There are millions of companies advertising to consumers online. In such a competitive world, grabbing the attention of one’s target audience isn’t the easiest feat. Two commonly used types of advertising are organic advertising and paid advertising.
What do they mean? Allow the top marketing and SEO agency in Toronto, Gilmedia to explain using the Google search engine as the platform.
On Google, organic ads appear based on the merit of each site and can generate traffic naturally, over time, as opposed to using paid advertising as a means to attract more people to one’s website. If the website checks off all the search engine optimization requirements, then it’s more likely to appear at the top of all the organic search results. On the other hand, by having irrelevant content within the website (or landing page), having slow loading webpages, among other things – you can significantly drop your position in the organic search ad department.
Paid ads, particularly on the Google search engine, appear when keywords are triggered. Each keyword costs a certain amount (a certain bid), and if the cost is paid, then the paid ad will appear on the first page. However, it is worth noting that this depends entirely on how many other people are bidding on that keyword as well as how much they are willing to bid on it. For example, if one’s business consists of selling flowers and someone looked up Flower Store on the search engine, then the ad will appear because the cost of the keyword to trigger the ad has been paid for. Whether it appears at the top, the middle, the bottom, the second page or further down the line on the Search Engine Result’s Page (SERP) depends on the competition.
Which is Better?
Truthfully, one can choose to partake in both. In fact, combining both may have the best results. If your company is able to spend the time on organic ads, and has the money to spend on paid ads, utilizing both tools to expand your advertising reach may be worthwhile. By doing this both paid and organic ads will be able to support each other while broadening your business’ reach – which is the most effective way of advertising. This is not to say that by choosing only one, one puts themselves at a disadvantage. Absolutely not. Whichever option is chosen, one will always find oneself competing on an even playing field.
