Buy SEM for Your Local Advertisers

The average American small business gets 17 sales calls per month. One of them might be from a local media company like yours, but the rest will be from people trying to sell SEM or Google AdWords. Our point: small businesses are getting the message that they need to invest in search ads, but they also can't afford the $3,000+ per month it takes to run an effective SEM campaign capable of moving the needle for their business.

That's where you come in. Offering SEM helps you protect your current account base from digital agencies eager to steal them away.

By using our plug-and-play platform to run SEM, you can offer smaller campaigns to new and existing customers. SEM is a low-margin business, but our automated platform makes it an incredibly cost-effective way to bring in more business that you can up-sell into higher-margin advertising down the road. You serve your base, expand your reach, increase your relevance and because we automate it, exert almost zero effort doing it.

Offer more with less
