PPC – Setting Location & Language

Demographics of Users: Most important in running PPC campaign

For getting higher number of impressions, more CTC, and in turn higher return on investment (ROI) from the PPC ad, you need to analyze the target locations beforehand.

A target market can be segmented on the basis of:

  • Geographic location of users
  • Language of users
  • Demographics of users

User demographics are an important factor while targeting an industry or a market. It includes gender, age, income, marital status, literacy, occupation and lifestyle of the ad recipients.

You should need to consider the following demographics while creating an ad:

  • Gender: Male and female users react differently towards consumer products, services, shopping, jewelry, magazines, etc.
  • Age: Users’ needs and demands change with age group.
  • Income: Users’ affordability varies depending upon their income levels.
  • Occupation: Users’ occupation affects their lifestyle which in turn affect the product or service they opt for.
  • Marital status is an important factor. Experts say, single buyer buys a specific product more frequently than those who are married. Also, married people are inclined to pay more prices.
  • Literacy: Awareness and comfort level of the users with handling internet activities affect PPC ads and in turn the seller’s business targets.
  • Lifestyle: The acceptance of a product is highly driven by the user’s day to day lifestyle.
