As a kid who was fascinated with the magic store, it’s kind of surprising that I still don’t know how magicians do certain tricks. But it’s probably because as an adult, I’ve spent most of my time trying to master one magic ...
Whether you’re an independent realtor or work at a real estate agency, you can gain a competitive advantage if you have owned digital properties to drive your paid and social traffic to. Owned properties — like landing pages — provide you more control in real estate versus relying on popular listing sites where the journey isn’t always clear, you can’t customize your call to ...

Your ad promoting beard oil might have the best copy, images and offer — but it will never convert well if it’s shown primarily to a female audience. The ad would be irrelevant, and you would receive a relevance score which reflects this.

But with the rise of social, display and programmatic platforms, PPC marketing has expanded to involve more than search engines alone.
Getting a new client always starts innocently enough. Initial talks go well. Everyone’s on board. But then you get full account access and start digging deeper… True story: I once worked with a client who was spending tens of thousands each month on PPC. Yet they had zero conversion tracking. The phone rang, sure. But no one knew why.
Before digging into your or your client’s AdWords account, you might need to do some tidying up first. Image via Shutterstock. When PPC agency ParaCore started working with a niche inspection company, they realized pretty quickly that before they could start optimizing this client’s AdWords account, they needed to do some necessary housekeeping.
You’re designing a landing page for your Real Estate client, and you turn to “best practice” advice articles to help guide the way. But there’s a nagging voice at the back of your mind: Does this “best practice” advice apply indiscriminately to my industry? Does this author really know anything about my audience at all? “Best practices” become “better practices” when the ...
As a travel marketer or agency marketer servicing the travel industry, you have a tricky gig. You need to convince your prospects to spend thousands of dollars and precious vacation time. Meanwhile, your prospects are increasingly wary of the legitimacy of your offers (thanks a lot, Fyre Fest). Here’s to hoping your vacation is memorable, but not in a meme-worthy kind of way.
A good marketer is like a doomsday prepper (bear with me here…) Instead of preparing for a global cataclysm, learning about water storage and building bunkers, they’re constantly on the lookout for ways they can proof their marketing for, or get ahead of, inevitable and dramatic changes to the marketing landscape. Frequent and mysterious algorithm changes. New ad platform features.
You’re a product marketer and it’s five weeks away from a major launch. The office is buzzing with excitement and tensions are rising by the day. Your marketing team is busy prepping all the essential pieces in your marketing launch toolkit, from email communications to paid advertising to PR initiatives and beyond. But something’s missing.
Being a modern-day Paid Media Manager can make you feel a bit like Sisyphus. Your VP of Marketing has charged you with rolling a boulder uphill (continuously optimizing your AdWords campaigns even when you’ve reached your quarterly objectives). Image via Shutterstock. This becomes especially painful when you’re getting diminishing returns out of your optimization efforts.
When’s the last time you felt special? Go ahead… close your eyes and visualize the last time your boss called you out in a group to recognize your excellent performance. Or the last time your grandmother mailed you a special batch of your favorite cookies. Now, imagine being able to replicate that feeling for your audience with a marketing campaign.
You know that opening scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark? Just when Indy thinks he’s successfully Jones’d the Golden Idol, the ominous rumble of a booby trap sounds and he’s being chased through a tunnel by what I’d wager to be the world’s most famous celebrity boulder. I’d also wager that PPC marketers are somewhat familiar with this feeling.
If you create display ads for your job, you’re already well aware of how hard it is to get prospects to click. Unlike search ads, display ads aren’t typically served up to an audience who is actively on the hunt for something specific, so there’s even more pressure to stand out. Think about it: when was the last time you clicked on a display ad? On our quest to find out wha ...
The pay-per-click landscape has become so saturated that only the most analytical marketers are able to continuously turn a profit from their paid search, display and social campaigns. Data-driven marketers who are able to effectively manage PPC campaigns to a target cost per conversion (a.k.a. cost per lead) will continue to see campaigns with a predictable, repeatable profit margin.
