Online Marketing

Search Engine Marketing (SEM)

Search Engine Marketing is a form of online marketing that promotes your website through paid advertisements on search engines. While there are a few platforms, Google AdWords is the most popular and used. Google AdWords uses a Pay Per Click (PPC) model, which means that you pay a fee every time that your advertisement is clicked on.  This is not only very useful for getting leads, but can temporarily increase your visibility on Google for certain keywords.

FAQ - Your questions? We got answers!

How long does it take before results show?

Search Engine Marketing does get you results much faster than SEO, it usually takes no more than 2 days after the campaign has started for increased traffic to your website. However, a successful campaign also requires continuous work. It takes some time to be able to track and analyze your campaign, as well as monitoring and refining keywords.

What does the monthly report include?

Your monthly report will include how many clicks your ad received that month, the amount of impressions, the click-through rate as well as the cost of your campaign.

How does payment work?

All search engine optimization, search engine marketing and social media marketing services are prepaid services. This means that we’ll require your full monthly budget payment before we can enable your service.

We charge a 15% fee of your total spending for the month to manage your campaign and create your reports. This means if your budget is R2500 per month, your actual spending limit for Google AdWords will be R2125 and our fee will be R375 (R2500 x 15%) for the month and we will never exceed your spending limit.



  • REPAYMENT PLAN

    How does the repayment plan work?

    Upon acceptance of the quotation, we require a 50% deposit payment before the start of the project. The balance or outstanding amount has to be paid after we have completed the project.

    With the repayment plan, you are able to repay us the balance or outstanding amount over 3 months. However, failure to make payments will result in immediate suspension of your account.

  • WEBSITE HOSTING

    What is Web Hosting?

    When you design a website and want other people to see it, you will need to publish (or upload) it with a web hosting service.

    Web hosting services work by storing your website files in high-powered computers (web servers) connected to a very fast network. When someone types in your web address (such as www.advertisingsolutions.co.za), the Internet connects to the web server holding your website files and then transfers your website information back to their computer. From there they can surf and view the pages of your website.

  • DOMAIN NAME

    What is a Domain Name?

    A domain name (www.yourcompanyname.co.za) is essentially your company’s Internet address; the same way your company’s street address is used to find your offices, a domain name is used to find your website. Consider this: Pick a domain name that’s memorable and relevant!

  • NUMBER OF STOCK PHOTOS

    Stock photos are professionally taken photographs that we can buy online to use commercially, without having to stress over copy-right issues. It can be used to enhance your website or in marketing material.

    Stock photos can save you quite a bit of time and money, as you do not have to hire a photographer just to have some quality images for your website. While stock images cover a broad range of applications, it can be difficult to acquire pictures for a certain niche, or a specific product.

     

  • NUMBER OF SLIDES

    What is a slider?

    A banner slider is comprised of images and text on multiple slides, allowing you to rotate content on a single space on your website. It’s most commonly the first thing you see (apart from the logo and menu) on a website’s home page. The purpose of the slider is to catch the attention of the viewer while being visually appealing and easy to read. It can be used to display selected information, such as promotions or highlighting specific products or services, and can also be used to easily navigate your site.

    How many should I use?

    This is dependable on the amount of content you have on your website. Small websites that do not have much information 1-2 sliders will be enough. Websites with more pages and content to market will require more sliders to make the navigation of the site easily digestible for the viewer, while promoting certain products or content. We do not recommend more than 5 slides, as we find that most viewers spend a few minutes on your home page before moving on to another page and won’t view more than 5 slides.

  • NUMBER OF PAGES

    Most websites are comprised of 4 pages, eg: Home, About, Services/Products and Contact.

    Your Home page welcomes the viewer, with a general summary of your company and what you have to offer. It also helps the viewer easily navigate your site. Your About page may list company history, your mission and vision, team members, company values or any information regarding your company.

    Your Products or Services page is where you expand on the products or services you have. Your Contact page lists all your contact details, such as your physical address, contact number and email address. It is also good to have an enquiry form so potential clients can easily get in contact with you.

    These are just the most common pages used, the amount of pages will depend on the amount of information you have.
