It has become very commonplace nowadays for the majority of sites that you log in via Google or any other search engine to contain PPC classifieds and ads. In fact, a considerable section of almost all the pages of a typical site is taken up by such sponsored results. And there is a good reason why these results are consistently displayed on the SERPs-they enable advertisers as well as site owners to make money.
So, it is no wonder then that these sponsored or paid-for listings attract clicks that is comparatively much more than clicks on organic SEO pages. Statistically speaking for every organic click, 2 clicks are recorded for listings with keywords having a huge commercial value. Simply put, more than 60% of users in the US click on classifieds promoted by Google Adwords whenever they wish to place an online order (for a product) or make an appointment with a lawyer or dentist (service related click).
If you’re a dentist looking to improve the footfall number at your chamber devising a target-oriented dental SEO strategy might go a long way in helping you to accomplish your goal. For instance, creating and implementing brand new Google Adwords search engine campaign may help in your site attracting more clicks from niche prospects (patients looking for an Invisalign implant or root canal treatment). For a great majority of dentists, the very idea of opting for an SEO campaign with the aim of bettering the dental site’s ranking (and ultimately have more patients) can be quite exciting albeit tinged with some anxiety.
PPC adverts can give a shot in the arm of your business or call regardless of its nature, including of course dental practice. The following are some of the benefits that a dentist enjoys when he chooses a Google Adwords PPC promotion platform.
- Payment is due when and only when someone clicks on the ad
Surely the most noteworthy benefit that the dentist takes advantage of when he goes for a marketing campaign via the Google Adwords platform is that he or she is required to make payment only after an individual has clicked on the listing. So, you exercise a considerable degree of control over your ad’s performance (and consequently where your money is going). This convenience is in marked contrast to the conventional mode of publicity campaigns (think offline approaches) where you invest an amount without having any idea as to how the classifieds will perform.
- You can set the spending limit as per your convenience
Adwords PPC platform provides you with the convenience of setting the amount you’d wish to pay as per your spending (financial) capability. Not only can you put a ceiling on the daily spending limit but also change the capping at any time you feel like. It’ll certainly take some time for your listings to deliver and become lucrative but the chances of the ad or ads turning money spinners are always more than offline or traditional canvassing means.
- You can rope in new clients by inserting a creative ad that is well-timed
You’d naturally like to attract as many new patients to your chamber as well as retain the existing ones that live or work close to where your clinic is located. The PPC systems of Google can help with the location-based targeting of your niche patient segment.
- Expect to see results of your PPC ad faster than organic searches
Traffic being driven to your site through organic SEO is significant but you can expect your PPC search strategy to deliver results at a faster pace.
- The benefits of PPC data can be extrapolated to other marketing platforms
If a keyword or set of keywords are delivering the goods via Adwords, then you can harness these keywords across other PPC mediums for driving an increased volume of traffic to your site.
