business and what is ‘background noise.’ Therefore the insight, ideas and observations can prove critical to long term ROI and ROAS performance.  

    Additionally you can focus on other areas of the business knowing that you will regularly receive meaningful reporting that provides the right data and insight to allow you to confidentially make strategic decisions to benefit your business.
