Defenders Inc. Partners with Chacka Marketing to Transition SEM Program In-House
Originally tasked with relaunching Defenders, Inc.’s paid search programs, Chacka Marketing has since helped develop the advertiser’s expertise to bring management in-house.
Defenders Inc. is one of the largest home security companies in North America, professionally installing security and monitoring systems in homes nationwide. Defenders selected Chacka in 2015 to relaunch its paid search programs and help establish advanced tracking and integrations across systems to tie inbound phone calls back to paid search click activity. Once the program was launched and integrated, efforts began to equip Defenders with the necessary knowledge to bring SEM management in-house.
Defenders sought the most effective way to internalize paid search efforts while retaining historical data, tracking and sophisticated integrations. Often in the digital marketing industry, transitioning programs from one agency or technology to another can lead to intensive relaunches and disruption to the SEM programs. Given the high efficiencies the program was driving; any program disruption was not an option.

Chacka proved their expertise managing our SEM programs with their full-service team, and have been tremendous partners helping to move the program management in-house.”– Edmund Mackey, VP Digital Defenders Inc.
