Let’s face it, Google has become so pervasive in our society that not only is Google a company, a brand, and a $1000+ stock, they are also a verb. The phase to “google it” has replaced the phrase to “search it”. If you are planning to find something on the web, you are using Google. If you want customers to find you, they are going to use Google.

In most digital marketing strategies, there are long-term tactics and there are short term tactics.

Google Ads Relevance
Connect with consumers when it’s relevant. Google Ads show ads to potential customers when they’re actively searching for what businesses like yours have to offer. Your ads are being shown when decisions are being made. A recent survey shows 89% of consumers making in-store purchases have conducted online research prior to purchase.
Return on Investment (ROI)
Measure and improve your return on investment. Google Ads includes a range of helpful online tracking tools which explain what’s working, what’s not, and what adjustments can be made to maximize the investment of your marketing budget. You only pay when consumers click on your ad to go to your site. Campaigns can be adjusted, paused, or stopped at any time.
How Do Google Ads Work
Your ads may appear in a number of different ways on a number of different devices. When users perform a search query on Google, at the top of the listings and on the right hand side are usually found “sponsored listings”. These are ads which are matched to the keywords of the search term.
When users click on the ads, they are taken to a page on the advertiser’s website. A fee is charged to the advertiser by Google. The Pay-Per-Click model of advertising means that the advertiser is only charged when a user clicks on the ad. Every dollar spent on advertising is spent driving traffic to your website. Google Ads is truly a pay for performance system.
