The cost of something is an important question in business, it helps you to analyse the worth, risks and possibility of implementing a strategy. So lets answer this popular question: "How much does Google AdWords cost?"

Adwords for your business

The best way to go about it, is to plan a PPC monthly budget. Create a specific budget for each of your online campaigns, divide your funds depending on the priority of each campaign, and then experiment and learn.

For example, if you have an ad with a Cost Per Click (CPC) of $0.20, and that you'd like to receive 200 ad clicks per day, your daily budget should be: .20 x 200 = $40
