GTA-Specific PPC Tactics for Brick and Mortar Brands

Whenever Toronto is at the heart of a campaign we need to factor in geography. No one is driving from Oakville to Markham to buy a toothbrush.

Established storefront businesses in the GTA need to concentrate on the location queries and the distance of the advertising. That is to say:

  • Should a Vaughn-based business target searches for businesses in Richmond Hill?
  • Should the advertising for a Brampton-based business be advertising for searchers living in Mississauga?

When e-commerce companies require Google Search ads management services, there are still geographic factors to consider.

People want to shop closer to home when it's strictly an online experience. It's safer, more comfortable, and there might be more brand awareness closer to home. Ways to maximize these are with:

  • Local ad messaging in Google Ads
  • Local extensions in Google Ads
  • Enhanced bids in locations where conversion rates are higher

Typical PPC campaigns and scenarios

Disadvantages to PPC

Scalability. The ceiling is only as high as your budget. More clicks mean more cost, which is not the case with organic SEO traffic. Organic allows for exponential traffic which is music to anyone's ears.
