How to Capitalize On the Search Landscape

When it comes to traffic generation, the building block of any digital initiative, you need to be savvy in how you reach and engage the highest number of qualified visitors to your website. In terms of the search landscape, and for this purpose, specifically Google search results, searchers should be introduced to as many click-through opportunities as possible. The more “real estate” that your business owns on the first page of Google Search results, the better chance you have of gaining a new visitor.

Back to Basics: Create Killer AdWords Copy That Gets Attention

The most popular form of Pay-Per-Click (PPC) or Paid Search is Google AdWords. Carefully crafted AdWords can be a very cost-effective way of generating quality traffic to your website and boosting your sales. If you do it right, your business can attract a wealth of new prospects. But if you do it wrong, it is just another advertisement that doesn’t work.

If you think your business can’t take advantage of this online marketing opportunity, you might want to think again because this can be the perfect way to draw attention. Because it’s pay-per-click, you pay only if prospects click and visit your website. But, of course, you do want them to visit, so you have to create killer AdWords copy that will really get your prospect’s attention:

  1. The headline: This is the first thing that prospects will notice. Although it can contain no more than 25 characters, the headline must immediately grab their attention. You can’t use any punctuation except a question mark, and use of all capitals is not permitted. Try to put one of your keywords right up there in the headline because it will appear in bold and have more chance of motivating prospects to click-through to your website. If you don't use a keyword, remember to keep it relevant to entice prospects to click.
  2. Body copy: You have two descriptive lines to make your case for why this prospect should visit your website. Each of these rows can only have up to 35 characters so each word must be strong. Include at least one keyword and highlight what makes your company different. Promote any special offers or pricing. Use a strong call to action like “call today,” “order now,” “sign up,” or “get a quote” to let prospects know what they should do next.
  3. Display URL: AdWords lets you choose a brief but meaningful display URL, which can be no more than 35 characters. This may be different from your destination URL, which can be as long as 1024 characters. Make sure that the landing page you take prospects to matches what they saw in your ad.
