Our definition of Paid Media

Paid Media could be defined as any marketing activity that involves a paid advertisement. It implies that a business spends money promoting its goods and services.

This could involve Pay-Per-Click (PPC) advertising: as the name suggests, you are charged when users ‘click’ on your adverts based on an array of targeting options. This ensures that visitors are pre-qualified and relevant when they reach your business.

Branded content and display ads may also be viable options and these could be priced according to ‘reach’ – the number of impressions gained from the target audience.

This can include:

The goal of paid media is to increase brand awareness, drive traffic to the website, and ultimately generate sales or leads.

Paid media works by targeting specific audiences based on their demographics, interests, behaviours, and search terms.

Advertisers bid on specific keywords or placements, and their ads are shown to users who fit the targeting criteria. The cost of the ad is determined by the bidding process, with higher bids generally resulting in better ad placement and visibility.

As users engage with the ad, businesses can track their performance and adjust their targeting and bidding strategies to optimise results.

Paid media

Paid media is advertising that a business pays for, such as search engine ads, social media ads, and display ads.

Owned media

Owned media is content that a business owns and controls, such as its website and social media profiles.

Earned media

Earned media is publicity gained through word-of-mouth, social sharing, or media coverage.

The main difference between these types of media is who controls the content and how it is distributed.

Paid media may benefit your business by increasing brand awareness, website traffic, generating leads, and eventually increasing revenue.

It helps you target specific audiences based on demographics, interests, and behaviours, which can result in a higher ROI than traditional advertising strategies.

Furthermore, paid media provides valuable data and insights into your target demographic, allowing you to dedicate your marketing plan and improve overall business performance.

Examples of paid media include paid search ads, display ads, social media ads, influencer marketing, sponsorships, native advertising, and content syndication.

Paid search advertising

This involves bidding on keywords to display ads at the top of search engine results pages on platforms such as Google Ads.

Paid social advertising

This includes advertising on social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

Display advertising

This involves placing banner ads on websites that are part of ad networks or partner sites.

Video advertising

Native advertising

This involves promoting branded content that matches the form and function of the platform where it is displayed, such as sponsored articles on news websites.


This involves showing ads to users who have already interacted with your website or content in some way.

Tools used to manage and optimise paid media campaigns include Google Ads, Facebook Ads Manager, LinkedIn Ads, and various advertising platforms.

Paid media can be highly effective in achieving specific marketing goals, such as increasing brand awareness, driving website traffic, and generating leads or sales. However, its effectiveness depends on various factors, including the target audience, budget, messaging, and the quality of the creative assets used. It is essential to have a well-planned and executed paid media strategy to ensure optimal results.

Why choose us as your PPC consultant?

Paid Media is a key element for any ambitious brand that wishes to expand into existing and new markets. 

We approach a paid media strategy in line with your objectives and decide where best to place your ad budget.

Learn more >

The role of a PPC consultant is to identify how best to approach your paid media strategy in line with your business goals. This involves understanding your target audience, how best to reach them on the desired platform (Google, Facebook and/or Linkedin etc.) and scaling your advertising budget while ensuring a consistent ROAS (Return-On-Ad-Spend).

Learn more >

Think of PPC as investment banking, where a consultant must make key investments in to target markets that can yield the most profitable results for your business.

Specialisms within PPC could include:

  • Search Ads (Google, Bing, Amazon etc.)
  • Social Ads (Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, Tiktok etc)
  • YouTube Ads

In terms of sectors, these can vary with a lot PPC practitioners opting for B2B, lead generation or e-commerce. With 7+ years of experience, we can handle any industry-specific advertising campaign.

A successful PPC campaign will depend entirely on the business and what their KPIs for growth are.

In practice, if you are a new business entering a market where you don’t have any existing brand visibility, you may prioritise reaching as large an audience as possible over profitability.

In contrast, if you are a well established business with tight profit margins, return on ad spend (ROAS) as well as scaling the advertising budget may be more important.

Also, it’s worth considering what the marketing funnel looks like for each business. A B2B enterprise company may have lead times that last for months to years vs an e-commerce business where transactions are instantaneous. There will be vast differences when it comes to measuring performance.

Any business can set up their own ad campaigns relatively quickly and start spending £1,000s worth of their marketing budget.

However, we often find that there will be numerous inefficiencies.

As an example, you could have been running paid media campaigns for a number of years achieving a return of 2x your ad spend whilst an experience PPC consultant could achieve a 3x return as well as scale the revenue generated. This could be achieved by auditing your ad account(s), restructuring your campaigns and advising on any user experience (UX) changes to the website.

We can provide a free audit initially while we discuss your campaign strategy.

Consultants are typically more invested in your project from end-to-end: from the sales pitch to the delivery of your paid media strategy. In comparison, large agencies could have their most experienced directors pitch to your business and then delegate the service deliverables to a newer member of the team.

Growthack is not a typical agency and relies on the knowledge of the co-founders as well as other highly-specialist partners to deliver the best work possible.

As an example, we work closely with a specialist development team, specific to the Magento platform (Adobe Commerce) for websites that need this support. This level of website management is often difficult to find within one, ‘full-service’ PPC and web agency.
