PPC for targeting Kent and beyond

Focusing your PPC Agency activity on Kent

A Kent business can use PPC campaigns to precisely target prospective customers in its immediate locality, throughout the county and beyond.

Simply Clicks is a Kent PPC agency. Based in central Ashford close to the International Station and M20 junction 9. We have big PPC agency expertise, with the benefits of small agency focus.

Why a Kent PPC Agency?

Simply Clicks is a Kent based Google Partner PPC agency. We have been managing PPC campaigns since 2003. Over 200 of them. We hold Google Adwords Advanced Search Marketing, Google Mobile Advertising and Google Analytics IQ certification. Our approach to providing PPC management services is entirely up to date. We have managed a number of Kent based PPC campaigns for clients of various sizes from local hotels and SMEs to multinational-owned businesses. We provide SEO, PPC and web analytics services across both B2B and B2C marketing channels in industries such as travel, leisure, financial services and building services.

The county of Kent is a market of 1.7 million potential consumers. Including Kent postal addresses inside the M25 such as Bromley, Beckenham and Sicup, the total Kent population rises to almost 3 million. Almost 5% of the total UK population. Kent is therefore one of the UK's largest regional markets. In many market categories, search terms including Kent are exceeded only by those for London, Manchester and Yorkshire.

Kent contains some of Britain's most affluent towns in Sevenoaks, Tunbridge Wells and Chislehurst. At the same time it includes fast-growing towns such as Ashford, large urban centres such as Medway and Maidstone, the historic city of Canterbury and fashionable coastal towns such as Whitstable and Deal.

Targeting Kent Customers Using PPC

There are three basic ways to use PPC to target prospective customers based in Kent.

  1. Use county, city, town or locality based search terms. For example "hotels in Kent", "Wedding venues Maidstone" or "Insurance brokers Medway". That way you can still run a UK-wide campaign but only pay for website visitors with a direct interest in being provided with a local service.
  2. Restrict the geographic footprint of your campaign to Kent or one of the larger towns. Google Adwords' campaign settings allow you to focus exclusively to Kent or larger towns such as Maidstone, Medway or Canterbury.
  3. Use radius targeting. Radius targeting allows you to pick any point on the map then set a radius of how far from that point you want your advertising to show. This could be for 10, 15 or 30+ miles. This feature is particularly valuable if you are located close to the border of Kent and want to pick up business in a neighbouring county such as East Sussex, Surrey, Essex or South East London.PPC Radius Targeting around Ashford Kent

PPC Management for Mobile

Mobile based PPC is particularly useful for local PPC activity. This is because about 50% of mobile based searches have a local content. These searches are particularly valuable as a higher proportion compared to desktop based searches lead to an actual sale or conversion.
