How Google Cash Cow “online advertising” works ?

If you work in the search marketing industry, you may have found yourself having a conversation somewhat like this one (the same conversation I have every time I tell a “regular person” what I do):

Regular Person: So, what do you do?

Me: I work as a writer for a software startup.

Regular Person: What kind of software?

Me: Um, search marketing software?

Regular Person: So like Google?

Me: Well, yeah, sort of. We make software that helps people advertise on Google.

If this regular person is curious enough to know more (rare), I usually find it helpful to explain that Google advertising functions similarly to an auction. In the off chance that they tell me advertising on Google does not work, I tell them that our whole company exists because it does work.
