San Francisco Digital Marketing Agency: Our Award-Winning Services

Search Engine Optimization

SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
SEO is widely considered to be a core component of any digital marketing campaign. Your customers must be able to find your business whenever they search online. Our main goal here is to increase your rank and eventually end up on the first page of Google. Why? Because only 25% of users bother scrolling past the first page.

As your Bay Area digital marketing agency, Cardinal can serve as an SEO consultant or completely take over your SEO campaign. Either way, we’ll make your investment count.

Pay Per Click

PPC (Pay-Per-Click)
PPC is the go-to strategy if you want an immediate boost for your marketing. You can set up your account, make some tweaks, launch the campaign, and generate traffic – all on the same day. However, it’s easy to fall into the trap of overspending and getting clicks and impressions that don’t convert.
If you choose us as your San Francisco PPC agency, we can help you craft paid advertising campaigns that hone in on your preferred audience and get the best ROI.

Content Creation

Social Media Marketing
These days, social media has become a staple tool for any online marketer. Social media platforms like Facebook provide an effective channel for engaging and attracting customers. But most brands seem to stop at making a page and just posting once in a while. That’s hardly taking advantage of social media’s power.

Cardinal will help you manage your social media accounts. We’re going to post high-quality content, engage with your followers, and if you want a paid advertising method like Facebook Ads, we’ll take that off your plate as well.

Responsive Web Design

Web Development and Design
A website is the primary marketing tool of any business that’s open 24/7. According to a study, 94% of first impressions depend on the site’s web design. Create a positive first impression and you can engage the visitors long enough to convert them.

Cardinal also offers web development and design services. We won’t just create a stunning website for you; we’ll make sure that it’s responsive, structured properly, and focuses on conversion.

Social Media Marketing

Reputation Management
Did you know that 82% of consumers read reviews when looking up local businesses?According to experts, review signals make up 15% of ranking factors for Google. Like it or not, online reviews can make or break a business. This is why you need to manage your online reputation.

A positive reputation helps customers trust businesses, converts visitors to leads, and increases local search rankings. If you need help with maintaining your positive online image, Cardinal is here to help. Don’t let your online reputation hurt your business.

Increase ROI Icon

CRO (Conversion Rate Optimization)
According to a survey, 4 out of 5 marketers say that their website isn’t operating at full potential. This is a common complaint for business owners: they get the traffic and clicks but don’t match the conversions and sales. If this is your situation, you should consider adopting a conversion optimization strategy.

Cardinal is your premier Bay Area CRO agency. We’ll dig into your analytics and develop a strategy that will allow us to hit your conversion goals. Furthermore, we’ll perform steps like A/B testing, landing page optimization, site copy optimization, and more. Basically, we’ll make the most out of the traffic you’re already getting.

San Francisco Digital Marketing Agency: FAQs

Take a look at some of the most common questions that our partners ask.

What does the typical SEO growth journey look like?

SEO is ideal for long-term growth and requires a great deal of maintenance. It’s an ongoing process and the results become apparent in around 4 to 6 months. The first 6 months is generally dedicated to fine tuning the campaign and fixing errors.

After the 6-month mark, your efforts should have ongoing and compounding benefits for many years to come.

For social media, why is partnering with an agency better than hiring someone in-house?

The best benefit of hiring an agency to manage your social media account is the skills and experience. An agency that offers social media management has dedicated experts that stay updated on current trends, techniques, updates, and more. Our social media specialists know the ins and outs of platforms such as Facebook.

What should be my budget for digital marketing?

This is a very difficult question since everyone’s needs are different. However, we do recommend that you should spend about 2 to 5 percent of your sales revenue on digital marketing. The average cost of digital marketing services ranges from $2,500 to $12,000 per month for small to medium-sized businesses.

Do I need to optimize my website for mobile?

Mobile devices are part of everyone’s life nowadays. In San Francisco, the majority of your customers will browse your website through a smartphone or tablet. Mobile optimization ensures that you provide a responsive user experience. A poorly-designed website will ultimately affect your sales and conversions in a negative way.
