SEOMG! – On what it takes to be a good employer and business

SEOMG! is an award-winning SEO and content marketing agency which was founded in the height of the pandemic. At a time when other businesses struggled, SEOMG! flourished. Their then team of two grew into a team of 14, but their mission has stayed the same: to create SEO (search engine optimisation) that wows people.

Oli Robertson of SEOMG! says that ‘So many agencies struggle to do anything out of the ordinary and it’s our aim to do things a little differently. Rather than simply loading the team with senior staff members, we work to a strategy of recruiting hungry and raw graduates with a passion for learning.

We then train and mentor them to become experts in their field. What this means is that we’re able to grow the local digital marketing talent pool, provide an affordable service to our clients and give young talent a kickstart in their marketing careers.’

But SEOMG! goes a step further than ensuring their staff are fairly paid. They are also a company that adopts a 4-day work week with a hybrid work approach. They want to ensure their staff have valuable time outside work to ensure they’re more productive in work.

Robertson goes on to say that ‘Marketing, and digital as a whole, pays pretty well, with great prospects to learn and grow your career quite quickly. But there is certainly more scope for organisations to sign up to an official body such as Living Wage and promote the good work they are doing.’

Their advice to other businesses? ‘If the work you do is great, be proud and shout about it. You never know, you could get shortlisted and even win an award!’

SEOMG! can be found in sunny Hove with their offices overlooking the sea. And the best part – they’re hiring. If you want to join a great team that values their staff then get in touch:
