Veterans in the SEO Niche

Our founder, Jon Payne, started in the SEO world before Google was even the biggest search engine? That’s right, back in the early 2000’s the acronym “SEO” didn’t even exist, and the relatively few savvy internet marketers who were around would target search engines like Alta Vista, Excite, Dogpile and Yahoo! In 2003, Payne started Ephricon Web Marketing, one of the first true “SEO agencies”. The firm was originally based in Baltimore, MD and then moved to Charlotte, NC. The company was sold in 2013, after which Payne began turning his SEO chops to a small group of personal websites – as he had signed a non-compete relating to client work. Hence, Vocational Media Group was born.

By 2019, with the non-compete agreement not expired, Vocational Media expanded and began taking on clients (again) for our search engine optimization services. Initially it started with a few clients who Payne had worked with many years before, and then word-of-mouth began to spread. Nowadays we continue to work with both our own websites as well as client websites – applying the learnings from our own projects to benefit the companies we partner with.

Practicing What We Preach

As mentioned, we aren’t just an SEO agency. In fact, the majority of our revenue comes from our own web-based businesses – each of which generates the vast majority of its income from organic search traffic. We aren’t just consultants, we’re doers.

Big Agency Resources, Small Agency Touch

When you hire Vocational Media, you are getting a team that will handle all aspects of your organic search presence. We’ve got staff on-hand to handle all aspects of the organic search campaign – web developers to implement technical changes, researchers and copywriters to create new content, marketers and social media folks to run promotional campaigns, etc. All of the full-scope resources that you’d expect from a bigger agency.

But we’re not a bigger agency – we’re a small firm that values each client. We believe in building long-term relationships with our clients, and really getting to know the ins and outs of their business. This gives us the edge over the SEO company your competitors hired.
