About us

Evolved was born out of the belief that there is a better way of delivering performance online. For years, the SEO industry was somewhat mysterious and murky, with the average layman needing a PhD to understand the jargon peddled by many an agency.

The focus was on the ‘what’ and not the ‘why?’, with more emphasis on the tactics as opposed to what the work would actually deliver. We wanted to do search marketing, but better. We wanted to develop a service that was more evolved than the rest.

So, we did.

Since our inception in 2014, we’ve worked with businesses who want to take their search campaigns and online visibility to another level. Combining a clever use of data and a creative approach, we’ve devised and delivered campaigns that have not only achieved impressive performance figures in terms of traffic, engagement, and revenue, but have elevated and enriched our clients’ brand online in the long-term.

Unlike many agencies, we focus solely on three core service areas; SEO, PPC and Content. It’s a powerful trio, with each channel complementing the next, and it allows us to apply a ‘data + creativity = results’ methodology to everything we do.

A relatively young agency we may be, but our team’s experience within the digital industry spans decades. We boast a talented team of strategists, digital marketers, content writers, outreach specialists and designers, each with experience across multiple sectors, who work directly with clients to build campaigns that convert.

A celebrated approach

We’ve been lucky enough to pick up some pretty impressive silverware on our journey, with nods from key industry awards like the prestigious UK and EU Search Awards, most significantly as the recipients of the Best SEO Campaign in the UK in 2016, against stiff competition.

It’s not all about what’s in the trophy cabinet, but we see our frequency on shortlists and as winners as a sign we’re fulfilling our mission and offering an evolved approach to search.

Just a few of the industry award appearances we’ve made include:

  • Shortlisted: UK Content Awards 2018 (B2C Campaign of the Year & Retail Campaign of the Year – Mattress Online, Large Content Marketing Team)
  • Shortlisted: EU Search Awards 2018 (Best Small SEO Agency)
