PPC Blog: How to Deal With an Unexpected “Gift” of PPC Responsibility

If you’ve ever exchanged gifts for Christmas, birthdays or any other special occasion, you’ll know the sinking feeling of receiving a present you’re not entirely sure you want.

Which is also how you might feel if PPC responsibility has been “gifted” to you in addition to your other marketing activities.

Even if you’ve been pestering your marketing manager for months to add pay-per-click advertising to your company’s marketing mix, having the responsibility land in your lap might not be quite what you had in mind.

Nevertheless, there’s no need to despair! Rather than thinking of ways to politely decline the gift (or, more likely, trying to re-gift it to a colleague), you’re better off doing what you can to get up to speed with PPC as quickly as possible.

To find out how, take a look at my column 3 Ways In-House Do-It-Yourselfers Can Prepare for PPC Management, as recently featured in Search Engine Land.

“Pauline has a take-charge attitude and subtle-yet-confident approach that resulted in her being immediately embraced by our development department when we first engaged with her PPC agency in 2010.

She is not only creative but possesses the rare skill of being able to communicate her ideas and their associated benefits effectively, which in our case resulted in immediate improvements in our project performance. As she became familiar with our customer base, Pauline suggested a unique methodology custom fit to our complex business model which out-performed my expectations. And, best of all, she did all this inside my tight budget restrictions.

Put another way, Pauline gets results.”
