1. Awesome Results
We know your #1 focus is results, and ours is too.
In fact, we are proud to share with you that Google has published our client case studies detailing businesses that have achieved staggering returns of over 20:1. Not bad, right?
We’re not the kind of agency that ‘guarantees’ results but we do guarantee that we only hire the very best, and our experts’ skills, knowledge and experience (we’ve been doing search marketing for more than a decade) will set you up for the type of wins you can boast about at dinner parties.
If you’d like to see for yourself, we have a wealth of case studies for you to read, and clients for you to contact.
We’re pleased to say that despite only launching their website a year prior, Capstone Editing met their revenue targets in less than 18 months.

2. Single-minded focus
We feel many agencies get distracted from their core skills by offering a bunch of related services to diversify their revenue streams.
Here in CleverClicks country, we have a single-minded focus: Search marketing – also known as SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) & PPC (Pay Per Click advertising).
That’s it. And that has immense advantages.
We do, however, also spend an unhealthy amount of time inside Google Analytics because it helps us drive more profitable results. So we know a thing or two about GA too.
3. 100% Transparency
Let’s face it: the internet marketing industry has some credibility issues.
We know your greatest fear is paying an agency and not getting the results, or having to jump through hoops to keep track of what they are (or are not) doing. That’s why we are obsessed with transparency.
Transparency of process:
We are very clear about what we are doing on your behalf, and you will always have 24/7 access to ALL of your data (not just limited access).
Transparency of fees:
Our fees are always separate from the search engine’s fees.
In fact, we are so devoted to transparency, we are starting a worldwide PPC organisation based on the standards of operation we feel all agencies should adhere to.

4. No Contracts
We do not believe in contracts.
We like to prove our value on a month-to-month basis. Locking you into a contract is nuts.
We want you to want to be working with us!
Initially, we ask you to verbally commit to at least two months as this gives us enough time to work our magic. But after that we only need 30 days’ written notice if you intend to cancel. No strings attached.
We’d rather decline their business than lose yours.
We are well aware that we will have access to some very confidential aspects of your business, so we voluntarily agree not to work with a direct competitor in your same geography.
We don’t understand how some companies can outsource to a large agency or reseller knowing they’ll be working with many of their competitors. That’s not how we roll.
We will call to get your approval before we take on a new client if we see a remote chance of potential conflict.
6. We Measure Everything
Measuring means money in the bank.
That’s why we insist on both call tracking (if you receive a significant number of your leads via the phone) and auditing your Google Analytics account.
If necessary, we will recommend changing the way analytics records goals on your website.
