Results-driven, professional digital marketing consultancy
We believe that what makes us special is the results we get for our clients. Now, if you’re anything like us, you will be pretty cynical about unrealistic promises and overblown claims.
In a world full of marketing speak and hyperbole, we don’t promise more than we genuinely believe we can deliver. We will be straightforward with you and open about the risks and the challenges of every project and we will always work hard to make good on our promises.
We never hide behind jargon or mysterious claims. We don’t need to. We are confident in the work we do and our knowledge.
We used to promise that we wouldn’t use jargon at all but that is getting harder and harder to keep. SEO is getting more complex and often more technical. People often say to us “I just can’t understand it all!” And we understand why they say that. We also understand that we need to give you a context for the work we recommend – no one should expect you to work on blind faith. To help make sense of this situation, we use a LOT of analogies. Some daft, some funny, some (although we say it ourselves) brilliant! Whenever there’s something to explain, we will try to find a real-world simile to give you the insight you need to make a judgement on our work.
We are always open with clients and, if we don’t have the answers, we can call on our strong network to help us find them.

She spends at least 4 hours per month on training (typically 2 formal sessions per month) and sharing best practice with SEO professionals from around the World.

Kate firmly believes that “prevention is better than cure” when it comes to Google rankings and she regularly advises clients to “fix problems” before they even become problems.Since 2003, Kate has been developing Branchout and acting as SEO director for other agencies.

Between work and study, Kate enjoys a diverse range of activities from Ashtanga yoga to swimming or riding her motorbike.

Digital marketing accreditations to give you confidence
When you are working on your website, it is really important that you get advice you can rely on. We believe this means you should talk to someone who has invested in professional training courses from leading experts in their fields. We also believe this means that we have to have an ongoing commitment to keeping up to date on developments in SEO, Local Search and social media. We do this by attending regular Google Hangouts, participating in a Mastermind Group and attending monthly Mastermind Connects with Planet Ocean (view our certification page). This takes time and money but we believe that it means you can trust us to provide first class advice.
