About PPC Managment Fees
What You Need to Know
Only on search engines can you reach exactly the people who are looking for you, at exactly the moment they want to spend money. And only in online advertising can you find out where your leads are coming from, and just what happens after they click. That’s why the return on investment on PPC has always been high.
However, PPC Management occurs in a competitive live auction, so management can be time-consuming. And the mistakes made by the uninitiated can be costly. We’ve been on both the selling side and the buying side of PPC and we’ve seen the results DIY campaigns and campaigns managed by agencies.
Fees for PPC management must recognize both:
- The initial cost of setting up an account.
- The level of effort necessary to build not just a functional account but one that is optimized to reduce costs, build increasingly well-targeted traffic, and capitalize on that traffic with the most effective and persuasive messages.
Only on search engines can you reach exactly the people who are looking for you, at exactly the moment they want to spend money.A good online marketer understands the fundamental difference between online marketing and traditional advertising: feedback data that allows continuous improvement by testing and validating against the best possible audience – the customers themselves.
To be just that, good online marketers –- and pass the results to you, we at Amiable hold ourselves to a model of continuous improvement and accountability.
So that’s PPC, but what makes us different? With our high standards of ethics, integrity and personal service, you get something a little different from the rest of the crowd:
- We don’t dump unfiltered lists into your account. We work with you to learn your business and collect keywords that reflect that business.
- We don’t rely exclusively on automated keyword insertion to produce results. You won’t “find it all on eBay” here. We take the time to understand your value proposition and your customer segments, and write ads that reflect your actual business and the actual offers you present.
- We tread carefully before we begin. We don’t insert management metrics into an automated system unless they fully reflect your costs and your unique financial picture. We ask the right questions regarding your specific business and the factors that should determine your PPC bids and budgets.
- An intelligent mind is care-taking over your spend, not just an automated robot. Though we do make use of industry tools for efficiency and best practice, we always personally review and revise bids and costs based on an informed understanding of your unique business objectives.
At Amiable our motto is: “It isn’t good business unless everybody wins.”
That means we go the extra mile to make sure that the true returns of your PPC account are visible, clear, and actionable. We don’t just give you reports, we make sure you know how to act on them.
