Truth be told, I’ve never fancied myself a writer. I would classify myself as a reader--someone who enjoys reading fiction and non-fiction book, blogs, and stories. I’m not bad at writing, and I don’t dislike the thought of having to write a blog or any kind of content to be put on the internet, I just never thought of myself as a writer in the way I had perceived that title.

Of course, the answer is “it depends.” You'll need to evaluate your goals, budget, timeline, and a few other factors to ultimately decide. Think of it as trying to choose what type of car to buy. You have to take into consideration what kind of commuting you will be doing, how many people will be riding in your car, and of course, your budget. You certainly wouldn't buy a Toyota Prius if you're going to be driving on snow-covered, unpaved roads during winter hunting trips, or if you have more than three kids you need to drive around. The better bet would be to look at crossovers and SUVs.
As you take into consideration what your advertising needs, before making a decision, let’s quickly review what each paid advertising method allows you to do.
Display Advertising can be a powerful tactic to drive brand awareness for your company. With its ability to re-engage past customers and launch new products and services, it’s certainly come a long way. Out with those old neon signs, and in with the new digital ads.
First, an extremely brief history of how Google Shopping came to be:
Google Shopping debuted as Froogle, in 2002, as a product price comparison site that used the Google search algorithm and indexing to differentiate itself from other sites that offered the same service. In 2007, Froogle became Google Product Search and then changed names again in 2012 to finally became Google Shopping.
Wow, it’s been quite a year for businesses in every industry to keep up with all the changes in Google’s search algorithm. Instead of a single 2018 massive update from Google, it has been a constant barrage of changes throughout the entire year. Google has done an excellent job of keeping everyone on their toes.
Amazon, that online bookstore that started in 1994, is now a formidable player in the digital advertising world. How and when did this happen?
Using pay-per-click is a great way to support your organic search engine marketing efforts and focus on keywords and topics that might be harder to rank for due to competition or if you are trying to attract visitors to a specific offer or event. That being said, it can be downright frustrating to determine how much of your marketing budget you should commit to any specific PPC campaign, because unlike companies like Google, Amazon, or Facebook, chances are, you don't have unlimited funds.
What is the best way to set budgets for ad spend and allocate specific amounts for individual campaigns?
It's easier than you think.
When Google AdWords first launched in 2000 (they have since rebranded and are now known as Google Ads), the interface was simple and it didn't take much to start a campaign.
Oh, how times have changed.
In the almost 2 decades since the inception of Google Ads, Google has added multiple campaign types, keyword match types, and bidding strategies, and so much more to the mix that it can make your head spin. Now there are hundreds of possible combinations in which to build a campaign.
