Sponsored Results That Lead to Actual Results

Effective paid media campaigns start with a great story and grow with great data. We leverage both to make your paid search and social campaigns a powerful tool for marketing your film, agency, or project. While earned media and organic results cost less money, they take more time — and you must cultivate and engage your audience. What are the benefits of paid media in digital marketing? You can reach people you never thought to reach: potential viewers and consumers who are already searching for what you have to offer! To work, you must find the right mix of keywords, user intent, remarketing, graphics, and messaging. That’s where we come in.

Our Paid Media Services

Thorough Audience and Competitor Research

Paid search and social campaigns require two key insights: (a) what your target audience is seeking and (b) where your competitors are ranking ahead of you. Once we know those, we can craft a powerful and cost-effective strategy to put your project in front of the right people.

Enticing Ad Design and Assets

A picture says a thousand words, and that’s especially true in PPC ads and social posts. We translate your project’s brand story and core messages into powerful visuals that entice clicks. 

Optimized Copy and CTA Messaging

If an ad comes across a feed and no one clicks, did it even exist? Paid media campaigns are only as good as their call-to-action. Our team of brand strategists, copywriters, and conversion experts work together to develop ads that will convert — and if they don’t, we test and tweak until they do. Split-testing is a core part of our recipe for paid media success.

Ad Audience and Lookalike Development

Once we know your ideal viewer, we serve them targeted ads that tap into their buying journeys. Already have an engaged social media following or active visitor presence for your website? Perfect! We’ll translate those into ad audiences that deliver people right into your fundraising, purchase, or conversion funnel. 

Cross-Platform Programming

Just like your film or project itself, paid media channels cross boundaries and appeal to different people in different ways. With our cross-platform, brand-oriented approach to PPC and social promotion, we’ll make sure you cut through the noise on all the right platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, Google, YouTube, and more.

Performance Tracking

Every brand’s formula for paid media success is a little bit different. Our robust analytics and continual testing enable us to find the best mix for you — then, wash-rinse-repeat as we continue to grow your brand’s reputation and drive leads into your pipeline. 

How Your Business Can Benefit From Our Paid Media Services

With thousands of ads out there, how do you choose the right paid media language? Through careful keyword selection, defined audiences, and understanding the best placement of your company’s advertisements, we help streamline your marketing funnel process by getting in front of the right customers.

The team at Vanquish Media always knocks it out of the park for my filmmaker clients who need help in promoting their films to the world.
