It's time to fire your agency and move in-house.

Who are we?

SearchSprints is a consultancy who is focused on helping online brands move away from agencies and build strong, motivated, well-trained in-house search teams that beat the competition. The competitive landscape of advertising is finally becoming too much to afford to have an agency to handle everything. We believe that for brands to compete in 2019 they need to 1) bring core competencies in-house from agencies, 2) diversify to non-paid channels, and 3) reorganise your company to optimize for LTV.

We facilitate that through:
  • Hiring and scaling your next SEO team.
  • Training your SEO team and staff.
  • Auditing your SEO agency and existing team.
  • Fully-managed SEO and SEM campaigns (limited client intake).

We're best suited to work with:
  • Ecommerce businesses with revenues over $100k/mo.
  • Affiliate publishers with earnings over $10k/mo.
  • SaaS companies with over 1,000 customers.

Why the move to in-house?

The dynamic between advertising agency and advertisers is changing rapidly, as more and more clients are moving their marketing efforts in-house. Big name advertisers have already started transitioning to a 100% dedicated in-house team, like Proctor and Gamble, Unilever, Georgia Pacific, and Verizon. It’s a bold move, as clients want more oversight, control, and ultimately better ROI. Rising ad costs will require brands to focus on internal operational excellence to sustain growth.

At SearchSprints, we believe mid-level advertisers will benefit the most from eliminating the middle man and creating more dynamic and accessible management of their advertising efforts. Leverage our systems, pool of candidates, and management expertise to create a strong in-house search team that moves the needle for your business. You'll be shocked to find out the real costs of running an internal team vs. hiring an agency (on avg. over 50% cut in costs) — and not just that, when you work with us ...

  • We'll manage hiring and staffing your team
  • We'll manage strategy and execution of the strategy
  • Leverage our team management practices and procedures.
  • Leverage our internal training practices.
  • Leverage our teams great culture and team attitude.
