The Benefits of PPC Advertising for Fire Protection Companies
Visibility & Relevance
The two biggest benefits of PPC advertising are controlled visibility and relevance. Traditional advertising, which many fire protection companies continue to rely on, interrupts people that may or may not be interested or in the market for your fire protection services.
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 “commercial fire suppression in Maryland” needs and is interested in finding a fire protection company!
Highly Controllable & Manageable ROI
Search engine marketing (SEM) is comprised of pay per click (PPC) advertising and search engine optimization (SEO). Many fire protection companies make the mistake of favoring one strategy over the other. It is not uncommon for a business owner to hear from a friend that SEO is better than PPC and refrain from any further investigations of PPC advertising.
In reality, the fire protection 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
