I work for a service company. We have work for our employees when a customer requests/needs a job completed. We are only looking to increase our search ability. Would CPA work for us?

Hi Julie,

Welcome to the community¬


Based on the goal to be accomplished from the adwords, you can go for the strategy.


CPA is ideal when you have defined goals such as completion of sale, inquiry, lead.


If visibility is important then, you can go for display advertisements on search and display networks.


Two goals could be-


Branding: Increasing the visibility- CPM models on Google Display Networks using relevant keywords, contextual targeting, placement, audience targeting).


Direct Response: CPA model.

To implement CPA, you need to have atleast 15 conversions in last 30 days.


This is just a brief, if you need more details help, please elaborate.
