With the lines blurring between ‘traditional’ and search marketing, and Google at the start of so many customer journeys, it’s become increasingly important for every marketer to have activities like SEO, PPC and CRO in their skillset
What is search marketing?
Search marketing is the collective description for an industry comprising of several various skill-sets and disciplines. From paid search (PPC) which deals with a variety of ad buying techniques across search platforms and networks to organic search which primes onsite content to perform well in search engine results pages (SERPs) via outreach – which looks to connect high quality content with influencers, social media marketing which leverages social platform audiences and many more. Together these disciplines make up the practice of modern online marketing.
Search marketing is an industry that’s in constant flux. These changes mean that marketers have to adapt to this constantly evolving environment by changing what they look out for, how they analyse potential and what they deem to be high quality marketing.

Why search marketing matters
While in the past search marketing was an afterthought for many marketing departments or marketing agencies, the ever increasing shift to digital for all industries and services has meant that there is little room in marketing for those that have not embraced search. It is likely that this trend will continue and it is safe to say that search marketing is earning the simplified name of ‘marketing’ as it becomes more and more central to the marketing strategies of brands across sectors. In order to succeed your brand has to be where your consumers are – and they, like your marketing endeavours should be, are online.
