San Mateo, June 14, 2018 ‒ Searchmetrics, the leader in search and content optimization, today announced the launch of the Searchmetrics Digital Strategies Group, a services and consulting practice that helps brands and agencies deliver predictable wins in earned media marketing.

Guided by insights gained using award-winning Searchmetrics content marketing software, a team of experienced strategists, SEO tacticians and digital marketers will partner with customers and agencies to create content that consistently rises to the top of search engine results and engages with online audiences.

Volker, Smid, CEO, Searchmetrics says: “Content marketers have always understood earned media can be the most profitable part of any online strategy. Yet many have struggled to deliver the same predictable results as paid media. Our teams work at the forefront of search engine and content marketing, and the upshot is that we can help customers roll out more effective, revenue-enhancing content and search marketing strategies.”

The heart of the Searchmetrics Digital Strategies group approach is its Agile Content Development methodology, which places the target audience’s voice at the center of content marketing. Using the deep-learning insights of the award-winning Searchmetrics Suite software, Agile Content Development takes an iterative approach that continuously optimizes and aligns content to the changing needs and interests of the target audience.

Each engagement delivered by the Searchmetrics Digital Strategies group begins with detailed diagnostics to understand and evaluate customers’ strategic, technical, content and SEO efforts. In each case, the aim will be to leave the customer with a strategic and operational foundation that empowers the brand and agency’s SEO and content experts to succeed using the Searchmetrics Digital Strategies Group approach. Brand and agencies also can embed Searchmetrics experts within their organization.
