The advertisers should lay optimum focus that the keyword which they have mentioned should be appropriate and relevant to the content or the product displayed in the ad. Any irrelevant keyword which can distract a user should be totally obliterated. This often generates the interest of the users and can be used to gain maximum visits to the campaigner’s website.

So to get maximum profits by your ads and PPC campaign, one should make sure that the keywords, ad copy, and the landing page are created in a sync. The concerned should get what exactly they want so that they are not targeted back to another website.

A landing page is created separately to give the customers a chance to contact the concerned service or information about the product. The page is designed in such a way that the person can get the entire information about the product or the service that the company is campaigning about. The pages should be designed in such a way that they can open on the desktop, laptops, iPad, and smartphones of each and every size. The design should not be fixed for all the platforms and should be designed as per the layout of the device.
- For maximum reach, adjust bids based on location, devices, day and time- The ad campaigner also has the opportunity to adjust the bids. They can choose when they want to run a campaign on the Search Engine, can even optimize the time and location. Sometimes, the concerned feel that a particular day and a stipulated amount of time can get them the highest views and bids, so they adjust the click according to that. They can also choose a time when they do not wish to show the ad on any device at all. They also have an option of customising them on different devices and reaching out for the options of showing them on the device and not on another.
- Creatively Optimize for Mobile Platforms- The landing pages should never have the same layout for all the devices. Every device has a different screen size and display screens. And the fact cannot be denied that people check their smartphones every 1 hour. So the makers should keep in mind that they design the landing page and the display ad as per the mobile platforms too. The content should be crisp and attractive and must also give the opportunity to the onlookers to access all the information they desire and that too easily.
- Use the strategy of re-marketing and segmented lists– You should always use this strategy to attract more customers. You can display the ads on different marketing platforms, can provide ads on the websites which get more traffic.
- Split test everything and never stop– One of the golden rules of getting maximum leads on the ads created is that one should never stop experimenting. Everything that has been done needs to be tested on the digital platform and new and creative ideas should be applied every now and then. The page should not be left static.
