ST. PAUL, MN--(Marketwire - Sep 13, 2012) - OptiMine Software, a provider of paid search keyword bid management software that helps digital advertisers dramatically increase financial performance, today announced that the total advertising spend under OptiMine management more than tripled in the first half of 2012. Furthermore, OptiMine has grown the number of customer keywords its software bids on daily by over 700 percent, marking significant expansion for the company and creating market awareness around the software's ability to dramatically enhance paid search performance through superior optimization analytics.
This improved performance is reflected in OptiMine's trial results, which have consistently proven the company's PPC bid management software improves advertisers' paid search financial results through superior bid optimization. In its last 45 trials against a wide range of incumbent keyword bidding systems, OptiMine increased advertiser financial results by at least 25 percent in 73 percent of the trials. In 40 percent of the trials, results increased by over 50 percent. OptiMine's global optimization software with modeling done at the individual keyword level and with multiple models is critical to this demonstrated success.
"We are delighted with the financial improvements OptiMine customers realize by managing their paid search campaigns at the individual keyword level," said Jim Moar, CEO of OptiMine. "More than ever, performance-obsessed advertisers understand that keyword bid optimization is critical to overall paid-search financial performance. This knowledge has contributed to OptiMine's growth in recent months."
In addition to customer results growth, OptiMine has continued to expand its leadership by hiring Sefton Cohen as Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales and Michelle Jesse as Vice President, Marketing.
