The cost per click will vary depending on how high up in the search engine you choose to be and how competitive the bidding is. For example, real estate listings are highly competitive so cost more per click. We try to minimize the cost by using very specific keywords and phrases that are relevant to your website and that people are using to search for your products or services. Pay per click campaigns are usually through Google and Yahoo, the two most popular search engines.

Organic traffic is by far the best and cheapest method of getting customers to your website. Our websites all have search engine friendly (SEF) url's and are optimized for the search engines (SEO) using a number of techniques. We concentrate on Google, as that is the most popular and if you are pulling up on the first page for your main keywords, then you will be getting quality traffic. We also set up Google Analytics to track how your existing visitors get to your site and to monitor the effectiveness of campaigns on traffic.
Remember, it is not the quantity but the quality of your visitors that will make for a successful web presence.
Google is by far the most popular search engine. Their pay per click is known as Adwords. It involves choosing keywords & phrases, then writing small ads which are displayed when people search for your services. You set bids on each of your keywords and this determines your position. When an ad is clicked on, you can bring the user to a specific page of your website. The campaign requires monitoring and adjusting on a regular basis to improve your position, effectiveness and return on investment.
You can set a daily budget and specify times for when you want your ads to show. Once the daily budget is used up, the ads are suspended until the next day. This gives you control over how much you are spending on a campaign. Google Adwords can be set to show in US and in other specific countries of your choice like Germany and the UK. You can also localize the search area to a specific state or metropolitan area. We research appropriate keywords that target a specific audience so that you attract quality clicks.
