Boost Your Conversion Rate with Local, Smart Portland, OR PPC Management
But the key is “done well.” It is very possible to manage PPC in such a way that it doesn’t see the return that is really possible. Some business owners put too much trust in advertising algorithms because they don’t want to make a mistake. Some small marketing agencies do it all by hand to save money. But truly strategic PPC management – the kind that delivers optimum results – involves using all the tools of the trade combined with skilled and experienced human beings calling the shots. That’s what you get with Lithium’s Portland PPC management.
If you’re looking for a proven way to handle online marketing and get quick results, PPC may be the best choice for your business. It’s one of the oldest methods of digital advertising, and it’s still around because it works – though thanks to changes in technology allowing more ways to gather key data, PPC is now better than ever for advertisers.
Dollar for dollar, PPC is one of the most effective ways to get your message out to people who are likely to become customers. If that sounds like something your marketing plan could use – let us know.

Pay-Per-Click Done Well Provides Surprising Benefits
Because of its targeted nature, a well-managed PPC campaign can help you do more than boost direct sales. While increasing the volume of people coming to you for what you’re offering, you can also
- Build a mailing list
- Sign up users for future contact
- Get a product or service launched properly
- Acquire new, detailed information about your customer base
- Gain the resources to build a larger advertising campaign
Since PPC is so popular and effective, it’s a sure bet that your competitors have already thought about putting together a campaign. If you have a local or regional business, effective advertising can make all the difference. Reach out to the customers that might otherwise pass you by, and increase the amount of near point-of-sale advertising impressions that you make. With an effective campaign managed by an experienced team using the right tools to gather the data you need, you can see real returns on your investments and gain a real edge on the competition in Portland.

What Makes Lithium Marketing Different than Every Other Portland PPC & Google Ads Specialist?
Dedication to Your Success
The team at Lithium Marketing will do everything we can to ensure that you win. When you win, we win. If we think we can optimize your PPC campaign to make you more money and reduce your costs at the same time, even if it means we make less, we know that’s good all-around in the long run. We are dedicated to improving your bottom line.
A Small Marketing Company with the Tech of a Large Firm
Many small marketing agencies like ours attempt to manage PPC campaigns entirely through manual means in order to avoid paying for AI software. When business owners or employees attempt to run a PPC campaign with little prior experience, they may go entirely with automated options at the helm, like those services offered by Google. But we believe in a hybrid approach, where humans and computers bring their strengths to the table. People know what people want and can anticipate how to best market your business. Machines have data and the ability to process information and present it quickly. Together, we make a great team. In fact, when we do experiments to compare ourselves with Google’s smart campaigns, we always manage to come out ahead. There is no more cost-effective way to approach online marketing than PPC with Lithium Marketing.
Experienced PPC Management is Key
A pay-per-click campaign is only as strong as the people running it. Lithium Marketing has the experience you need in order to get the most from your PPC campaign. We have up-to-date information about target sites and advertising packages, and we’re committed to using our experience to making sure that your next PPC effort is a successful one.
Conversion Rate Optimization
When you’re paying each time someone visits your sites, you want to make it count. That’s where landing page optimization comes into play. Our team of web designers can create a site for you which is tailored specifically to turn visitors into customers – in other words, convert them. In one particular example, we were able to achieve a 36% conversion rate for a plumbing company in Vancouver, which is pretty great (not to toot our own horn). Whether we are creating a standalone page or modifying your site, we build for a purpose.
Comprehensive Conversion Tracking
What takes PPC marketing to the next level is the data. So we make it a point to gather as much of it as we can for our Portland PPC management clients. We track who is coming to your website and what brought them there, and we track each person who contacts your business via an online form. But what about calls? We can track them too, and even link them back to the searches that brought them to your site in the first place, all using an automated system – you don’t have to do anything! This data can be used to further hone our ads on customers just like the ones who are actually reaching out to you. Because every click counts.
