The first year on the job


Is AdWords right for You?

If you are passionate about the Internet, marketing and business then you will fit well into our agency. However PPC is generally more geeky and techie. It is highly analytical and if you are good at spreadsheets and numbers you will love AdWords and PPC.  If you already buy and sell on eBay you may also have the right skills or if you considered a career in banking, accounting or business then you may do well.

If you are very creative or spend a lot of time blogging then you would probably not enjoy this type of work.

Finally you need to have a commercial or business brain – we use Clients’ hard-earned money to try and make the maximum return on their investment. So you need to understand offers, ads and marketing in order to help get their ads attention, clicks and conversions!

Any Questions?

Please feel free to call us (0116 298 7496) or email any of the team – we would love to hear from you!
