Seattle Advertising the Northwest leader

Seattle advertising launched its website on the internet in October of 1989 as a file on ARCHIE and has the distinction of being the worlds first web design firm.

Site #202 on the internet.

Since then Seattle advertising has been at the forefront of design, branding, and SEO since the early days of the internet. Our staff is made up of Google and Bing engineers and our clients have us brand and advertise new apps, new software, small businesses, and large corporations that seek to have an epic brand that really shines on the internet!

We coined the phrase "SEO" in 1991 but SEO no longer is effective. 

Today, its all about reviews, press, content, and branding.

We launch the best apps in the world and it all boils downt to branding first, then advertising.

Our press relationships allow us to get featured articles across the digital spectrum and our ability to brand with reviews and map certifications is legendary.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Each optimized platform secured top-ranked keyword results on both Google and Bing. Revamped designs imbue them with unique, modern aesthetics. All four hotels are now the first Google Maps result up to 75 miles away. Informed, pleasant, and transparent, Seattle Advertising was a reliable partner.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I run the bar program for a family-owned string of boutique hotels on the West Coast. Our company has several brands. Many locations have their own dining establishments like a bar or restaurant. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Seattle Advertising, Inc?

Our websites were outdated and we only had one map on Google that pointed to our parent property. Our project focused on revamping the design for each hotel’s specific web page. In addition, we needed distinct Google Maps ads to promote each of our locations. 

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted each of our properties to have its own unique website and show up as a separate location on Google Maps. 

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We heard about Julian (Vice President, Seattle Advertising, Inc) from some of the developers at a GPS company who often stay at our hotels. We looked up Seattle Advertising on Google and contacted them about supporting this project.

Describe the project in detail.

Seattle Advertising designed and developed four different websites for each of our properties. They optimized each platform to improved its search rankings for the establishment’s corresponding city. Lastly, they targeted visibility for each hotel’s corresponding ad on Google Maps.

What was the team composition?

We worked directly with Dan Anderson.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any statistics or metrics that speak to the quality of their work and impact of the engagement?

Seattle Advertising produced results that are well worth the money we invested in their services. The SEO strategy they implemented ranked our sites at the top of relevant search results on both Bing and Google. The techniques they used to improve our visibility on Google Maps positioned our hotels as the top result locally, and even as far as 75 miles away. 

How did the Seattle Advertising, Inc perform from a project management standpoint?

Seattle Advertising called at least twice a week. As an inexperienced client with little knowledge of the SEO space, we required extension discussions.  The team was always nice, and they answered all of our questions. They worked extremely hard for our company. 

What impresses you about the Seattle Advertising, Inc?

Over the years, we hadn’t achieved any results with at least ten different SEO agencies and web designers. These teams had just taken our money and made excuses for poor performance. After explaining our experience to Seattle Advertising, they said: "don't pay us until you see the first website rank highly." As promised, they boosted our platform up to a higher search result, earning our trust. We awarded them the rest of the contract for all our other hotels
