I worked with Indago Media after a glowing recommendation from an ex-colleague, and they didn't disappoint. They sorted out my technical & on-page SEO and run some PPC activity. The the results were fantastic (top of Google News for one!) and communication was spot on throughout. I would happily recommend any time.
Reports - I run my own ppc agency and asked if indago media could help me create some really custom reports. Working in paid search for 11 years I know how important reporting is for myself and my clients. What Andy has done has blown me & my clients away! Couldn't be happier, all the metrics that I need to report on to my clients he has been done with minimum fuss. Couldn't recommend highly enough! I will be using indago again
