Why train in SEA?
Search Engine Advertising, or paid search, allows you to promote your website by paying search engines or certain social network platforms.
It is a strategy that ideally complements your natural referencing action, more frequently called SEO (Search Engine Optimization), but also your SMO (Social Media Optimization). These three techniques are also included in what is called SEM (Search Engine Marketing).
Thanks to SEA, you will be able to gain visibility, acquire qualified traffic on your site, and consequently generate more sales.
The objective of a SEA training, as we will see in this article, is to give you the tools and skills to launch effective advertising campaigns on Google Ads, of course, but also on the main social networks and media that now all have their own advertising network, such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram or Twitter.
The final objective, following your SEA action, will be to generate a return on investment. And one of the great advantages of paid search is that you can measure your performance quite precisely, and adjust your strategy in real time, depending on the results observed.
If we tell you: your SEA expenses will amount to €10,000, you may find this amount exaggerated if your company has only a few years of existence behind it and a dozen employees. But if your Paid Ads efforts on social networks bring in 3 times that amount, the initial outlay is secondary.
At first glance, a SEA training program may seem rather unappealing to those of us for whom the subject remains vague and distant. But you should know that paid search is a sine qua non for the success of your online business, and understanding how it works is essential for launching effective advertising campaigns on the Internet and generating business for your e-commerce.
In a good SEA training, we will introduce you to the main SEA and social network platforms, and teach you many things, such as how to set up a Google Ads campaign, the different types of campaigns (Branding, Display, Retargeting, etc.), how to choose the right keywords, how to create effective landing pages, among others.
Here are 5 training courses that will allow you, in 2021, to discover the SEA or to deepen your skills in the field:
