What is Quebec PPC Management?

The act of creating and optimizing Quebec paid advertising campaigns is known as PPC management. That is an incredibly simple explanation though, so let's dive a little deeper.

In order to provide professional PPC management, a paid ads agency for Quebec should get to know your company and its goals. 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.

Service providers in Quebec, for example, are often only looking for quality leads. This can be accomplished through paid advertising that drives traffic 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. Using paid advertising, you can drive traffic to a page optimized for products or categories. 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.

The next step in Quebec PPC management is understanding the metrics that will be used to optimize and scale. Most Quebec paid ads agencies will implement email collection strategies through squeeze pages or lead magnets to help increase the value of paid advertising. For ad budgets over $1,000/mo, it often makes sense to integrate with Wicked Reports, Triple Whale, or Northbeam to better understand ad attribution and reporting.

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

  • Promote your digital assets (websites, sales funnels, etc.) via search engines, social media channels, and third parties.
  • Increase revenue for your Quebec business through qualified leads or online sales.
  • Better understand ad attribution through the integration of third-party attribution software.
  • Showcase social proof through case studies, white papers, video testimonials, and other factors.
  • Engage users in story creation, email collection, and user generated content.
  • Test the effectiveness of different ad creatives across different media and ad placements.

Our PPC management agency is happy to provide Montréal, and Québec with professional paid advertising consulting services.

How Paid Advertising Helps Quebec Businesses

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

Whether a traffic increase results in higher conversions depends on your ads, landing pages, and business model.

Starting slowly is the first recommendation we give to Quebec businesses interested in paid advertising.

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're not getting conversions, don't blame Facebook or Google. The issue is often in the ad creatives, campaign settings, or sales process.

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

Types of Paid Ads for Quebec PPC Campaigns

There are numerous ways to run paid advertising for your Quebec business. Let's discuss some of the most common paid ads being run within various business industries in Quebec.

Local Ads in Quebec

If you have a business in Quebec, you can run local ads on almost any advertising platform. One platform may be more effective for your local business in Quebec than another. It is important to try out every available option to see which works best for your needs. Let's talk about a few local advertising choices.

There are going to be two options from Google.

As a first step, you can run traditional Google Adwords, possibly using their 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 Quebec. Even local stores use this campaign type.

The second option from Google, if you are in a qualifying business industry, is to check out their Local Service Ads. 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. We often use Google Local Service Ads for home services contractors in Quebec, like plumbers, electricians, roofers, and heating installers.

You can also target people in your local Quebec 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 Quebec. Local Facebook Ads are often used by Quebec businesses of all types.

Social Ads for Quebec Businesses

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

The trick to social ads is keeping the ad creatives fresh. The performance of your campaign will gradually decline if you do not rotate your ad creatives every couple of weeks. 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 Quebec 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 for Quebec Businesses

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

In some circles, this is referred to as Quebec 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've been running search ads on Google for a while and have been successful at it, we suggest considering copying the campaigns over to the Bing Ads platform. 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 Quebec Businesses

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

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

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 Quebec Businesses

Not everyone is going to convert during their first experience with your Quebec 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 Quebec 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 Quebec 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 Quebec 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 Quebec paid advertising campaigns.

Quebec PPC Management Services

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

Keyword Research

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

For example, a person looking for a roofing company in Quebec might search "Quebec Roofer" on a search engine. As a paid ads manager for that Quebec 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 Quebec roofing company needed to increase their advertising reach? In order to solve the problem, keyword research would be required.

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

For instance, the PPC manager might discover high search volume for "Quebec roofing companies" or even "Quebec roof repair." The first phrase is targeting a plural of the service in Quebec. The second phrase is targeting a slightly different service, which might result in a more lucrative roof replacement project if the repair work is extensive.

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.

An individual searching for "free roof repair services" or "when to advertise to roofers" is unlikely to buy a new roof. However, they might see your paid ads if you are using 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

Audience research is often mentioned as part of scaling social media ads on Facebook and Instagram in Quebec paid advertising campaigns. 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, Quebec 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 Quebec advertisers lined up to exploit.

As time went on, data privacy and machine learning both had an impact on custom audiences.

In the iOS 14.5 update, Apple included a pop-up message that allowed users to opt out of tracking for personalized ads. The change negatively affected Facebook's ability to track user behavior across Quebec and beyond. Even ad attribution reporting was affected.

Then came improvements to their machine learning algorithms, which greatly diminished the need for custom audiences and lookalike audiences for most Quebec ad agencies. 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 Quebec paid ads agencies relying on custom audiences, it is clear the trend is moving 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, if you'd like a second opinion.

This isn't to say audience research and targeting is going away. There will always be targeting options that can be manipulated within Quebec 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 Quebec paid advertising campaigns.

When we take on the management of a paid advertising campaign in Quebec, 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 Quebec 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 Quebec 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 Quebec. 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 Quebec 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 Quebec. 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 Quebec.

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

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

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 Quebec 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 Quebec 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 Quebec 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 Quebec 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 Quebec 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.
