Pay Per Click Ads
Typical pay per click ads consist of a heading, a short summary and the URL where customers
who click on the ad will land. Some pay per click providers allow more words per ad, some
allow less. The rules regarding terms and descriptions used vary from provider to provider.
With some pay per click providers, your ads will appear instantly. With other providers, you
must wait until your ads have been approved.
Once you’ve written an ad, try creating different versions of it. Don’t be afraid to tweak ads and
try them again.
