Founded in 2007, RateSpecial Interactive is a technology-driven interactive media and marketing company specialising in traffic acquisition, monetization, and product strategy. Its headquarters are in Southern California, with a second office in the United Kingdom.
RateSpecial Interactive is co-founded by three highly qualified individuals with decades of experience. They have worked with Realtor.com, Autobytel, Low.com and Autotrader. Having experienced leadership allowed RateSpecial Interactive to rank on Inc. 5000 for four consecutive years (2012–ratespec2015).
RateSpecial Interactive’s website does not list the services it provides. It only describes itself as an innovative technology-driven interactive media and marketing company, which provides little detail on what clients can expect.
RateSpecial Interactive does not provide any case studies or examples of work on its website. This is particularly disappointing for an agency that has been in business since 2007. Potential clients have limited resources to determine if RateSpecial Interactive is the right choice for their business.
RateSpecial advertises its focus as matching relevant traffic to relevant products. This implies it provides some form of SEO services, but it is not a certified partner with either Google or Microsoft (Bing). A marketing agency does not need to be a certified partner to offer quality SEO services, but partnership status does ensure the agency is using white hat practices for its clients.
