I Want To Replace Dex Media For Web Site & Search Marketing
Dex Media (formerly SuperMedia) has been pretty aggressively selling web site and online search marketing services for the past few years. It makes sense – interest in and spending on traditional yellow pages type advertising has been steadily declining for over a decade now. They have to shift their revenue model somewhere, so why not web sites and search engine marketing?
If It Sounds Too Good To Be True…
They probably came to you with an offer that seemed just too good to be true – for about what you’d been spending on yellow pages advertising, they would offer you not only placements in all of the books you’d previously appeared in, but probably a few others and for essentially no additional cost to you* they would take over your web site, search engine optimization, local search and AdWords advertising. You could just sit back and watch the leads come rolling in!
You know what they say, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Just google “Dex Media Complaints” or “Dex Media Reviews” and you will find that you’re not alone if you were completely dissatisfied or even angry about your experience with Dex Media or Super Media as a PPC or search marketing company.
Most complaints have a common theme – customers were promised the sun, the moon and the stars and Dex Media or Super Media failed to deliver on those promises. Or, even worse, kept getting the clients to spend more and more money with their service with no tangible results to the businesses. Or, that contracts kept auto-renewing beyond the originally agreed upon time period and requests to cancel were ignored. You can read more here if you’re interested.
There Is Some Good News!
Not all paid search agencies or consultants operate like Dex Media / Super Media. In fact, most that we know absolutely do not! We certainly don’t and can offer you the following:
#1 Ownership of your account
At Neptune Moon, we firmly believe that our clients should be in control of all of their accounts and grant access to us, as their trusted service provider.
Since you will be the account’s owner, you will have the ability at any time to log in to the account and see what is happening in the actual AdWords interface. We provide insight and analysis for you as to what is happening in the account, but at any time, you can log in and see it for yourself!
#3 True Partnership
Part of the reason we have such long-term relationships with so many of our clients is that we view ourselves as part of their team. It’s our job to bring new ideas to the table as the landscape of digital marketing is constantly shifting. We help clients put their message in front of people who are most likely to buy what it is that you’re selling!
#4 Clear Pricing For What You Actually Get
The scope of work to be performed is clearly outlined, as is the price for the work. We also separate our strategy, implementation and management fees from the actual money you will pay to AdWords for the actual clicks. So you will always know exactly how much you are spending on the clicks themselves, as well as professional management services.
