Top Ways for Energy Businesses to Utilize PPC Ads
Expand Your Service Area Footprint
First of all, pay-per-click advertising can be used to help your oil, propane, or energy company expand its marketing footprint—that is, the area from which homeowners and business owners can find your company. If your brand awareness campaigns currently only focus on the primary towns you service, you’re missing out on a huge demographic of potential future customers.
Many service-area businesses struggle with appearing high up in search results organically in the towns on the outskirts of their service areas. PPC ads can fill in the gaps along with advertising to pinpoint-specific geographical areas such as towns you drive through on your daily route. Adding these stops along your delivery wouldn’t cost you anything additional, but add another stream of revenue to your income.

PPC Search/Text Ads
