Some basic list of mistakes companies make with PPC services:
Using CPL(Cost Per Lead) Results As a Measure of Success
CPL is better than measuring cost per click but still not as good as measuring its success. It is only an indicator of your campaign quality. For measuring your campaign results, you should look at the profit that you make from it. If your PPC services are not able to generate a profit, it should need a revamp.
Trying to Get Too Many Keywords
Only a few keywords actually do all the work and unfortunately, a lot of the PPC budget gets wasted on a large number of keywords. To get the best keywords, you should test and filter them and choose the ones that generate the highest intent and avoid broad matches.
Not Bidding for the Top Spot Initially
Most digital marketing services try to build their clients’ rank by gradually increasing their bids. This does not provide enough opportunities for clicks to test the viability of the keywords and the content. A better strategy would be to bid for a higher spot right at the beginning.
Copying Ad Content
You should be able to create effective and differentiable ad content. It will not only attract consumers but also make your identity remain with them for long.
