A Company History That Starts With Fishing, Some Say
James had an idea, probably while he was fishing, to start a business in 2007 with two goals.
Number one: help small to medium-sized businesses grow with a solid digital strategy using search engines that would increase their visibility to potential customers while demonstrating the value behind a strong online presence.
Number two: spend more time fishing.
Since 2007, Strategic Marketing, Inc. (our friends call us SMI) has had one focus; Search Engine Marketing (SEM) as a holistic digital solution. We seek to understand our clients’ business goals and help them exceed it. As an analytics-led company, we build solutions based on the specific needs of your business. Those needs will differ depending on the goals of the company, and that agility is where we thrive.
In the SEM space, our success is synonymous with your success. That means we keep our finger on the digital pulse of this ever-changing, dynamic industry and we bring that information back to you to harness it to its fullest potential. Not to mention, we love what we do. That’s not a sentiment. That’s a fact.
Regarding James’ second goal, well, when he’s not fishing, he can still wholeheartedly say that he gets to do what makes him happy every day.
