You may not agree on the station. You may not agree on the playlist or the genre or who the best rock band of all time is (Led Zeppelin, obviously). You could loathe Christmas carols or Classic Rock or whatever the office mandated soundtrack to your day is. (Anyone who’s ever worked in retail or at a bank knows this truth all too well).
Or you could be like most people, who enjoy a sampling of their favorites in the privacy of their headphones or ear buds.
Despite what your music preferences may be one thing unites us all. Music is scientifically proven to have a positive impact on productivity in the workplace. Study after study confirms the science behind it, acknowledging that the chemical known as dopamine is released in our brains when we hear music, and dopamine helps boost our mood. A happy worker is a productive worker, making music its own kind of catalyst to business success.
Combine that with a well-laid out business plan that appropriately integrates elements of the ever-evolving world of social media, search engine optimization and search engine marketing, and you have earned yourself a one-way ticket to paradise.
So the time is now to channel your inner music lover and embrace the ambiance provided by a compilation of search engine marketing tracks sure to entertain and inform you of everything you should expect from a search engine marketing company worth their weight in Grammy’s.
#1 – TLC – No Scrubs
Identify the right keywords, scrubs need not apply
Most search engine marketing services revolve around a pay-per-click model, which is exactly as it sounds. You want to drive traffic to your website, and clicks get them there.
How that happens begins with a process of identifying the ideal keywords to use that will fit best with your goals, product offerings and target audience. A big part of creating a successful pay-per-click marketing campaign is knowing what keywords do and don’t work for you.
A good search engine marketing company “don’t want no scrubs.” When it comes to hanging out the passenger side, PPC marketing can’t get no love from anything but the best keywords that promise the greatest impact for the campaign.
#2 – Survivor – Eye of the Tiger
Keep your ad campaign’s eye on the tiger
Once the most effective keywords have been identified, it’s time to play around with different configurations of PPC advertising. Trying out a few different ad sets and ad variations to see what works best for your unique search engine marketing campaign is akin to keeping your eye on the prize. That’s where a pay-per-click agency thrives by “rising up, straight to the top,” “just a plan and its will to survive.”
#3 – Phillip Phillips – Home
Bring it all home (to your landing pages)
Once the keywords are understood and the ads are created, it’s time to bring it all home. Curb appeal has its perks in the PPC management realm, where search engine marketing services companies want you to “know you’re not alone, ’cause we’re going to make those landing pages their home.” Often the landing page is just that, a welcoming beacon that can either make or break the entire pay-per-click process.
#4 – Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell – Ain’t No Mountain High Enough
Ain’t no mountain high enough, to keep us from getting leads to you, babe
Tracking installation and testing are the next steps to making sure everything will fall into place at campaign launch. Like any of the steps in the process, this is one that involves careful consideration and collaboration from everyone on the team to make sure the i’s are dotted and the t’s are crossed. A good SEM company is confident that together they can help clients reach new heights. And more importantly, track where exactly those leads are coming from. “Ain’t no mountain high enough, ain’t no river wide enough, to keep us from getting leads to you, babe.”
#5 – The Smashing Pumpkins – Today
Today is the greatest (campaign launch day)
It’s time for all that behind-the-scenes work to go live. The keywords are in place, the landing pages are ready and today is the day. Campaign launch is the day we say “we wanted more, than your old page could ever grant you” and “today is the greatest day you’ve ever known.”
#6 – The Beastie Boys – No Sleep Till Brooklyn
No sleep, no sleep till we’re cooking.
Whoever said life is more about the journey than the destination knew something about the future of AdWords, Bing Ads, and other search engine marketing platforms. The work doesn’t end after launch, it begins. Search engine marketing is an ongoing process of monitoring performance to ensure the pay-per-click advertising process is doing its job. PPC management agency professionals get no sleep until the campaign is optimized and countless hours are spent working on and tweaking the ad copy, analyzing top performing keywords and adjusting bid strategy, among other things.
#7 – Led Zeppelin – Stairway to Heaven
SEM is your stairway to heaven
An effective adwords management company ultimately conducts an assessment that includes providing analysis and feedback from the overall campaign. It is at this point that pay-per-click management services are evaluated for their return on investment. It is something most PPC management companies know will “glitter in gold, because you’ve bought a stairway to heaven.”
#8 – Alan Jackson, Jimmy Buffet – It’s Five O’ Clock Somewhere
And it all starts all over again tomorrow
And the best part of it all is that a good SEM company knows when its quitting time. (Aside from the overall effectiveness of search engine marketing services, obviously). They know when it’s time to put down the spreadsheets and data and let off some steam. Because tomorrow is another day.
