Research shows that 77% of Americans shop online (based on an article from Selz). But, before your customers buy something, they perform online searches. This is where you benefit from Google ads. Google search ads empower you by reaching your potential customers while they’re searching for a certain keyword related to your business.
So, let’s say you run a print shop store in Los Angeles. Your goal is to show up on Google search when someone types “print shop in LA.” You can pay Google to show your website in the top three results every time someone searches for these keywords. This may sound simple, but it requires a lot of attention to detail and optimization – the competition on Google is relentless, and Google ranks these ads based on a complex algorithm.
Most if not all digital marketing agencies have digital advertising experts specialized in Google advertising. The digital marketing agency manages your campaign(s) in order to get the best return of your money. Furthermore, the world of Google ads doesn’t end with search ads. You can also take advantage of display ads, video, YouTube, and shop ads that are also a part of the Google network. Managing all of these campaigns at the same time can be overwhelming, so having an agency do that for you might be the best idea.
If you run an online business, having a well-designed website with clear information structure should take precedence. Digital marketing agencies typically have a team of programmers and UX designers with extensive website portfolios. The agency can develop or redesign your website to meet industry standards and provide your visitors with the best online experience.
Although, you may have a new website that doesn’t require changes, the digital marketing agency could go through it and give you some pointers. You’d be surprised how quickly a website can grow old.
Content Marketing and SEO
Some agencies offer content writing as an additional service. What this means is you can hire an agency to optimize your blog, write whitepapers, e-books, articles, and web content. Most agencies optimize your content to meet SEO standards, so your articles can show up on Google organic searches, without spending a dime on ads.
This could be a good option if you want to position yourself as an industry expert. Well-written, useful articles exude professionalism.
