Digital Direct Marketing

Modern digital databases allow even more precise targeting than earlier databases.   You have the choice of email, text and traditional phone/postal records, but now with more specific selection criteria than ever before.



You can't go past keeping your name up there with a regular enewsletter.  We set up many clients with email marketing systems and templates, that are easy for you to manage with minor input from us going forward.  The system comes with plugine for your Facebook and Twitter pages, as well as a tidy "subscribe" module you can add to your website footer. Above is an example of our own enewsletter template.  Subscribe below to see it in action!

Digital news of the month.

Google Green Ads!

Not long ago Google changed the colour of their ads from yellow to green, you may remember the "Ads" symbol on the first couple of lines of results indicating an advertisement; yes that is what has been changed. You might ask "this is not a major change, why is it important?"

Now the ads are very similar to the organic search results, this means number of clicks on the ads can potentially increase. This comes a month after Google started to show more ads on top and bottom of the first search result page. One might say, Google is looking to make more money and help more business to be found through ads. Yet comparing to other search engines such as Yahoo and Bing, Google's green ads are easier to spot.

Google launched green ads first in USA and then in Europe, interestingly enough the results are showing some slight change in the click through rates (CTR) on the new design, maybe a good news to advertisers to get more traffic for their money after all.
