Sitting alone with your cup of coffee at 5:30 in the morning the question hit you like a ton of bricks. You asked yourself…

I’m going to come clean right up front and tell you I HATE Pay Per Click (PPC). Paying more and more and more (isn’t that redundant?) for PPC ads with declining returns is a place I’d rather not be.
