PPC (Pay-Per-Click) is an advertising model that gets the right ad to the right person at the right time. PPC uses different search engines and platforms to market your offerings to a specific audience – from Google Search Ads to YouTube TrueView ads, the possibilities are endless. PPC advertising is a unique way to grow your customer base and generate sales.
PPC, or Pay-Per-Click, is an Internet advertising model.
It’s a way of using different search engines and platforms to market your products or services to a specific audience, but the advertiser only pays a fee when one of their ads is clicked on. Essentially, it’s a way of buying visits to your site, rather than earning those visits organically. This approach delivers targeted traffic to your site and means you don’t pay a cent until someone visits your website.
Competition for visibility in the search results is fierce. A comprehensive, well-executed PPC advertising strategy can accelerate the results you’re aiming for, enhancing your online visibility to your target market, bringing you more quality leads, more conversions and improving your ROI.
PPC also delivers immediate results – so it’s a great tool for launching and promoting new products or services – the advertising channels can stretch from Google Search Ads to Facebook Ads to YouTube TrueView, the possibilities are endless.

SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING AND MANAGEMENT
Social Media is the new word of mouth. The right messages, communicated in the right way will connect your audience to your brand and its personality. We create, curate and conceptualise content across multiple platforms, helping you build the foundation for authentic connections with your customers.
Word of mouth marketing has received a tech makeover and it’s called social media.
But today’s talk is all about follows, comments, shares, likes, tweets, retweets, adds, pins, posts, votes and mentions – thankfully, we’re fluent in social.
In today’s market, harnessing the power of social media is essential for growing your business and your brand. The truth is that you can’t afford to ignore it – it drives traffic, awareness, growth and revenue. Platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Instagram have changed the way we search, shop and share. The immediacy of social media also means that you’ll know exactly what your customers are thinking, allowing you to interact and ultimately improve your goods or services.
This behavioural change means you need a considered social strategy to maximise your reach and amplify your voice. But it’s essential that your content aligns with your brand and your tone; everything must fit within your brand identity.
A carefully managed social media campaign can bring endless opportunities to your business, but it’s important to choose your channels wisely and integrate them into your wider marketing strategy. Don’t spread yourself too thin; it’s better to concentrate on fewer networks and do them well, with a consistent identity and tone. This in turn will spark conversations and genuine connections between your business and your customers.
While SEO is critical for traffic generation, social media can be just as effective for the growth and success of your business. Our social media managers will create, curate and conceptualise content to help you find the sweet spot between choice of platforms and messaging, driving traffic to your website and turning ripples into waves.
Our Social Platforms
There’s no better way to tell your company story than by actually telling a story. In addition to our digital skillset, our content marketing experts are adept at generating longer-format content for your brand. In today’s world of short attention spans, any branded content must engage your audience from the get go.
Content is King.
Bill Gates may have coined the phrase over two decades ago, but it has since become a mantra religiously repeated by SEO practitioners and digital marketers around the globe. Content is what drives the Internet and it’s never been easier to become a publisher.
The media landscape has been transformed, digital channels and the proliferation of platforms and social networks have opened new ways to engage your customers. Today, businesses have an unprecedented opportunity to engage and connect with clients in more meaningful ways.
A social media presence is not enough; that’s why content marketing is quickly working its way to the forefront of all digital marketing strategies. Whether it’s text, video, imagery, infographics, surveys, webinars, blogs or podcasts – your content must be compelling and authentic. It also helps if it’s entertaining, useful and interesting to your consumers. High-quality content is a powerful way to market your business. What’s more, good content makes for great SEO and encourages customer engagement.
Adding video content to your landing page is a good way to increase conversions. Video encourages visitors to your site to stay longer; it will also improve your search engine ranking when optimised and promoted correctly.
Our content marketers skillfully produce dynamic content – from high production value videos and stills to beautifully crafted and optimised long-form copy. The kind of engaging content that has visitors spending more time on your website (and coming back for more!). The additional traffic will help generate more leads helping your business reach its full potential.

We believe brands that are well connected to their customers enjoy increased value, greater loyalty and improved acquisition. However, building a connected brand isn’t easy. If it were, more brands would be doing it. It takes a strong brand strategy and an equally strong plan to bring it to life. It takes access to data and insights that are essential to informed decision-making. It takes the right mix of disciplines to meet business needs while creating the optimum customer experience. And, it requires a holistic approach, using bought, earned, owned and shared media to create a fully integrated engagement plan. But, where to start?
Start with a plan
Some relationships begin with clients asking us for a campaign or technology solution. That’s a great place to start the conversation. But we won’t brainstorm a creative idea or push a single pixel until we’ve set ourselves up for success with a solid brand strategy and a fully developed engagement plan. That way, we know we’re all working towards the right business objectives and success metrics – established in consultation with your key stakeholders.
Strategy never stops
Meeting business objectives month after month takes follow-through. That’s why we don’t see strategy as a finite deliverable that ends the moment our creative teams starts creating. On the contrary, we’re just getting started. We’ll be there for you to provide brand strategy, engagement planning and customer experience design day in and day out to make sure you stay ahead of the digital curve.
It’s not about the channel
If it’s digital, we do it. And, we can help you plan for it. We’re channel agnostic – our only commitment is to help you build a connected brand while achieving your marketing objectives and driving ROI. To do that, we’ll create a recommendation based not only on deep knowledge of each channel, but on your overall brand strategy and existing traditional media execution. Together, we can plan, implement and measure campaigns across channels to maximise ROI.
Full-service strategy and planning
We offer a full suite of strategic and planning services to help you connect with customers, from evaluating brand strengths and weaknesses to understanding how and why audiences engage to establishing goals and tactics for each campaign.
Evaluating, analysing and synthesising the personality and meaning of the brand to develop holistic strategic thinking.
Identifying the right mix of touchpoints and communication channels to accomplish the business and brand goals efficiently and effectively.
