I’ve headed up a number of marketing teams in my time. Recently I’ve been thinking about what it takes to be a CMO. The answer, I realise, is so much more than Head of Marketing or even Marketing Director. Read More
If you always start with the same foundations you’re never going to build something that’s much bigger than you have before. Something we should all be conscious of in marketing is that if we try to copy what our competitors have already done, we risk failing to realize the potential of our ambitions. Read More
Most business people will understand the difference between paid for listings and organic listings on Google and most of them will be determined to appear highly in the organic listings as they generally percieve this (often erroneously) to be the cheapest way to get online traffic. Read More
On Grow Traffic I very often write about what it’s like being a freelance seo consultant but as a search marketer (as well as an online marketer) I have a much broader understanding of the scope of internet marketing as a whole and I sometimes don’t shout enough about the amount of PPC management I’ve done in my time, including managing several campaigns with budgets in excess of £80k a month.

We’ve all got used to the idea that we can find out exactly how people found our sites through the use of Google Analytics and other packages but Google has recently dropped a bit of a bombshell. Ostensibly for security reasons, Google will no longer be providing the search details of anyone that is logged in and has search and then found your website.
Whenever I explain to people what I do and my methodology, one of the things I’m at pains to say is that I’m a marketer that focuses on return on investment.

When I first meet with a client to discuss Pay Per Click, after all the excitement is over I have to have the conversation of how much, it generally goes like this:
Me: What kind of budget do you have?
Clients: Well how much do you think we should spend?

Pay per click (PPC) advertising, is probably the best form of marketing currently available to businesses with a website.
Pay per click advertising is an innovative marketing method that only displays your advertisement when people search for your products or service. Meaning that your user is prequalified before they arrive on your website
What’s more, the results are almost immediate, unlike SEO strategies that can take months and sometimes even years to pay off.
Better still, you only pay for the clicks that deliver traffic to your site – so unlike historical marketing methods (such as display advertising), you don’t get charged for the number of times your ad will potentially be seen.
