Google AdWords is the perfect way to pull immediate traffic to a new website, a re-designed website or an old site that’s not ranking where you’d like it to be.

Not only that, but we are a certified partner of Google AdWords, which means that we are experts and fully approved by Google to create and manage your account, and to help you start succeeding.
Google AdWords is a powerful advertising tool that you can use to promote your business online. Basically, you are bidding for online search terms to get your company ads to appear in Google search results under “Sponsored Listings”. These ads can also show up on certain websites as display ads, which further increases their outreach to certain audiences. Google has an algorithm that can match your ads to websites that your customers are most likely to visit by analyzing the text, links, and page structure of millions of web sites. So not only will you have spots in search results, but your ads will be seen by people who you would most want seeing them. This is the very definition of getting “bang for your buck”. As valuable as AdWords can be, however, it can also be tough to navigate for someone with little experience and if you are not careful, there will be no return. That’s where we come in.
Google AdWords works by connecting people who want to purchase a certain product or service with those businesses who are selling that product or service. If you are selling sports equipment, then AdWords will put your ad in front of the eyes of people who are looking to buy sports equipment. This means you can find a willing and engaged audience almost immediately and not have to wait for the long term results from organic SEO.
In simple terms, to advertise with AdWords, you’ll need to bid on certain keywords to have your ad show up in the search query results for those words. Whenever someone clicks on your ad (sponsored link), you will pay a fee to Google based on your bid, hence “pay per click”. The more competitive the market, the more you’ll have to bid and make sure your overall campaign is optimized.
The best part about AdWords is that your ads will be on page 1 of Google rather quickly. Although, that means that you’ll have to make sure you convert those clicks to sales, otherwise you’ll start losing money. Which brings us to our next question…
There is so much that goes into creating an effective AdWords campaign. It isn’t as simple as creating an account and letting Google do all the work for you. There are challenges. For instance, you must do your keyword research to ensure you are bidding on the right keywords. Your ads must to be effective and grab the attention of your geographic target market to get visitors who are more likely to purchase your product. You don’t want to pay for clicks from people searching for football equipment in England, when they aren’t likely to buy your helmets and pads because they are soccer enthusiasts.
Many of Incite Digital Marketing’s clients have tried to create their own AdWords campaigns, only to find out that they were losing money hand over fist on clicks that weren’t converting.

Plus, they suggest creating ads that are straightforward and to the point, and setting up your site so that it will maximize the number of conversions you get after those clicks that you’re paying for.
