Our Paid Search Strategy Process

Align Goals + Objectives

We begin engagements with a discovery phase to understand your business, goals, target customers, and the resources you have. Then we map your lead-to-sales journey to understand what your audience is searching for at each step.

Build the Foundation

Next, we research your buyers to examine why, when and how they interact with you or your competitors. Sourcing insights from customers influences a creative strategy that will resonate. Then we build a plan for how success will be measured, based on your digital marketing objectives

Launch Your Campaign

We audit your current paid search efforts, present and execute a strategy aligned with your marketing goals, and benchmark early performance against comparable businesses or industries.

Evolve + Optimize

Finally, testing and continuous feedback loops with Analytics teams help iterate and evolve your campaign over time. At this point, we’re able to conduct structured tests and complex analyses to optimize performance.

Types of Paid Search Services

Since the inception of Google Adwords in 2000, paid search has given marketers an opportunity to get in front of buyers at the point of purchase intent. Silverback’s platform experts, analytics specialists, and in-house researchers and copywriters collaborate to deliver paid search campaigns that maximize results and drive higher returns.

Frequently Asked Questions

Silverback doesn’t restrict our paid search service to one specific medium. We recognize that searches primarily happen via Google and as a result, we prioritize that platform. However, we still make sure to research other sites like Bing, who are also worth incorporating into your budget for wider audience reach. 

Over the past few years, we have learned and adapted from working in silos, since they become restrictive and create points of overlap. As a result, we reorganized our agency and created the Troop structure. Under a Troop, channel experts work collectively on the same clients, sharing information and aligning strategies. Visibility across both organic and paid is factored in when crafting and optimizing your strategy. This interdisciplinary approach results in a whole that is truly greater than the sum of the individual parts. Silverback’s digital marketing services allow internal teams to work as one, communicating without the burden of silos, to boost your bottom line.

Organic and paid search can work together to optimize your efforts and budget. Organic search is best for targeting longer-tail keywords that are higher up in the funnel. Paid search excels at conversion-orientated, intent-driven keywords. Additionally, if you already rank #1 organically for some keywords, you can prioritize your budget in other areas as you already show up at the top of the SERP. 

Yes. Bidding on branded keywords is an investment, but it will avoid the possibility of your competitors taking your potential customers who are searching for your business directly.
