Digital marketing is something that remains at the top of a number of businesses to-do list, with few undertaking any type of “marketing” activity to further promote their brand. I, Ben Austin, saw a gap in the market for this and wanted to create a marketing agency that would promote expert marketing services at an affordable cost so that other business owners and managers could continue to focus on what mattered the most to their business. Here’s my story.
The Start Of My SEO Career
SEO has the potential to drive businesses to the top of their industry, helping to carve out a strong position within the market. Understanding this is what kick-started my career in search engine optimisation.
After failing to experience the success I had hoped from another agency’s SEO efforts, I decided to “SEO” my site myself, which ultimately lead me to where I am today.
After discovering my passion for all things digital including the strategic planning of campaigns and driving organic growth, I founded my very own agency which, at the time, was called SEO Positive.
I now have more than 12 years’ experience in the SEO and digital marketing industry. Throughout my time as an agency owner, my expertise has expanded to PPC, Display Advertising, Landing Page Optimisation and more.
With a wealth of experience across a range of markets, I’ve had the opportunity to work with some incredible brands including the National Autistic Society and National Childbirth Trust.
Now, my agencies global client base benefit from full support across each stage of the marketing journey. Find out more about the marketing services we provide, below!
About Absolute Digital Media
My agency venture started in 2008 with SEO Positive, an agency designed to provide expert SEO services. However, having experienced early success within the business, I changed the name of the agency to “Absolute Digital Media” to highlight the fact that we were no longer just an SEO agency.
We started to integrate other digital marketing services into the mix and now Absolute Digital Media offers a range of Digital Services, Web Services and Brand Management Services. Some of our most popular services include SEO, PPC, Content Marketing, Email Marketing and Social Media!
We’ve been lucky enough to work alongside some of the most well-known businesses in the world including Ladbrokes, Supercasino and ILX and have experience in boosting sites online visibility across a range of industries. This includes construction, finance, automotive, tourism, travel and legal.
Over the past 10 years, we’ve collected a number of award wins and nominations amongst other accolades including the award for ‘Best Use of Search’ in the Finance and Professional Services category and the Drum Search Awards. In 2019 alone, we achieved a total of 16 award nominations for some of the biggest awards in the digital marketing sphere including the UK Search Awards, European Search Awards and UK Agency Awards!
Why Absolute Digital Media?
As CEO, I often get asked why I decided to re-name the agency to Absolute Digital Media. The word “absolute” can have a number of meanings, including:
- “Without limit, very great, or to the largest degree possible”
- “Certain; not to be doubted”
- “Used when expressing a strong opinion”
Essentially, I re-named the agency to “Absolute” Digital Media to incorporate these meanings and, as the experts in digital, our recommendations are “not to be doubted”.
Within Absolute Digital Media we have a number of specialist marketing teams working behind the scenes to ensure each business’ online success. Each team has years of experience between them, with a number of our staff being a part of the team for several years now.
Our motto is “We’re not just an agency, we’re your partner” because we believe in making sure that each client’s aims and objectives are met through our practices and strive to ensure that we go above and beyond expectation across all levels.
Where Absolute Digital Media Is Heading
We’ve come a long way over the past few years, having started out as an SEO agency. We’re now proud to be one of the few full-service digital marketing agencies based in Essex and London, providing marketing support to business across the globe. In the next few years, we plan to continue to grow our client base and welcome even bigger businesses on board with us.
