Steve manages a unique group of creative people, both technical and artistic, who actually read briefs and even more profoundly, use them as foundational direction.

Content and SEO Team

For clients who prefer organic lead generation as opposed to paid advertising, targeted and optimized content is key. With our research guru by her side, Sharon manages her content and SEO team with only one thing on her mind, tangible results for Baker Marketing clients.

All content created by Sharon and her team is part of a bigger plan, a plan that has been created using insights from keyword research and other online spying (ethical) techniques, to achieve results, no matter how competitive the market.

Sharon understands the importance of creating content that is perceived to be valuable by the targeted reader, so her team of writers, be they digital, social or traditional media specialists, write to inform, educate and entertain.

As with all the Baker Marketing teams, interaction is the norm and the content team, being writers of persuasive copy, B2B and B2C, work closely with the Research and the Paid Ads and CRO teams in particular.

Paid Ads & CRO Team

When clients are paying money for digital advertising on platforms such as Google, Facebook and YouTube, then conversion rate optimization (CRO) or try the old-fashioned term (ROI), is key.

Digital advertising can get you fast results, but it can also get you fast losses if not managed carefully by experienced and dedicated online advertising specialists.

Sadie, with our sales guru Patrick by her side, manages a team of metric maniacs, who live and breathe online advertising using terms such as PPC, CPV, CPC, CTR, CRM, e-CPM & LCV as though their lives depended on them.

What all these terms really refer to is the testing and measuring the team implements to help ensure a positive result for the only metric that clients really care about, ROI.

Fast turn-around feedback, with the content/copywriting team closely involved, really epitomises the integrated and coordinated approach that you only get, from Baker Marketing.
