“I’ve worked with Sixth City Marketing for multiple years now for my PPC and SEO needs. They have consistently delivered a high-quality product, are professional, and deeply care about their customers. They listen to my business needs and work with me to help my business grow. I’ve seen a massive improvement in the quality of leads, website visitors, and click-through rate. My website has experienced immediate positive results from suggested website changes, with increased forms completed, increased phone calls, and increased pages per visit. Other PPC companies I’ve worked with just waste ad spend, while Sixth City Marketing makes use of every penny.” – Jennifer Hristovski, SprayWorks

Get to Know Us

Back in 2010, our CEO John Sammon founded Sixth City Marketing while he was living in Columbus, Ohio. He then moved back to his hometown of Cleveland and got his first office space. Now, our headquarters is located just outside of the city in Westlake, and we have expanded to other markets such as Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, and Chicago!

Our team has grown as well over the years, and we have team members who call various cities home. We have a passion for helping businesses thrive through marketing and even promoting deserving businesses on our blog.

And even though we may butt heads when it comes to who has a better football team, at the end of the day, our goal is to not only bring your results, but build a lasting business partnership for years to come (just like some of our clients who have been with us from the start.)

FAQs Surrounding Our Pittsburgh PPC Services

Here are some common questions we receive as we consult with potential clients for their PPC management in hopes it can help you as your navigate finding a partner:

What is Pay Per Click?

As is sounds, companies will pay to have their ads displayed on a platform of their choosing, and get billed for every click their ad gets.

The cost of each click will depend on the website or application the ad is on, how much other people are bidding on the term you want to show up for, and more.

Popular platforms used for PPC marketing include Google, YouTube, Bing, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter.

How does PPC advertising work?

In a typical paid campaign:

  • A user initiates a search on the search engine
  • Google launces an ad auction which compiles relevant ads and their quality scores
  • To assign rank, the ad bid and quality are examined
  • Google displays the ads with the highest rank at the top of the page
  • Google will also calculate your cost-per-click (CPC) based on your quality score and other factors
  • If a user clicks on your ad, you are charged that determined cost

What aspects do you look at when it comes to competitors?

We look at many factors such as budget, keywords, landing pages, ad copy, and more to see how we can ensure your campaign can excel against other competition in your industry. Thanks to software such as SpyFu and others, we are able to easily see these components and other details such as ad history, seasonality, and more.

Does PPC really work?

We understand that you want the numbers to back up PPC strategies and tactics. With that in mind, here are some statistics our Pittsburgh PPC agency wants to showcase so you can achieve the best results:

  • 52% of all PPC clicks come from a mobile device (Lunio)
  • PPC has an average return on investment of 200% (SmallBizGenius)
  • Over 80% of the worldwide internet audience is reached by Google display ad campaigns (Rank Tracker)
  • 60% of mobile users will click on at least one PPC advertisement per week (Business Insider)
  • Investing in pay-per-click ads has the potential to increase a company’s brand awareness by 80% (HubSpot)

How do you track ROI data?

Depending on the campaign itself, we can typically track your results from the following:

  • Purchases
  • Form submissions
  • Phone calls

Our team can then work to match up your leads and sales so that your team can view your overall ROI on our campaigns we ran for you.

What do you recommend for crafting PPC landing pages?

Our team recommends Unbounce, as it helps write and create custom landing pages guaranteed to help maintain conversion rates. We love Unbounce for many reasons, including:

  • Over 100 templates to choose from that reflect your brand’s vision and goals
  • A/B testing for landing pages
  • Secure platform for your business data
  • Smart traffic feature depending on the visitor

How much do PPC services cost?

The cost of paid advertising can be determined by the amount that you want to spend on your campaigns. Depending on the budget, our team can work with you to make sure your budget can accompany the bids and cost per click of your PPC advertising campaign.
