Other Great Products

Social Media Management

Social media is an important part of every business in 2017. At EM Search Consulting we can construct a unique social media program for your business. We also offer targeted advertising programs on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social networks that are specific to your business. Contact EM Search Consulting today for a free consultation to discuss your social media strategy.


Retargeted Advertising, also known as remarketing, can be used as a retention strategy for your website visitors and customers. For example, when a visitor leaves your website and visits other sites such as social networks and news websites, they will be ‘followed’ by custom ads and messages from your business. You may choose to show them products that they have viewed, event or sale reminders, or general ads for your business. This is a highly-targeted form of advertising because it delivers ads and messages which are only displayed to people who are interested in your products and services.

Content Writing

Content writing is a growing component of search engine optimization. Most websites do not have enough content to be authoritative. Content is important for both user experience and search engine optimization. Our dedicated team of content writers are well versed in many industries and offer exceptional content.


Many businesses overlook photography. The truth is your website and your marketing materials are only as good as the photos you use with them. Stock photos are an ok option for some businesses but if you want your business to look like YOUR business we have you covered. Our photographers are ready to assist on your next project.


Video is one of the most consumable forms of media in today’s digital world. Having a video to showcase your business and products is important. EM Search Consulting offers video services to be used for professional commercials, web content and more.
