Ben Austin, Absolute Digital Media CEO
As the proud CEO of Absolute Digital Media, myself (Ben Austin) and the in-house team work hard to push the conventional boundaries of the search landscape. As an expert in SEO, paid search, content marketing, social media, web development, design and CRO, UX and analytics, I take an integrated approach to all online search campaigns to enhance results and improve return on investment for every Absolute Digital Media client.
I founded Absolute Digital Media back in 2008, though we were known as SEO Positive until 2012, when the company underwent it’s first rebrand. In an effort to expand the services we could provide, I felt that a fresh new look and a new identity would help us position more effectively in the digital marketing industry, with a more inclusive company name.
From finance and business, to health, fashion and charity, Absolute Digital Media have worked across a number of industries, including some of the most competitive markets. As a company, we’ve produced award-winning strategies for some of our partners and clients, integrating all of our services to drive every client to the top of their market.

Ben Austin recommendations
I've been working with Ben and the Absolute Digital Media team for years now, as I took them along with me to every role and company I went to throughout the time we've known each other. Ben is a truly agile professional, and I think that Absolute's expertise is to truly tailor their services to the needs of each customer. A lot of agencies take pride in that exact trait without the ability to deliver, not Absolute. If you're from the brand side, and you are a bit hesitant about working with a marketing agencies to support your efforts, I'd definitely recommend giving Ben a call - his top priority won't be to tie you up in a long term contract with no escape, but to really do what works best for you, your budget and needs - which is so rare in this industry. Needless to say, I highly recommend working with Ben and his team.
"I have worked alongside Ben on a number of projects over the years, and he has continued to pass on his extensive knowledge and expertise of the industry to help improve our results in a consistent manner. He has a professional, hands-on approach, and is a very motivated individual looking to always get the best out of everything and everyone on a campaign. It has been a pleasure working with Ben, and he always goes the extra mile to exceed all client’s expectations."
