B2B PPC Advertising is Different to B2C PPC Advertising

In B2C world it’s common to search for “red shoes”, click through to a catalogue page and make a purchase.

But this almost never happens in the B2B sales process due to the longer and more detailed sales cycles involved. 

So while B2B social and google paid advertising can work very well, it needs to be tuned and adapted.

We are a B2B PPC agency and specialise in generating good quality leads that can be nurtured and/or handed off your sales team.

LinkedIn PPC Agency Services

LinkedIn is of course THE global business social network and so it’s natural to consider using LinkedIn advertising in your business.

And so you should.

It can be used very effectively to generate brand visibility and directly generate leads. 

LinkedIn allows you to target the right buyer personas at the right companies quickly and easily. If you do it right, every lead you collect will be pre-qualified.

We provide LinkedIn advertising campaign strategy, creative and landing page design, execution and management services.

Facebook PPC Agency Services

b2b lead generation and prospecting

But Facebook is personal social network – there’s no point running B2B advertising there. 

Or is there!?!

Business people are, of course, also people and Facebook has lots of members who are people.

Facebook can be a great place for direct lead generation and brand building. It’s also substantially cheaper per lead than LinkedIn. 

You have to be more selective on which leads you pursue but that’s why we use lead scoring techniques and automate with tools like HubSpot.

We provide Facebook advertising campaign strategy, creative and landing page design, execution and management services.

Google Ads Agency Services

Google Ads is of course the oldest and best known of the Pay Per Click advertising services. 

It allows you to target people with ads as they are literally searching for what you sell. 

But it doesn’t allow you to target the right person or company.

As noted you’re not likely to sell to them immediately. In B2B sales you should be targeting the top end of the funnel and nurturing them into conversion.

We provide Google Ads campaign strategy, creative and landing page design, execution and management services.
