Angela had found that most SEO agencies at that time were horrible when it came to copywriting for search campaigns. So she focused only on copywriting for SEO and PPC campaigns.

 Angela had met Brian when they both worked at Yahoo! in Burbank. They shared the same vision for an agency that could not only provide search marketing services, but also write copy for them.

We’re still trying to help as many businesses improve their online revenue by only choosing to work for those businesses we actually believe we can help.

Because if you reach your goals, so do we.
