  • has been known for its work in pay-per-click search engine marketing with a strong focus on conversions (this helped PurpleClick win six Digital Agency of the Year Awards between 2009 and 2015).
  • has developed online marketing campaigns for multinational companies, government agencies, and small and medium enterprises alike, winning numerous industry awards along the way.
  • is the first and only digital agency in Southeast Asia with Google, Yahoo!, and Baidu accreditation.

“We’re very excited to show Philippine companies all that can be achieved through smart, performance-driven digital marketing. The Philippines is one of the most digitally connected countries in the world, and there’s so much for companies here to gain from a well-implemented online marketing strategy,” said PurpleClick Philippines CEO Piccina Alvarez.

PurpleClick Philippines is a venture between Philippine tech incubator Hatchd Digital and Singapore’s PurpleClick Media. PurpleClick was brought to the Philippines through the joint efforts of its investors Hatchd’s Manny Ayala and Marilen Tantamco, and PurpleClick’s Founder Leonard Tan and CEO Kriss Channe.
