Marketing guru Seth Godin recently interviewed by Fortune said paid search advertising is “the first new and effective advertising medium in 50 years. It’s brilliant.” Not surprisingly, paid search advertising has grown to become a $4 billion dollar industry today and is forecasted by media analysts to grow to $9 billion in the next five years. Find out why paid search is part of the marketing mix of over 300,000 marketers, and why it belongs in your budget as well. Discover how to take full advantage of this amazing opportunity to drive new business, revenues and profits.
The seminar will teach you how to develop a targeted campaign and execute your strategy flawlessly. The content will cover campaign management from the ground up, including techniques and strategies normally covered only in advanced sessions. You will learn to plan and optimize paid search campaigns in Google and Overture. For marketers interested in local search and vertical portals, the seminar will include a section on the exploding local and vertical industry portal phenomenon.
To illustrate best practices in campaign planning and execution, best practices of major marketers will be discussed, including a major dating site, a top five financial services company, a leading B-to-B supplier and a huge online retailer.
