What We Do

Search Engine Marketing (SEM)

At Fern Street Strategic Marketing, we understand the value of a well-rounded, custom-tailored search engine marketing strategy.

We utilize a variety of search engine marketing tactics, including organic search engine optimization (SEO) and pay-per-click (PPC) marketing i.e. Google Ads.

Fern Street will help you develop and execute effective search engine marketing campaigns that drive targeted traffic to your site, expanding your reach, building brand awareness, and ultimately increasing sales.

What We Do

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

SEO is the practice of increasing the quantity and quality of traffic to your website through organic (unpaid) search engine results. This is accomplished by optimizing your website’s content, code and other off-site factors in order to increase your site’s visibility in organic search engine results.

So, what goes into SEO?

  • Quality of traffic – You can attract all the visitors in the world, but if they’re coming to your site because Google tells them you’re a resource for Apple computers when really you’re a farmer selling apples, that is not quality traffic. Instead you want to attract visitors who are genuinely interested in products or services that you offer.
  • Quantity of traffic – Once you have the right people clicking through from Google, more traffic is better.
  • Organic results – Ads make up a significant portion of many Google results, but organic traffic is any traffic that you don’t have to pay for.

Fern Street always considers the following factors when creating any SEO campaign:

  • How search engines work
  • Algorithms that dictate search engine behavior
  • What your target audiences are searching for
  • The actual search terms typed into search engines

Pay-Per-Click (PPC)

PPC marketing is different from SEO in that you are paying for your business’ listing. It allows you to display your ads in the sponsored results sections of search engines, which look nearly identical to organic site results. When done correctly, PPC can be a highly effective part of your digital marketing strategy. When done poorly, however, it can be a waste of money. So, why try to do it yourself and be unsure if your campaign will be effective? Let Fern Street handle all your search engine marketing, including PPC, while you focus on other important aspects of your business.

Finding the Perfect Balance

The ideal search engine marketing plan incorporates both SEO and PPC. You might be wondering why you would need to pay for ads if you are already utilizing unpaid SEO. The short answer is: no matter how much you optimize your website or how much new content you continuously create, there will never be a guarantee that your website will rank at the top of Page 1 on Google. Whereas, PPC marketing guarantees placement of your ads at the top of Page 1, ensuring you will get your desired target audience to your site consistently. And the more traffic to your site, especially this highly targeted traffic, the more sales you will make. After all, Fern Street’s ultimate goal of all search engine marketing is to help you find, get, and keep customers!
