Search Engine Marketing (SEM)

Your business or organization thrives on what makes it unique. That includes everything from the products you sell and the services you offer to the very zip code in which you or your potential customers or clients are located. How do you make sure they know where you are or how to find you?

Who's Looking Where?

The majority of modern consumers look to the Internet, and the majority of those are looking for local shops, restaurants, businesses and service organizations. Many have personalized their search settings to return results based on their location, and even more still include localized keywords and phrases in their searches. So a customer in Asheville can find your store in Brevard, a member of your congregation in Greenville can find your sister church in Atlanta, and that fitness enthusiast who signed up for your gym in Chicago can find a franchise branch while visiting her mother in Toledo. And that’s not even touching on the growing number of smart phone and tablet users who perform the same searches while on the go using their mobile devices.

With search engine marketing, your business is more likely to be found by the people who are looking for you, when and where they're looking. So don't lead them astray or leave them out in the cold. Make sure you can be found.

Our Services

Our search engine marketing services include:

  • Registering Your Business: Ensure Google, Bing, Yahoo & AOL recognize and index your business accurately by registering the site with webmaster tools and their internal directories.
  • Directory Listings: There are approximately 40 major online directories that play an influencing role on search engine results for business listings. While there are companies and programs that provide these services, they are often prohibitively expensive and do not provide service commensurate with their costs. Sounds Essential provides an alternative.
  • Niche Markets: Each industry has its own unique network of resources for listing and providing information on its members and practitioners. From real estate directories to artist indexes and more, we can help ensure you or your business are found.

  • Duncan has been an AWESOME example of professionalism and service. Despite the time differences, he has been very quick to respond to the requests and has been very thorough, giving his time through Skype/shared screen, to fully understand the project. Bridging the gap between a customer's requests and the technical specifications is not always an easy task, but he was patient, knowledgeable and very helpful indeed. I would recommend him very highly.
