Unlike other forms of advertising, you cannot pay to be at the top of any natural search results page. Knowing this, Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is a very effective way of driving targeted traffic to your site. At Fishgate, we implement a comprehensive, organic SEO strategy that focuses on the optimisation of both on-page & off-page elements, as well as technical site issues that may be affecting your ranking. We do all this while giving careful consideration to the content – finding the perfect balance between what search engines are looking for, and what humans will enjoy reading. In addition to our SEO offering, we can also assist you with Search Engine Marketing (SEM) in the form of Pay Per Click (PPC) advertising, which allows us to target specific keywords that are relevant to your business.

We all love a bit of Facebook or Instagram now and then. Whichever platform your business is best suited to, Fishgate can create a captive following for your brand on social media – giving you access to a powerful platform for communicating with potential consumers. We offer full service social media marketing packages that include monthly/weekly content planners (i.e. setting up of editorial schedules and creating content), daily monitoring, moderation and Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Online Reputation Management (ORM), Campaign management and application development and reporting. As specialists in social media and development, we understand the value in developing Facebook and other apps to promote and grow a brand. Engaging with your audience, especially on social platforms, in a unique and creative way keeps your brand at the forefront of social innovation while increasing your viral reach.

We will identify relevant formal digital media properties and platforms for opportunities and handle all planning and placements through ad networks e.g. Google Display Network. This also includes social media ad placement such as Facebook ads, Twitter promoted posts, LinkedIn (recruitment and sponsored updates).

Being a full-service agency, we can also assist with campaign ideas, design and implement creative, and copywriting for display banners and other digital advertising placements.
