Digital marketing is complicated, rapidly changing, competitive, and overwhelming. It's hard for anyone to keep up. We partner with businesses to provide strategic, data-driven, holistic, and ethical coaching to help them attract new customers and grow their companies.
Where we've been
Mark Sherman founded Nehmedia in 2002. In our early years, Mark concentrated on researching search engines. That research resulted in a multi-faceted keyword research and search engine rankings that helped identify the most influential websites and people. This proprietary data gives us insight into each market to help even small companies compete successfully.
We are a Google Certified Partner & were one of the original Google Analytics Authorized Consultants, now called a Google Analytics Certified Partner. We've worked with enterprise-level clients and mom-and-pop local businesses. We would love to work with you.
