The Benefits of PPC Advertising for Electical Companies
Visibility & Revelance
The two biggest benefits of PPC advertising are controlled visibility and relevance. Traditional advertising, which many electrical companies continue to rely on, interrupts people that may or may not be interested or in the market for your product / service. And most people despise traditional advertising – they’ll pay for things that are otherwise free – like the radio or TV – just to avoid commercials. Online marketing strategies like pay per click advertising, only puts your message or ad in front of people actively interested in it or ready to make a buying decision. The odds are extremely high that someone searching for a “residential electrical companies in North Carolina” needs and is interested in finding an electrician!
Highly Controllable & Manageable ROI
Search engine marketing (SEM) is comprised of pay per click (PPC) advertising and search engine optimization (SEO). Many electrical companies make the mistake of favoring one strategy over the other. It is not uncommon for a contractor to hear from a friend that SEO is better than PPC and refrain from any further investigations of PPC advertising. Blue Corona is one of the top SEO companies for electriccal contractors in the country and we can say, without question, that the residential electrical companies having the most success marketing their businesses online use both strategies.
Pay per click advertising offers several advantages over SEO:
PPC advertising offers (near) immediate results; SEO can take weeks or months to start working
PPC advertising is nearly 100% controllable; no SEO company can promise you a certain ranking
The most accurate keyword tool (data that can be used for an SEO campaign) is a ‘live’ PPC campaign
The return on investment (ROI) from PPC advertising can be far more easily controlled than an SEO campaign
How Blue Corona Helps Electrical Companies with PPC
For all pay per click (PPC) advertising’s advantages, there are some potential drawbacks. Extra time is not something many electrical companies have. PPC platforms like Google AdWords and Microsoft’s Ad Center are fairly complex (and this is being polite). While it is true that many electrical contractors generate awesome profits via their pay per click advertising campaigns, inexperienced newcomers can (and often do) waste thousands of dollars.
Blue Corona has a proven pay per click setup and managementsystem specifically designed for electrical companies.
Unlike other pay per click companies, Blue Corona started as a measurement and ad tracking company. Some of you are probably saying, “so what?” Well, better data equals better results – guaranteed! Our PPC management team has tools and technologies our competitors don’t. This provides us with never-before-seen insights into your account performance.
For example, wouldn’t it be nice to know which keywords generate the best phone leads? Is it worth it to bid on “home theater wiring” or would you get a greater return on investment sticking with “electrical contractors for homes”? We track that and adjust your account settings to emphasize the keywords that produce the best results!
