Pay Per Click is short for PPC. One of the main benefits of PPC is that it is the quickest way of driving traffic and increasing your conversions. Unlike SEO, where it takes effort and time to generate meaningful traffic, PPC can get you results immediately. Our PPC experts use data-driven techniques to create targeted and scalable campaigns so that you get the maximum return on ad spend (ROAS). We will continuously monitor your ads and optimise each campaign to increase the ROI.

1. Research, Planning, Setup

This is the most essential step. We are all ears, and we want to find out more about your product and service. We research extensively to understand your business. We also look at your competitors' campaigns and who they are targeting. Then we do the keyword research, studying hundreds of keywords to inform your campaigns.

2. Campaign Creations & Ad Groups

Getting the structure right is an important step. Organising your campaigns and ad group logically helps to monitor the success of your ads. Setting up multiple ad groups within each campaign helps monitor keyword performance.

3. Ads

Now comes the creative part, writing the ad copy. We capture your audience's attention by writing attention-grabbing headlines. The copy needs to entice the customer to click through, and the landing page effective with a clear call to action.

4. Go Live, Optimisation & Reporting

Now we can set the ads live. We will make sure the campaign is maximising your budget. After a few weeks, we will start to see the data from each ad. We will then to analyse the data, and optimise each campaign. We will look at essential metrics such as CTRs and impression share and ensure the ads are getting the most ROI. At the end of each month, we will send you a report with the results.

Google Ads

The majority of the world's searches are with Google. This presents a huge opportunity to advertise your business to millions of people. We keep up to date with the latest PPC development, so we can apply them to your campaigns to maximize your ad spends.

Microsoft Ads

Microsoft Ads, formerly Bing Ads, is growing which has around 30% of the total search engine share. Clicks have a typically lower CPC and usually have lower competition due to Google being the go-to platform for PPC. So, Microsoft Ads still presents a fantastic opportunity to get in front of your audience.


Remarketing allows you to get in front of customers who are already interested in your products or services. So whether a customer visited a services page or added a product to the cart but didn't checkout, we can encourage the customers to come back to the site.

Google Shopping

Google Shopping is a great channel to promote products that are your e-commerce store. Customers can browse through your products using Google Shopping. This provides greater visibility so customers can buy your products on Google.
