On the debut episode of Call To Action, we delve into the world of pay per click advertising, which can be a bit overwhelming if you're just starting out. To get off to a solid start, it never hurts to look to veteran marketers who have already done their time in the PPC trenches.
We speak to Elizabeth Marsten, Vice President of Search at Portent, Inc. about the common mistakes that marketers are making with their PPC campaigns.
In the interview, Elizabeth explains why PPC marketing and online dating have more in common that you might think. When Elizabeth first met her future husband, she was disappointed when his bearded mug didn't quite line up with his babyfaced Match.com profile pic.
Similarly, in your PPC campaigns, if your ad doesn't line up with your landing page, then potential customers will feel confused and misled, also known as poor message match. And if they have a weird or confusing "first date," they're probably not going to give your campaign a second chance.
