Our Naperville, IL PPC Management Services

The act of creating and optimizing Naperville paid advertising campaigns is known as PPC management. However, that is an incredibly simple explanation, so let's dig a little deeper.

A paid ads agency for Naperville often begins by getting to know your company and its business model before providing professional PPC management. You can use this information to determine the next steps, since paid advertising for a local business differs from paid advertising for an ecommerce store.

For example, local Naperville service providers are often only interested in qualified leads. Through paid advertising, traffic can be driven to an optimized landing page or sales funnel. If those digital assets don't yet exist, or need substantial improvement, then you could start with Google Local Service Ads or Facebook Lead Forms.

Alternatively, ecommerce brands are most often interested in online sales. This can be accomplished through paid advertising that drives traffic to an optimized product page or category page. You might even want to include Google Shopping Campaigns in some cases. Our sales funnels have also helped us to sell subscriptions, products, and services.

To optimize and scale Naperville PPC, it's important to understand what metrics will be used. To maximize the value of paid advertising, most Naperville agencies implement email collection strategies through squeeze pages or lead magnets. 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.

To be successful with paid advertising, your Naperville business should utilize multiple advertising strategies and marketing tools. Some of the best paid advertising services in Naperville include:

  • Get traffic from search engines, social networks, and third-party websites to your digital assets (websites, sales funnels, etc).
  • Make money online or through qualified leads for your Naperville business.
  • Better understand ad attribution through the integration of third-party attribution software.
  • Provide social proof with case studies, white papers, video testimonials, etc.
  • Build and nurture relationships through user generated content, story creation, and email address collection.
  • Test ad creatives across various ad placements and between different media formats.

In addition to managing Naperville-area PPC campaigns, our team also offers Aurora, Bloomington, Chicago, Decatur, Elgin, Joliet, Palatine, Peoria, Rockford, Schaumburg, Skokie, and Springfield small businesses and large corporations a professional PPC management service.

How Paid Advertising Helps Naperville, IL Businesses

The most obvious benefit of Naperville paid advertising is the near instant increase in traffic it provides.

The quality of your ads, landing pages, and business model will determine whether or not that traffic increase results in higher conversions.

If you are interested in running paid advertising in Naperville, we recommend that you start slowly.

A working sales funnel, realistic goals, and the ability to gather actionable data are essential before you invest in paid advertising or scale your existing ad campaigns.

If you run into trouble getting the conversions you were expecting, don't blame Facebook or Google. In many cases, the problem lies in the ad creative, campaign settings, or sales process.

When everything comes together, paid advertising can be an invaluable addition to the digital marketing strategy of your Naperville company. Just keep in mind increased traffic doesn't always result in more conversions!

Quick Wins for Your Campaigns

How We Manage Naperville, IL Paid Ads

We are a team of paid advertising specialists with extensive knowledge in the latest PPC trends for Naperville local businesses. Drive traffic and conversions to your Naperville digital assets with our experience across dozens of industries.

Keyword Research

Keyword research in PPC is mostly used for Google Ads and Bing Ads search network campaigns. After all, search ads only show up based on what is searched on Google or Bing.

If you are looking for a roofing company in Naperville, you might search "Naperville Roofer" on Google. As a paid ads manager for that Naperville roofing company, targeting that exact phrase wouldn't require in-depth keyword research.

However, what if that exact match keyword wasn't producing enough search volume and the Naperville roofing company needed to increase their advertising reach? The solution would require keyword research.

After discussing options, the next step might involve the paid ads manager talking with the Naperville roofing company what services they want to target more often and where. A broader keyword targeting strategy than exact matches might also be necessary.

Suppose the Illinois PPC manager discovers that there is a high traffic volume for "Warrenville, IL roofers" or even "Naperville roof repair." First phrase targets a location near Naperville, which may still be in the service area of the Naperville roofing company. If the repair work is extensive, the second phrase might result in a more lucrative roof replacement project.

You can also benefit from keyword research when building out negative keyword lists. You can use these to prevent your paid ads from showing in search queries that you know won't convert.

A person looking for "free roof repair work" or "how to advertise to roofing companies" is unlikely to buy a roof replacement. Your paid ads may appear if you use broad keyword targeting without negative keywords such as "free" or "advertise".

As you can see, no matter how obvious your keyword research needs might be at the start of building out your campaign, they become more complicated as you begin to scale your ads and reduce wasted ad spend.

Audience Research

When you hear audience research talked about in Naperville paid advertising campaigns, it is often within the scope of scaling social media ads on Facebook and Instagram. There are options within Google Ads and Bing Ads for audience targeting as well though.

Let's go over a little history on audience research and targeting within the Facebook Ads platform.

Naperville paid advertising managers used Facebook's custom audiences extensively in the past. In fact, one of Facebook Ads' most attractive features was the ability to collect data on users, which advertisers in Naperville eagerly took advantage of.

A number of factors, including data privacy and machine learning, have had an impact on custom audiences over time.

Apple's iOS 14.5 update included a pop-up message that let users opt out of personalized ad tracking. As a result, Facebook had difficulty tracking mobile device behavior. In fact, it even affected the accuracy of ad attribution reporting.

Following that, machine learning algorithms greatly reduced the need for custom audiences and lookalike audiences for most Naperville advertising agencies. By choosing your own interest-based targeting, you tend to do more harm than good because their algorithm often understands your ideal audience better than you do.

In spite of the fact that many Naperville paid ads agencies still rely on custom audiences, it is clear that the trend is shifting toward broad targeting. You can see it in every update within Facebook Ads Manager as they slowly remove interest-based targeting options, or push for "Advantage Detailed Targeting."

This blog article from Social Media Examiner does a good job of talking about recent changes to audience targeting.

This isn't to say audience research and targeting is going away. There will always be targeting options that can be manipulated within Naperville ad campaigns to squeeze a little extra performance.

Landing Page Optimization

It is important to focus on a high quality landing page when running paid advertisements in Naperville.

We begin by examining the landing pages on any paid advertising campaign in Naperville to make sure they follow best practices. Our review takes into account the following factors:

  • Does the headline focus on benefits?
  • Do you have any images above the fold?
  • Is the content written in a compelling manner?
  • Do I have immediate access to a lead form?
  • What is the visibility of the call to action?
  • How quickly does the page load?
  • Is there social proof?
  • Can I 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 Naperville paid advertising until you have a landing page that follows best practices!

Ideally, you should never consider your landing page to be finished. For continuous improvement, run A/B testing every few months.

Including a Sales Funnel

Rather than a landing page, you might want to consider building out a sales funnel. In order to generate leads, build email audiences, and even make online purchases, we rely on sales funnels.

We have a client who promotes an online fitness challenge that you can even participate in from Naperville. While managing their digital marketing we built multiple sales funnels within Click Funnels. These are some of the funnels we made:

  • By using squeeze pages, we captured email addresses and raised awareness for the program.
  • Lead magnets provided health and fitness tips, webinars, and sneak peeks in exchange for email addresses.
  • We used application funnels to push people toward the idea of wanting to apply to participate in exclusive programs.
  • For the online program, we used sales letter funnels as the registration system.

There are many different types of funnels, so your Naperville 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. You can learn this type of work at home or at a technical school in Naperville after weeks of training. However, getting really good at funnels can take years of experience. Look for a PPC management firm like WebCitz to do the hard work for you!

Conversion Rate Optimization

Making informed advertising decisions requires a clear understanding of your conversion rate. Throughout Naperville, conversion rates vary widely between industries, products, and services. However, you can expect average conversion rates of 1-3%.

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

  1. You sell a $100 sweatshirt in Naperville on your website.
  2. You have a 1% conversion rate, meaning for every 100 Naperville 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 Naperville 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 Naperville 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 Naperville 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 Naperville, 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 Naperville.

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 Naperville 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 Naperville 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 Naperville 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 Naperville 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 Naperville 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.

Types of Paid Ads for Naperville, IL PPC Campaigns

There are numerous ways to run paid advertising for your Naperville business. Naperville has a variety of business industries that use paid ads. Let's take a look at some of the most common ones.

Local Ads within Naperville

If you have a business in Naperville, you can run local ads on almost any advertising platform. Depending on the nature of your local Naperville business, you may find better success in one platform versus another. You should try out every option available to see which suits you best. Let's talk about a few local advertising choices.

There are going to be two options from Google.

The first is to run traditional Google Ads, potentially using their newer campaign type of Performance Max. The Google algorithm finds the best combination of headlines, images, videos, and service locations to bring you local customers using this type of dynamic ad campaign. Performance Max campaigns are used frequently by accounting, legal, dental, and medical professionals in Naperville. Even local stores use this campaign type.

Google's second option for qualifying businesses is their Local Service Ads. As a pay-per-lead platform, Google Local Service Ads charges a flat fee per lead. Plumbers, electricians, roofers, and heating installers in Naperville often use Google Local Service Ads.

You can also use Facebook Ads to target people in your local Naperville area. The first step is to set up a campaign with ad sets restricted to Naperville as a city, or specific ZIP codes around Naperville. For all types of Naperville businesses, we often use Facebook Ads.

Social Ads for Naperville Websites

Pretty much any online ad you see on a social network site is going to qualify as a social media ad.

It's important to keep the ad creatives fresh when running social ads. If you don't rotate out ad creatives every few weeks your campaign performance will slowly decrease. For higher spending ad campaigns, you might need to look at weekly ad creative changes.

The best part of social ads is you can target audiences that have never thought of your product or service, or perhaps just aren't thinking about it now. It's quite the opposite when you run search ads since you only get to show them when someone searches for what you offer in Naperville.

However, this benefit can also be a curse, since conversion rates are typically lower when people aren't closer to making an immediate purchase.

Search Ads within Naperville

You should invest in search advertising if you know people are searching online for your products or services.

Some people refer to this as Naperville Search Engine Marketing, or SEM. This is just a different way of explaining search ads, which are advertisements placed on the search results page of a search engine.

You might consider copying your Google Ads campaigns over to the Bing Ads platform if you've had success with Google Ads. According to a StatCounter study from October 2022, about 3.57% of online users use Bing as their primary search engine.

Display Ads in Naperville

You'll find display ads on all kinds of message boards, chat rooms, game lounges, news websites (sometimes even local Naperville news stations), gossip websites, and more.

Google Ads and Bing Ads commonly offer these campaign types.

To get started with display ads, you just need a set of ad creatives in different image 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 Naperville Businesses

There is a good chance that not everyone will convert during their first experience with your Naperville website, landing page, or sales funnel.

To help people return to your site after they've thought through various options, retargeting ads are almost always recommended.

You can run retargeting ads on Google Ads, Bing Ads, Facebook Ads, and many other platforms.

Shopping Ads for Naperville Ecommerce Stores

Google Shopping Campaigns popularized this type of search ad.

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 Naperville storefront.

By using these tools, you can provide Google Ads with accurate product data, including title, SKU, image, price, and availability. Then, your products will be displayed at the top of search results based on the right types of search queries.

Video Ads within Naperville

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

Using YouTube Ads is as simple as setting up a video ad 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!

You should definitely consider incorporating video ads into your paid advertising campaigns in Naperville if you have the budget to do so.
