My name is Brendan Strauss. I was an intern here for quite a while, and I was given an opportunity to really apply myself not at the intern level, but beyond that. My initial interview, I was asked what I know about the search side of advertising and SEO, and I was able to say one thing, I knew what SEO stood for. Really, it was a steep learning curve, but everything I've learned has been here. Once I really got SEO down pat, I was given the opportunity to learn the other side, which is paid search.
Like most SEO campaigns, our story begins with a large client problem. A major North American transportation company's website was negatively impacted by Google's Penguin update, resulting in a loss of the majority of their non branded organic rankings. Organic traffic and revenue plummeted year over year as a result. Direct Agents, with the help of the Bright Edge platform, began this company's SEO engagement in 2015 to help regain this loss in traffic, rankings, and revenue.
At Direct Agents, digital video has become a vital segment in our omni-channel approach. We strive to educate marketers on how to leverage YouTube advertising for the most effective direct response campaigns.
