What have the IKROH team been up to this February?

social media monitoring

Yikes, February is almost over! It’s been busy in the IKROH offices this month but we’ve still managed to get up to some bizarre and innocuous deeds, for example:

  • Steve dished out DIY advice
  • Dan’s security OCD reached new peaks when he locked Allie inside the office
  • Allie became a coding whizz overnight
  • We all ate bacon sandwiches
  • Florence (our resident office baby) laughed a lot
  • Jo got distracted by the sun outside (What sun? Oh, it’s gone again…)

And of course aside from all of that there was the usual SEO, PPC, social media, copywriting and general digital marketing wizardry that we are so very good at.

What has your office been up to this month?

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Social Media Marketing (But Were Afraid to Ask)

The live chats at the Vocus webinar a few weeks ago were fantastically lively and informative, with participants answering as well as asking questions that were posed to the scheduled speakers, Deidre Breakenridge, David Meerman ScottBeth Harte, Lee Odden and Brian Solis. As time was tight, not all the questions were answered, so we thought we’d scoop some up from the logs and try to give some insights… (read more)

how to keep your blog exciting

Good Blogging – The Power of the Ewoks!

How do you keep your blog interesting and popular? By programming a mini troupe of AI Ewoks to cavort across your homepage every time someone visits your site? By offering a free back massage to every subscriber? (This would be more effective if you regularly stop traffic whilst out for a jog.) By hosting exclusive real time streaming of an underground Apple VS Google fight club? Yes to all the above. Though they might need some tweaking…

Keeping your blog exciting and interesting is not always easy but is worth the challenge. Producing a blog can be vital for increasing search engine optimisation ranks and delivering important information clearly. From a search perspective, search engines thrive on sites producing fresh and new content, so it’s imperative to make your content unique and engaging… (read more)

Ikroh SEO PPC & Social Media – Discover, Deliver, Dominate!

Ikroh SEO, PPC & Social Media Marketing

Ikroh SEO, PPC & Social Media Marketing

Here at Ikroh, we eat, sleep and breathe the internet. Our experience and passion for SEO, PPC and social media mean that we can confidently say that we can set up and deliver high quality results for our clients. Not only that, but our positive and personal approach creates bespoke and flexible strategies which work for each individual business. We’re not into aggressive and pushy tactics, we’re a friendly company who take the time to understand and work with our customers to get the best out of their business, and find out exactly what they want.

We offer a very wide range of adaptable tactics and strategies to help businesses grow and develop effectively, and increase your presence online.

If you have an online business, we cannot stress enough the importance of Search Engine Optimisation. The majority of online companies fail to thrive, because they are just not turning up on search engine result pages (SERPs). If no one can find your site when they search for appropriate search terms, you will receive no traffic, wasting all the time, effort and money you are putting into your site.

There are different ways of achieving a better online presence. The two most common and most effective are search engine optimisation and Pay Per Click (PPC).

What’s the difference between SEO and PPC?

Search Engine Optimisation implements various methods on and off-page to make your website ‘search-friendly’, meaning that it is easy for search engines to find and index, therefore more likely to rank for your keywords. The aim of SEO is to increase ranking over time by making valuable changes and ensuring that your site contains relevant and fresh content. SEO is a long term process, and is essential for strengthening your online presence, increasing the authority that your site holds, and above all, driving traffic to your site.

Pay Per Click is a more immediate and short term solution, and can be very effective to publicise a temporary offer or new development. With a PPC campaign, you can advertise exclusively to the people searching for your keywords. Your advert will appear alongside relevant searches on Google and Yahoo! and other search engines, and you only pay when a visitor clicks on your advert.

What is Social Media Marketing?

Social Media platforms like blogs, Facebook and Twitter allow you to connect with customers on a personal level and build a community around your brand, increasing awareness, site traffic and encouraging trust in your product or services. Your customers and your target audience are already using social media – why aren’t you?


Getting started with your SEO/PPC/Social Media campaign

Ok, first things first. At Ikroh, we think that our relationship with each client takes priority – we want to know your goals and aims and the way your business works, and we want to make what we do as clear as possible to you so that we can work together to get the best results. We always take time to understand your business in depth so that we can provide the highest level of results and ensure we are targeting the right audience and search results.

We understand limitations in budget. We started out as a small business and even though we have grown, we still like to operate with the approachable and enthusiastic methodology of a small, personal business. Therefore, we will always make sure we provide you with the best possible service that you can afford, not just an off-the-shelf solution according to budget – we are a bespoke service provider, creating unique solutions for each client.

Many online search marketing companies offer a free analysis of your website as a hook, but these are often generic, automated, inaccurate and invaluable – a genuine site analysis takes time, effort and expertise. Ikroh spend a great deal of time making sure the results from our website analysis will help us to provide the best for your company. Our Web Audit service gives you an in depth view of your site’s strengths and weaknesses and we will draw up a fully structured plan to implement changes that will increase the effectiveness and productivity of your site, including optimisation.

If you choose to take on our Social Media services alongside your search campaign, we will conduct a thorough investigation into your sector, your online presence and your target audience to find the most effective way of implementing a social media strategy. This is completely bespoke, since it depends on many factors, and we can help you to become involved to whatever degree you choose.

In all that we do, we make sure that our results are trackable, and put careful Web Analytics monitoring in place to ensure that we can constantly review, analyse and adapt your campaign to ensure its ongoing success. We are approved Google Analytics consultants and know how to use your data to make important decisions and adjustments.


How do we get results and why are we so confident?

We are so confident in our ability to deliver such excellent results for online businesses that we do not tie anybody into a contract. Many companies today require a 6-12 month sign up subscription that you are stuck with, even if you are unhappy with their work.

Here at Ikroh we have a fantastic, friendly team with a massive collective experience. Working as a close team we develop ethical strategies which will increase the visibility of your website and strength of your business. Everything we do at Ikroh is always recorded, tested and reviewed, to make sure you know what’s going on and are happy with it, sending frequent, up-to-date reports and keeping you informed.

We also like to keep frequent contact with all of our customers so we know you are happy and if there is anything you need to talk about we are always here for you.


Be a forerunner in your field, with our help.

Ikroh SEO sets high goals, not only for ourselves but for our clients. We keep our sights on the future, and plan ahead to improve the businesses we work with to the best of our abilities. We put all our efforts and experience to getting your business to the top and are confident that it is always possible.
