In the field of e-commerce, SEO or search engine optimization has become common knowledge, but what is SEA and do I even need to deal with it? If you are in the field of e-commerce or even own an online store, the answer to this is quite clear - yes, you have to. Your company and therefore you can only profit from SEA. Why? - We will explain that to you in the following article. We are also happy to offer you further support in the area of performance marketing, especially for online stores, and together we can increase the performance of your store!

What is SEA and how can your online store benefit from it?

SEA is the abbreviation for search engine advertising, but is also called keyword advertising and includes the placement of advertisements in search engines. Search engine marketing is available on various search engines such as Bing, Yahoo, Googe and Ecosia, the best known of which, with a market share of almost 90%, is Google with Google Ads.

Via Google Ads, you can place various advertisements, such as shopping, image or text ads, and thus advertise your company. If you approach this strategically, you can increase the performance of your store. While SEO - search engine optimization - is a process in which you have to invest time and patience, SEA can provide you with good results relatively quickly, such as an increase in traffic. Digital growth potential is possible based on campaigns, keyword searches and optimization of ad texts. This includes optimal monitoring of campaigns and later post-processing or adjustment.

Reasons for SEA - search engine advertising for your successful e-commerce

Measurability: Through SEA, goals such as increasing the number of visitors to your online store or your brand awareness are measurable. Through later evaluation of your campaign, your results become measurable.Grafik Laptop Besucherzahl durch SEA für Onlineshops erweitern

Quick success: If you use SEA correctly, the campaigns for your store and thus your company will be successful quickly. In contrast to search engine optimization, where the results are only visible later, SEA results are visible quickly.

Cost control: With SEA, you decide on the respective daily budget, which should not be exceeded. Usually, three different price models are used for billing: CPC, CPM or CPA. CPC stands for Cost Per Click and is the most common variant - you only pay if your ad is clicked.

Target group specific targeting: You have determined in advance which target groups you want to address with your store. Also with SEA you have to determine which target group you want to reach. You know your target group exactly? Perfect! Then you can build your ads specifically for them and address your potential customers. You are not quite sure? Target group targeting provides you with many targeting features that make it easier for you to set the target group.

Brand awareness: Through SEA, your online reach will increase and your brand awareness will rise. In addition to attracting new customers, your ads will also increase the visibility of your store - not everyone who sees your ad will buy from you, but your brand will be noticed and thus become better known.
