Want to keep a local mindset, internationally?

Canada is not China, and Chile is not the Czech Republic. You may be able to walk into a McDonald’s or access Netflix pretty much anywhere in the world, but each local area still has its distinct culture.

One-size-fits-all ads don’t work when markets have different user behaviour and preferences. Whether it’s local sensibilities, political affiliations, preferred social networks, working practices or another factor, there are lots of variables that determine how people act.

We’ll make recommendations based on the types of messaging – and the timings – audiences are likely to respond best to.

Unsure how to tailor your copy?

Well-written copy can make all the difference in any campaign. It’s the difference between having a loudspeaker and being drowned out by the noise of the internet. 

When working with an international PPC strategy, copy designed for each region is vital. You need expert translations, and copy to be in a relevant tone of voice.

What’s worse than having your ads ignored by everyone? Having ads that look unprofessional, rude or that don’t make sense. We’ll make sure to dot all the umlauts and tick all the accents

Want to conduct detailed international research?

We’ve produced PPC ads for various territories, but we don’t take anything for granted. We do plenty of digging, tracking online sentiment and keeping up to date with local events. Local businesses in the same market also come under the microscope, so we can see what your competition is doing.

The result is a complete picture of the market you’re stepping into, allowing you to put one foot in front of the other with confidence.

Want to improve the performance of your landing pages?

Not every website is set up to receive traffic from multiple international locations. That’s where dedicated PPC landing pages come in: quick to set up, hosted on a subdomain of your website for authenticity, and easily changed and improved. Importantly, they are also easier to track performance as only paid traffic will be directed to them.
