If your small business advertises online, you likely have an account with Google AdWords. For those looking to market their services and products online, Google Adwords pay per click marketing offers one of the best ways for small businesses to get into paid search marketing. To begin, Google Adwords offers a number of easy-to-use tools to help you organize and optimize your pay per click marketing campaigns. Additionally, once you have a better grasp of the nuts and bolts of PPC marketing, Google Adwords is a robust platform that allows you to endlessly customize and tweak your campaigns for maximum effectiveness.

In short, it’s a marketer’s dream. (And that’s just the paid search portion of Google’s listings! Small businesses can also optimize their websites to better show up in Google’s organic listings, too!)

The first step in succeeding in search engine marketing – either paid search or organic SEO – is to understand how Google works.
