One in a Million
You always assume that the plumber that comes over to your house is fully certified and experienced, or that the mechanic that changes the muffler on your car knows his or her job. But if your toilet explodes or the muffler falls off two blocks away from the repair shop, it’s obvious these people might not really be as professional as you thought.
Consumer information programs on TV like to bust scammers, gaining big ratings in the process. But in all seriousness, there’s a real need to consider who you hire for anything. You put your trust in dentists, chefs, and carpenters to serve you correctly; usually they do pretty well, but the times they don’t make you cautious in the future.
You can choose to do things yourself, but you will soon find there are some things simply you cannot do alone. In these cases, you have to go back to finding hired help, but the burning question remains: who’s legit and who isn’t?
In online business, you might find the answer when you scout services to assist with your online business processes. This is especially true with a hair-pulling operation like pay per click (PPC); you find yourself wishing that a PPC expert would walk through the door to help you out, but in the end, you have to search. And it’s fine to search, so long as you know which PPC experts are the real pros and what they can bring to the table to better your business.
The Hot Seat
When seeking a PPC expert, you have to put prospective applicants in the hot seat to see if they can create PPC success for your business. It’s a bit of a cruel process, but it’s necessary to separate the real pros from the phonies.
The scouting process can be arduous. It’s best to search online and, more importantly, get recommendations from others that use PPC. You’ll likely find that there’s no shortage of PPC pros in your vicinity, but again, it’s about narrowing the list down to those that can back it up.
When meeting with a PPC pro, they should be questioned thoroughly. They need to possess a track record of success with another business and know the language involved. Do they know about keywords and PPC optimization? Are they aware of all of Google AdWords inner workings so that they can apply it to your business successfully? Do they know when to display ads for maximum client traffic? If they don’t know this stuff or can’t at least demonstrate some knowledge of it, there’s a chance that they’re one of the phonies you’re trying to avoid.
Finally, and most importantly, any prospective hire must have an eye on the road ahead. A real PPC pro can take a business’ information and devise a PPC advertising plan that is open to future change, allowing for long-term success. PPC pros need to be ready not just for today, but also for tomorrow. If all of this sounds tough, that’s because it is; however, a real PPC pro is up to the task.
Long Time Running
A real PPC expert is someone who is interested in PPC management services. They not only want to impress, but also want to work for the long run. If you find that PPC pro that really lives up to the hype, hold on to them; pay them well and give them opportunities for more work. In online business, it’s tough enough to find success as is, but it’s even tougher to forge good business relationships. PPC management services means you have someone that can help you while you help them—it’s the best result from using tough PPC tactics.
