I’m a huge believer in the diversification of traffic sources. In the world of digital marketing, there is only so much cost-effective search demand on major search engines. A winning strategy involves diversification across many search engines, ad networks, social networks, and so much more. In diversifying traffic, I recommend reaching out and testing different advertising networks. Today, I am thrilled to share one of my favorites (A PPC Ian Blog Sponsor), AdMedia. In addition to introducing this awesome ad network, I’m also thrilled to share a special promotion they are running with their Free $100 AdMedia Credit.
AdMedia is the Superior Precision Marketing Platform. Their network spans 1,000s of sites across a plethora of verticals, offering a multitude of ways to increase digital advertising traffic and conversions for your business.
I’m particularly impressed with AdMedia for two reasons. First, they have a really great team. You may recall that Francesca from AdMedia wrote this guest post here on PPC Ian just a few months ago. Second, AdMedia’s suite of advertising solutions is truly comprehensive. They’re more than just a contextual network. AdMedia offers solutions that target prospective customers from so many angles. Some examples:
- Contextual targeting based on keywords, subject matter, and the site’s theme.
- Advanced remarketing solutions that make it easy for customers to navigate back to your site.
- Really cool image overlay ads and intextual ads, products that make the overall site experience more interesting for publishers, advertisers, and consumers. Advertise to prospective customers in new and exciting ways outside the standard search and display campaigns.
- Thank you email advertising, 404 Bucks, and Ditto domains products. AdMedia offers a very clever and comprehensive suite of advertising opportunities. Chat with them today and learn new ways of advertising you may have not thought of before!
With their Free $100 AdMedia Credit, I highly recommend giving AdMedia a spin. It’s a super way to diversify and expand your digital marketing program.

Last week, I attended SMX West and bumped into my good friend Hillary Read from PPC Associates, Silicon Valley’s SEM Agency. PPC Associates is a great friend of yours truly, PPC Ian. From time to time, I have the pleasure of guest posting on the amazing PPC Associates blog, and today I wanted to share with you my latest guest post: A Landing Page Checklist For PPC Pros. This post went live last week on Wednesday, March 13th and wanted to highlight it here in case you have not seen it yet!
With ever increasing competition on Google AdWords and Bing Ads, how do you stay ahead? Well, you certainly need to be a world class campaign manager. You need to be on top of your game when it comes to keyword generation, account structure, match types, negative words, ad copy, bid strategy, beta testing, tracking, cross-channel advertising, reporting/analytics, and so much more. However, the lever that perhaps holds the most leverage is landing page testing. Increase your conversion rate and your media margin will immediately expand. You can either pocket the profits or reinvest them via bid increases. Often, it is advised to bid higher since you will get exponentially more traffic volume and oftentimes increased dollar margin, especially if you look at cross-channel attribution (although at slightly lower percentage margin). Thanks PPC Associates for the opportunity to guest post, make sure to head on over and read my guest post today!

I just wrote a guest post called Advanced Trademark Strategies For Large AdWords Advertisers on Acquisio’s blog. What is Acquisio? It’s the performance marketing platform of choice for large online advertising agencies.
When presented with the great opportunity to write a guest post, I opted to go with a highly tactical post for large online advertisers. Upon brainstorming a few topics, I narrowed in on trademarks, specifically your own brand name. When you’re a large advertiser, your own brand name is often one of your most profitable and important keywords. With such profitability and scale comes a ton of responsibility. Despite its importance, however, I feel like brand names are often placed on a “set it and forget it” mode. My post is meant to spark some creativity and excitement in taking your own brand name campaigns to the next level. Complete with 5 advanced tips, I encourage you to head on over to Acquisio’s blog today and check out my guest post. I put a lot of effort into this guest post, so I hope you enjoy it. Also, make sure to arrange a free demo today with Acquisio. They offer one of the most amazing SEM platforms around and are the platform of choice for SEM agencies. Thanks, Acquisio, for the opportunity to guest post!
