Since our opening discussions, their experience so closely matches our own that we know we have found a winning combination in our partnership. The PPC brand campaign was vital in raising awareness of the Aldermore brand and we really needed equimedia’s expertise and creativity to create and execute stand out PPC brand campaigns.  Since then we have been delighted with the PPC brand awareness campaign results, especially appearing for the PPC search result ‘Best UK bank”.
