The Market Opportunity Clickable Addresses: The past decade introduced revolutionary innovation in online advertising, but the paradox is the immense complexity that came with it - especially in search. Complexity manifests in to too many unique interfaces, overwhelming analytics, and inconsistent performance tracking systems - all contributing to counterproductive friction. These challenges are daunting for small and midsize marketers, who tend to be busy, multifaceted business people. This SMB segment spends less than $50,000/month on search advertising and comprises half of all search-ad spend.
Many advertisers would like to outsource to an agency, but shrinking agency margins are making smaller advertisers unprofitable to serve, and raising the required minimum spend. Moreover, the existing tools out there are designed for larger enterprises and require expensive and timely configuration. In fact, only 27% of search advertisers use outside SEM agencies, according to Marketing Sherpa, while only 26% use paid-search technology, according to Jupiter Research. The answer to this market opportunity lies in a new wave of Web services, and that's where Clickable comes in.
There are companies who have introduced successful search-ad management systems at the high-end enterprise side of the market. However, Clickable is unique in bringing a simple, consolidated experience with recommendations to the small-and-midsize business sector. Importantly, Clickable is "login and go" - new customers can expect to be up and running in minutes. No heavy configuration. No special training. Just simplicity, "instant on" and greater profitability the minute you sign in.
