“We have truly appreciated a dramatically increased inquiry flow. We were thrilled to discover our leads doubling and even tripling in many cases!

”At St. Luke’s we have a very strong employment website. It is essential that we leverage our online application tool in order to effectively manage our applicant flow. We are very pleased with the results we have received from the SEM contract we purchased through the Houston Chronicle. Our internal reporting supports the reporting we receive from the Chronicle which shows that our SEM campaign is driving hundreds of clicks to our employment site every month. In fact, the search engines we use through this campaign are always among the top referring sites. In short there is no way we would be able to leverage Search Engine Marketing effectively without the Houston Chronicle.”
