Did you hear? Optimising have been nominated for three SEMrush Search Awards!

While the team are super pumped about it, I can hear many of you saying “What’s that and why should I care?”

The SEMrush AU Search Awards celebrates the success of online marketing professionals in the Australian market. Top marketing campaigns and best marketing teams that work in online space that bring exceptional growth and revenues to companies will be recognised and rewarded.

We all know that the SEO industry can be a bit of a weird place, so being recognised for the actual work we’re doing (all nominees had to submit hard data on campaign success), is an acknowledgement that we’re making all the right moves.


So what are we up for?

Best Local SEO Campaign

For our local SEO work with Cycles Galleria.

Best use of Search - Finance

For our high quality link acquisition strategies with Mortgage Broker Melbourne.

And last but not least…Young Search Professional of the Year

Our very own Brodie Clark has been recognised as one of the top up and coming talents in the SEO industry.

We’re certainly up against some great competition in all categories, but we’re going in very optimistic and we’re looking forward to the awards night at the Sydney Opera House in a few weeks.

May the best SEO win!

Working in the SEO industry for many years alongside some of Australia’s biggest brands, James started his online career running online Sports Fan sites, as well as cutting his teeth on several successful eCommerce brands and content sites.

Previously holding various senior roles across the Sales and Marketing teams for ASX listed companies, he went on to found Optimising with Daniel and is proud he has helped mould it into one of Australia's leading SEO agencies.

When he’s not in the office he’s at home having pretend tea parties, or building a cubby house in the lounge room with his three young girls.
