Search engine marketing is a fast-growing field that aims to drive more traffic to client websites through a variety of tactics which can include on-page optimization, directory registration, content management, online pr, pay per click management and website design. Businesses everywhere are understanding the value and noting the necessity of this service as websites have become an integral part of business revenue and online advertising has become the advertising medium of choice for some of the most established and innovative companies in existence.
The Baltimore/DC SEO Meetup Group was launched by Jon Payne, Owner and Principal of Ephricon Web Marketing, an internet marketing firm based in Baltimore, MD.
“I think all of us in the field spend a borderline-unhealthy amount of time staring at computer screens, typing long emails and keeping track of hundreds of blogs, forums, etc. Sometimes it’s just nice to have a little in-person interaction where you can have the back-and-forth discussion that is not as feasible on the web. It’s a nice chance to get out of the office and have a little change of scenery.”
The only Maryland-based agency listed in the SEO Consultants Directory, Mr. Payne’s firm specializes in search engine marketing for its portfolio of clients including individuals, professional service firms, mid-size companies. The one-time and ongoing management services offered to clients are a useful tool for drawing leads to clients and simply make websites more user-friendly.
