Mountain Path Media and the Pay
Per Click Trail
marketer takes pay per click opportunities into consideration for
their clients. For some, it may be intimidating to "bid" in an
auction market for keywords. But for Mountain Path Media's
principal, Mickey Wesler, it comes naturally. Mickey spent 15
years working for the Philadelphia Stock Exchange with a good
portion of that time in the "derivative product" market.
Therefore, bidding in an auction market is "old hat".
philosophy is that pay per click or "Paid Search" is a market place,
just like other market places. It is made up of buyers and
sellers and price variability based on supply and demand.
There is only
one #1 position for a particular keyword. The more bidders
that want it, the higher the pay per click fees will go. "My
job, as I see it is to look for inefficiencies in the market place
and take advantage of this hole for my client's advantage" says
Mickey. Also, she does not necessarily believe that being #1
is the best position for all keywords.
Think about how
the stock market works. Why are stocks bought and sold?
It is because two people have different ideas about what it is
worth. One of the reasons the differing opinions exist is that
some of the information people use to make stock market trading
decisions is unfounded.
search marketing is no different. Like the stock market good
information is an edge, hot tips are not. Paid search
information needs to be gathered and analyzed, just like in the
stock market. Also, each keyword is not worth the same amount
to every company.
experience in the stock market and the pay per click market make her
paid search methods efficient and effective.
