Google Search Phrase
PDX Marketing will work with the Client one-on- one to place them on searches that are performed through Google’s online search engine. The goal is to put the Client’s name directly in front of their target markets. Google’s advertising platform analyzes and provides data for different markets, and PDX Marketing finds the most cost effective positions that will obtain the highest return on investment.
PDX Marketing only represents one client under any Exclusive Google Search Phrase at a time. That means that every advertisement for the Client is a priority and the Client can maintain an effective marketing strategy.
In addition to placement on Google searches, PDX Marketing may also provide other marketing services. These will complement search phrase placement and further enhance results and exposure.

However, it is the customer’s responsibility to forward any changes to applicable laws to ensure PDX Marketing is able to provide services which will not impact the licenses or legal standing of these businesses. PDX Marketing will review these businesses on a case by case basis. These businesses are not able to use services provided by PDX Marketing which use third party companies of which PDX Marketing does not control the content, such as services which provide automated social media posting, or outsourcing of content creating.
