What is Georgia PPC Management?

PPC management consists of creating and optimizing paid advertisement campaigns in Georgia. Despite that simple explanation, let's explore it further.

To provide professional PPC management, a paid ads agency for Georgia often starts by getting to know your company and its business model. This information helps determine the next steps, since the way you'd approach paid advertising for a local Georgia business is much different from how you'd handle it for an ecommerce brand.

Local service providers in Georgia, for instance, are often only interested in good leads. This can be accomplished through paid advertising that drives traffic to an optimized landing page or sales funnel. Start with Google Local Service Ads or Facebook Lead Forms if those digital assets don't yet exist or need to be substantially improved.

Alternatively, ecommerce brands tend to be interested in online sales. Using paid advertising, you can drive traffic to a page optimized for products or categories. In some cases, it might even make sense to include Google Shopping Campaigns. We've even utilized sales funnels to help sell products, subscriptions, and services.

Understanding the metrics that will be used to optimize and scale Georgia PPC is the next step. Most Georgia paid ads agencies will implement email collection strategies through squeeze pages or lead magnets to help increase the value of paid advertising. To better understand ad attribution and reporting, it makes sense to integrate with Wicked Reports, Triple Whale, or Northbeam. For that to make sense though, your ad spend should be over $1,000/month.

In order to be successful with paid advertising, your Georgia business needs to use multiple strategies and marketing tools. Pay-per-click campaigns in Georgia should include tactics like:

  • Drive traffic to your digital assets (websites, sales funnels, etc) from search engines, social media channels, and third-party websites.
  • Increase revenue for your Georgia business through qualified leads or online sales.
  • Utilize third-party attribution software to better understand ad attribution.
  • Showcase social proof through case studies, white papers, video testimonials, and other factors.
  • Collect email addresses, create user-generated content, and nurture relationships.
  • Test the effectiveness of different ad creatives across different media and ad placements.

Our PPC management agency is happy to provide Albany, Alpharetta, Athens, Atlanta, Augusta, Brookhaven, Columbus, Macon, Marietta, Roswell, Savannah, and Valdosta with professional paid advertising consulting services.

How Paid Advertising Helps Georgia Businesses

One of the most obvious benefits of Georgia paid advertising is the quick increase in traffic it provides.

It is entirely dependent on the quality of your ad creatives, landing pages, and business model whether or not traffic increases lead to conversions.

The first recommendation we offer to Georgia businesses interested in running paid advertising is to start slowly.

Before diving into paid advertising or scaling your ad campaigns, make sure you have realistic goals, a working sales funnel, and the ability to gather actionable data.

Don't blame Facebook or Google if you don't get conversions. The issue is often in the ad creatives, campaign settings, or sales process.

Georgia companies can benefit greatly from the addition of paid advertising to their digital marketing strategy strategy when everything comes together. Remember, more traffic doesn't always mean more conversions!

Types of Paid Ads for Georgia PPC Campaigns

In Georgia, there are many ways to run paid advertising. The following are some of Georgia's most common paid advertisements options.

Local Ads throughout Georgia

You can use nearly any advertising platform to run local ads for your Georgia business. You may find greater success on one platform over another depending on the nature of your local business in Georgia. It is important to try out every available option to see which works best for your needs. Here are a few options for local advertising.

From Google, you'll have two options.

As a first step, you can run traditional Google Adwords, possibly using their newer Performance Max campaign type. This is a very dynamic ad campaign type which utilizes multiple headlines, images, videos, and service locations to allow the Google algorithm to find the best combination of assets to bring you customers in Georgia. We often use Performance Max campaigns for professional services companies in and around Georgia, such as accountants, lawyers, dentists, and physicians.

Alternatively, if your business qualifies, Google offers a Local Service Ads option. The Google Local Service Ads offers a pay-per-lead model, which means you get charged a flat fee for each lead the platform provides you. Plumbers, electricians, roofers, and heating installers in Georgia often use Google Local Service Ads.

You can also target people in your local Georgia area using Facebook Ads. The process is a little simpler since it just requires setting up a campaign with ad sets with geographic restrictions to ZIP codes in Georgia. We often rely on local Facebook Ads for all types of Georgia business industries.

Social Ads for Georgia Businesses

A social media ad is pretty much any online advertisement you see on a social networking site.

The trick to social ads is keeping the ad creatives fresh. Without rotating ad creatives every few weeks, your campaign performance will slowly deteriorate. A weekly change in ad creative is often recommended for higher-spend ad campaigns.

One of the best things about social ads is that you can target audiences who aren't yet aware of your product or service. When running search ads, that is quite the opposite since your ads are only going to show when someone is actively looking for what your Georgia business offers.

That benefit can also be a curse though, since conversion rates are often lower when people aren't closer in the revenue funnel of making an immediate purchase.

Search Ads throughout Georgia

If you know people are looking online for the products or services you offer, you'll want to invest in search advertisements.

Some people refer to this as Georgia Search Engine Marketing, or SEM. There are different ways to explain search ads, which are advertisements displayed on search engines' search results pages.

If you have been running search ads on Google for a while and have been successful, consider copying your campaigns over to Bing Ads. As of an October 2022 study from StatCounter, about 3.57% of online users rely on Bing for their primary search engine.

Display Ads for Georgia Businesses

There are display ads on message boards, chat rooms, game lounges, news websites (sometimes even local Georgia news stations), gossip websites, and more.

These are commonly used within the Google Ads and Bing Ads platforms.

With display ads, you just need a set of ad creatives in different sizes. It also helps to have a general idea of your target audience, but both ad platforms have their own algorithms that help you produce results from your ad spend.

Retargeting Ads for Georgia Businesses

Not everyone is going to convert during their first experience with your Georgia website, landing page, or sales funnel.

It is almost always recommended to set up retargeting ads to help bring people back to your website after they've had time to think through different options.

You can run retargeting ads on any ad platform, too.

Shopping Ads for Georgia Ecommerce Companies

This type of search ad was popularized by Google Shopping Campaigns.

To get started with Google Shopping, you just need an ecommerce website, a product feed (CSV or TXT), a Google Merchant Center account, and a Google Ads account for your Georgia storefront.

With these tools in place, you'll be able to provide Google Ads an updated list of all of your accurate product data, including the title, SKU, image, price, and availability. From there, they will be able to find the right types of search queries to display your products at the top of the search results page.

Video Ads for Georgia Businesses

You can run video ads on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, and other social networking websites.

If you are interested in running YouTube Ads, you'll just need to set up a video ads campaign in Google Ads.

To run video ads in Facebook or Instagram, you'll need a working Facebook Ads account.

Both ad platforms offer excellent conversion opportunities with video ads. We frequently use video ads to showcase product launches, custom services, personal introductions, and more!

If you have the budget to support ad creatives in video format, definitely look to implement them into your Georgia paid advertising campaigns.

Georgia PPC Management Services

Our team of paid advertising specialists is knowledgeable about the latest PPC trends in Georgia. We have experience across dozens of business industries, so we can help you drive traffic and conversions to your Georgia digital assets.

Keyword Research

In the context of paid advertising, you'll find keyword research mostly relates to search network campaigns on the Google Ads and Bing Ads platforms. After all, search ads only appear based on what is searched on Google or Bing.

For example, a person looking for a roofing company in Georgia might search "Georgia Roofer" on a search engine. Targeting that exact phrase wouldn't require in-depth keyword research for that Georgia roofing company's paid ads manager.

What if, however, that exact match keyword wasn't producing enough search volume and the Georgia roofing company wanted to increase their traffic and conversions? In order to solve the problem, keyword research would be required.

The next steps might involve the paid ads manager discussing with the Georgia roofing company what types of services they want to target more often and within what geographic areas. It might also require some broadening of the keyword targeting.

As an example, the PPC manager might find that "Georgia roofing companies" and "Georgia roof repair" have high search volumes. The first phrase is targeting a plural of the service in Georgia. If the repair work is extensive, the second phrase might result in a more lucrative roof replacement project.

When building negative keyword lists, keyword research can also be beneficial. You can use them to prevent your paid ads from showing up in search queries that you know are not likely to result in a lead or sale.

For example, someone looking for "free roof repair companies" or "how to advertise to roofing contractors" isn't likely to purchase a roof replacement service. However, they might see your paid ads if you are using broad keyword targeting without any negative keywords like "free" or "advertise".

Even if your keyword research needs are obvious when you start building out your campaign, they become more complex as you scale your ads and reduce wasted ad spend.

Audience Research

In Georgia paid advertising campaigns, audience research is often discussed in the context of scaling social media ads. However, Bing Ads and Google Ads also allow audience targeting.

We'll review some audience research and targeting history within Facebook Ads.

In years past, Georgia paid advertising managers relied heavily on building out their own custom audiences within Facebook. After all, one of the most attractive features of the Facebook Ads platform was the data it collected on its users, which Georgia advertisers lined up to exploit.

The rise of data privacy and machine learning had a significant impact on custom audiences over time.

When Apple released its iOS 14.5 update, they included a pop up message that allowed users to easily opt out of personalized ad tracking. As a result, Facebook had difficulty tracking mobile device behavior. Even ad attribution reporting was affected.

For most Georgia advertising agencies, machine learning algorithms greatly reduced the need for custom audiences and lookalike audiences. Their algorithm has become so good at understanding your ideal audience that you typically do more harm than good by choosing your own interest-based targeting.

While there will still be plenty of Georgia paid ads agencies relying on custom audiences, it is clear the trend is moving toward broad targeting. You can see it for yourself. Every few months Facebook rolls out updates that gradually remove lesser-used interest-based targeting options. They even keep changing out "Advantage Detailed Targeting" is pushed in the ad set creation.

This blog article from Social Media Examiner does a good job of talking about recent changes to audience targeting, if you'd like a second opinion.

However, audience research and targeting aren't going away. There will always be targeting options that can be manipulated within Georgia ad campaigns to squeeze a little extra performance.

Landing Page Optimization

The quality of your landing page will be a big factor in the success of your Georgia paid advertising campaigns.

When we take on the management of a paid advertising campaign in Georgia, we start by looking over the landing pages to see if they follow best practices. Here are some of the factors we look for in this review:

  • Is there a benefit-focused headline?
  • Are there any images above the fold?
  • Is the content written in a compelling manner?
  • Am I able to find a lead form right away?
  • Are the call to actions easily noticeable?
  • Does the page load quickly?
  • Is there social proof?
  • Am I able to load the page on a mobile device?

There are so many factors that come into the design and development of a quality landing page.

Please, don't spend money on Georgia paid advertising until you have a landing page that follows best practices!

Ideally, you should never consider your landing page to be finished. Try running A/B testing every few months to continue refining your Georgia sales pitch.

Sales Funnel Development

As an alternative to a landing page, you might want to consider building out one or more sales funnels. We rely heavily on sales funnels for lead generation, email audience building, and even online purchases.

For example, we have a client that promotes an online fitness challenge that you could even join from Georgia. While managing their digital marketing we built multiple sales funnels within Click Funnels. Here are some of the funnels we made:

  • We used squeeze pages to help capture email addresses while building awareness for the program.
  • We used lead magnets to provide people with healthy eating tips, fitness tips, webinars, and sneak peaks in exchange for an email address.
  • We used application funnels to push people toward the idea of wanting to apply to participate in exclusive programs.
  • We used sales letter funnels to serve as the registration system for the online program.

There are many different types of funnels, so your Georgia business isn't limited to only these options. Just keep in mind these can be incredibly helpful for gauging interest in a product or service, building out an email subscriber base, and selling a product or service online.

If you do decide to implement a funnel, take your time at it. Doing this type of work yourself can take weeks of training, whether you learn it at home by yourself or at a technical school in Georgia. It can take years of experience to master funnels, however. You can save yourself some time by looking for a PPC management firm, like WebCitz, to handle the heavy lifting!

Conversion Rate Optimization

Having a clear understanding of your conversion rate is critical to making informed advertising decisions. The average conversion rate is between 1-3%, but that varies greatly between industries, products, and services throughout Georgia.

Let's run through a basic scenario to help illustrate the impact of conversion rates.

  1. You sell a $100 sweatshirt in Georgia on your website.
  2. You have a 1% conversion rate, meaning for every 100 Georgia residents that visit your website you sell 1 sweatshirt.
  3. You have a $0.50 average cost per click (CPC), meaning for each person in Georgia that visits your website you spend 50 cents.
  4. To sell 1 sweatshirt, you need 100 clicks from paid ads, which would cost you $50. This is known as your cost per acquisition (CPA).
  5. Your return on ad spend (ROAS) would be 2x, meaning for every dollar spent in paid ads you get two dollars in return.

For most Georgia businesses, this return on ad spend wouldn't be acceptable unless the margins were great.

To improve the situation, you hire a paid advertising agency to modify your campaign settings, ad creatives, and landing page experience.

Let's assume those improvements bring your conversion rate up from 1% to 2%. That means for every 100 visits to your website you now sell 2 sweatshirts. This is twice the return on ad spend! You might actually be profitable now selling those sweatshirts.

Understanding your conversion rate, and knowing how to improve it, can be crucial to the management of your Georgia paid advertising.

Ad Creation

This is potentially one of the most important aspects of a Facebook Ads account.

When you run Facebook Ads or Instagram Ads in Georgia, you are mostly targeting a cold audience that is more interested in quickly scrolling by advertisements in favor of seeing what their friends and family are up to online.

You have to develop an understanding of how to capture someone's attention in a split second.

To do this, you need build out amazing ad creatives that make someone stop for a second and say to themselves, "wait a second, what...?"

This doesn't happen by running the same ad creative over and over and over again. Even if it is a great ad, it will eventually become stale. You have to change things up frequently, even if you are just targeting people in Georgia.

If you don't change out your ad creatives and test new ideas, you'll suffer from what is called "ad fatigue." This is the state in which your target audience (in Georgia and beyond) has already seen your ad so many times that they instinctively scroll by it without ever interacting with your brand.

Don't be caught in this situation. You have to understand when to pause an ad because it isn't performing as well as it once did. You have to understand when to test new ideas, especially if you are emotionally attached to an ad that you spent a lot of time making.

This is one of the benefits of working with a PPC management company that helps Georgia businesses, since we are proponents of testing new ad creatives regularly.

Ad Attribution Consulting

Knowing your ad attribution is important. If you don't know what ad attribution is, it is the process of determining which advertisement resulted in the conversion you experienced on your Georgia website or funnel.

You might be suffering from ad attribution issues and not even know it.

Do you rely on Facebook Ads or Google Ads to tell you which campaigns, ad sets, and ads are performing the best?

If so, you are relying on incomplete data to form critical decisions about when to turn off or scale an ad.

For Georgia ecommerce businesses running on Shopify, we recommend you look at ad attribution companies like Triple Whale or Northbeam to get a much clearer picture of your ad attribution.

For Georgia content-based websites, or ecommerce websites in platforms other than Shopify, check out ad attribution companies like Wicked Reports or Hyros to get a better idea for how well each of your paid advertising campaigns are doing.
