SEO & Performance Media

When it comes to data-led search and performance marketing, you’re in safe hands. iCrossing has over two decades of experience, and we’ve honed our craft into a fine art.

Starting with audience intelligence, our strategy & planning teams create a roadmap to success that takes an iterative test and learn approach. Only then do we scale investment across paid search, paid social, programmatic and SEO. Our world-class SEO and total search capability has both scale and expertise, meaning we can provide solutions at a global level to enterprise brands.

Search isn’t just about search engines, with visual search, voice search and YouTube being increasingly used by audiences to inform, inspire and ultimately influence purchasing decisions. But our agile approach brings a hands-on, human component to this increasingly efficient and automated world, with a suite of proprietary tech and machine learning tools that will give your business a competitive edge.

Whether it’s real-time search data from our parent company Hearst to identify trends and opportunities for your brand or delivering you real-time alerts about the health of your PPC & SEO multiple times a day – our tools are designed to drive optimisation of all of your digital marketing activities.
