The Role Of PPC Advertising
PPC advertising can be challenging. Most businesses can’t afford to solely rely on PPC advertising. It’s too expensive, and bid
amounts inevitably climb. But pay per click can fill a few important roles:
- Campaign and issue-based efforts
- Direct response business
- B2B awareness around niche terms
- Product listings
Even though the ROI on PPC can be fairly low on average it is not something that should be completely abandoned.

Unit Scientific’s Position on PPC Marketing
The goal of any business is to grow its organic traffic. There is no cost for anyone clicking on links that are placed on other websites or displayed on search engines.

There is also some value in doing PPC for your brand name so your competition does not come up first on the list when someone searches for your brand specifically.
