Imagine being able to run an advertising campaign that would allow you to attract any customers or clients you want, at a budget of your own choosing, with a reach as broad as the entire internet-connected world, or as narrow as your own hometown.
This is the raw power and flexibility that exists with PPC marketing. Utilizing PPC marketing, businesses are able to bid to appear in the search results of specific search queries in various search engine. Businesses are only charged, when searchers click on their text ads. Keyword purchase is a sure way to guarantee that people who are searching for your product find your web site. The only time you pay is when a customer walks in the door. The top positions are shown on premier sites across the Web including Bing, Google, and Yahoo, as well as on up to thousands of other relevant websites! The concept is simple enough, however management of this program can be complex and incredibly time-consuming for a business to undertake on their own.

Why Hire a PPC Marketing Manager?
Doing your own PPC management can be incredibly expensive for an inexperienced advertiser. Without a dedicated PPC marketing manager, most lack the necessary tools and skills to analyze keywords and properly bid and structure ads for the highest return on investment. Businesses that attempt to do it on their own, will typically lose a significant amount of money, and simply assume that search marketing was a cost-prohibitive, as well as ineffective. Don’t fall into this trap!

PPC Management Fees & Rates
No matter where you go for PPC management services, there is a good chance that every single billing model you see is different for the same exact PPC campaign services.
What we have learned is that no client is the same.
There is no ideal method of charging and paying for PPC management services. This is why we offer a variety of charging and payment options. Our PPC campaign pricing model chosen depends on a number of factors and in the end typically comes down to client preference. We are perfectly happy quoting for percentage of spend, hourly, or flat-fee for our PPC management, optimization or consulting services.
- Factors that influence billing model choice:
- PPC management service provided – consulting, optimization, management,
- Stage of PPC marketing campaign – new, current,
- Level of Weal Media and client involvement,
- Mutual needs, availability, etc,
- Current state of your advertising and marketing campaigns,
- Your business goals and marketing objectives,
- Other services performed by Weal Media,
- Duration of agreement, and more.
PPC Management Billing Model Descriptions
Percentage Spend: This is the traditional advertising agency model. PPC management fees are assessed based on how much you spend in your PPC campaign accounts. Most PPC marketing agencies or companies charge fees that range between 15%-30% of your total PPC campaign spending. If you spend $10,000 each month with Google Adwords and Microsoft adCenter and the PPC management agency charges 25% of your total ad spend, their fee would be $2,500. The major drawback to the percentage spend model is that it may not encourage your PPC management provider to manage your ad budget effectively.In fact, the model may encourage some PPC management providers to spend more as their management fee is tied to the ad spend – not performance.
Per Keyword Phrase Bid: In this model, the PPC marketing management firm or company charges you a monthly fee based on the number of keywords managed for each of your PPC campaign accounts. For instance, if the company charges $15 per month per keyword bid per account and manages 100 keywords in Google Adwords and 75 keywords in Yahoo! Search Marketing, the management fee is $2,625 (100 keywords + 75 keywords x $15 per month). This seems to be a pretty equitable model. One downside is your costs increase as you add more keyword phrases. The additional costs may prevent some companies from seeking “long-tail” keywords that may not generate a lot of traffic, but may convert very well. A number of low-traffic, high-conversion keyword phrases can add significant profits to your ad click campaign.
Hourly Rate: The hourly rate model is used in many professional service firms and has been around a long time. The PPC management company charges you based on the amount of time they spend managing your account each month. If they charge an hourly rate of $100 per hour and work 15 hours on managing your PPC campaign, you are billed $1,500. The age-old flaw in the hourly rate model is that it encourages “less-than-honest” PPC marketing management companies to be inefficient – more hours for them equals more costs for you.
Flat Fee: A flat fee model is usually straightforward for both parties. Once the scope of a PPC management consulting service or advertising management has been defined, a project or monthly-based fee is assessed. One of the drawbacks with the flat fee model occurs when the scope of PPC marketing management activities is not clearly defined and questions arise whether a specific activity is included within the fee or not. Again, Weal Media is happy to structure a PPC management proposal and any relevant PPC campaign proposals with flexible pay options that best meet your needs.
