What makes WebCertain special is that we offer search marketing services in multiple languages from one team in one location and that we specialise ONLY in international campaigns. Our team is made up of native speakers of all the world's major languages from all corners of the globe making us truly international. However all core operations are based in the York World Language Hub office, giving consistency and efficiency to multi-language campaigns. WebCertain also currently has client service centres in London, Oslo and the US and is expanding to new locations all the time, to offer that extra level of local time zone client support.
With more and more companies entering the global arena, international search is becoming increasingly integrated into online marketing plans - and WebCertain is the one stop shop for all of those needs. Our combined linguistic, cultural and technical expertise allows us to run campaigns which will be effective for both humans and search engines in as many markets as you want to target. Our client services team enable you to have only one point of contact for all campaigns, saving time and money and facilitating open and regular communications.
Every company and every marketing strategy is different, and in order to get the best results possible we keep our service very flexible, easily adapting to our clients' needs and often trying new ideas. Our experience across different sectors and our knowledge of local search engines allows us to implement the most effective and dynamic campaigns for each website.
WebCertain has been a company with a global vision from its inception 12 years ago, which happened when the Head of European Marketing for a major brand failed in his mission to find a company offering multilingual SEO (search engine optimisation) services. Eventually he persuaded a web design service to create such a service and the rest is history! The client, Andy Atkins-Krüger, bought the company in 2002 and since then the service portfolio and client base has rapidly grown.
Andy trained as a linguist and then worked as a journalist before founding a public relations consultancy Partners PR with Hugh Venables in 1988. From PR he moved into marketing, but seems to have finally found his home in search marketing. He was previously also involved in product development and has won two Millennium Product awards which he had presented to him by Tony Blair and David Blunkett. He regularly speaks at conferences around the world on the topic of international search.
