Best Digital Marketing Agencies in Vancouver

by Kedet | November 8, 2021


Digital marketing encompasses paid advertising, design, content marketing, social media, PR, SEO…and so much more. Because of this, many brands need supplementary support for specific marketing needs, and that’s where digital marketing agencies come in—to fill the gap and elevate your marketing efforts.
Today, we would like to highlight some of the best digital marketing agencies in Vancouver. We’ll highlight their service offerings, specializations, a little more about them and why we think they’re great! Here is the list in no particular order:

War Room

Services Offered

  • PPC (Paid, Search, Display, Native…) Advertising
  • Video Ads
  • Social Ads
  • Audio Ads
  • Digital Out-Of-Home (DOOH) Ads
  • Online Travel Agencies (OTA) Ads
  • Hotel / Metasearch Ads and more

Specialization

  • Programmatic advertising
  • Hyper-targeting
  • Cross-channel
  • Physical visitation tracking
  • In-depth analytics

(You bet we’re gonna put ourselves on this list because we are proud of the work we do!)

War Room had to find a way to stand out from all the full-service digital marketing agencies in Vancouver. So, we chose to focus solely on digital advertising, specializing 100% in programmatic advertising. We’ve been rocking media buying for over a decade now. AdExchanger recently named us one of the best Programmatic Power Players!

Did You Know? In 2021, more than 89% of the entire display advertising dollars in the United States are programmatic, and that number is only about to go up.

Our in-house programmatic platform, Kedet (which our experts built from scratch), automates ad buying. It has capabilities for ad campaigns for all types of objectives, whether it be lead generation, brand awareness, or physical store visits–we got you covered.

Cross-Channel Advertising

We will connect all of your ad channels and sync their data. For example, Facebook Ads can now have transparency with your Google Ads and Youtube Ads. These channels now speak to each other, and we can exclude audiences who have already converted from one channel, in turn saving you ad dollars. Then, we can even run retargeting campaigns later down the road. (Not many agencies can do this, so we dare you to ask us about our specialty!)

Hyper-Targeting

Advertising is all about getting in front of the right people at the right place and time. Demographics like age, location, gender are straightforward, but complex insights like shopping behavior; interests etc. can be laser-focused, thanks to Kedet! Plus, Klick&Mortar is another neat add-on feature of ours. Businesses with physical storefronts can actually track ad performance the moment a user sees their online ad to when they visit your store in person.

Our approach is customizing a holistic advertising strategy based on your goals and budget.

We perfected the balance between ad tech and human expertise. Our team is made up of digital nerds who specialize in different advertising channels. They will be the ones proactively monitoring and optimizing the campaigns to ensure every dollar you’re spending is used to the fullest potential.

Our direct partnerships with 90,000+ premium ad publishers means when it comes to digital ad buying, you can expect:

  • Lower Cost-Per-Click (CPC)
  • A wider audience reach
  • Overall, a lower Cost-Per-Acquisition (CPA)

We do advertising and nothing else. We do advertising exceptionally well.

So, if you’re looking for a trustworthy agency to take care of your digital advertising and drive better Return On Investment (ROI), connect with us at War Room today!
