Overview

** We're ranked in the top 1% of all Sales & Marketing companies on Elance. We specialize in PPC Search Engine Advertising, Facebook Advertising & Social Media Management **

My name is Josh Barsch, and I'm the owner of StraightForward Interactive. We're one of the oldest PPC-management agencies in the U.S. -- I founded the company in 2001, back when the only player in pay-per-click advertising was GoTo.com.

I've spent $2,000,000 of *my own money* on Google Adwords campaigns on commission-based jobs that returned a great profit -- with no...

Service Description

We've managed over $13,000,000 in ad spending for clients across the world and in virtually every industry.

We don't outsource any Adwords management to anyone (in or out of the U.S.), and we don't use off-the-shelf or cloud-based management software that claims to replace the need for management by real people (it doesn't, and it never will). We're charter members of Google's new Certified Advertising Partner program (beware providers advertising themselves as "Qualified Adwords Individual" or similar -- Google retired these certifications in November 2010 and they're no longer valid or endorsed by Google).

Most of our Adwords-management clients are long-term engagements sent to us by referrals, but we're initiating an Elance presence in order to find more of those relationships! We're happy to manage your entire account, but we're also happy to consulting, train and audit if your situation requires that.

While we work with a variety of different clients, we primarily service other advertising agencies as PPC subcontractors. In many cases, full-service agencies simply don't have the expertise in-house to tackle the full-time job that is Google/Facebook ad management. We provide this at a fee that leaves reasonable markup room for the agency itself. As for visibility to the end-client, we facilitate relationships across the spectrum: from complete transparency to a totally white-labeled and NDA-secured management arrangement.
