SEM—or search engine marketing—is a way to advertise to web users looking for businesses like yours. Buying keywords that are relevant to your business allows you to control your budget and target your advertising to your most likely customers.

Here are some things to know before launching an SEM campaign:

  1. Have a budget:Every small business owner should know what they can afford to pay for a conversion and still make a profit.
  2. ROI: It’s all about return on investment. If you know you can afford to spend $20 per lead to make a sale of $50, you’re in great shape—keep spending.
  3. First month blues: If you’re new to SEM, you’ll probably spend more the first month because you’re testing what works and what doesn’t.
  4. Highs and lows. SEM is industry-dependent. Some keywords cost pennies per click, while other businesses may spend $50 to $100 for each click.
  5. Start small. Test the waters with a $500 monthly budget.
  6. Make a move. Scale your budget up or down anytime, so if something’s working, scale up.

Ed Pisani Jr. with Bounce Marketing Inc., is an Orlando based pay-per-click marketing professional, he believes every business can benefit from an SEM campaign. “You get to put your ads in front of only people who are actively searching for exactly what you sell,” he said. “And you only pay when someone clicks on your ad and goes to your website. The daily impressions of your ad is good brand building as well – sometimes impressions from an ad can be in the tens of thousands weekly or monthly based on a client’s budget.”
