Our story so far.
How we became a dedicated SEO Service Agency.
Our approach is rooted in transparency. We pride ourselves in educating our partners on SEO’s benefits, a pillar of online marketing that is wrongly shrouded in mystery. From the offset, we want our partners to understand what we are doing and how this will have a tangible, positive impact on their businesses.
A1 SEO has very humble roots. Initially, the company (previously GMS Digital) was founded by Graham Grieve in 2014 to help bands, artists, and not-for-profits with their marketing efforts.
After some success, small businesses started coming to us for more complex marketing activities. Due to the demand, the company quickly transformed into a full-service digital marketing agency offering everything from SEO to social media management and web design.
It became pretty clear to us that we were one of many jack of all trades type digital agencies offering a wide range of services with only average knowledge in everything but search engine optimisation.
Late in 2016, the company moved all social media management, graphic design, and web design over to trusted niche specialists to focus purely on SEO. In this area, our team’s passions lay.
It just so happened that we developed this passion during an exciting time of change for the SEO industry. Google had recently released a handful of exciting updates that forever changed the SEO landscape. With our newfound focus, the team continued to deliver results. Lots and lots and lots of results.
In early 2019, we rebranded GMS Digital as A1 SEO to reflect our focus on search engine marketing. By this point, 94% of our business was purely SEO and PPC, the other 6% being development projects that shared close synergy with SEO projects and targeted influencer outreach campaigns.
We dedicated our efforts to championing SEO within business community. With understanding passed on from experienced industry professionals comes concrete, integrated marketing strategies that help businesses dominate their niche.
