									The Basics of Pay Per Click
Pay per click is a very popular online promotion strategy among
  serious marketers. It involves the investment of money and
  the returns can be massive if you know how to go through
  with the whole process.

A lot of online marketers seem to veer away from PPC due to the
   fact that you are putting money into the table.

They often argue that why should you pay for something that
  you can get for free? Well, as the often quoted saying goes,
  “To make some money, you have to spend some money.” PPC
  is not just about purchasing ads. It's about researching,
  testing, tracking and finding the right kinds of ads for your
  product, service or business.
Some points that you should always keep in mind
  about pay per click advertising:
• Test your ads first before you fully invest in them. For
  instance, you can test out a bunch of ads using a limited
  budget. What you need to do is track and measure the
  performances of these ads. When the testing period is over,
  you can then choose which types of ads you are going to
  invest in. Sometimes, PPC is a trial and error process
  especially if you are just starting out in using it.
• You should target keywords with your PPC ads. For instance, if
  you are creating an ad that aims to promote a women's shoes
  online store, then you need to make sure that the phrase
  “women's shoes” is present in your PPC ad.

• There are a lot of reasons why you should use keywords in
  your ads. The number one reason is that it will make sure that
  your ads are displayed in the right websites and blogs.
• Taking our example, with the right keywords, your ad will be
  displayed in websites and blogs about shoes. This is very
  helpful to your site as those people who will be visiting your
  site are targeted and more likely to purchase from you.

• Make use of the best PPC ad providers. Google Adwords is by
  far the best PPC ad provider today. It has a wide reach
  ensuring that your ads get to as many people as possible. If
  you want to get the most out of PPC advertising, you should
  start with Adwords.
Pay per click advertising is here to stay. It is after all the major
  source of income for the biggest search engines today. Google
  for instance generates majority of its earnings from pay per
  click ads.

Looking at it from the outside, PPC seems easy and simple

But you will learn soon enough once you start using it that
  there's much more than meets the eye.
Pay per click can be very complicated most especially if you are
  operating in a rather competitive niche wherein you have to
  be creative in order to outpace your competitors.

The points discussed above about the basics of pay per click
  advertising should point you on the right way as well as instill
  into you the right mindset towards approaching the
  advertising process.
