AD7 founder, Steve Tarbard, began his career in direct response advertising over 20 years ago. For 17 of these years he has focused on digital advertising. Throughout his career, Steve has constantly strived to develop and progress, not only his own understanding, but he has also encouraged progress among the whole field of PPC (Pay-Per-Click) advertising.
Award Winning Agency
Steve launched his own advertising agency, Connected Media, in 2008, which went on to become one of the first Google Premier Partners in the UK. In 2017, Steve amalgamated his knowledge gained at Connected Media to start Beyond Clicks; his second agency to gain Google Partnership. In order to gain a Google Premier Partnership, the agency has had to prove its ability grow and sustain growth for customers, among other key factors. Learn more about Google Partners here.
Since Beyond Clicks' inception, Steve and his team have worked across a range of industries, such as; law, retail and insurance. All of the team at Beyond Clicks are fully Google and Bing certified, meaning they have the most relevant and extensive knowledge in the industry. Within the competitive and ever-changing digital market, Steve and his team have made it their mission to be at the forefront of online advertising development. This has meant constantly learning and training, using proven techniques which allow the team to excel within each sector. In 2018, Beyond Clicks were acknowledged within the industry for their high standard of work. They were awarded, ‘Leading PPC Agency 2018 - Essex’ in the Corporate Excellence Awards.
Despite having a successful online advertising agency, Steve was not content to stop progressing. He saw the potential for growth within the industry and continued to develop strategies for improvement. This is what inspired his decision to develop AD7. He noticed that there was a gap in the market for small businesses and believed that he could use his knowledge to bridge this gap by creating a tool, which even online advertising novices can understand and use to grow their business.
