Search Engine Marketing (SEM) is the ongoing process of promoting your website on the Internet in attempts to achieve better placement on search engines for your chosen keywords. There are a number of ways SEM can be performed, broken down into three major categories: organic marketing, subscribed (Google Adwords or Pay Per Click) and SMM (Social Media Marketing).
Reaching your target audience requires multiple methods of Search Engine Marketing. Contact us to learn more.
Organic marketing, if done correctly, covers methods that result in your website being elevated in the natural rankings in search engine results pages. That is, based on the keywords you select, search engines evaluate their relevance to your website based on content and popularity, and your website is assigned a position in the search engine listings above or below your competition’s. Common organic marketing techniques include article writing, blog posting, social media bookmarking, professional network linking, online press releases, and other link-building resources. Done properly and within the webmaster guidelines published by major search engine companies, organic marketing is effective. Done excessively, irresponsibly, or unethically, improper organic marketing is labeled “black hat” and can get your website banned from search engine listings altogether.
The nature of organic marketing success is “cumulative effort yields long term results”.

When setting up your campaign, we’ll examine both desktop and mobile ads to ensure you’re targeting your audience wherever they are.
