A Piper Jaffray study* found Pay-Per-Click (PPC) search advertising to be the most cost-effective method of advertising, coming in at a fraction of the cost of traditional marketing such as direct mail, email, online banners, telemarketing or the yellow pages. Other reports show that Pay-Per-Click marketing now reaches more than 80% of Internet users**.
Top of the page ads are called “Sponsored Listings” (paid advertising). PPC ads appear in dozens of search engines including: Google, Bing, Yahoo! and more, making up more than 95% of all online searches. PPC Sponsored Listings are the most cost-effective way for doctors to be found by prospective patients searching the web. PPC ads can dramatically increase the effectiveness of your medical website and attract the type of NEW patients you desire.
Google AdWords and Yahoo! Search Marketing represent the two best Pay Per Click (PPC) advertising opportunities on the Internet today.
Google is the most popular PPC provider on the Internet and is a “must have”. There is no monthly minimum spending requirement and bids start at 5 cents. We know how to structure your ads to take advantage of Google’s Local Listings and work around their limitations. Ad spending not included.
Yahoo! Search Marketing is another major search engine with their own PPC product called Yahoo! Search Marketing. Yahoo! Search Marketing charges a monthly minimum of $20 and their ads start at 10 cents – still a bargain. We know how to create campaigns on Yahoo! Search Marketing that generate highly visible ads that draw in customers at low cost. Ad spending not included.
