The Right Platform for the Right Purpose

Our pay-per-click agency is experienced in a multiple PPC platforms, including Google AdWords, Bing Ads (includes Bing and Yahoo), Facebook and LinkedIn. We select the combination of platforms that will help you achieve your goals within your budget.

With AdWords and Bing, we develop keyword campaigns to generate leads and sales from users who are searching for your product or services. On LinkedIn and Facebook, our goal may be to build brand awareness, promote events or develop contact lists that feed other campaigns. Our multi-platform capability gives you more strategic options.


The Advantages of PPC Advertising

  • Quick: A well-designed and well-managed pay-per-click advertising campaign will quickly drive more traffic to your website or landing page and generate more qualified leads.
  • Quantifiable: We track every click, call and contact from a PPC ad, so you will know your cost per lead, cost per conversion and overall return on investment. The data we collect allows us to fine-tune the ads to further increase performance.
  • Effective: PPC reaches users at the very moment they are searching for your product or service, so they are more likely to sign up, buy or contact you.

A proactive approach to pay-per-click management and landing page testing allowed the Red Wing Shoes Industrial division to see a 747% increase in lead volume over a three year period.


The Promise vs. the Reality of Online Advertising

Pay-per-click advertising offers tremendous potential. Yet it requires extensive knowledge and experience to achieve results. It takes even more skill to boost the number of leads and the overall ROI.

How do you decide:

  • Which keywords to target?
  • Which platforms to use?
  • Which negative keywords to add?
  • What messaging will appeal to which market segments?
  • How to increase leads and reduce cost per lead simultaneously?

Unless you know which levers to pull when, you can spend a lot of time and money tinkering instead of achieving results.

The result is an online marketing campaign that is finely tuned for performance. Your entire PPC program is available for you to review in a real-time dashboard that gives you convenient access to all platforms, accounts and individual campaigns in a single place.
