10 Per Click - Do They Know Something We Don`t? - Two key points...
(Page 3 of 3 )
FINDING THE GAPS
Two key points are crucial: (1) how much does it cost to get an Internet acquisition compared to traditional methods? and (2) what is the value of a new customer? In some businesses a new customer is worth $1,000, while in others, only $10. Typically, the cost-per-click reflects this value, but since the market is still very small, there are significant gaps. Remember the “debt consolidation” keyword phrase above? The difference between the first and last cost-per-click was about 30%. On the other hand, there is literally no difference between cost-per-click rates for the keyword “Xenical”. From this you may conclude that there is a lot more competition for “Xenical” then there is for “debt consolidation”. The opportunity is between the gaps in the 30% differential example.
The bidding market for keywords is still so new and untapped that it's rare to have more than three competitors fighting over a specific phrase. The gaps in keyword cost-per-click charges such as “debt consolidation” are the norm and represent tremendous opportunities still available in this media. Right now they are plentiful, and for those few people who take the time to understand this important marketing tool, the time to act is NOW!
