Our Sandy, UT PPC Management Services

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

In order to provide professional PPC management, a paid ads agency for Sandy should get to know your company and its goals. Since the way you approach paid advertising for a local Sandy business is much different than how you would for an ecommerce brand, this information helps determine the next steps.

Local service providers in Sandy, for instance, are often only interested in good leads. In order to accomplish this, paid advertising can drive traffic to a landing page or sales funnel that is optimized. Start with Google Local Service Ads or Facebook Lead Forms if those digital assets don't currently exist or need a lot of revisions.

In contrast, ecommerce brands are most likely to be 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 team has even used sales funnels to help sell products and subscriptions.

To optimize and scale Sandy PPC, it's important to understand what metrics will be used. To maximize the value of paid advertising, most Sandy 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.

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

  • Get traffic from search engines, social networks, and third-party websites to your digital assets (websites, sales funnels, etc).
  • Increase revenue for your Sandy business through qualified leads or online sales.
  • Integrate third-party attribution tools to better understand ad attribution.
  • Provide social proof with case studies, white papers, video testimonials, etc.
  • Engage users in story creation, email collection, and user generated content.
  • Place ad creatives across various ad placements and media formats to see which performs best.

In addition to managing Sandy-area PPC campaigns, our team also offers Draper, Ogden, Orem, Provo, Salt Lake City, and West Jordan small businesses and large corporations a professional PPC management service.

How Paid Advertising Helps Sandy, UT Businesses

One of the most obvious benefits of Sandy 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.

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

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. It is usually the creatives, campaign settings, or sales process that is the problem.

The right combination of paid advertising and digital marketing strategy can greatly enhance your Sandy business's digital marketing strategy. It's important to keep in mind that increased traffic does not always translate into more conversions.

How We Manage Sandy, UT Paid Ads

Our team of paid advertising specialists is knowledgeable about the latest PPC trends in Sandy. Drive traffic and conversions to your Sandy 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.

A search for "Sandy Roofer" on a search engine, for example, might lead someone to a roofing company in Sandy. 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 Sandy.

However, what if the exact match keyword isn't generating enough search volume and the Sandy roofing company needs to expand their advertising reach? The solution would require keyword research.

After discussing options, the next step might involve the paid ads manager talking with the Sandy roofing company what services they want to target more often and where. There may also be a need to broaden the keyword targeting.

Suppose the Utah PPC manager discovers that there is a high traffic volume for "Draper, UT roofers" or even "Sandy roof repair." First phrase targets a location near Sandy, which may still be in the service area of the Sandy roofing company. 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.

A person looking for "free roof repair work" or "how to advertise to roofing companies" is unlikely to buy a roof replacement. However, they might see your paid ads if you are using broad keyword targeting without any negative keywords like "free" or "advertise".

You can see that as you scale your ads and reduce wasted ad spend, the needs for keyword research become more complex.

Audience Research

Audience research is often mentioned as part of scaling social media ads on Facebook and Instagram in Sandy paid advertising campaigns. Google Ads and Bing Ads also offer audience targeting options.

Let's take a look at audience research and targeting within Facebook Ads.

Sandy 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 Sandy eagerly took advantage of.

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. The change negatively affected Facebook's ability to track user behavior across Sandy and beyond. This even affected the accuracy of ad attribution reporting.

For most Sandy advertising agencies, machine learning algorithms greatly reduced the need for custom audiences and lookalike audiences. 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.

Though there will still be plenty of Sandy paid ads agencies using 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.

Interested in another take on audience targeting? Social Media Examiner's blog article does a good job of explaining recent changes.

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

Landing Page Creation & Optimization

An important factor in the success of your Sandy paid advertising campaign is the landing page.

We begin by examining the landing pages on any paid advertising campaign in Sandy to make sure they follow best practices. In this review, we consider the following factors and more:

  • Does the headline focus on benefits?
  • Is there an image above the fold?
  • Does the content engage the reader?
  • Do I have immediate access to a lead form?
  • 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 Sandy 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 Sandy 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 Sandy. 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 Sandy 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 Sandy. 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 Sandy.

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

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

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 Sandy 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 Sandy 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 Sandy 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 Sandy 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 Sandy 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 Sandy, UT PPC Campaigns

In Sandy, there are many ways to run paid advertising. Sandy has a variety of business industries that use paid ads. Let's take a look at some of the most common ones.

Local Ads in Sandy

Local ads for your Sandy 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 Sandy business. To find out which option works best for you, you should try all of the options available. Now let's discuss some local advertising options.

Google is going to offer two options.

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. Sandy professionals such as accountants, lawyers, dentists, and physicians frequently use Performance Max campaigns.

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 Sandy often use Google Local Service Ads.

You can also target people in your local Sandy 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 specific ZIP codes in Sandy. For all types of Sandy businesses, we often use Facebook Ads.

Social Ads for Sandy Businesses

Almost all online ads you see on social networks qualify as social media ads.

It's important to keep the ad creatives fresh when running social ads. The performance of your campaign will gradually decline if you do not rotate your ad creatives every couple of weeks. It might be necessary to look at weekly ad creative changes for campaigns with higher spending.

Using social ads allows you to reach audiences who have never thought of your product or service, or aren't thinking about it right 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 Sandy.

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 Sandy

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

In some circles, this is referred to as Sandy Search Engine Marketing, or SEM. An advertisement that appears on the search results page of a search engine is called a search ad.

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

Display Ads throughout Sandy

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

Bing Ads and Google Ads both offer these.

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 in Sandy

Your Sandy website, landing page, or sales funnel won't convert everyone on the first visit.

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

Almost any ad platform can be used for retargeting ads.

Shopping Ads for Sandy Ecommerce Stores

It was Google Shopping Campaigns that popularized this form of search advertising.

If you want to promote your Sandy storefront through Google Shopping, you'll need an ecommerce website, a product feed (CSV or TXT), and a Google Merchant Center 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 for Sandy 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 Sandy paid advertising campaigns.

WebCitz helped the Oshkosh Area Humane Society with our new website and they were great to work with. Responsive, professional and affordable. I think the biggest perk for us was having someone local we could talk to for assistance instead of long wait times. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking to start up or revamp their website.
