AdAgencyOnline.Net is a free automotive advertising resource / networking portal that provides a forum to present and review cutting edge automotive advertising vendors and applications to the automotive advertising industry.
Philip Zelinger, the President of Ad Agency Online, L.L.C., (AAOL), and host of AdAgencyOnline.Net’s blog talk radio station – WAAOL, All Automotive Advertising News All The Time
– interviewed Sergio Alvarez, the COO of Ai Media Group on the station’s blog talk radio show “Automotive Advertising Experts”
to review their unique S.E.M. services. Philip and Sergio discussed best practices in Search Engine Marketing, (S.E.M.) in a problem / solution forum during the blog talk radio show that was broadcasted live on WAAOL on Friday, May 15th, 2009 and is available as a downloadable podcast at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/adagencyonline .
Philip described the added value provided by Ai Media Group that earned them consideration as a “preferred automotive advertising vendor” on AdAgencyOnline.Net,
“I have always prioritized Search Engine Optimization, (S.E.O.), over Search Engine Marketing, (S.E.M.), because of my preference to develop long term branding messages for my auto dealer clients vs. short term digital marketing campaigns. My goal has always been to provide lasting “top of the mind awareness” to a targeted audience to build frequency through consistency to insure retention of the message. That said, I also recognize the need to jump start online marketing campaigns for new accounts through the use of Pay Per Click, (PPC), digital marketing campaigns often directed to specialized landing pages or micro-sites to extend the online footprint for my auto dealer clients who demand instant and verifiable results.”
Mr. Zelinger continued in his evaluation of Ai Media Group by describing the unique aspects of their S.E.M. services
, “My interest in Ai Media Group was sparked by their proprietary software application that relies on an algorithmic formula to manage and monitor PPC campaigns in a scalable fashion providing efficiencies in the process that is not offered by other outsourced S.E.M. vendors that I have used. Of course the process is not completely automated; which is a good thing since the science of S.E.M. is best supported when it is managed and monitored by an experienced professional who knows what to look for when evaluating the volumes of data that is required to conduct a comprehensive PPC campaign. I was impressed by the knowledge and experience of the Ai Media Group’s support team and the diverse background that Sergio Alvarez represents. I have always valued people over product and price and I am confident that Ai Media Group provides the right mix of both.”
