Let’s look at each one of them:
#1 – Paid Search Advertising
Paid search advertising is the top 4 results you see on Google when you enter a specific keyword. In this example, let’s say we are searching for “best property in kl” on Google.
This is what we get at the top of the search results:
These 4 search results are paid search advertising as you can see small “Ad” sign beside the website URL.
So each time when someone clicks on that search result and land on their website, Google will charge the person who runs this advertisement. This is why the model is called Pay Per Click.
As for how much does it cost, it depends on the competitiveness of the keyword you are advertising, the higher the competition, the more expensive the click would be.
With plenty of people searching on Google each day, using the paid search advertising model can help you land plenty of new customers.
#2 – Display Advertising
Moving onto display advertising. Display advertising are the banner ads you see on various websites.
These ads will often appear in the sidebar of a website. With display advertising, you can which website you want your ads to appear, which depends on how much budget you have.
#3 – Video Advertising
Video advertising is again another form of effective online advertising. You can have your videos appear in Youtube In-stream ads.
Youtube will charge you when people are watching more than 5 seconds of your video. If they click skip ad, you will not be charged.
By watching your video, the target audience has already expressed an interest in your products and services. Include a call to action at the end of the video and direct them to your website’s landing page.
We have discussed the various types of pay per click (PPC) advertising and how it helps to generate immediate traffic to your website.
Instead of trying all forms of advertising, we recommend starting with one form of PPC advertising first before moving onto the other types of advertising. Test the ads on both mobile and desktop and assess which device is performing the best. You can then allocate more budget to that device to give you a better ROI.
