So What Makes Our SEO Agency in Cleveland Different?

There are many companies that offer internet marketing services, but there are several things that make us different from the rest, including:

1. We’re a Local Digital Marketing Company

If you’re a company based in Cleveland, Ohio, it’s understandable that you’d like your online marketing company to also be in the local area.

Both our headquarters in Rocky River and our downtown office are within proximity to all of northeast Ohio and many major cities within the state, meaning that we can meet you in person, rather than just on a video or conference call.

That face-to-face communication is key in closely working with you to determine your Cleveland digital marketing goals.

2. Experience in a Wide Range of Industries

Unlike other digital marketing companies in Cleveland that only cater to one business type, we have worked with businesses of all sorts, including some of these well-known Cleveland area businesses you may recognize:

  • Kent State University
  • Play: CLE
  • IX Center
  • FitWorks
  • Clear Choice Photo Booth
  • Lava Room Recording

From home services to manufacturing and everything in-between, you can trust that our experience providing SEO and PPC in Cleveland is always tailored and customized toward your field and its goals:

3. We’re a Smaller SEO Agency

Given that our Cleveland digital marketing agency houses less than ten people, we’re able to customize the marketing campaigns we work on to be tailored specifically to your goals. Some key points to remember:

  • Similar to a how a smaller class size in school helps provide a higher level of closeness and understanding, our smaller agency allows us to establish a connection with your company and focus on providing high-quality content personalized to your business.
  • The strategy we use for your marketing efforts will be unique and based solely on your goals, industry and target audience.
  • Our team enjoys working together not only at work, but outside the office as well, which helps us produce better quality work for all of our clients because we truly enjoy the marketing we do, and who we do it with.

4. All of Our Efforts are In-House

Within our local Cleveland office, we’ve had the privilege of growing an experienced team over the last few years. As a result, the services that we provide are all conducted in-house by a hand-picked crew of hard-working professionals.

Through keeping our staff under the same company roof, we are able to collaborate more efficiently and ensure that the quality of our work never falters. Not to mention, being in-house also assures that we can keep our culture in tip-top shape at all times.

5. Our Ability to Show Results

With all of our Cleveland-based digital marketing efforts being measurable, it’s easy to provide you with clear, concise results. Depending on the tactics you choose to employ within your company, some of these results can be measured through:

  • Online form submissions
  • Phone calls from your website
  • Overall site traffic, and the traffic’s point of origin
    • Via search engines, paid ads, social media, direct, and referrals
  • Organic search engine traffic
  • Keyword rankings
