Paid search marketing provides hyper-local targeting capabilities, allowing advertisers to both serve ads in Google Maps and local 3-pack listings. What that means in English is that not only can you serve your community in real life, but you can become a go-to stop digitally.

  • Develop local PPC strategies that ensure efficient and effective budget allocation
  • Craft compelling, high-CTR search ads and high-converting landing pages
  • Leverage advanced features like location extensions, click-to-call, and re-marketing

Build Brand Awareness with Display PPC Advertising

Displays ads have been on the Internet since the beginning of time. That’s because they work — but only when done correctly. At Captivate, we know what correct means. Our targeted approach will put your business in front of the most likely people to click. Imagine a billboard advertising a certain brand of steak sauce on the corner next to the local steakhouse.

  • Identify the trends of potential customers browsing habits and cater display ads for their needs
  • Create trust with users based on advertising directly to what they need
  • Establish a wider brand awareness by spending money wisely on specific targets, rather than throwing a bunch of spaghetti at the wall and seeing what sticks

Atlanta PPC Agency FAQs

Why should I hire your Atlanta PPC Company over other providers?

When you work with our paid search agency, we put all of the cards on the table. There are no automated tricks, secret formulas, or proprietary software platforms. We will present you with a complete and honest PPC program that’s backed by proven strategies that work. Unlike some search marketing agencies that staff one PPC specialist to handle all accounts, at Captivate you leverage the expertise of multiple experts who each have specific skill sets in data and analytics, ad creative, PPC management, and account optimization.

I’m running Google Ads but not converting users. Can you help?

Yes, absolutely. One of our favorite things to do is audit Google Ads accounts in an effort to identify bottlenecks, pain points, and opportunities for improvement. Oftentimes we can discover major issues with an account in just a matter of minutes. Because both Google and Bing Ads are fickle platforms that make it easy for uneducated advertisers to burn through their budget, it’s not uncommon for accounts to fail in just the first few weeks after launch. We’re passionate in helping businesses turn things around to confidently justify the cost of PPC.

I already rank well in organic search. Why do I need paid search ads?

While the organic search results do get the most clicks, depending on the keyword and users device, the paid search ads can still receive 20-30% of the clicks in a given SERP. This can be more for product keywords or if Google Shopping ads are present. Look at this way — having a PPC ad multiplies the number of listings you can occupy in the search results, helping your site generate more in-market traffic. For branded keywords, there can be reputation management implications or other local businesses targeting your brand name. A site targeting its own brand keywords will often pay just pennies for those clicks, which is often well worth the expense – especially if it means taking ownership of the first few listings a user sees.

How much does it cost to run PPC ads on Google?

Advertisers can determine their daily budgets, so you can essentially spend as much as you’d like. However, it’s important to understand how much it will cost to bid on your target keywords. Google automatically appraises certain keyword themes based on the anticipated conversion value in which those keywords deliver. For lawyers in competitive legal markets like wrongful death, the cost per keyword could be a premium $30 per click. However, an online store selling shirts might only need to bid $0.30 for its target keywords. Conducting preliminary research and understanding the cost implications of certain keywords can help you understand how much budget you’ll want to allocate for paid search marketing.
