Our Birmingham Office Offers:

Free Audit and Review Ask our Digital Marketing Experts

Our digital marketing specialists will happily offer you a free audit to ascertain your strengths, weaknesses and opportunities. More often and not, it doesn’t take long to pin point why a PPC account or website has underperformed, and provide a clear plan of recovery.

Typically our teams will provide a live, onscreen walk through your account, which for most clients is a real eye opener to what has been done or often hasn’t been done historically.

This provides a wonderful opportunity to ask questions live and for the teams to provide examples or simply show you how.

We often say there are no hiding places when it comes to digital marketing audits, that said we are cautious not to scaremonger when an account is relatively well structured and managed.

In some audits ,we’ve ended up giving clients the thumbs up on their current agency, which speaks volume for our style and integrity. Our team tailor these audits and reviews to whatever level you require from layman’s terms to advanced.

    Every Client will have different performance, even within the same market, as there are so many variables such as websites, Prices, Products etc. However, for Ecommerce client we’d suggest a strong range between 15:1 to 6:1 for return on investment as guide and for services a strong range of 10:1 to 3:1. That said we have have enjoyed successes that far exceed these returns. For a more accurate feels speak to our PPC Team who can discuss your specific market and guide you.

    Ecommerce Sites: 1hr to 48hrs:

    We often give the example of an online mattress company, that approached us on the Thursday PM, went live the next day by 9am and by 12noon rang to increase their budget having had multiple sales. This particular client increased their budget three times on their first day such were the instant results and over the next 3-months saw their campaigns develop significantly. So to answer that question for ecommerce, your PPC adverts could be live rapidly within 24 hours with sales forthcoming from that point. Note, it typically takes 3-months to gather data, refine, test and optimise at which point the full potential of the campaigns materialise.

    Service Provider : 1 day to 4 days

    Service websites vary significantly, but as a rule we expect to see sales within the first few days of the campaign launching and to refine these campaigns over the first 6 weeks. In this 6-week period significant understanding and evolution occurs, including recommendations for website development and in some cases performance can significant increase beyond the first 6 weeks as the campaigns establish

    Our PPC Team appreciate that from tiny acorns grow mighty Oak trees and more often than not have managed multiple Acorns (Now Oaks) over the years. Therefore, our team can start with PPC budgets of circa £500pcm to evidence performance and provide confidence to incrementally increase your budget.

    Our team also appreciate that so smaller clients, the importance of starting small and building up.

    Normally £500pcm is a good start point. However, within a week our PPC team can provide an indication to the market share achievable for those that wish to spend more

    For established campaigns, we’d recommend maintaining the current spend to expedite data collation and refinement.

    Our contract terms do vary depending on the industry sector, spend levels and degree of discount sought. However, our default contract focuses on a 3-month trial term and a main term thereafter of 3, 6 or 12 months. This provides confidence in our service delivery prior to entering main terms. The main term also maintains the same account management team as far as reasonable to do so throughout, so the team learn your business inside out.

    Yes – our contracts are typically setup to provide you with a trial term of 3-months. This providesclientstheconfidence that they are not locked into long term contracts until results are demonstrated.

    PPC is commonly assumed to be Google Adverts, but really PPC (pay-per-click management) is better considered as Paid Search Ads or Paid Media Ads, basically any platform which your adverts incur a cost once clicked. Our Paid Search Platforms are typically, Google, Microsoft (Bing), LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram. However, we also work with others, as well platforms unique to other global search engines such as Yandex (Russia) or Baidu (China) or 123Khoj (India). Typically, albeit not always, we start with Google, due to the belief that if you can’t get a return from Google Ads you are likely to struggle with the other platforms.

    Our teams will happily work with little instruction and guidance, for those clients that have other commitments or are satisfied with the deliverables, to clients that wish to have a hands on approach. Our management incorporates a degree of Comms, Meeting and Strategising time, so 9 times out of 10, our PPC team can liaise within their schedule. Occasionally clients require time beyond the standard or additional bespoke reporting. This is typically covered with a marginal fee increase to provide additional scheduled time. Please speak with our PPC team for further guidance.

    Absolutely – your accounts are setup to provide you admin access.

    This is a common question and there is no clear answer with so many scenarios and variables to consider. That said, we often recommend to start with PPC as Clients enjoy the ROI quickly and can gain confidence quickly. In addition the SEO campaigns often benefit from the PPC data on keywords and conversions.

    Furthermore, PPC is also more dynamic and adaptable if ROIs are not satisfactory, with changes taking effect immediately. SEO typically takes 1-month to 3-months for changes to be registered by the search engines, so aren’t as adaptable.

    We encourage clients new to marketing to launch with PPC and within 3-6 months engage with SEO.

    A good question and one we are often asked. In our opinion we are the best in Central England by some margin and to be fair independent reviews from Google and our FTSE 100 clients  support this confident opinion. In terms of the national circuit we are considered to be one of 20 elite UK agencies and we are considered to be amongst the top agencies in Europe as well. This is partlytestimony to the quality of the UK marketing industry. If you’d like more information please talk with our Operations Director – Luke Hodgkins.

    Your Marketing Questions Answered...

    This is a common question posed to our SEO teams and also our PPC teams. The reality is that both are highly effective marketing channels which offer significant returns and increase your sales income. However, your specific requirements tend to dictate whether SEO or PPC is best for you or indeed both.

    As a rule a rule of thumb we would always advocate a holistic Marketing Strategy with PPC, SEO and Social Media as a foundation. However, the urgency of a return or swift demonstration of potential performance often leads to a choice of one or the other.

    If you’d like to have an open discussion on the best solutions and strategies for you, please contact us and our digital specialists can discuss how we’ll get maximum performance quickly.

    SEO is a marketing channel like no other, in that you can clearly see how you stack up against your competition for your main keywords or services. What’s maybe not as clearly visible for you is how you stack up against the long-tail keywords (i.e. variations on users search queries that you wouldn’t necessary think of typing or less common).  This is great news for evaluating the competition and how you sit within the market place.

    This showcases the level of investment and the level time required to compete and dominate within your specific Market.

    As a rule of thumb, some SEO activities can be picked up within days or weeks and see significant ranking improvements, other take 3-6months to register with search engines.

    We have a fantastic track record of accelerating clients into the desired top spots on Google within a short period. For more information and our team to review the competitiveness of your Market place, please contact us for a chat.
