How to Select a Paid Search Management Application.
Redding, CT (PRWEB) January 8, 2008
Paid search advertising continues to be the largest segment in online advertising spending. With growth forecasts of more than 27% for 2008,* it is a critical part of any online marketing campaign.
Paid search is also one of the most complex and competitive of the online advertising channels.
Enter paid search management applications: software and services developed to help marketers and advertisers measure, track, and analyze the success of a paid search campaign. The demand for paid search management is exploding along with the paid search advertising industry.
But there are a wide range of products out there, and choosing the right paid search management application can sometimes be like finding just the right keyword ... a real challenge.
On Thursday, January 17, 2008 at 1PM EST, Search Marketing Now will present a live educational webcast: "How to Select a Paid Search Management Application." Speaker Christine Churchill, of Key Relevance, will examine the various considerations to make when selecting a paid search management application - and the steps you can take to make the decision that's right for you. The webcast is free, and registration is open.
For example, where do you start? Do you use an outside agency, third-party software, or go the do-it-yourself route? If you do go with a third party search management application, what should you consider when making this selection? And if you choose to go it alone, what are some the steps you should take to be successful?
The webcast will cover when to use paid search management applications, the pros and cons of the various options, and how to go about making an informed decision. The webcast will include a live PowerPoint presentation with streaming audio, followed by a Question and Answer session with the speaker.
