Edinburgh, United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 10, 2009 -- Edinburgh based pay-per-click specialist, Attacat announces that their latest qualified Google Advertising Professional is Hannah Gibson, who joined the firm in the summer after graduating from Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen with a publishing degree.
Tim Barlow, Attacat MD says, âHannah passed her Google advertising exam with a score of over 90% (pass mark 75%). Of course, this is the expected standard for all Attacat account managers so we werenât surprised about her high score!â
Hannah says, âIâve always been interested in advertising and online media. I was attracted to working with Attacat as they are in an exciting new industry and they provide the learning support to accelerate ahead. Publishing is increasingly migrating onto the Internet and I have the opportunity to be at the forefront of that under the guidance of one of Googleâs first authorised advertising professionals: Attacat MD, Tim Barlow.â
âI started on the Google Advertising Program from day 1 so that I could gain a better understanding of Google AdWords, managing client accounts, increasing click through rates and sales conversion rates. Itâs been a very intensive learning curve and I had to have a brain like a sponge to absorb all the new information, but I really enjoy it as we are always investigating new avenues.
âI am already managing two client accounts, working under the supervision of our senior account manager. One of these was a new venture from an established company. Although they used Google to set up the advertising, they had only managed to attract one customer to their site! Their business is now on a much more solid footing with around 60 sales a month coming from pay-per-click traffic. Iâve also built other new accounts on Google, for a client selling traditional toys and a bed & breakfast client, both of whom have seen a substantial increase in businessâ.
âItâs not unusual for us to nearly double sales on existing Google AdWords campaigns where the advertising spend is in the four figures. Thatâs especially true if the AdWords have been set up by the business owner, who has failed to produce any results. They have so many other things to deal with; they canât be expected to stay on top of their campaigns, continuously fine-tuning the way we do. Nor can they be expected to take on board the level of detail we do. Plus we have the agency tools to accelerate our performance. Itâs not surprising that we make a difference.â
âGiven the current economic climate, the only surprise is that more companies arenât reaching for professional expertise to drive sales up: after all, we do offer a no questions money-back guarantee on our fees. â
