Antennas Direct

Antennas Direct has evolved from an online seller of TV antennas in 2003 to one of the leading suppliers in its category selling to some of the largest retailers in the world. As the company looked to continue its success, a comprehensive campaign was necessary to allow the company to capitalize on its past success and ensure future growth.


It Starts with the Strategy

To reach the company’s business goals, a strategy was developed that focused on market penetration to sell more products to existing markets. A deep analysis of the company’s market was performed to determine how the company’s products stacked up against the competition. Armed with this information, an organized and detailed digital marketing strategy was formulated to serve as the blueprint for all aspects of the campaign.



Synergized Online Advertising

Collaboration with the company and third-party vendors resulted in an effective online advertising campaign featuring pay per click text ads, shopping ads, display banners, and video ads. The campaign leveraged a combination of keyword/contextual/interest targeting, managed placements, and retargeting strategies to create an optimal result for Antennas Direct. Structured data snippets were added to the website to qualify the company for Google Trusted Stores ratings as well.

Helpful Online Tools

Given the company’s dedication to helpful customer support, several areas of the site were enhanced to establish the site as a resource for antenna buyers. Interactive tools such as the transmitter locator and antenna selector helped customers to select the right product to meet their needs and install it in an optimal fashion. The cord cutting guide and online reviews were added as well. These tools were also leveraged by the company’s customer service team – the Connection Crew – to make their service more efficient and useful. To date, thousands have utilized these tools, which has contributed to the online store’s increased revenue.

Enhancing the Online Experience

In order to improve the overall experience of the website, a cross-device, responsive site design was created and implemented. All technical facets of the website were updated including content management system, online store, and blog platform. Critical pages such as the homepage featured embedded video to provide a modern introduction to the product line and illustrate the practical benefits.

Recruitment Fraud Alert

A new identity theft scam has hit the recruitment industry. It has come to our attention that fraudulent emails are being sent by fake companies posing as recruiters or posing as an employee of an organization, like Captiva, to recruit candidates.

These unofficial requests stem from Gmail accounts or fake LinkedIn/Indeed accounts and not from official company accounts. They direct users to attend a Google Hangout interview and then proceed to interview a candidate while asking for personal information. At Captiva Marketing, our first step in the applicant screening process includes an email from an official Captiva Marketing email account to schedule a traditional phone call. This request will come from an official Captiva Marketing email address and not a address. We do not request a Google Hangout nor do we use a Gmail account with our recruiting process. Initial communications will not request sensitive information, including but not limited to social security numbers, birth dates, bank information, etc. during our interview process. While giving out personal information to organizations, please be diligent. If you have any concerns about a request coming from Captiva Marketing, please contact us at 314-822-3656 and ask for Melissa Berner.
