Our paid media process

Research and exploration

We’d never work with a business without taking the time to get into the nuts and bolts of what it’s about and what it really needs through extensive research – ultimately enabling us in delivering the results that can really make a difference to your online visibility. And we do it all with a friendly, approachable team who love what they do.

And we do it all with a friendly, approachable team who love what they do.

Strategy and action

Once we’re clear on your target audience, KPIs and keywords to target, we’ll share a clear plan of action. We’ll start off with an initial three-month plan of activity, which we’ll generally revisit every month, tweaking and refining as much as we need to, based on data generated and other learnings.

Analysis and evolution

Although we have countless successful campaigns behind us, every sector, business and website is unique. There’s no one-size-fits-all thinking here. We are constantly learning and adapting our approach, whether it’s a new angle for copy or changing tack on keyword strategy. Best practice, Google’s guidelines and industry trends are always moving, and we move with them.
