MarketingSherpa's buyers guide to search engine optimisation to be promoted by Elemental

Elemental retained by MarketingSherpa to promote Buyers Guide to Search Engine Optimisation to be released mid-December 2001

05 November 2001, London, UK ----, the United States (US) online Internet marketing publication has appointed Elemental to promote the Buyer’s Guide to Search Engine Optimisation.

MarketingSherpa will be releasing its UK Buyers Guide to Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) in mid December 2001 and require consultancy to start just before release. The campaign is expected to run for an initial one-month period prior to the launch date and will be communicated to off and online B2B marketing media.

The guide, researched by Anthony Muller, provides comparisons of SEO firms, allowing individuals to gauge pricing and services of SEO companies within the UK. In addition to this, the report comprehensively lists many other SEO firms in the UK, and provides more options and choice when choosing a firm. The Buyers Guide to Search Engine Optimisation will astonish the market by revealing some surprising inconsistencies within the United Kingdom (UK) SEO industry.

Anne Holland, Publisher and Managing Editor at explains, “We elected to retain Elemental for this consultancy because we are dealing with a niche sector market and audience. Because we are a US-based organization, we needed a UK consultancy that knows the US and UK market well, including the target audience we were trying to reach. We require an agency that understands the principles of SEM and SEO, so they could interact with audiences and break it down for them, whether they were traditional or digital organisations.”

MarketingSherpa will require the guide to be promoted amongst off and online media. Elemental will be seeking opportunities to communicate the guide beforehand, and once the guide is available. Promotion is to be undertaken predominantly within the UK, with some public relations occurring within the European Union (EU).

The target audience for the guide includes all in-house departments or advertising, new media or marketing agencies. It’s geared up agencies that wish to hire or outsource its Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) marketing, or if they do not have the time or the expertise to run it themselves. The report demonstrates that retaining the wrong SEO firm will have an adverse impact upon a campaign and may even dilute a brand, if the SEO marketing is not managed correctly.

Tim Gibbon, Account Director at Elemental adds, “The guide is quite a significant step for SEM, especially within the UK. It’s the first guide of this nature, so we are extremely pleased to be involved in the promotion of it. It’s an interesting project because we need to communicate across several sectors and mediums to reach the desired audiences.”
