Get more website traffic fast
Search engine marketing is the practice of marketing a business using paid advertisements that appear on search engine results pages (SERPs). Advertisers bid on keywords using platforms like Google, Bing or Social Media.

Choosing the right service for your business
In an ideal world, all businesses would combine both SEO and SEM to achieve the best possible results and maximise website traffic. However, if your budget doesn’t allow for this, then you may need to choose between the two. To help you decide which is right for your business, let us explain the main benefits of each.
SEM achieves results faster
Whilst both SEO and SEM can provide you with lots of new traffic, SEM is a quicker and easier way to convert money into conversions.
You can expect to see results from a PPC or Paid Social campaign within 1-2 months, whilst SEO can take up to 4 months to start seeing results, depending on the size and scale of the project.
How much do SEO and SEM cost?
SEM requires an initial investment to publish your ads. The amount you invest can vary depending on several factors, including the keywords being targeted. Once you stop paying for the ads, you will stop receiving traffic from the campaign.
When you pay for SEO services, you are investing in long-term results. Once your website has been optimised and is ranking consistently you don’t need to keep paying to maintain its position, although you will need to keep your website up-to-date.
The monthly cost of setting up and maintaining a single paid SEM campaign can start from £700 depending on size, scale, and complexity of project.
For SEO campaigns, the monthly retainers generally start from £1,500 based on the client’s circumstances.
Which option provides the best results?
Both our SEO and SEM services are effective at driving a lot of new traffic to your website.
However, they are usually used for different purposes. SEO provides a long-term solution, whilst SEM offers a quick boost in website traffic when you need it the most.
Once your website has been optimised, you will continue to receive traffic without any further investment. However, traffic from SEM campaigns will stop as soon as you stop paying for the ads.
Which is more technically difficult?
There’s a clear winner here: SEO.
Search Engine Optimisation is much more complex than SEM. Optimising a website takes a huge amount of work, requires a lot of prior knowledge, and involves a lot of testing to prove effectiveness.
In comparison, SEM campaigns are generally a lot more straightforward to set up and run.
