Our OUTBOUND MARKETING strategies help you

create on-demand inquiries from pre-qualified clients.


We help you identify your target clients and marketing objective by establishing a strategy to place you in front of the right prospective clients at critical I want-to-know, I want-to-go, I want-to-do, and I want-to-buy moments. Capturing the data needed to target, acquire and grow your paid and organic audiences requires conducting a competitor, gap and keyword analysis. This ensure that any work done and money spent influencing, motivating and driving web traffic is in line with your clearly defined business objectives. It also critically ensures that keywords pursued are under budget.


Upon completion of the keyword analysis, we help segment customer search behaviour based on interest, expertise and desired outcome. Specifically, it means tying each search term (what) to an intention (so what) and conversion action (now what). At this point, we are able to tie terms to specific business objective and assign a value to them.


Once prospective search terms have been identified and categorized into related segments, we help create funnels. A funnel, simply put, is a series of pages that have a primary objective or outcome which is usually generating an online sale, booking request, phone calls, or online form submission. Our team has extensive experience both building and optimizing funnels and abides by the most up-to-date best practices. This expertise, in combination with a robust understanding of your business, ensures the user’s experience is both informative, barrier free and optimized for conversion.


In addition to the funnel, we help create a series of landing pages to target related search terms. The pages are designed to directly reflect the search terms they are related to. This is critical both to be sure that visitors are properly pre-framed so you get an optimal Quality Score. Quality Score is a number assigned by AdWords between 1 and 10 and reflects how relevant your ads, keywords, and landing page are to a person seeing your ad. Having a high Quality Score critically means that you pay less per click and per conversion!


Once the funnel and landing pages have been put into place, we help make search and display ads to correspond to the identified keywords. Each advertisement is developed and optimized to ensure both a high Quality Score and conversion rate. Once in place, the campaign is complete and ready for testing!


With the complete campaign in place, we are now in a position to set goals and assign a value. Analyzing your goals helps you measure performance, in concrete terms. By doing this constantly, your team can be sure that your efforts are not only worthwhile, but rewarded.
