If you needed brain surgery, which of the following would you choose…
A. General Practitioner
Expertise: Deals with colds, the flu, chicken pox, and 752 other ailments.
Brain-Surgery Experience: None. The closest he ever gets to seeing a brain is when he peeks in your ears with his otoscope.
B. Renowned Neurosurgeon
Expertise: Handles ONLY neurosurgical procedures.
Brain-Surgery Experience: Has dedicated his life to neurosurgery. Graduated first in his class from the top neurosurgery school in the nation. Has performed 1,793 successful brain operations.
If your gray matter needs a tune-up, it’s obvious which of these two you’d choose to “peak under the hood.”
This is not a knock on general practitioners; they do one of the most important jobs in the world.
But let’s face it…
Certain things require the expertise of a specialist to ensure success.
…One of those things is pay per click.
If you’re a contractor, it can be tough to get good results by hiring a PPC “generalist.”
Unfortunately, 98% of PPC companies are generalists. They don’t specialize in any specific industry; they use the same strategies for EVERY type of business, whether you’re a contractor or a dentist or a car salesman or a brain surgeon.
And if you know anything about marketing, you know that “one size” does not fit all when it comes to consumers.
Sure, there are overlapping desires among consumers no matter what they’re buying. Someone buying a new television wants some of the same things as someone who’s remodeling their kitchen: quality, a good price, a sense of satisfaction with their purchase, and so on.
But those are surface-level, “big-picture” desires. There are industry-specific buying triggers for both of these markets. And they do not overlap.
Case in point: Many of MYM’s PPC clients have used PPC generalists, and here is some of what they experienced…
- Few leads (since their ads were not speaking directly to THEIR markets’ desires)
- Low-quality leads (since their ads were not optimized for the type of customer they wanted)
- High cost per lead (as a direct result from the low quality leads the campaign brought in)
- Low impression share (because their ads were not interesting to people, Google relegated them to the bottom of the search results page… or didn’t show them at all!)
The only way to identify and activate the industry-specific buying triggers of your market through PPC is with the experience and knowledge that comes with practice. Years upon years of practice.
