Search Engine Optimization is the process of improving the visibility of a website in search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing, and it is the core of our services at Kite Media. We make sure that your business gets a large exposure online to turn even more followers into committed customers. Even though search engines have become more and more complex, our SEO service helps the engines understand what each page is about, and how it may be helpful for the end user.

To remain competitive online, it’s necessary to engage in online marketing strategies, and to stay consistent with those strategies.

Pay-Per-Click involves creating ads, both text-based and image/banner ads, through programs such as Google Ads. These ads will then appear online based on specific search terms and interests of users. Your ad can appear whenever someone searches for criteria matching your keywords.
You’ll start seeing your PPC ads immediately and they can be easily tracked – even better, you only pay for the ads that get clicks. We will help you understand what your prospective students and their parents are searching for online, enabling us to shape your ads and events to provide the greatest return on investment. We monitor and update your ads to make sure you’re never overspending and that you’re getting the most value out of the service.
