SEO marketing - PPC ADVERTISING

PPC advertising can be usefull to get traffic to your web site when you get started. Due to effective search engine optimization you might not need this anymore in the next few months. When using Google Adwords and Yahoo Search Marketing be sure you understand how it works and start with very low ppc rates and after reviewing this several times in the next week or so consider increasing the bids when neccesary. Indepent PPC advertising consultants (Nozzie) can explain you a lot within 2/3 hours.
Do's: start slow, evaluate, be very specific with ads and hire a consultant for a few hours to do it right. Have a web site which can convert visitors into paying customers

- Effectiveness can change in days as competitors might increase their ppc rate which could make your referals drop with huge amounts
