What is paid search?
Paid search allows you to place advertisements within relevant search queries on search engines like Google, Bing and so on.
Paid search (also known as PPC or Pay-Per-Click) results will appear above the organic results and will be linked to the keywords used by the user. Run on Google Adwords, Microsoft (Bing) Advertising, and/or Yahoo Gemini, paid search gets your business in front of anyone searching your direct keywords.
There’s a large difference between B2C focused paid search agencies and a B2B focused paid search agency, so be cautious in hiring a consumer-focused agency to run your B2B paid search strategy. There are many nuances that can get costly very quickly. Ledger Bennett understands the intricacies in navigating this space.
How would B2B paid search benefit you?
Paid search allows you to place advertising in front of a relevant audience.
Whether they are looking for a specific piece of content, researching potential solutions or have a specific intent, paid search can help you fill the top of your funnel with relevant prospects. The paid search model allows campaigns to be switched on and immediately drive traffic through media investment. It is a great starting point for driving short-term web traffic while SEO projects work to increase rankings in the longer term.
Our global B2B paid search agency experts have deep understanding of different regional behaviors, keyword to MQL-Closed/Won deal funnel optimizations, advanced script implementation, and consistently manage millions per year between Google, Bing, Yahoo Gemini, and others. Our goal is to take your grouping of keywords, create strong messaging through ad copy, and turn those clicks into leads through the funnel.
How is Ledger Bennett’s approach to B2B Paid Search different?
