I'm Ben Austin

Digital Marketing Expert and CEO of Absolute Digital Media

Ben Austin, Absolute Digital Media CEO

My knowledge of search-based marketing has sprouted from a passion for all things digital. As the world of search has expanded, updated and adapted to changing consumer demands and technological capabilities, I’m proud to have taken an innovative approach to keeping up with it all, with years’ of experience in working with incredible companies and brands across the globe, enhancing their presence in the SERPs in compliance with the Quality Rater Guidelines through my company Absolute Digital Media.

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.
