Automotive PPC

What is PPC?

PPC stands for Pay Per Click. It is a form of digital advertising that automotive dealerships can use to drive traffic and conversions from around the web. You pay a fee each time one of your ads is clicked on. 

The most common form of PPC is search engine advertising. This approach is also called ‘paid search’ or ‘search engine marketing’. Each time someone performs a search on a search engine, adverts will be displayed if the search terms are related to your business. Automotive PPC is an effective way of advertising your dealership to new customers who are searching for what you have to offer.

How does PPC work?

PPC is an online auction for advertising space on search engines. PPC adverts have many different formats: 

  • Search Adverts 
  • Display Adverts
  • Shopping Adverts
  • Video Adverts 
  • Gmail Adverts 

The majority of PPC adverts are displayed on Google, purely because this has the largest search audience. To run PPC adverts you first need to sign up to a Google Ads account. From this account, you can then start to build your PPC Campaigns. 

A basic campaign consists of targeting keywords relevant to what your business offers and your location. So for example, a used car dealer in Sussex may target the following keywords:

  • Used cars Sussex
  • Second hand cars Sussex 
  • Used cars Brighton 
  • Used cars 

Then you can set the location to target a city, county, postcode or even a radius around your business.
