A PPC agency in Preston focused on ramping up your ROI
Pay-per-click (PPC) also known as paid search, is one of our favourite channels at every1 – and one of the fastest ways for you to start seeing a return on your investment. It works best with CRO (conversion rate optimisation, if you aren’t a fan of jargon) to ensure clicks convert to leads. Google says on average for every $1 spent on ads, the return is $2. Luckily for you, we aren’t your average PPC agency.
Research shows that approximately two-thirds of people who click on Google’s PPC adverts do so when they search for things related to purchasing products. In other words, when people are ready to buy, they’re more likely to click on pay-per-click ads.
We also find a lot of clients start off by doing PPC in-house, dipping their toes into the world of PPC, instead of using it as a key channel to drive revenue. This means there might be an untapped resource at your business’ front door - that’s where every1 comes in, to help take your PPC performance to the next level.
Types of PPC
PPC campaigns aren’t just all spreadsheets and numbers, there are a variety of paths to go down, and it is important to find the ones that suit your business best. These can include, but are not limited to:
- Google Ads
- Bing Ads
- Google Shopping
- Display advertising
- Paid Social
Your proposition will need a creative edge to really stand out from the crowd, regardless of the tactics you choose, and we like to think our digital team is pretty good at that too.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Does PPC work?
PPC or pay per click is a way of increasing traffic to your site via paid for methods, instead of trying to attract traffic organically. It allows you to bid for ad placement by bidding on keywords. You pay for clicks for those keywords you’ve bid on, which then serve as adverts based on what a user has searched for. This means if a user finds your ad using the keywords you’ve bid on, you pay a fee if they click on it.
What is a good conversion rate for PPC?
A conversion rate is conversions/clicks x 100. Within that, it’s difficult to say what a good conversion rate is because it depends on the industry, how well the page serves the user, and even what the conversion itself is. For example, if it’s a higher priced item, the conversion rate will be lower than a cheaper product.
How do I know what I'm getting in return on PPC?
A simple way to find this out is to take your ad spend and your conversions and do the following formula: Adspend ÷ number of conversions = cost per acquisition. For example, £100 ÷ 2 = £50 CPA. You will also need to factor in your profit margins to see if you’re getting a good return on investment.
Should I make a brand campaign on Google Ads?
A brand campaign is usually the cheapest you will run, because you are targeting your own brand as a keyword. It’s useful as you can control the messaging. For example, if you’re having an online product sale. A few other reasons are to stop your competitors bidding on your brand terms and help users find you if you don’t rank very well organically for brand terms.
Why is Facebook’s click-through rate lower than Google Ads?
The click-through rate for Facebook is generally lower due to how users are targeted. Facebook uses audience intent, whereas Google ads typically uses keywords. These keywords have higher relevance to someone who is searching for something, which, in turn, they are more likely to click on. This is instead of serving them something that they might follow on Facebook, but they are less likely to click on.
Should my ads be at position 1?
Holding advert performance by position isn’t a great way to see if you’re getting a good return on investment. In some cases, being at position one can lead to lower returns due to people clicking on the ad because it’s at the top of the search page, but it actually isn’t what they were looking for.
