Pay Per Click Advertising (PPC)

Sunday we talk about business, and for me that means online business.  I was going to post something entirely different but then came across this article about Pay Per Click advertising on Google Adwords.  This is a concept that is really hard to get your head around, but if you want to make any money online and you want your online business to be successful, this is something you need to learn.

Google Adwords is probably the easiest and safest PPC network for a beginner.  It has so many controls built into it already so the new user doesn’t have to fear losing a lot of money.  You, the user, actually control what it will cost you to use the network.  You also have control over where your ad is placed.  You will only pay Google if someone you market to clicks on your ad and goes to your site, hence pay per click.

PPC is a useful advertising tool and should be in your business marketing arsenal; that said, it is a tool that you need to take a bit of time and learn how to use and Google makes that easy, too.

Google Adwords has instructions given in small bites that will help you understand the process and hopefully help you see the benefit of using PPC.    Please read this entire article at the source and get started learning a profitable way to market your business online.
