The Origin Story

How we got started

Exact Click Digital was founded by Leo Ebbert in Knoxville, TN in 2007. We’ve worked with businesses from the US, Australia, Canada, Germany, Israel, India, and more. Our focus from the very beginning was on the need to generate actual revenue for our clients, not just traffic or impressions.

The ECD Difference

Why choose Exact Click Digital?

We are results-driven. We don’t just focus on getting you more traffic, we want to drive new business for you at a substantial return on investment. Our confidence that we can do so is one reason we don’t require long-term contracts and charge a flat fee to manage ads.

We pride ourselves on being a small boutique agency offering a specialized service. Large agencies have diluted talent pools and overpriced business models that don’t align with the interests of their clients.

We’ve purposely avoided the big agency business model. It has allowed us to stay true to what we are — paid ads experts. Our model of service aligns our interests with the interests of the businesses we serve.

Our Guiding Principles

Here's how we do it:

Live the Golden Rule

It’s a profoundly simple idea but it guides everything. Treat everyone you deal with the way you might hope they would if your positions were swapped.

We give a sh*t (really!)

Life and work is a lot more fun if you take care of those around you whether they’re clients, employees, or partners.

Never chase an update or response.

We hate being neglected ourselves, so we don’t neglect our clients.

Never be locked into a long-term contract

Our clients stay because they want to.

Never wonder if your brand matters

You’ll never wonder if you matter with us.

No jerks

We want to work with people that we’d have over for a family bbq.

Speak the truth and speak plainly

We don’t sugar coat, especially when it comes to your business.
