We Build Long-Lasting PPC Partnerships
We are a team of hard-working marketers committed to using our 25+ years of PPC advertising experience for good. Working from Coal Harbor in Vancouver, our small size lets us focus on custom, in-depth PPC management for select eCommerce and lead generation clients.
To us, being a part of an agency means having agency in what we do, how we do it, and who we do it with. We work at Vantage because here we feel empowered to be flexible and proactive, to solve challenges and to seize opportunities, to grow and to innovate. Most importantly, we feel encouraged to be ourselves and to take advantage of our potential no matter where we come from, how we identify, or what we believe in.
We go to work because we get to promise our clients a transparent, scientific, and long-term PPC growth strategy. We get to promise this because we know our team members are dedicated to excellence in their craft whether that be building and testing landing pages, researching and selecting search terms, creating realistic and scientific growth plans, or any other of the numerous PPC skills our team offers.
We go to work because we’re proud of the results, relationships, and stories we get to create with our clients and our team.
Meet The Core Team
Steve’s earned a lot of titles: father and family man, he who swims with whale sharks, founder and owner of Vantage, traveler of the world, wearer of kilts, and PPC realist to name a few.
Equipped with over a decade of ROI-driven PPC experience, Steve leads our little team with a pragmatic and honest approach towards growing both his clients’ businesses and his own.
Steve loves creating big profitable PPC marketing strategies for companies ready to reach the next level. He then makes sure that his team delivers his digital vision (or else).
If he’s not envisioning a client’s next step towards growth, Steve might be found riding his bicycle across Lion’s Gate Bridge or hiking in Lynn Canyon with his dog, Ghost.
Kevin’s managed huge accounts during his many years at Vantage, steering six-figure monthly ad spends profitably and safely to their target goals.
He hates inefficiencies.
But Kevin’s greatest love comes from his hatred: fixing inefficiencies. His extreme attention to detail (borderline obsessive) drives him to find and create spreadsheets, formulas, macros, scripts, and/or software to make our accounts run like well-oiled machines.
Kevin, our chic geek, is actually quite the athlete. When not making money for our clients, you might find Kevin snowboarding, dirt biking or playing hockey (he’s a goalie--he will save your PPC account).
Renton’s* got a penchant for creating landing pages that turn visitors into customers. He loves seeing new design ideas have a direct impact on conversion rates.
With a degree in Marketing as well as New Media and Web Development, Renton’s got the know-how to do the do-how AKA testing, designing, and tracking winning landing pages.
A true Vancouverite, Renton belongs on the mountains. He thinks he should be Evo Car Share’s number one customer for the small fortune he spends getting his bike, skis, or hiking boots up in the mountain air.
*Yes, we use his surname as his nickname
“Never laugh at live dragons”--J.R.R. Tolkein. Advice Michael has yet to use despite his efforts to find a breathing dragon on Mt. Seymour with his black lab, Sadie.
An English major at the forefront of PPC technology, Michael makes sure that his team and its social media following keep up-to-date on industry trends by using his key word finding education as best he can.
He also coordinates, edits, schedules, writes, stamps, and even licks the content and copy Vantage presents to the world.
Jordana engages with words like she engages with the unique cultures and peoples that have driven her to travel to over 50 countries--avidly.
As an anthropology graduate Jordana strives to produce culturally nuanced writing that represents her subjects authentically. Jordana makes sure that the human voice remains so that she can craft compelling copy.
Whether writing for Vantage or for her own travel publications, Jordana wants her readers to feel inspired to act. So, go, get out there--fling yourself out of your comfort zone!
