There are a variety of tactics you can use for pay per click advertising. It is important to be aware that you can lose a lot of money. This is because, despite the fact you may not have made any sales, your campaign will still be eating up money. The key question is how to manage your campaigns so that you can get the best value for your dollar?
The success of your pay per click advertising depends on keywords. You can get warm ready to buy customers with a good selection of keywords. You will make plenty of sales and make good money. However if you pick the wrong keywords your campaign may not give you any sales in spite of the fact that you could be paying top dollar for the keywords.
There are many tools available to help you find the best keywords. A general rule of thumb is to not get the most vague, expensive keywords if they are more than you can afford. For example, unless you have a lot of money to spend and a fantastic product, you might not want to use “work at home” as a keyword. Words like “home based business” have a huge amount of competition. It may be smart to avoid niches that have an unbelievable amount of competition at first. A niche like this could cost you thousands of dollars per day in order to do well. It is a big gamble, and it might not pay off.
A good strategy is to drill down into a sub-niche. For example, if you sell sports team apparel, you probably don’t want to use “football” as a keyword. Instead, try using “Kansas City Chiefs apparel”. If you use a keyword with less demand, you’ll pay less for it. Another reason that this strategy works is because it is more direct. Someone who types in “Kansas City Chiefs apparel” is looking to buy apparel. However, someone who types in football might be looking for the latest college football scores. There isn’t a very good chance that they’re going to buy anything, but they just cost you money by clicking on your ad. It’s obvious which type of person you want clicking on your ad.
Another good tactic is to use multiple campaigns. You can use a separate campaign for every NFL team. You can see which ads to use according to your budget. You will make more sales by using niche or specialized keywords, rather than general ones.
A great place to pick up good keywords is by using your web logs. You can see what keywords visitors have used to come to your site and use these same keywords in your campaigns.
