Pay per click advertising works, but it can be difficult to navigate (nevermind optimize). Especially if you're not trained in Google or AdWords best practices.
Most small business marketers who come to us for help have no training or experience with sponsored advertising before jumping (or being thrown) into the deep end. Usually, they're the designated "marketing person" who was handed the role out of necessity, and they're now wearing a tower of multicolored hats.
Small businesses often can't afford to hire an expert PPC marketer - and that's where PPC agencies come in! They're an affordable alternative to a full-time PPC employee, and if they know what they're doing, you'll see their costs paid back and then some.
One of the benefits of working with a PPC ad agency is they're specifically trained to avoid the following extremely common pitfalls. They understand how relevancy, competition, and search volume are the biggest factors in PPC keyword choice. They know exactly what "relevant" means in regards to your specific company. They know how to build effective campaigns and optimize ad groups to pay the lowest possible CPC while still producing great results.
In short, they're experts. By definition, they know things about pay per click, search engines, and sponsored advertising that a regular person doesn't. If you think you're paying too much for clicks, an experienced PPC agency will be able to tell you where you're going wrong.
