Paid Media Agency & PPC Services
PPC campaigns tailored to you – and your customers
What does our paid media & PPC service involve?
Paid media campaigns shouldn’t be one-size-fits-all. Campaigns that aren’t tailored to a business’ environment and objectives will fail: it’s that simple.
We put the hours and the effort in, getting to know your business, your competitors and your market. Having formed a complete picture, we compile a range of target phrases and produce ad copy that speaks to your customers, setting up campaigns that attract the attention you want.
And as far as platforms go, we don’t have favourites. Google, Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn…there are plenty of options, all with their own pros and cons, and we’ll choose the best blend of them for your business and budget.
While we’ve run hundreds and hundreds of paid media campaigns, we don’t make any assumptions on what’s going to work and what isn’t.
Instead, we test and refine, tweaking audience targeting, ad schedules, keywords, copy, landing pages and other variables based on real-time data. We also monitor thousands of data points every month, making precise adjustments to things like search terms, audience lists, interests, device usage and locations.
Nothing is left to chance: we’re all about data.
Above everything, what we’re really concerned with is reaching – and going beyond – your campaign targets.
First off, we establish what your ultimate goal is before we do anything else at all. It could be revenue, lead generation, a target cost per action, reaching as many people as possible or reconnecting with your audience after a brand relaunch.
Whatever your primary objective, we’ll optimise your campaign accordingly and report on progress with that objective in mind.

Our PPC & Paid media services
Online advertising is a vast space, with a dizzying array of options. What’s most effective will depend upon your particular business, but fear not: we’ll guide you every step of the way.
There’s no getting away from it: Google sneaks ads under our noses every day. And that, of course, is what makes them so effective.
It’s not just in Google search results or through YouTube. There’s also the Google Display Network of over two million websites and the remarketing ads that precisely target the right prospects, based on specific user behaviour.
The world’s biggest shop window can yield some great results, particularly with an experienced agency like ours to take care of Google Shopping management and optimisation for you.
Generating significant return on investment is far from straightforward, however. After examining user intent and what stage of the marketing funnel your potential customers are in, we put an integrated strategy into place. We also pivot and refine ongoing campaigns to put more weight behind top-performing products.
Expanding your reach to overseas territories can open up a whole new stream of revenue, and international pay-per-click campaigns are a great way in.
But you have to tread carefully: a simple misspelling can become an embarrassing faux pas. Fortunately, our network of multilingual experts can set up bespoke ads in your chosen language, carefully suited to local user behaviour.
Every minute, tens of thousands of products are sold on Amazon. Make yours one of them.
We’ll help you advertise directly within Amazon’s search results, selling as a third party or using the Amazon logistics systems that perform so well.
Not set up on Amazon? Don’t worry about it: we’ll handle the process from start to finish.
A huge 4.8 billion people worldwide (57% of all people and 95% of all adult internet users) have some form of social media account.
But while advertising on the likes of Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter or Pinterest can give you some almighty reach, getting the tone and placement right can be difficult for businesses. We’ll create authentic-sounding posts, targeting highly segmented audiences that will be receptive to them and move you closer to your social objectives.

Frequently asked questions
What’s the minimum monthly budget Distinctly work with?
You’ll need to spend at least £3,000 per month on your campaign, which will allow you to see some real results from your campaign.
Should you bid on your own brand name?
It all depends upon the situation, but there are lots of benefits to bidding, which outweigh the costs:
- Direct visitors to pages deeper within your site
- Give people more info (such as phone numbers or site links) with ad extensions
- Bidding won’t break the bank, since there won’t be too much competition
- Head off potential threats from those pesky competitors
How do privacy laws affect campaign tracking?
It very much depends on the activity you want to run. Has GDPR made it more difficult? Yes. Is it the end of the world? No.
Fortunately, everyone’s in the same boat, so new technology and best practices are being developed all the time, and we’re still able to report on true ROI just as we were before. It just sometimes takes a bit more work to get there.
