Online Marketing and Advertising

Pay-for-click Advertising starting from as little as £50 per campaign

Pay-per-click (PPC) adverts are the adverts you see appear down the right-hand column and at the top of Google and Bing search pages. You can also see them on thousands of other sites in what is known as the “Display Network”, e.g major newspaper and information websites. Advertisers bid on certain keywords or key phrases for their advert. They are only charged if someone clicks on their advert. The cost per click is variable,but you set the maximum you are willing to pay for each click.

Where will your adverts appear

  • Adverts via the major search engines – Google and Bing/Yahoo
  • Adverts via Social Media – Facebook and Twitter
  • Retargeting – we show your adverts to people who have either visited your website or your page on Facebook.

What is Retargeting

Generally less than 3% of shoppers convert on the first visit to an online store. Retargeting brings back the other 97%. Retargeting works by keeping track of people who visit your site and displaying your retargeting ads to them as they visit other sites online.

How does retargeting work?

A piece of code on your website builds a list of people that visit your site by placing a retargeting “cookies” in their browser. This list is used to display retargeting adverts to your potential customers as they visit other sites.

Why is retargeting so effective

Retargeting generates greater online sales or enquiries by bringing back window shoppers or casual browsers to your website when they are ready to buy or find out more. Every time your customer sees your retargeting adverts, you gain more recognition with that potential buyer.

Retargeting Best Practices

Retargeting is most effective if you segment your visitors (e.g. people who looked at shoes vs jackets) and tailor the retargeting adverts shown to each group, or not retarget them at all (e.g. people who converted.)
The best performing retargeting adverts have a clear call-to-action.
Different products require different retargeting time windows. e.g. people shopping for insurance should be retargeted immediately; people shopping for luxury goods can be retargeted later.
