SEM Analyst - Major Account

Chicago, Illinois


If an ad isn’t seen, can it have impact, change perception, or build brand trust? ABSOLUTELY NOT. It’s crazy to think that an estimated 56% of all display ads have no chance of ever being seen by a human – and to rub salt into the wound, so many of the ads we do see are irrelevant and off target. Here at TMP we’ve built a platform and strategy to combat these issues. We create objective based campaigns that stay on-target and provide value to the end user – ultimately delivering positive outcomes and rich insights to our clients with sophisticated measures that limit inefficiency and waste. As an SEM Media Analyst, you will be part of a team that is driving the future of marketing.
