Paid Search Management

Accessing the Critical Moment with Overdrive SEM

What is the critical moment? The critical moment is the exact instant when a consumer is searching for what you sell on their most personal devices. It’s where new customers can be rapidly acquired and current customers can be retained when they are thinking about leaving. It is where your brand must be found, which is at the top of the page at all times.

Overdrive search engine marketing (SEM) enables our clients to identify and own the most profitable critical moments that happen in search engines every day. We zero in on the right search terms that dominate and get people to convert when we capture their attention. Our end-to-end SEM programs help our clients grow their pipelines and bottom lines through the power and immediacy of paid search.

SEM and Conversation Rate Optimization (CRO)

A paid search program’s success is dependent on your keyword ad copy and, of course, your landing pages. Clicks are only as good as your website’s ability to convert. So a search is also about what you say to people when they are looking for what you sell. It’s about capturing consumers’ immediate wants needs and telling them exactly what they need to hear so that they engage and buy from you.
