In order to ensure that the Agency’s marketing team can generate good results from your Google and Facebook shopping campaigns, it is necessary that you fill in crucial product information, such as title, description, images, inventory, variables (sizes and colors) and the Google Product Category when possible. Since Google Shopping does not use keywords to trigger ads and only uses product information available in the feed (catalog), the Client must fill in this information. We’ve noticed that clients who leave their product descriptions blank have had the most problems.
All media and advertising account costs remain payable directly between the Client and the advertising provider (Facebook, Google). The Agency uses the Client’s existing advertising account.

Note that the Agency does not create a Facebook page or a Facebook advertising account. The Agency is not responsible for the payment of media fees (click spending).

The Agency will not incur costs for any click above or below 10% of this agreed maximum budget, except with the written approval to the contrary by the Client. Client’s PPC click budget does not guarantee that they will capture the total demand in their market, and as such, the ad budget is distributed throughout the month. If demand and performance exceed the allocated budget, the Agency will provide budget recommendations to the Client.
Approval of the use of trademarks
Search engines and social networks apply protection to certain trademarks at the request of the trademark owner. The Agency facilitates the process of approving the use of trademarks used by the Client, where applicable.
