For the past year, Elite SEM (also known as Elite Digital) has been on an accelerated growth path to provide clients with a holistic view of all marketing channels. We’ve internally built expertise in areas such as Programmatic Display, Affiliate, and SEO through hiring industry-leading talent, and expanded through acquisition, in order to continuously provide our clients with an integrated strategy across all digital marketing efforts.
In 2017, we acquired Facebook Advertising powerhouse OrionCKB, which strengthened our existing Paid Social services, as well as our relationship with key partners like Facebook and Nanigans.
We have also invested in Email, CRM, and Creative Service offerings with the acquisition of Email Aptitude in May of 2018 as well as the expansion of our Analytics and Marketing Science team and the launch of our Affiliate Marketing services.
I’m excited to share that today we have MORE big news. As of August 31, Elite SEM has acquired CPC Strategy, the leading independent Amazon-focused performance marketing agency. CPC Strategy has been a “first mover” in the Amazon space and is a prolific thought leaders. This marks our third acquisition and solidifies our leadership position in search, social and shopping management and our relationships with Google, Facebook, and Amazon.
CPC Strategy – Leading Agency for Amazon and Marketplaces
CPC Strategy is the leading agency on delivering improved results on Amazon while continuing to provide the same leading search and shopping management they have since 2007. They specialize in implementing performance growth on search and shopping channels that directly impact a retailer’s digital bottom line. They were named one of the “Best Places to Work in San Diego” by the San Diego Business Journal, one of Inc.’s “5000 Fast Growing Private Companies,” and one of the “Top Places to Work in San Diego” by the San Diego Business Journal.
In addition to their strength in Amazon services, the CPC Strategy team is made up of top industry experts who have grown and managed shopping feed programs for some of the fastest-growing startups, sellers, and global enterprise brands and are known in the space for being innovators and first-movers. Together, we are now a Search, Social, and Amazon powerhouse and will continue to deliver top marketing performance to our clients.
On the technology side, CPC Strategy has developed CAPx, a proprietary Amazon media and bid optimization platform. CAPx was initially developed in 2014 as a Search and Shopping tool. With the growth of Amazon there was an opportunity to use CAPx to create competitive advantage, as at the time, there was no platform available that would allow efficient management of Amazon programs at scale. They have continued to develop CAPx and it now provides substantial efficiency and efficacy gains. We will now be able to leverage the Amazon team at CPC, as well as CAPx in service of our clients to grow their Amazon business.
What Does This mean for Elite’s Clients, Partners and Approach to Technology?
We’re now resourced to be the leading independent performance marketing agency, equally expert in Search, Social, and Marketplaces, with formidable strength on Google, Facebook, and Amazon. We anticipate more events with these key partners, increased thought leadership, and new strategies to further advance our clients’ shopping and digital marketing performance.
We also now have one of the leading proprietary Amazon bid and optimization platforms which we will continue to develop to keep market competitive. As we always have done with technology, we will continue to evaluate what’s available and use the best solution for each of our clients’ needs
