4 Reasons How Paid Ad Campaigns (PPC) Can Fail Small Brands:

1.  It's Simple Economics

If your brand is in a competitive space (Hemp, Cosmeceuticals, Apparel, Etc.), the big brand will outbid you for the customer "Click".  Small brands simply cannot compete financially against larger brands.

As a benchmark in most product categories, spending 5 figures per month ($10k+ per month) is a small advertising budget.

It is expensive and there is no guarantee of Return On Investment (ROI).  This means there is a good chance you won’t even break even and get your money back.  There are games in Vegas with better odds of winning.

2.  Small Brands Do Not Have Brand Awareness So Potential Customers Don't "Click"

Small brands all are fighting to get their brand name and message out to new customers.  It's all part of growing your brand and business. 

Potential customers, seeing an unknown brand in an ad, are not as likely to "Click" on the ad as opposed to an ad for a brand they recognize.

3.  Fraudulent "Click Farms" Costing You Money And Never Buying Your Product

A click farm is a form of click fraud, where a large group of low-paid workers is hired to click on paid advertising links for the click fraudster (click farm master or click farmer).

Fraudulent click farms steal your money and do not build your sales or business.   According to statistics gathered by fraud protection platform PPC Protect, which analyzed more than a billion ad clicks to compile its annual Global PPC Click Fraud Report:

  • 11% Of All Search Clicks Are Fraudulent

  • 17% On Connected TV Campaigns Are Fraudulent

  • 36% On Display Advertising Campaigns Are Fraudulent

You, as the one paying for "Clicks",  are paying for this common type of fraud.

4.  It Is Tough To Breakeven On ROI With Paid Advertising

The cost never ends.

Once you stop paying for ads the campaign is over.  It's not like you built lasting web pages or social media posts.

The campaign has to be perfect, both in content, delivery, and long-lasting to be meaningful.  When you’re online how many ads do you not even look at?



The Better Alternative

Mass Landing Pages

Using Simple Backend Coding, Web Landing Pages (those that show up in search results in Google, Bing, Yahoo, Etc.) Is The most cost-effective way to develop brand awareness and to develop customer recognition.

There is no monthly campaign cost, there is no fraud cost, and you can scale it to unlimited size.

Build a template page and automatically generate thousands of web pages based on zip codes or area codes.  Generating the pages costs nothing and can improve your search engine presence.

This little-used organic SEO method can get your brand on page 1 of search results.
