We wanted an agency partner with a strong understanding of the Internet and consumer behaviors; as well as, the capacity to be, an extension of our team.
New York, NY (PRWEB) May 25, 2011
Clarks Companies, N.A. – the leading manufacturer of stylish, long-lasting and comfortable footwear – has named Elite SEM as Agency of Record for Digital Search Marketing. With more than 250 retail stores in the United States and Puerto Rico, the Clarks and Bostonian shoe brands searched for a digital agency to aid their move into e-commerce.
The footwear brands plan to leverage paid search, display ads and remarketing as part of its overall e-commerce and marketing mix to connect with shoppers, many of whom explore the digital space for styles, value and information about shoes – from women’s casual sandals, boots and shoes to men’s oxfords and dress shoes.
Rick Almeida, Director of E-Commerce for Clarks Companies, North America, emphasizes that Elite SEM’s core competency as game-changing SEM masters and unconventional use of digital channels helped the agency move to the top of Clarks’ agency search.
“When it came time to choose an Agency of Record, we didn’t want to pigeon-hole ourselves into the traditional client-agency relationship. We wanted an agency partner with a strong understanding of the Internet and consumer behaviors; as well as, the capacity to be, an extension of our team. We believe Elite SEM’s expertise, combined with their innovative ideas, will help raise our brand’s visibility among online shoppers.”
“We’re thrilled to be chosen as the Agency of Record for Clarks Companies, North America,” says Ben Kirshner, CEO of Elite SEM. “We feel confident that our digital marketing relationship will parallel the brand’s promise of style and innovation.”
