The first page ranking position is the most important job and should be your priority. If you wonder why: Because of the amount of different of traffic you will receive. The paid add wil cost you between 0.30 cents and can go as high as 20 dollars. To get to the first page is going to be a challenge even if you are an expert in this area. Why?

First page ranking results within 6 to 3 years

How to get to the first page as fast as possible? Perhaps is this the first question that popup into your mind. 6 Months is a long time without seeing any real results right? If someone tell you they can get you on the first page within day’s. I would say it is possible if you got a domain authority, if this is the case the possibility is high they can rank within days in a weak niche market. In niches like clothes especially woman’s clothes it’s not possible, will take months of optimizations. This is an ongoing project to keep the site on the first position because your computation is working hard to get to the first place. They have their team of experts fighting for them and this is highly recommended if you want to get to the first spot of google.

Compare Free Organic traffic versus Paid ads

There are some benefits you get from paid ads and 3 of them are.

  • Fast results
  • Fast traffic
  • Fast sales

Of course this are the benefits of paid ads and you should run ads to get data and optimize your website. Optimize a website is the most important task you should focus on because this leads to conversations, Leads and new costumers. For any search engine to rank your website properly your website must be optimized. By running ads you can do this in less den one month. In this Periode you will get sales and with each optimization your sales will grow. Sometimes an website is build the right way from the get go and it has a good user experience. In this case you only need to optimize your website for ranking.

Downside of paid ads

If you run ads it will cost you and sometimes the cpc ( costs per click) can go as high as 20 dollars. One example is Linkedin, The costs per click are breaking records and this is because of the value of leads. If you get one good lead it can make your company millions or slingshot it to Forbes list. A major drawback with paid ads is: If you don’t know what you are doing or you don’t have the right strategy it will drain your pockets and in most of the time the business without a strategy and don’t know what they are doing will go broke in less then 3 months. I know people that got a loan from the bank and they advertise because of Youtube video’s they have seen. Some of them spent in 3 months 100K+ with no results and the friends who let ConsultancyTube guide them got amazing results. If you want to start doing paid ads and you are new or you do you want to take your business to the next level i would recommend you to contact ConsultancyTube for a brainstorm session.
