'The winner takes it all'. That's something we often come up against in online markets. For that reason, the smallest detail can make the difference in implementation, and a clear vision on online growth is what's needed. We've been helping our customers grow to the 'next level' with innovative marketing for the last ten years. We believe that you have to stay one step ahead in order to survive, and with this motivation, we can achieve resounding results: day in, day out.
We make 1-on-1 communication with target groups and people scalable and the effect measurable. Our core activities include purchasing, implementing and optimising online media in order to effectively reach target groups with the right message, at the right time. We always use customer data as a starting point: Oogst is a proven frontrunner in data use for online marketing, along with the technology required.
We started out over 10 years ago as a search engine specialist, and Search remains the firm foundation for Oogst. Our many years of experience in the most challenging online markets make us a partner at every level: from strategy to operation, from designing processes to training people and implementing technology.
We evaluate both branding and performance marketing based on clear KPIs, and we are 100% transparent with regard to purchasing costs, results and activities
We provide the knowledge, continuity and drive to ramp an organisation up to the next level in a structured maturity approach. We often work with our clients on location. Our clients value our professional attitude and personal contact.
Online performance marketing involves working with people. Attracting, training and efficiently deploying experts is an important component of our success as an office, as is knowledge transfer to our clients, and continual innovation.
By sharing the knowledge of publications such as Emerce, Marketing Facts and Twinkle and speaking at leading events, we continually work on our reputation as an innovative online marketing agency. Oogst has been selected as one of the top 5 in the Emerce top 100 in digital marketing, search engine marketing and web analytics categories for many years running. In 2015, Oogst was evaluated as being top in these last two categories.
Besides having achieved recognition from Google as a professional and leading search engine marketing agency and web analytics expert, we are one of very few agencies that support the Premium version of Google Analytics and the only agency with two Relay42 accredited marketers.
Since December 2017, Oogst has been part of Merkle; an international performance marketing agency. As an independent label with 85 branches and almost 5,000 employees, Merkle is part of a global network of data-driven agencies. In the Netherlands, in addition to Oogst omni-channel marketing agency Oxyma, creative mobile agency aFrogleap, full service social media agency Your Social and fulfilment solutions agency OFS are part of the group. A unique combination of complementary expertise with which we manage a large part of the customer journey.
With a firm foundation in search engine marketing, performance improvement and advertising, Oogst provide all the ingredients for making your online marketing campaigns a success. We consider it highly important to be able to demonstrate our ability to take the lead in our subject area. Oogst and its staff have been officially accredited by Google in a range of areas, making us a reliable and professional partner.
As a company, we not only have an economic responsibility, but a social one too. For that reason, we support any initiatives that we view as necessary or that we are sympathetic to. This support can be financial, but can also be a simple case of making our knowledge and expertise available.
This is how Oogst supports the KidsRights foundation. KidsRights helps highly vulnerable children across the world and is committed to representing their rights. Oogst gives the partner organisation Bachpan Bachao Andolan, which fights against child labour in India, an annual financial injection. If you would like to support KidsRights, find out how you can lend a hand on their ‘Help us’ page.
We hold regular talks relating to our subject area at congresses and seminars. Congresses and seminars are an important way of sharing our knowledge with the wider public. These talks often deal with online marketing for specific branches, use of Big Data or other sub-regions that are in development. In addition, we organise workshops and master classes around a specific topic. Our target group includes online marketers, e-commerce managers along with data analysts and web analysts.
Oogst staff hold talks at colleges and universities a number of times each year. Oogst has a partnership with a range of institutes and educational establishments to stimulate the development of knowledge of online marketing and to motivate talent. At the University of Amsterdam, for example, we provide knowledge and support to students as part of the entrepreneurship minor.
We also publish blogs on a regular basis dealing with topics that our customers consider important. We handle new developments relating to online marketing and provide an insight into current and subject-specific topics. We do this both on our own blog page and in a range of media such as Emerce, Marketingfacts and Twinkle.
