Well, we were financial auditors, skilled and trained to identify inaccuracies in financial documents. This training produced an innate ability to quickly recognize where companies were missing the mark.
We decided to apply these auditing skills to internet marketing, and quickly found out that we were good at it. Specifically, we were really good at auditing competitor marketing efforts, reverse engineering their success, and identifying opportunities for our clients to capitalize.
We offer digital marketing audits because companies find a lot of value in our service, and we enjoy helping businesses succeed online.
Plus, it's a helluva lot more interesting than tying out balance sheets.
Here's what we evaluate in our digital marketing audits:
Checklist components of our SEO site audit include Indexing, Accessibility, Site Architecture, User Experience, Keyword Analysis, Link Analysis, Mobile Optimization, On Page Optimization, Content Evaluation and Social Media.
Checklist components of our PPC audit include Advertising Research, Keyword Research, Quality Score, Click-Through Rate (CTR), Ad Text Optimization, Landing Page Optimization, Wasted Spend, Account Activity, Budget and Tracking.
Checklist components of our email marketing audit include Subject Lines, Sender Name, Personalization, Body Copy, Image, Call To Action, Mobile Optimization, Frequency, Send Time and Automation.
Social Media Audit
Checklist components of our social media marketing audit include Competition, Listening, Customers, Social Advertising, Community, Copywriting, Image, Frequency, Send Time and Automation.
We do. Each digital marketing audit we conduct analyzes four key components of a digital marketing strategy, including SEO, PPC, Email, and Social Media.
