Pay-per-click (PPC) is an advertising model that helps marketers to display ads on any ad platform and pay the host of that platform every time the ad is clicked.

4 Excellent PPC Tactics to Try in 2020
If you want your PPC strategies to remain effective in the coming years, all you need is to evolve. Here the term ‘evolve’ signifies the way to think about things somewhat differently than others.
And, if your method isn’t advanced already, then here are 4 tactics you can try this year, in no particular order, and achieve most of all.
1. Choose the Target Audience
Google Ads offers one of the latest and best features, i.e., the ability to add target audiences. It enables you to decide who all you want to see your ads. So, why not just take advantage of this feature and get the most out of your ad budget.
The feature to add target audience enables one to categorize, for whom the product is best, like a particular age group, gender, household income, etc. One can also set ad preferences to bifurcate audiences if you don’t think your service benefits everyone. Like, if you are trying to sell fine jewelry, you can exclude people with fewer incomes as there are high chances that they will be less likely to spend big bucks on earrings or necklaces.
Another latest yet best Google Ads update that helps advertisers, is the ability to layer audiences on top of each other. This means, to create extremely relevant ads, one can use keyword targeting and demographic targeting together and can achieve better results.
2. Advancement of Smart Bidding
Those who are not aware of Smart Bidding, it is machine learning-controlled automated bidding system. Simply, these systems use machine learning to optimize conversions and conversion values in auctions. Some of the examples comprise Enhanced Cost-Per-Click (CPC), Target Return on Advertising Spend (ROAS), and Target Cost-Per-Acquisition (CPA).
Since we are moving into 2020, smart bidding is set to become more advanced, also the strategies utilizing it are going to become more powerful.
3. Target the Audience at Life Events
Those who have ever run Direct Response campaigns are very well aware that reaching potential customers can be very critical. Not only now but even in the pre-digital days, it was critical to its performance.
For instance, if you’ve ever gotten a mortgage, you’ve probably received a huge number of offers. And the major reason behind that – data shows it’s effective.
Similarly, to get a huge number of offers, Google Ads enables you to run promotions for specific “life events” on but a limited basis right now. We are calling it limited because:
a. Only restricted to life events such as:
- College graduation
b. Currently, only available for Gmail and YouTube campaigns.
Google Ads launched such targeting capabilities in the last couple of years and most likely it will get expanded as a targeting layer for additional events and platforms as well.
4. Evolution of Voice Search
We all know personal assistant speakers in Smart homes, such as the Google Home or Alexa Dot, have taken off in a big way. According to reports, around 50% of all online searches will be initiated by voice by the end of 2020.
You may say that Paid voice search advertising hasn’t yet made it to the mainstream, but soon we will see these advancements to emerge due to a rise in technological changes.
Hence, adopting a more conversational tone on your website can be a good way to get ahead of the game. While making voice searches, people are getting more conversational nowadays, which means it will improve your chances of a hit for sure.
Also, to set yourself up for voice search success, try updating FAQ pages on your website using ‘long-tail’ keywords and attain huge benefits.
