1. When prospective clients Phone in

Without search engine optimization (SEO) or pay-per-click (PPC) advertising, it can be incredibly difficult to maintain a web presence for your business or even reach new customers.

Wondering about the difference between SEO and SEM? Read our definitive guide. Get in touch to learn more from an Augur, today. 

2. When your SEO Strategy Kicks In…

Search engines don’t always make it easy for marketers to win, especially as more features are added to the search engine results page (SERP).

While they may be useful for searchers, these SERP features can make it more challenging to lure traffic even when you’re able to knab the top spot.

This is why it’s often best to launch your digital marketing operations with a one-two-punch of both SEO and PPC services.

3. …And the struggle to stay on top begins

Still, page one of Google is the best place to be if you want to be discovered via inbound traffic. Sure, this ‘Google page 2 meme’ is a bit of an exaggeration, but it’s also a (painfully) funny digital marketing joke.

4. Hunting for Keywords can be HARD

Targeting keywords with low search volume can be a smart way to boost extra-relevant traffic for extra-specific searches – but that doesn’t mean that finding those keywords is easy. This is surely one of the funniest content marketing memes of the year. 

5. Some Clients Are Very Demanding


Easier said than done – but we’ll do our best, boss! As a digital agency, we work hard to help our clients meet their business goals through organic search optimization. However, it’s absolutely critical to set goals that are specific, measurable, and attainable.

6. And Troubleshooting Takes Time

Between on-page and off-page SEO, there are many factors for digital marketers to consider before they can (in good conscience) offer solid advice.

At the end of the day, though, it’s all up to almighty Google.

7. Some Clients Are Digital Believers… and some focus on other types of marketing

Media Client Meme

Sure, there are many ways to reach your target audience; but when it comes to calculating your advertising ROI, digital is hard to beat.

Using broad match keywords can be like turning on a fire hose. The impression potential is seemingly never-ending, so ad spend can get out of hand quickly. Don’t say we never warned you!


Retargeting Meme
