(SEM) Paid Search Engine Marketing

SEM stands for Search Engine Marketing and is the practice of bidding on your business’s relevant keywords and keyword phrases in search engines like Google, Yahoo or Bing. An SEM campaign is meant to increase website visibility and traffic by utilizing paid search advertisements. SEM is also commonly known as PPC, which stands for pay-per-click.

SEM is actually a unique form of acquisition marketing; you only pay for a keyword when someone clicks on your website. Therefore, your marketing spend will not be based on impressions.

Potential customers who are searching for these keyword phrases are seen as well-qualified leads, meaning they are more likely to convert into actual customers. Since you would be paying for every click to your website, using long-tail keywords would provide the best return on investment possible for your SEM marketing spend.
