Advertising can be an extremely cost-effective way to grow your business, if it’s done well. After all, its very purpose is to let others know about who you are and what you do. The ultimate goal is to gain customers and increase revenue through attractive images, catchy slogans and hopefully, a quality product.
Whether you are a small business owner, Internet market, not-for-profit organization or large corporation, advertising is critical.
There are many types of advertising to choose from, and depending on your business and your product, some advertising outlets may be more beneficial than others. From television to newspapers, billboards and radio, advertising opportunities have historically run the gamut from small and inexpensive, to large and exponentially costly.
The Internet, in all of its worldwide reaching glory, is the perfect place to advertise for almost any business, as you have the best chance of reaching the most people. And what’s more, you can target your market through multiple tactics, including Search Engine Optimization (SEO), keywords, and simply choosing when and where to place your ads. Much like you would choose which magazine to run your advertisement in, you can often choose which websites your ad will appear on, or which directories you will be listed in.
AdWord & AdSense
- Google AdWords for those looking to create ads/advertise
- Google AdSense for those looking to include targeted ads on their website(s) in order to earn money
The purpose of this report is to explore the benefits of AdSense and how you can not only earn a profit from using it, but how to make the most out of your AdSense account.
Google AdSense takes internet marketing to the next level. It is a helpful tool that allows website owners to select what types of ads are relevant for their target market, allowing only the most relevant ads to appear. When relevant ads appear on your website, or ads that interest/speak to your specific target market, they are likely to click on those ads.
In short, Google AdSense allows Internet marketers and website owners to work together to ensure the best possible results from results driven advertising.
And the best part about Google AdSense? It’s FREE!
Rather than giving permission to advertisers of all varieties, Google Adsense puts the power in your hands to choose which ads make the most sense for you, your business and your target audience.
Google defines its AdSense program in the following way:
―Google AdSense is a fast and easy way for website publishers of all sizes to display relevant Google ads on their website’s content pages and earn money. Because the ads are related to what your visitors are looking for on your site – or matched to the characteristics and interests of the visitors your content attracts – you’ll finally have a way to both monetize and enhance your content pages.
It’s also a way for website publishers to provide Google web and site search to their visitors, and to earn money by displaying Google ads on the search results pages.
Google further hails AdSense as ―The flexible, hassle-free way to earn revenue online.
Here’s how Google claims that you will benefit from AdSense:
―Get paid for displaying targeted Google ads on your site.
As we’ve already discussed, Google will pay you every time your site visitors click on an ad within your site.
―Customize ads to match your site’s look and feel.
Not only can you choose which kinds of ads will appear on your site, you have the ability to integrate them seamlessly by selecting a color scheme, size and placement specifications.
―Track your success with online reports.
Google makes it very easy to follow your AdSense success by providing you with easy to read, easy to manage reports that show you which ads are being clicked, how often and how much you are earning with your AdSense account.
From an outside perspective, Google AdSense is, in both theory and reality, a fantastic tool. So, it’s not just a self-proclaimed useful and effective way to gain revenue for your business… It really is!
