about basilisk sem

Your story: you’re fed up with marketing agencies.

We felt the same way. Our founders were fed up with the status quo of traditional marketing agencies, and how they always seemed to be one-sided.

the  basilisk  white  glove  service.

We at Basilisk SEM believe that small and medium sized businesses deserve the same level of marketing service as the largest companies in the world. How do we do that you ask? We have a limited client base by design. Plus, we only work with clients whose businesses we are passionate about and only businesses we know can be successful in the digital marketplace.

What that means for you is:

A Real Partner

You’ll have regular, direct video consultation with a tight-knit, communicative, hands-on dedicated team of specialists dedicated to your company and your vision

Total Transparency–And Answers

You’ll have 24-hour access to live reporting dashboards including your organic, social and paid performance metrics as well as your creatives and A/B testing developments.

We Respond Quickly Because Your Time Is Valuable

Our response time is the fastest on either side of the Mississippi. For email we usually respond in under 30 minutes. But we can promise a response from our team in under 2 hours. Moreover, we actually give our clients our cell phone numbers to reach us at any time for any reason if something comes up.

No More Excuses

Yes we are experts in all the usual paths of digital marketing–and some unusual. We also understand sometimes you just need a team to get scrappy and figure out something new or unique to your business. You will never hear excuses from our team, just solutions.

No More Entrapping Contracts

Money talks. You know how we mean everything we’ve said? We bill month-to-month with no contracts or cancellation fees. If for any reason you’re not happy with our service, we will give your money, data, blogs, site, account or anything else you need back–end of story.

Our Story

THE DIGITAL MARKETING INDUSTRY NEEDS A CHANGE

We’d bet Barry the Basilisk’s wattle you and your business have been burned by a marketing agency in the past.  Predatory contracts, sub-par service, non-existent communication, sketchy reporting, obscured results, “proprietary code”, stolen accounts, stolen data, the list goes on and on. In fact, we think we have the whole list right here. Do any of these sound familiar?

r

Most agencies have a bare minimum model–AKA as long as the client keeps paying, there is no problem.

r

Your agency was amazing until you signed a lengthy contract. Then they weren’t as attentive.

r

Your agency is secretive and protective over your ad account or data, choosing carefully what they share with you.

r

Your agency’s reporting doesn’t match the reporting in your ad platforms, or the reporting is so confusing you can’t tell what’s going on.

r

Your agency blames your business or your product for the lack of results.

r

Your questions are met with “Trust us, we’re the experts.”

r

Your agency launched an expensive campaign without taking the time to understand your business or your customers.

r

You agency passed your ad management to an account executive with little experience.

r

Your agency keeps your ad account or your website when you leave due to their “proprietary” code, strategy or API.
