Search Engine Marketing

Outrank your competitors and dominate on Google!

Outrank your competitors and dominate on Google!

SEM is the abbreviation given to Search Engine Marketing, the term meaning the marketing strategies you can employ on search engines (Google, Bing etc) to drive traffic to your website.

When it comes to search engine marketing, there are two main ways that you can get traffic to your site — Paid or Organic.


The difference between paid and organic traffic is simple. Paid traffic requires working out what search terms your customers are searching and then paying to appear when they make those searches. This is also known as Pay Per Click or PPC. We explain below the pros and cons.

Organic traffic means that your website is appearing in search results when someone makes a relevant search, and you don’t pay a cent when someone clicks on it. Having a great website is only the tip of the iceberg. The real challenge is driving qualified visitors to your website.

Most people start their search for a new product or service on a search engine, with a high percentage of people using Google. If you are not positioned on Google with SEO or PPC, you are missing out on a lot of business!

Our recommended strategy when it comes to search engine marketing is to start with SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) to ensure all technical aspects of your website are handled including Google Webmaster Tools being installed on your website, and ensuring your site has been successfully submitted to Google via a sitemap. We will then implement a range of SEO strategies to incrementally increase traffic to your website. This is however a slow burn marketing approach. It can take 3-4 months to see results of any real note. Later, we recommend PPC strategies. If you do SEO first, you will get a better result than without. However if you have an urgent need to gain visibility on search engines, on occasion we will jump straight to PPC strategies.

A top organic (SEO) ranking will achieve up to a 20-30% CTR, and a top paid (PPC) ranking with achieve up to a 15% CTR. But combining a top listing in both organic and paid has an exponential effect. Rather than A + B, a combination of both strategies will see you achieving a 20-30% bigger portion of the pie. We’ll drink to that!
