Unlike other companies that try to stretch to be everything to everyone, and dilute their offerings in the process, Acquisio prefers to take a partnership approach.
(PRWEB) October 13, 2010
Earlier this week, performance media platform providers Acquisio unveiled another customer-focused improvement: a partnership with the world's leading pay-per-click advertising agency, Clix Marketing. Via the terms of the partnership, Clix Marketing has become an Acquisio Systems Integrator and will be available to assist current and future Acquisio customers with online marketing campaign management and optimization. The company also announced that David Szetela, Clix Marketing's CEO, has been added to Acquisio's board of advisors.
As an Acquisio Systems Integrator, Clix Marketing experts who have been extensively trained on the Acquisio performance media platform will help clients make the most of their online marketing investment by providing real-world knowledge on everything from understanding which metrics to measure, to optimizing landing pages for higher conversion rates, or testing Google AdWords and Facebook ads to achieve a higher ROI.
"While Acquisio’s platform is easy to use right out of the box, some of our customers have asked us for a little extra help to maximize what Acquisio can do for them. Partnering with the leading online marketing agency in the world, we're making a valuable resource directly available to our customers," said Marc Poirier, CMO and co-founder of Acquisio. "Unlike other companies that try to stretch to be everything to everyone, and dilute their offerings in the process, Acquisio prefers to take a partnership approach. This allows us to bring in companies that share a similar unwavering commitment to stellar customer service, and possess expertise in areas with which our clients need assistance. Bringing Clix Marketing on as an Acquisio Systems Integrator is a perfect way to expand our client offerings and improve our clients' level of knowledge while maintaining the highest level of quality and service."

SZETELA CALLS THE PARTNERSHIP A WIN-WIN-WIN
Via the partnership, all Clix Marketing clients will have access to the Acquisio platform. "This is a win-win-win situation," said Szetela. "Our clients benefit because we've found the absolute best software platform to help them manage their online marketing performance, including their PPC advertising. Acquisio clients who want or need an extra boost to their online marketing will benefit because they will have access to the top pay-for-performance agency that is actually collaborating with Acquisio on the software itself…talk about integrated! And our companies win because our combined offering strengthens us both, ensuring greater relevance in the quickly shifting online marketing/advertising landscape."
