New York, NY (Vocus/PRWEB) March 03, 2011
Elite SEM, a boutique digital marketing agency specializing in Search Engine Marketing, today was named Digital Marketing agency of record for the young luxury fashion brand Milly by Michele Smith. The Google AdWords Certified agency will focus on boosting MillyNY.com’s paid search results and rankings through carefully chosen and relevant keywords, branding and Pay Per Click campaigns. The agency’s customized and sophisticated SEM approach is expected to steer the brand’s aggressive e-commerce objectives.
“We are thrilled to add MillyNY.com to our client roster,” says Ben Kirshner, CEO of Elite SEM. “Milly already has a strong brand following and awareness among consumers looking for bold colors and prints, extravagant fabrics and impeccable quality. Our goal, simply put, is to connect online shoppers to a brand that speaks to their playful personality, glamorous lifestyle and modern aesthetic.”
The agency’s selection signals the changing landscape of fashion marketing. What has traditionally been a brick-and-mortar business for decades is now much more focused on attracting the influential, younger and stylish consumers online. According to MasterCard SpendingPulse, luxury sales rose 6.7% during the 2010 holiday season after a less than stellar 2009.
“Elite SEM is highly respected, trusted and valued in the e-commerce circle,” says Alison Bergen, Manager of Business Development for Milly. “We see them as a direct extension of Milly’s Marketing & E-Commerce team and look forward to working closely with them to keep our brand top of mind among shoppers.”
