Once you've actually bought internet media and been responsible for Google Analytics reporting, you see creative differently.

Unless your primary interest is branding, iit's all about conversions. A website shouldn't primarily be a brochure, It needs to be a powerful sales and lead generation tool. Focus needs to be on getting forms filled and phone calls made. Complementary email campaigns need to bring prospects to the website with the right mindset.

To do this effectively, one needs to have creative skills integrated with a high level of web marketing knowledge. I know how to do this and how to use the tools that make for more better performing campaigns:

Google Analytics                              Facebook Ad Manager / Pages

Google Tag Manager                       Screaming Frog SEO  

AdWords Search                              Spyfu / Swydo                    

AdWords Display                              Act-On Marketing Automation

It's not creative unless it sells.

This rubric from an agency creative director in the 1970's is as true today as it was then. Maybe more so because today's web Key Performance Indicators have become the unforgiving judges and juries.

 

A/B testing--whether for landing pages, web ads, email campaigns, or direct mail pieces--still shows that creative makes the difference.

My expertise can make a decided difference.
