Greenlight Secures LV= Digital Marketing Brief

LONDON, November 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Independent digital marketing agency, Greenlight has been awarded a brief to define a digital strategy and implement integrated paid media and search campaigns for LV='s life and pensions business, to continue itsinvestment and further its growth via digital channels.

Greenlight takes the account over from incumbent agency, Harvest Digital, and will be responsible for digital media buying including paid media, natural search and display media.

Greenlight's strategy will includecreative link building to improve keyword rankings, social campaigns, on-page search engine optimisation (SEO) and all elements of paid media.

Lee Noon, LV= Head of Life Digital Marketing comments:

"We've been through a detailed tender process which started back in March 2012 to find the right agency to support our future growth plans. Greenlight has an outstanding reputation and strong track record for delivering high performing digital campaigns, and we look forward to working with them."

Greenlight will also look to improve efficiencies in search marketing budgets and to reduce LV='s life and pensions' reliance on paid media, particularly in areas where SEO is performing well. This will be done via the implementation of Hydra, Greenlight's software-as-a-service cloud platform technology,comprising a toolset and framework to measure how SEO and pay per click (PPC) compliment or cannibalise each other. This will eliminate duplication of activity and investments to deliver efficiencies and uncover new opportunities for growth.

Greenlight will also carry out a completely new adwords structure for paid campaigns and performance display to drive increased brand awareness, repeat purchase and direct sales.

Matthew Whiteway, Client Services Director at Greenlight comments:

"Lots of agencies talk about integration between SEO and PPC, but with our Hydra One Platform we believe we are the only agency to deliver a truly effective working model that will produce results. Hydra's efficiency algorithm allows us to see where PPC is cannibalising free traffic and sales from organic search, so that clients can reallocate that budget to areas where it is more likely to drive new incremental sales."

We are delighted to have been selected by LV= and look forward to working together with the team to drive its business forward."

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served.

Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
