One of the challenges for small businesses looking to ‘go digital’ is the complexities of all the platforms associated with paid search, display and paid social.

Add in the complications of knowing how to target, what are the right keywords, how to implement a bidding strategy, etc.

Then knowing how to effectively measure its effectiveness so they don’t end up wasting a ton of money.

It’s not surprising they find it daunting and end up passing it out to agencies.

What if there was one platform which combined them and took out the complexities?

Offering a ‘one stop shop’ which helped them create, execute, optimise and report on campaigns in the one place. Supported by proprietary AI technologies which gave intelligent suggestions each step of the journey.

No need to learn the various dashboards and interfaces for Facebook, Google, TikTok, Instagram, Snapchat and others. It’s all built into an ‘on rails’ experience. Taking you through each step of the process in a simple to understand approach. Removing the mystery and confusion.

The platform includes keyword suggestions and targeting strategies, including geo-location. Copy suggestions and calls to action. It even has a creative toolkit which plugs into a variety of stock image platforms. Able to pull down a shortlist of suggested creative, based on each campaigns unique elements which are most likely to connect with the target audience.

It will even help you create and integrate campaign landing pages, and feed them into the ecommerce website. All without needing any technical knowledge at all from the person creating it.

Powering all this is a back end AI solution baked into the platform. That AI is also a powerful reporting tool, which gives transparency and clarity to businesses on exactly where their media spend is going and the ROI derived from it – by campaign and by channel. Giving complete understanding of what’s working and what’s not.

The platform you’ll be responsible for removes the complexities of digital advertising and ecommerce for small businesses, essentially giving you a tool which could replace the need for companies to spend a fortune on agencies or need to hire dedicated specialists to manage their digital marketing needs.
