CPC Campaign Management

Having practiced paid search management since Goto.com popularized this advertising method at the turn of the century, Captiva Marketing was essentially founded as a paid search management company.  Over the years, we have grown with the industry and are now one of the top paid search management companies in the U.S.

Our Approach

What we feel makes us most successful is that while most paid search management companies focus on dialing every element of a campaign to the Nth Degree, we know from experience that the vast majority of one's success and ROI with paid search is determined by a small number of variables.

By focusing our efforts in these areas, we have achieved incredible results and have managed approximately $100 million in ad spend in our history.

Common Paid Search Management Activities

While the work involved in managing a paid search campaign can vary greatly from one business to another, here are some of the common activities associated with managing a campaign.

Activities Most Critical to Success
From our experience, there are three key elements to achieving success with keyword advertising.



Understand business well enough to select the keyword phrases and matching methods that will provide the best ROI.



Develop ad copy that highlights our client's Unique Selling Points (USPs) and engage click-through from relevant searchers.



Ensure ads are aligned with landing pages that properly convey our client's marketing message and generate conversion.
