2. Control your budget to maximize ROI
Another reasons why you should invest in Pay-per-click is the control you have to work on the ROI that fits your business model. As a business you will only pay each time a consumer clicks on one your ads therefore if they keyword, ad and landing page are all optimized for the targeted audience and they click that is a potential high quality cost that could go on to convert or become a brand ambassador. The more data the accounts build the more data you have to use in the optimization of the ROI figures.
