"Why should I run a brand campaign?"


Brand advertising online is not always as straightforward as it may seem. One of the most common questions we are asked is why by new customers is “Why we should bid on our brand name if we already appear on the first page organically?” Put simply you don’t have to. But in almost all cases it is the best course of action.
Below I’ve outlined the top three reasons why.

1: Brand Campaign Quality Score Brand search campaigns will usually generate some of the highest quality scores (QS) possible (9’s and 10’s). Therefore, if you do a lot of paid search campaigns and need to raise your account-wide average QS then this makes for an easy win. The search volume often isn’t very high and comes with a low CPC so it takes up very little of the budget while pulling the account wide QS up by its bootstraps. Using brand keywords can increase CTR, QS and reduce CPC!   2: Brand Protection At any point, any number of your competitors can choose to try and leverage your hard-earned brand awareness for their own benefit. Running a brand campaign will prevent them from being able to take the top spot for your search terms. Brand campaigns will keep you at the top of the pages, and while competitors might still appear alongside you, they most likely won’t the first result – because your ad is there, boosted by its great quality Score! Bear in mind that there are many searchers that do not differentiate between paid ads and organic listings, so the top spot is worth protecting!   3: Pushing Promotions By pushing a brand campaign with paid search, you have the opportunity to push any message you want. While SEO has many virtues, it is not the most dynamic platform, and changes can take months to set in. If your brand has a sale on and you want your existing customers to know about it right away then you need to push it with a paid brand campaign.   So there you have it. Three convincing reasons why you should commit a small part of your budget towards a brand campaign. Small dollars with big returns are what effective campaign management is all about!

    We asked Direct Clicks to build a website for Robokids, we wanted to ensure they understood our brand and market. Highly recommend Direct Clicks, the service and communication are fabulous. Graham was just terrific.

    We were hesitant to change from managing our own ads to paying a fee but we couldn't be happier with switching to Direct Clicks. Our viewers are more engaged and we're converting more leads. They spoke our language and made sure we understood the options we had. The after sale service cannot be faulted. Highly recommended

    We engaged Direct Clicks to re-design and upgrade our existing website - which involved layout, structure, underlying tech, transfer of existing domains and ongoing hosting. We found both the sales as well as the delivery processes to be '5 star' and would recommend them without hesitation.

    After trying numerous agencies ( Sponsored links and Reach Local), Direct Clicks were recommended to me. The difference was amazing. I can actually talk to someone and the support I have received from both the Adwords and SEO teams has been first-class. Highly recommend.

    We are extremely satisfied with the results Graham and the team at DirectClicks delivered for our website. Migrating a website from a previous provider is not always an easy task, but Graham was able to guide us step by step, explaining our options in detail, as well as giving us an easy to follow tutorial on how to use WordPress. I would highly recommend DirectClicks to anyone seeking assistance in creating a new website. Great company, excellent service and support!

    There are many companies around that offer similar services. What I like about Direct Clicks is that they really understand the important roll their work plays in the success of the businesses they serve. Additionally, and importantly, they take responsibility for their work and the associated outcomes.
