Seer started with one major goal in mind: to help people. Helping people is at the core of how we develop strategies for our Clients, when we volunteer in our local communities, and how we spread knowledge within our industry.
We are in a (very) lucky and unique position. Seer has a lot of organizations and companies reach out to us to work together, and while our team looks to support as many of the folks who reach out to us as possible, we are realistic in that we may not always be the best fit – and that’s alright!
However, we also understand how frustrating it can be to go through the contact process and find that we may not be the right agency for you. (Our contact form is long for a reason: we believe that creating ideal partnerships means that we align on our goals, values, and budget at the onset—but it does take some time to complete!)
To help you through this process, we’ve developed a partnership program consisting of agencies whose work we admire and founders we trust.
If you reach out to us and we aren’t the right fit, we will work with you directly to find the agency that best matches with your industry, goals, and budget. From there, we can even facilitate direct introductions to one of our trusted partners to set you off on the right path.
Below is a quick snapshot of the partners we trust.
Avalaunch Media has been a friend of Seer’s for many years. Seer’s Founder, Wil Reynolds and Avalaunch President, Mat Siltala have been digital marketing conference speaking pals since the late 2000’s. The relationship was furthered when President, Crystal O’Neill, connected with Luke Alley, the VP of Avalaunch, over an online community of PPC Marketers in 2011, and have kept in close touch on each others work since then. We trust them to do excellent work and have been recommending their team since that initial touch point years ago.
Downtown Ecommerce is owned by a longtime friend of Seer’s, Patrick Tigue. In fact, he was employee #4 when we got started. He helped lay the foundation for what our company is today and we have have followed his work ever since.
edgimo Strategic Digital Solutions and Seer Interactive have enjoyed collaborating on technical projects for many years. edgimo’s Founder, Ben Dickinson, and his team have been working with Seer for 10+ years. We’ve worked closely together to help a variety of clients solve technical challenges. Whether it’s a redesign, creative asset development or implementation assistance, we trust edgimo to help our Clients bridge the gap between recommendations and implementation.
Knucklepuck is owned by another Seer alumni, Brett Snyder. He actually started as an intern at Seer nearly a decade ago in 2008 when the Seer team was still in single digits. From there, he moved through our ranks quickly with the ultimate goal to build his own agency, and we’ve been a huge supporter since its inception.
Optimal Marketing caught our attention when we shared a client, and together our teams had a really positive experience. They epitomized “working well in the sandbox,” and we were impressed with their approach to projects, their responsiveness and generally how enjoyable it was working together. The experience led Seer’s President, Crystal Anderson O’Neill, and Optimal’s CEO, Brandon Wentland, to keep in contact for nearly 5 years and eventually grew into this partnership.
SEOM Interactive is a longtime partner and friend of Seer. The owner, Mark Kennedy, is so great at what he does, that we tried to hire him back when Seer was just starting out. Instead, he created his own company, to which we’ve been happily referring business for over 8 years.
UpBuild is a boutique SEO and analytics shop where great technical marketing minds can do
innovative work for clients they’re proud to serve. They know what they’re great at and are proud to
focus on that exclusively.
Mike Arnesen — UpBuild’s founder — first got to know Wil through Wil’s “Real Company Shit” MozCon
talk back in 2012. You might say this contributed to Mike’s decision to ditch working for other SEO
agencies and start a “real company,” UpBuild, in 2015.
