Pay-per-click advertising is one of the most effective forms of advertising in the world today and businesses from brand new startups and mom-and-pop shops all the way up to Fortune 100 businesses rely on pay-per-click to drive revenue and grow their businesses. There are several kinds of pay-per-click advertising (PPC) including search engine marketing, social media advertising, retargeting, and display advertising. They all serve their own purpose, but today I am going to be specifically talking about search PPC.
The holidays are right around the corner, which is about the time most people start thinking about charity, donations, and gift-giving. However, for nonprofit organizations, attracting public attention to sustain their cause is a consistent process throughout the entire year. During the seasons when donating and volunteering are not necessarily top of mind, it’s essential for charities to have a robust marketing plan. But, like most good things, marketing costs money. This is where Google Ad Grants comes to the rescue.
If you have a website, then chances are you want to be found online with a simple Google search. Or perhaps you have a pay-per-click campaign and you want your ads to be shown over a competitor's. Either way, you'll need to know which keywords to target in order to optimize your organic search results or ad campaign.
Social media is a great resource for all businesses because it allows them to not only get their messaging directly in front of their target market, but they're also able to engage with prospects and get immediate feedback. However, in today's social media landscape, a business page's organic posts are often overlooked or ignored due to the sheer amount of over saturation in a person's newsfeed.
That being said, if you want to use social media posts as a catalyst for business growth, it's important to understand the differences between organic and boosted posts.
