Many people wonder if there is a catch with working as a PPC Freelancer or if they really can make the amount of money that they are promised. To be honest most people don’t even know the full extent of the deceit that goes on behind the scenes before you get started. When I first got involved in PPC advertising, I didn’t know a lot about it and I spent a lot of time following blindly as my mentor sold me all these different techniques and ‘tricks’ that I had never heard of before. I am still learning, but I do have some great tips to give to those who are just starting out in this industry.
The first thing that you need to know when you are working as a PPC freelancer is that you will be paid per click. There is no denying that you will also be paid per sale, but the problem is that you will not be paid by the actual number of clicks that you perform. Instead, you are paid depending on how much time your ad is on a page. So, if someone is on a 10 second page and clicks your ad, you will not be paid the full amount that you would if they were on a 1 minute page. This can be a bit difficult to understand if you have never been involved in a pay per click marketing before, but it is the truth.
One of the hardest things that new Internet marketers face is the difficulty of knowing what their pay rates are going to be. Most companies like to keep their rates at a high level so that they do not lose too many clients, but this can be tricky because when you are starting out the only work that you will be getting is very little. That is why it is critical for you to establish yourself as a reputable and reliable marketer before you ever sign up for any pay per click service. This will ensure that you get paid what you deserve and you won’t find yourself stuck paying ridiculous rates for work that you don’t enjoy doing. Once you have established yourself as someone who can be trusted to work within the parameters of the pay rate, then you will be able to negotiate a better deal with any company.
