Post on 15-Apr-2017
Include a clear, specific call to action.
No learn more. No For more information Make your offer specific and tangible. Information offers (white papers, ebooks, information kits) often work best for PPC because they appeal to prospects across a broad segment of the selling cycle.TIP 01
Sell the offer.
Once youve decided on the right offer, sell it. Remember, its not the company youre selling, or the product, its that white paper or video or webinar the prospect gets when he or she fills out the form. If the offer is a video, show screen shots. If its a white paper, include excerpts, Amazon-type page previews, even reader reviews. The more detail, the better.TIP 02
Write a headline that reflects the ad copy.
Effective PPC campaigns start with effective, action-oriented ad copy thats relevant to the search term. They end with an engaging, easy to navigate landing page thats relevant to the ad copy. The goal is one seamless user experience in which every step validates and rewards the prospects information needs. Avoid disconnects by keeping your message consistent.TIP 03
Keep the registration form short, and above the fold.
If you have a robust, systematic lead nurturing program in place (of course you do) theres no need to capture every morsel of information from the prospect at first touch. Every required field you add to your registration form lowers your conversion rate accordingly. Ask for the minimum information possible, and keep the form high on the page where the reader can see it (and act) immediately.TIP 04
Dont skimp on selling copy.
PPC landing pages are different in this respect from say, an email landing page, because the reader barely knows anything yet about your company or the offer. Be sure to include sufficient selling copy to a) adequately sell the offer, b) address any anticipated concerns or objections, and c) help ensure a high quality score by offering what Google calls relevant and original content i.e. content related to the offer in the ad.TIP 05
