Does Google PPC Advertising Work for Really Small Businesses in St. Paul and Minneapolis?
According to Google Adwords Experts, Google ad campaigns are only effective if you’re spending a minimum of $1,500 per month on ads. When buying PPC ad space on Google, you’re paying to ensure that your website appears at the top of Google’s search results. Google ads appear before “organic” results (ie. pages that people aren’t paying to promote). Paid search ads on Google are scalable, with $1,500 being the lowest end of the spectrum. Many companies, like large retailers or Fortune 500 companies, actually spend millions of dollars on Google Ads. If you can afford to invest a minimum of $1,500 in ad spending, Google ads might be a great option for your business. Call our Google Ads Specialists at (320) 358-1000 to learn more.
For many professional services firms and small businesses in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area, that level of investment in PPC advertising is not feasible. Luckily, Facebook advertising provides a great alternative for paid search marketing.
Understanding Facebook Advertising
PSM is a PPC marketing agency dedicated to finding scalable solutions for clients of any size. For most of our clients, Facebook advertising is a great way to invest in ad spending without the huge financial commitment required by Google Ads. Facebook PPC advertising allows us to promote your Facebook business page, products, or website through the world’s largest social media platform. With over 2.3 billion users worldwide, Facebook is a ripe landscape for finding potential clients, customers, or donors.
Facebook advertising is divided into three echelons:
- Campaigns – In Facebook advertising, campaigns are used to track individual goals (ie. increase website traffic). You can create multiple campaigns for each measurable goal.
- Ad Sets – Ad sets are a way to divide your campaign into measurable components (ie. different audiences). This is important because it allows you to target different demographics with varying messages.
- Ads – Ads are a great place to conduct A/B testing on different graphics or ad copy. Do people respond better to video or a static image? A long tome, or a short snippet of text?
