Thumbs up PPC Tips for Beginners

Just wanted to share some tips I advice some of my clients.

For PayPerClick campaigns, don't just rely on using top keywords for your PPC campaign - this is the reason why others are failing. Bidding on top keywords will yield you less as competition for these are stiff already. The technique here is opting for other long tail keywords that is more likely to yield specific results because specific searches on long tail keywords or phrases are the ones that usually convert. Those who employ such search are more likely to buy IMO.

PPC is a trial and error campaign for newbies. Always test the water before jumping in. Be cautious on how much you bid at first, weigh first what keywords convert in your niche after a test run so you will know what works and what doesn't. There are two ways of bidding - the agressive (high) and conservative (low). This will greatly depend on how much budget you are willing to put in.

You should also try out other PPC providers for more reach on your campaign and to test what PPC platforms works best for you.

What are your effective techniques for a better ROI on PPC? Share in guys!

Good tips, also new ppc advertisers should realize the importance of a good pulling ad. If your ad pulls well you will pay less for your clicks on adwords. Try a few different ads and see which produces the best results. A relevant landing page will also result in paying less for clicks and a better conversion rate.

I would suggest using long tail keywords only after your campaign is rolling and your converting clicks into dollars. I think with Adwords you should be looking at a minimum of 3 weeks to a month to get some good google analytics going before you start tweaking and don't forget always split test it'll save you bundles.

I always create my own sets of keywords even if they have less traffic as long as they are profitable. Also targeting the exact location gives a better chance of sales.
