Digital Online Marketing can deliver high return on investment ROI and is fast to set up, test, measure, refine and update.
We help clients select the best mix of online marketing and help them integrate this with existing marketing activity.
We believe in creating a consistent brand experience across channels and devices. Our approach is customer insight led, and in particular understanding and defining the customer journey.
We can work with your existing agencies and also partner with specialist agencies to help you improve the effectiveness of your online marketing
Online marketing can sometimes be implemented in silos across multiple specialist agencies or various in-house teams and often resulting in missed opportunities and a confusing customer experience
We help clients join up the key elements of their online marketing and help them improve :
Pay Per Click, Paid for Search Marketing PPC
Search Engine Optimisation SEO
Web design and branding
Email marketing is one of the key outbound channels offering significant opportunities to personalise, build engagement with customers and grow sales.
Low cost and readily testable email can be optimised allowing marketers to significantly improve ROI.
Yet our recent research shows there are still significant opportunities to improve email effectiveness.
Only 10% of customers who had opted into receiving emails from companies thought the content of the emails was relevant consistently (always or often).
Poor relevancy drives low open rates and click through which in turn drives poor in-box deliverability
Open rates of just 20% and below are common. We have seen cases where over an entire year less half of an email list/ customer base had opened any email.
Email Marketing Strategy
We believe Email marketing needs to be developed in the context of the CRM and the multi channel strategy and fully integrated into the marketing mix and consistent with the brand.
Email content and email timing needs to be driven by where a customer is on the path to purchase, the customer journey
their customer life cycle stage their RFM and customer segment
There have been significant improvements in email service provider technology in recent years allowing clients with even modest budgets to achieve automation and personalisation without big systems integrations and large teams.
Implementing advanced email strategies such as automated dynamic content can significantly lower running costs and achieve a double digit % improvement in
open rates, click through rates, sales and ROI

Paid Search Google Ads
Pay Per Click (PPC) , Search Engine Marketing (SEM), can deliver the highest return on investment (ROI) and can outperform other forms of marketing.
We take a strategic approach and we believe in clearly defining business goals and objectives. We develop effective campaigns and focus on clear outcomes
We also believe PPC campaigns need to work alongside other online and traditional marketing activity and to be properly integrated into the overall marketing plan and be consistent with the brand.
Paid Search Optimisation
Some clients discover after a successful start performance reduces this is because campaigns need to be regularly optimised as the competition and potential customers change behaviour . Other clients want an independent and objective review of their current campaigns so they can increase performance.
Pay Per Click is one of the most measurable forms of marketing as all sales, inquiries or visits can be traced back to individual ads and keywords.
By investing more in higher performing areas and improving or eliminating the poor performing aspects of your campaigns return on investment ROI can be significantly improved
We start with a review of the goals and objectives and how well the current Pay Per Click strategy is performing against those objectives. We look at how efficient the campaign structure is and how key metrics are are performing
Ads, Landing Pages and Web flow is evaluated for creative effectiveness. Keywords are reviewed and recommendations are made to increase quality and reach. We look at advanced settings such as Ad scheduling, Location, Languages and Bidding options to remove any inefficiency
We provide a clear set of recommendations which can be either implemented by your company, your PPC agency or by us.As such an important part of PPC strategy is trialling and testing new approaches it normally takes around 3 months before a campaign can be fully optimised
