We take the traditional advertising approach and turn it on its head.

The in-depth information we harvest from our digital campaigns perfectly complements the work we undertake with other advertising mediums and reaches target audiences in the right place, at the right time but most importantly when in the right mind-set. We plan the reach of ads so that they target the relevant people, which in turn leads to the best return on investment. We do this by hitting the customer on every touch point.

Whether the target market is searching online, visiting a website, watching a video or socialising with friends online, we serve ads to them accordingly. We can even follow previous website visitors around the internet, using advertising that’s specifically tailored to the last thing they researched. We use WordStream, an online marketing tool suite, allowing us to create, optimise, manage and measure high-performing paid search campaigns.

I have seen the evolution of PPC, SEO, web design, affiliate marketing and social media over the last 14 years and have embraced these changes.

Matt Hopkins
Head of Digital

I have been working in digital since the very early days of 2002 when frame sites were stuffed with keywords in the Meta tag and content with such a high keyword density that they were unreadable.

Under my management I have seen the power of digital advertising work as effectively for small business as it has for a large business; small companies sold their niche products to wider customer bases for the fraction of the cost; the biggest buyer of paid traffic in the UK saw how important a strong digital presence maintained and enhanced their strong brand presence.

Throughout my career I have worked by three key rules:

Learn as much as you can about the subject
There is so much information online that I found you can become reasonably authoritative on the subject in a short space of time.

Assume nothing, always be data driven
Digi-sense is the new common sense. So much data can be accumulated that it is so important to phase out the gut feeling and look at the figures before a decision is made.

Don’t get comfortable; there is always something new coming.
I remember when Twitter hit the ground running in 2009. Many of the board, where I worked, didn’t see the value of it. After educating them we became an early adopter and promoted our brand successfully using it. The industry has and always will be shaken up by the next ground breaker. Be prepared.

  • S3 Advertising have been so easy to work with and nothing is too much trouble. Within a few short months they already feel part of our team! Their in-depth knowledge of digital and the ability to understand, optimise and produce high quality campaigns and reports are particularly impressive.

  • I’ve had many a conversation with agencies who will say, “We work with lots of businesses like yours so we know exactly what you want!” and guess what – you usually end up with what everyone else already has. This didn’t happen with S3 Advertising. I felt that they really listened to what we wanted, made no assumptions and came up with some fresh ideas that we hadn’t considered. We are really delighted with the work they did for us.
