We are still a relatively young company, and in these early stages of running a business it's imperative that we work with reliable, qualified people
Salt Lake City, UT (Vocus) August 13, 2009
The fast-paced summer of SEO.com continues. Just a month after moving to a new, larger office in Salt Lake County, the Utah SEO firm adds six people to its team. SEO.com has hired more than 20 people since April and currently employs 50.
'We are really excited to bring on another group of talented individuals at SEO.com. Our clients expect the best from us, and we know that it takes qualified search engine optimization specialists to provide the service they deserve. We look forward to working with all our new hires and are certain they will help us maintain our standard of excellence," said David Bascom, CEO of SEO.com.
SEO.com added a PPC (pay-per-click advertising) manager, two SEO specialists, a copywriter, a marketing assistant and an executive assistant.
"We are still a relatively young company, and in these early stages of running a business it’s imperative that we work with reliable, qualified people," said Nelson James, vice president of SEO.com. "We’re sure that our newest employees will contribute to our growth and help us deliver a top-quality service."
With SEO.com's recent growth, the company has become a complete Internet marketing company that offers its clients an array of SEO services that include search engine optimization, copywriting, online press releases, Web design, social media marketing and PPC. The new PPC manager gives the company even more expertise in an area that compliments organic search engine optimization.
"Our new PPC manager brings four years of experience managing large and small campaigns alike. He's been responsible for millions of advertising dollars annually and generating ROI for dozens of clients. He's a great asset and we’re excited he chose us," said Ash Buckles, director of search engine optimization for SEO.com.
Though August is only the peak of what is quickly becoming a record quarter for SEO.com, Bascom has grand ambitions for the future of the company.
"We have big plans for the rest of 2009," Bascom said. "More companies are realizing that Internet marketing is becoming more and more important for business success, and we are on the forefront of that industry."
