FAQ

A small business marketing agency partners with you to establish and reach your next big business growth milestones through effective, multi-channel marketing. They apply best practices and proven tactics to increase form fills, purchases, click-throughs, and sign-ups across all your web and app properties. That includes your website, app store listings, PPC ads, mobile ads, and other forms of digital marketing like gated content and landing pages.

At Cardinal Digital Marketing, the process begins by conducting a customized study of your business, your goals, your target audience, and your messaging. We’ll figure out how to set up the right audience, platforms, ads, and spend to test, for your approval. Then we’ll begin an experiment. We’ll iterate on those trials. We’ll expand on what’s working, and stop what isn’t working. We’ll never stop watching conversion rate performance, making changes and improvements to increase success. Once your advertising and marketing content is converting successfully, on budget, we keep going. We’ll keep improving, even after your marketing campaigns are performing splendidly.

Conversion rate optimization is the art and science of ensuring your digital marketing channels are paying off at the best possible rates of return. You invest hard-won money to get your website running. You also pay for SEO planning, content creation, search engine ads, social media marketing, and all kinds of other tactics, just to get more eyes on your digital brand. But all of that investment is meaningless if those site visits and ad clicks don’t turn into new customers or sales leads. CRO is the final piece of the puzzle.

The Cardinal team member assigned to your company will work to understand your voice and brand through the initial discovery phase. At that time, our agents will examine your existing web pages, ads, email marketing campaigns, and other marketing tactics. They’ll also learn your audience, products, style, and tone. Based on that new familiarity with your business, your Cardinal team can create all your social media ad content, website content, PPC ad content, and lead forms for you. You don’t have to get involved unless you have a strong inclination to do it in-house. However, if you happen to have a knack for copywriting or design, or have your own creative team, we’re more than happy to work with them directly to bring your new campaigns to life.

As a small business marketing agency we pride ourselves on knowing you’re getting an amazing ROI for your marketing dollars. We want you to stick with Cardinal because you’re seeing the results you’ve been looking for, not because you’re locked into a contract. That being said, it does take a few solid months of planning, building, and testing to establish a steady pattern of success across all your channels. So we ask you to sign an initial three-month contract to set a plan in motion. After we’ve established a reliable strategy, we can work out the terms of our contract month to month or annually. Clients are usually so pleased with our results that they are thrilled to sign annually, but we can work with you where you are.

If your website is not responsive (or mobile-friendly), not SEO-optimized (i.e. invisible to Google), or otherwise not ready for an uptick in traffic and conversions, we’ll help you get on track with those big transformations first. You can sit back and watch us work, or be completely hands-on at every step. Your level of involvement in actual web development is entirely up to your taste and skills. Then the Cardinal team will help with the smaller details. We’ll apply best practices for improving your conversion rates across the website. Most of the changes are done with basic CSS and Javascript, and our team can work with your developers to ensure that there are no conflicts or major interruptions in visitor experience.

Your dedicated agent here at Cardinal will help you set an ideal system to measure conversions, to match your business goals and predicted performance increases. At first we’ll work to optimize your content, timing, and audience targeting. Then your Cardinal partners will keep improving the conversion funnel until they achieve the numbers you agreed on. Reports will become available each day through custom dashboards. You’ll also receive personal updates from your Cardinal agent, and you’ll know exactly when all that digital marketing work starts to pay off big-time.
