Search Engine Optimization

SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
93% of online experiences start with a search engine like Google. By far, search or organic traffic remains the number one source of traffic for all websites. This is why you can’t afford to overlook SEO as part of your marketing campaign. Plus, SEO provides the best return on investment (ROI) when compared with other strategies.
For your San Diego business, we’ll help increase your local SEO presence. Optimizing your “Google My Business” page, local business listings, site copy, keyword, and mobile website are just some of the steps that we can do to improve your local SEO.

Pay Per Click

PPC (Pay-Per-Click)
Is PPC still a viable marketing strategy nowadays? Considering that 90% of online users see Google Ads and 65% of buyer-intent keywords are paid clicks, PPC remains a top-notch paid strategy for marketers. The problems associated with PPC are generally due to poor bid optimization and incorrect keyword usage.
At Cardinal, our team of PPC experts will ensure that your PPC is optimized for the best ROI. From bid optimization to keyword research to quality score improvement, Cardinal will ensure that you’re getting the most out of your PPC ad spend.

Content Creation

Content Marketing
In digital marketing, content is king. Content marketing is reportedly 3x more efficient in lead generation than outbound marketing. Also, 92% of marketers and businesses believe that content is a highly valuable asset. If your marketing campaign doesn’t revolve around some type of content, you’re doing it wrong.
Content marketing requires that you know your audience, you’re guided by data, and you focus on quality, not quantity. Our talented team of copywriters and content developers will help take your content marketing to the level it needs to be.

Responsive Web Design

Web Design and Development
It only takes 0.05 seconds to form an opinion of a website. Plus, 94% of first impressions on a website are design-related. If your website is poorly-designed, you’re turning away a lot of potential customers. This is why the importance of website design and development can’t be understated.
Cardinal’s web design team has built hundreds of world-class websites that best represent our partners’ brand. Our websites are marketing ready, secure and scalable, and optimized for mobile. Your San Diego business deserves a lot more than a poorly-designed and non-optimized website.

Social Media Marketing

Social Media Marketing
Nearly 50% of the world’s population are on social media platforms like Facebook. For many businesses today, social media is an invaluable tool to increase brand awareness and interact with their target customers. However, many businesses are unable to realize the full potential of their social media accounts.
Cardinal offers social media and Facebook Ads management services. Our social media strategies have been tested and proven to accelerate growth and deliver positive results. We’ll make social media work for your business so you don’t have to.

Increase ROI Icon

CRO (Conversion Rate Optimization)
Top companies with high conversions spend at least 5% of their budget on CRO – and for a good reason. CRO is the process of increasing your website’s ability to convert site visitors. All those clicks and traffic don’t matter much if visitors don’t go through your conversion funnels.
When it comes to conversion optimization, Cardinal is your top choice. For many years, we’ve been helping businesses in increasing their conversions – all we had to do is to take advantage of the traffic they’re already getting. This is where our innovative CRO strategies come in handy.

Why Choose Cardinal as Your San Diego Digital Marketing Agency?

What makes Cardinal the best digital marketing agency for your business?
You can ask yourself the following questions:

Do You Want an Agency With Experience and Track Record?

Sure, you can take chances with a “green” marketing agency but it could be a gamble on your part – a costly one. Our agency didn’t start yesterday or last year, we’ve been going at it for more than a decade. We’ve helped hundreds of businesses and even received numerous awards for our work.
Cardinal is an advertising agency that holds a high level of trust, expertise, and experience that no “green” agency, freelancer, employee, or intern can match.

Do You Prefer to Work With a Digital Marketing Powerhouse Team?

The best digital marketing agencies have a team of diverse talent and expertise. We’re proud of Cardinal’s flock of high-flying digital marketing experts and they’re always front and center of the agency. Our humble team is composed of SEO experts, PPC specialists, copywriters, content creators, web designers, web developers, and social media experts. Also, all of our talent is in-house – no outsourcing here.

Meet our Cardinal team and let’s talk about your marketing future.

Do You Want a Digital Marketing Campaign That’s Driven By Results?

When you work with Cardinal, you can trust that our campaigns will provide you the results that matter – leads and sales. While clicks, impressions, and traffic are good metrics to keep track of, they’re hardly the focus of our campaigns. Our strategies are designed to deliver real results like better customer acquisition, lower acquisition costs, high-quality leads, and increased sales.
We’ve worked with many different businesses from many different industries. We will leverage the data from our winning campaigns to develop a successful framework.

Do You Prefer a Low-Risk Agency Option?

Many agencies will tie you down to a 12 to a 14-month contract. For small to medium businesses, a lot of things can happen in that timeframe. If you choose the wrong agency, you’ll be left high and dry.
Instead of locking our partners into a lengthy contract, we advise them to sign a 3-month contract. In that timeframe, we can perform enough research and testing to develop a working strategy for your business and gain your trust. The time is also enough for you to see if you’re getting the results that you want or not.

San Diego is known for its surf and beaches, where people come to relax. Coronado, the home beach for the SEALs, is right across the bay from the city, and Ocean Beach and Pacific Beach offer beachfront properties and public beaches for all to enjoy. Tourism is one of San Diego’s primary economic strongholds, with people flocking to the city so they can easily visit Tijuana.

Cardinal Digital Marketing wants to be your stronghold, making people know you’re there and getting them into your store. We’ll make sure your “beaches” are clean and appealing so people want to relax and stay awhile. We’ll partner with you to devise a digital marketing plan that will draw people to your place and keep them there.

San Diego Digital Marketing: Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need SEO?

This depends on what “type” of SEO we’re talking about. Today, what we know as traditional SEO has evolved to include Social and Content SEO. SEO still involves familiar steps like on/off page optimization and linkbuilding but it’s now more focused on content and social.
In the current business climate, SEO is a strategy that you can’t do without.

I tried PPC advertising before but it was a waste of money, can you do better?

This is a really tricky question. To get the most out of your PPC campaign you need skills, experience, and effort. PPC is more than just being the highest bidder. You have to make sure that you use the right keywords, know which keywords you competitors are using, create compelling ad copy, and more.
To answer the question, yes we can! It’s what we do.

How long before I see the results?

Again, this depends on what services you want to use. For example, SEO is a complex marketing method that takes a long time to complete, and even then, it becomes an ongoing process. In SEO, expect to see results within the 4-6 months timeframe.
On the other hand, PPC is the go-to method for people who want quick results. PPC is a paid advertising method and you can generate clicks and traffic within the same day you launched the campaign.

What does a responsive website mean?

These days, people are using many different devices to view web pages. Responsive design means that your website can detect which devices your visitors are using. The site will adjust to the device’s screen size and orientation to ensure that it’s properly viewable. Regardless of the device used, your website will provide the best user experience possible.

Is Facebook Ads worth the investment?

With 2.6 billion monthly active users, Facebook Ads is one of the best paid marketing solutions for many reasons. First, Facebook Ads offer very robust analytics. The information about your campaign that you can access is simply staggering – from social metrics to conversion rates. Facebook gives you so much power when it comes to tracking your campaign.
Also, Facebook’s targeting capabilities go beyond granular. You can target audiences based on age, location, gender, demographics, age ranges, locations, interests, and more. Compared to other platforms, Facebook’s targeting might just be one of the best, if not the best.
