Google ads formerly known as google adwords is an online based advertising tool that businesses can use to promote their website and acts as Google’s platform for pay per click ads.
Google ads give businesses complete control over all aspects such as the ads they create, when those ads start and stop, how much money they wish to spend with daily budget options available and you can even set specific goals which you wish to achieve with your ad such as increasing website visits and product sales to conversions for completion of contact forms etc..
Google adwords basically works like an auction with businesses bidding on keywords and search terms and phrases that are used to match your specific ad with the similar terms that your target demographic is inputting in their searches online. When people search for keywords relevant to your ad the chances that google will display your ad to them are greatly increased.
A great thing about using CPC (Cost per Click) advertising through a tool such as Google ads is that you will only ever be charged when people actually click on your ad. This means that you are not generally wasting money as you are guaranteed that these people are at least visiting your website. The key however is to make sure it’s the right people visiting your site, your target demographic which would be the people in which you will generate conversions from. To ensure that you are targeting and reaching the right audience with your ads google offer excellent tools such as the keyword planner tool which will aid you when doing keyword research which is a vital thing to ensure you have done before embarking on any advertising campaign as it will inform your strategy.
While there is no cost to set up a Google Ads account, it will cost you to have your ads appear. To have your ads run successfully Google Ads will have you bid on the keywords you most wish to target just like an auction. Google follows the CPC (cost per click) bidding model for most of its ad services which means that if you tell google that your maximum daily budget is €20 and the click costs €5 your budget will buy you 4 clicks for the day.
When used wrongly adwords can be a waste of money but when used correctly as part of a structured and cohesive targeted campaign it can generate you a lot of conversions and success that make the cost per click well worth the price.
