What is Massachusetts PPC Management?

PPC management consists of creating and optimizing paid advertisement campaigns in Massachusetts. However, that is an incredibly simple explanation, so let's dig a little deeper.

A paid ads agency for Massachusetts often begins by getting to know your company and its business model before providing professional PPC management. Since the way you approach paid advertising for a local Massachusetts business is much different than how you would for an ecommerce brand, this information helps determine the next steps.

Local service providers in Massachusetts, 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 currently exist or need a lot of revisions.

Alternatively, ecommerce brands are most often interested in online sales. Pay-per-click advertising can be used to drive traffic to an optimized product 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 Massachusetts PPC, it's important to understand what metrics will be used. To maximize the value of paid advertising, most Massachusetts agencies implement email collection strategies through squeeze pages or lead magnets. To better understand ad attribution and reporting, it is often worth integrating with Wicked Reports, Triple Whale, or Northbeam.

Your Massachusetts business should use a variety of advertising strategies and marketing tools to be successful with paid advertising. Some of the best paid advertising services in Massachusetts include:

  • Get traffic from search engines, social networks, and third-party websites to your digital assets (websites, sales funnels, etc).
  • Make your Massachusetts business more profitable by acquiring qualified leads or selling online.
  • Better understand ad attribution through the integration of third-party attribution software.
  • Present social proof through case studies, white papers, and video testimonials.
  • Build and nurture relationships through user generated content, story creation, and email address collection.
  • Place ad creatives across various ad placements and media formats to see which performs best.

Our PPC management agency is happy to provide Boston, Cambridge, Lawrence, Lowell, Medford, Plymouth, Springfield, and Worcester with professional paid advertising consulting services.

How Paid Advertising Helps Massachusetts Businesses

One of the most obvious benefits of Massachusetts paid advertising is the quick 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 Massachusetts, we recommend that you start slowly.

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

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.

The right combination of paid advertising and digital marketing strategy can greatly enhance your Massachusetts business's digital marketing strategy. Just keep in mind increased traffic doesn't always result in more conversions!

Types of Paid Ads for Massachusetts PPC Campaigns

In Massachusetts, there are many ways to run paid advertising. Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts

Local ads for your Massachusetts business can be run through nearly any advertising platform. You may find greater success on one platform over another depending on the nature of your local business in Massachusetts. It is important to try out every available option to see which works best for your needs. Now let's discuss some local advertising options.

There are going to be two options from Google.

In the first case, you can run traditional Google Ads, possibly using the newer Performance Max campaign type. 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 Massachusetts. 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. Home service contractors in Massachusetts, such as plumbers, electricians, roofers, and heating installers, frequently use Google Local Service Ads.

Facebook Ads can also be used to target people in Massachusetts. The first step is to set up a campaign with ad sets restricted to Massachusetts, or specific ZIP codes within Massachusetts. For all types of Massachusetts businesses, we often use Facebook Ads.

Social Ads throughout Massachusetts

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

Maintaining fresh ad creatives is key to social ads. If you don't rotate out ad creatives every few weeks your campaign performance will slowly decrease. It might be necessary to look at weekly ad creative changes for campaigns with higher spending.

One of the best things about social ads is that you can target audiences who aren't yet aware of your product or service. 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 Massachusetts.

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 throughout Massachusetts

You'll want to invest in search ads if you know people are looking online for the products you offer.

Some people refer to this as Massachusetts Search Engine Marketing, or SEM. An advertisement that appears on the search results page of a search engine is called a search ad.

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 for Massachusetts Businesses

Many different message boards, chat rooms, game lounges, news websites (even local Massachusetts news stations), gossip sites, and more run display advertisements.

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. Both ad platforms have algorithms that help you generate results from your ad spend if you have an understanding of your target audience.

Retargeting Ads in Massachusetts

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

Retargeting ads are almost always recommended to help bring people back to your website after they have weighed their options.

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

Shopping Ads for Massachusetts Ecommerce Stores

Google Shopping Campaigns popularized this type of search ad.

In order to get started with Google Shopping, you just need an e-commerce website, a product feed (CSV or TXT), a Google Merchant Center account, and a Google Ads account.

By using these tools, you can provide Google Ads with accurate product data, including 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 within Massachusetts

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.

Facebook Ads is required if you want to run video ads on Facebook or Instagram.

Video is an excellent ad creative in terms of conversion opportunities. It's not unusual for us to use video ads for product launches, custom services, personal introductions, and more!

Your Massachusetts paid advertising campaigns should definitely incorporate video creatives if you have the budget to support them.

Massachusetts PPC Management Services

Our team of paid advertising specialists is knowledgeable about the latest PPC trends in Massachusetts. Drive traffic and conversions to your Massachusetts digital assets with our experience across dozens of industries.

Keyword Research

In the context of paid advertising, keyword research largely relates to Google Ads and Bing Ads search campaigns. 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 Massachusetts might search "Massachusetts Roofer" on a search engine. It wouldn't be necessary to conduct extensive keyword research to target that exact phrase as the paid ads manager for that roofing company in Massachusetts.

However, what if that exact match keyword wasn't producing enough search volume and the Massachusetts roofing company needed to increase their advertising reach? Researching keywords would be necessary for the solution.

After discussing options, the next step might involve the paid ads manager talking with the Massachusetts 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 PPC manager discovers that there is a high traffic volume for "Massachusetts roofers" or even "Massachusetts roof repair." First phrase targets a plural version of the service professional within Massachusetts. In the second phrase, a slightly different service is being targeted, which might result in a more lucrative replacement project if extensive repairs need to be made.

Negative keyword lists can also benefit from keyword research. 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. They might see your paid ads if you use broad keyword targeting without any negative keywords like "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 Massachusetts paid advertising campaigns, it is often within the scope of scaling social media ads on Facebook and Instagram. Google Ads and Bing Ads also offer audience targeting options.

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

Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts eagerly took advantage of.

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

In the iOS 14.5 update, Apple included a pop-up message that allowed users to opt out of tracking for personalized ads. As a result, Facebook had difficulty tracking mobile device behavior. This 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 Massachusetts 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.

While there will still be plenty of Massachusetts paid ads agencies relying on custom audiences, it is clear the trend is moving toward broad targeting. Don't take our work for it though. If you've been involved in the creation of Facebook ads, you've probably noticed the removal of interest-based targeting options here and there. Maybe you've even seen changes to how "Advantage Detailed Targeting" is recommended during the setup process.

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. The targeting options within Massachusetts ad campaigns will likely always be manageable to boost performance.

Landing Page Creation & Optimization

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

Our first step when managing a paid advertising campaign in Massachusetts involves reviewing the landing pages for best practices. Our review takes into account the following factors:

  • Does the headline focus on benefits?
  • Do you have any images above the fold?
  • What is the quality of the content? Is it well written?
  • Do I have immediate access to a lead form?
  • Are the call to actions easily noticeable?
  • How quickly does the page load?
  • Is there social proof?
  • Can I load the page on a mobile device?

Quality landing pages are the result of many factors.

Until you have a landing page that follows best practices, don't spend money on Massachusetts paid advertising.

If you want to create an effective landing page, you should never consider it finished. You can refine your Massachusetts sales pitch by running A/B tests on the landing page every few months.

Including a Sales Funnel

You might consider building out one or more sales funnels instead of a landing page. 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 Massachusetts. We built multiple sales funnels within Click Funnels while managing their digital marketing. Here are some of the funnels we made:

  • To increase awareness and capture email addresses, we used squeeze pages.
  • We used lead magnets to provide people with healthy eating tips, fitness tips, webinars, and sneak peaks in exchange for an email address.
  • Using application funnels, we encouraged people to apply for exclusive programs.
  • As part of the online program, sales letter funnels were used as the registration system.

The types of funnels available to your Massachusetts business aren't limited to these. Keep in mind that these tools can be incredibly helpful for gauging interest in a product, building an email list, and selling online.

Take your time if you decide to implement a funnel. 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 Massachusetts. 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 Massachusetts.

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

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

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 Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts 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.
