We Talk the talk and walk the walk.
From the time we initially developed this site for a BtoB client who wanted to test the BtoC waters in 2003, to when we first took the total operations of this online shop in 2007, we maintained top 5 search engine rankings for keywords national and multinational companies we ranking for, for over 7 years, and beat out top national competitors. With an extremely limited full-time shop staff and our inhouse SEO chops, we did millions in revenues based mainly on the strength of our SEO efforts. Yes, we were up against Brookstone and Sharper Image, and we beat them at their game on a shop run with only 2 full-time dedicated staff.
From a service stand-point as well as an actual bottom line issue, we know the importance of SEO, SEM, changing markets and increasing competition and how that fits into an overall marketing plan. The success of our shops is based on a carefully researched and maintained 1-2 punch of SEO & SEM & SMS / Viral creativity, and we strongly believe that online success is results from using a careful balance of various methods.
How many other agencies can say they have built and run successful shops based on their strong combination of SEM skills with SEO being a huge part of their revenues? We are one of the few marketing agencies which runs online shops itself, so we are more in touch with what it takes to be successful online than an agency who only makes revenues selling a service. For us is a life-and-death issue, not a value-added service we keep a few coders around for.
