Enhance Interactive Description

Marchex is an advertising network that was formerly called Enhance Interactive. The network helps Internet marketers get more calls from potential customers, generate traffic from sites that help visitors find local results, and also give them more reach in their advertising through high trafficked sites like CNN, BusinessWeek, and more.

Enhance Interactive Detailed Overview

For many years, Enhance Interactive has been one of the better known 2nd tier pay per click search engines. It has provided a solid service and traffic for cheap rates except that there were mixed results the traffic. Enhance Interactive has revamped the network and is now called Marchex.

The company is based out of Seattle and offers different solutions towards different kinds of businesses. Google Adwords is a free for all situation where one man entrepreneurs are up against huge companies but Marchex has solutions for small offline local businesses, small firms in need of quality leads, and even businesses that need tons of traffic.

The first service they offer is the local advertising option. They help you get your business listed on sites like Yelp.com, Yellowpages.com, Yahoo, Google, and MSN. Altogether Marchex has over 100 sources that show local advertising results and they provide you with detailed analysis/reporting features. You can even manage your reputation on sites where customers review your business. This can be used to address complaints, find out what’s wrong, and fight naysayers that want to hurt your reputation.

Then there is the Marchex Pay-For-Call that distributes your ad and charges you whenever a prospect calls your number. This is very effective as the pay per call model can be a cheaper method to acquire leads compared to pay per click. There are reports on conversion rates, help with your recorded message, and more.

Finally, you can get greatly expand your reach by placing your ads on top branded sites such as PCworld, Kiplinger.com, Blackberry, Razorfish, and more. These sites attract millions of visitors, and you get great control of your ad. You can choose which sites, pick your category, choose keywords, and even your bid price. Unfortunately, the category selection is broad, and many niche businesses will not fare well on these sites.

If you want to join the ranks of the branded sites, you can take part in Marchex’s publisher program. You will only qualify if you have a site that gets a lot of traffic as the network is selective about the quality and popularity of your site. You can choose the placements, bid prices, and types of ads if you do get to be a publisher, which is a huge plus.

Enhance Interactive Reputation

I really am impressed with the local advertising solution and pay per call models offered by Marchex. There have been positive reviews from customers for both of these solutions. I did wish there was a solution for the average Internet marketer that doesn’t have a local business or a business that uses call centers to generate leads and sales.

Competitive price PPC , but traffic quality is not good

I joined Enhance Interactive Review because I saw that this PPC (pay per click) network offers advertising campaigns for just 0.03 cents and this price seemed very competitive for me, as I was paying almost 10 times more in Google Adwords, so I decided to try this advertising network. Firstly, I was really happy that I got $25 for my advertising campaign as a sign-up bonus, so I needed less money for my first order. Moreover, my advertising campaign was approved almost instantly. And the last, but not the least, I got very informative statistics, which definitely had same quality as Google Adwords. On the other hand, this advertising network had a few disadvantages. I had to pay $50 as this was a minimum price for advertising order and I think that it is definitely too high as this advertising network is not very popular. Moreover, I can't say that I was happy with traffic quality, as it was really worse than Google Adwords. To sum up, I can recommend Enhance Interactive only to those people, who can't afford to advertise in Google Adwords due to high price of their keywords and want to find a cheaper alternative, but, as I said before, traffic quality on this advertising network is nor very great.

Try and see before you buy

I tried the trial a few months back to distribute pay per click ads on different websites and have more visitors to my site as a result.

Once I signed up I was greeted with a nice overview where I could see what keywords and ads I could have and on which sites, as well as which ads are currently being distributed. I found it one of the better overviews that I've encountered.

As for my visitor increase, I got a bit more visitors but most were not interested in what my site had to offer (which made my ads a bit pointless). The helpdesk was helpful but I got the feeling that they didn't care about their customers much (took a long time to answer and were a bit abrupt).

I don't think it's worth your money as the benefits aren't all that good. You could try the trial and see for yourself, at least that's free of charge.
