By spending that little extra time to tidy up your campaigns and create new seasonally-targeted promotions, rather than just increasing daily budgets on your existing campaigns, you should see an increase in the performance, quality of traffic, conversions and, therefore, return on investment (ROI).

Seasonal marketing can be extremely competitive. I recommend that the ad copy must be top quality in order to stand out on the results page and get the searcher’s attention and clicks. In fact, the better your ad copy, the better your quality score and this can lead to a cheaper cost per click (CPC).

So why not make those extra sales by using pay per click advertising this Father’s Day? Always aim to get your specific campaigns up and running before it’s too late, and enjoy making a nice bonus this Father’s Day!
