Beautiful sunny Vancouver

Joyous June: A Vantage Social Recap

Another month, another recap

June was one hot month. And I’m not just talking about the snazzy new photos we’ve got up on the “About Us” section of the Vantage website (which you can see right here). The sun has really been out in full force, and we’ve been enjoying it as much as we can while staying on top of work. From camping to the beach, our sun filled weekends have been grounding us with the focus necessary for success.

Let’s switch focus to our social media feeds, just to make sure you’re staying on top too. Here’s a quick recap:

Kevin became a hero in Portland (for some reason this was missed in the last recap)


Our technical expert, Kevin, went down to Portland for the 2015 Hero Conference, an event that aims to bring together the best and brightest in PPC. Taking its name from the PPC resource repertoire, the conference is both educating and entertaining.

What is Paid Search Engine Marketing?

We visited the basics in this informational post on the basic mechanics, uses, and benefits of paid search.

“Paid search marketing offers businesses the opportunity to reach these consumers in the earliest stages of making a purchase—their first search in a search engine. By taking into account the terms used by the searcher, advertisers can generate ads that are relevant to the searcher’s intent. If the ad presents what the searcher wants, it is highly likely that they will click it.”
