“It’s refreshing to work with an agency with such a strong focus on product performance and profitability, accounting for product margin across paid search campaigns and adjusting CPAs accordingly. This means that we can step back from the day to day running of PPC campaigns, and focus our attention on growing our business, safe in the knowledge that our campaigns are profitable and streamlined.”
