Wpromote has been an industry leader in pay-per-click (PPC) campaign management since the company’s inception. By leveraging superior proprietary software and expertly trained campaign developers, Wpromote creates and manages PPC campaigns in the most proficient way possible to help clients achieve their goals faster and more efficiently.


Wpromote’s Advantages
  • Proprietary Technology
  • Daily Account Management
  • Extensive Keyword Research & Analysis

Expertise & Technology

Wpromote uses advanced proprietary software to manage large-scale PPC campaigns. The software, EssentialPPC, is constantly improved to give clients the greatest competitive edge in the world of digital advertising. EssentialPPC allows Wpromote to efficiently increase the number and quality of PPC leads our clients receive. We can also streamline client PPC advertising campaigns, maximize every advertising dollar spent, and produce the biggest possible benefit for clients advertising on the Internet.

Keyword Research & Analysis

Our proprietary keyword research tools will ensure that the client's PPC Management campaign encompasses every possible and relevant search term, which may include the following:

  • Product SKUs
  • Abbreviations
  • Negative Keywords
  • Brand/Product Terms
  • Regional Keywords
  • Misspellings
  • Market Trends
  • Matching Types
  • Competitor Campaigns
  • Search Volume Analysis

By utilizing different matching types and adding in locations, abbreviations and all related keywords, the campaign will target users who are specifically searching for the client's unique product or service. Through creative management and landing page development, we can focus more on capturing the lead/sale by creating a better ad match and sending to the appropriate landing page.

Geographic Targeting

PPC Management campaigns can be targeted towards users in the geographic location that our clients serve. PPC budgets are never wasted on visitors that are outside the targeted location, which allows for precise and efficient spending.

Custom Conversion & ROI Tracking

Wpromote has the ability to track all aspects of the campaign's effectiveness. Wherever applicable, Wpromote implements advanced ROI tracking software to trace all leads, sales and downloads, as well as the ad creative and keyword that generated the conversion. Wpromote's Call Tracking service allows us to track all calls coming through a client's website. In addition, Wpromote can create individual phone numbers for Google, Yahoo and Bing or even for groupings of keywords.

Ad Copy Analysis & Testing

Ad copy analysis and testing is a highly useful, yet often overlooked component of effective PPC management. Even minor adjustments in ad copy can create dramatic results. Through Wpromote's exhaustive ad copy research and A/B ad copy testing techniques, we maximize clickthrough rates in order to obtain the lowest overall cost per conversion.

Dedicated Management

Wpromote's dedicated PPC Management team will ensure that your account is as efficient as possible by scrutinizing the frequency, type and amount of clicks received and continually evaluating the success of keywords. Wpromote also monitors bids, positions, clicks, conversions and keyword activity, 24 hours a day.

5 Secrets to Selecting Highly Effective SEO and PPC Keywords

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) refers to the ongoing process of increasing the visibility of a website in the organic search results for any particular keyword or set of keywords, resulting in increased exposure and traffic.


Wpromote’s Advantages
  • Proprietary Technology
  • Extensive Keyword Research & Analysis
  • Integrated SEO Approach (Synergy w/ Social and PPC Campaigns)
  • US Based
  • Active Account Management
Keyword Analysis

Keyword analysis/research is a prerequisite to any successful SEO campaign. It is the process of determining which queries people use when they search. For any given product or service, some keywords are more relevant than others. How competitive a particular keyword is should also be taken into account because it will determine the amount of resources necessary to rank for that specific term. Keyword popularity, relevance and competition are evaluated during the process of keyword research.

301 Redirects

When an old/outdated page on a site is no longer being used, you'll normally want to send visitors to a new version of the page. The "search engine friendly" way to do this is to employ a 301 redirect, which will automatically route the visitor to the new version of the page. This is considered "search engine friendly" because the 301 moved to a new location. A 301 status indicates that the database should be updated to include the new page location instead of the old one, and any "link love" or page authority that the old page had will be credited to the new page.

URL Structure

A site's URL (Uniform Resource Locator) is what you see in your browser's address bar, normally beginning with either http or https. URL structure refers to the way that addresses are constructed across the site. Some sites utilize simple, logical URLs that, when read by a human, indicate what the page is about. Other sites utilize complex URLs with multiple parameters that mean nothing to a human. Simple URLs that include keywords (and don't utilize unnecessary parameters) will result in better search engine rankings.


A sitemap is a file that tells the search engines about all of the pages on a website. Webmasters create sitemaps to assist the search engines in discovering (and indexing) the content that they want people to be able to find. Generally the search engines find internal pages by "crawling" through the navigation and via external links, but sitemaps exist to supplement those page discovery methods. There are two types of sitemaps; XML sitemaps and HTML sitemaps. XML sitemaps are built to assist search engine spiders in crawling and indexing the pages of a site. Since the XML format is written for search engine bots, it's also important to have an HTML sitemap. An HTML sitemap is an actual page on your site that links to all of the important pages. It outlines the structure of the site and is intended to assist your visitors in finding the content that they're looking for.

Webmaster Tools

Google Webmaster Tools (GWT) is a free service that provides webmasters with useful data and services that can be used to make their website(s) work more harmoniously with Google. GWT can be used to submit sitemap files, view search queries where your site is listed as a result, see which sites link to yours, view (and set) crawl rate and much more.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics (GA) is a free service that gathers information about the visitors of any site that the GA code is installed on. Once a webmaster installs Analytics on their site, they can view a variety of useful data such as how visitors found the site, what pages on the site they visited while there, how long they stayed for, where they are located, what operating system/browser/screen resolution they're using and more. Analytics users can also track sales and conversions by creating "goals".

Onsite Optimization

Onsite optimization (or internal optimization) refers to the process of adjusting elements on a website in such a way that it's viewed favorably by the search engines. These elements include (but are not limited to) the URL, title tag, header tags, body text, internal anchor text, image filenames and alt tags. When these elements of a page are used correctly, a site stands a much greater chance of performing well in the search engines.

Offsite Optimization

Offsite optimization (or external optimization) refers to tasks that take place on sites other than your own in order to increase your rankings. These tasks include processes such as link building, managing social media profiles, competitor analysis and monitoring, and creating and maintaining profiles for local search.

Wpromote's Advantages
  • Focus on Optimizing Messaging

  • Wide Range of Experience — Direct Response, eCommerce & B2C
  • In-House Design Team
  • Custom Tab Creation — Forms, Contests & "Like" Gates
  • eCommerce Integration Within Facebook Page
  • Integration with SEO & Email Campaigns

With over 1 billion users, Facebook is obviously a force to be reckoned with. Regardless of your business type you should have an optimized Facebook page that is constantly updated and always engaging to your fan base. Important elements to be sure to optimize include:

  • Cover Photo
  • Profile Picture
  • Milestones
  • Pins
  • Highlights
  • Vanity URL
  • Custom Tabs
  • Photos
  • About Tab

Of course all messages and posts should also be crafted to best engage your unique audience.


From your Twitter bio to the skin to the actual tweets, it is important that your Twitter account take on a persona that truly engages existing followers and gains new ones. Popular Twitter profiles use hashtags (#) and replies (@) appropriately, monitor tweets and reply in a timely manner and tweet about more than just product releases and updates. It is also a good idea to link between your Twitter profile and your other social profiles.


If you do not have any company videos, it is time to consider creating them. Even if the videos you create do not seem interesting or viral, chances are there are potential customers that would prefer to watch a video than read a website. Which makes sense considering YouTube is the second most popular search engine, with people watching millions of videos daily. Consider creating How-To videos, turning blog posts into video blogs, doing product demos, taping testimonials or creating a commercial to showcase your brand. All of these can be posted on a custom YouTube channel.


Pinterest is an ideal place to expand your online presence. In a short period of time Pinterest has proved its value and dominance in the Social space by becoming the third most popular social network based on referral traffic and active daily users. It has surpassed LinkedIn and is only behind Facebook and Twitter. Its popularity is due in large part to the fact that people prefer to see instead of read. As an extremely visual site it is more engaging and prompts more purchase activity than any other Social site.
