Tier Two Alternatives for Search Marketing Campaigns

Google and Overture dominate the paid search marketplace, but there are hundreds of other PPC networks that offer compelling alternatives to the 900 pound gorillas. These so-called Tier Two networks may not offer the reach or scope of the major players, but they do distribute your ads to niche sites where your marketing message may have a better chance of being acted upon. As an added benefit, Tier Two campaigns tend to be less costly and offer comparable ROI to what you get with the larger networks.
