Search Engine Marketing(SEM)

Search Engine Marketing or paid search placement is growing faster than any other segment of digital marketing. Search marketing campaigns when combined with remarketing and retargeting techniques, can be highly effective. According to two recently released reports on e-commerce, online retail sales in the United States alone are expected to grow $40-$50 billion each year for the next five years, reaching somewhere between $430 billion and $500 billion by 2017(Source: eMarketer, April 2013; Total U.S. Retail Sales). Since most people start their online shopping with search engines, it offers a huge opportunity for small businesses.

Data gathered through research shows that online marketing is too important to ignore. As more and more customers become comfortable buying online, search engines and niche online shopping portals are going to be critical for successful marketing campaigns.

For most small businesses, a Pay Per Click (PPC) campaign is a quick and most affordable way to drive high quality targeted traffic. At Amplimark, we have Google and Bing certified professionals with years of experience in every aspect of PPC advertising – from planning to execution and ROI measurement.
