Acquisition Advances Agency's Local and Mobile Marketing Offerings

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/27/14 -- The Search Agency, a global online marketing firm and one of the largest independent U.S. search marketing agencies, has announced that it has completed the acquisition of MoFuse, the leader in mobile web solutions for small and local businesses. With this acquisition, The Search Agency now offers a more comprehensive digital marketing solution -- complete with a robust mobile web management platform and search marketing solution -- helping small businesses extend their online presence and better succeed in local marketing efforts. As part of the acquisition, the MoFuse platform will be integrated within The Search Agency's AdMax® Local platform, the first fully-automated platform introduced to enable resellers of paid search to price, build, manage, optimize and report on high quality, hyper-local search campaigns for multiple businesses at scale.

Through the integration with MoFuse, The Search Agency's AdMax Local reseller partners can now also enable local businesses to build and drive traffic to high quality mobile sites. The platform also gives resellers the means to manage both the landing page and traffic generation of their sites, which enables them to better optimize and drive greater leads for their products and services.

"Marketers that are creating online local campaigns must focus on presence, leads and activation. Before you can create a digital marketing campaign, you must establish an online and mobile presence to be easily found by new and existing customers," said Ben Gibson, global managing director of AdMax Local and international agency services, The Search Agency. "With the acquisition of MoFuse, The Search Agency can now manage both the site creation and the generation of traffic to direct to those destinations. This comprehensive experience will drive more calls and greater lead volume while inciting more website visits, allowing them to meet their revenue goals quicker."

The acquisition of MoFuse will also provide AdMax Local resellers with more sophisticated call tracking functionality, enabling businesses to better understand where digital marketing activity should be focused. The Search Agency's Specialist Design Team will build fully custom sites to align with each brand's goals and manage both pre- and post-click experiences, driving improved campaign results.

"We share The Search Agency's vision to align all digital marketing capabilities into a one-stop-shop -- from the creation of engaging mobile web experiences to the mechanisms that drive action," said Annette Tonti, CEO, MoFuse. "Together, MoFuse and AdMax Local can now provide a single platform for businesses to maximize their online marketing strategies across multiple platforms."

MoFuse will be folded into The Search Agency's portfolio of companies, and its platform is available for The Search Agency and its AdMax Local partners for immediate use. To learn more about The Search Agency's AdMax Local solution, visit: http://www.thesearchagency.com/admax2local/
