SEM Consultants – Digital Marketing Specialists
SEM Consultants are a digital marketing agency specialising in pay per click advertising (PPC), search engine optimisation (SEO), social media marketing and web design. We offer a holistic, personal approach to digital services and are specialists in our field with combined expertise honed by years in the industry. We take the time to understand your business and the unique challenges you face and work closely to ensure sustained growth and results, time and again.
What we can do for you
- As an experienced digital services agency, we acknowledge that every client and their business needs are completely different. To accommodate this, we have fully adaptable teams that can pinpoint the best course of action and work to achieve and surpass each client’s individual business goals.
- We build tailor-made marketing strategies, through which we can generate a specialised digital consultancy plan to cater to your business needs.
- Our Birmingham digital marketing specialists forensically research your product or service to ensure that we are targeting the most profitable keywords and phrases.
- As Google Partners & Microsoft accredited experts, we target your PPC marketing campaign to specific geographic regions, so you don’t waste money advertising your product or service in areas that you don’t cover.
- Adjust keyword bids accordingly based on the device that is being used, as many people will search differently on smartphones as opposed to tablets and desktops.
- Analyse the best time of day to maximise exposure and minimise your wasted spend by using day parting and advanced script level bid adjustments.
Our process is simple
Transparency is imperative to SEM Consultants’ ethos.
Your accounts are set up in your name using an email address and contact details provided by you. A dedicated account manager will always manage your digital marketing campaign, whether you require PPC services, web design services or SEO content writing services. They will always be willing to help, whenever you require.
We appreciate and emphasise the importance of client relationships at SEM Consultants. Therefore, we always encourage frequent communication between our outgoing account managers and you, our client. Our Birmingham-based digital marketing account managers keep you informed of the latest developments with your marketing campaigns, just as we encourage clients to ask questions or call for a chat.
Through customer rapport, being involved with your marketing strategy and informing us of changes in your business objective, we can produce the most formidable 360 digital marketing campaign worthy of our Google Partner status.
As well as ongoing support, SEM generates a detailed monthly report for every client. We highlight the monthly spend, targeted keywords, the number of conversions, overall revenue, campaign reach and the frequency of ads in simple terms to help you monitor your digital marketing success.
You are never left in the dark when you work with the digital marketing specialists at SEM Consultants.
Our managing director Mark Hickman has been involved in websites and online marketing for over 15 years. Hailing from a background in website sales and maintenance, Mark decided to set up his own company in 2008 specialising in SEO & PPC and hence SEM Consultants was born.
As a new startup in 2008, we shared an office with another tech business and began to flourish quickly. In the space of two years, our small but close-knit team were ready to have their own office space.
Our First Office Space
2010 was the year when we finally had our own office space. In a small room space, our talented team focussed on their skills and started to see some impressive growth for all the clients under their remit.
Our collective expertise widened to more industry sectors than ever before and we helped our partners in both e-commerce and lead generation sectors. It was during this time that we added some key members of the team who are still with us today. We also achieved official Google Partner status, an accreditation we are still proud to hold.
The First Rebrand
Having seen continued growth in the years from 2008 to 2012, we once again outgrew our cosy office space. Luckily, we only moved 100 yards from our previous space to a more plush setting. Our team swelled massively and we now have specialisms in Link Building, Content Generation, Search Ads and Shopping Ads to name a few. The added expertise in our family enabled us to achieve a Premier Google Partner status as well as becoming an accredited agency in the Microsoft Advertising Partners platform.
During this time we oversaw our first re-brand. Aligning our brand with design trends at the time ensured our “freshness” was preserved.
Our Team is Our Strength
Appreciating that growth comes at a price, the executive team decided to put our valued team first and relocate once again – this time at a location that ticked many boxes for our team. Close to shops, bars & restaurants, our new office location allows our team members to have a more relaxing and leisurely surrounding to do what they do best, create and execute the very best digital marketing campaigns.
Appreciating the many facets of digital marketing, we decided to add more specialisms to our repertoire:
By adding these services to our arsenal we have several different digital marketing specialities covered under one roof.
The Future – A New Dawn
In 2020 senior members of the management team, Bhupinder Bhogal & Mike Woodcock joined the board having steered SEM in a new direction. Steering the way for SEM Consultants to become the industry-leading digital marketing agency it is today.
“We went back to basics and put some thought into our core values and identified our five core values being proactive, passionate, caring, trusted and taking ownership. These five core values, in turn, became our new mission statement which emphasised our values over the last decade”
By being proactive and passionate we deliver the most caring and trusted service by taking ownership of our client’s campaigns
As a result of our new mission statement, we welcome you to re-brand number two! With a clear motto that underpins the above mission statement. Our focus is solely on you, our most valued partners, without whom we wouldn’t be where we are today. Together with your help, we can help you grow into leaders in your industry.
