Paid Google Ads
Paid Search and PPC Tactics
Turn Google searches into new website and storefront visitors for your business.
Google Ads (previously Google AdWords) is an online advertising platform following the Pay-Per-Click model. Advertisers display brief advertisements on the Google search results page and pay each time a consumer clicks on their link.
Google Ad campaign management can be time-consuming, especially if you’re not familiar with the best way to structure your campaign. Managing and bidding on keyword lists, setting negative keywords, creating optimized ad content, improving your Quality Scores, and building high-conversion landing pages to tie in with your campaign takes experience. MercDigital can manage your search and display ad campaigns from initial ad creation through to deployment, A/B tracking, and optimization.
Why Advertise on Google?
Google has become one of the world's most powerful and influential brands. Consumers have come to place a great amount of trust in Google when it comes to finding information and making purchase decisions. It is essential that businesses are equipped with the best possible Google ranks, ratings, and ad placements if they want to drive genuine traffic to their websites or local storefronts.
Getting on top, and staying on top, of Google’s search results page requires a comprehensive SEO strategy with fresh and relevant written content, on-going keyword analysis, and website optimization. The best way to improve your long-term organic search performance is through great on-page and off-page SEO – a fantastic website with well-structured links and a blog with content that is unique, relevant, and actionable. Unfortunatlely, organic SEO takes time.
Give your business a kickstart with a Paid Google Ads campaign. Ranking highly on Google Ads will get your brand noticed and bring new leads to your website and store.
The most powerful marketing campaigns include a combination of Search Engine Optimization, Social Media Marketing, and Paid Google Ads. Together, these three marketing strategies will boost awareness of your business, improve your reputation, and make it easy for potential customers to choose you over your competitors.

What Others Are Saying
Sales went through the roof with the new email marketing and review requests systems MercDigital put in place. Working with their reps was easy and reassuring. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to bring in more customers.
Our company hadn’t kept up with Facebook and social media. We had information to put online but no time or experience with how to market ourselves in that format. Getting blog posts written and help setting up our social media presence was exactly what we needed to reach audiences we were missing out on.
