The OpenMoves team has been our SEO and PPC partner for several years and has become an extension of our team. We feel confident they are managing our accounts wisely and helping us improve results during challenging times like COVID as well as seasonal and macro changes. The team is highly responsive, flexible and professional and always willing to work with us to launch new markets, strategies, and messaging. Their fresh ideas, reliability, and deep experience help make our job easier.
A high-ticket item that has a relatively long buying cycle like a car or truck is particularly difficult to sell online. International Autosource is further challenged to let people know they exist, educate them about options as an expat, and then gain enough trust to turn them into a lead, all through the website via Google search.
A further challenge is their diverse audience from diverse global locations, requiring highly tailored content that is unique, authoritative, valuable, and that ranks on page 1 of Google for the targeted keywords.
