We’re not just the people reading the expert how-to posts, we’re the ones writing them! This doesn't mean we always know everything, but that we're not afraid to confidently move forward with innovative ideas and management practices to keep your accounts on the cutting edge of PPC evolution.
We understand that tactics direct strategy (yes, you read that right). In the fast-paced space that PPC marketing exists in, agility in implementing ideas and experimentation are just as important in succeeding at meeting a client's goals. A macro-directive ("we're at A, we need to get to B") may initially sound actionable but may require someone that can visualize that same plan as resembling something more akin to A to Z. ZATO day in and day out, thinks tactically when personalizing their approach to your account. When you hire us you're not getting a puppet, you're getting an partner.
We see ourselves as strategic partners, rather than employees. Practically, this looks like a long-term collaborative relationship with you and your business knowledge, and us and our PPC knowledge working together at the table.
We are purposefully small. We aren’t embarrassed by our size, we are proud of it. If you partner with ZATO, you won’t be one of 150 accounts managed by an intern. We will be obsessed with your account’s success and doing what we can in our sphere, to push you towards success.
5. You Need To Be Found
It's getting harder than it used to be to be placed well on the internet. ZATO excels at targeting the right people. We identify your ideal target audience by getting to know your business in our onboarding timeframe, and beyond. We then help you find the right people and bid intelligently on the right position and placement to make sure you're getting the best bang for your buck out of Google AdWords, Bing Ads, Facebook Ads, LinkedIn Ads, Pinterest Ads, and more.
6. You’re Busy
We recognize that you likely have a million things to do on your Slack channel or tasklist... and that's just for today. At ZATO, we take work off your plate by actively managing accounts seamlessly on our end and limiting your involvement to the strategic, needle-moving conversations. We are constantly at work behind the scenes, trying to make you look better. We’re not a fire and forget agency and that comes through in a million small ways, that you might not even notice.
7. You Need To Justify Your Investment
We get it, you can't just spend unlimited budget and whether it is your VP, CEO, or board, you need to account for every dollar invested and demonstrate profitability and growth. At ZATO, we work with you to create custom reports for your needs. These are created based on the KPIs you and your team are most interested in seeing that will ultimately drive real action and business growth.
8. You Want To Put Your Best Foot Forward
Let’s face it, at the end of the day, our work is reflected through you… to your superiors or to your customers. We understand that, and it’s why we value great relationships so much. We’re in it to make you look great through good reports, quick communication response, and business growth. We can't stress enough how much we understand this, and that comes through in our communication and work.
9. You Don’t Want A Novice
Believe it or not, we are purposefully small. We aren’t embarrassed by our size (there are only 3 of us), we are proud of it. If you partner with ZATO, you won’t be one of 150 accounts managed by an intern. We will be obsessed with your account’s success and doing what we can in our power of influence, to push you towards success. We don’t have a core business goal of quintupling in size by next month by overwhelming ourselves with too many accounts. We are people who love our jobs, love our families, love life, and we don’t want to ruin all that by pushing too hard for that next dollar. This doesn’t mean we don’t understand hard work, it means we won’t sacrifice hard work on your account just because another newer client comes along.
10. You Need Measurable Results
One thing ZATO prides itself on is measurement. Bar none, one of the first things we do in your account is check your conversion tracking and make sure we can find a way to see progress right from the get go. Whether you're tracking marketing qualified leads or you're wanting to sell more fidget spinners, you can trust ZATO to take your key performance indicators seriously.
