If you have a website, you most likely want it to appear in the top search engine results. And to get there, you have 2 options:
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is built and improved by optimizing web pages using several strategies until the search engines see the pages as relevant enough to the user to show them quickly in the search results.
Paid search (SEM) is the process of buying keywords that, when used in a search engine query, trigger an ad. SEM is done using keyword buying tools such as Google Ads and Microsoft Ads.
We advise our clients who are new to digital advertising to get started with search engine marketing (SEM) using Google Ads. And here’s why.
Improving the performance of web pages in a natural way on search engines (SEO) takes a lot of effort, time and expertise. A lot of work is indeed required onsite (writing optimized content, adding technical improvements, etc.) and offsite (writing a Google My Business page, adding external links, etc.). Several months are then necessary to really assess the performance of the optimizations made.
With Google Ads, campaigns have an impact from the moment they go live.
Google Ads is a safe bet to appear ahead of your competitors on Google, if you put the effort into it, and therefore improve your chances of being chosen by your potential customers. With Google Ads, you can automate bids on certain keywords so that your ads appear when those keywords are used. If in addition you work on the other factors essential to a good ad performance, you have a good chance of appearing first.
The beauty of SEM with Google Ads is that if your ad shows and nobody clicks, you don’t pay. If someone clicks, you only pay for that click. How much you are willing to bid for each click is sort of a gamble: What are the odds that my website will convince the visitor to call me or buy?
This great cost control often gives my clients a very good return on their investment.
With Google Ads, in addition to paying only per click, you pay per day. Control over your investments is therefore total, from the start to the end of the campaigns. At any time, you can change the maximum amount you want to invest per month, day or ad.
The strength of Google Ads campaigns is to present a message perfectly suited to the wishes of users, when they need it.
It’s simple: We buy for you the keywords that are most likely to generate sales and attract potential customers. When a purchased keyword is typed by a user into search engines, an ad promoting your product is displayed. The potential customer therefore sees a message designed for them, at the right time, about you.
Well-configured Google Ads campaigns involve using all possible extensions. Why are they so important?
Ad extensions allow you to provide as much information as possible about your products and services, naturally filtering out visitors who will only click if the ad is relevant to them. Google Ads is designed to direct genuinely interested customers to your most relevant web pages.

With Google Ads, you can learn a lot about who clicked on your ads: How many remarketed clicked? How many were actually ready to buy?
