Search Marketing

Search Marketing or Search Engine Marketing (SEM) is the practice of increasing website visibility in search engines, in order to drive more relevant traffic to the site through either organic and/or paid media efforts. This is also known as SEO, PPC or Google Shopping. With 93% of online experiences starting with a search engine, it’s essential to be seen in search.

You’re probably on this page because you’re not sure if you need SEO, PPC, Google Shopping or a blend of all three search marketing tactics to make your business stand out. We provide a tailored search marketing strategy for each of our clients to ensure high-quality, relevant work that delivers results.


SEO is the practice of search engine optimisation, a blend of technical changes, keyword research and effective copywriting to help encourage visibility and click-through in organic search results. Organic search results are the listings in search engines that are not adverts and do not have a media budget. Organic search listings are generally viewed as more trustworthy by consumers.

PPC is short for Pay-Per-Click; text adverts that are visible for relevant, pre-agreed search terms or keywords and you only pay the media cost if someone clicks on the ad. This format is particularly useful for service based businesses. This search tactic gives you a lot of control and visibility but it must be consistently optimised in order to remain cost-efficient and effective.

Google Shopping

Google shopping is the perfect platform for product focused ecommerce businesses. Unlike PPC which is purely text based, it features product images, prices and customer reviews. This information is fed in real-time via an API directly from your website and its stock levels - meaning your adverts remain consistent with the status of your online store.

The recipe box industry is a very competitive market space. We understood that in order to build exposure and stand out from the crowd we needed expert help.

When we launched DOSE our Google presence was poor and organic traffic was slow. Tribe came to us at just the right time, equipping us with the toolkit for success that has changed our business for the better with a 1,983% increase in organic visibility (169,000 to 3.52m impressions) in just 3 months.

I wouldn't recommend Tribe if I hadn't used their services myself and to great results. Ollie & Emily have extensive retail/brand/digital experience - more over they are both very intelligent, kind and honest people who provide recommendations as if your business is their's.
