Directive Launches First Comprehensive Database for Search Marketing

AUSTIN, TEXAS (November 18, 2019) – Directive, a leading enterprise search marketing agency, launched the first database for search marketing, according to CEO and Co-founder Garrett Mehrguth.

Pulse organizes data from 25,000+ companies across 50+ industries and 800+ sub-industries. The platform enriches this data with valuable search marketing KPIs such as domain rating, keywords, traffic value, estimated ad spend, and more. Marketers and executives are now empowered with competitive insights in seconds, which would have previously required several platforms, hours of research, and thousands of dollars in software fees.

Mehrguth said, “The burning need we see for Pulse is that in-house marketers, agencies, and freelancers, currently have no way of benchmarking how they are performing compared to their entire industry.”

He continued saying, “As a CEO myself, I can be a victim to my ambition by setting goals that are unrealistic, given my brand’s domain rating or estimated ad spend compared to the competitors in my industry. Pulse is an unbiased third-party that gives marketers and executives the data to push back on unreasonable expectations and allows them to craft realistic goals that build momentum as they are accomplished.”

Pulse is a free product; however, there is an upgraded version for $19 a month. The upgrade includes the ability to export data easily to a CSV or PDF, and a fully-customizable data set creation, including up to 10 brands.
