About Group Twenty Seven

Get ready to achieve superior Google Ads results with our application of time-tested marketing principles and cutting-edge digital strategies.

Here’s what you’ll gain when you make us part of your marketing team:

 

Deep PPC expertise.

You don’t have time to wade into every nuance of Google Ads management—but we do. You can leave the heavy lifting and details to us.

Big picture view.

Your paid search strategy should be based on more than what’s obvious from a cursory review of your Google Ads account. We educate ourselves about your company and its marketing BEFORE doing a deep dive into your PPC accounts.

Customized advertising plan.

You’re not satisfied with cookie-cutter approaches to your marketing, and we’re not either. We’ll design a custom advertising plan that’s specific to your company and its needs.

No long-term contracts.

Most of our clients stay with us for years, but you don’t have to. You can take things month by month, with no long-term obligation.

Personal account manager.

Having your own account manager (or two) provides you with a high level of responsiveness—and each of our account managers is guided by an experienced PPC director.

High touch.

While Google AI and automation are great, they’re no substitute for actual human oversight. Your account will get the eyes-on personal attention it deserves.

Continual optimization.

Continual optimization means better results. We’ll keep testing and strategizing to take your results to the next level even when we’re hitting your goals.

Proactive approach.

The real opportunities in PPC lie in being proactive, not reactive. We’ll help you get where you want to go by actively seeking out the best strategies—and spotting problems before they occur.

Early access to new tools, alphas and betas.

As a trusted agency, Google gives us early access to tools and functions in alpha and beta testing phases—an advantage we can put to work for you.

Agility.

Opportunities can arise quickly in PPC when Google Ads changes or rolls out new features. We act quickly on your behalf to take advantage of them before they disappear.

Data-driven decision making.

Your Google Ads strategies shouldn’t be a shot in the dark. We figure out what’s actually driving your revenue and leads and then use data-driven decision making to develop strategy.

Open communication.

You should always know what’s going on with your Google Ads program. We keep you abreast of what we’re doing through reporting and regular meetings that fit with your schedule.

Our Women-Forward Team

Marketing managers, directors and C-suite executives just like you have been benefiting from our advertising services for over 12 years.

We remain committed to providing women-forward businesses with the responsive service and excellent results on which we’ve built our reputation.

I have over 20 years of experience in digital marketing, with the last 15 of those years focused on paid search marketing. Today, I'm proud to lead a strong team of digital advertising experts and provide consulting, program management, and corporate training services to our B2B clients.

I love to travel—although I enjoy the planning part as much as the actual trip. I’m learning to enjoy gardening and am slowly killing fewer flowers, bushes and trees. More than anything though, I love to hang out with my family and friends.
