Step 1: Identify Problem Areas
We lay out your complete online presence floor plan to identify weak spots in your business marketing framework. Our team looks at your past business performance, marketing returns, and lead-gen numbers to gauge how well you need to do in which areas to reach the desired business goals.
No matter how small or major your marketing problems are, we make sure to identify and classify them in order of importance, and implement creative solutions at the optimal times.

We brainstorm ideas tailored to your specific needs as a business operating in your particular industry. Considering your existing resources and current priorities, we’re able to figure out how to set up a marketing blueprint that works for your present state of business.
While tried and tested formulas can work, we believe in using creativity as a driving force behind all of our marketing efforts.

We create a foundation that you can use to continue increasing reach and returns while minimizing the time and effort you have to put in, every step of the way. Whether you need a one-off social media campaign or a full-fledged online marketing engine, we make sure you get what you pay for.
Our work doesn’t end at your goals, though. We plan far ahead to make sure your assets keep performing long after execution, while you focus on expanding your business horizons.
Our Creative Tools
The digital marketing space has a suite of tools that allow for a holistic marketing approach. At EBS, we believe in leveraging the most impactful, sustainable, and lucrative ones.
We center our strategic input around the following digital marketing tools:
Your marketing returns will only be as good as your marketing efforts, and the quality of your marketing “efforts” is determined by the quality of your content. It’s no surprise that marketers live by the rule of “Content is King.”
Your content is the centerpiece of your marketing efforts. We make sure that your content engages, informs, and builds trust in potential leads. Our expert content marketing teams ensure that you put out the right message at the right time and place for maximum brand affinity and conversion.
Our content marketing efforts are powered by analytics tools such as Google Analytics, which let us track each new development as it relates to your online presence.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
SEO is the primary method of boosting organic ranking, right after creating great content and having a streamlined, trustworthy website. With that in mind, we have a dedicated team of experienced SEO specialists ready to help your site power its way to the top.
Your content needs to be positioned where it’ll be visible to your audiences. We use the industry’s top search engine optimization tools to ensure your website stays on top of search results. Our SEO experts will create a solid back-end infrastructure which supports web content that search engines love.
We use industry-standard tools such as Ahrefs, SEMrush, and CopyScape to ensure high content relevance, quality, and originality.
Social Media Marketing (SMM)
Social media platforms are quickly becoming mainstream search (and marketing) regions. This is where a lot of your potential customers will be, so it makes sense to have social media experts with in-depth SMM knowledge on board.
A good social media campaign creates widespread brand awareness. However, we believe in brand affinity, which comes with more loyal customers, recurring business, and greater revenue. We craft social media strategies that are customized for the right audience, whichever platform they may be on.
Paid Search Engine Marketing or Pay Per Click (PPC)
Paid search marketing will place your brand at the top of your current and potential customers’ search results. While we believe organic ranking is king, paid marketing is undoubtedly the kingmaker in the online marketing world.
PPC is the fastest way to reach your target audience on any platform. Our paid search experts work with our content teams to analyze the exact keywords your audience uses for search, and base your paid marketing around it. This leads to the ideal positioning of your brand where your customers can see it and are likely to choose it.
Email marketing is a more one-to-one approach to reaching your potential customers. You get to speak directly to your site visitors and engage anyone who shows interest in your product.
An effective email strategy can support your overall marketing plan by adding a valuable customer engagement element to it. Our team creates clear, concise, and compelling messaging that resonates with your potential customers, gradually turning them into qualified leads. Plus, you get to engage customers in real time.
Content Management (CMS)
Your entire online presence and all of your content needs a rock-solid foundation, in the form of a content management system. It’s what allows you to scale your presence and supports content output.
A well-built and managed content foundation can help implement various changes that come with growth and expansion. Even if you drastically alter your business model, a robust CMS system can handle the change without impacting your existing online position.
We use world-class CMS systems such as WordPress and Shopify, with high-level plug-ins such as Yoast and WooCommerce to support site development.
Brand Affinity Growth
While most agencies work on increasing brand recognition (traffic, clicks, impressions, etc.), we believe in building brand affinity (repeat business, referrals, word-of-mouth). It’s much better for the long-term sustainability of a brand.
Our marketing is based on creating, sustaining, and improving brand affinity, instead of just brand awareness. With brand affinity as a goal, we’re able to help businesses build lasting relationships with their customers. This turns customers into marketing assets and creates an additional revenue pipeline.
Our Creative Process
We at EBS Agency believe in having a method to the creative madness (and our creative process reflects that)!
Here’s how we help boost engagement, improve conversions, and bring more paying leads to you.
We comb through your current process and analyze data on your entire marketing infrastructure. This lets us determine what has worked for you in the past, what works for your competitors, and what will work for you going forward. Our data sets open up a world of marketing possibilities and we single out the ones that match your goals.
We develop a strategy that’s unique to your growth needs, using the data that we collected. Considering the available resources, we set up a complete long and short-term strategy that considers the big picture for ROI but also pays attention to little details for immediate customer acquisition.
We work with you to map out the entire process from start to finish. We show you what kind of results you can expect with each marketing tool, and we demonstrate how to use said tool. To make sure you’re always on the right path, we set up guidance systems in the form of performance monitoring to ensure everything goes to plan.
Design and Development
We create an online presence that will bring people to you, engage them with your message, immerse them into your story, and convince them to become customers. Our high-performing websites can help your customers navigate through the buyer’s journey much quicker, leading to better returns, more loyal customers, and a much better user experience overall.
