Each of these elements is powerful, they will ensure that the adverts stand out.
Use keywords to demonstrate relevance
You need to include your ads in your keywords. In the first place, this will make your ad to look real, relevant. So that if anyone searches for ‘time management’, they will look for advertisements that have the phrase in the title instead of a general time management-related issues.
Also, if the words those people used are already in your ad copy, then it will appear in bold- this will make your ad to stand out.
Write a compelling or convincing heading
The first thing most people look out is the heading. So, it needs to be extremely good. Usually, the heading is descriptive phrases that showcase your product or service.
Have a clear call-to-action
Having a clear call to action will inspire people to keep on clicking on your advertisements. Use compelling phrases like: ‘get a quote’ ‘order’ ‘sign up now’ or ‘buy now’. This will give the prospective buyer an idea of what they will gain by clicking on the link that will take them to the landing page of your business website. Your call-to-action needs to be specific and compelling.
Include relevant information
It is necessary to include important offer details on your advertisement. You can include price details in the ads so that you will know that anybody that clicks on the ad is interested in your product or services at the stipulated price. In this case, more clicks would mean more money to your bank accounts.
