Three PPC Scare Tactics to Send You Running for the Hills

If you’re like most business owners or marketing managers, your email inbox is overflowing with unsolicited offers.

And among the deals on pseudo-designer handbags and long lost “relatives” wanting to will you their fortune (upon receipt of a small deposit), you may have also received unsolicited emails from PPC agencies.

While some of these emails may be professional and legitimate, others rely on fear-based tactics to win your business. And that’s not only problematic, it’s also unethical.

So what should you look for in these unsolicited emails (and occasional phone calls) to separate PPC scam artists from professionals you can trust?

In Pauline Jakober’s recent article in Search Engine Land, she details three tactics less-than-professional PPC agencies use to foster doubt and fear in unsuspecting business owners and marketing managers—tactics that should send you running for the hills.

“The Group Twenty Seven team is very data- and numbers-driven with a good understanding of AdWords. Pauline is a prompt and frequent communicator, which for me is an A item. And unlike many consultants, she will listen to you and work to understand your business.

Perhaps the biggest complement I can give Pauline is that she understands that my business is about making money. She is focused on using pay per click to improve our bottom line — not number of visits, not cost per click … but real “money in the bank” results.

Through the years, I have wasted a lot of money with 3rd party PPC companies with results ranging from poor to terrible. The time and money we have invested with Group Twenty Seven is time and money well spent.

I consider Pauline an extension of the Sign Art Etc team.”
