Search Engine Marketing (SEM): Everything There Is To Learn About It
Search engine marketing, popularly known by its acronym, SEM, has emerged as one of, if not the most effective way to grow your business in an era of high competition. There are millions of businesses and all of them are vying to sell their products and services to the same people. As such, it is critical that businesses have an online presence; search engine marketing is very effective in helping businesses create an online presence and promote your business and product.
This guide will explore what search engine marketing, delving into the basics of this form of marketing, and providing you with strategies and tips you can use to implement SEM in the right manner.
SEM – The Overview
Search engine marketing is a marketing form whereby marketers use search engine paid ads to advertise their business and or products. In this form of marketing, advertisers will bid for keywords that users are likely to use in search engines (Google, Bing, etc.) when searching for a certain product or service. When you win the bid, your ads are placed on top of the natural search results in the search engine results pages (SERPs).
There are several formats of the pay-per-click ads used. The vast majority of the ads are the text-based ads. The other common ads format is the product listing ads, also known as shopping ads. These are more product-based ads and more visual. As such, they allow search engine users to glance at the product and learn everything about the product in one go. Therefore, they will contain pricing, review, and any other important information.
The main advantage of SEM is that it provides marketers the opportunity to be right in front of the motivated and serious customers at the precise point in their purchase experience they are looking to make a purchase. Effectively, SEM places marketers at the buying stage of the marketing funnel. There is no other marketing medium that places markets in front of such customers and clients. As such, SEM is a very effective and powerful means of growing a business.
SEM vs. SEO
SEM vs SEO: What Are The Differences?
In general terms, search engine marketing refers to using paid ads in search engines. In this form of marketing, the marketer bid on Google Ads for Google to show their ads in the SERPs.
Search engine optimization, better known as SEO is markedly different as you do not pay Google for any link placement on the SERPs. As such, you do not pay for clicks and the traffic. Instead, you earn your spot on the SERPs usually by creating the most relevant and effective content pertaining to the given keywords search.
For the most successful marketing campaign, businesses should opt to use both SEO and SEM. SEO is a powerful means of driving evergreen traffic right to the top of your marketing funnel. On the other hand, SEM is a very cost-effective means of tapping traffic that is at the bottom of the funnel. It is also very effective driving conversions.
