5 Tips for Managing PPC Following the Coronavirus Outbreak

We all know by now that things will never be the same after this past year’s events. Things we used to not think twice about – shaking hands, crowding elevators, and dining out – have all seen reconsiderations and revised practices. And while the digital ecosystem provided safety from the pandemic, it saw its own challenges and plenty of changes.

BUT, things are looking up. In the wake of this chaotic year, Search Engine Journal has 5 tips for managing PPC.

  • Pivot to Normal-ish. Different areas will have their own protocols for COVID-19. Whether it’s mask-wearing, capacity limits, or continued closures, be aware of what is happening in the places you’re running ads. Remain sensitive to the issue at hand so your ads don’t seem out of touch.
  • Evaluate Business Value Propositions & Messaging. Many businesses revised their practices to provide a safe way for customers to explore products and services and ultimately make purchases.

  • Reconsider Your Channels. Facebook has seen an increase in usage of messaging and call services that it hasn’t monetized.
